  1. Canon EOS Rebel T2i EF-S DSLR

 

Rebel T2iAlthough it is almost 3 years old, having been introduced during February 2010, the Canon EOS Rebel T2i is still an outstanding value, and not just for entry-level DSLR photographers. Canon has given it some of the same features and similar capabilities of the intermediate EOS 7D DSLR, which makes the Rebel T2i a good secondary camera for serious amateurs and professionals. Both cameras have the same iFCL-metering sensor with a 63-zone dual layer. Each layer evaluates a different set of colored light to increase meter preciseness and to reduce overexposures. At the time of the release of the Canon EOS Rebel T2i, video on a DSLR was not taken as seriously as it is today. With 1080p Full-HD at 30, 25 and 20 frames per second, this Canon digital camera gives the entry-level DSLR photographer the opportunity to learn and excel as a videographer without the larger price tag of newer DSLRs with these video features.

  1. Canon EOS Rebel T3 EF-S DSLR

 

Rebel T3The Canon EOS Rebel T3 is the perfect camera on which to learn DSLR basics at a very affordable price. Canon kept the exterior dials and buttons to a minimum, so their positions and uses will be very familiar to the compact camera shooter. Photographers can still rely on full auto mode during their first experiences with the Rebel T3, and then progress to “creative” auto and the use of program, aperture priority, shutter priority and manual modes as they develop a style and creative vision. New DSLR photographers will also feel more secure with the 2.7-inch, 230,000-dot viewfinder, since it provides a large, clear and crisp view of every scene and subject. Canon also made sure Rebel T3 owners could concentrate on taking hundreds of pictures instead of having to change batteries often. Its rechargeable lithium-ion battery is rated for 700 photos at full charge.

  1. Canon EOS Rebel T4i EF-S DSLR

 

Rebel T4iIntroduced during June 2012, the Canon EOS Rebel T4i may be the first and last DSLR any hobbyist or enthusiast will ever need to capture stunning landscapes, interesting travel images, beautiful portraits and great video of family events. Canon chose it as the first EOS camera to have the new Hybrid CMOS autofocus system. It focuses faster and more precisely and provides continuous operation in Live View whether shooting stills or video. Canon has balanced the intricacies of this new AF technology with the ease and simplicity of Touch Focus functionality on the LCD screen. Sharp focus is achieved by touching the screen where any subject or object is located. Use the Touch Shutter feature and the AF system will trigger the shutter when the subject or object is sharply in focus. The Rebel T4i doesn’t just have 1080/30p Full-HD video recording, but also it’s the first EOS camera with a Movie Servo AF. It locks on and continuously tracks moving subjects, so they remain in focus throughout moviemaking.

  1. Canon EOS 60Da DSLR

 

EOS 60Da If you’re a photographer interested in astrophotography, or shooting high quality images of the night sky, then Canon has the perfect DSLR camera for you. The EOS 60Da is a special version of the very popular 60D model. It includes the 60D’s 18.0-MP APS-C-sized CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4 Processor and an ISO sensitivity range to 12,800. Both the sensor and the ISO capability reduce the digital noise that would otherwise be visible in astrophotography because of long exposure times. What makes the 60Da different and perfect for the photographer of the cosmos is its customized infrared blocking filter. It blocks the red color of a particular gas emitted by many nebulae, so images show accurate colors and are crisper. Canon also built the 60Da with its Remote Controller Adapter RA-E3, which works with the optional Time Remote Controller TC-80N3. These are essential tools for the avid astrophotographer.

Overview

Canon EOS 60DA
The first astrophotography-specialized DSLR since the 2004-vintage Canon EOS 20Da, the 60Da shares most of the features of the 60D, but with one key differences that will put a smile on any stargazer's face.

