Canon Today announced the New EOS1000D

Canon has today announced the latest product to join its award-winning EOS product line-up, the Canon EOS 1000D.

Lightweight, affordable and intuitive to use, the 10.1 Megapixel EOS 1000D offers the simplest way yet for aspiring photographers to enter the world of digital SLR photography.

The Canon EOS 1000D is the perfect D-SLR camera for creative photography. It lets you carry on shooting wherever you are, from dark interiors to evenings spent outdoors. Capturing the vibrancy on a street, or once-in-a-lifetime holiday shots, is made easy by the camera’s ability to shoot at up to 3 frames per second. Plus, for shots of kids or friends at a party, the wide area auto focus system has 7 separate points to capture their most active moments.

The EOS 1000D’s bright 2.5” LCD screen rewards instantly with a detailed review of every shot, which can be shared with friends thanks to a wide viewing angle. With Live View mode, the screen can even be used to compose shots, or to easily auto focus in the style of a digital compact camera. And for total shooting flexibility, the EOS 1000D is compatible with Canon’s range of lenses and EX-series Speedlite flashes – the broadest in the world.

* 10.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor
* 7-point wide-area AF system
