Newly developed by Canon EOS 400D
, this large CMOS sensor is at the top of its class with 10.1 million effective pixels. A wide ISO speed range and low noise are realized through innovations like redesigned microlenses and enhanced output amp performance. On-chip noise reduction automatically engages when noise is detected (“Auto”), and can be engaged for exposures of 1 sec. or longer (“On”). Also designed for the EOS 400D DIGITAL are new automatic cleaning functions that reduce dust throughout the sensor unit to assure image clarity.
A remarkable new function is the Self Cleaning Sensor Unit that actually vibrates the low-pass filter to remove dust particles from it. Additionally, by targeting image data for leftover dust after cleaning, the Dust Delete Function within the bundled software can be used after shooting to remove dust spots that may remain on the captured image. For photos that are consistently distinct and clear, this dust reduction system is essential.
The EOS 400D DIGITAL starts up and gets ready to shoot in just 0.2 seconds to capture photo opportunities when they arise. Accelerated image processing of DIGIC II and high-speed data reading from the CMOS sensor enable fast continuous shooting at 3 fps for a maximum of 27 shots, even in JPEG Large/Fine (10 shots in RAW). With such responsiveness and speed, the EOS 400D DIGITAL is ready when you are, to seize the moment to take the perfect shot.
