Digital Point & Shoot vs. Digital SLR
Through-the-Lens (TTL)
Shutter Speed and Aperture
SLR cameras use “through-the-lens” (TTL)
metering. This means that the exposure is
determined from the amount of light
actually passing through the lens which
will “take” the picture, providing much
greater accuracy.
SLRs offer a wide choice of shutter speeds. A fast shutter speed is necessary to freeze
action successfully. A slow shutter speed, on the other hand, is often used to capture an
image in very low light or for artistic effect—to exaggerate running water, to interpret
motion poetically. The adjustable aperture of an SLR likewise affects depth of field which
represents how much of the foreground and background are in focus. With a head shot,
for example, photographers will opt for a shallow depth of field. As a result, the subject is
sharp, but the background, which would distract the viewer, is blurred, almost abstract.
Interchangeable Lenses
Another major advantage an SLR has over
a point-and-shoot camera is that a lens
can be removed and other lenses and
accessories can be fitted to the camera
body. This versatility, along with high
image quality, is a prime reason for buying
an SLR. In addition SLRs offer photographers enduring construction and compatibility with a broad range of accessories,
including lenses from which to choose.
Flash Capability
SLR cameras can be equipped with powerful flash units which can light subjects up
to 70 feet away. Flashes on point-and-shoot
cameras have a limited range, usually
about 10 or 15 feet. SLRs can also be
connected to or synchronized with studiolighting equipment for more sophisticated
exposures. Photographers can hook up
their SLR to studio lighting equipment and
use soft lights or hot lights to create
appealing portrait and product photos.
Manual Control
With an SLR camera, the photographer has complete creative control. With a point-andshoot, the camera has control—it automatically selects the aperture and shutter speed,
thereby reducing the amount of influence the photographer has on the final image. SLRs
require the photographer to make more decisions. But, that very control means the camera can be adjusted to a variety of lighting and focusing situations. For example, a backlit
subject easily confounds most automatic exposure systems. A knowledgeable photographer however, can compensate by using a greater exposure than the automatic recommendation. Similarly, a window between the subject and the camera can fool most
infrared automatic focusing systems. Manual focus wouldn’t be fooled.
SLRs and Point-and-Shoots: Which do you need?
A good way of looking at SLR versus point-and-shoot cameras is to think of each as a
very specialized tool—like different types of wrenches. Picking the right tool makes all
the difference in doing the job right.
◆ Digital point-and-shoot cameras are
easy to use, give good results, and are
very affordable. Today megapixel + resolution can be had for well under a
$400. Long the choice for family pictures and vacations.
◆ They are also used in business. They
capture portraits for corporate ID
cards, illustrating real estate brochures,
or putting images on web sites. Pointand-shoot cameras are auto everything:
focus, flash and exposure. Taking
pictures is a snap—look through the
viewfinder, press the button, and the
camera captures the picture.
◆ SLRs cameras are better suited for
capturing images in low-light situations
and have more precise focusing. The
option to select shutter speed and
aperture and the flexibility to use
different lenses give the photographer
greater control over the final result.
◆ They feature autofocus and a choice of
manual or a range of automatic exposure modes. However, for more sophisticated projects, such as creating sales
flyers, catalogs, technical and training
manuals, and many other applications,
photographers are much better served
by an SLR.

SLRs have no parallax error. The photographer sees exactly what the lens sees—
especially important when taking close-up
photographs. Another advantage is that
the photographer can attach the camera
to a telescope or microscope, fit diffusers
or masks over it, and still see the precise
image the lens will produce on film.
The single-lens-reflex (SLR) camera provides many capabilities not found in snapshot or point-and-shoot
cameras – such as interchangeable lenses and other accessories – which give photographers greater control
and flexibility. SLRs allow photographers to check image sharpness visually. The effects of changing lenses or
adding attachments are immediately visible in the viewfinder.
Technically, the SLR differs from the point and shoot camera in that an SLR uses one lens for both the viewing
and taking of a picture. Just before the SLR shutter opens, a mirror, which has been reflecting the image into
the viewfinder, flips up, allowing the image to fall on the CCD—as the shutter opens. This makes for more
accurate framing, especially when photographing close-up subjects. But there are many other differences.
6.3-Megapixel Digital SLR Camera
The EOS Rebel has gone digital. Leveraging the design, engineering,
and manufacturing expertise from their EOS pro-digital SLRs, Canon

SLR Performance
Canon’s original Rebel was the first to bring SLR excitement to everyday photographers. Now The EOS Digital Rebel makes SLR photography
even more rewarding, with state-of-the-art automatic systems for unmatched performance.
◆ Among the Digital Rebel's most exciting attributes is its high quality autofocus technology,
designed to enable you to capture decisive moments with accuracy and speed. Utilizing
the same 7-point AF sensor as in the EOS 10D, the Digital Rebel is capable of analyzing
where a subject is — even when it is off-center — and immediately bring it into focus. It
can also analyze subject movement and automatically select locking or tracking AF
modes as appropriate. These features serve to simplify the camera's operation while
maximizing its performance. For even greater creative control, the Digital Rebel offers
the choice of automatic and manual focusing point selection.
◆ 7 focusing points are laid out in a cross pattern on the uncluttered viewfinder, using a
superimposed optical system for utmost clarity. The camera can detect your subject and
select the proper focusing point, or choose a focusing point yourself. Either way, the
chosen point will be illuminated for no-surprise focus. Dioptric Adjustment with a dedicated dial (-3.0 - +1.0 diopter) lets you shoot comfortably with or without your glasses.
In 1990, Canon’s first EOS Rebel revolutionized photography. In the following decade,
the Rebel evolved to give its legions of fans even more photographic freedom. Now it
achieves its ultimate evolution. Equipped with Canon’s exclusive “Digital Trinity” – 6.3
Megapixel CMOS Sensor, Imaging Processor and compatibility with over 50 of Canon’s
superb EF lenses – the Digital Rebel breaks definitively through every remaining barrier to truly deliver photography without limits. Create memorable images no matter
what your level of experience. Nurture your creativity with easy controls and a world

◆ Highly responsive autofocus makes
shooting with the EOS Digital Rebel
exciting and spontaneous. The camera
automatically employs one of 3 AF
systems to let you seize every photo
opportunity with fast, accurate focus.
– One-Shot AF ensures precise, carefree
focus in all-around shooting.
– AI Servo AF tracks active subjects to
predict their movement, making
continuous focusing calculations right
up to the last possible moment for
dynamic stop-action shots.
– AI Focus AF switches between One-Shot
AF and AI Servo AF when it senses that
subjects are starting and stopping. It's
perfect for children, pets, wildlife and
other unpredictable subjects.
◆ Rapid image processing and a generous
buffer memory maintain sharp, accurate
focus with speedy subject tracking even
in the Continuous Shooting Mode, allowing you to capture split-second action
sequences at 2.5 fps with a 4-shot burst.
35-Zone Evaluative Metering
◆ 35-zone evaluative metering ensures
accurate, consistent exposure, taking
into account lighting extremes and subject position through the active focusing
point. Whether light is bright and sunny
or darkly atmospheric, whether it
comes from the front or the back, exposure is detailed, natural and flattering.
◆ Control is there when you want it, with
Partial Metering to bring extra sensitivity to high-contrast situations, or Centerweighted Average Metering in manual
exposure mode.
◆ The camera offers an extensive range of
ISO speeds, allowing you to quickly
compensate for shifting light conditions:
• When shooting in Full Auto, Landscape,
Close-up, Night Portrait or Flash Off
modes, ISO speed is automatically set
between 100 and 400 in 1/3-stop increments to suit the shooting conditions.
• In Portrait mode, speed is set to 100,
Sports, 400, and in Creative Zone modes,
speed can be set manually via the LCD
screen menu from 100 to 1600.
• When using the built-in flash, speed is
automatically set to 400 in Full Auto,
Close-up and Night Portrait modes, and
100 in Portrait mode.
Advanced White Balance
◆ White Balance options including Auto,
Daylight, Shade, Overcast, Tungsten
Bulb, Fluorescent Light, Flash and
Custom modes are available to handle a
wide range of color temperatures so
any shot can look as if it were lit with
pure white light.
◆ Also offers White Balance Bracketing,
which lets you capture three JPEG
images (normal, reddish, bluish) at the
same exposure level with one shot, with
the white balance shifted up to ± 3
steps in whole-stop increments.
➤ The camera’s large-format, high-resolution CMOS sensor captures a staggering 6.3 million pixels (3072 x 2048 pixels) to deliver images that will astonish you with their depth
and detail. As it captures images, the sensor amplifies each pixel's electric charge, for
ultra-fast image scanning that's simply unmatched. A superior sensor design raises the
maximum ISO speed while lowering image degradation during long exposures. The sensor also has a 3:2 aspect ratio, traditional to 35mm film, for a familiar compositional
feel. In short, the CMOS sensor allows the EOS Digital Rebel to achieve film-like quality
while offering all the advantages of digital technology.
➤ Developed by Canon exclusively for the CMOS sensor, the DIGIC Imaging Processor
gives Canon digital cameras a major advantage over other brands. Typical processors
address stray light and false colors (noise) by making adjustments after an image is
recorded which invariably degrades resolution. DIGIC prevents noise from being produced in the first place, so images are clearer, truer and extremely lifelike.
DIGIC also offers “parallel” processing, making the EOS Digital Rebel super responsive
and agile, and high-capacity buffer means you won’t have to wait between shots. Speed
also gives the camera’s automatic systems added precision, so focus, exposure and
white balance are optimized for deep detail, smooth gradation in highlight areas, and
color that is utterly natural.
➤ Canon’s world-renown EF lenses lead the industry with technical achievements like the
elimination of camera shake, smooth operation and unparalled sharpness and color
reproduction. The EOS Digital Rebel is compatible with over 50 of these lenses, from
ultra wide-angle to super telephoto and everything in between, including fish-eye,
macro and tilt-shift lenses.
Comfortable to Use, Simple to Operate
The EOS Digital Rebel is comfortable to carry, making it excellent carry-along on
trips, sporting events and more. Compactly designed (measures 5.6 x 3.9 x 2.9˝
(WHD) and weighs a mere 19.7 oz). it is 30% lighter than the EOS 10D. The titanium
gray metallic finish and new shape give it an appropriately high-grade look, and the
rounded grip is not only stylish, but feels secure and comfortable in the hand.
Careful design has made this

