Newly developed by Canon, this large CMOS sensor is at the top of its class with 10.1 million effective pixels. A wide ISO speed range and low noise are realized through innovations like redesigned microlenses and enhanced output amp performance. On-chip noise reduction automatically engages when noise is detected (“Auto”), and can be engaged for exposures of 1 sec. or longer (“On”). Also designed for the EOS 400D DIGITAL are new automatic cleaning functions that reduce dust throughout the sensor unit to assure image clarity.

DIGIC II, Canon’s exclusive imaging technology, processes large amounts of data from the APS-C size CMOS sensor at high speed to deliver images of exceptional definition and smooth gradations. Color reproduction is quite natural, false colors are reduced, and white balance is highly precise. This refined imaging system contributes to user-friendly operation in any lighting situation while keeping power consumption minimal.
