The Canon EOS Kiss F was designed with the aim of enabling a wide range of users to experience the enjoyment of SLR photography, as reflected in the “F” in the camera’s product name, which stands for “Family” as well as “Friendly.” The model embodies the development concepts of the EOS series — “speed, ease of use and high image quality,” along with “compact and lightweight” — while pursuing increased levels of user friendliness.

Incorporating an APS-C size (22.2 x 14.8 mm) CMOS sensor with approximately 10.1 million effective pixels and Canon’s exclusive high-performance DIGIC III image processor, the EOS Kiss F delivers high levels of imaging performance and responsiveness. Also, weighing only around 450 grams, it realizes the lightest body in the EOS Digital series camera lineup.

A variety of advanced features contribute to enhanced operation(body only), such as Live View function, which enables users to shoot while verifying image framing and focus in real time on the camera’s LCD monitor, and Auto Lighting Optimizer, which detects dark areas of an image and automatically adjusts brightness and contrast to ensure optimal results. The EOS Kiss F also contributes to improved ease of use through its large control buttons and easy-to-see operating panel indications.

The Canon digital SLR camera incorporates a high-precision 7-point wide-area AF (autofocus) sensor supporting fast and accurate focusing performance, and achieves a continuous shooting speed of approximately 3.0 frames per second with the number of consecutive shots possible in a burst limited only by the capacity of the recording medium.* The EOS Kiss F is compatible with Canon’s extensive lineup of more than 60 EF lenses, including the Image Stabilizer-equipped EF-S18″E5mm f/3.5″E.6 IS, which is included in the camera’s lens kit package.

* Based on Canon testing using a 2GB SD memory card when shooting JPEG images.
