Canon EOS 500D/EOS Kiss X3 DSLR with Full High Definition video capability
The new Canon EOS 500D (EOS Kiss X3) offers photographers an outstanding combination of features. The new EOS 500D (EOS Kiss X3) features a 15.1 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor – ideal for large detailed prints or enormous cropping possibilities. For shooting in near-dark conditions, the Canon EOS 500D (EOS Kiss X3) offers a high ISO sensitivity up to 3200 which is expandable to 12800, giving photographers the power to shoot in the dimmest light conditions. Outstanding noise reduction is made possible by Canon’s DIGIC 4 processor. Image quality is protected by the EOS Integrated Cleaning System, which reduces, repels and removes unwanted dust from the sensor. Stubborn particles can be easily removed in post-production by using Dust Delete Data – which can be added to the image in-camera – and Canon’s included Digital Photo Professional software.
The EOS 500D (EOS Kiss X3) heralds a new way for photography enthusiasts to capture their world. It pairs outstanding still image capture with Full HD 1080P video recording. For longer video shoots, users can also choose lower shooting resolutions of 720P or VGA. Despite its compact, lightweight body, the Canon EOS 500D (EOS Kiss X3) includes all the hallmarks of the EOS system. Every detail of the EOS 500D – from the large, bright viewfinder to the famously intuitive EOS menu system – is designed to provide users with a world-class shooting experience.
The new camera is compatible with the full range of Canon’s EF and EF-S lenses and EX-series Speedlites – including the exceptionally compact, powerful new Speedlite 270EX, which features a bounce and zoom head. The Canon EOS 500D (EOS Kiss X3) is powered by Lithium-Ion LP-E5 rechargeable battery and is compatible with SD / SDHC card. The compact Canon EOS 500D (EOS Kiss X3) measures 129 x 98 x 62 mm and weigh 480 g (no battery).
