Advanced 14-bit A/S Conversion

Canon's EOS Digital SLR cameras utilize advanced 14-bit converters to process the output of the imaging sensor. Tonal transitions are almost indiscernible; gradations are incredibly natural with infinitely superior colour fidelity. As EOS Digital SLR cameras record RAW images at 14 bits, the processed 16-bit TIFF images contain the full range of tonal values as captured by the sensor.

Auto Lighting Optimizer

The Auto Lighting Optimizer feature automatically adjusts brightness and contrast levels, allowing captured images to achieve an optimal and balanced exposure. Images with areas of under - or over-exposure can be easily corrected without compromising on inherent shadow and highlight details. The Auto Lighting Optimizer is both an automatic feature as well as adjustable for use in other modes. This feature can be applied in post-processing for RAW mode shots.  

Chromatic Aberration Correction

Chromatic aberration, more commonly known as colour fringing, happens in digital imaging. This occurs when colours are not focused through the lens at the exact point on the camera's sensor. This issue can be amended with the built-in feature found in certain EOS Digital SLR models performing the correction. These cameras come stored with correction data for quite a number of lenses, further relieving photographers of the need to reconfigure settings when they switch lenses.  

CMOS Sensor

The innovative CMOS sensors developed by Canon enable incredibly sharp pictures to be captured yet limit the likelihood of large power consumption. Unnecessary charge transfers are reduced, thus prolonging battery life. Cameras equipped with CMOS sensors are proven to be highly responsive as the data transfer speeds are increased by the use of multi-channel signal paths.

Canon's CMOS sensor technology speeds up the process of sensors transferring signals to the image processor, as each individual pixel has its own amplifier. Even at high ISO speeds, resolution and quality are not compromised by low-noise performance. A low-pass filter sieves out false colours detected by the CMOS sensor while retaining full detail when processing the image. Various EOS models contain differing numbers of low-pass filter.



EOS Digital SLR models with full-frame sensors do not require a focal length conversion factor. Unlike other digital SLR cameras in the market, EOS full-frame cameras deliver the angle-of-view similar to 35mm film cameras. This unique feature provides greater control over the depth of field essential to creating beautiful portraits and close-up shots with an ideal amount of background blur. At any ISO value, a full-frame CMOS sensor possesses a larger light-gathering area for significantly reduced noise levels.
 

DIGIC Imaging Processor

A seamless transition from the capturing stage to recording stage is ensured by the cutting-edge signal processing technologies of the DIGIC Imaging Processor chips. Together with the CMOS sensor, the DIGIC Imaging Processor uses advanced signal processing algorithms and a high-speed DDR-SDRAM buffer to produce a highly responsive camera. This results in an intuitive shooting experience with undeniably true-to-life image quality.

The fast processing speeds of the DIGIC Imaging Processors has made possible a number of features such as Live Face Detection AF, HD video recording, Auto Lighting Optimizer and Lens Peripheral Illumination Correction.
 

EOS Integrated Cleaning System

Designed for unflagging performance even under the harshest shooting conditions, the diligent EOS Integrated Cleaning System takes comprehensive measures to minimise the effects of dust particles on images by removing dust through an effective mechanical method, as well as using the bundled Digital Photo Professional (DPP) software.

Should any dust manage to make it pass the camera's anti-dust measures and fall onto the low-pass filter, it is shaken off using high-frequency ultrasonic vibrations. Every time the camera is powered on or off, this routine is automatically activated. The dust is then trapped on a sticky lining surrounding the filter assembly, and is prevented from ever falling back into the assembly.

For cleaning via software, simply capture an image of a plain white sheet in order to create Dust Delete Data. This data is basically a map of the sensor and where any dust may be located, and can then be appended to every image for the Digital Photo Professional (version 3.2 or later) software to automatically minimize the effects of dust particles.
 

