AF Working Range: EV -1 to 18 at ISO 100.
AF Auxiliary Light: Specified Canon Speedlites automatically project light through an ultra-bright LED (peak sensitivity: 700nm) when required.
Light Metering: TTL full aperture metering using SPC (Silicon Photocell). Four metering patterns available:
• Evaluative metering.
• Partial metering (approx. 5.8% of the picture area).
• Spot metering (approx. 2.3% of the picture area).
• Centre-weighted average metering (with Custom function #8).
Metering Range: Evaluative/partial metering: EV 0-20 with f1.4 lens at ISO 100 or equivalent.
Spot metering: EV 2-20 at ISO 100.
• Shutter-Priority AE.
• Aperture-Priority AE.
• Depth-of-Field AE.
• Intelligent Program AE with Variable Shift Function.
• Flash AE (A-TTL and TTL program flash AE with specified Canon Speedlites).
Exposure compensation: +/- 3 steps in 1/3 step increments.
Auto Exposure Bracketing: +/- 3 steps in 1/3 step increments. Three continuous exposures are taken in sequence: one under, one at the standard metered value and one over.
Depth-of-Field Preview: With Depth-of-field check button.
Film Speed Setting: ISO 25-5000; automatically set in 1/3 step increments according to DX code. ISO 6-6400 can also be set manually.
Film Loading: Automatic.