Big Time Playback
◆ The Digital Rebel's shutter speeds range
When reviewing images, users can
zoom from 1.5x to 10x magnification
with 15 levels of adjustment and scroll
left, right, up and down using the cross
keys. You can even advance to the next
shot in enlarged view with no need to
zoom again.
from 1/4,000 of a second to 30 seconds
plus Bulb, while a built-in motor drive
enables the camera to capture 2.5
frames per second in continuous shooting mode for bursts of up to four shots.
◆ There are 12 shooting modes including
Program AE where the camera selects
different shutter/aperture combinations
while maintaining a constant exposure.
Shutter-priority AE to set shutter speed,
Aperture-priority to set the aperture,
A-DEP (Auto Depth-of-Field AE) to set a
“zone of sharpness,” and Manual as well
as Full Auto, Portrait, Landscape, Closeup, Action, Night Scene and Flash Off.
◆ In addition, a JPEG Small/Normal
image mode is exclusively generated
for image playback. As a result, in
the Large/Fine mode, playback time is 3x faster than other cameras.
◆ The Digital Rebel swings back into shooting mode at the touch of the shutter button,
ensuring that the next great shot is not missed while the last great shot is being
reviewed or even direct printed.
◆ In the playback mode, images are automatically rotated to an upright position for more
convenient viewing on the LCD screen or on your computer.
Advanced Shooting Options
◆ The Digital Rebel will satisfy advanced
photographers with sophisticated functions like AE Lock to prioritize the exposure based on a specific area, FE Lock
for flexible flash exposure control, and
Auto Exposure Bracketing to record 3
consecutive images with bracketed
exposures. There is also a Depth-of-Field
Preview Button so you can check the
front-to-back sharpness of an image just
before shooting.
Simultaneous RAW + JPEG
◆ Image quality can be controlled in any
exposure mode by selecting from 6 JPEG
settings with varying degrees of resolution and compression. You can also
record high-resolution RAW files with
simultaneous mid-fine JPEG capture.
The smaller JPEG file is ideal for e-mailing and computer viewing while the
RAW format preserves maximum control
over image processing parameters with
the bundled File Viewer Utility software.
◆ RAW files contain complete imaging
information for complete latitude in processing parameter settings (files are
processed in the computer, not in the
camera, providing a range of options—
sharpening, color saturation—before
images even reach the editing software),
while more compact JPGs are ideal for
quick previews or sending over the
Internet. Having both frees you from
deciding an end use before you shoot.
Comprehensive Processing Parameters
When it comes to perfectly processing and printing the
pictures it captures, the EOS Digital Rebel offers a direct
print option that automatically enhances sharpness,
saturation, and contrast for high-quality direct printing
with no additional image manipulation needed. However,
for greater creative latitude during post-processing you
can apply standard processing parameters.
You can also create and store up to 3 sets of custom
parameters with wide creative latitude. Each of the four
parameters (contrast, sharpness, color saturation and
color tone) can be adjusted to one of 5 steps.
◆ The Digital Rebel also supports both standard RGB color space or Adobe RGB color
space. Adobe RGB is a broader color spectrum with low saturation, perfect for
subsequent saturation adjustment or profile conversions.
Direct Printing
For instant direct printing just plug the Digital Rebel into one of Canon’s Card Photo or
Bubble Jet Direct Photo Printers. In addition, PictBridge compatibility allows you
to connect the camera to any PictBridgecompatible printer and access a wide
range of printing media, modes and
styles. Canon-to-Canon direct printing,
however,will produce the speediest,
most reliable quality printing,with extra
options for printing effects and a handy
display when it’s time to replace ink cartridges.
With Exif Print 2.2, images are processed
intelligently based on information the
camera has recorded with each shot, while Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP) support means
Windows XP and Mac OS X users won’t need to install any dedicated driver software to
connect the camera to a computer
Intelligent Built-in Flash
The camera’s high profile, built-in
retractable flash unit makes taking
pictures with well-balanced foreground
and background exposures a snap
thanks to Canon’s exclusive E-TTL
(Evaluative Through-The-Lens) flash
exposure metering system.
EOS Digital Rebel Includes:
• BP-511 Battery Pack
• CB-5L Battery Charger
• IFC-300PCU USB Interface Cable
This highly intelligent flash pops up
and fires automatically in Full Auto,
Portrait, Close-up and Night Portrait
• VC-100 Video Cable
• EW-100DB ll Neck Strap
Flash is also automatic in low light and backlit daytime conditions, where automatic flash output reduction ensures that illumination is never harsh or overdone. The camera automatically reduces red-eye effect as well.
The flash recharges quickly (about 3 seconds), has a guide number of 13 (at ISO
100 in meters), and has coverage angle of an 18mm focal length’s angle of view
(equivalent to 28mm in 35mm format).
(EOS Digital Rebel has the same flash capability as the EOS 10D.

Canon EF Lenses
The EOS Digital Rebel is compatible with more than 50 Canon
EF lenses— from ultra wide-angle to super telephoto, plus fisheye, macro and tilt-shift —making the transition to high quality
digital even more affordable for film based Rebel and EOS
users. The world’s largest selection of autofocus lenses, Canon
EF lenses are favorites of professional photographers, and
world-renowned for their optical quality and endless versatility.
Canon’s new compact EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom lens — created exclusively for the Digital Rebel and available only in the Digital Rebel Kit —
approximates a 28-90mm zoom lens (in 35mm format). By reducing the distance
from the rear of the lens to the imaging sensor and reducing the size of the
image circle to accommodate the camera's imaging sensor size, the lens produces high image quality with superb resolution at all focal
lengths. The new lens is also smaller and lighter than conventional lenses because of the shorter backfocus distance.
Similarly, the newly developed Canon Zoom Lens EF 55-200mm
f/4.5-5.6 II USM covers a 35mm equivalent zoom range of
approximately 90-320mm when used with the Digital Rebel.
Together, these two lenses provide 35mm-equivalent zoom
coverage from 28mm to 320mm

and a USB interface. It also offers direct connectivity to several Canon
Bubble Jet Direct printers and the CP-100 Card Photo Printer.
Weighing just 28 oz., the EOS 10D accommodates all Canon EF lenses as well as a range of accessories to offer greater
creative flexibility, and to provide current EOS system users—incorporates the classic EOS control layout— an economical
way to make the transition to digital imaging. Additional features include 11 shooting modes; 8 white balance modes plus
WB bracketing; pro-level color temperature control, 17 custom functions (61 total settings) a PC socket for studio-type
strobes; and a built-in E-TTL flash system. Images are stored on high-capacity CompactFlash cards (up to 2.5GB) as well as
IBM Microdrives. The supplied battery pack provides enough power to take over 600 pictures in the Large/Fine mode.
6.3-Megapixel CMOS Sensor
Canon’s newly developed large, single-plate CMOS (complementary metal oxide
semiconductor) sensor captures images with exceptional clarity and tonal range. Created
through a new high-precision manufacturing method, this high-sensitive sensor delivers
ultra-fine accuracy with an effective 6.3-megapixel resolution (3072 x 2048 pixels). 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. Images are
luminescent, life-like, and incredibly rich in detail. In short, the EOS 10D confidently rivals
film quality, while offering all the advantages of digital technology.
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.
DiG!C Imaging Engine
Information captured by the CMOS sensor is processed and assembled into images of
exceptional quality by Canon’s all new DIGIC Imaging Engine. 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. The processor renders signal noise (stray light or off-color
pixels) minimal to non-existent, for an extraordinary leap in technology that frees you to
enlarge, crop and retouch with exceptional results.
In addition to enhancing image quality, the DIGIC Imaging Engine’s faster processing
capability speeds overall operation and heightens the accuracy of the camera’s autofocus
and other systems. Because the camera is quick, responsive and agile, your shooting
experience is natural, intuitive and and pleasurable.

Simultaneous RAW + JPEG
◆ The EOS 10D embeds a JPEG file into
every RAW image you shoot, while
providing exclusive software that
enables the JPEG to be extracted
quickly for immediate access.
◆ RAW files contain complete imaging
information for complete latitude in
processing parameter settings (files are
processed in the computer, not in the
camera, providing a range of options—
sharpening, color saturation—before
images even reach the editing software),
while more compact JPGs are ideal for
quick previews or sending over the
Internet. Having both frees you from
deciding an end use before you shoot.
◆ While RAW files are always captured at
maximum resolution, there are 6 options
for image quality (resolution/compression) of the embedded JPEG file.
◆ RAW files can be converted into full
16-bit per channel TIFF files, opening up
incredible shadow and highlight detail
in high-contrast images.
7-Point AF System with
Selectable Focusing Points
Three Distinct AF Modes
The EOS 10D incorporates three distinct
AF modes to cover any situation:
Predictive AI Servo AF: Tracks moving
subject to predict proper focus with unbelievable precision. Makes incredible stopaction shots simple and automatic.
AI Focus AF: In this mode the camera will
automatically choose between One-shot
AF and AI Servo AF, depending on the
characteristics of the subject.
3 fps Continuous Shooting
◆ Powerful image-processing engine and
high-capacity buffer memory (32 MB),
enables shooting up to 9 frames at full
resolution while firing at 3 fps and this is
maintained regardless of recording
quality, ISO speed and subject conditions.
For your convenience, the actual number of continuous shots the camera is
achieving is displayed in real time right
in the viewfinder.
◆ And to capture that crucial image, the
camera’s 100ms shutter release lag time
(same as a film camera) ensures that the
camera is activated almost instantly.
◆ Shutter speeds are available from 1/4000
to 30 seconds (1/3- and 1/2-stop
increments) and bulb. Long exposure
noise reduction technology dramatically
reduces digital “noise” in exposures as
long as 30 seconds.
The camera’s new evaluative sensor takes the guesswork out of exposure. The sensor takes metering information form 35 zones, evaluates the data and weighs it intelligently based on several factors. The result? Complex scenes are properly exposed,
and multiple images of the same scene are consistent.
35-zone Evaluative Metering: Because
the system is linked to the AF point in
use, metering emphasis falls on the
subject. Exposure compensation is automatically activated when appropriate.
Partial Metering: This system offers
careful metering of difficult lighting situations and close-ups by measuring 9% of
the picture’s center, which is demarcated
with a circle in the viewfinder.
Center-weighted Averaging Metering: With emphasis on the center of the viewfinder, metering is carried out over the entire picture area.
Exposure Bracketing and Customizable Camera Functions
As accurate as Canon’s metering system is, there are times when some correction is
needed to better interpret your creative vision. The EOS 10D lets you fine tune exposures
up to ±2 stops in 1/2- or 1/3-stop increments. Or, use auto exposure bracketing to
automatically capture a series of normal, over- and under- exposures of the same scene.
For more control, there are 17 custom functions with 61 setting for fine tuning functions
such as mirror lock up, long exposure noise reduction, built-in flash synchro timing
control, manual shutter and aperture setting increments, AE bracketing sequence, and
release button/AE lock button function, to suit your own style of photography. Custom
Functions are easily selectable through and easy-to-use menu that displays text in your
choice of 12 languages.
11 Versatile Shooting Modes:
Pre-programmed shooting modes optimize the camera’s settings to best handle a
variety of shooting situations, including Portrait, Landscape, Close-up, Sports and Night
Portrait. There are also other shooting modes, designed to give you exceptional
latitude in creating the images you envision: Intelligent Program AE for fully automatic
shooting, Program AE to let you experiment with shutter and aperture combinations,
Shutter and Aperture AE, *Automatic Depth of Field (A-DEP) to create a “zone of
sharpness”, full manual, Auto Exposure Bracketing, AE Lock and Flash Off Mode.
* Camera sets the focus and aperture necessary to create sufficient depth of field to
cover the distance between the nearest and furthest subjects covered by the 7
focusing points.
Ultra-fine Processing Parameter Settings
Image processing parameters can also be adjusted before
you take the shot. You can set up to three sets of 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, they can be called up on the menu whenever
they are desired for particular shooting conditions.

