Low available light can be one of the most frustrating conditions
in which photographers are forced to work. The lack of contrast
and image definition make it difficult, if not impossible, to bring
your subject into sharp focus. Heavy shadows, dimly lit rooms and
evening shooting schedules often result in soft images, not to mention tired and sore eyes. Beattie Intenscreen bright focusing screens
help eliminate these problems making it easier to get the perfect
shot. Beattie Intenscreens are available for hundreds of the most
popular 35mm cameras with variations, including grid patterns
and split image focus available within each camera model.
In addition, many sports, nature and astro-photographers use
35mm cameras because the wide selection of telephoto lenses make
it easy to get close to the subject. However, longer telephoto lenses,
particularly zoom lenses, often have a smaller maximum aperture making them slow and difficult to focus in low light. A
Beattie Intenscreen bright focusing screen will increase image brightness by 1 to 11⁄2 stops, making it easier to focus on distant
subject, even when using a telephoto lens.

Screen Variations
To accommodate the diverse needs of the photographer, there are several varieties
of Beattie Intenscreen available within each camera product category. Most 35mm
Beattie focusing screens are available with either a plain matte focusing surface or
with split image focusing.
Plain focusing screens, which are similar in appearance to traditional ground glass
screens, offer an unobstructed viewing image and are ideal for outdoor and landscape photography
Plain Matte
Plain Matte
with Grid
Split image focusing screens, situated either horizontally or diagonally, provide
centrally located focus assistance and are a good choice for wedding and portrait
photographers.
In most cases, both plain and split image screens are available with an optional
grid pattern for architectural and other precision photography. The drawings illustrate the six varieties typically offered for most 35mm focusing screens. Not all
styles are available for each camera model.

EOS REBEL SERIES
CAMERAS & LENSES
Want to step-up from a less versatile point-and-shoot camera? The affordable
Rebel GII offers the budget-minded a slew of advanced features and functionality
that make it ideal for students or anybody else who want greater creative control
when taking photographs. Although compact and extremely lightweight (body
weighs only 12 oz.), the Rebel GII incorporates some of the most advanced
features available in an entry-level SLR camera including 11 exposure modes,
3-point autofocus system, Auto Exposure Bracketing (AEB), manual focusing
point selection in the viewfinder and settings for multiple exposures and other creative
effects. Additional features include a Night Scene mode which combines the perfect balance
between natural light and flash for stunning portraits, a bright viewfinder, metered manual for creative exposure flexibility, AE
Lock, a retractable flash with red-eye reduction and a beeper for focus confirmation. It is fully compatible with the complete line
of Canon EF lenses, as well as a wide variety of EOS system accessories including a remote controller, a battery grip, close-up
accessories and a comprehensive line-up of EX-Series Speedlites, featuring the versatile E-TTL flash exposure metering system.
10
Rebel GII—SLR Simplicity and Elegance
Rebel K2—SLR Excitement and Performance
A step-up from (and a step quicker than) than the entry level EOS Rebel GII, the Rebel K2
features Canon's premier 7-point wide area AF system and 35-zone AF-linked
evaluative metering that optimizes exposure accuracy. Fast autofocus and film
advance permit you to shoot at 1.5 frames per second, 50 percent faster than the GII.
Tracking and keeping moving subjects in focus is a breeze thanks to the Rebel K2’s AI
Servo AF mode and seven point selectable autofocus system. Users can also opt for
manual focusing point selection by simply pressing the Focusing Point Selector and
rotating the main dial until the preferred focus point is indicated below the picture
area in the viewfinder data display, or on the large, easy-to-read LCD data panel on
the back of the camera. In the Full Auto and Programmed Image Control modes, the
built-in flash pops up and fires automatically in low-light or backlit situations.
Rebel T2—The Next Generation SLR
The Rebel T2 steps up with a stainless steel lens mount fully compatible with
all EF-series lenses; an AF tracking speed rivaling Canon’s professional Elan
and EOS-3 cameras; and up to 3 frames-per-second film advance. It boasts a
maximum shutter speed of 1/4000 second and X-sync at 1/125 sec. It also
offers E-TTL II autoflash metering for both the built-in flash and external
EX-series Speedlites, a shutter lock that prevents shooting if there is no film in
the camera, and an anti-shake warning if the shutter speed is too low for
hand-held photography according to the focal length of the lens. Finally, the
Rebel T2 features user-selectable custom functions that let you tailor specific
camera features according to personal preferences.

