With the wide variety of Digital SLR models from Canon, questions come up as to how each differs. How does the 5D Mark II compare to the 5D Mark III? A 60D to a 70D? The Rebel T5i with a T4i? And what do the shutters sound like? Those are the questions that I seek to answer with the CanonCams App.

* Features of CanonCams
The main screen can be sorted to the precise Canon DSLR sensor that you desire: Full Frame, APS-H or APS-C. Zoom in on individual cameras exposing details such as Sensor Type, estimated MSRP, Megapixels, ISO sensitivity, Memory Card Slots/Type, etc. All of this is completely offline, no web data is called upon. This means you can access the App’s main functionality without an Internet connection.
* Camera Compare Feature
Enabled via Options or Camera Details screen. After selecting the first camera, press the "Compare" button. From the list that appears, choose the camera that you'd like to compare. Both cameras will appear on screen side-by-side. Rotate your smartphone to a landscape orientation for best viewing. Additionally, new cameras can be loaded and compared by clicking either camera image.
* Info via the Web
Ready to add data via the Internet? Open the Options screen. Here you can toggle Amazon.com, Pbase.com and Canon.com websites to show up at the bottom of each camera’s details page. Choose one, two or all three in any combination.
- Toggling the Amazon.com look up button gathers up-to-date information on pricing, availability and reviews. Click on the Amazon links to see reviews, additional specs, etc. You can even shop right from the App. For trouble-free Amazon.com info, make sure the option is selected before launching the first camera.
- Curious as to the type of photos that a particular camera produces? Use the Pbase.com toggle and you’ll see a sampling of the camera’s capabilities. (Note: Due to lack of images on Pbase, Flickr.com and Canon's Sample photos are used for some models))
- Toggling Canon.com brings you right to the camera’s specific Canon page.
* Shutter Sounds
Not only can you *see* Canon’s cameras, you can *hear* them as well. Each Canon has a unique shutter sound. Click the shutter button along the App’s right hand row (Grey designates Full Frame, Yellow APS-H (1.3x crop), Red APS-C (1.6x crop) and listen to the various camera shutter personalities. 14 different shutters are now available.
