Вид фотоаппарата Сanon EOS 10D

Canon 10D является очень старым представителем камеростроения. Но, несмотря на то, что камера была выпущена в далеком 2003 году, она до сих пор может показать отличное качество изображения, да и сохраняет базовый функционал продвинутой зеркальной камеры.

Первое впечатление от камеры — отлично сидит в руке, имеет ощутимый вес в 790 г, очень хорошо сбита. Рукоятки прорезиненные. Корпус и детали управления очень хорошо сбиты. Лично мне камера Canon 10D понравилась намного больше, чем ее конкурент Nikon D100. Конечно, время берет свое, и у камеры нет многих современных функций, но она по прежнему снимает — а значит сделана с умом и толком, да и надпись Made in Japan радует глаз.

Как обычно, важные моменты, на которые стоит обратить внимание фотографу, при покупке и\или использовании Canon 10D.

  1. Камера поддерживает только объективы Canon EF. Камера не поддерживает объективы для кропнутых матриц EF-S. Это ограничивает выбор объективов, особенно затруднительно подобрать родной супер широкоугольный объектив.

  2. Canon 10D имеет APS-C сенсор с кроп фактором 1.6. Это означает, что угол поля зрения с объективами будет уменьшаться и объектив Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II будет иметь угол зрения эквивалентный углу зрения 80мм (50мм*1.6=80мм) объектива на пленочной камере или на полном кадре. Кто впервые слышит про кроп, это не недостаток камеры, а просто такой тип. К примеру суперская Canon 60D имеет такой же кроп фактор 1.6.

  3. У камеры 6.3MP CMOSсенсор. На данный момент это совсем не много. Но 6.3 мегапикселей вполне достаточно практически для любых фото задач. Да и не в мегапикселях меряется качество — пример этому моя статья Битва Мегапикселей.

  4. Canon 10D имеет 7 точек фокусировки. Вполне достаточно для комфортной работы. Единственно, камера не поддерживает подтверждение фокусировки с мануальными (нечиповаными) объективами, а также 5 точек фокусировки расположены в одну линию, и еще по одной сверху и снизу.

  5. Выдержка от 30 секунд до 1/4000с. Вполне достаточно для любых задач. Более новые модели данной линейки, например Canon 60D, имеют минимальную выдержку в 1/8000.

  6. У камеры всего 1.8 дюймовый дисплей. На нем немного не удобно просматривать снимки. Это дань времени. Такой же дисплей стоит на Nikon D100 с той же эпохи камеростроения. Дисплей отдает сильной синевой и все снимки при просмотре кажутся с неправильным балансом белого.

  7. Короткое понятное меню. Меню мне понравилось. Небольшое, понятное, только все самое важное. Удобная навигация по меню.

    Пример фото на Canon 10D

  8. У Canon 10D отличная эргономика. Может дисплей небольшой, но зато большой селектор. При чем его размеры огромны — потому он очень удобный при вращении по кругу. Для меня это даже важней, нежели огромный дисплей. С помощью кнопок можно быстро изменять ББ, ISO, поправку экспозиции, точку фокусировки. Камера имеет функцию бреккетинга.

    Пример фото на Canon 10D

  9. Дополнительный монохромный дисплейна котором выведена вся самая нужная информация. Наличие дополнительного дисплея трудно переоценить, и это не архаизм, а просто хорошо продуманный функциональный инструмент. У монохромного дисплея имеется желтая подстветка, которая активируется дополнительной кнопкой.

    Пример фото на Canon 10D

  10. Камера Canon 10D умеет замерять экспозицию с любым объективом и даже без него. Этой функции сильно не хватает камерам начального и среднего уровня от Nikon. Это означает, что на камеру можно посадить дешевенький Гелиос-44м-2 и получать просто запредельное качество снимков в полуавтоматическом режиме приоритета диафрагмы. Правда, при работе есть один минус — нет подтверждения наводки на резкость при работе с мануальными объективами, которая есть на системе Nikon. Если нужно подтверждение наводки на резкость, то покупка переходника с встроенным чипом (Одуванчик Лушникова для Canon) поможет в этом.

