Canon has also include a number of modes to maximise the quality of images for certain purposes. Live View mode and movie recording allow the Auto Focus system to automatically and rapidly sharpen and focus subjects within 80 percent of the image display area, which should result in fewer blurred pictures.
 
Playback mode allows cropping of photos into four aspect ratio sizes, including the popular 4:3 ratio. The original photo will be kept after the crop. Six family-oriented scene modes, such as Kids, Foo, Candlelight, HDR Backlight Control, Night Portrait, and Handheld Night Scene, can help budding photographers tailor the camera settings to their needs. Blur Simulation gives users a look at what a blurred background will look like in real-time, to help focus the viewer's attention on certain content.
 
Canon also announced the EOS 700D, a high-performance digital SLR camera with a touch-screen. It comes with most of the same features and modes, but the fold-out screen adds additional usability.