CANON
EOS REBEL SERIES
High Performance AF
– One-Shot AF lets you lock in autofocus on
the subject. You can then relax and reframe
if necessary.
– Predictive AI Servo AF mode lets you shoot
moving subjects with confidence, knowing
you can count on sharp focus. When a subject’s movement is detected, the cameras
track it and calculate the correct exposure
with a high degree of precision.
Shooting Modes
The Command Dial makes selecting any exposure mode fast and effortless. You can
use the dial to set either Creative Image Control Modes or Programmed Image
Control Modes. This allows even novice photographers to handle a full range of
shooting situations quickly and confidently.
Programmed Image Control Modes
Canon’s Programmed Image Control Modes automatically deliver the optimum aperture,
shutter speed and other functions for typical shooting environments. Designed primarily
for beginners, they optimize results in popular applications such as portraits, landscapes,
close-ups, sports, and night scenes. Simply select the mode from the Command Dial that
fits the scene and Rebel handles the rest.
Portrait: By setting a larger aperture, this
mode keeps the foreground in sharp focus
while artistically blurring the background to
create a dramatic portrait.
– The T2 lets you select AF modes independently. A four-position keypad on the
back of the camera also makes autofocus
point selection more intuitive and faster.
Night Scene: By the reducing the shutter
speed and firing the flash, this mode produces “after dark” shots with brightly lit
subjects and softly glowing backgrounds.
Creative Controls
◆ Want
to recompose a picture after fixing
focus. Or want to determine exposure separately from focus. AE Lock is the answer.
By pressing the AE Lock button, the exposure is precisely set and stored in memory.
This lets you achieve superb exposure control even in difficult lighting situations.
◆
◆
Multiple Exposure Control lets you place
up to 9 images in a single frame to create
special effect images, capture progressive
motion, or produce surrealistic creative
compositions.
Auto Exposure Bracketing automatically
shoots three consecutive exposures —one
underexposed, one overexposed and one
correct—in a customizable range of 0 to
±2 stops in 1/2-stop increments.
◆ The T2 features custom functions allow-
ing you to tailor the camera to your preference. These include adjustable selftimer (2- or 10-seconds), emit built-in AF
assist beam (on/off), shutter speed curtain with built-in flash and external
Speedlites and flash sync in AV mode.
Sports: A faster shutter speed and predictive AI Servo to AF freezes motion to give
you impressive action shots with ease.
Full Auto: Never worry again about missing
a shot. Simply frame the subject and press
the shutter button. The Rebel automatically
meters the scene, sets the right combination
of aperture and shutter speed and even fires
a flash, when needed.
All three Rebel models have a built-in motor winder for fast, silent continuous film
advance. They differ only in speed: One frame per second (fps) on the Rebel GII, up to
1.5 fps on the Rebel K2, and up to 3 fps on the Rebel T2.
Creative Image Control Modes
Canon’s Creative Image Control Modes automatically deliver the optimum aperture, shutter
speed and other functions when you are ready to be more creative. Simply select the mode
from the Command Dial that fits the scene and Rebel handles the rest.
Auto Depth-of-Field AE (A-DEP): This
setting automatically chooses an aperture
and focus point that brings the entire scene
into razor-sharp focus—from foreground
to background. (The T2 also includes a
dedicated depth-of-field preview button
that allows you to see exactly what you have
in focus before you take your shot. )
Intelligent Program AE (P): In this mode,
the camera sets the optimal combination of
aperture and shutter speed based on the
focal length in use. With a turn of the
Main Dial, you can use different speed/
aperture values for greater creative control
while keeping the same exposure level.
Shutter Priority AE: Set the shutter speed
(up to 1/2000 sec. or 1/4000 on the T2) and
the cameras will set the correct aperture.
Startling effects like freezing action or creating a creative blur are simple to achieve.
Aperture Priority AE: You set the aperture
and they automatically choose the correct
shutter speed.
Manual Control: In this mode you have
complete creative control over both shutter
speed and aperture settings. Any combination of shutter speed and aperture can be
set. There is also the option of activating or
overriding the Rebel’s exposure metering
systems.

