A 6.3 Megapixel Canon CMOS sensor delivers superbly detailed images. 7-point high-speed AF allows precise focusing over a wide area. A powerful DIGIC (DIGital Imaging Core) processor optimises colour rendition. High speed processing means a continuous burst of 9 shots at 3 frames per second is possible. It also extends the camera's battery life. The EOS 10D can write RAW and JPEG files simultaneously, while there's a choice of 6 JPEG resolution settings.
For enhanced exposure stability, the EOS 10D has a new evaluative metering system for both daylight and flash. As well as sRGB, the EOS 10D features Adobe RGB. This improves colour rendition by capturing colours across an extremely wide spectrum. An ISO speed range from 100 - 1600 (3200 Extended HI accessible via the ISO expansion menu) offers extensive shooting flexibility whatever the lighting conditions.
9 white balance modes are available - Auto, Daylight, Shade, Cloudy, Tungsten, Flourescent, Flash, Custom and Colour Temperature. In Colour Temperature mode, users manually select the warmth they require from the Kelvin scale (2800K to 10000K in 100K increments). With White Balance Bracketing, the EOS 10D automatically captures three bracketed shots (normal, reddish and bluish) with one release of the shutter.
An Intelligent Orientation Sensor detects whether the camera is being held horizontally or vertically when shooting. This gives mor e accurate exposures. It also means easy viewing and editing, since shots appear the right way up on the LCD, in ZoomBrowser on the computer screen or on TV.
The EOS 10D's LCD offers 5 levels of brightness. It can be brightened so it's easier to see or dimmed so it's less intrusive and saves power. The menu display offers the choice of 12 different languages.
With a robust magnesium alloy body, the EOS 10D has outstanding durability and a distinctive presence. It features an ergonomic hand-grip which makes extended shooting very comfortable.
The EOS 10D is the first digital EOS camera to feature Direct Print. High resolution prints can be obtained by connecting straight to a Canon Bubble Jet or Card Photo Printer. The EOS 10D has FAT 16/32 data storage, allowing compatibility with high capacity CF cards over 2GB. The EOS 10D is compatible with the extensive EOS range of accessories.
