For photographers looking to improve their skills, Canon EOS 20D Digital SLR camera offers plenty of features. It has an 8.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and a fast DIGIC II Image Processor. The 20D is a high-performance camera in an affordable package. It has a shutter speed of 1/8000, a flash sync at 1/250, and a nine-point AF system. The high-end features of the EOS 20D will make you feel like a professional. The magnesium alloy body is designed for rough wear and tear. The compatible Canon EF and EF-S lens options make this digital camera versatile for a lot of visual adventures.Canon’s 8.2-Megapixel large area CMOS sensor gives the EOS 20D camera clarity. It has an ISO range from 100 to 1600. In extended mode, the ISO can be expanded to 3200 to keep working even in low-light environments. At high ISOs, narrow-gap microlenses and noise reduction circuits provide high image quality and cut down on graininess. The DIGIC II Image Processor, originally developed for the EOS-1D Mark II DSLR camera, provides the necessary digital processing power. It runs sophisticated signal-processing algorithms for better color enhancement and white balance. It also features the E-TTL II flash metering system that actively controls the flash brightness in different lighting conditions.The EOS 20D features a nine-point autofocus system for high-precision focusing in any situation. You can use the multicontroller in the back of the 20D digital camera to choose any of the nine focus points, or you can let the system choose the points automatically. The viewfinder shows the focusing points in a diamond-shaped array. With the AF system, taking an artistic photo with great composition is easy even if the subject is moving.With a 0.2-second start-up time, 65-millisecond shutter release lag time, and predictive AF focusing speed of 5 FPS, the Canon 20D is fast. The camera has JPEG or simultaneous RAW+JPEG mode. JPEG images are smaller in size and more efficient for online use. However, RAW format maintains a very high image quality through storing more information. Canon’s proprietary RAW images in CR2 format uses lossless compression to record 12 bits per pixel and provide more detail and contrast in image resolution. You can use Canon software on your computer to generate JPEGs from your RAW images.The Canon 20D DSLR body was built to last. Plastic and steel with magnesium alloy panels give the cameras a solid structure. With the ergonomic design for proper grip and shutter button placement, the camera body is easy to handle. The built-in flash blends in beautifully with the design of this model. Instead of the viewfinder, the 1.8-inch HD TFT color LCD can be used to monitor composition, focus, and lighting. The multicontroller enables horizontal and vertical scrolling. You can expand your images on the LCD screen to inspect your results. You can also rotate the pictures on the camera screen to change image orientation.This Canon EOS camera runs on lithium-ion batteries, and the accessories pack includes a charger. The compatible Canon EF and EF-S lineups offer ultra-wide-angle to super-telephoto lenses. With any type of lens, photographers will get precision results from this device.
