The new Canon EOS Kiss X5 incorporates a Scene Intelligent Auto feature, which newly brings together five automatic functions-AE (Auto Exposure), AF (Auto Focus), AWB (Auto White Balance), ALO (Auto Lighting Optimizer), and the new Picture Style Auto. Using Canon’s Scene Detection Technology, Scene Intelligent Auto automatically analyzes such information as faces, color, brightness, movement, contrast and distance, and applies the optimal settings to deliver effortless shooting in various situations, including nature and outdoor settings, portraits, and evening conditions.
The new X5, the first EOS Kiss model to include a 3.0-inch 1.04-million dot Vari-Angle Clear View LCD monitor with a 3:2 aspect ratio, enables users to easily view the monitor while shooting at high or low angles. Building on the popularity of the EOS Movie feature offered in the previous model, the new Kiss camera offers further improvements in Full HD video recording capabilities. Allowing users to not only enjoy video capture, but also the viewing and sharing of movies, the X5 is the first in the EOS series to offer a Video Snapshot mode enabling the capture of movie clips 2, 4 or 8 seconds in length, which can be synced with background music during playback. Furthermore, a movie crop function, also a popular feature offered in the previous model, has been improved to deliver recording within a central area of the sensor at an equivalent of approximately 3x to 10x magnification.
The Canon Kiss X5 is equipped with an approximately 18.0-million effective pixel APS-C size (approx. 22.3 x 14.9 mm) CMOS sensor and Canon’s proprietary high-performance DIGIC 4 image processor to deliver high image quality with reduced noise. Additionally, the new camera offers a range of expression-enhancing features, including Basic + Function, which enables the adjustment of an image’s “atmosphere” by allowing users to apply such settings as “light and soft” or “sharp and vivid.”