Highlight Tone Priority

Highlight Tone Priority deals with images that suffer from loss of detail due to overexposure by cleverly identifying the problem areas. These areas are then fixed by expanding the gradation range within the highlight regions, resulting in subtle image details being preserved with richer and more realistic colours.  

Lens Peripheral Illumination Correction

This correction feature brightens the edges of an image where light falloff has occurred, thus enhancing image quality. Based on the specific Canon lens used, the Lens Peripheral Illumination Correction data is automatically detected by the camera and applied to JPEG format images. The illumination characteristic and correction data can be loaded manually onto Canon's EOS Utility software and also available in post-processing for RAW images via the DPP (Digital Photo Professional) software.  

Autofocus Technology

Distinguishing itself with the multi-point AF systems that are acclaimed for sensitivity and precision in capturing images under various conditions, EOS DSLRs remain a cut above the rest.

The EOS-1D X and EOS 5D Mark III both have a 61-Point High Density Reticular AF with 41-cross type points that provide wider AF coverage, exceptional high-precision focusing, and increased subject tracking capability. This AF system comes with a new AF Configuration Tool that controls AI Servo AF parameters to suit various shooting conditions. These parameters determine tracking sensitivity, acceleration and deceleration of tracking subjects, and AF point auto switching.

On top of this, the EOS-1D X also boasts the remarkable EOS Intelligent Tracking and Recognition (iTR) technology which utilizes colour information and face detection to track a subject. Tracking and focusing a subject based on colour information and face detection technologies allow photographers to concentrate on composition, especially important in sports photography.

And when light levels are really low, the EOS 6D's 11-Point AF system which is responsive down to EV-3 at the center AF point, is great enough for exceptional moonlit night shooting.

A firmware update that supplements the current capabilities of its complex AF system is now available for the EOS-1D X. This new update fixes the viewfinder information such as the AF points to display in red when auto focusing and in AI Servo AF. The center AF point is also now enabled to autofocus even when the camera is used with lens/extender combinations whose maximum aperture is f/8.
 
One-Shot AF
For static photography such as portraiture, One-Shot AF mode is typically engaged for optimal results. Using single shot auto focusing, the camera selects prime focusing points, and brings even off-center subjects instantly into focus.


AI Servo AF
The AI Servo AF mode on the other hand, is designed specifically to track quick-moving subjects. In this mode, the camera automatically detects and tracks subject movement across the wide AF coverage area, the active focusing point shifting vertically and horizontally as the subject is tracked.


AI Focus AF
In ambivalent situations where the subject's movement is highly variable, the AI Focus AF mode enables the camera to switch automatically between the One-Shot AF and AI Servo AF modes depending on subject movement.


Durability

Built upon by generations of camera-crafting ingenuity, the EOS range of cameras is a truly exceptional marvel that has withstood the test of time. Consistently top-notch in quality, EOS cameras are constructed with the finest materials and with much attention paid to the details.

With its lightweight yet high-strength properties, magnesium alloy is used as housing for most of the top-range EOS camera models, and even provides sufficient electromagnetic shielding. Topped by a highly durable paint finish and having been extensively sealed against the elements, these cameras are both moisture- and dust-resistant, and hold up admirably under harsh conditions.
 

Exposure Control

An essential component in capturing a good shot, EOS Digital SLRs offer a great degree of control over exposure with its exceptionally precise auto exposure (AE) and wide range of metering options.

Evaluative Metering
Full-frame Evaluative metering reads the composed scene based on a number of zones, from 35 to 252, depending on the camera. The results from each zone's reading are then analysed by a built-in microcomputer, and the camera applies the optimum exposure to the subject accordingly.

Center-weighted Average Metering
Center-weighted average metering takes a reading from the entire scene, but with emphasized sensitivity on the central area where most subjects tend to be, for more consistent results.

Partial Metering
Partial metering is weighted towards the center of the viewfinder, but meters a larger area than spot metering, and is generally used when there are very bright or very dark areas around the edges of the frame area.

