Canon’s EOS Kiss Digital N is the successor to the immensely popular EOS Kiss Digital, which has sold around 1.2 million units*1 worldwide since its debut in September 2003. Based on the development concepts of high image quality, responsiveness, and ease of use, the new EOS Kiss Digital N, realizing the smallest body in the EOS Digital series, is also the world’s lightest among digital SLR cameras*2. The model also incorporates revolutionary advances in image quality, design, functionality and cost performance.
The EOS Kiss Digital N features a Canon-developed large single-plate CMOS sensor with approximately 8.0 million effective pixels and an image size measuring 22.2 x 14.8 mm (APS-C size). Coupled with Canon’s exclusive DIGIC II image engine, which achieves super high-speed processing of large-volume data, the camera delivers high-definition, high-quality image processing and natural color rendition to satisfy the demands of a broad user base.
The EOS Kiss Digital N backs outstanding image quality with high responsiveness to ensure that no photo opportunity is lost. The camera achieves a continuous shooting speed of approximately 3.0 frames per second for up to around 14 consecutive frames (JPEG L, Fine) in a sequence and realizes an ultra-fast startup of just 0.2 seconds. The model writes images to the CompactFlash card media at more than three times the speed of its predecessor, the EOS Kiss Digital, and includes a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interface, enabling high-speed data transfer to a PC.
The latest addition to Canon’s digital SLR camera lineup features a high-speed 7-point wide area autofocus (AF) with focusing points superimposed in the viewfinder for easy framing. It also incorporates new white balance functions, such as WB correction, permitting users to adjust for blue, amber, magenta or green hues; and WB bracketing, which enables shots to be taken in the magenta-green direction as well as the blue-amber direction. Additionally, the model’s wide range of processing parameters include a new monochrome mode that makes black and white photography easier than ever.
The EOS Kiss Digital N is compatible with Canon’s E-TTL II auto-flash system. When using one of the EX-series Speedlite lineup, E-TTL II utilizes distance information and other data provided through the lens to deliver stable flash-brightness control that minimizes the impact of changes in subject brightness, reflectivity and framing.
A convenient cross-key layout on the back of the camera enables direct access to the four most commonly used functions–AF mode, metering mode, white balance, and ISO speed–and a large main switch and easy-set mode dial offer simple right-handed operation that takes users quickly from startup to shooting. The camera also includes an Easy Print button which, when connected to one of Canon’s Direct Print-enabled photo printers or other PictBridge-compatible printers, allows users to easily print out high-quality photos without a PC.
The EOS Kiss Digital N employs a new compact battery, a smaller chassis, core components that are optimized to the sensor size, and consolidated circuit boards for fewer overall parts. As a result, the Kiss Digital N realizes the smallest and lightest body in the EOS digital SLR camera series, measuring just 126.5 (w) x 94.2 (h) x 64.0 mm (d) and weighing a mere 485 grams, distinguishing the model as the world’s lightest digital SLR camera*2. Even when fitted with the new Canon EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II USM zoom lens and the compact, lightweight battery pack NB-2LH, the EOS Kiss Digital N realizes an outstandingly portable system that weighs just 715 grams.
The new EOS camera offers users a choice of stylish body colors*3 –Titanium Silver and Satin Black–and can be used with a range of EOS camera accessories, including Speedlite and Macrolite flashes. A dedicated battery grip, the Battery Grip BG-E3, is also available for the model to allow long periods of continuous shooting using up to two NB-2LH batteries or AA batteries.