One-Shot AF: Provides sharp, instant
focus for stationary objects. You can lock
in focus, then recompose the shot, knowing focus won’t be lost, regardless of
where the subject ends up in the frame.
35-Zone, AF Point-Linked Evaluative Sensor
and Triple Metering System
7-point AF lets you place your subject virtually anywhere in the frame, knowing that
focus will be where you want it and
absolutely accurate. The 7 focusing points
are conveniently and unobtrusively superimposed on the viewfinder, cover a wide
range for superb precision, and are manually selectable for a high degree of control.
Ideal focus is achieved whether orientation is vertical or horizontal, with moving,
still or even off-center subjects, and even
in low light/low contrast situations.
Next-Level Shooting Performance
Direct Printing
Recording Media
◆ Print beautiful photos with minimum time
and effort—directly from the EOS 10D.
Simply connect to the Canon CP-200/300
Card Photo Printer or to any Bubble Jet
Direct Photo Printer via the supplied USB
cable and you’ll be ready to print images
from the CF card in seconds. 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 camera also supports ExifPrint, a
worldwide standard that records camera
settings and shooting conditions right in
the JPEG file created with each shot.
When you’re ready to print, the camera’s
software communicates with the Exifenabled printer to adjust parameters
based on the individualized information
imbedded in each image for optimized
◆ Record images on compact, easy-to-
handle Type I or II CompactFlash (CF)
cards or IBM Microdrives.
◆ The EOS 10D matches the professional
quality of the EOS-1Ds in its ability to
handle recording media larger than 2GB.
The camera automatically formats the
CF card for either FAT16 or FAT32
according to the maximum storage
capacity, choosing FAT 32 for capacities
higher than 2GB.
LCD Playback
◆ When viewing recorded images on the
camera’s 1.8-inch (118,000 pixels) TFT
color LCD, you can enlarge them up to
10X in 15 steps for detailed analysis of
lighting, composition, camera movement, focusing accuracy, facial expression, etc. Simple controls enable horizontal and vertical scrolling, as well as
viewing of the previous or next image
from the same enlarged view. In maximum reduced view, nine images can be
displayed simultaneously, making it easy
to quickly evaluate them.
◆ In playback mode, images that were
taken with the EOS 10D turned sideways
are automatically rotated to an upright
position for more convenient viewing.
Additionally, rotation data is embedded
in the file as an EXIF tag for greater convenience when downloading or viewing
images with compatible software such
as Canon’s ZoomBrowser EX,
ImageBrowser and File Viewer Utility.
◆ LCD monitor’s backlight is powered by
white LEDs rather than a fluorescent
light source, delivering greater maximum brightness together with lower
power consumption. As a result, it can
be set to one of 5 brightness levels, conserving even more power when brighter
light isn’t necessary.
ISO Flexibility
The superior noise reduction of the DIGIC Imaging Engine has enabled Canon to expand
the EOS 10D’s choice of ISO settings, making it easier to adjust to shifting light conditions,
achieving not only the highest quality, but the best representation of the photographer’s
intent. ISO speed is set automatically between 100 and 400 in 1/3-stop increments in
Program Image Control modes, and 100 or 200 when the flash is used. In addition, the camera offers a broad range of manual settings from 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600 or 3200 by way of
an ISO speed button on the camera’s top panel that has been added for easier operation.

sRGB and Adobe RGB Color Space
The camera has many features that make it ideal for knowledgeable photographers who
want the opportunity to take their talent even further. One of these is the ability to switch
between standard sRGB color space and Adobe RGB color space. Adobe RGB color space
is a broader-than-standard color spectrum with relatively low saturation. Use it when you
plan to make fine adjustments to color saturation in your finished images.
Extensive White Balance Controls
The EOS 10D lets you take charge of white balance. Multiple white balance functions enable
you to take attractive, sharp pictures in a variety of lighting conditions – including sunset,
incandescent or fluorescent lighting – without having to use filters. It also lets you intentionally change the white balance to emphasize particular coloration or hues in the subject.
Proper use of white balance makes good images great, and the EOS 10D lets you take the
kind of control over white balance that was once limited to highly professional cameras.
• Preset White Balance settings include: Daylight, Overcast, Shade (counters strong blue
tones typical in open shade on sunny days), Tungsten, Fluorescent and Flash. There is also
Hybrid Auto for effortless shooting, and Custom which lets you shoot a white object in the
given lighting, then lock the proper white balance via a display on the LCD screen.
• Manually set color temperature from 2,800K to 10,000K in fine 100K increments
• White Balance Bracketing captures three images (normal, reddish and bluish) with one
shot. You select the steps in ±3 whole-stop increments
High Grade Body
◆ The EOS 10D’s rigid, ultra high-quality
◆ A more “muscular” pentaprism adds
presence, and combined with a spherical grip and rubber skin offers excellent
comfort and handling.
◆ The ergonomically-shaped shutter button
◆ An automatic retractable flash built into the EOS 10D’s
pentaprism, 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. 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 fires.
◆ The EOS 10D can also use EOS series flashes without modification. The E-TTL autoflash-
compatible hot shoe accepts Canon EOS-dedicated external flashes, including the 220EX,
420EX, 550EX, MR-14EX and MT-24EX. The x-sync contact works with external flash, and
the remote terminal connects to the 3-pin remote controller.
and electronical dials make even the
longest shooting sessions a pleasure.
E-TTL Auto Exposure Flash System
Dedicated Buttons
Laser Matte Screen
◆ Comes with a Laser Matte focusing
screen that makes it easy to distinguish
the part of the subject with sharpest
focus when manually focusing.
EF Lens Compatibility
E-TTL automatic flash exposure is also possible when an
EX-series Speedlite is mounted. This enables great
pictures to be taken with a flash even under
difficult lighting situation. The camera is
also equipped with a flash exposure
compensation function and a first- and
second-curtain synchronization switching
function, that comes in handy when
shooting a moving object in low light.
Canon’s most advanced flash exposure control system, E-TTL (Evaluative through-the-lens)
is a flash mode that reads through the lens, but not off the focal plane. This method provides
several extra features such as Flash Exposure Lock (a method of spot metering with flash)
and FP flash mode (the ability to use flash at high shutter speeds). Utilizing a preflash fired
after the button has been fully depressed but before the camera’s reflex mirror goes up,
E-TTL uses the camera’s evaluative metering sensor to analyze and compare ambient light
exposure values with illumination reflected from the subject by the preflash. This data is
used to calculate and store the flash output required for optimum exposure of the main
subject, while maintaining a subtle balance between foreground and background.
◆ The EOS 10D is compatible with over 50
Canon EF lens‚—each micron-engineered
to deliver unmatched resolution and
super operability.
◆ However, the effective focal lengths of
the lenses increases approximately 1.6x
when used with the 10D, while maintaining as aspect ratio for a visual perspective that is familiar to the 35mm photographer. Therefore, the coverage with a
28mm lens is approximately the same as
that of a 35mm film camera with a 45mm
lens (28mm X 1.6= 44.8mm).
◆ The EOS 10D is also compatible with
EOS system Speedlites, remote controls,
power drive boosters, grips and more,
for photographic possibilities that are
truly limitless.
FE Lock: Light reflected from the subject
by a pre-flash is measured with partial
metering for optimum flash control.
The main subject can therefore be
photographed at the correct exposure
even when a high-brightness portion
exists in the background. Framing can
also be performed without limitation.
High-speed Synchro Photography:
Attach the Speedlite 550EX and a highspeed synchro (FP flash) function is
provided. This allows the use of electronic
flash even at high shutter speeds.
Backgrounds can be blurred intentionally
using the high-speed synchro function to
select a large aperture.
FEB (Flash Exposure Bracketing):
Without changing the background
exposure level, the amount of flash
illumination (using the Speedlite 550EX
or Macro Ring Lites MR-14EX and
MT-24EX) falling on the subject can be
automatically changed as follows:
standard, underexposure compensation,
overexposure compensation. The
compensation range is from -3EV to
+3EV, in 1/3 or 1/2 step increments.
E-TTL Multiple Wireless Flash: By using
several 550EX Speedlite flashes, multiple
flash photography, which normally
requires a high level of sophistication,
can be performed in full-auto mode.