The Canon EOS 60Da features increased IR sensitivity for astrophotography (IR cut filter is modified to achieve a hydrogen-alpha (Ha) light (656nm) transparency approximately three times higher than the EOS 60D and other digital cameras) allowing crisp, clear images of reddish, diffuse nebulae. To capture the full range of colors given off by diffuse nebulae in the sky, the EOS 60Da features a specially tailored infrared blocking filter that allows the light normally blocked by a typical DSLR's filter to be captured by the camera's sensor. This means that the reddish hydrogen-alpha (Ha) light (656nm) gasses unseen by a normal DSLR are captured brightly and clearly on the EOS 60Da. With its modified infrared blocking filter, the EOS 60Da captures approximately 3x the hydrogen-alpha (Ha) rays than the EOS 60D, resulting in astrophotography that is sharper, clearer and more accurate.

Along with the the Canon EOS 60Da a Remote Controller Adapter RA-E3, which allows compatibility with the optional Timer Remote Controller TC-80N3 for accurate control of long exposures and automatic shooting of repetitive shots with the interval timer is being bundled with the camera.

In all other ways, the camera shares the same features as the original 60D, including an 18MP CMOS sensor (a significant upgrade from the 20Da's 8MP sensor), with an ISO range of 100-6400 up to 12800, custom functions, a 3-inch flip-out LCD with 1,040,000 dot resolution and compatibility with the entire range of Canon EF and EF-S lenses. .

EOS Performance, Brilliant Results
18.0 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor
The EOS 60Da features an 18.0 Megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor that captures such a highlevel of resolution it's easy to crop images for enlargement without concern of losing detail. A major factor in reducing noise, the CMOS sensor assures that images shot at highest sensitivity will be remarkably smooth even with the long exposures associated with astrophotography.

ISO 100-6400; expandable to ISO 12800 in H mode
With a broad range of ISO settings, expandable up to ISO 12800 with Custom Functions, the EOS 60Da can capture fine details with lownoise, which is exceptionally ideal for the challenging conditions of astrophotography.

DIGIC 4 Image Processor
The DIGIC 4 Image Processor - the same found on the original EOS 60D - ensures that images are captured, processed and saved with remarkable speed. The EOS 60Da offers multiple aspect ratio shooting, in-camera RAW image processing, creative filters, image resizing and provides S2 and S3 image-recording quality thanks to the power of the DIGIC 4 Image Processor. With dazzling results, the DIGIC 4 Image Processor also works to capture and process data of images shot at 18.0 Megapixels at 5.3 fps, as well as 14-bit signal processing for excellent image gradation, no matter the exposure.

Bright and Easy Viewing at Any Angle
Vari-angle 3.0-inch Clear View LCD and Live View.
The EOS 60Da features a bright, high resolution, flip-out Vari-angle 3.0-inch Clear View LCD monitor for shooting at a variety of angles. Convenient in all situations, the monitor's flexibility lends itself to tripod-mounted shooting towards the sky, offering a comfortable alternative to through-the-lens composition.

With 1,040,000 dots for spectacular detail, the advanced, smudge-resistant monitor includes high transparency materials plus anti-reflective and water-repellant coatings to provide clear and bright viewing. Superb for reviewing, editing and deleting photos or composing new images in Live View function, the Vari-angle Clear View LCD monitor is also the perfect means for accessing camera settings like ISO, metering modes, AF Point selection, and the horizontal Electronic Level.

EOS Control in the Palm of Your Hand
Remote Controller Adapter RA-E3.
The EOS 60Da comes bundled with the new Remote Controller Adapter RA-E3 for total compatibility with Canon's remote switch for EOS cameras with the N3-type socket, the Timer Remote Controller TC-80N3. This remote switch has a self-timer, interval timer, long exposure timer and exposure-count setting feature. The timer can be set from 1 second to 99 hours. A dial enables numerous settings to be accessed one-handed. It has an illuminated LCD panel and a 2.6ft/80cm cord. Perfect for nighttime setups, and for shooting at the sky, the Timer Remote Controller TC-80N3 is the perfect complement to the EOS 60Da's power.