  11. Камера использует большие CF UDMA, которые позволяеют добиться очень больших скоростей записи\чтения.
  12. Canon 10D имеет буфер на 9 RAW кадров. Это хороший показатель. Мой Nikon D90 имеет буфер на 11 кадров, а прямой конкурент Nikon D100 только 4 кадра. В серийной съемке Canon 10D работает 3 секунды перед тем как начать тормозить. Меня это приятно удивило. Само собой в JPEG можете снимать намного больше, до заполнения буфера.
  13. ISO 100 — 1600, можно увеличить до 3.200, если включить пункт меню ISO Expansion
  14. В фотоаппарате Canon 10D нет русского языка. Кому-то будет не удобно пользоваться.
  15. Canon 10D снимает с максимальной скоростью 3 кадра в секунду. Это не много, но на моей Nikon D40 2.5 кадра в секунду мне хватает полностью для всех задач. У каждого свой стиль съемки, потому отношения к скорострельности у каждого человека тоже разное.

    Пример фотографии на Сanon 10D

  16. Вес RAW файла 5-7МБ. Вес JPEG файла от 1 до 5МБ.
  17. Синхронизация со вспышкой с минимальной выдержкой 1/200. Камера не имеет возможности быстрой синхронизации со вспышками и не умеет управлять вспышками дистанционно.
  18. Камера включается за 2 секунды. Довольно долго. Особенно, когда нужно максимально быстро сделать кадр. Также, при просмотре изображений, камера немного задумывается.
  19. Внизу камеры, там где крепления для штатива имеется крышка под батарейку таблетку. Думаю, батарейка нужна для внутрисистемного таймера. Никогда раньше такого не встречал.
  20. Если и в этой статье Вы дочитали до 20-того пункта и хотите узнать все самые-самые мелки тонкости и поведение камеры, настоятельно рекомендую скачать и прочитать инструкцию к Canon 10D.

Пример фотографии на Сanon 10D

Личное впечатление: у Canon 10D нет обычного мультиселектора с клавишами влево-вправо, довольно непривычно, и чтобы при просмотре изображения перемещаться по выделенной области, нужно менять направления вверх-вниз и влево-вправо дополнительной кнопкой. Видоискатель имеет маленький размер, усложняет наводку на резкость с мануальной оптикой. Зато очень сильно понравилась эргономика в целом, и если бы не маленький дисплей, то я бы не задумываясь отнес камеру к одной из современных Canon 50D, Canon 60D.

Пример фото на Canon 10D

Картинка: всегда помните, что на фотографию больше влияет фотограф, свет, объектив нежели камера. 6.3 мегапиксели дают вполне нормальную картинку. Фотоаппарат почти всегда довольно правильно определяет ББ, цвета отличные. Шумы — да, без них никуда. Камера выдает большие шумы на высоких ISO выше ISO 800. Лично я давно перестал заморачиваться шумами, особенно после того, как провел тест, описанный в статье Битва Мегапикселей. Правда, Canon 10D не всегда правильно угадывает экспозицию, к этому нужно просто привыкнуть и делать нужную поправку при съемке, либо просто снимать в RAW с постобработкой. Понятно, что можно доказать, что картинка с Canon 10D намного хуже современных суперских камер, но Радожива не занимается таким и придерживается мнения, что важно как фотографировать, а не какими средствами. А технику выбирает каждый человек для себя индивидуально.

На сегодняшний день Canon 10D является камерой в наилучшими показателями цена-качество для людей, которые ценят конечный результат, а не миллион фишечек на камере. Я рекомендую камеру для начинающих и даже для продвинутых любителей. Камеру Canon 10D сейчас можно взять на вторычном рынке в районе 300 у.е. Учитывая, что настоящий фотограф покупает объектив, а на сдачу покупает камеру, то Canon 10D один из очень хороших вариантов.

Выводы: Canon 10D очень удобная камера. Подойдет начинающим, любителям и продвинутым любителям фотографии. Подошла бы и профессионалам, но рынок диктует свои условия и старушка Canon 10D уже не может тягаться с наворотами ее современниц. Очень понравилась эргономика, немного расстроила скорость работы.