– Advanced AI Focus AF system enable them
to automatically switch from One-Shot AF
to AI Servo AF when they detect a subject
in motion (in Creative Image mode.
Landscape: By stopping down the lens, this
mode produces the precise depth-of-field
that keeps everything in the scene sharp and
crisply focused.
Close-up: In Close-up, partial metering is
engaged to make the primary subject “pop
out” against the background.
CAMERAS & LENSES
With the Rebel series, the focus is on speed,
accuracy, and flexibility! 7-focusing points
(3 points for the GII) cover a wider area.
Each can detect whether the subject is moving or still, and instantly adjusts autofocus to
match. There are no surprises with off-center
subjects or areas with multiple focusing
points, as all selected points are clearly and
brightly highlighted in the viewfinder.

They offer a built-in flash with TTL control, red-eye reduction,
and Off mode which disables the flash as well as an attached
Speedlite. On the K2 and T2 in most modes, the flash automatically pops up when needed.
◆ They work with EX-series Speedlites for sophisticated E-TTL
flash metering (E-TTL on the Rebel T2) and enhanced flash
performance. FE-Lock reads and briefly stores AF and metering
information to give you more leeway in composing a shot, and
high-speed sync allows them to synchronize the Speedlite with very fast shutter speeds to create impressive freeze-frames or enable the use of a wide aperture for shallow depth-of-field.

FEATURES
Fast AF Performance
Superior Metering
It’s never been so easy to achieve perfect focus so quickly. A perfect choice for sports and
wildlife photographers, the EOS ELAN 7N/7NE shares much of the AF technology found in
Canon’s EOS-1v and EOS 3. This high-speed focus can track quickly moving objects with great
precision, allowing you to shoot up to 3.5 fps in AI Servo AF, or 4 fps in One-Shot AF mode. So
whether your subjects are moving or stationary, the EOS ELAN 7N/7NE easily has the fastest AF
in its class. And with AI Servo, One Shot and AI Focus modes, the AF system can adapt to any
situation.
The ELAN 7N/7NE feature a 35-zone
metering system, which is then linked to the
camera's focusing points. To assure the
highest level of contrast and clarity, Canon’s
AIM (Advanced Integrated Metering) system
integrates evaluative metering and focus
information. But whether using automated
35-zone, partial-area, or center-weighted
metering, the ELAN 7N/7NE assures that
your exposures come out just right.
AI Servo AF lets you capture fast moving subjects. The camera follows the subject continuously
until the shutter is released, continuously adjusting focus for sharp results, at speeds rivaling
many professional SLRs.
One-Shot AF is suited to portrait or still life photography. Once composition is determined, one
of the camera’s seven focusing sensors quickly focuses on the subject. Unlike cameras with fewer
focusing points, the ELAN 7N/7NE allows off-center subjects to be in sharp focus without the
need to recompose the image.
AI Focus offers control in any situation. In this mode, the ELAN 7N/7NE detects if there is
subject movement. Then, it automatically selects AI Servo Focus or One-Shot AF as the shooting
situation requires.
7-Point Wide-Area AF
◆
◆
The ELAN 7N/7NE’s 7-point Wide-Area Autofocus
provides a new level of speed and accuracy in AF. Seven
focusing points are arranged in a cross pattern with a
central “cross-type” sensor. This wide area makes it possible
for sharp focus to be achieved instantly–even when the
subject is off-center– without the need to recompose the
shot. Vertically or horizontally, with stationary or moving
objects, in low light and even with low contrast, 7-point
Wide-Area AF delivers razor-sharp images.
The ELAN 7N/7NE’s Focusing Point Selection Keys represent a bold innovation in speed
and versatility. Designed for easy and fast action, these keys enable the photographer to
immediately select any one of the seven focusing points simply by pressing a button. It’s simple,
intuitive and remarkably fast.

