introduced 1990 - discontinued 1992
Takes the best features of previous EOS models and combines them in a body which is smaller and lighter than before. Not sold in Japan.
Type and Major Components
Type: 35mm focal plane shutter SLR (single-lens reflex) autofocus/auto exposure camera, with built-in motor drive.
Lens Mount: Canon EF mount (electronic signal transfer system).
Usable Lenses: Canon EF lenses.
Viewfinder: Fixed eye-level pentaprism. Gives 90% vertical and horizontal coverage of actual picture area and 0.75x magnification with 50mm lens at infinity.
Standard Diopter: Adjusted to -1.
Focusing Screen: Fixed, new laser-matte screen with focus mark and partial metering mark.
Shutter: Vertical-travel, focal plane shutter with all speeds electronically controlled.
Shutter Speed: 1/1000-30sec. and bulb. Set in 1/2 stop increments. X-sync is 1/90 sec.
AF Control System: TTL-SIR (Secondary Image Registration) phase detection type using BASIS (Base-Stored Image Sensor). Two modes available: One-shot and AI Focus that automatically switches to One-shot or AI Servo according to subject. Manual focusing also possible.
AF Working Range: EV1-18 at ISO 100.
AF Auxiliary Light: Automatically projected when necessary by the specified Speedlite.
Light Metering: TTL full-aperture metering using an SPC (Silicon Photocell).
Three metering patterns available: 3-zone evaluative metering, partial metering which covers approx. 9.5% of the central picture area and centre-weighted average metering (only when selecting the manual exposure mode).
Metering Range: EV2-20 with 50mm f1.4 lens at ISO 100.
• Green Zone (Intelligent Program AE).
• Programmed Image Control (Portrait, Landscape, Close-up, Sports).
• Intelligent Program AE.
• Shutter-priority AE.
• Aperture-priority AE.
• Metered Manual.
• Depth-of-Field AE.• Flash AE (A-TTL or TTL program flash AE with the flash).
Camera Shake Warning: Operates in Green Zone and Programmed Image Control modes. Shutter speed blinks when automatically-set shutter speed is 0 to 0.5 steps slower than ‘1/focal length of the lens in use’.
Multiple Exposures: Up to nine exposures can be preset. Automatically clears upon completion.
Exposure compensation: +/- 2 stops in 1/2 stop increments.
Film Speed Setting: Automatically set according to DX code (ISO 25-5000) or set by user (ISO 6-6400).
Film Loading: Automatic prewind system. After film positioning and back cover closure, the film automatically winds to the end of the roll and stops.
Film Wind: Automatic. One of two modes is automatically set: Single Frame and continuous (1 fps maximum).
Film Rewind: Automatic rewind at end of roll.
Battery: One 6V lithium battery (2CR5).
Self-Timer: Electronically controlled with a 10 sec. delay.
Size: 5 7/8” (W) x 3 13/16” (H) x 2 11/16” (D). 148 (W) x 99.8 (H) x 68 (D) mm.
Weight:: 14.1 oz. (400g) without battery. 15.5 oz. (440g) with battery.