4.4-Megapixel Digital SLR
for Professional Press, Sports and
Wedding Photographers
Setting the standard against which all digital cameras are judged, the
EO1-D features the world’s fastest autofocus and shooting speeds—
without sacrificing any image quality. It offers unsurpassed strength,
durability, and weather-resistance. It provides unmatched control
of images as well as the world’s most sophisticated auto flash system for digital SLRs. The EOS-1D offers an unbelievable 8 frames
per second burst mode (up to 21 frames) and incredible top shutter
speed of 1/16,000 of a second. and X-sync at 1/500 sec. Ultra-short
viewfinder blackout time (87ms) allows photographers to clearly see
through the viewfinder, even while shooting at maximum speed. This is
ideal for professional photographers, from sports shooters and photojournalists to
nature and wildlife enthusiasts, enabling them to capture well-exposed and sharply focused images of moving subjects with
an unprecedented degree of efficiency.
The EOS-1D’s full-resolution, 4-million pixel images generate 12MB files, while an "imaging engine" processor generates
both incredible shooting speed and rich tonal range with color accuracy. In addition, advanced technologies applied at both
imaging engine and CCD filtration minimize "false colors". Other high-end features include a Color Matrix function: five
modes provide your choice of two color spaces (standard sRGB or expanded Adobe RGB 1998) and four color characteristics
for sRGB. Choice of three levels of JPEG compression, RAW image mode for best quality, or RAW + JPEG. 10 white balance
modes - including ability to set color temperature in kelvin values. White balance and ISO-speed bracketing functions.
Image-processing customization, including adjustable tone curves, white balance and other parameters. 21 Custom and 25
Personal functions, IEEE1394 interface and full compatibility with Canon's EF lenses and most EOS accessories
The EOS-1D also offers standard professional camera features including variable diopter control, 100% viewfinder coverage,
eye-piece shutter, one-touch depth of field preview, mirror lock, a PC socket for studio strobes, and a remote control socket.
Built to last, the EOS-1D has a magnesium alloy cover and chassis for durability, light weight & excellent electromagnetic
shielding. It has over 70 gaskets and seals, making it impervious to water and dust, and it has durable paint finish equal or
superior to the EOS-1V. The shutter is durability tested to 150,000 exposures, highest of any digital SLR.
4.48-Megapixel CCD Imaging Sensor
The heart of the EOS-1D's image quality is it’s CCD sensor. As
pixels on a digital imaging sensor become larger, they become
more sensitive to light. This means less digital noise, superior
highlights and shadow tonalities, and a wider range of contrast is
likely. The EOS-1D's 4.48 million pixel CCD sensor is a full 28.7 x
19.1mm in size—with square pixels a full 11.5 x 11.5 microns in
size (nearly 12 times the pixel size of high-resolution
consumer-type cameras with fixed lenses.
Imaging Engine
However, there's more to image quality than just the imaging
sensor. The data from the sensor must be processed and
assembled to create a finished RGB file. The EOS-1D does this
using an Imaging Engine, a sophisticated “chip” which produces
incredible color accuracy, wide tonal range and detail while
minimizing the effects of digital noise. The EOS-1D’s Imaging
Engine is one of the keys not only to its excellent image quality,
but also to its amazing speed and performance.

High-Precision Autofocus
AI Servo AF (for tracking moving subjects)
One-Shot AF (for stationary subjects)
◆ The predictive AI Servo AF system allows
the tracking of fast-moving objects while
maintaining precise focus. Sequential processing regulates an array of events within
the exposure process, including the arithmetic processing of AE and AF, the driving
of the lens, aperture control, and movement of the mirror and shutter curtains.
◆ The precision and focusing accuracy of
the AI Servo AF system functions within a
high level of synergy for results that are
nothing short of incredible. Using the EF
300 mm f/2.8L IS USM lens, the EOS-1D can
pursue, focus and continually shoot an
approaching subject at speeds of up to
186 mph until it’s as close as 66´ away.
Color Matrix Function—
Reduced Color Aberrations
Like Choosing Different Types of Film
Canon effectively eliminates the color aberrations inherent in digital cameras through
a combination of optical and digital counter measures for unmatched image quality.
Most digital cameras rely solely on optical low-pass filters that incidentally compromise
image resolution. But Canon adds digital processing technology to its imaging engine
that effectively reduces color abberations at the CCD’s true image resolution through
an originally developed algorithm. This algorithm lowers dependence on the low-pass
filter enabling sharper, more natural-looking images. It also clearly demonstrates that
sheer number of pixels alone does not necessarily determine image quality
The EOS-1D offers a unique Color Matrix
function that lets you select different color
characteristics as if you were choosing different types of film. There are five settings available to to cater to different shooting needs
(can be applied to both JPEG and RAW EOS1D images):
➤ Color Matrix 1 (sRGB compatible; Natural
coloring): Overall natural hues and
➤ Color Matrix 2 (sRGB compatible; Natural
skin color): Hues and saturation ideal for
portraits, with natural skin color
➤ Color Matrix 3 (sRGB compatible; Vivid
coloring): Hues and saturation similar to
high saturation slide film. Ideal when vivid
colors are desired
➤ Color Matrix 4 (Optimized for Adobe RGB
1998): Expanded Adobe RGB 1998 color
space, a broad color spectrum with low
saturation. Ideal when later fine saturation
adjustment of profile conversion is planned.
➤ Color Matrix 5 (sRGB compatible):
moderates hues and saturation. Ideal when
later fine tuning of saturation is planned.
Eliminate Long Exposure Noise
The longer a digital imaging sensor is exposed, the greater the likelihood that it will
generate digital “noise”, similar to “snow” on a TV with poor reception. Canon uses
sophisticated technology to reduce or eliminate this noise and provide photographers the freedom to use long exposures where necessary. On any exposure longer
than 1/15th of a second, the EOS-1D automatically activates its long exposure noise
reduction by generating a second, blank image (with the shutter closed) at the same
“shutter speed” used for the actual image. The noise generated in the blank image is
then compared to the original, and that noise is removed from the actual file. When
fast shooting is more important that noise reduction, a menu setting allows the
shooter to turn off the noise reduction
Custom Processing Parameters
By altering parameters in the conversion process, you can “develop” your images
however you like. Using the supplied TWAIN driver or plug-in for Macintosh, adjust
gradation and contrast with tone curve controls, and minutely customize parameters
like sharpness, JPEG image quality and white balance on your computer. Save up to
three sets of these settings for different situations and apply them any time. You can
also adjust the amount of JPEG compression in-camera.

At its simplest level, all 45 focusing points
can be used simultaneously for optimum
auto focus results. Focusing of this kind
has the power to transform a simple
snapshot into a precisely balanced image.
However, the true benefits of 45-point
focusing become more apparent when
applied to more demanding situations.
Adopting the EOS-1V’s capacity to capture moving subjects with the outstanding
tracking performance and high focusing speed of 45-point Area AF, propels digital
camera autofocusing into the new millennium. The 45 focusing points are densely
packed and can be manually or automatically selected to meet the needs of the
situation. When multiple points are selected, AF system capabilities are significantly
extended, while the system has been refined to ensure the unconditional reliability,
accuracy and high focusing speeds requisite for professional use. While photographers
have the freedom to frame images through the viewfinder as they choose, the lens is
automatically brought into focus as soon as the active focusing points cover the
subject. Like a human eye, Canon’s 45-point Area AF tracks and aims true.
Unprecedented Control of Image Quality
10 White Balance Modes plus
White Balance Bracketing
All digital SLRs provide white balance
control—but none provide this many
options. The EOS-1D features ten white
balance modes, from totally automatic
control to precise dialing-in of the color
temperature in Kelvin values, to give
photographers unprecedented control.
➤ Auto—The EOS-1D’s auto white balance
mode is unique because it reads data off
the CCD sensor, as well as incident data
through an external sensor on the front
of the body. This “hybrid” white balance
mode is ideal for shooting quickly in rapidly changing lighting conditions
(approx. 3000-7000K color temperature).
➤ Daylight—For shooting outside on
sunny days (approx. 7000K color
➤ Shade—Ideal for shooting outside in the
shade on sunny days (approx. 7000K
color temperature)
➤ Overcast—Ideal for shooting outside on
cloudy days, at dusk, or at dawn
(approx. 6000K color temperature)
➤ Tungsten—For shooting under incandescent light (3200K color temperature)
Flexible ISO Speed Settings and Bracketing Function
Unlike a film camera, a digital SLR’s imaging sensor’s ISO sensitivity can be altered freely
from shot to shot. The EOS-1D provides a normal ISO range of 200-1600 in 1/3-stop increments, and a Custom Function expands this range between 100 and 3200. But the EOS-1D
takes it even further. ISO speed bracketing allows the photographer to keep the same shutter speed and aperture settings, and have the camera alter the ISO sensitivity to vary the
exposure. Finally, Custom Functions allow the user-set ISO speed to be displayed in the
Folder Management
Images on the CompactFlash card are stored in one master “DCIM” folder. Within this folder, you can create additional folders—up to 500 on a a single CF card—and assign images
to any folder, with the ability to add new folders or change to a previous folder at any
time. All this is done within camera using the menu controls.
–Create up to 500 folders on the
CompactFlash card in the camera
–Protect or delete images on a folder-by
folder basis
–Assign images to any folder, prior to
–Rename folder using Canon driver software (connection to computer required)
Optical Viewfinder
The EOS-1D’s advanced optical technology
assures superb-quality viewfinder images to
give photographers essential framing
support. Utilizing Canon’s innovative glass
prism with a high refractive index, the
viewfinder delivers both 100% viewfinder
coverage and an exceptional 0.72x
magnification ratio.
➤ Fluorescent Light—Ideal for shooting
under typical fluorescent lighting
(approx. 4000K color temperature)
◆ Retractable dioptric correction lens mechanism allows room for an eyepiece shutter
and dioptric correction lens. (Adjustable
diopter range is -3.0 to +1.0. Dioptric Lens
E can be added to extend range.
➤ Flash—Ideal for shooting with an EOS

