15.1 Megapixels and Full HD - tell the full story with the EOS 500D

Telling the full story often means finding an extra angle on your subject. With 15.1 Megapixels and Full HD video capability, the EOS 500D is a digital SLR for those who want to capture more than one side to life’s significant moments.

A resolution of 15.1 Megapixels records each moment in rich, intricate detail, ready to turn into poster-size prints or crop to perfection. When light levels fall, an ISO range of up to 3200 – expandable all the way up to 12800 – lets you carry on shooting in the darkest of conditions, while Canon’s DIGIC 4 processing ensures that noise doesn’t spoil images. This is particularly ideal for when you can’t, or don’t want to, use flash.

Alternatively, switch to Movie mode and record events as they unfold. Capture every last detail of a wedding, a day out with friends or your baby’s first steps by shooting in stunning Full HD (1080P), then simply connect via HDMI to any HDTV to watch the results. For times when the action just won’t stop, a choice of 720P and VGA resolutions allows you to shoot and store longer movies on your memory card.

The EOS 500D’s high resolution 3.0” ClearView LCD screen enables detailed checks on stills and video footage in playback mode; or shooting from awkward angles using the high quality, real-time feed provided by Live View mode.

As part of the EOS system, the EOS 500D delivers full compatibility with Canon’s world-leading range of lenses and accessories; this is complimented by Canon’s free, powerful imaging software. A new Speedlite flash, the Speedlite 270EX, offers a powerful addition to any EOS 500D photographer’s kitbag.