Spot Metering
Spot metering measures a very small area of the scene, usually focusing on the center of the scene, but on top-range EOS models, metering can be moved around to link to an AF point.

Tailored specifically for the EOS 5D Mark III's 61-Point High-Density Reticular AF system is the new 63-zone Intelligent Focus Color Luminance (iFCL) metering sensor. This dual-layer system help prevent the issue of underexposure when shooting subjects with plenty of reds by having one layer sensitive to red / green light and a second layer sensitive to blue / green light. It takes a combined reading of data from these two layers to provide an accurate light reading.

The EOS-1D X has brand-new RGB metering sensor with approximately 100,000 pixels, and performs general metering in 252 zones or 35 zones for low-light metering. Powered by a dedicated DIGIC 4 processor, this new EOS Intelligent Subject Analysis (iSA) system performs review on colour information and subject detection for positive compensation of appropriate exposure.

 

High-Speed Continuous Shooting

Fascinating scenes and subjects sometimes go by in flash, and this is where EOS Digital SLRs truly shine. Built to capture these blink-of-an-eye moments, some EOS models are capable of continuously shooting up to 12 frames per second (fps). The EOS-1D X even has a Super High Speed mode capable of continuously shooting up to 14 fps in ONE-SHOT AF - an impressive world-first*.

For fast shooting speeds, quick response is further bolstered by a shutter lag of 55 microseconds, with an option within the camera's Custom Functions to reduce shutter lag even more, down to a minimal 36 microseconds.

* world-first as of April 2012, according to a Canon survey


Intelligent Viewfinder

Framing the perfect shot is just the job for the perfect viewfinder. Canon's top-of-the-range digital SLRs are equipped with fantastic viewfinders that provide an almost 100% field of view. The EOS-1D X even flaunts a viewfinder with a 35° angle of view, 0.76x magnification and aspherical lens which minimizes distortion and colour aberration, resulting in a clearer and sharper picture.

This next-generation viewfinder uses a liquid crystal overlay to provide a clear and precise display of focusing points and zones, on-demand grid lines, and a spot metering circle. The Intelligent Viewfinder can be found on the EOS-1D X, EOS 5D Mark III and EOS 7D. When used for composing shots, photographers are able to check on a variety of shooting information.

To prevent the screen from seeming cluttered, the Intelligent Viewfinder flexibly offers customizable combination of information, or for nothing to display at all for clear-cut shooting.

 


EOS 1D X AF system



AF Points Display
Selected AF points can be displayed or hidden away depending on the photographer's preference.

Hide All
Once exposure and focus are set, this setting hides all information on the viewfinder, and allows for full concentration on image composition and capture.

Grid Display
Useful when composing and framing scenes, this option overlays a grid on the image within the viewfinder.

Spot Metering Display
Only the selected metering area is displayed, with all other metering areas and focus points hidden.

Dual Axis Electronic Level Display
Only available in certain models this feature is greatly useful in shooting landscape and architecture. On the rear LCD screen or within the viewfinder, the level displays both pitch and roll in 1° increments.

Multi Shot Noise Reduction

Fine details and reduced noise levels are possible even at high ISO speeds, thanks to the Multi Shot Noise Reduction function. Four images are shot consecutively and then superimposed for a final image with effectively reduced noise. This function can reduce blur caused by shakiness when performing handheld shooting in low-light conditions.  

Operability and Custom Functions

Shooting for hours on end is made all the more comfortable by an ergonomic camera that handles well and performs smoothly. The EOS-1D X and EOS 5D Mark III have been designed to meet the exacting demands of professional photographers.

The intuitive layout of buttons and dials allocates all camera settings to be made with the right hand, with image review and in-camera processing to be done by the left hand. Most EOS cameras come with Custom Functions buttons placed near the front for easy access to frequently used features. Custom Functions are set through the camera menu system.

Designed for comfort and operability, the firm grip provided by the camera's fluid form and the well-placed buttons promise hours of uninterrupted shooting. Even when shooting vertically, the camera's vertical grip is shaped for easy access to the buttons.