Canon Powershot D10 - | Cameralabs

The PowerShot D10 is Canon’s first foray into the waterproof camera market. Built around a 12.1 Megapixel sensor, 3x zoom and 2.5in LCD panel, the specifications are pedestrian for a modern compact, though the D10 looks anything but.

Designed from the ground-up for use in extreme environments, the D10 certainly looks the part with faux metallic finishes, rounded corners and an enclosed lens housing. Canon claims it’s water-resistant to depths of 10m.

There are two obvious questions: how does the D10 perform in the water, and can it replace an ordinary compact for everyday use? To find out we took the D10 surfing, paddling and shopping for crustaceans, along with running it through our normal image quality tests. So read on to discover out how the D10 performs in practice, and how it compares with two other compacts designed for use in and around water – the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT1 / TS1 and Olympus TOUGH 8000.

With its rounded corners, enclosed lens housing and corner bayonet mounts, Canon’s waterproof PowerShot D10 looks, appropriately enough, like a miniature submarine. The casing is a little larger than the average compact, but the rounded contours will just allow you to slip it into your trouser pocket; perhaps more importantly, you can comfortably tuck it inside your wetsuit where it will sit comfortably until you need it.

The camera is available in silver with a metallic blue face plate which can be swapped for optional alternatives. It’s also supplied with a wrist strap and mounting post which locks into one of the four bayonet mounts on each corner of the camera body. There are optional straps including a carabiner cord so that you can attach the camera to yourself or your kit.

 
 
 
 
 

The D10 has two doors, both protected with waterproof seals. One on the right side covers the USB and video ports the other provides access to the battery compartment and SD card slot. They’re both quite difficult to open on account of the seal – on other cameras this would be a complaint, but in this case it inspires confidence in its build quality and water-tightness.

Without the battery, the D10 weighs 190 grams. It’s a comfortable camera to hold and shoot with, both in and out of the water and despite, or maybe even because of its unorthodox contours, it feels secure in the hand. The D10 is water-resistant to depths of 10m, has an operating temperature range of -10 to 40 degrees Celsius and is dustproof and shockproof to 1.22m. The operating temperature range of the battery doesn’t match that of the camera and in sub-zero temperatures you might discover that, while the camera is fine, the battery may not function – or at least run dry much more quickly.

 
 
 

The layout of the controls, though familiar to other Canon compacts, makes a few departures for the sake of water-tightness. The top panel features a nice big shutter release button alongside a smaller on/off button. Buttons on the rear above the 2.5in LCD panel provide direct printing (or other user definable functions) mode selection and playback, these last two replacing the usual Canon mode dial.

To the right of the screen are the zoom controls, menu and one-touch buttons for exposure compensation, flash, self timer and macro/focussing arranged in a ring around a central func/set button. Display and Menu buttons complete the set. All the buttons are composed of a grey plastic material, they’re nice and big and clearly labelled, and therefore easy to see and use when you’re in or under water.

The D10’s built-in flash mounted directly above the lens has a maximum range of 3.2 metres. There are four settings – on, off, auto and slow synch and there’s red-eye correction in software that can be applied during shooting or subsequently.

The D10’s 3.7V 1000mAh battery provides sufficient power for 220 shots using the CIPA (Camera and Imaging Products Association) measurement standard. The CIPA standard specifies things like the frequency with which the LCD panel, zoom and flash are used and provides a good guide to how many shots you can expect to get during ‘average’ use. For a waterproof camera, keeping the battery dry is clearly a high priority and the D10’s battery compartment remained bone dry during all of our water-based testing.

Canon PowerShot D10 coverage

6.2-18.6mm at 6.2mm (35mm equivalent)

 

6.2-18.6mm at 18.6mm (105mm equivalent)

The D10’s 3x optical zoom lens has a range of 6.2 to 18.6mm – a 35mm equivalent of 35mm-105mm. The maximum aperture ranges from a respectable f2.8 to f5.9 depending on the lens focal length.

