In 1990, Canon’s first EOS Rebel revolutionized photography by making SLR excitement available to everyone. In the decade that followed, the Rebel grew and evolved to give its legions of fans even more photographic freedom. Now the Rebel achieves its ultimate evolution. Equipped with Canon’s exclusive ‘Digital Trinity’ – 6.3 Megapixel CMOS Sensor, Digic Imaging Processor and compatibility with over 50 of Canonâ€™s superb EF lenses â€“ 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 of EOS accessories. Share and reproduce your images with state-of-the-art digital freedom. The worldâ€™s first affordable, premium-quality digital SLR makes it all possible.
The 7-point Wide-Area AF System makes focus quick and accurate, even when your subject is off center. 7 focusing points are laid out in a cross pattern thatâ€™s visible on the clear, uncluttered Viewfinder. You can let the camera detect your subject and choose the proper focusing point; the chosen point will be illuminated for no-surprise focus. The Digital Rebel supports your own creative vision as well by letting you choose your own focusing point. Dioptric Adjustment lets you shoot comfortably with or without your glasses.
The camera’s large-format, high resolution 6.3 Megapixel CMOS Sensor delivers images that will astonish you with their depth and detail. Every image is remarkably detailed throughout the full dynamic range, from highlights to shadows. The large sensor has a 3:2 aspect ratio to give you the familiar compositional feel and classic image proportions of a 35mm camera.
Canon’s more than 60 years of photographic experience went into the CMOS Sensor’s invention and refinements, and the way it works in perfect tandem with the Digic Imaging Processor. Together, they virtually eliminate stray light and off colors. Even long exposure images, like city lights against a night sky, are clear and virtually noise-free.
The sensor supports an extensive range of ISO speeds. This allows you to quickly compensate for shifting light conditions, as if you had films of various speeds actually built into the camera. In short, the CMOS Sensor allows the Digital Rebel to achieve images with the quality of film, while offering all the advantages of digital technology.
In RAW mode, every shot is captured as both a RAW and Middle/Fine JPEG file. RAW files render the most detailed printed images, while less-detailed JPEGs are smaller, making them perfect for sending and viewing on computer screens. Having both kinds of files recorded automatically means that whatever you decide to do with your final images, youâ€™re covered.
Highly responsive autofocus makes for shooting excitement. The camera automatically employs one of 3 AF systems to deliver fast, spot-on focus in any situation. One-Shot AF is the best choice for still subjects, locking in focus as you press the shutter button halfway. AI Servo AF tracks active subjects, predicting their movement. AI Focus AF switches between One-Shot AF and AI Servo AF when subjects start and stop, perfect for children, pets, and other unpredictable subjects. High-speed 2.5 frames-per-second motor-drive powers the Continuous Shooting mode, letting you capture split-second action sequences with a burst of up to 4 shots.