To save the hassle of delving into multiple menus in order to adjust camera settings, a Quick Control button is available for a more fluid shooting experience. Functions and operations are consolidated in the menu for quick access, leaving the photographer free to concentrate on composing and capturing the perfect shot.
 

Silent Shutter Mode

The Silent Shutter mode on the EOS 5D Mark III and EOS 6D is ideal for discrete handheld shooting. When engaged in this mode, as the shutter and the mirror's reflex actions are driven slower for significantly reduced noise.  

Built-in Wi-Fi and built-in GPS

Photo sharing has become a ritual with people of all ages and the EOS System has kept up with the trends by incorporating built-in Wi-Fi and GPS capabilities on the EOS 6D.

All at the fingertips, shoot and share pictures and videos between different devices by using wireless file transfer. Still images in JPEG format and movie files can be shared directly between two Canon cameras equipped with an internal wireless LAN function.

Picture and video sharing can even go to the extent of being streamed and viewed on DLNA- certified media players using a wireless LAN connection. Another great wireless advantage provided by EOS 6D is direct cable-free printing with compatible Wi-Fi printers1.

With the rising popularity of smartphones, Canon has developed the free EOS Remote app2 that, with the built-in Wi-Fi function, allows users to manage the EOS 6D remotely from their iOS or Android phones3. Photographers have the liberty of composing and shooting from a distance by using the EOS Remote app without having to refer to the camera's LCD camera.

The convenience is further boosted by the ability to change shooting modes, alter camera settings, review captured images, all through the smartphone. Now also a key to social networking, the EOS 6D can instantly upload images and videos to cloud servers or mainstream social media sites such as YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter.

The built-in GPS function4 is a great and prompt aid for photographers located in remote locations. Positional information such as longitude, latitude, elevation and local time can all be recorded onto the images. For adventure seekers, the GPS logger function on the EOS 6D can track the precise route that was travelled and show where each photo was taken. This function provides total ease of mind for photographers who need to take note of such details.

Clear View II LCD Monitor

Native to the EOS-1D X is the 3.2-inch Clear View II LCD monitor that has approximately 1.04 million dots resolution, a wide viewing angle, and high-fidelity natural colour reproduction. The glass surface of the monitor and the liquid crystal panel are glazed with an anti-reflection layer for easier viewing of images with lower exernal light reflection. From reviewing images during playback to verifying focus with the Live View operation, and filming Full HD video, the images are shown with high contrast, bright colours, and rich blacks.  

Touch Screen LCD Monitor
A unique feature of the EOS 650D is its Touch Screen LCD monitor which promotes flexibility and ease of use with superior visibility. Operations such as selecting AF points and shooting in Live View modes are easily controlled by familiar multi-touch gestures on smartphones. Simply swipe the screen to see the images or rotate the screen to suit viewing preferences. A smudge-resistant coating minimizes lingering fingerprints, and keeps the display clear and bright.
 

Vari-Angle LCD Monitor
A welcome addition for photographers on the lookout for fresh perspectives, the Vari-Angle LCD monitor that debuted with the EOS 650D is specially designed with a hinge to swivel out in almost any angle. Photographers shooting in any situation are able to simply twist and tilt the monitor for previously unattainable angles, while the display remains sharp and clear. The Vari-Angle LCD monitor is capable of tilting forward 180°, backwards 90°, and sideways 175° for flexible shooting in low and high angles.
 


Creative Filters

Jazz up your photography with the Creative Filter effects when shooting with certain EOS models. Creative Filters offer limitless possibilities normally achieved by using certain film cameras, specialty lenses or post-processing means.