It employs Canon’s optical image stabilization to eliminate or reduce camera shake at slow shutter speeds. The 3x optical zoom range is about the minimum you’d expect to find on a recent compact and is one of the D10’s disappointments. It’s neither wide enough to get a good ultra wide angle shot, nor does it offer a long enough telephoto to get you close to distant action. It does focus reasonably close though, with a macro close-focussing distance of 3cm.

The zoom buttons on the rear of the camera cover the narrow range swiftly, as you’d expect. The journey is reasonably smooth, but not perfectly so, and we managed to jog the lens through six discrete steps.

One impressive thing about the D10 is the speed with which it’s ready for action – less than a second from pressing the on/off button. Because the lens casing is fully enclosed there is no extending barrel – everything happens internally – reducing the potential for damage.

The PowerShot D10 uses an optical system to stabilize the image and avoid camera shake at slow shutter speeds. There are three modes available – continuous, which is on all the time, Shoot only, which activates when you press the shutter release half way and panning which only stabilises the vertical axis and is used when you pan horizontally to follow a moving subject. See the Blurring Action tutorial at our sister site DSLR Tips for an example of how you’d use this.

Canon PowerShot D10: IS off / continuous

100% crop, 6.2-18.6mm at 18.6mm, 1/15, 80 ISO, IS off

 

100% crop, 6.2-18.6mm at 18.6mm, 1/15, 80 ISO, IS on

The two crops above show the same scene shot with the D10 at its maximum zoom of 18.8mm (105mm equivalent) using the same exposure settings. In Program mode at 80 ISO the camera has set a shutter speed and aperture of 1/15th of a second at f4.9. At this focal length you wouldn’t ordinarily expect a shake-free image at speeds slower than 1/100th of a second and the left crop, taken with IS off shows clear evidence of camera shake. The right shot is crisp and clear, demonstrating an effective image stabilization of nearly three stops. Pretty impressive.

 
 
 

The PowerShot D10 has several autofocus modes including face detection. In Face AiAF mode the camera locks onto and tracks up to 9 faces. Canon’s DIGIC 4 processor has improved on the face recognition of earlier models and in good light the D10 does a great of of identifying and tracking faces even when turned almost to full profile.

When faces aren’t detected the camera defaults to nine-area autofocus, selecting elements in the frame from which to obtain a focus lock. Selecting Centre AF restricts the autofocus to the central frame and a menu setting allows the size of this to be reduced to further narrow the focus zone. Servo AF mode allows you to track moving subjects on which a focus lock has been obtained as long as you continue to maintain a half-press of the shutter release.

The PowerShot D10 also has manual focussing mode of sorts. This is activated by pressing the focus button which is also used to select macro, normal and infinity focus from the on-screen menu which then appears. Once manual focus is selected you use the up and down buttons to adjust the focus, using a scale on the left of the screen as a guide; this switches from metres to centimetres as you adjust the focus closer. As a further visual aid, the centre portion of the screen is magnified.

Once you’ve got the focus roughly where you want it, a half-press on the shutter release fine tunes it using the camera’s autofocus technology. It would be more accurate to call it manually assisted focus and, though not what you’d call effortless, it does work.

The Canon PowerShot D10’s 2.5in LCD screen with 230k pixels is one of the clearest and brightest we’ve seen. No LCD panel excels in bright sunlight, but the D10’s did a better job than most on the default brightness setting. This can be adjusted from the settings menu with two brighter (and two darker) positions available.

The screen provides a reasonably good view from side to side, but less so vertically. Having said that, you can see well enough to frame a subject with it held at arms length above your head. It isn’t flush with the camera back, but slightly raised with a ridged edge. During playback the image automatically rotates to provide a full screen view of both landscape and portrait format images.

Pressing the display button in record mode toggles the record mode settings – there are only two options, on and off. In auto mode you see the quality settings, flash mode, battery power indicator recognised scene mode and number of pictures remaining. Program mode adds some other information including ISO, IS mode, metering and shooting mode. The display overlay option in the menu can be set to show a 3:2 aspect ratio guide or a 3×3 grid.

