Canon celebrates the 20th anniversary of its top-selling EOS single lens reflex
camera system by announcing the EOS-1D Mark III Digital SLR, the world's
fastest digital SLR camera. At 10 frames per second, the 10.1 megapixel EOS-1D
Mark III digital SLR can fire huge motor-driven bursts of 110 Large JPEGs or
30 RAW files because it employs the new Dual DIGIC III image processor engine,
providing enough computational horsepower to do parallel processing at a rate
unmatched by any other digital SLR. The all-new 10.1 megapixel, APS-H size CMOS
sensor which is designed and manufactured by Canon, is the most light-sensitive
and innovative sensor that Canon has developed to date. It features a new microlens
array and a more efficient pixel structure for ultra-low noise, resulting in
exceptional image quality and an amazing ISO range of 100 to 3200 with extensions
to ISO 50 and a highly usable ISO 6400. Furthermore, Canon today unveils several
new accessories, including the EF-16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Lens and the Speedlite
580EX II Flash.

From the beaches of the eastern seaboard to the Great Plains, and from the wetlands
of the south, to the towering sequoias of the west, America and its pristine parks
have always been hailed as top destination sites for photography enthusiasts and
their families. Canon U.S.A., Inc. and the American Park Network continue to help
define the relationship between photography and the great outdoors with the introduction
of a free photography workshop program on select dates throughout the summer in
Yosemite, Grand Canyon and Yellowstone National Parks. These programs will be
artfully hosted and instructed by a select few of the world renowned Canon Explorer
of Light photographers including Adam Jones and Lewis Kemper, along with other
Canon-selected photographers such as Rob and Ann Simpson. What's more, the
Canon Photography in the Parks Photo Contest returns this year to offer photographers
the chance to display their work and win prizes in the categories of landscape
and wildlife photography in the parks.



From June 1st to September 29th, photographic enthusiasts are encouraged to submit
their favorite photographs from an American park to the Canon Digital Learning
Center. Winning photographs in the categories of landscape and wildlife will win
a trip to the participating parks of their choice, along with a full suite of
Canon photographic equipment. By logging onto the Canon Digital Learning Center
at www.usa.canon.com/dlc,
potential winners will not only have the opportunity to submit their photos, but
can also peruse the Web site to explore the various educational resources that
Canon has to offer for novices and advanced photographers alike.



With the help of the Canon Explorer of Light program, park visitors will have
the opportunity to participate in free daily guided visual photographic journeys.
Additionally, Canon will loan participants top-tier digital camera equipment to
capture those awe-inspiring sights at no additional cost. Aspiring photographers
will learn the tips and tricks to taking great outdoor photos and experience hands-on
training using some of the same equipment that professional photographers use.
Evening programs are also offered, providing visitors the rare opportunity to
spend time with the Explorers of Light, view stunning imagery, ask questions,
and receive prints and a CD of their own photos.

The new 21.1-megapixel, full-frame Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III Digital SLR is said
by the company to be capable of entering the realm of high-fashion and commercial
photo studios where bulkier, medium-format cameras previously reigned. It is
scheduled to begin shipping in November and will have an estimated selling price
of $7,999 (the same price as its predecessor, the 16.7 megapixel EOS-1Ds Mark
II).

Developed and manufactured by Canon specifically for the EOS-1Ds
Mark III Digital SLR, the camera's new full-size 36 x 24 mm CMOS image
sensor offers the highest resolution in its class, and is comprised of approximately
21.1 million effective pixels (5632 x 3750) set at a pitch of 6.4 microns. The
user can select any one of six recording formats ranging from 21.0 megapixels
in Large JPEG or RAW format, 16.6 or 11.0 megapixels in the two medium JPEG
sizes, or 5.2 megapixels in the small JPEG or "sRAW" formats. In
any JPEG format, the user can set one of ten compression rates for each image
size. In sRAW mode, the number of pixels is reduced to one-fourth that of a
standard RAW image and the file size is cut in half, while retaining all of
the flexibility and creative possibilities associated with full-size, traditional
RAW images.