The artier filters are such as the Art Bold effect for an oil painting result, and the Water Painting effect for a gentler watercolour painted image with softer colours. A filter like Toy Camera adds dark corners called a vignette effect to images, and comes in different tints. For another film-like simulation, try the Grainy Black and White filter with adjustable contrast. To imitate the effect of a tilt-shift lens photo, the Miniature filter creates a diorama effect by playing with the depth-of-field. The Fisheye filter also mimics the effect of being shot by a specialty lens, namely the fisheye lens. The Soft Focus filter imparts a dreamy look on an image, and the degree of softness can be controlled.
 


Digital Photo Professional (DPP)

Professional photographers are better able to streamline their workflows thanks to a dedicated data processing engine which enables high-speed RAW image processing and preview. This bundled software also supports sRGB, Adobe RGB and Wide Gamut RGB colour spaces. This makes EOS cameras compatible with the latest Canon printers, for high-resolution image processing, while also providing superb support for consistency in colour-managed workflows.

Canon's groundbreaking Digital Lens Optimizer is a feature that counteracts common problems in achieving crystal clear images. Issues such as aberrations, diffraction, and inadequate exposure due to the use of low-pass filter, often lead to optical image deterioration. The Digital Lens Optimizer solves these problems by identifying the causative factors and changing them into mathematical functions (optical transfer functions or OTF). It then applies the inverse functions which makes all the necessary corrections, resulting in a significantly improved image. Factors such as aberrations, diffraction, and low-pass filter influence vary for different lenses and cameras, and they also are dependent on shooting parameters. The Digital Lens Optimizer therefore uses inverse functions that are carefully optimized and based on accurate data. This makes it possible to compensate even for complex and asymmetric aberrations such as coma.

Incorporated in the Digital Photo Professional software which comes bundled with the latest EOS cameras, the Digital Image Optimizer promises compelling image sharpness, regardless of the lens.
 

Effective Direct Printing

With support for PictBridge and Direct Print, EOS Digital SLRs simply have to be connected to compatible printers for instant direct printing without needing to use a computer. Photographers can further crop images before printing, select paper size or type, print multiple copies, or create index sheets complete with shooting information.

Canon's PIXMA Pro-series photo printers are the ideal endpoint to the photography process, as these printers deliver exceptional print performance and great colour management solutions, so that images stay true even in print form.
 

Electronic Level

Helping to achieve perfect picture orientation is Canon's Dual Axis Electronic Level display aids, found in certain EOS models. Vital to architecture and macro photography, the Dual Axis Electronic Level is visible in either the viewfinder or the LCD monitor, in Live View mode or as a standalone. It displays both roll and pitch in 1° increments, and helps greatly in accurately composing scenes with large subjects.  

EOS Full HD Video

EOS Digital SLRs are equally capable when it comes to recording superb high-quality movies with relative ease and superior performance as when capturing still images. Powered by the latest core technologies, certain EOS models can capture HD Video with notably reduced moiré, even at high ISO speeds. Offering a full 1920 x 1080 resolution HD video capabilities, these EOS models let photographers shoot an array of intriguingly detailed footage when coupled with various compatible EF lenses. Whether going for the wide angle, macro, tilt shift or fisheye view, the EOS system offers a wealth of creative video shooting options that were once only possible for still photography.

EOS cameras help to streamline post-production workflow by providing different HD video formats. The ALL-I compression format, found in the EOS 5D Mark III, EOS 6D, and EOS-1D X, results in larger file sizes and is an edit-friendly format that compresses frames individually. The IPB compression format produces smaller file sizes as it compresses frames in groups. Image quality, however, is not compromised and remains crisp and clear.

ALL-I compression is when each frame is compressed individually as all frames are treated as key frames. Though this type of compression results in larger file sizes, it is easier to edit or remove frames without affecting image quality.


Suited for longer recordings without resulting in overly large file sizes, IPB compression references both previously captured frames and subsequent frames. By storing data in grouped frames, this compression method reduces overall file size.


In-camera editing of video clips is possible with selected EOS Digital SLR models; the first and last scenes of each clip can be cut so as to preserve only the important moments in-between. Not only does this reduce post-production time, it also helps to save precious memory space in the camera. The EOS-1D X also comes equipped with SMTPE-complaint time code embedding and recording in P, Av, TV and Manual modes.

