12 Megapixel Canon D10 digital camera
Incredible 12.1 Megapixel resolution is captured by the cameraís sensor, allowing the freedom to crop or enlarge images while retaining outstanding image detail. The 3x zoom lens offers a range of versatile framing options, with Image Stabilizer preventing camera-shake from causing unwanted blur. This is particularly useful when participating in the high-movement activities for which the camera is designed.
Canon D10 an easy to use digital camera
To ensure that users stay focused on the action, DIGIC 4 powers a host of intelligent features that make great photos effortless. A new Smart Auto mode uses Scene Detection Technology to analyse the shooting scene in detail - checking subject brightness, contrast, distance and overall hue. The camera then selects the optimum mode from 18 possible choices, ensuring perfect settings for the scene. Even the most active situations can be photographed blur-free thanks to Canonís Motion Detection Technology, which detects both camera and subject movement and adjusts settings accordingly. Naturally great people shots are assured by Face Detection Technology, which now also includes new Blink Detection, to avoid the disappointment of mistimed people shots. Canonís i-Contrast brightens dark areas in an image without blowing out lighter areas.
Canon PowerShot D10 - PureColor LCD
The Canon D10 also features a special 2.5Ē PureColor LCD II, which has been specially modified for better outdoor performance. Protected by a 2mm protective shield, it offers double the brightness of a normal PureColor LCD II - allowing easy framing or image review in virtually any environment. From the beach to the ski-slopes, a wide range of shooting modes and Special Scene modes - including dedicated Underwater, Snow and Beach modes - delivers instant fingertip access to the correct settings. Face Self-Timer simplifies group shots by waiting until the user enters the frame before shooting.
