Canon EOS 1100D photos and videos
Compact and lightweight, the Canon EOS 1100D is a highly versatile DSLR that’s easy to carry with you, allowing you to capture any moment in stunning quality. When a scene lends itself to video as well as stills, 720p HD video capture is easily accessible via the dedicated movie function on the mode dial. Never miss a moment of the action as you frame your image easily and accurately through the newly-designed, bright optical viewfinder, offering 95% coverage of the scene. Alternatively, use Live View to see how different shooting modes will affect the final image on the large rear screen.
Canon 1100D Feature Guide
You’ll be able to take great images as soon as you start using the Canon EOS 1100D digital SLR camera. A Feature Guide in the menu system offers a brief description of each key camera setting and its effect, helping beginners to learn about their camera as they use it. Basic+ and Creative Auto remove any confusing technical terms, using plain language to describe settings and their effect on the final image.
Canon EOS 1100D image quality
Apply a different ambience to a scene, with Basic+ adjusting exposure, white balance and image processing settings according to easy-to-understand pre-sets based on the creative intent or lighting type. Alternatively, make your image lighter, darker or blur the background to create more interesting results with Creative Auto, which takes all the confusion out of achieving the desired effect.
Canon EOS 1100D LCD display
The Canon EOS 1100D DSLR camera also makes it easier to shoot and instantly share your images and HD video with friends and family. The large 6.8cm (2.7”) LCD screen features a sharp 230k-dot resolution and wide viewing angle, making it easy to review the day’s shoot immediately. Alternatively, sit back and enjoy the big-screen image playback by connecting the Canon EOS 1100D directly to an HDTV via HDMI, using the TV remote control to scroll through images and enjoy your own high-quality video.
Canon EOS 1100D share pictures online
Thanks to support for Eye-Fi Connected Functions, the Canon EOS 1100D camera users can wirelessly transfer their images to a home PC or bypass this stage completely and upload images and video direct to an online sharing account like the Canon iMAGE Gateway or Flickr - inspiring everyone to share special, fun and creative photography.
12.2 megapixel Canon 1100D SLR
Designed as a user-friendly, powerful, entry-level DSLR, the Canon EOS 1100D features an impressive specification to support the image quality and performance promised by the Canon and EOS brands. A 12.2 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor enables A3 size images to be recorded or cropped for exciting compositions, without compromising on image quality or print size, while DIGIC 4 image processing allows you to freeze the action with high-speed shooting at 3 frames per second.
Canon EOS 1100D low light photography
Low light subjects can be captured with minimal noise and without resorting to using a flash thanks to a sensitive ISO range of 100 - 6400, and the fast, accurate nine-point autofocus (AF) system ensures the subject is in focus no matter where they may stand in the frame. The Canon EOS 1100D also uses the same iFCL metering system developed for the semi-professional Canon EOS 7D, ensuring all subjects are well-exposed, even in the most challenging lighting conditions.
Canon EOS 1100D SLR lenses and accessories
The Canon EOS 1100D will be available with a new addition to Canon’s range of EF lenses. The EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II is a new kit lens that offers EOS 1100D users the flexibility to shoot everything from sweeping landscapes to portraits. A lightweight construction means it’s easy to carry, and Canon’s acclaimed optical Image Stabilization offers a 4-stop advantage to ensure sharp images at maximum zoom and when shooting in low light. The new Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II will succeed the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS in Canon’s current lens portfolio.