The EOS 600D further comes with the new Video Snapshot feature in its movie shooting options. Video Snapshot works by capturing short video clips of 2, 4 or 8 seconds, and then joining these clips together into a single clip. This great movie-making feature allows for greater freedom in creating exciting and compelling series of clips.
 

Handheld Night Scene Mode

New to the EOS 650D and the EOS 6D is the Handheld Night Scene mode where four shots are captured consecutively at a fast shutter speed to prevent camera shake. The images are merged and aligned in-camera automatically. Photographers who shoot without a tripod at night would find this mode handy.  

HDR Mode

For visually stunning images with very fine details, the High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode on the EOS 5D Mark III and EOS 6D allows for the merging of three images of different exposures into one final image. This method ensures complete capturing of subtle gradations in shadowy areas and highlighted tones in bright areas.

Adjustable a range of ±3 stops, and with 5 different effect settings on the EOS 5D Mark III, HDR mode expands the parameters of the light and dark detail a camera can actually record, to create images that are incredibly vivid and highly detailed for expressive results.

A new automatic mode on the Mode Dial of the EOS 650D and EOS 6D is the HDR Backlight Control mode. Engaged in this mode, the camera will take three shots continuously at decreased, standard, and increased exposures. The three images are then merged and aligned automatically in-camera, resulting in a single image with minimal loss of highlight and shadow detail, especially in backlit conditions.
 

Live View AF

Fitted with the useful Hybrid CMOS AF and Touch AF features, the EOS 650D is capable of shooting under unstable lighting conditions and with constant movement.

The new Hybrid CMOS AF system now holds pixels dedicated to phase detection autofocus and helps in predicting subject location. In Live View mode, phase detection is used to estimate the correct distance to focus, before contrast detection further fine-tunes this focus.

This combination of two AF technologies results in faster and more accurate focusing for Live View and video shooting. Continuous AF is maintained as the camera is constantly focusing on the subject in-frame until the shot is taken. Through the camera's touch-screen monitor, the user is able to specify a designated AF point can be moved to a subject right on the screen.

Different auto-focusing methods in Live View shooting are Face + tracking mode, FlexiZone - Multi, FlexiZone - Single, and Quick mode. In Face + tracking mode, the system is able to track and focus on faces, even in side profile. The AF point will track the face, and if multiple faces are detected, the AF point can be moved to another desired face.

For easier focusing on a moving subject, FlexiZone - Multi is suitable as it is better able to cover a wide area, using automatic selection of up to 31 AF points or 9 zones for zone selection. When using FlexiZone - Single to focus, only one AF point is used to focus on the subject, and to move the AF point, simply tap on the LCD monitor. Lastly, in Quick mode, an automatic selection of AF points can be used to focus, or choose to focus on only one AF point by manually selecting on the monitor. This automatic selection is made based on the number of AF points available in viewfinders of different EOS models.

 

Live View Function

Canon's remarkable Live View Shooting function is highly valued by creative photographers as shots can be composed and captured directly from the camera's LCD monitor. An enhanced zoom of up to 10 times the normal size to check focus is possible, and photographers are able to navigate the composition at the same time. A grid overlay, ideal for architectural photography, is also available. The Live View function can be operated remotely in a studio by using a computer via the camera's USB connection, or wirelessly if using a Wireless File Transmitter.  

Movie Servo AF

The Movie Servo AF function on the EOS 650D benefits from the Hybrid CMOS AF to provide precise focus tracking. By locking onto the moving subject's face, the function keeps the subject in focus, no matter where it goes or how it moves. It also automatically tracks the subject even while the distance to the subject is changing. Movie Servo AF is applicable with Canon's range of lenses.  

