You can rely on Canon’s Dual Pixel AF system for fast, smooth autofocusing during “live view” and video filming, while the 7fps burst speed is perfect for shooting sporting events. The DSLR has a headphone for high-end audio capture, plus a hot shoe you can use to attach a flash, microphone and other accessories.