35-zone Evaluative Metering:
The ELAN 7N/7NE uses Canon’s advanced
35-zone Evaluative Metering for fast,
accurate control of shooting environments
that combine light and shadow or strong
backlight. Precise metering is assured
whether shooting in vertical or horizontal
positions.
Partial-Area Metering:
Partial metering measures 10% of the
viewfinder at the center or around the
chosen focusing point to provide pinpoint
accuracy when metering shadows, highlights
or subjects against very bright or dark
backgrounds.
Center-Weighted Metering:
With center-weighted metering, the ELAN
7N/7NE measures the entire scene while
placing greater emphasis on what appears in
the center of the frame. It is often the chosen
method of experienced photographers.

Enhanced Functions
AE Lock make it possible to meter and
“lock in” and exposure setting based on a
specific element of the composition, and
then to recompose the shot for greater
freedom of expression.
◆
AEB (Auto Exposure Bracketing) lets you
select the degree of under or overexposure
in the bracketing sequence–from 1/2 to 2
full stops in in 1/2 stop increments. The
camera then automatically fires three shots
in rapid succession (the first at proper
exposure, the next two at the selected
increment of under and overexposure),
ensuring correct exposure in complex
lighting situations.

Multiple Exposure Control (ME) allows
the creation of dazzling, surreal effects by
recording up to nine images on a single
frame of film.
Self-timer delays the shutter for ten
seconds to allow the photographer to enter
the composition, or to minimize shake for
slow exposures.
Canon’s Whisper Drive quiet film
transport technology minimizes film
advance noise, even when shooting in
continuous mode, making the ELAN
7N/7NE the quietest EOS on the market!
The viewfinder has a built-in dioptric
adjustment from -2.5 to +0.5. Adjustments
can be made conveniently without
removing the camera’s attached eyecup.
Use the ELAN 7NE’s exclusive Eye Controlled Focus for
instant, intuitive AF in almost any situation. Designed
by Canon to link eye movement with the seven AF
points, the Eye Control focus system tracks the glance
of the eye, integrating composition and focus into
one uninterrupted step. Canon’s fastest Eye Control
system to date, it works whether the camera is oriented
horizontally or vertically. This high-speed, advanced
Eye Control system distinguishes the ELAN 7NE from every other camera in its class.