➤ Personal Setting—Up to three personal
white balance settings can be uploaded
from your PC to the EOS-1D for use in
different shooting situation, including
studio shots with special light sources.
◆ White balance bracketing function
shoots a set of 3 images at the same
exposure while shifting the white balance up to ±3 step in 1-step increments.
LCD Monitor
Optical Viewfinder
LCD Monitor
The EOS-1D is equipped with a high definition 2˝ LCD color monitor plays back images in
single-image (with information and histogram), 4/9 images and 21 information items.
◆ These include date and time, shutter speed, aperture value, exposure compensation,
and histogram of each picture, as well as overexposure warnings, etc. In addition, you
can display the menu function screens to enable setting of red-eye reduction and AEB
settings, and the custom function.
◆ The histogram display shows the overall brightness distribution of the subject. This
allows you to judge the characteristics of image data not from the subjective impressions alone, but on the basis of their frequency distribution. If any portion of the captured image is over-exposed, the high-brightness alarm function indicates its scope by
flickering. With the aid of the histogram, the exposure and lighting settings can be finely
adjusted to produce images exactly as desired.
Active Mirror Control
High-Speed Image Storage
With a large buffer memory, the EOS-1D can

mode. That's four million pixels per image.
Even more impressively, if capturing both
RAW and JPEG images simultaneously, you
can still fire bursts of up to 16 frames (at
full resolution) at up to 8 fps. A viewfinder
indicator is updated instantly to advise
you of remaining frames in a burst.
Interline Transfer CCD
Shutter release time lag of just 55 ms. No
digital SLR responds faster. A highly
responsive viewfinder, courtesy of Canon's
original Active Mirror Control method.
One of the key hurdles to faster shooting
speeds in an SLR was speed the mirror
could move up and down, while stopping
long enough between frames for an AF
system to get updated information.
Simultaneous Capture of RAW/JPEG Files
◆ Like the EOS-D60, the EOS-1D offers simultaneous
image capture and sequential recording of JPEG and
RAW image files. Users can concentrate on taking great
pictures and later select the format that best suits
their needs. Compact JPEG files are ideal when images
need to be used in a hurry, or sent over the web. RAW
files provide both the best image quality and added
versatility when processing images in your computer.
◆ EOS-1D driver software provides a host of tools and
controls that process RAW images files as they are
converted into JPEGs or 8- or 16-bit TIFF files.
Brightness and contrast, white balance (including a
one-step "click" control), tonal curves, sharpness, and
even Color Matrix -the color palette used- can be
adjusted by the photographer while your original "digital negative", your RAW image file, remains unaltered.
Processing a RAW image only creates a copy; it never
alters the original file.
4.15 million pixel interline-transfer CCD
makes continuous 8 fps operation
possible. It also functions as its own
shutter - interline transfer CCDs can be
"turned on" and “turned off” electronically
with incredible precision. This is how the
EOS-1D is able to shoot at shutter speeds
up to 1/16,000th of a second, and more
important, sync with flash up to 1/500th of
a second.

Shutter Performance
1/16,000-second shutter speed and
1/500-second X-sync. Imagine the
possibilities. The new large-area, four
million pixel CCD imaging sensor
electronically times shutter speeds, and
makes possible speeds as fast as
1/16,000th of a second. EX-series EOS
Speedlites can sync to an amazing 1/500th
of a second. The bladed rotary-magnet
shutter is durability-tested to 150,000
The EOS-1D like the EOS-1v incorporates
Active Mirror Control to reduce mirror
blackout - a major obstacle to ultra-highspeed continuous shooting performance.
Replacing the conventional approach of
suppressing mirror bound shock from
the rear, the Active Mirror Control
mechanically controls the mirror. It
works by incorporating a hook on the
backside of the main mirror. The hook is
used to hold the mirror in place when it
flips down, suppressing mirror “bounce,”
a problem that degrades AF performance
and viewfinder clarity during continuous
shooting with conventional SLRs.
In other words, this ground-breaking
mechanism reduces mirror shake,
confining it to a short duration and
suppressing the shake immediately after
it occurs. As a result, mirror blackout
time is reduced to approximately 87ms,
allowing photographers to see their
subjects clearly through the viewfinder,
even while shooting at maximum speed.
And the finder image stabilizes quickly,
even in continuous shooting mode, so
you always has a clear and sharp
viewfinder image.
8 Frames Per Second (fps) Shooting
8 fps - the fastest continuous shooting speed of any digital SLR camera. Until you experience
the EOS-1D’s total performance in your hands, its specs are just numbers. It’s when you
pick it up and feel its responsiveness…feel - but not hear it run through 21 consecutive
frames 60% faster than any other competitive professional digital SLR that you know you’re
in the presence of something truly special.
Sophisticated Exposure Control
The EOS-1D lets you capture the light as you see it. Canon's exclusive AIM (Advanced Integrated Multi-Point control)
system integrates Area AF and all six metering modes available with the EOS-1D. Focus on a subject within the Area
AF ellipse, and the EOS-1D will meter that area for the optimum result where it's needed most. All six metering modes
use the 21-zone evaluative metering sensor. Six metering modes, three flash metering modes capture your vision in all
manner of lighting situations.
Metering Modes
Automatic and Manual Exposure Modes
21-Zone Evaluative Metering
The EOS-1D offers a range of exposure choices with seven automatic exposure modes plus
manual exposure and bulb. This gives you the freedom to shoot uniquely creative photos.
Offers efficient coverage of the focus area
by defining the active focusing point as the
main subject and setting independent
metering areas for each of 15 major focusing
points within the Area AF ellipse. By considering a range of metered values from adjacent areas, clearly capture the subject, even
with various brightness levels in the frame.
Center-weighted Average Metering
Meters the brightness of all zones and
calculates exposure from this reading.
Metering is weighted: the farther the area
is from the center, the lower the sensitivity.
Center Spot Metering
Center spot metering mode covers only
2.4% of the central image area, allowing
precise metering of a very small portion of
the subject. Idea for achieving the correct
exposure for a subject in setting with
sharp contrasts in brightness.
Multi-Spot Metering
Express personal preferences for subtle
detail in both bright and dark areas when
shooting images with significant differences in brightness contrast. Up to eight
spot readings can be registered.
Focusing Point-Linked Spot Metering
Linked spot metering not only allows
accurate metering that is unaffected by
background brightness plus offers a high
level of freedom for choosing composition.
Partial Metering at Center
In this mode approx. 8.5% of the central
image is metered. The metering area is
exceptionally well-defined, which makes it
easy to judge the ideal exposure setting
based on the brightness balance between
the subject and the background. Ideal for
those who want to set exposure manually.
• Program AE, Manual Exposure
• Shutter-speed and Aperture Priority
• Depth of-field AE— this mode lets you
manually select two focusing points for
calculating the aperture value. This value
is used for setting the depth of field at a
level that ensures sharp focusing
between the two points. Very helpful for
portrait shots using a telephoto lens.
• Bulb—essential for shooting night views,
fireworks or for astronomical photography. It offers continual exposure for as
long as the shutter button is fully
depressed. Bulb exposure lapse time can
be displayed on the large LCD pane for
up to 23 hours, 59 minutes, 59 seconds.

◆ Incorporates 21 built-in Custom
Functions with 63 different settings.
These Custom Functions, along with
their respective settings, permit you to
customize the camera for very specific
shooting conditions and subject matter.
◆ To further system flexibility and customization, Canon’s ES-E1 software links
the EOS-1D to a PC via the USB port to
add 25 distinct Personal Functions in
addition to the 21 Custom functions.
◆ 25 Personal Functions match those used
in the EOS-1v. Includes the ability to
adjust the tracking sensitivity of the
focusing system; Trap Focus which
automatically fires the shutter once a
subject enters the plane of focus;
reduce auto bracketing sequence from
3 frames to 2; limit the number of
metering and exposure modes; and
many more. Combined with the Custom
Functions, the EOS-1D provides professional flexibility unmatched by any
other digital SLR.
◆ The software also gives you something
called Exposure Data Management This
feature permits users to capture a broad
range of data about individual images
including shutter speed, aperture, focal
length, metering pattern, etc. The EOS1D can record up to 25 different items of
data using the body alone, without the
aid of any accessories.
Tough, Durable and Water Resistant Body
A next-generation camera, the EOS-1D was designed from the ground up using the
strongest available materials for both functional attractiveness and high-level rigidity.
Built of cast magnesium-alloy, it combines strength, rigidity and effective magnetic shielding with light weight. Engineered to withstand extremes in temperature (from 32° F- 140° F)
it is also impervious to dust and moisture.
◆ 72 body seams and moving parts, like
the shutter and selector buttons and
Control Dials, are sealed with silicon
rubber, and the edges of the back cover
are thoroughly finished. The insides of
function buttons are protected from
dust and water by a silicon rubber boot.
◆ Tested to 150,000 cycles, the EOS-1D’s
electronically-controlled rotary magnet
shutter eliminates the possibility of
operational trouble. Ensures accurate
operation even after long use and under
severe shooting conditions.
Ready for the Newsroom
◆ Thirty-four items of text data are recorded by the EOS-1D every time you fire the
shutter, and all can be viewed on your
monitor (18 of these items can also be
viewed on the camera's LCD monitor).
◆ Press shooters and photojournalists will
also appreciate its compatibility with
industry-standard IPTC (International
Press Telecommunication Council) data
recording. 19 items such as the photographer's name and shooting date/time
are automatically recorded. Data can be
viewed with the EOS-1D driver software.
◆ The EOS-1D allows sound recording (up
to 30 seconds) ideal for photojournalist
to make verbal notes the field. Sound

