Canon EOS Digital Cameras Overview

Canon EOS models are Canon’s line of SLR cameras, which span a wide range from inexpensive but highly capable entry-level models to some of the most sophisticated professional SLRs on the market.

Canon EOS models are high-end cameras which can take great photos and record HD videos. Canon EOS recorded videos are in H.264 MOV or AVCHD MTS/M2TS file format. But it is regrettable that both the H.264 and AVCHD are not the preferred format for FCP 6/7/X.
