The Canon EOS500D 15.1 megapixel Digital SLR comes with a powerful EF-S 18-55 IS Zoom Lens, ideal for those wanting to experiment with digital photography.

At the heart of this digital SLR is Canon's potent DIGIC 4 processor, which works alongside the CMOS sensor to deliver you incredibly crisp, clear and clean images, which hold true-to-life colour representation and tonal gradation.

The Canon EOS500D 15.1 megapixel Digital SLR also holds an EOS Integrated Cleaning System, which includes in-camera sensor cleaning, helping to keep your sensor free from dust and dirt. It also holds a 3.4 fps burst rate (up to 9 consecutively in RAW, or 170 in JPEG mode), while the ISO range of 100-3200 ensures you can take stunning shots even in low light conditions.

You can get completely creative in your shots with the included Canon EF-S 18-55 f3.5-5.6 IS Zoom Lens, which has a focal length equal to 29-88mm once the inherent 1.6x crop factor of the 500D camera comes into play.

The lens also has a built-in Image Stabiliser lets you produce sharp and clear shots in low light levels thanks to the 4 stops extra of light.

Don't let awkward angles or obstacles in the way of your shot worry you; with the Canon EOS500D 15.1 megapixel Digital SLR you can use the 3" LCD screen with Live View Mode to get round it.
