* 6.3 MEGAPIXEL CMOS SENSOR
Canons newly developed large, single-plate CMOS sensor captures images
with exceptional clarity and tonal range. Created through a new high-
precision manufacturing method, this high-sensitivity sensor delivers
ultra-fine accuracy with an effective 6.3 megapixel resolution (approx.
6.5 total megapixels). It features advanced new peripheral circuitry
that enhances image quality, an improved built-in amp that boosts the
S/N ratio, and a superior sensing process that raises the maximum ISO
speed while lowering image degradation during long exposures. The
effective sensor size (22.7 x 15.1mm) has the same 3:2 ratio as film
cameras, enabling an effective angle of view that is 1.6x the normal EF
lens focal length.
* HIGH-PERFORMANCE IMAGING ENGINE
Information captured by the CMOS sensor is processed and assembled into
images of exceptional quality by the new Imaging Engine, the latest
version of Canons exclusive all-in-one DIGIC digital imaging processor.
Color reproduction is extremely natural and details are incredibly
precise, especially with gradations in the highlight areas. In fact,
reproduction is so accurate that noise reduction is unnecessary, even
with long exposures. Through the use of a newly developed signal
processing algorithm, Canons highly efficient Imaging Engine even
accelerates signal processing while consuming less energy.
* WHITE BALANCE AND WB BRACKETING
The EOS 10D enables accurate overall color balance in most lighting
conditions through a number of while balance (WB) options. One auto
while balance mode and five preset while balance modes provide optimum
settings for commonly encountered shooting situations. Precise dialing
in of color temperature in Kelvin values is also possible, with settings
selectable from 2800K to 10,000K in 100K increments.
White Balance bracketing lets you capture three JPEG images (normal,
reddish, bluish) with one shot, and at the same exposure level, with
while balance shifted to +/- 3 stops in whole-stop increments.
* PROCESSING PARAMETERS
Besides the standard processing parameters applied by the camera
automatically during image recording, the user can register up to three
sets of parameters (contrast, sharpness, color saturation and color
tone/balance), with each parameter adjustable to one of five settings
via rear LCD monitor menu. The color tone/balance parameter is mainly
used to adjust flesh tones for portraits, toward the minus side (redder)
or plus side (more yellow). Once parameter sets have been registered by
the user, they can be called up on the menu whenever they are desired
for particular shooting conditions.
* COLOR SPACE
The wide range of selectable processing parameters includes a choice of
two professional color spaces: the standard sRGB color space and the
expanded Adobe RGB (1998) color space, which is useful when you want to
adjust saturation on a computer or print the image out in an RGB
environment. Making the selection that best suits your needs is always
easy with the Canon EOS 10D.
* AUTO and MANUAL ISO SPEEDS
When shooting in a Basic Zone mode (Full Auto, Landscape, Close-up,
Night Portrait or Flash-off), ISO speed is automatically set between 100
and 400 in 1/3-stop increments to suit the shooting conditions. Users
can also choose Portrait mode (ISO 100), Sports mode (ISO 400) or
Creative Zone mode, which allows manual setting of ISO speed to 100,
200, 400, 800, 1600, or 3200 by way on an ISO speed button on the
camera's top panel that has been added for easier operation. When
utilizing the built-in flash, ISO speed is automatically set to 100 in
backlit conditions or 200 in dark conditions.
* JPEG or SIMULTANEOUS RAW+JPEG
Whenever you shoot the EOS 10D, you can choose to have it record in the
JPEG format alone, or in the RAW and JPEG formats simultaneously. Both
recording methods provide six selectable settings for JPEG image
The JPEG file format is ideal for purposes such as Internet image
transfer that require reduced file sizes. Canons proprietary RAW (.CRW)
format, on the other hand, employs lossless compression to ensure the
highest possible quality, and is recorded at 12-bits per pixel to
provide a wider range of tones and superior detail in bright highlights
and deep shadows when compared with JPEG files. RAW files must be
"processed" before they can be opened in your computers image-editing
software. This conversion process typically takes only a few seconds
using the dedicated driver software, which will convert the RAW file
into a standard 8-bit per channel TIFF file or, for maximum tonal range,
a 16-bit TIFF file and transfer it to your PC.
* EXPANDED ZOOM DISPLAY DURING PLAYBACK
When viewing recorded images on the cameras 1.8-inch, high-definition
TFT color LCD, you can enter the Enlargement Mode and enlarge them up to
10x in 15 steps for detailed analysis of lighting, composition, camera
movement, focusing accuracy, facial expression, etc. Simple controls
(direction button and Quick Control Dial) enable horizontal and vertical
scrolling, as well as viewing of the previous or next image stored in
the CF card from the same enlarged view. In the maximum reduced view,
nine images are displayed simultaneously on the approximately 118,000
pixel screen, making them easy to quickly evaluate.
(When the Enlargement Mode in ON and a picture is taken, a small JPEG
image is created and saved within the main image file. By pressing the
display button, the JPEG image is displayed on the LCD, with a navigator
at the bottom right that allows selection of the area to be magnified).
