Canon EOS 1000D with 18-55mm IS lens

$459.00 to $882.00



The precise auto focus system of the EOS 1000D keeps you focused for sharp images. Featuring a diamond-shaped array of seven AF points, this newly improved system delivers outstanding coverage of nearly any subject, both in horizontal and vertical formats. The seven AF points — one high-precision cross-type center AF point with f/2.8 sensitivity and six others compatible at f/5.6 — provide fast, accurate auto focus for any Canon EF lens even when shooting in low-light environments. Focus points can be assigned automatically using one of three different AF modes or manually.Minimize

It offers three contrast-detect AF modes to allow photographers to focus on any point in the frame, enabling a greater variety of composition. In addition to wide and normal area AF, the D90 offers Face-priority AF in Live View mode for even sharper portraits. These are just some of the powerful features housed in a compact, comfortable-to-hold body, with intuitive controls. The D90 will satisfy the requirements of passionate photographers who demand superior image quality and want exciting photographic possibilities.Minimize

Canon EOS 5D Mark II Body Only


The Canon EOS 5D Mark II Digital SLR camera automatically conducts peripheral illumination correction when shooting JPEG images, a function that previously could only be accomplished through post-image processing using software such as Canon's Digital Photo Professional, which Canon supplies at no extra charge. Peripheral illumination correction evens brightness across the image field, making an image of a blue sky even toned throughout and reducing light fall-off at image edges. This new feature essentially eliminates one of the limitations of previous full-frame digital SLRs.Minimize