There’s no live histogram, but you can display one during playback by pressing the display button. The histogram view also displays a selection of metadata including exposure settings and date and time. You can turn off all overlay information using the display button, or just display brief image information. There’s also a fourth option which allows you to check focus by displaying a magnified portion of the AF areas.

The D10 provides a variety of options for searching, filtering and playing back photos. Using the zoom buttons you can display and navigate a 3×3 grid of images and pressing the up (exposure compensation button) during playback allows you to jump to or filter images by date, category, or folder or type (i.e. movies or stills). Slideshow playback, accessible from the menu, can be configured for display time, transition and looping and you can apply the same filters to slideshow images as during normal playback.

The PowerShot D10 employs the usual Canon compact system of separate menus for recording and playback functions accessed from the same button. The menus are navigated using four direction buttons which double up as single-click selectors for exposure compensation, flash mode, self-timer options and macro/focussing, with a func.set button in the centre.

The capture menu is split across two tabs; one for shooting settings including AF, IS, Flash, display overlay and blink detection, the other for camera settings including card formatting, LCD brightness, power saving and date and time setup.

Pressing the func.set button displays a quick menu that, in Program mode, provides access to ISO, white balance, colour presets metering, continuous shooting, and image size and quality options. In Auto mode you’re restricted to just the image size and quality settings. The dual-level menu system and function button approach works well in most circumstances, and the D10’s logical layout and clear labels make for easy operation even in difficult conditions.

Exposure options are determined by the shooting mode with Program offering the widest access to camera settings using the four button and dual menu system described above.

Auto mode features Canon’s new automatic scene detection which refines exposure calculations on the basis of the subject content. In essence this determines whether there are people in the scene, whether it includes blue skies, whether the subject is backlit , how close the subject is and whether it’s day or night. An icon appears in the top right of the screen to tell you what that camera thinks it’s looking at. Most of the time it’s uncannily accurate, but in the event of it being flummoxed (by a blue wall for example) you can easily switch to Program or scene mode.

If you’re taking photos underwater, it’s recommended you select the underwater scene mode, rather than selecting Auto or Program mode and leaving it to the D10 to figure out that you’ve submerged it. It can’t be that difficult to detect, optically or otherwise, that the camera is underwater and a fail-safe method to automatically switch to underwater scene mode when this happens would be useful.

Other scene modes include stitch assist (for producing panoramas), portrait, landscape, night snapshot, kids & pets, indoor, fireworks and sunset – there are 18 in all including a 3200 high ISO mode which restricts the image size to 1600 x 1200 pixels.

   

The D10 has two movie settings, 640×480 (VGA) pixels and 320×240 pixels, both at 30 frames per second. With the trend for compacts to include an HD video option, this might be a deal-breaker if you plan to do a lot of video recording.

You can shoot continuously in VGA resolution until the 4GB limit, which takes around an hour. Movies are encoded using the H.264 variant of the MPEG-4 codec and saved to the SD card as .mov QuickTime files.

Sadly you can’t optically adjust the zoom while filming, although there’s a digital option if you’re desperate. Here’s an example clip, showing how you can confidently use the camera in and around water, and registered members of Vimeo can download the original file for closer examination here.

The PowerShot D10’s continuous shooting performance is quoted at 1.1 shots per second and this is almost exactly what it achieved in testing. That’s not really fast enough to capture a sports action sequence, but it will give you an improved chance of getting one good shot from a short sequence.

The PowerShot D10 uses Canon’s latest DIGIC 4 processor which along with faster operation, offers some neat features like face self-timer, and i-Contrast tonal range enhancement. It also provides more accurate face recognition and tracking as well as, on this model, blink detection.

At the heart of the PowerShot D10 IS is a 12.1 Megapixel CCD sensor measuring 1/2.3in and delivering images with a maximum resolution of 4000×3000 pixels, that can be printed up to 13.3x10in at 300dpi. There’s the choice of four lower resolutions along with a cropped 16:9 aspect ratio.

Images can be recorded with either Fine or Normal JPEG compression settings, although the SuperFine option of higher-end Canon compacts is missing here; unsurprisingly there’s no RAW option either. Like other Canon compacts, there’s no built-in memory, but depending on your region Canon may supply a small SD card to get you started. You’ll want to replace this with something much larger as soon as possible though.