E-TTL Wireless Flash
E-TTL Wireless enables you to work with
two or more 550EX, 420EX or MR-14EX
Speedlites to create dramatic studio quality
lighting effects without the studio. Simply
attach a 550EX, MR-14EX or an ST-E2
Transmitter to the ELAN 7N/7NE and
position the other Speedlites around your
subject. You can use an unlimited number of
Speedlite 550EX or 420EX (slave units) to
achieve precise main, fill and background
lighting. When you shoot, the on-camera
Speedlite or Speedlite Transmitter functions
as the master unit and transmits wireless signals to the slave units. To achieve your effect,
the master unit’s flash (550EX or MR-14EX
only) can be disabled, however even when
disabled it can still transmit wireless signals
to the slave units for complete versatility.
The ST-E2 Speedlite Transmitter is a
compact master control device for a wireless
Speedlite flash system. This dedicated transmitter controls up to 3 groups of Canon
EX-series Speedlites as slave units at distances
of up to 33´ outdoors and up to 50´ indoors.
Its shoe lock lever and locking pin provide
easy clip-on mounting.
Built-in Intelligent Flash
Both the ELAN 7N and 7NE have a powerful and convenient built-in flash that pops up and fires automatically in Full-Auto, Portrait, Night Scene and Close-up
modes. Automatic exposure controls set aperture, shutter speed and flash intensity. With range to cover as
wide as a 28mm lens, the flash has a guide number of
42.6 (feet, ISO 100). Using standard off-the-film TTL
flash control, this flash recycles in just two seconds. A
red-eye reduction lamp fires before the flash for more
natural-looking portraits.
E-TTL II Auto Exposure Flash System
The ELAN 7N/7NE go beyond any previous EOS 35mm SLR with Canon’s new distancebased E-TTL II flash metering system. Attach any EX-series Speedlite, and most Canon
EF lenses (must be compatible EF lenses with built-in distance information encoder)
provide distance information to the camera — insuring that direct flash exposures are
more accurate than ever before. Distance-based E-TTL II is especially powerful when
shooting abnormally light or dark subjects.
◆
This “smarter” system compares the ambient light with the reflected pre-flash off the
subject reported in all the metering zones and selects the areas with a small difference
to be weighted for flash exposure calculation. The system also eliminates or under
weights areas with large difference, recognizing them as an extremely reflective object
in the background or as a highly reflective subject, by smartly ensuring it by considering
the distance information data provided from compatible EF lenses.
◆
Similarly, in cases where photographers lock focus and recompose the shot, this revised
E-TTL system prevents over-exposure by considering the flash output level calculated
according to the broader distance information rather than using the single AF point.
◆
Canon’s E-TTL II provides flash performance no other camera in this price category
can match. Shoot flash pictures with full automatic exposure, using FP (hi-speed
sync), up to the camera's top speed 1/4000 of a second. Take 10% partial readings of
flash illumination and lock them into memory with Flash Exposure lock (FEL). Or
use anywhere from one to an unlimited number of 550EX and/or 420EX speedlites
off-camera, and not only have fully automatic exposure control, but even vary flash
ratios over a six-stop range — without ever touching an off-camera flash unit!
EOS System
The ELAN 7N/7NE camera is a perfect entry
into the EOS system, the most comprehensive SLR system available today. There are
more than 50 EF lenses compatible with the
ELAN 7N/NE as well as Canon’s superlative
Speedlites and other accessories.
Canon’s EF lenses are unsurpassed in value
and quality. The choice of professionals and
hobbyists worldwide, Canon EF Lenses are
masterpieces of innovative design and superior optics. Ultrasonic Motor Technology
(USM) offers instant focus, with nearly-silent
operation. Image Stabilizer (IS) lenses eliminate camera shake, enabling you to shoot at
slower speeds, often without a tripod in situations where one might have been warranted.
The EF 28-105mm f/4-5.6 and EF 28-90mm
f/4.5- 5.6 II lenses are perfect companions for
the EOS ELAN 7N/7NE. Their lightweight,
high-quality designs were specially created to
take full advantage of the camera’s unique
features. Both lenses offer virtually silent
operation, enabling you to shoot in environments where silence is essential.

