Digital SLRs: Lower Prices at the High End


The Canon EOS 10D ($1,500 street) is the company's third-generation consumer digital SLR, and it shows, offering an unbeatable combination of image quality, ergonomics, and value. Canon has addressed the few complaints we had with previous models...

Sturdy body ; Remarkable image quality ; Affordable ; Autofocus system is much improved

Automatic image rotation doesn't work on the Mac ; No white-balance fine-tuning ; Interface changes may take some getting used to

Canon EOS 10D Digital Camera (Canon-8363A013)


The EOS 10D brings digital SLRs down from their stratospheric prices, giving any serious photographer a powerful and flexible imaging tool.

Canon EOS 10D


Great value for a digital SLR; broad, flexible feature set; excellent performance; very low image noise

Idiosyncratic metering; hard to get tack-sharp images; no spot metering; RAW utility doesn't pass EXIF information to extracted JPEG files

Though not without its quirks, the 10D is a great candidate for a first digital SLR.

Canon EOS 10D


A year on and just as they did with the EOS-D60 Canon announced its successor, the EOS-10D two days before the start of the PMA show. In total it's three years since the original EOS-D30 was announced (although only two since it hit the streets). The...

Excellent resolution, pulls ahead of EOS-D60 (just), no moiré at resolution limit ; Good color, if different response than the EOS-D60, Adobe RGB delivers better accuracy ; Noise free 'silky smooth' images ; Very low noise levels even at ISO 1600,...

Opening the CF compartment door shuts camera down, loses any buffered images ; Average automatic white balance performance, we expected more ; Confusing sequence of lights in AI Servo auto focus ; Stuck pixel noise in very long night exposures (3 mins...

Canon had a tough act to follow, the EOS-D60 carved outan excellent name for itself from reviewers and owners alike. With thatin mind Canon stuck to the formula, a 'half height' digital SLR body witha similar layout to the EOS-D60 but this time it...

Canon EOS 10D


The Canon EOS 10D was introduced at an unheard-of-at-the-time price with some nice incremental advances over its predecessor, Canon D60

Once again, when coupled with the best of the Canon lenses, the results from this Canon are excellent. The digital pictures from the Canon EOS 10D are amazing. Images have very low noise for a smooth, pristine look - and they are very sharp. In the end...

Canon EOS-10D Digital Camera Review: Intro and Highlights


Look along the sidelines of any professional sports game, and the array of big, white Canon lenses will speak volumes of Canon's presence and reputation in the world of professional photography. If you ask experienced photographers what the Canon name...

While Canon told me that there could be minor tweaks made to the camera between the unit I was given and the final production models, they felt that any such changes would be minor. Based on the excellent performance turned in by my test unit, I'd have...

Canon EOS 10D Review Round-Up


Without a doubt the other most significant thing about the EOS-10D is the price. Other internal improvements included the new LCD monitor, the addition of Adobe RGB, a rotation sensor and crucially support for sensitivity equivalence up to ISO 3200. If...

Product Specifications

The EOS 10D is a high performance digital SLR. It offers the exceptional build quality, image definition and functionality of a high-end analog EOS SLR, with the benefits of digital photography. A 6.3 Megapixel Canon CMOS sensor delivers superbly detailed images. 7-point high-speed AF allows precise focusing over a wide area. A powerful DIGIC (DIGital Imaging Core) processor optimizes color rendition. High speed processing means a continuous burst of 9 shots at 3 frames per second is possible. It also extends the camera's battery life. The EOS 10D can write RAW and JPEG files simultaneously, while there's a choice of 6 JPEG resolution settings. For enhanced exposure stability, the EOS 10D has a new evaluative metering system for both daylight and flash. As well as sRGB, the EOS 10D features Adobe RGB. This improves color rendition by capturing colors across an extremely wide spectrum. An ISO speed range from 100 - 1600 (3200 Extended HI accessible via the ISO expansion menu) offers extensive shooting flexibility whatever the lighting conditions. 9 white balance modes are available
