When shooting your everyday movies or stills in low light, the Image Stabilizer (IS) technology in the EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM is just what you need to compensate for any slight camera shake, helping you capture your moment first time.

Anti-flare technology

Concentrate on the look of your landscape shots without worrying about the sun interfering, thanks to the Super Spectra Coating. This means you don’t have to worry about unwelcome orbs of colour or areas of low contrast, allowing you to shoot more freely and concentrate more on enjoying the view.
