Canon cameras have more user-friendly features and the costs of these cameras are affordable too. The EOS 400D is one of that kinds which comes with a EF-S 18-15/3.5-5.6 lens and with the focal length that corresponds to approximately 28-90mm in 35mm format. Its image sensor size is 22.2×14.8mm. The imaging element type is CMOS sensor. It is effective pixels of approx. 10.10 megapixels. EOS 400D canon camera has various dust deletion features such as, sensor cleaning: auto, sensor cleaning: manual and dust delete data appended to image data. The image type is JPEG, RAW(12bit). The color space is sRGB, Adobe RGB. It uses USB port(USB 2.0 Hi-Speed) interface. It offers a variety of white balance settings with six presets and two other options such as auto and custom settings. It has a built-in-pop-up flash with guide number of 13m at ISO 100. The working range of the flash will vary depending on the lens you use and the ISO settings. It uses E-TTL II flash metering system. It has a large 2.5-inch TFT LCD color monitor on the back with approximately 230,000 pixels and improved viewing angle. The shutter speeds are 1/4000 to 30 sec.(1/3 and Â½ stop increments), bulb, X-sync at 1/200 sec. EOS 400D canon camera uses CF card as a storage device and is powered by a Li-Ion battery.
The Pixma iP4500 from Canon is the high quality single-focused inkjet printer that competes with the laser printers in speed and of course when the question of superiority arises. The Pixma iP4500 is covered in the familiar silver and gloss black livery and has more of a square-cut than most recent models. The printer opens up to reveal rear top input and front output trays, with the additional of a second input tray beneath the main body by just pressing a button. Both input trays of the printer can hold upto 300 sheets of varying paper sizes which is a good feature for a personal printer. Another feature is that it is easy to switch between plain and photo paper without engaging in the tedious task of loading and unloading paper each time for printing text and photos. The unique trait is that It can auto-duplex, that is it can print on both sides of the paper irrespective of the tray that is being used. Common physical controls are indicated by icons which make it more easy to understand. Text prints as well as the photo prints are excellent and with the one-picolitre ink-drop size, this printer produces high facet and soft color deviation in photo prints.
Canonâ€™s EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens that integrates high speed USM (ultrasonic motor) with full time manual focusing is the first macro lens in this focal length specially designed for the small (APS-C) size sensors of the 350D, 400D, and 30D cameras. The lens features an IF (internal focus) design so the front element does not rotate and the length of the lens remains constant, regardless of the chosen focus distance. The lens allows full-time manual override in one-shot AF mode, typical for ring-type USM lenses. The minimum focus distance is 0.2m, which results in a maximum magnification of 1;1. The lens uses 52mm thread. There is a provision made for mounting the ET-67B lens hood, although this is an extra. The magnification ratio scale available on the 60mm Macroâ€™s ft/m distance window helps in determining the magnification at which you are shooting. The lens shows light loss at high magnification values, which is common to most macro lenses. It consists of twelve elements in eight groups without any special elements. It features eight circular aperture blades. As common in most macro lenses, a floating system is used in order to achieve a constant performance throughout all focusing distances. The lens is small and compact with a weight of just 335g and a size of 73x70mm. It performs very well though one should consider the restricted number of cameras that it will fit before buying this lens.
