The EOS Kiss X9, a compact and lightweight entry-level digital SLR camera that realizes the core concepts of the EOS series—speed, comfort and high image quality. In addition to such standard features as high image quality for stills and video capture, this camera targeting new users boasts enhanced operability and connectivity, and is the world’s lightest APS-C size DSLR1.

When using the optical viewfinder, a feature distinctive of DSLR cameras, users can enjoy up to approximately 5.0 frames-per-second continuous shooting. The camera’s vari-angle touch panel LCD screen facilitates Live View shooting from a variety of different angles and, employing Dual Pixel CMOS AF—an autofocus technology in which each effective pixel on the CMOS sensor is able to perform both phase-difference AF and imaging functions—the camera realizes the world’s fastest AF focusing speed of 0.03 seconds2.

Equipped with the newest DIGIC 7 image processor and an approximately 24.2 million effective pixel APS-C sized CMOS sensor, the EOS Kiss X9 achieves a normal high sensitivity of ISO25600 when shooting still images and a sensitivity of ISO12800 when shooting video, to realize image quality comparable to that of high-end models in a compact and lightweight body designed for entry-level users.

The EOS Kiss X9 can directly connect to such devices as smartphones using Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth® low energy technology3. What’s more, users can browse images on the camera using their mobile device, even when the camera is turned off and placed in a carrying bag4.

1 The EOS Kiss X9 (Black), weighing approximately 453 g; EOS Kiss X9 (Silver), weighing approximately 454 g; and EOS Kiss X9 (White), weighing approximately 456 g; is the world’s lightest digital single-lens reflex camera that incorporates an APS-C size equivalent image sensor and an adjustable LCD monitor (in all cases, weight includes the battery and memory card, as per CIPA guidelines). As of June 28, 2017, based on a Canon Survey.

2 Among interchangeable-lens digital cameras incorporating APS-C size equivalent image sensors with phase-difference detection AF on the image plane. AF speed is the same as that of the EOS Kiss X9i. As of June 28, 2017, based on a Canon survey. Calculated based on the resulting AF speed when measured based on CIPA guidelines (varies depending on shooting conditions and lens used). Internal measurement method. Measurement conditions; Focusing Brightness: EV 12 (room temperature, ISO 100), Shooting mode: M, Lens used: EF-S18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM (at focal length of 55 mm), Live View AF shooting using the shutter button AF method: Live 1-point AF (with Center AF point), AF operation: One-Shot AF.

3 The EOS Kiss X9 is compatible with Bluetooth low energy technology (hereafter “Bluetooth”). The following system requirements must be met for Bluetooth connectivity: For Android, Android 5.0 or later and Bluetooth 4.0 (Bluetooth compatible) or later are required. For iOS, Bluetooth 4.0 (Bluetooth compatible) or later is required (iPhone 4s or later, iPad 3rd generation or later, iPod touch 5th generation or later). Some devices that fulfill the above requirements may not be able to connect via Bluetooth. Without Bluetooth connectivity, although GPS data acquisition is not possible, image transfer and other remote operations will still be possible through Wi-Fi connectivity.

4 Establishing pairing beforehand is required. The material of or other contents within a carrying bag may block radio transmission and cause communication malfunction in some cases. This function is available only if Wi-Fi connection has been established at least once by operating either the EOS Kiss X9 or smartphone alone after the camera and smartphone have been paired. The camera and smartphone need to be connected via Bluetooth. Also, [Enable] should be selected for [Stay conn. if off] in the camera menu in advance.
