introduced 1989 - discontinued 1992

'RT' is for 'real time'. A fixed semi-translucent reflex mirror eliminates viewfinder blackout during exposure. A reduced shutter release delay gives an exposure closer to the time you press the shutter button. Focus, Autumn 1989, page 9

Type and major components
Type: 35mm focal plane shutter SLR (single-lens reflex) camera with autofocus, auto exposure and built-in motor drive.
Lens Mount: Canon EF Mount (electronic signal transfer system).
Usable Lenses: Canon EF lenses.
Viewfinder: Fixed eye-level pentaprism. Gives 94% vertical and horizontal coverage of actual picture area and 0.8x magnification with 50mm lens at infinity.
Eyepoint: 19.3mm.
Dioptric Adjustment: Built-in eyepiece is adjusted to standard -1 diopter.
Focusing Screen: New laser-matte screen with AF frame. Six optional interchangeable screens are available.
Mirror: Fixed half mirror using pellicle mirror (reflection: transparency = 35:65).
Shutter: Double-shielded, vertical-travel focal plane shutter with soft-touch electromagnetic release.
Shutter Speed: 1/2000-30 sec. and bulb. X-sync is 1/125 sec. Can be set in 1/2 step increments.
Viewfinder Information: Displayed at the bottom of the viewing area.
(1). &-segment LCD digit and character display.
• Shutter speed - flashes at 2 Hz for out-of-coupling range warning.
• Aperture value - flashes at 2 Hz for out-of-coupling range warning.
• Metered manual exposure level - OP, oo, CL.
• Depth-of-field AE - dEP 1, dEP 2.
(2). LCD mask character display.
• * - AE lock indicator in partial metering mode.
• M - Manual exposure indicator.
• ? - Flash charge completion indicator.
• +/- - Exposure compensation indicator.
• ? - AF in-focus indicator (flashes at 6 Hz when AF is not possible).

Autofocus
AF Control System: TTL-SIR (Secondary Image Registration) phase detection type using BASIS (Base-Stored Image Sensor). Two modes available: One-shot and AI Servo with Focus Prediction (cannot be set with the main switch set at ‘RT’). Manual focusing also possible.
AF Working Range: EV1-18 at ISO 100.
AF Auxiliary Light: Specified Speedlites automatically project light through an ultra-bright LED (peak sensitivity: 700nm).

Exposure Control
Light Metering: TTL full aperture metering using SPC (Silicon Photocell). Three metering patterns available: 6-zone evaluative metering, partial metering (approx. 6.5% of the picture area), and centre-weighted average metering (with Custom Function #8).
Metering Range: EV-0.5-20 in normal temperature (conversion with 50mm f1.4 lens at ISO 100).
Shooting Modes:
• Intelligent Program AE with Variable Program Shift Function.
•Depth-of-field AE.
•Shutter-Priority AE.
•Aperture-Priority AE.
• Manual.
• Flash AE (A-TTL program flash AE with specified Canon Speedlites).
Camera Shake Warning: Operates when the main switch is set at ? for Program AE, Aperture-priority AE, and Depth-of-field AE modes. When automatically set the shutter speed falls 0 to 0.5 steps below 1/focal length of the lens in use, the electronic beeper sounds. Beeper can also be cancelled by setting the main switch at ‘A’ or ‘RT’ or with Custom Function #6.
Multiple Exposures: Up to nine exposures can be preset. Automatically clears upon completion.
Exposure Compensation: +/- 5 steps in 1/2 step increments.
Automatic Exposure Bracketing: +/- 5 steps in 1/2 step increments. Three continuous exposure 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 Transport
Film Speed Setting: ISO 25-2500; automatically set in 1/3 step increments according to DX code. ISO 6-6400 can also be set manually.
Film Loading: Automatic (approx. 1 sec.).
Film Wind: Automatic. Two modes available: S (Single Frame) and C (Continuous at up to 5 fps).
Film Rewind: Automatic (approx. 6 sec. with 24 exposure film). Mid-roll rewind also possible.

Power Source
Battery: One 6V lithium battery pack (2CR5). Replaced by removing grip.
Battery Check: By pressing the battery check button.
Shooting Capacity (with 24 exposure film):
Normal (68F/20C), regular shooting 75 rolls, continuous shooting 150 rolls.
Low (-4F/-20C), regular shooting 8 rolls, continuous shooting 15 rolls.

Other
Remote Control: By using Grip GR-20 and Remote Switch 60 T3 (available optionally).
Data Display: In the viewfinder and LCD display panel.
Self-Timer: Electronically controlled with a 10 sec. delay.

Dimensions
Size: 5 13/16” (W) x 4 1/4” (H) x 2 5/8” (D) (148 x108.3 x 67.5mm).
Weight: 23.1oz. (700g) with battery.
