With the lightest body of any digital EOS camera, the EOS 1000D incorporates a range of technologies used in Canon’s professional EOS-1 series cameras, including the DIGIC III image processor, and Live View mode.
Canon EF-S 18-55mm IS Lens included
EOS 1000D Highlights
The number of megapixels determines the amount of sharp detail a digital camera can record. With more megapixels, you can print at larger sizes, plus crop and enlarge without sacrificing quality. EOS cameras provide all the resolution you need for finely detailed, photo-quality prints with plenty of scope for post-shoot cropping.
A 10.1 Megapixel sensor lets you capture every scene in ultra-high levels of detail – perfect for turning your experiences into poster-sized photo prints.
7 Point Wide Area AF
The precise auto focus system of the EOS 1000D keeps you focused for sharp images. Featuring a diamond-shaped array of seven AF points, this newly improved system delivers outstanding coverage of nearly any subject, both in horizontal and vertical formats. The seven AF points — one high-precision cross-type center AF point with f/2.8 sensitivity and six others compatible at f/5.6 — provide fast, accurate auto focus for any Canon EF lens even when shooting in low-light environments. Focus points can be assigned automatically using one of three different AF modes or manually.
EOS Integrated Cleaning System
The EOS Integrated Cleaning System combats sensor dust in three important ways: Reduce, Repel and Remove. The camera's Self-Cleaning Sensor Unit shakes dust particles off of the low-pass filter in front of the sensor. The dust is then trapped by an adhesive along the base, preventing it from causing further nuisance. Cleaning is engaged each time the camera is powered up or shut down or manually through the "clean now" function.
Canon’s revolutionary DIGIC image processors work at the heart of every EOS digital camera. It is the power of DIGIC that delivers the superb EOS image quality, responsive camera performance, faster AF, faster continuous shooting and extended battery life. DIGIC processors are so fast they can read, process, compress and write image data back to the buffer between exposures, reducing the data
2.5" LCD with Live View
The Cameras Live View mode makes it easier to shoot from awkward angles, such as ground-level macro shots or when shooting from a tripod. A grid line display and live histogram can be selected to help with shot composition and exposure. While focusing, the photographer can zoom in on specific details with up to 10x magnification of the image displayed on the LCD screen.
The EOS 1000D is supplied with a comprehensive software suite that provides everything the photograph needs to manage and process images. This includes Digital Photo Professional (DPP), a powerful RAW converter that provides complete RAW image processing control.
EF / EFS / EX
The EOS 1000D camera is fully compatible with all Canon EF and EF-S lenses, as well as EX-series Speedlites.
