A DSLR you will never want to leave behind
The EOS 100D is a fully-featured, responsive DSLR that is also small and light enough to take everywhere. The ideal camera to document your lifestyle. Shoot 18-megapixel photos and Full HD movies everywhere you go and enjoy great performance even in poor light: a maximum ISO sensitivity of 12800 (extendable to ISO 25600) allows you to shoot images that are low in noise but full of atmosphere.
Easy and enjoyable to use
Compose your photos using a bright, responsive optical viewfinder or use the 1,040,000-dot 7.7cm (3.0”) 3:2 Clear View II TFT Touch screen to control the camera. Navigate menus, review pictures and even focus and shoot by tapping, swiping and pinching.
Simple operation – fantastic results
Canons Scene Intelligent Auto technology analyses the scene and sets the most appropriate cameras settings automatically. And as your photography develops a built-in Feature Guide will teach you how to get the most from the camera.
Capture Full HD movies
Shoot high-quality video at resolutions up to Full-HD (1080p). Take control of exposure, focusing, sound and more, or use the Video Snapshot mode to capture edited movie sequences in-camera. Hybrid CMOS AF II provides continuous focusing while shooting, ideal for keeping moving subjects sharp.
Capture the action
Track and shoot fast moving subjects at 4 fps and take advantage of nine AF points to focus swiftly and accurately, even with off-centre subjects.
Taking your next creative steps
Express your creative side with one of the EOS 100Ds Creative filters. Extra Effect Shot captures a filtered and unfiltered shot simultaneously. Choose from Grainy Black & White, Toy Camera, Miniature Effect and more, and preview the effect of each filter before you shoot.
A mode for whatever you are shooting
Theme-based Scene modes automatically choose the right camera settings for the subject you are shooting. Choose from Portrait, Landscape, Sports, Kids, Food and more. And when you are ready, progress to Creative Auto mode for more control over factors like background blur, via an intuitive interface.
