Canon EOS 300D - Digital camera reviews
An APS-C sized sensor gives the camera a 1.6x magnification over 35mm film format. In order to furnish EOS 300D customers with the equivalent 28-90mm zoom range so popular with 35mm film EOS users, a new EF-S 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 lens has been specially developed. This lens takes advantage of the compact sensor size, employing a ‘short back focus system’ which mounts the lens closer to the sensor than previous models. This provides high-quality images in a remarkably low-weight, short-length lens.
The 6.3 Megapixel CMOS sensor is almost identical to that found in the award-winning EOS 10D which remains the benchmark for image quality. ISO speeds of 100, 200, 400, 800 and 1600 are selectable, giving film users a film speed range with which they will be comfortable.
