A rugged magnesium alloy body provides the first clue that the EOS
20D is no ordinary camera. Canon's award-winning CMOS technology delivers
outstanding image quality and 8.2 Megapixel resolution. The DIGIC II architecture
drives blistering 5fps continuous shooting with a maximum burst of 23 frame
JPEG images, class-leading colour rendition accuracy, quick start-up times
and rapid display and zooming of images during in-camera review. JPEG and
RAW files write simultaneously with no loss of performance.
9 auto focus points are carefully distributed across a wide area of
the frame for fast, accurate focusing, even with off-centre subjects and
particularly with 'rule-of-thirds' compositions.
The E-TTL distance-linked flash algorithm takes factors such as lens
distance information and ambient light readings into account for accurate
flash metering, even in circumstances such as recomposed shots, or where
high or low reflective objects appear in the frame. The camera is compatible
with the entire EX-series Speedlite flash range. This includes the 580EX,
which transmits colour temperature information for improved colour stability
and auto zooms to match the camera's APS-C sensor size.
The EOS 20D is compatible with more than 60 Canon EF lenses, including
Canon's EF-S lenses. Built with the EOS 20D photographer in mind, the EF-S
10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM and EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM cover popular wide
(approx. 16-35mm) and standard (approx. 27-136mm) ranges in the 35mm equivalent.
An extreme high (3200 ISO) setting extends the camera's wide 100-1600
ISO speed range. Both sRGB and Adobe RGB colour spaces are supported. Digital
Photo Professional image processing software permits high-speed processing
of lossless RAW files.
The EOS 20D's USB 2.0 Hi-Speed connection enables fast download of
images to the computer. PictBridge compliant, the camera supports direct
printing to any compatible photo printer. It takes both CF and CF-II cards,
including cards of over 2GB capacity.
Free membership is included to Canon's online CANON iMAGE GATEWAY*,
with 100 Megabytes of free storage space for online album storing and sharing.
Users can upload images to the site and direct clients, friends and family
to secure online 'albums'.
