(3)Right of screen: Exposure level scale (±3 stops), exposure level indicator, flash exposure level, frame counter, frame count down indicator.
Enabled with depth-of-field preview button
TTL-AREA-SIR with a CMOS sensor
Area AF with 45 focusing points
Focusing Point Selection
Any one focusing point, 45-point automatic selection, can be registered by pressing the Assist Button and FE lock button. Pressing the Assist Button and focusing point selector switches to the registered focusing point.
1(1) One-Shot AF: Autofocus stops when focus is achieved, resulting in AF lock.(2) AI Servo AF: Tracks subject movement up to the start of exposure. No in-focus indicator (blinks at 8 Hz only if AF fails).(3) Manual focusing: Enabled with the focusing ring when the lens focus mode is set to MF (or M). Electronic manual focusing during continuous shooting and exposure is enabled with PB-E2 and NP-E2.
AF Focus Indictor
Superimposed focusing point in viewfinder and also indicated on LCD panel
AF Working Range
EV 0-18 (at ISO 100)
AF Assist Method
Emitted automatically by the attached EOS Speedlite when necessary.
TTL max. aperture metering with a 21 zone silicon photocell. 1. Evaluative metering (linkable to any point) 2. Partial metering (approx. 8.5% of viewfinder at center) 3. Center spot metering (approx. 2.4% of viewfinder at center) 4. Spot metering (linked to focusing point at approx. 2.4% of viewfinder) * During continuous shooting with metering modes (3) and (4), the first shot is metered in real time and the meter reading is locked (AE lock) for subsequent shots in the same burst. 5. Multi-spot metering (Max. 8 multi-spot metering entries) 6. Center-weighted averaging metering

ISO Film Speed Range
ISO 6-6400 (Set automaticaly with DX-coded film at ISO 25-5000)
1. Auto exposure bracketing (AEB) : +/- 3stops in 1/3 stop increments. Standard exposure, underexposure, and overexposure sequence. Repeated bracketing enabled according to current film advance mode. With self-timer, all three bracketed shots are taken in the continuous shooting mode regardless of the film advance mode. 2. Manual exposure compensation: +/-3 stops in 1/3-stop increments set with the Quick Control Dial or exposure compensation button on the Main Dial. 3. AEB and manual exposure compensation can be set together.
Auto AE Lock: Operates in One-Shot AF mode with evaluative metering when focus is achieved. Manual AE lock: AE lock button activates Ae lock in all metering modes. Multiple exposures: Max 9 multiple exposures. Cancels automatically after all mutiple exposures are taken.(Cancelable and resettable at any time.)
Vertical-travel, focal-plane shutter with all speeds electronically-controlled.
30 to 1/8000 sec. in 1/3-stops, X-sync at 1/250 sec.
Soft-touch electromagnetic release
10-sec. or 2-sec. delay.
Remote control/data transfer terminal with waterproof and dustproof cap provided.

(1) Hot shoe: X-sync direct contacts(2) Right side bottom: PC terminal (threaded)
Automatic. After film is loaded and the back closed, the film advances to frame 1 automatically, taking about 1 sec.
Film Speed Setting
Automatic film advance with built-in motor.(1) EOS-1V: Single-frame and continuous shooting.(2) EOS-1V + Power Drive Booster PB-E2: Single-frame, low-speed continuous, high-speed continuous, and ultra-high speed continuous (w/NP-E2).
At the end of the roll, automatic film rewind with a built-in motor. Midroll rewind possible.High-speed rewind: Approx. 4.5 sec. for 24-ex. film and approx. 8 sec. for 36-ex. film at 59 dBApprox. 12 sec. for 24-ex. film and approx. 18 sec. for 36-ex. film at 49 dB
