Product Description

Canon’s DiG!C 4 processor drives continuous shooting speeds of up to 3.4 fps in bursts of up to 170 JPEGs.  Canon’s wide area AF system makes capturing split-second action sequences possible. It features nine individual sensors, including a central cross type point with a high precision sensor for f/2.8 or faster lenses,  DiG!C 4 works in conjunction with the CMOS sensor to deliver exceptional noise reduction and 14-bit image processing for smooth gradation of tones and natural-looking colours. In addition, DiG!C 4 enables the ultra-fast start-up times and near-instant image review after shooting that photographers demand. Despite its compact, lightweight body, the EOS 500D includes all the hallmarks of the EOS system. Every detail of the EOS 500D – from the large, bright viewfinder to the intuitive EOS menu system – is designed to enhance the shooting experience.  Image quality is protected by the EOS Integrated Cleaning System, which reduces, repels and removes unwanted dust from the sensor. Stubborn particles can be easily removed in post-production by using Dust Delete Data – which can be added to the image in-camera – and Canon’s included Digital Photo Professional software.  Digital Photo Professional software offers a comprehensive RAW editing package, with functions such as a quick check tool, a cropping tool, and a stamp tool – plus the ability to change brightness, White Balance and Picture Styles in RAW images. The software suite is included with EOS Utility and Picture Style editor for unrivalled versatility.  The EOS 500D is compatible with the full range of EF and EF-S lenses and EX-series Speedlites  “The EOS 500D pushes the boundaries of what photographers can demand from their cameras, combining exceptional images with full HD video,” said Rainer Fuehres, Head of Canon Consumer Imaging, Europe. “Photography enthusiasts can now capture their most significant moments in a manner that matches their creativity.”