EF Lens Compatibility
The EOS-1D is compatible with over 50
Canon EF lenses. However, because the
CCD is smaller than the 24 X 36 mm image
size of a 35mm film camera, the actual
image recorded by the EOS-1D is 1.3x the
indicated focal length of the lens.
Therefore, the coverage with a 28mm lens
is equivalent to 28mm X 1.3, or 36.4mm,
approximately the same as that of a 35mm
film camera with a 35mm lens. The EOS-1D
can also use all EOS series accessories
without modification. For example, the
E-TTL autoflash- compatible hot shoe can accept Canon EOS-dedicated external flashes,
including the 420EX and 550EX.
◆ You can record up to 30-second audio
clips and attach it to each image.
The Ultimate Camera For Professional Photographers
The incredible quality of the EOS-1Ds starts at the imaging sensor. The 11.1-megapixel
full-frame CMOS sensor delivers a maximum resolution of 4,064 x 2,704 pixels—
almost double the resolution currently considered state-of-the-art by most
professionals. The sensor also has an imaging area of 24 x 36mm, the
same dimensions used by full-frame 35mm SLRs— so every EF-series
lens will have the same effective coverage with the EOS-1Ds as it does
with EOS-System 35mm film models. And to process the unprecedented
file sizes, the EOS-1Ds’ imaging engine incorporates an advanced
“chip” that processes and assembles image data captured by the sensor
to achieve the same color accuracy and wide tonal range as regular
film-based cameras. And even with almost twice the pixel resolution of
previous pro cameras, the imaging engine still supports a 10-frame
buffer memory at framing rates up to 3 fps!
Designed primarily for studio photographers, but ideal for a wide variety
of professional and advanced amateur photographers as well, the EOS-1DS
features an exceptionally strong magnesium alloy body, 45-point autofocus,
21-point evaluative metering, simultaneous RAW + JPEG recording, 10-mode White Balance and
5-mode Color Matrix selection. It also includes an ISO range of 100-1250 (plus ISO 50 via Custom Function control), high
speed IEEE 1394 interface and auto-switching FAT16/FAT32 memory card formatting capability, a top shutter speed of
1/8000 second, X-sync speed of 1/250 second, 21 Custom Functions (with 67 settings), 26 Personal Functions, and extended
battery life.
The ultimate imaging device for pros, the EOS-1Ds is bundled with the latest software utilities, and is supported by the
world’s largest selection of AF lenses and Canon’s sophisticated E-TTL auto flash system, including E-TTL wireless autoflash.
The numbers are staggering: 11.1 million pixels. 3 fps for up to
10 consecutive frames in a burst. It’s digital like you’ve never seen before.
11.1-Megapixel CMOS Imager
◆ A full-frame CMOS sensor with an imaging
area of 24 x 36mm, the same dimensions
used by full-frame 35mm SLRs. It has 11.1
million effective pixels with a maximum
resolution of 4,064 x 2,704 pixels. This is
almost double the resolution currently
considered state-of-the-art by most professionals.
◆ The EOS 10D showed the world how
Canon-developed CMOS imaging sensors
combine superb color, dynamic range,
and low noise. Now, the EOS-1Ds almost
doubles the D10’s resolution for a quantum leap in digital image quality. With the
same Canon CMOS benefits.
1:1 Focal Length & 3fps Shooting
◆ Finally, every EF lens will work the same
on a digital SLR as it does on your 35mm
film cameras, with the same coverage. It’s
one less thing for the pro to think about
on location, and it’s one more thing to
ease the transition from film into digital.
Even for wide-angle shooters.
◆ Today’s digital pros demand speed and
responsiveness along with high quality,
so Canon has developed new 2-channel
reading to ensure that the EOS-1Ds delivers both. It doubles the reading speed
and turns the dream of combining
incredible 11.1 million pixel resolution
with 3 fps shooting speeds into a reality.

Power Consumption
◆ Battery longevity is an important
consideration, particularly when shooting
outdoors. Fortunately, CMOS sensors
consume less power than CCD sensors of
the same resolution. Moreover, the
EOS-1D’s electronic circuits ensure that
electricity flows only to active
components, in the absolute minimum
required amounts. Thanks to the EOS-1D’s
efficiency, the NPE3 battery pack lasts up
to 600 exposures (at normal temperatures)
on a single charge.

The MT-24EX Macro Twin Lite gives
serious close-up, nature, and macro
enthusiasts a different option in macro
lighting—a directional quality of light,
as opposed to the rather “flat” character of the traditional ring lite. Two
separate flash heads can be swiveled
around the lens, can be aimed separately, and even removed from their holder
and mounted off-camera. The MT-24EX
is fully E-TTL compatible with all EOS
bodies, including digital SLRs, and even
allows Wireless E-TTL flash control
with one or more 550EX and/or 420EX
“slave units”. It also provides easy ratio
control of each flash head’s output,
over a six-stop range.
• Each head can be rotated around lens in an 80° arc, swiveled
inward/outward over a 90° arc, and up/down over a 90° arc.
• Each head is removable, and has both a standard shoe-mount and
1/4-20 tripod socket at the base to facilitate mounting off-camera.
• Powerful guide number (72 ft/22m) allows smaller apertures and
greater depth-of-field when necessary.
E-TTL Wireless Autoflash Control
Up to three groups (for main, fill, and background flash) of slave units can be set up.
The slave unit’s ID is set to A, B, or C. The flash output ratio between two Speedlite
groups can be adjusted automatically from 8:1 to 1:1 or from 1:1 to 1:8. The flash output
of the third Speedlite group can be adjusted through flash exposure compensation.
The E-TTL autoflash system controls the total flash output to obtain a correct
exposure. When using the 550EX with the EOS D60 you can fire a modeling flash to
preview the flash effects before taking the picture. Even with multiple Speedlites,
the modeling flash fires according to the flash ratio you have set.
E-TTL Wireless autoflash can also be used with most other features such as FE Lock,
FP Flash, Flash Exposure Bracketing and Compensation, and Stroboscopic flash.
These accessories are handy for taking pictures of subjects that are difficult to
approach, or to minimize vibration for close-ups and time exposure.

Fully Electronic Mount System
The conventional interface between lens and camera is mechanical
is limited and doesn’t allow much information to be exchanged. EF
lenses don’t use any mechanical links. Instead, about 50 items of
information are exchanged as digital signals between the lens and
camera in real time. This enables high-speed and precision control.
Inner and Rear Focusing
An inner focusing lens has the focusing lens group(s) in front of the
diaphragm, while a rear focusing lens has the focusing lens
group(s) behind. Both systems allow the focusing lens group to be
small. This minimizes the load on the actuator which drives the
autofocus. In turn, the AF speed is faster. The whole optical system
can also be made more compact. And, since the lens doesn’t rotate
during focusing, the effects of a circular polarizer or gel filter
remain intact.
Floating System
Ordinary lenses (non-zoom) are designed to give the best results
when the correction of aberrations is most effective. This is usually
at the most commonly-used focusing distances. At other focusing
distances especially at the closest focusing distance, aberrations
tend to appear. Canon’s floating system suppresses aberrations at
close focusing distances. The system adjusts the gap between
certain lens elements in correspondence to the focusing distance,
effectively correcting the aberration. The result is high image quality with aberrations suppressed at all focusing distances.
Built-In Motor and EMD
EF lenses have a built-in AF motor, as opposed to camera bodybased AF motors, for driving energy with lower transmission loss.
The lenses also have an EMD (Electromagnetic Diaphragm) to
electronically control the aperture with unmatched precision. The
aperture can be set either with an electronic dial or with the
electronic pulse signal sent according to the exposure reading.
Full-Time Manual Focusing
Canon EF lenses have very high AF precision. Optimum focus can
be achieved quickly in almost any shooting situation. Most E
lenses are also equipped with Canon’s full-time manual focusing
mode to make picture-taking even more flexible. Lenses with this
feature allow you to switch to manual focusing even in the AF
mode—overriding the autofocus mode. You can keep looking
through the viewfinder and touch up the focus manually without
switching the focus mode switch. And since the focusing ring
doesn’t rotate during auto focusing, Canon made it wider for easier
manual focusing. Full time manual focusing comes in two types:
Electronic manual focusing where the rotation amount of the focusing ring is detected and the focusing motor is driven electronically.
Or, mechanical focusing, where the rotation of the focusing ring
adjusts the focus mechanically.
Whenever you have an image in mind, you must choose a lens which can put that image on film.And whatever that image
may be, you can be sure that Canon has the lens you need. Whether it is a 15mm fisheye or a 1200mm super telephoto, all
Canon lenses feature the finest materials (especially the L-series lenses) and technologies. They include fluorite, UD glass,
aspherical lenses, lens-based Ultrasonic Motors, inner and rear focusing, Image Stabilizers, and a fully-electronic interface.

Ultrasonic Motors (USM)
The Ultrasonic Motor (USM) in Canon EF lenses is based on unique
technology—the motor spins by ultrasonic oscillation energy. Fast
and quiet, USM has made EF lenses almost noiseless and autofocusing fast, precise and practical. The direct-drive construction is very
simple, with no gear train. This makes it very durable and efficient.
Two types of USM are used: Ring-type and micro. Ring-type is found
in large-aperture and super telephoto lenses, while micro USM can
be found in more compact lenses.
EF lenses fuse state-of-the-art electronics
with mechanical precision, and optical
excellence. The fully electronic EF lens
mount is unique among 35mm SLR cameras, operating silently with unmatched
reliability due to the complete elimination of mechanical couplings. Every EF
lens contains its own custom-designed
autofocus motor and microprocessor.
Many utilize Canon's exclusive Ultrasonic Motor (USM) technology. Canon is also a leader in the use of aspherical lens elements, flourite crystal, Ultra-low dispersion (UD) glass and other advanced optical technologies. Uniformly high optical performance results from the extensive use of exclusive Canon-developed manufacturing techniques in Canon’s own factories, the
world's largest for 35mm cameras and lenses.

Standard Lenses
With a natural angle of view and perspective, standard lenses capture the subject plainly, with no special effects. The result is different from a wide-angle of telephoto lens which is used for more expressive
purposes. At the same time however, you can use standard lenses in creative ways by varying the subject distance, aperture, and angle. Canon offers three standard EF lenses each with a different maximum aperture.
Portrait and Medium Telephoto Lenses
A medium telephoto lens with a large aperture brings the subject closer, creates excellent background
blur, gives a longer flash range, and affords a faster shutter speed to freeze the action. Best of all, they
aren’t too heavy to carry around—even on a ski slope.
Telephoto Lenses
A telephoto lens is essential to any serious photographer. For sports action, you will need a fast shutter
speed and a long focal length. A large maximum aperture allows a faster shutter speed. If you want a
smaller more compact lens, choose a lens with a smaller maximum aperture.

equivalent to one fluorite). The 400/5.6L has a Super UD-glass
element which gives almost the same effect as one fluorite
• All (except 400/5.6L) have a built-in Image Stabilizer because
no matter how great the lens is, camera shake can spoil the
shot. Optical shake is detected by gyro sensors which provide the data necessary to shift the image-stabilizing lens
group in parallel to neutralize the shake. This increases
usable shutter speed range by up to two full stops for handheld shooting. There are two IS modes: one for normal
image stabilization, one for panned shots.
• All except the 300/4L and 400/5.6L have an ‘AF Stop’ feature. If
something passes between the camera and subject, the AF-Stop
button momentarily locks the AF to prevent the focus from
shifting to the obstruction passing by. After it is gone, the
focus is maintained so you can quickly resume shooting.

