APS-C Hybrid CMOS AF II Sensor
Designed and manufactured by Canon to work in combination with its own DIGIC image processors, Canon’s CMOS technology integrates advanced noise reduction circuitry at each pixel site, delivering virtually noise-free images. In comparison with CCD technology, the lower power consumption characteristics of Canon’s CMOS sensors also contribute to longer battery life.
The EOS 100D features a new Hybrid CMOS AF II Sensor that uses a combination of phase detection pixels located on the sensor, along with contrast AF to acquire swift and accurate focus. Compared to Hybrid CMOS AF, the new Hybrid AF II Sensor has phase detection pixels over a larger proportion of the sensor’s area – approximately 80% of the height and width. As a result, the EOS 100D is able to quickly achieve focus across the entire scene – both in stills and Full HD movies.
Creative Filters with Live View
The EOS 100D provides a range of Creative Filters which can now be previewed at the time of shooting when using Live View mode. Alternatively, users have the option to apply filters to selected images after the shot is captured. Seven different filters are available to choose from: Art bold effect, Water Painting effect, Fisheye effect, Grainy B/W, Soft focus, Toy camera effect and Miniature effect.
Creative Auto with Extra Effect Shot and Background Blurring
Creative Auto is a shooting mode that offers an easy to navigate range of creative options for beginner DSLR users wishing to experiment. In addition to the pre-existing Creative Auto modes, the EOS 100D includes two new features – Extra Effect Shot and enhanced Background Blurring.
Extra Effect Shot allows users to capture two images simultaneously with just one press of the shutter. One image is captured using the camera’s standard image settings, and an additional image is also taken at the same time with a Creative Effect applied. Users can choose from a range of creative effects when using Extra Effect Shot, including Creative Filters, Ambience Effects and Pictures Styles. Once both images have been captured they appear side-by-side on the EOS 100D LCD screen, making it easy for users to see the impact of their creative choice.
The EOS 100D features a new Background Blurring function, which can also be previewed on the LCD, and uses the aperture priority AE settings to apply image blur, allowing users to experiment with blurring the background in a simple way.
Miniature Effect in Movie
Miniature Effect from Canon’s Creative filter selection can now be applied to movies. Designed to recreate the effect of tilt-shift photography, Miniature Effect in Movie creates a timelapse effect at three speeds.
• Five times faster (one minute of recording results in approximately 12 seconds of footage in Miniature Effect in Movie mode)
• 10 times faster (one minute of recording results in approximately 6 seconds of footage)
• 20 times faster (one minute of recording results in approximately 3 seconds of footage)
New Scene Modes: Kids, Food, and Candlelight
The EOS 100D features three new automatic scene modes which have optimised settings designed to capture great shots in specific scenarios in stunning detail. The new scene modes are:
• Kids: designed to capture fast-moving children whilst capturing skin-tones as naturally as possible
• Food: optimised settings to ensure shots of food look more appealing and detailed
• Candlelight: settings have been optimised to be able to accurately capture the warm glow of candlelight
STM technology (EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM)
The new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM features Canon’s Stepping Motor (STM) technology - providing smooth, near-silent auto focus – ideal for shooting movies or quiet situations. The STM used in the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM is a lead screw type, which is quieter and smoother compared to the more compact gear type mechanism.
The STM technology works by using two guide bars that are fixed at both ends of the lens’ moveable lens group. When zooming, the focus lens barrel travels in the direction of the optic axis, along the two guide bars, which help to minimise the load on the lens barrel. The Stepping Motor is connected to rack on the lens barrel through a precision lead screw, which then rotates to create the driving force to move the barrel along the optic axis.
Non-rotating front element (EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM)
The EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM features a new non rotating front element ideal for using filters. The lens has been engineered so that the front element does not rotate when users adjust the focus. As a result, any filters applied to the front of the lens remain in a static position, even when the focus ring is adjusted, therefore removing the need to readjust the filter position during shooting – perfect for use with polarising filters.
CANON PRESS RELEASE
21 March 2013
Canon unveils the smallest and lightest DSLR ever made
Canon today unveils the smallest and lightest APS-C DSLR ever made – the EOS 100D. This is complemented by the introduction of a new standard zoom lens, the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM.
The EOS 100D offers a range of simple controls and a helpful in-camera feature guide, perfect for those looking to explore the world of DSLR photography for the first time but without the bulk normally associated with a DSLR. The camera offers outstanding 18 Megapixel (MP) resolution with simple touch screen operation, making it easy to capture and relive every moment in stunning detail, whatever your skill level
The new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM is the ideal standard zoom lens for the camera, combining Canon’s leading Optical Image Stabilizer and Stepping Motor (STM) technologies to deliver minimal image blur and smooth, near-silent focus in movies.
A DSLR you’ll never want to leave behind
The EOS 100D is the smallest and lightest APS-C DSLR in its class (as of 21 March 2013) making it compact enough to take everywhere so you can capture adventures in stunning quality. Measuring just 116.8 x 90.7 x 69.4mm and weighing only 407g, the incredibly lightweight and compact body also features a bright Optical Viewfinder – giving users the full, responsive experience of a DSLR in a compact form. The EOS 100D also features a large 7.7cm (3-inch) ClearView II Capacitive Touch screen – making it easy to adjust settings and instantly review shots after capture.
