Key:

  • to save space, the "EOS" is left out from Canon model names
  • ISO values include maximum sensor range, even if in manual mode ("H1", "Hi 1" etc.)
  • Continuous shooting: fps is "frames per second", indicates the highest speed for full resolution, without battery grip
  • Memory card types: CF is CompactFlash, SD is Secure Digital
  • Dimensions are rounded to the nearest whole number.
  • Weight: with standard battery unless noted otherwise