* AUTOMATIC ROTATION OF VERTICAL IMAGES
Whenever you view stored images on the LCD or through the video output
display, images that were taken with the EOS 10D turned sideways are
rotated automatically to the upright position for easier viewing.
* HIGH-SPEED 7-POINT AF
Canons wide area 7-point AF system ensures sharp, accurate focusing with
speedy subject tracking that is consistently maintained even at 3 fps.
This outstanding performance is made possible by advanced focusing
technology including a high-speed microcomputer, a sophisticated new AF
algorithm and AF sequence, and the same AF sensor employed in the EOS
Selection of the AF point can be automated by the EOS 10D or manually
controlled through use of easy-to-operate dials: the Main Dial is used
for selection of the five horizontal AF points, while Quick Control Dial
is used for selection of any of the three vertical AF points. The
superimposed display of the seven AF points in the viewfinder and LDC
panel employs an SI optical system for utmost clarity. If the selection
goes beyond the extreme top, bottom, left of right AF point, automatic
AF point selection takes effect.
* 3 fps CONTINUOUS SHOOTING
With a continuous shooting speed of up to 3 frames per second and a
maximum burst of 9 shots, the highly responsive EOS 10D is equipped to
seize every photo opportunity. The rapid image processing of the high-
performance imaging engine and a generous buffer memory help maintain
this speedy performance regardless of selected recording quality, ISO
speed and subject conditions.
* SHOOTING MODE
The ESO 10Ds convenient shooting modes make it easy to obtain
professional results. Simply select the best mode for the shooting
situation, set options when available, and let the EOS 10D handle the
* 35-ZONE EVALUATIVE METERING SYSTEM/E-TTL AUTOFLASH ALGORITHM
The EOS 10D offers wide-ranging control over exposure through its proven
Evaluative Metering System, which features maximum aperture TTL
metering, 35-zone SPC, three selectable modes and improved overall
precision via new algorithm. The Evaluative Metering mode links to all
AF points, metering the entire image area, while the Centerweighted
Average Metering mode lets photographers apply their own compensation.
The Partial Central Metering mode uses 13.5 per cent of the central area
and cannot be linked to the AF point.
To obtain more stable flash exposures, the EOS 10Ds algorithm for
calculating the main flash output is based on the algorithm used by the
EOS-1V and EOS-1D/1Ds. Since a wide area of the entire image is metered
for flash, the flash exposure remains stable even if the framing is
slightly changed. Meter readings from highly reflective surfaces are
ignored or the weighting is reduced so that it will not adversely affect
the exposure of the subject.
* RIGID MAGNESIUM-ALLOY BODY
The EOS 10D has a solid look and feel that suits demanding outdoor use
and is just the right weight (790 grams) for stable, easy handling. Its
rigid chassis combines engineering plastic with stainless steel and is
covered by strong, lightweight magnesium alloy panels on the top, front
and rear. Controls are ergonomically shaped and positioned to sustain
the EOS tradition of excellent holding comfort and sure-file operation.
The bulbous grip and rubber skin further contribute to excellent holding
comfort, and a black satin finish heightens the look of elite quality.
* CUSTOM FUNCTIONS
17 Custom Functions with 61 settings provide a method of tailoring
certain features and controls to meet your needs. Many of these
functions are similar to those in professional EOS film cameras, while
others allow control of purely digital features. Custom Functions are
easily selectable through an easy-to-use menu that displays text in your
choice of 12 languages (English, German, French, Japanese, Dutch,
Danish, Finnish, Italian, Norwegian, Swedish, Spanish or Chinese).
The EOS 10D comes bundled with a range of convenient software that can
be displayed in any of 12 languages on the TFT menu. The software is
compatible with Windows 98SE/ME/2000/XP, Mac OS 9.0 ~ 9.2, 10.1, and
* EF LENSES
All Canon lenses in the extensive EF lineup, ranging from ultra-wide-
angle to super-telephoto lenses, are fully compatible with the EOS 10D.
This popular lens lineup employs advanced optical know-how and micron
precision engineering to deliver unprecedented performance that
facilitates artistic expression.
Aspherical optics and Fluorite elements, for example, are featured in
universally acclaimed L-series lenses. And Canons landmark Image
Stabilization technology minimizes the effects of camera shake.
* DIRECT PRINTING FROM CAMERA
This convenient feature lets you print beautiful photos with minimum
time and effort - directly from the EOS 10D. Simply connect the camera
with any capable Canon printer via the provided dedicated USB cable to
print images stored in the CF card. You can even set the EOS 10D to trim
the image, add a surrounding "frame", superimpose a date, or print a
number of copies. The EOS 10Ds direct printing feature complies with
EXif ver. 2.2 (EXif print) and DPOF ver 1.1.
* BUILT-IN FLASH
An automatic retractable flash unit is built into the EOS 10Ds
pentraprism hump. It pops up and fires automatically when shooting in
the Full Auto, Close-up or Night Portrait modes, and in low light and
backlit daytime conditions. It can also be manually selected via flash
button when utilizing Creative Zone modes. Features include a maximum X-
sync speed of 1/200 seconds, a recycling time of approximately 3
seconds, and a red-eye reduction lamp that illuminates before the flash