Multiple Exposure Mode

Unique to the EOS-1D X and EOS 5D Mark III is the Multiple Exposure mode to create superimposed images once only possible with film cameras. These two models offer 4 different exposure settings within the multiple exposure shooting options - Additive, Average, (Comparative) Bright and (Comparative) Dark - to control exposure and composition. The EOS 6D model offers the option of either Average or Additive exposure control. Multiple exposure shooting is done in JPEG format and can be used in combination with existing RAW images. The combined result can be viewed and corrected in real time on the camera's LCD screen.  

Picture Style & Picture Style Editor

EOS cameras are armed with the Picture Style function which makes it simple to get optimum image quality based on preferred moods or shooting subjects. Picture Style presets include Standard, Portrait, Landscape, Neutral, Faithful, and Monochrome.

The Standard preset, for an example, would be sharp with adjusted colour tone and saturation for vivid colours. But when shooting human subjects, using the Portrait style would result in more natural colours with less sharpness for softer skin tones. On the other hand, capturing majestic scenes on the Landscape preset will sharpen outlines and bring out the brilliant blues and greens of the outdoors.

Manual control of colour tone, exposure, contrast and focus can be done in the menu for all of the presets. These presets can be used in the same way as one would use unique types of films for various conditions. Certain EOS Digital SLR models are equipped with Picture Style Auto for easier adjustments based on the camera's scene detection technology.

More presets can be created with Canon's Picture Style Editor, a software that allows creation of custom Picture Style files. To download additional Picture Style content, simply go to http://www.canon.co.jp/picturestyle/file/index.html.
 

Remote Capture Via Computer

Shooting normally using the viewfinder may sometimes present problems such as awkward angles and unattainable views, all of which are easily resolved by the flexible Live View function. The Canon Remote Live View function allows shooting via a computer. The photographer double-tasks by viewing the real-time output on the computer's monitor, while inspecting for focus, moiré, colour, composition, lighting and exposure before capturing the image by remotely releasing the shutter through the computer.  

Scene Intelligent Auto

This is a powerful feature that combines five EOS Digital SLR technologies. Scene Intelligent Auto examines every scene in detail such as the subject's face, colours, vividness, movement and contrast, before enhancing the entire scene for maximum visual impact. Faces are sharpened, colours are made more vivid, brightness is optimized, movement is properly captured, and contrast is boosted.  

Canon PIXMA Photo Printers

Capture stunning images with the comprehensive EOS system and complete the experience with Canon PIXMA photo printers. The perfect complement to your EOS system, PIXMA photo printers deliver indisputable output quality and printing performance with a wide range of paper sizes and finishes.  

EF Lens

Canon's legendary EF lens system is a world-class icon synonymous with superior digital images. Perfected by decades of determined research and innovation, the EF lens system is an amalgamation of advanced optical, microelectronic and precision manufacturing technologies.

The extensive range of over 60 highly acclaimed lenses is ever expanding as Canon continues to offer new lenses with specialized elements, coatings and in-built Optical Image Stabilizers.

 




L-Series Lens
Pro photographers have long held the L-Series lenses in high esteem. Signified by a bold red ring around the outer barrel, this series of lenses tops the entire EF lens system, and are an epitome of sophisticated Canon technologies such as Ultra-low Dispersion UD glass, Fluorite and Aspherical elements, and Super Spectra Coating.

EF-S Lens
Created for EOS DSLRs with APS-C sensors, these lenses are optimized for the smaller sensor size by being engineered smaller and lighter while performing capably to produce excellent results. The EF-S lens range covers an impressive wide array of focal lengths with cutting edge optical technology.

Specialty Lens
Fisheye - The full-frame fisheye lens can focus as close as 8 inches (0.2m) and distorts an image for a result that is either very widely panoramic or circular. Ideal for super wide-angle and special effects photography, the lenses deliver exceptionally sharp images throughout its focus range.

