The third generation of the lens-interchangeable digital camera from Canon was developed with a high density area CCD containing 2.0 megapixels. Greatly reduced in size compared to the previous EOS DCS series. Rechargeable Ni-Cd battery used. EOS D2000 is compatible with more than 40 EF lenses. 340 MB of memory allows up to 160 high-quality images. Continuous shooting at 3.5 fps in 12-frame bursts enabled. Full-frame finder incorporated. The equivalent film speed range is ISO 200-1600. Audio recording enabled with built-in microphone. Image confirmation, histogram display and excessive exposure warning is enabled with 1.8″ color LCD monitor. IEEE 1394 interface adopted.

Type AF single-reflex lens digital camera. Single-shot camera with 36 bit full-color (RGB each 12 bits). Object frame size: 15.5 x 22.8mm. 2 megapixel CCD (1,728 horizontal x 1,152 vertical pixels. Aspect ratio = 2:3, equivalent to 135 film) Maximum continuous shooting at 3.6 fps in 12-frame bursts.