EOS-1V/EOS-3
The EOS-3 represents the cutting edge of autofocus technology. A 45-point autofocus
ellipse dominates the center of the viewfinder, and it is remarkably accurate.
The user can select specific points, as on the EOS-1v, let the
computer decide, or use the eye controlled focus to let the camera detect
eye movement and move the autofocus to where you look. Missing a
split-second off-center decisive moment is almost impossible
The EOS-3 features an area AF system, a high precision focusing system,
higher speed eye-control and improved high-speed focus tracking. Superb
weather-resistance capability, allow it to be used in the worst of conditions. Use Canon’s latest Speedlites at all shutter speeds for fast action or
wide-aperture daylight portraits with fill flash. Finally, the EOS-3’s design
is sturdy with easily accessible controls for quick and easy execution of camera
operations. For convenience, it shares layout design, focusing screens, boosters and
other accessories with other professional EOS models. These technologies combined with compatibility with the extensive
range of EF lenses and accessories, make the EOS-3 the perfect choice for advanced amateurs and professionals alike.
There is no doubt that the history of Canon’s EOS system is the true measure of AF-SLR evolution. Seventeen years have passed
since the birth of the first EOS in 1987. Throughout this time, Canon has relentlessly pursued EOS development based on the
goal of matching system operability and performance to the speed and flexibility of human intellect and physiology. Canon has
developed unique and innovative technologies that share a common objective: making fine photographs easier to take. Canon’s
achievements in camera and lens design, development and manufacturing technologies, in addition to many other areas have set
lofty standards for the entire photographic industry and have also resulted in consistent market leadership.
Canon’s EOS camera’s are the choice of professionals around the world. As the pros
know, Canon sets the standard, consistently redefining photographic excellence
through new technological developments. That’s why Canon’s top SLR has
a “1” in the name. Packed with advanced features and functions, and
with unprecedented operability, the 35mm EOS-1V—the “V” stands
for “vision”—is capable of handling any shooting condition with
flexibility and reliability.
From recording the moments when history is made to capturing
nature in vivid detail, the EOS-1v transforms fleeting moments into
images of visual perfection. With the EOS-1v, you’ll reach a level of
perfection where you, the subject and camera become one.
In developing the EOS-1v, Canon drew on it’s accumulated know-how
and the latest technological innovations to set new creative parameters
to strengthen the connection between intention and execution.
The EOS-1v boasts a level of durability never before possible, along with a 45-Point Area AF for exceptional speed and

45-point Area AF
◆
Each of the 45 focusing points within the Area AF is composed
of horizontal line detection sensors. These sensors operate with
EF lenses having a maximum aperture of f/5.6 or larger. They
are particularly well-suited to focusing on moving subjects.
◆ The central seven points of the Area AF sensor also incorporate
vertical line detection sensors, six of which operate with EF
lenses with maximum apertures of f/2.8 or larger and
theoretically provide focusing precision three times as high as
the vertical sensors.
◆

AI Servo AF
One-Shot AF
(for stationary subjects)
◆ At its simplest level, all 45 focusing points
can be used simultaneously for optimum
auto focus results. Focusing of this kind
has the power to transform a simple
snapshot into a precisely balanced image.
However, the true benefits of 45-point
focusing become more apparent when
applied to more demanding situations.
The design of the Area AF sensor effectively creates seven cross-type
central points capable of unrivaled object recognition and exceptional
accuracy. The central focusing point is capable of cross-type focusing
with EF lenses having a maximum aperture of f/4 or greater, or focusing with horizontal component detection with EF lens/extender combinations having a maximum aperture as small as f/8. The result is an
Area AF sensor system ideally equipped for excellent performance
regardless of subject pattern; a system that brings out the true potential
of Canon EF lenses and lens/extender combinations.

EOS-1v and EOS-3 Exclusive Focusing Features
EOS-1V: Focusing Assist Button
It’s easy to switch to a preselected focusing
point simply by pressing the Assist Button.
When shooting conditions fluctuate, or
fleeting photo opportunities arise, even the
most agile photographer will be hard
pressed to select just the right focusing
point in time. Fortunately, the EOS-1V
allows users to register any focusing point as a home position (HP)
that can be restored from any focus setting, with a single press of the
Assist Button. This extremely handy feature allows photographers to
adapt quickly to almost any situation.

The result of Canon’s pursuit of an AF system that allows continuous shooting ease and
expanded framing freedom, the 45 focusing points are densely packed within an 8 x 15mm
zone and can be manually or automatically selected to meet the needs of the situation. When
multiple points are selected, AF system capabilities are significantly extended. While
photographers have the freedom to frame images through the viewfinder as they choose, the
lens is automatically brought into focus as soon as the active focusing points cover the subject.
Like a human eye, Canon’s 45-point Area AF tracks and aims true. This is typical of Canon’s
state-of-the-art AF technology, recognized by professional photographers everywhere.
The system is comprised of two kinds of sensor elements that are capable of remarkable
focusing efficiency. Because they are able to complement and compensate for each other, they
vastly expands the range of lens/extender combinations with AF capability.