The sensitivity ranges from 80 to 1600 ISO at full resolution, with a 3200 ISO Scene Preset operating at a greatly reduced resolution of 2 Megapixels.

Canon delivers their most affordable digital SLR yet, the EOS 10D is available now with a suggested list price of just $1,999 ($1500 street.) The EOS 10D is the first digital SLR to offer Canon's exclusive DIGIC Image Processor for maximum camera performance as well as direct connectivity to several Canon Bubble Jet Direct printers and the CP-100 Card Photo Printer. The camera's body, constructed with rigid magnesium alloy covers, houses and protects a number of advanced camera features including a very fast, wide area 7-point autofocus system for precise focusing; 3 frames per second drive speed in 9-frame bursts in either JPEG or simultaneous RAW + JPEG capture settings; an extended ISO range of 100-3200; manual white balance mode; selectable color space options including Adobe RGB and sRGB; a scrollable 10x zoom playback mode; and a Plug and Play USB interface.

The EOS 10D supports EXIF 2.2, DPOF 1.1, FAT32, and Compact Flash Type I and II, and is completely compatible with all EF-series lenses. The EOS 10D incorporates a large-area 6.3 megapixel CMOS sensor designed, developed and manufactured entirely within Canon. This sensor has the same picture area and aspect ratio (3:2) as the EOS D60, but features superior image quality thanks to peripheral circuitry improvements and a refined manufacturing process. A new amplifier circuit boosts the S/N (signal to-noise) ratio to provide an extended sensitivity range from ISO 100 to 3200 and superior noise reduction at all ISO speed settings.

Canon's proprietary DIGIC image processor was developed specifically for use with its line of digital cameras and combines the jobs of image processing and camera function control into one chip. DIGIC (short for Digital Imaging Integrated Circuit) is much faster at image processing than a general purpose CPU. This extra speed makes it possible to incorporate higher quality signal processing algorithms than conventional digital cameras, improve the buffer performance and consumes less battery power. And because it was specifically designed for use in a digital camera, it is also capable of handling nearly every digital camera function including JPEG compression/expansion; memory card control; Auto Exposure; Auto White Balance control and most other camera functions. In the case of the EOS 10D, for example, the number of consecutive frames is 9, compared to 8 in the EOS D60 and the battery life lasts approximately 30 percent longer. These improvements were made possible by the DIGIC Image Processor, not by any improvements in the camera or batteries themselves.

The EOS 10D's advanced 7-point AF system is a major upgrade from the D60's 3-point system, and its speed is as fast or faster than the EOS Elan 7/7E's. The 7 focusing points are conveniently superimposed on the viewfinder, cover a wide area for superb precision, and are manually selectable for a high degree of control. Ideal focus is achieved whether camera orientation is vertical or horizontal, with moving, still or off-center subjects, and even in low light/low contrast situations.

The EOS 10D uses an Intelligent Orientation Sensor to detect whether the camera is positioned horizontally or vertically and uses that information to improve autofocus and exposure metering accuracy and enables the camera to automatically rotate vertical format images during playback. This rotation data is also added to the image file header so compatible software applications such as Canon's File Viewer Utility, ZoomBrowser EX and ImageBrowser read this data and automatically rotate thumbnail images during downloads to accelerate workflow.

When a RAW image is captured, the EOS 10D simultaneously records and stores a JPEG image in the RAW image file. Unlike the EOS D60 where this mode was only possible for the Middle/Fine setting, the JPEG image can be set to any of the six JPEG quality settings on the EOS 10D. In addition to the five preset White Balance modes featured on the EOS D60, the shade setting (approximately 7000K) has been added for a total of nine white balance modes. The EOS 10D also features a Manual color temperature setting accessed directly from the menu with 2800 to 10,000 degrees Kelvin values in 100-degree increments. In the White Balance Bracketing mode, a set of three images is made at the same exposure level while shifting the white balance up to +/- 3 steps in 1-step increments, to render a cooler or warmer color temperature. Each step is equivalent to 5 Mired (Micro-reciprocal degrees).
