The EOS 10D digital SLR camera inherits and expands on the advanced features of the EOS D60, offering enhanced digital-performance and improved shooting features to meet the needs of high-end amateur users.

The model's imaging element comprises a Canon-developed 6.3-megapixel large-area (22.7 x 15.1mm effective size in a 3:2 aspect ratio) high-resolution CMOS sensor, an RGB primary color filter, and Canon's newly developed DIGIC Imaging Engine, which makes possible enhanced image-processing speed and precision. These advanced features combine to realize increased image quality and definition, and more natural color reproduction compared with the EOS D60. Advanced shooting features include a high-speed 7-point wide area autofocus (AF) with focusing points superimposed in the viewfinder, making accurate framing simple. Featuring Canon's proprietary AF sensor, the EOS 10D utilizes a high-speed microprocessor, an orientation sensor, and an improved AF algorithm to boost speed and subject-tracking performance, ensuring that even off-center and fast moving subjects are captured sharply.

The new camera offers enhanced continuous-shooting performance, capturing approximately three frames per second for a burst of up to nine shots, regardless of the recording format, ISO setting or subject conditions. Canon has achieved new advances in its CMOS sensor technology to make possible longer exposures with less degradation in image quality for an extended range of ISO-equivalent speed settings from ISO 100 to ISO 1600. Moreover, the new camera offers an "ISO Expansion" menu setting that permits users to select a maximum speed of ISO 3200.

Helpful hints

Sensor dust Turn the camera off when changing lenses. If the sensor is charged, it will pick up more dust. Also, clean the back of your lenses before mounting. To clean your sensor, use the "sensor cleaning" option in the menu to lock up the mirror with an un-charged sensor. Then use a blower bulb to gently clean. NEVER use dust-off.
White balance The 10D auto white balance is not as good as the 1D or 1DS because there is no external WB sensor. For the most accurate balance, use custom WB by shooting a white card, selecting that image in the "custom WB" menu option, and then setting your white balance to "custom." Your white card setting will ONLY be used when you shoot on the "custom" setting.