6.1-Megapixel (12.1 MP Interpolated)
Digital SLR Camera
The successor to the acclaimed FinePix S1 Pro, the FinePix S2 Pro, builds on
its predecessor's legacy for outstanding picture color and detail while empowering professional photographers with greater control over the editing, storing
and transferring of images, both in the studio and on the road.
The FinePix S2 Pro’s 6.17 million effective pixels is capable of producing an
image file with 12.1 million (4,256 x 2,848) recorded pixels for pictures with
stunning color and detail. Additionally, CCD RAW mode, allows professionals
to experiment with their photographs as they see fit.
The FinePix S2 Pro offers a dual media storage options: Smartmedia and IBM
Microdrive as well as IEEE1394 and USB interface to speed the transfer of large files to a Mac or PC—resulting in increased
workflow. A Nikon SLR-type design, the S2 Pro has a Nikon-F mount and accepts every AF Nikkor and most manual AI, AI-S
Nikkor lenses. It has a high-speed shutter (30 to 1/4000 second), continuous shooting (2 fps up to seven frames), and sensi-
tivity up to ISO-equivalent 800 and 1600. For further flexibility, controls include four shooting modes (single frame, continuous, preview and multiple exposure), four exposure modes and nine white balance modes.
3rd-Generation Super CCD—The Heart of the FinePix S2 Pro
Since gaps are wider on the
perpendicular axes, a conventional
CCD suffers from
horizontal/vertical resolution
that is lower than the
resolution on the diagonals.
The Super CCD has narrower
intervals on the perpendicular axes,
so vertical/horizontal resolution is
higher than diagonal resolution.
The FinePix S2 Pro owes its exceptional imaging performance to the newly-developed 3rdGeneration Super CCD sensor. With 6.17-million pixels delivering an unprecedented 4256 x 2848
(12.1-million) recording pixels, the FinePix S2 Pro offers twice the image size of its predecessor
(FinePix S1 Pro) and far more recording pixels than any other SLR digital camera available today.
This two-fold improvement in resolution is only part of the story though. The Super CCD’s new
sensor technology, together with a state-of-the-art image-processing algorithm LSI, reduces noise
in both the luminance an chroma information in captured images. Apart from notably cleaner
images, this makes possible an expanded range of ISO sensitivities for maximum shooting versatility. The same technology, in combination with the RAW format, also extends tonal range and
improves color balance. Skin tones particularly benefit, and surface textures take on a tactile,
three-dimensional reality. In short, image quality rivals that of film-based photography.
Higher Sensitivity, S/N Ratio, Dynamic Range
With octagonal photodiodes in a honeycomb
pattern, the Super CCD minimizes space that
doesn’t contribute to image capture, so
light-collecting efficiency is much higher. This
improves sensitivity, increases the S/N ratio
and broadens the dynamic range.
Higher horizontal/vertical resolution
Based on extensive research into human
vision, the Super CCD layout positions the
pixels at a 45° angle in a honeycomb pattern.
This raises horizontal/vertical resolution up to
60% higher than conventional CCDs.
Horizontal Skipped Readout
No longer limited to the vertical axis,
skipped readout is possible in both directions— a key to high-quality, full-motion
video output.
Single Electronic Shutter
Since it needs only an electronic shutter, the
Super CCD holds the potential for continuous shooting that’s extremely fast and precise. The key lies in one-step reading of all
the pixels and a path structure wide enough
for high-speed transmission of the electronic
charge produced by the photodiodes.
Intelligent Metering
6.17-Megapixel CCD
◆ 6.17-megapixel, 23.0 x 15.5mm super-sized
◆ 3rd-generation Super CCD allows the S2
Pro to deliver professional image quality
with high resolution, linear tonality from
highlights to shadows, well-balanced
color reproduction, low noise in low-light,
and without blur caused by camera
◆ Records images at four resolutions (4256
High-Speed 5-Area Autofocus
◆ The FinePix S2 Pro incorporates five area
AF sensors covering a wide area along
both the horizontal and the vertical axis’.
This generous autofocus coverage is ideal
for fast, creative composition.
Alternatively you can designate any of
the five sensors as primary sensor,
allowing highly effective action and
sequence photography.
Center-weighted Metering—the traditional metering mode, it concentrates
the sensing area on the center of the
viewfinder. Useful for shooting portraits
and other center-dominant subjects.
Spot Metering—gives you true pinpoint
precision, ideal whenever you need
exact exposure for a particular part of
the scene.
Control over Shooting Settings
On the back of the FinePix S2 Pro, you will find an LCD monitor for
checking the images you shot and a backlit LCD display for confirming
and changing camera settings.

modes), TIFF and RAW file formats. The
12-bit “lossless’ RAW image file format
stores images exactly as they come from
CCD before processing by camera’s internal algorithms.
Matrix Metering/3D Matrix Metering— In addition to reading scene brightness, the system
analyzes the overall “atmosphere” of the frame
by comparing the exposure information to its
scene-condition database, including brightness,
contrast, subject-to-camera distance and the
selected focus area. The 10-segment 3D Matrix
Metering is activated when using D or G-type
Nikkor lenses. The result is automatic exposure
control that is amazingly accurate.
Backlit Dot Matrix LCD
A backlit dot matrix LCD helps you
check and change camera settings
quickly. Using the function button
you can set shutter speed,

11-Megapixel One-Shot Digital Camera Back
Designed for full and easy integration with the Fujifilm GX680III and other medium format
cameras, the LUMA II Digital Camera Back provides professional photographers with the
perfect bridge between traditional photographic and digital imaging capabilities.
Extremely user-friendly, the compact-sized, easy-to-handle LUMA II is replete with all the
features of a professional-grade digital camera when integrated with Fuji’s GX680III
professional medium-format SLR. Offering a full-format (3.6cm x 2.4cm) 11-megapixel
CCD array with 4008 x 2672 pixel resolution and 12 f-stops of dynamic range using 14-bit
color, the LUMA II with One-Shot Instant Color Capture produces exceptionally clear,
superior-quality images—up to 61MB file sizes— at the rate of one image every 2.5
seconds. Fully compatible with standard studio lighting including electronic strobe, tungsten,
HMI and daylight, the back also features an ISO of 25 programmable up to ISO 200.
◆ The LUMA Digital Camera Back is
driven by a standard Firewire cable (no
additional software or computer cards
required) and is “hot pluggable” for
connectivity to any Firewire-capable
desktop or portable Macintosh over
virtually limitless distances.
The Fuji GX680III is particularly suited for use with the LUMA II Digital Camera Back
for everything from studio and commercial work to in-house photography. The
GX680III features a high precision motor drive and permits full bellows movements
including tilt, swing, rise and fall - important adjustments that can compensate for
unnatural perspective, increase apparent depth of an object, help avoid reflections
without having to reframe, and create a stronger impact in product photography by
emphasizing perspective. In addition, the GX680III series is compatible with 17 separate lenses, which makes it extremely flexible both for conventional and digital use.