TS-E
- Special tilt-shift lenses reveal a whole horizon of creative shooting possibilities with its unique tilt and shift movements. By tilting, a wider depth of field can be obtained even at maximum aperture and the full subject in focus. By shifting, perspective can be corrected at almost any angle, especially useful when photographing tall subjects such as buildings.

Macro - Ideal for making miniscule subjects larger-than-life, macro lenses bring to light a variety of minute details otherwise missed by the human eye.

Softfocus - Canon's EF 135mm f/2.8 with Softfocus is a prime lens specially created for portrait photography. By a rotation of three settings, the lens' spherical aberration correction can be controlled to adjust the sharpness or softness of the focus. This lens is perfect for smoother colours and gentler lighting in images.

 





GPS Receivers*

GPS receivers are vital tools for photographers shooting in remote regions or foreign land as these receivers record location details such as latitude and longitude, altitude and direction information. The GPS receivers can be operated as standalone devices, or double up as a digital compass. Also equipped with time synchronization function, these receivers are an indispensable and multi-functional tool for the roving photographer.

* In various countries and regions, the use of GPS may be restricted. Please use GPS in accordance with the laws and regulations of your country or region.


 

Speedlite Range

The Speedlite range of external flash units provides the perfect intensity and exposure of light on just about any subject. Whether it is for the amateur or professional photographer, Canon Speedlites are easy to operate and meet the demands of any shooting exercise effortlessly.

Sensors that are built-in on current EOS cameras measure the brightness of reflected light from the subject, and this determines the exposure for autoflash on the Speedlite. The E-TTL II autoflash metering provides versatile flash exposure control with the distance information of compatible EF lenses. E-TTL II metering is capable of minimizing the occurrences of underexposure with straight reflections as well as overexposure when photographers lock and refocus.

LED light - Featuring a unique built-in LED light, the Speedlite 320EX provides illumination for video shoots or as a modeling light. Fixed with fully charged AA batteries, the LED light can last up to four hours of continuous shooting.
 

Wireless File Transmitters

Transfer images securely
The Canon Wireless File Transmitter allows the speedy transfer of images to a computer or FTP server wirelessly. Every photographer's personal IP is protected and a secure transmission is assured with FTP transfer, whether it is to a computer locally, over a network or over the Internet. Unsuccessfully transferred files will automatically be resent upon restoration of network connection with a useful resend feature.

Wireless LAN
The Wireless File Transmitter, when in HTTP mode, allows up to three users to be logged in to the camera through a web browser.

The accessory's advanced remote-control capabilities allow photographers to connect a single camera to a computer using PTP connectivity. With up to ten slave cameras in sync with a master camera, linked shooting can be achieved with the wireless LAN accessory. On top of that, users can conveniently control their cameras with any mobile devices that has a browser. These are ideal setups for wildlife or sports photography, especially when the subject can be captured from several angles.

Both small and lightweight, the WFT-E6A (for EOS-1D X) and the new WFT-E7A (for EOS 5D Mark III) add minimal bulk to the camera. These transmitters perform faster with the IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n standards, providing wireless LAN connectivity. While the WFT-E6A features an additional Bluetooth connection, the WFT-E7A can be connected via hot shoe or USB.
 

Wireless Multiple Flash System

Thanks to wireless technology and the Speedlite range, cumbersome wires and connections are a no longer needed, and multiple-flash photography proves a simple setup. The master unit is a typically a flash transmitter connected to an EOS camera, and other units, known as slave units, are placed in various positions away from the camera.

Compatible Speedlites communicate via radio transmission or infrared signal, and the master Speedlite is able to control five groups and up to 15 Speedlite slave units with radio-controlled, two-way wireless transmission up to 30 metres. Top-range EOS models are capable of controlling between three and five groups of slave units, while other EOS models are able to work with up to two groups of slave units.

The newest type of wireless flash control for the latest Speedlite models is the Radio Wireless system using 2.4GHz radio frequencies to control slave units. By using radio transmission, the Speedlites have a better and extended range without needing a line-of-sight connection between master and slave units.