Sophisticated Exposure Control
The EOS-3 and EOS-1v let you capture the light as you see it. Canon’s exclusive AIM (Advanced Integrated Multi-Point
Control) system integrates Area AF and all six metering modes available with the EOS-1v/3. Focus on a subject within the
Area AF ellipse, and they will meter that area for the optimum result where it’s needed most. All six metering modes use the
21-zone evaluative metering sensor. Six metering modes, six program modes and three flash metering modes capture your
vision in all manner of lighting situations.
AUTOMATIC
METERING MODES
21-Zone Evaluative Metering
Offers efficient coverage of the focus area by

of shutter speed and aperture setting. The
program can be shifted easily by means of
the Main/Quick Control Dials. While the
camera remains at an optimum exposure
setting, you can select a combination of
shutter speed and aperture settings
appropriate to the shooting situation.
Depth of-field AE— This mode lets you
manually select two focusing points for
calculating the aperture value. This value
is used for setting the depth of field at a
level that ensures sharp focusing between
the two points. Very helpful for portrait
shots using a telephoto lens.

Bulb—essential for shooting night views,
fireworks or for astronomical photography.
It offers continual exposure for as long as
the shutter button is fully depressed. Bulb
exposure lapse time can be displayed on
the large LCD pane for up to 23 hours, 59
minutes, 59 seconds.

AEB (Auto Exposure Bracketing) allows you to bracket three consecutive frames automatically
up to ±3 stops in 1/3- or 1/2-stop increments. The exposure level changes with each
bracketed frame in the order of correct exposure, underexposure and overexposure. Ideal
when there is complex lighting or using a narrow latitude film.
FLASH METERING MODES
The EOS-3/ EOS-1v live up to their design philosophy of offering perfect connections between
various systems with their two flash metering modes for the advanced E-TTL autoflash mode
and the conventional A-TTL or TTL autoflash modes. The cameras make automatic selection
between the two flash metering modes depending on the system connected to them.
◆
With an E-TTL Speedlite connected, they fire a pre-flash
after metering ambient light, then meter the reflected light
on the subject. The optimal flash rate is determined through
a comparative calculation of the two metered values. The
21-zone metering sensor is used to meter both the ambient
light on the subject and the pre-flash.
◆
3-zone TTL off-the-film plane metering offers automatic
exposure when shooting with A-TTL or TTL Speedlites.
Reflected light on three zones of the film surface is metered
using the TTL sensor. An optimal exposure compensation
value is set for each zone limited to the focusing point, based on the result of this metering.
Partial Metering at Center
In this mode approx. 8.5% of the central image is
metered. The metering area is exceptionally welldefined, which makes it easy to judge the ideal
exposure setting based on the brightness balance
between the subject and the background. Ideal for
those who want to set exposure manually.
MANUAL EXPOSURE MODES
To assist the creative freedom, they have no fully-automated mode that leaves all settings to the
camera. Instead they are equipped with convenient AE modes that let you input your will while
concentrating on your composition.
Center-weighted Average Metering
Meters the brightness of all zones and calculates
exposure from this reading. Metering is weighted:
the farther the area is from the center, the lower
the sensitivity.