An Extensive Family of Lenses and Accessories
EF and EF-S Lenses.
The EOS 60Da is compatible with all Canon lenses in the EF and EF-S lineup, ranging from ultra-wide angle to super telephoto lenses.Canon lenses employ advanced optical expertise and micron-precision engineering to deliver unprecedented performance in all facets of the photographic process. Special optical technologies, such as aspherical, ultra-low dispersion, or fluorite elements are featured in the universally acclaimed L-series lenses. And Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer technology is featured in select lenses to minimize the effect of camera shake. Additionally, the lenses used for astrophotography are compatible with every other EOS SLR; Canon wide-angle, macro, super-telephoto, tilt-shift and fisheye lenses provide a wealth of focal lengths, depth-of-field and other creative shooting options.

EOS Accessories.
Canon offers a host of accessories to help photographers make the most of the EOS 60Da's powerful features. For long exposures usingLive View, the AC Adapter Kit ACK-E6 provides a constant source of AC power to the camera. For composing through the viewfinder, Angle Finder C enables an adjustable viewing angle while providing a 2.5x magnification for critical focusing with a full screen image that also shows exposure data. Battery Grip BG-E9 enables the use of AA batteries or two LP-E6 batteries and adds the convenience of access to all the cameras features in both portrait and landscape orientation.

  1. Canon EOS 7D DSLR

 

EOS 7DWith the Canon EOS 7D in their hands, photographers will have definitely advanced into the intermediate level of DSLR cameras. It has proven to be one of the most popular APS-C (or cropped sensor) cameras with serious amateurs as well as semi-professionals. It has the features that will allow any photographer to produce the kind of quality images that a growing clientele will be eager to purchase. This is exactly where the EOS 7D excels with its 18-MP CMOS sensor and 2 DIGIC 4 Image Processors, plus ISO sensitivity to 12,800 and a speedy maximum 8 frames per second continuous shooting. The 7D is also the first DSLR in the Canon line that is built for rugged use, having a magnesium alloy body and dust- and weather-resistant features. During 2012, Canon gave the 7D a major upgrade with the new Firmware 2.0.X, which increases the maximum burst rate for continuous shooting, makes the camera compatible with the GPS Receiver GP-E2 and provides many other improvements that transforms the 7D into an even greater image-making tool.

  1. Canon EOS 6D DSLR

 

EOS 6DThis is Canon’s newest entry in the full-frame DSLR market, having introduced it at the October 2012 Photokina Show in Germany. There’s no doubt its direct rival is Nikon’s new D600. Positioned as the “introductory” model of Canon’s full-frame DSLRs, the 6D looks more like the intermediate 60D, in terms of body style and controls; however, it has many more features and capabilities than what are found on the 60D. Most notable is the 6D’s 20.2-MP, full-frame CMOS sensor that was developed specifically for this camera. Its DIGIC 5+ image processor; an ISO range of 100–25,600, which expands to 50–102,400; and large, bright viewfinder with 97% coverage give the serious amateur and professional optimum creative opportunities. Canon has chosen the EOS 6D as its first DSLR with GPS and Wi-Fi technology, as mobile and social connections become more important to more photographers. What photographers may come to like most about the 6D’s Wi-Fi function is using it in combination with a smartphone, which then serves as a wireless remote control.

  1. Canon EOS 5D Mark II DSLR

 

EOS 5D Mark IIWhen Canon upgraded its legendary EOS 5D to the 5D Mark II during November 2008, it gave many professional photographers, especially wedding photographers, what has become a bit of a legendary workhorse in its own right. Pairing a 21.1-MP, full-frame CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 4 Image Processor allows the 5D Mark III to process images as fast as 3.9 frames per second, an important feature for pros. Serious photographers also have the full range of Live View capabilities, including passive and contrast-detect AF as well as face-detect AF. Live View is also fully operational during video recording. That 1080p Full-HD video has actually increased the value of the 5D Mark II because when it was released, pros didn’t think much of video in a full-frame camera. Now, their perspective has changed and more pros are eager to shoot in both media, making the 5D Mark II a more creative tool.

