An overview of the latest professional and prosumer digital cameras from Canon.
20.2 Megapixel APS-C
Canon's innovative Dual Pixel CMOS AF enables you to shoot video like a camcorder with smooth, fast, and accurate autofocus; lets you enjoy instant and precise autofocus even when shooting stills from a variety of angles with the freedom provided by the Vari-angle LCD; and provides amazing autofocus power with 103 compatible Canon EF lenses when shooting photos or video.
The Canon EOS 6D is the world's smallest and lightest full-frame DSLR. It features a 20.2 Megapixel Full-Frame CMOS sensor, a wide ISO range of 100-25600, expandable to L: 50 - H1: 51200 and H2: 102400, for incredible image quality even in low light, and a DIGIC 5+ Image Processor that delivers enhanced noise reduction and exceptional processing speed.
The EOS 5D Mark III is designed to perform. A newly designed full-frame Canon CMOS sensor, the Canon DIGIC 5+ Image Processor, the High Density Reticular AF and an extended ISO range provide exceptional sharpness and performance. Additional features include an Intelligent Viewfinder, Canon's advanced iFCL metering system that utilizes AF and color information for optimizing exposure and image quality, professional-level high definition video capabilities, High Dynamic Range (HDR), and Multiple Exposure mode.
The EOS-1D X is the new flagship camera in the Canon DSLR range, taking the best of the EOS-1D and EOS-1Ds cameras and melding them into a single unit that gives both high resolution and high speed shooting. By taking the EOS-1D Mark IV and making radical changes to every aspect of the camera's build and design, the EOS-1D X stands head and shoulders above everything that has gone before to offer high resolution, high frame rate and high ISO shooting with a full-frame CMOS sensor, and industry leading HD Movie shooting in one camera.

The Canon EOS 5D Mark II succeeds the EOS 5D. The EOS 5D Mark II features a newly developed full-size 21.1-megapixel CMOS sensor that offers an expanded standard ISO sensitivity range of ISO 100–6400 which can be expanded to ISO 50, 12800 and 25600.
15.1 Megapixel APS-C
The mid-range Canon EOS 50D raises image quality and high-speed image processing to next levels with advancements in two key devices: the developed approximately 15.1-million effective pixel CMOS sensor (APS-C size) and the redesigned high-performance DIGIC 4 imaging processor.
10.1 Megapixel APS-C
The new Canon EOS 40D is the successor model to the EOS 30D. Through the incorporation of state-of-the-art camera technologies, the EOS 40D offers high-level amateur users even more advanced functionality and responsiveness.
The Canon EOS 5D was developed to meet the needs of advanced amateurs seeking a high-performance 35 mm full-frame image-sensor-equipped digital SLR camera that is smaller and lighter than professional models.
Expanding upon the highly acclaimed functions of the EOS-1D Mark III launched in May 2007, the EOS-1Ds Mark III is a professional digital SLR camera designed to meet the rigorous demands of professional portrait, merchandise, and landscape photographers.
