EOS 500D brings movie mode to consumer camera

Following the launch of the first EOS camera to shoot movies – the EOS 5D Mark II in September 2008 – Canon now brings Full High Definition (HD) video capability to consumers in a compact and lightweight DSLR.

The new EOS 500D 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 EOS 500D offers a high ISO sensitivity up to 3200 that is expandable to 12800, giving photographers the power to shoot in the dimmest light conditions. Effective noise reduction is made possible by Canon’s DIGIC 4 processor.

The EOS 500D offers a new way for photography enthusiasts to capture their world. It pairs still image capture with Full HD 1080P video recording. Users can also choose lower shooting resolutions of 720P or VGA. A built-in HDMI connection allows easy and instant review of images and movie clips on any compatible HDTV. More >>