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is built around a new 22.3 megapixel full-frame, self-cleaning CMOS sensor and promises high perforance and claims improved noise reduction at higher ISOs with its DIGIC 5+ sensor and up to 6 frames per second burst rate in RAW and JPEG. Additional technological advancements include an Intelligent Viewfinder, Canon's advanced iFCL metering system, High Dynamic Range (HDR), and Multiple Exposure mode.

A newly-designed 61-Point High-Density Reticular AF system is said to be Canon's most sophisticated AF to date, featuring multi-zonewide-area AF for better tracking. A new dedicated AF menu tab saves users from digging through menu functions. A new Multi-layer iFCL (intelligent Focus Color Luminance) metering system takes color and luminosity surrounding chosen AF points into account, whichCanon says will provide new levels of accuracy in fast-changing, tricky light.

Another new feature is High Dynamic Range (HDR); the Canon EOS 5D Mark III can merge 3 images at different exposures to create a final image with a broad range of shadow and highlight detail. In-camera HDR can cover a range up to +/- 3 stops in five different settings. The camera's control layout has been changed, with Canon adding more customizable controls and a new ergonomic design. A new "intelligent viewfinder" includes 100% coverage and a dual-axis electronic level indicator.

Improvements in video capture
The video and cinema industries have been eagerly anticipating the Canon EOS 5D Mark III for improvements over its groundbreaking predecessor. Canon claims the 5D Mark III can capture HD video with a level of sophistication on par with professional movie camerasoffering phenomenal performance on a DSLR. It offers both All-I and IPB compression, supports H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High Profile, and automatically splits files greater than 4GB (FAT specifications) for extended recording without interruption.

The Canon 5D Mark III offers the option of timecoding during recording only (Rec Run) or at all times (Free Run), useful for multi-camera shoots. It also features improved sound recording adjustment capabilities, offering 64-step volume control accessible through the Quick Control screen during video shooting, plus a dedicated headphone jack for convenience in shooting. The CMOS sensor's new drive system is said to significantly increas image processor performance, reducing color artifacts and moiré (a commonproblem that occurs in scenes with horizontal lines), and ensures that the EOS 5D Mark III can record at a number of frame rates up to ISO 25600 in H mode.

The Canon 5D Mark III is commonly used for Family photos, Landscape/scenery, Low light, Travel, Video, Weddings, Wildlife and more.The Canon 5D Mark III is most used by customers who consider themselves to be a Photo enthusiast, Pro photographer among others.The Canon 5D Mark III is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Canon 5D Mark III: Easy to use, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Fast shutter speed, Good image quality, High ISO performance, Large clear LCD, Quiet to mention just a few.

  1. Canon EOS-1D X DSLR

 

EOS 1DX With the release of the EOS-1D X during early 2012, Canon has brought a full-frame DSLR camera to the marketplace that is quickly becoming the new professional standard. What makes the EOS-1D X shine brighter than any of its competition is Canon’s emphasis on image quality and speed. Both of these characteristics are evident in the combination of an 18-MP, full-frame CMOS sensor and 3 DIGIC processors. The 2 DIGIC 5+ processors focus on rendering incredible image quality while a separate DIGIC 4 processor is dedicated exclusively for auto-focus and auto-exposure. This DIGIC 4 processor drives a 61-point AF system with 41 cross points. The speed of the EOS-1D X is also found in a continuous shooting mode of as many as 12 frames per second for RAW and 14fps for JPEGs. Image quality, and the reduction of digital noise, even in low light, is also greatly enhanced with an ISO range of 100–51,200 that can be expanded to 204,800. With many industry-standard video functions, the EOS-1D X has already become a serious video camera for documentary videographers and motion picture directors.
