Type - 35mm focal-plane shutter multi-mode AF SLR camera
Lens Mount - EF mount
AF System - TTL phase detection. AF modes: One-Shot AF and predictive AI Servo AF. When the Full Auto mode is set, subject movement is detected and the AF mode switches automatically between One-Shot AF (for a still subject) and AI Servo AF (for a moving subject). Even in the One-Shot AF mode, focusing is continuous. If the subject starts to move, the Predictive/AI Servo AF mode takes effect automatically. AF operating range at ISO 100: EV 0 - 18. Multi-BASIS (3 focusing points ) for the AF sensor.
Shutter - Vertical-travel, focal-plane electronic shutter. 30 sec. - 1/4000 sec., B. X-sync at 1/125 sec. (hot shoe). Shutter speed can be set in half-stop increments. Built-in electronic self-timer (with blinking LED). Built-in interval timer for intervals from 1 sec. to 23 hr. 59 min. 59 sec. for frames 2 to 36.
Viewfinder - Fixed eye-level pentaprism. 0.74x magnification and 92% coverage. New Laser Matte screen.
Metering & Exposure Control - Composite SPC for TTL full-aperture metering (8-zone evaluative or 8.5% partial at center) with shutter speed-priority AE, aperture-priority AE, depth-of-field AE, shiftable Intelligent program AE, Programmed Image Control modes, bar code mode, and metered manual. AE lock with partial metering enabled. Exposure compensation and autobracketing range of ±5 EV (in 1/2-stop increments). Metering range at ISO 100 and f/1.4: EV 1 - 20. Film speed range: ISO 6 to 6400. Maximum 9 multiple exposures. 15 Custom Functions.
