EOS SLR CAMERAS EOS Full HD Video Advantage


Full HD


Full HD Video – Many EOS SLR cameras capture Full HD video at 1920 x 1080 resolution for exquisite detail and sharpness.

When shooting a video on an EOS DSLR, it’s simple to control each shot’s depth-of-field, an option previously available only when filming with expensive professional cinema cameras. Thanks to the physical size of EOS DSLR CMOS sensors, combined with the large maximum apertures achieved by Canon lenses, depth-offield, or lack thereof, can be a creative decision reached solely by the photographer. If a large aperture is chosen, thus creating shallow depthof-field, evocative, dramatic moving images with blurred backgrounds can be attained with ease, something simply not possible with smaller sensors or compact cameras. If everything must be in focus, shooting with a small aperture helps ensure phenomenal depth-of-field, for illustrative landscapes, architecture or anything else where all details must be recorded. The drama, beauty and mood achievable by controlling a movie clip’s depth-of-field cannot be overstated — and an EOS DSLR controls it with ease.

Creative Capabilities with EOS lenses

Select EOS DSLRs feature 1920 x 1080 Full HD video capture and offer the enhanced image quality, smooth frame rates and adaptive exposure compensation necessary in professional movie-making tools. By shooting video with a digital EOS camera, it’s simple to take advantage of the image quality and characteristics intrinsic to DSLRs, resulting in richer, more detailed and more diverse images. The large sensor found in EOS DSLRs means more high quality pixels plus the potential to shoot at higher ISO sensitivities without loss of detail. EOS Full HD Video EOS DSLRs increase shooting flexibility for the videographer in that they allow for full use of Canon EF and EF-S lenses, including wide-angle, macro, super-telephoto, tilt-

shift and fisheye, providing a wealth of focal lengths, depth-of-field and other creative shooting options once reserved for still photography. All Live View AF features can also be used in shooting video, and playback modes are available in-camera, with sound. Combined with their size, image quality and flexibility, EOS DSLRs with Full HD video capture are superlative all-in-one, multimedia image-capturing tools.

Manual Control

Exposure control in the display


For complete creative decision-making on the go, select EOS DSLRs offer flexible manual controls for their movie modes. Not only can one take advantage of the DSLR’s range of ISO sensi-

tivities, it’s simple to control exposure and depth-of-field, all of which can have a profound effect on the mood of a scene. It’s all as easy as the press of a button. By controlling depthof-field, it’s simple to create gorgeous background blur. Exposure can be determined and set even in complex lighting situations, maintaining the same look and feel throughout an entire scene, not just the initial shot.

From fisheye to super-telephoto, the amazing Canon EF and EF-S lenses offer a stunning combination of sharpness, speed, compactness and flexibility — the perfect complement to a user’s creativity. With the ability to create images of great beauty, with controlled depth-of-field, interchangeable lenses bring moviemaking to a whole

new level. And the range of focal lengths is simply staggering. With over 60 lenses available, including the new Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM, the world’s first real fisheye zoom lens that functions as a circular fisheye and full-frame fisheye for a full size CMOS sensor, and as a full-frame fisheye for APS-C/H sizes, there’s an EF or EF-S lens for everyone. No matter the photographer, no matter the situation, Canon’s superlative lenses help ensure quality results.

close-ups. This feature is perfect when the chosen subject is in a crowd, like a specific athlete, when it’s impossible to get close to the action.

Frame Rates In select models, EOS Full HD video movies can be captured at 1920 x 1080 resolution, for up to 4GB per clip. Movies are saved as MOV files and can be viewed in Full HD with HDMI output. Other Resolution­

recording sizes include HD at 1280 x 720 (50/60 fps) or SD/VGA at 640 x 480 (50/60 fps). No matter the end-application, the proper resolution and frame rate is easily defined with EOS cameras.

Recorded as a VGA movie, Movie Crop shots are perfect for emailing, posting online, or editing into other movie clips.

Sound Recording Level Adjustment To ensure the best possible recording of sound, a number of EOS DSLRs offer a host of usercontrolled sound recording adjustments. The manual sound recording level can be adjusted to one of 64 levels, and an optional wind filter can minimize unwanted excess sounds. Whether shooting through an external microphone (on certain EOS models) or through the camera’s internal mic, this important feature means more audible voices, less unwanted noise, and better overall sound.

Interchangeable EF/EF-S Lenses – Creative opportunities are at your fingertips thanks to Canon EF/EF-S Lenses.

Large CMOS Sensor With amazing Canon CMOS sensors, video is easy to shoot, and looks better than ever before. Large sensors provide a look and perspective impossible to achieve with traditional video cameras, and the quality must be seen to be believed. Large sensors also capture more light, and can record at high ISO sensitivities with less digital gain and reduced image noise. This enables low-light shooting, without loss of detail, in situations previously impossible without artificial light. Although many devices, even mobile phones, offer HD recording, the quality of video captured by an EOS DSLR and its CMOS sensor is markedly vibrant and truer to life.

Fisheye lenses impart an extraordinary perspective and angle-of-view far beyond the limits of human vision.

Tilt-shift lenses allow you to control the area of focus.

Macro lenses let you get up close for detailed shots of small subjects.

Wide-angle lenses are perfect for shooting in tight spaces or to capture large expanses.

Telephoto Lenses Canon’s amazing telephoto lenses bring the action closer, emphasizing the subject at hand.
