The Canon EOS 10D is a discontinued 6.3-megapixel semi-professional digital SLR camera, initially announced on 27 February 2003. It replaced the EOS D60, which is also a 6.3-megapixel digital SLR camera. It was succeeded by the EOS 20D in August 2004.
The 10D is the last APS-C camera to only be able to mount EF lenses. The 10D was released before Canon made EF-S lenses available. All successive Canon Digital SLR cameras with APS-C sensors can mount the EF-S lenses.
Changes compared to the D60 
Although the sensor remained the same, the 10D incorporated many changes compared to its predecessor.
- 7-point AF system—up from EOS D60's 3-point AF system—that is more sensitive and covers a wider area
- Magnesium alloy body
- New button layout on top and back of camera
- FAT32 support for CompactFlash cards larger than 2 GB in capacity
- A new DIGIC image processor
- Extended ISO film speed range of ISO 100 to ISO 1600, with ISO 3200 available upon activation of a custom function
- Orientation sensor that automatically tags the orientation of the image during capture and subsequently rotates the image to the correct orientation during playback
- Playback magnification up to 10x
- 8 new languages in the Menu system
- Flash strobes instead of a dedicated AF assist lamp
- Compatible with BG-ED3 battery grip.
Firmware Update 
Current Firmware Update is 2.01 (as of 2011-03-17). It is necessary to update to the firmware to enable PICTBRIDGE support on the Canon EOS 10D. PICTBRIDGE allows the printing of images from a camera directly to a printer, without using a personal computer as an intermediary device.