14-Megapixel Full-Frame SLR for Portrait, Wedding, Event and
Commercial Photographers
Kodak's sixth-generation professional digital camera, the easy-to-use DCS Pro
14n digital SLR is designed and priced for professional portrait, wedding,
event and commercial photographers, as well as advanced amateurs.
Built on a Nikon lens mount, the camera is equipped with a 4536 x 3024
(13.7MP) effective pixel, 12-bit CMOS imager, covering the full 24x
36mm image area of 35mm film, allowing you to regain the benefits of
true wide-angle lenses and use of Nikon 35mm SLR lenses. Plus, you
have the freedom to select the image size (full 14MP, 6MP, and 3MP)
that suits the shooting environment.
Powered by a single rechargeable Li-Ion battery pack, the camera can
capture 2fps up to eight frames in full-resolution mode. Images can be
saved as DCR raw files or Kodak Extended Range Imaging (ERI) JPEG
files. Images are stored on CompactFlash and/or SD/MMC memory cards.
The camera can write to both, and the image can be sent to each card simultaneously in any of the available formats. The
camera has two user modes: basic and advanced. The camera defaults to the basic setting and offers a very intuitive, simple interface. In the advanced mode, you can adjust many more capture, resolution and storage settings, among others. In
addition, Kodak leverages Nikon's D-TTL (digital through the lens) flash metering in the DCS Pro 14n to offer near perfect
flash exposures.
The DCS Pro 14n uses cast magnesium encasements for a solid, rugged camera body. The robust body includes a vertical
trigger that works in conjunction with an auto orientation sensor. The sensor detects the camera's orientation ±90° from the
horizontal position. This enables automatic rotation of the image as it moves to a computer for manipulation, saving time
and improving workflow.
Finally, it includes the latest versions of Kodak Professional DCS Photo Desk and Camera Manager software, and is compatible with Kodak ProShots Studio Software Suite, an online image management and display tool that links the photographer
to both client and lab in an effective digital workflow for film-based and digital camera images.
14-Megapixel Full-Frame 35mm-size CMOS Sensor
◆ The highest resolution image sensor in a 35mm SLR camera, the
DCS Pro 14n’s massive CMOS image sensor is packed with 13.85million (4560 x 3048) total pixels to deliver incredibly detailed
images up to 41 MB (uncompressed TIFF). And since resolution is
so high there is no need for an anti-aliasing filter.
◆ Unlike CCD image sensors which are charge-coupled devices that
require very sophisticated and power-hungry electronics to operate, and due to the amount of support electronics they require,
take up more space and power inside the camera—CMOS image
sensors incorporate light-sensing technology that allows for
charge conversion right inside the pixel, thereby dramatically
reducing support electronics and power consumption. The small
size of the DCS Pro 14n, even though it incorporates a 24 x 36mm
sensor, was achieved through the use of CMOS sensor technology.
◆ The 24mm x 36mm full-frame CMOS image sensor is also equal
in size to 35mm film. This gives the DCS Pro 14n a 1:1 focal
length magnification—so there is no focal length magnification
effect like you get with other digital SLR camera. You get the
same true wide-angle and telephoto image as you would with
film. Other advantages of this include a larger viewfinder area,
metering system with less error and increased focusing precision.
◆ The DCS Pro 14n lets you save an image at 14, 6, or 3 megapixels.
This allows you to control file size based on the requirements
of a given shot or situation. It also speeds workflow by allowing
for capture at lower resolution. Use 3- or 6-megapixels when
you want to balance speed in your workflow; use 14-megapixels
when you want to blow wide open the doors of artistic
F-Mount Compatible
Fast and Accurate Autofocus
Equipped with the venerable Nikon F-mount, the DCS Pro
14n is compatible with a full selection of AF Nikkor optics
so there is no need to convert to new lenses. There's also
no need to recalculate focal lengths, either, thanks to the
full-frame, 35mm-size CMOS sensor. This includes Nikon’s
AF-S Nikkors whose built-in Silent Wave Motors (SWM) offer
near silent ultrafast auto-focus operation and innovative
lenses such as Nikon’s VR Zoom-Nikkor 80-400mm f/4-5.6D.
◆ Single Area AF gives you five focusing
positions to work with in the frame.
Great when shooting carefully composed landscapes or portraits.
◆ Dynamic AF ensures accurate focusing,
even if your subject moves from its original position after you’ve selected a
focus area. You’ll never have trouble
shooting moving subjects like animals,
athletes, or children at play.
focus continuously on a moving subject.
Using a unique overlap servo method,
the AF system focuses and drives the
lens simultaneously, offering fast and
accurate AF operation. Furthermore,
with Lock-On AF, you can continue to
track your main subject even if something momentarily blocks it.
◆ Large 2-inch (120,000 pixel) LCD provides
improved contrast, increased viewing
angle, a histogram and innovative features
such 1:1 focus check and a spot densitometer
(moveable Luminometer crosshairs).
◆ Using a four-position navigation switch you
can scroll slowly around the image in a
near-stepless fashion while the Luminometer
calculates the brightness of the area under
the crosshairs. The level is indicated in
stops (-3 to 3.25) and RGB values. This is
a critical for those who require precise
control over all aspects of exposure and
◆ Focus Tracking system enables you to
LCD and TTL Optical Viewfinder
◆ The DCS Pro 14n also has a TTL (through the lens) optical viewfinder with diopter
adjustment from -0.8 to +1.8. The viewfinder's image display shows the basic exposure
settings, such as aperture and shutter speed, and any exposure compensation dialed in
as well as various other camera settings, from metering mode to exposure mode.
Exposure Metering Modes
◆ Offers three exposure metering modes:
Nikon’s highly regarded 10-segment 3D
Matrix Metering mode for intelligent
image analysis, Center Weighted
Metering and Spot Metering.
◆ Offers Program AE, Flexible Program,
Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, and
Manual exposure modes with shutter
speeds from 1/4000 to 30 seconds.
◆ Exposure compensation of ±3 EV is
available in 1/2 EV increments and Auto
Exposure Bracketing (three consecutive
shots with varying exposures) let you
see the effects of varying brightness.
◆ ISO is selectable from 80 to 640 in 1/3-
stop increments at 14-megapixel resolution and 80-800 at 3- and 6-megapixel
◆ Seven white balance modes including
incandescent, florescent, direct sunlight,
flash cloudy and shade with ±3 fine tuning settings and a manual mode.
In photography, a moment’s hesitation
could cost you the shot. That’s why the
DCS Pro 14n incorporates Nikon’s FiveArea Dynamic Autofocus system — highly
regarded for its responsive performance.
Choose from high-speed, accurate Single
Servo (S) AF and Continuous Servo (C)
modes, as well as full manual focus mode.
Built-in and External Flash Operation
◆ The DCS Pro 14n has a built-in flash with a Guide
Number at ISO 100 of 12m (39´). The flash angle is
wide enough to cover the field of view of a 28mm
lens. With a CPU lens, the built-in Speedlight
supports D-TTL flash control for flash photographs
with a natural balance. You can use the built-in
flash not only when natural lighting is inadequate,
but to fill in shadows and backlit subjects or to add
a catch light to your subject’s eyes.
◆ Three D-TTL Auto Flash modes are available:
– 3D Multi-Sensor Balanced Fill-Flash for Digital SLR
– Multi-Sensor Balanced Fill-Flash for Digital SLR,
– Standard TTL Flash for Digital SLR.
◆ Five flash sync modes are available: Front-Curtain Sync, Slow Sync, Rear-Curtain Sync,
Red-Eye Reduction, and Red-Eye Reduction with Slow Sync.
◆ If more lighting is needed, you can attach an optional Nikon Speedlight (for example the
SB-50DX or SB-800AF) to the hot Shoe (flash sync speed is 1/125 second or slower when
using an optional Speedlight, and available ISO is 80 - 800)
◆ You can also attach a cable from optional Speedlights directly into the PC sync terminal

The Kodak Advantage—‘Picture Protection’
Professional Conveniences
◆ Connect the camera directly to NMEA
standard Global Positioning Satellite
devices. These GPS units can be
attached to your file headers to capture
coordinates with each image. There are
two options for doing this:
– You can put a Trimble GPS card into one
of the slots in the camera.
– You can plug an external GPS unit into
the serial port of the camera.
◆ With the second option, once the GPS
device is attached, you just take your
pictures. The GPS coordinates are automatically collected and stored in the file
header, just like the ISO setting, shutter
speed, date, and time. When they're
processed through the acquire module,
the GPS coordinates are automatically
written to the top 16 pixels of the file.
◆ The body includes a vertical trigger that
works in conjunction with the camera’s
auto orientation sensor.
No photographer is perfect. At one time or another we’ve all incorrectly exposed a picture,
accidentally deleted an image, or ended up with the wrong color balance. Equipped with
Kodak’s Picture Protection the DCS Pro 14n offers you several functions that let you
“rescue” images that might otherwise be lost. And you do it without losing data as you
would during adjustments made in Photoshop on an acquired image.
The DCS Pro 14n does this by creating and managing Kodak's innovative Extended Range
Imaging (ERI) JPEG files. ERI-JPEGs are created by and stored in-camera on removable
media for later color correction or manipulation, and provide two-stops of exposure
latitude and extended color space within a JPEG workflow, a benefit no other camera
offers. The ERI-JPEG format provides professional photographers ease-of-use of JPEG files
with the image quality and color/exposure control of Kodak’s highly regarded DCR format
raw camera files, to create the best quality images.
Exposure Compensation: If you’re using another camera, you’re image is final, whether it
is under-or overexposed. You could open it in Photoshop and make some adjustments, but
you'd never really fix it. That's not the case here. What determines your scenes exposure?
Four factors: light,shutter, aperture, and sensitivity. The first three are fixed in time: you
can’t change them. To adjust the exposure, your only hope is to change the sensitivity. The
DCS Pro 14n can capture the raw data of your image, and create a digital negative allowing
you to go back and correct the exposure of the shot after it’s taken.
Color Correction: Quickly moving from one lighting condition to another? Accidentally
have your camera set for the wrong color temperature? Normally all you can get is a
picture with severe color-cast, requiring a lot of retouching time to recover the correct
colors. But now you can change the color settings after you have taken your shot, putting
you into control of image conditions. Choose from calibrated daylight, tungsten,
fluorescent, or flash color settings - each with the ability to set a custom white point—to
correct the color before acquisition. Or for critical control of color, the cameras are ICC
profile compliant—you can convert from the camera’s raw data to a known, calibrating
color space of your choosing.
Digital Negatives: Some cameras process process the data and turn it into finished files
immediately. That may be fine for some shots, but it doesn't offer the flexibility that most
professional photographers need.The DCS Pro 14n save the raw data from the sensor as a
“digital negative”, giving you access to that raw information. Since you have the raw data,
you can process this archive as many times as you need to. You can change exposure
settings, color balance, and more—all without changing the raw data. It’s like shooting
multiple rolls of film.
◆ The sensor detects the camera’s orienta-
tion ±90° from the horizontal position.
This enables automatic rotation of the
image as it moves to a computer for
manipulation, saving you time and
improving workflow.
◆ Selectable NTSC/PAL video output for
review. In NTSC mode, the color LCD
and the video output are enabled simultaneously, a feature particularly useful
for portrait photographers preparing
set-ups. Using a TV/monitor, photographers can “play back” images captured
during a shoot as a preview and potential sales opportunity with customers.
Optional DCS Custom Looks Software
The DCS Custom Looks software profiles mimic the looks of films and filters to meet
your artistic needs and to simplify your workflow. In minutes, you can have
repeatable, predictable color that could take you hours to create in other software
programs - if you could do it at all. In the “Color Hold” profiles, skin colors are “held”
in place while other colors are affected. This effect could take hours to produce; in
Custom Looks, it's as easy as a click away.
Starting with a Kodak DCR file as your master image, you can create the same effects
as several films - black and white, high-contrast color, low-contrast color, plus the
effects of filters. Using these new profiles, you can offer your clients more color tonal
options, particularly when they are trying to match merchandise or flesh tones. By
setting an option during the capture stage, you don't have to apply different color
effects later in your workflow to meet their expectations. With the selection of
profiles, you can sell the same image multiple times.

provides improved blue response,
anti-blooming, and color uniformity
◆ A removable anti-aliasing filter, digital
anti-aliasing solutions and a nonreflecting IR cut-off filter help ensure the
highest image quality.
◆ The physical size of the CCD is smaller
than a frame of 120 film and so a resulting
lens multiplication factor of about 1.5x
will occur (shooting with a 90mm medium format lens with the Kodak DCS Pro
Back Plus would capture the same area
as using a 135mm lens with a 120 film
◆ The DCS Pro Back captures images at the
equivalent of ISO 100. It can capture an
one image every two seconds, and up to
four images are buffered before they are
downloaded to a CF card. With two 1GB
IBM Microdrives, you will be able to
store 100 high-resolution images.
◆ When you’re tethered with an IEEE1394

capability for high-angle or other out-ofreach camera placements.
◆ Full-featured LCD gives photographers
critical real-time control over the images
they take. The LCD screen has a full 90°
of movement for waist-level operation
and can be controlled one-handed. In
addition to acting as a viewfinder, the
LCD provides instant review, a histogram
for precise exposure control, focus
check, and a built-in spot meter. These
features free you from your PC for image
review —you’ll know instantly that
you’ve got the shot.
◆ With the LCD ’s 1:1 focus check, you’ll
know for sure in three easy presses of a
button. Pro Back Plus also allows you to
pan around your subject and make spot
readings of the scene. The readout is in
stops, relative to an 18-percent gray card,
and in a luminance percentage, where
the black-to-white range is mapped 0 to
100 percent. Kodak
pioneered the histogram feature so you
can adjust your exposure on the spot.
◆ Pro Back Plus’ long-exposure capability
is useful for location shooting or if your
studio shot needs longer exposure.This
may eliminate work-arounds with hot
HMI lights. You can also delay a shot or
capture a sequence of images
automatically at specified intervals with
the Pro Back Plus intervalometer.
◆ If something goes wrong with your image
or exposure, don’t worry. Kodak’s Picture
Protection offers a safety net of functions
that allow you to recover or correct your