EOS-1V/EOS-3
Viewfinder
◆
The exposure compensation scale is
positioned on the right side of the
viewfinder. There is also a flash
compensation scale which makes it possible
to sense and control settings for fine
differences in the balance of exposure
between ambient lighting and your subject.
◆
Below the exposure scales is a double-digit
counter that tracks the number of
exposures taken on the roll of film. Using
the custom functions, it is also possible to
display the film count in reverse order to
count down the remaining shots.
◆
The viewfinder of the EOS-3 offers 97%
visual field coverage and a magnification
ratio of 0.72x. The EOS-1v uses advanced
materials to reduce the curvature of field
and achieves 100% visual field coverage
and a viewfinder ratio of 0.72x—both of
which contribute to clear and easy viewing
of the subject and accurate framing of the
photograph.
E-TTL automatic flash exposure is also possible when an
EX-series Speedlite is mounted. This enables
great pictures to be taken with a flash even
under difficult lighting situations. The
camera is also equipped with a flash exposure
compensation function and a first- and
second-curtain synchronization switching
function, that comes in handy when shooting
a moving object in low light.
Canon’s most advanced flash exposure control system, E-TTL (Evaluative through-the-lens)
is a flash mode that reads through the lens, but not off the focal plane. This method provides
several extra features such as Flash Exposure Lock (a method of spot metering with flash) and
FP flash mode (the ability to use flash at high shutter speeds). Utilizing a preflash fired after
the button has been fully depressed but before the camera’s reflex mirror goes up, E-TTL uses
the camera’s evaluative metering sensor to analyze and compare ambient light exposure
values with illumination reflected from the subject by the preflash. This data is used to
calculate and store the flash output required for optimum exposure of the main subject,
while maintaining a subtle balance between foreground and background.
FE Lock:
Light reflected from the subject by a
pre-flash is measured with partial metering
for optimum flash control. The main
subject can therefore be photographed at
the correct exposure even when a
high-brightness portion exists in the
background. Framing can also be
performed without limitation.
High-speed Synchro Photography:
Attach the Speedlite 550EX and a
high-speed synchro (FP flash) function is
provided. This allows the use of electronic
flash even at high shutter speeds.
Backgrounds can be blurred intentionally
using the high-speed synchro function to
select a large aperture.
FEB (Flash Exposure Bracketing):
Without changing the background
exposure level, the amount of flash
illumination (using the Speedlite 550EX
or Macro Ring Lites MR-14EX and
MT-24EX) falling on the subject can be
automatically changed as follows:
standard, underexposure compensation,
overexposure compensation. The
compensation range is from -3EV to
+3EV, in 1/3 or 1/2 step increments.
E-TTL Multiple Wireless Flash:
By using several 550EX Speedlite flashes,
multiple flash photography, which
normally requires a high level of
sophistication, can be performed in
full-auto mode.
Built-in
Dioptric Correction
◆
E-TTL Wireless
E-TTL Wireless enables you to work with two or more 550EX, 420EX or MR-14EX
Speedlites to create dramatic studio quality lighting effects without the studio. Simply
attach a 550EX, MR-14EX or an ST-E2 Transmitter to the EOS-1v or EOS-3 and
position the other Speedlites around your subject. You can use an unlimited number of
Speedlite 550EX or 420EX (slave units) to achieve precise main, fill and background
lighting. When you shoot, the on-camera Speedlite or Speedlite Transmitter functions as
the master unit and transmits wireless signals to the slave units. To achieve your effect,
the master unit’s flash (550EX or MR-14EX only) can be disabled, however even when
disabled it can still transmit wireless signals to the slave units for complete versatility.
◆
(EOS-1v only)
Eyesight varies slightly over the course of
each day and can also differ on a person’s
physical condition. Thus, the EOS-1v
provides a dioptric correction mechanism
on the viewfinder eyepiece that allows the
phographer to make adjustments
accordingly. Dioptric correction can be
performed within a range of ±2dpt from
the -1dpt default (-1dpt on the EOS-3
also).
When shooting without reference to the
viewfinder, or when utilizing the self-timer,
you can employ the built-in (EOS-1v only)
eyepiece shutter to help prevent incorrect
exposure caused by unwanted incidental
light entering through the viewfinder.

EOS-3
The EOS-3 features continuous shooting of
up to 4.3 fps in One-Shot AF mode and 3.3
fps in AI-Servo AF. Attach the PB-E2 with
AA batteries, the EOS-3 can shoot
continuously at 6 fps in One-Shot AF and 5
fps in AI-Servo AF. Use the PB-E2 with the
NP-E2 NiMH battery pack, and the EOS-3
achieves a maximum speed of 7 fps in
either One-Shot AF or AI-Servo AF.
Active Mirror Control
Canon’s Active Mirror Control method replaces
the conventional approach of suppressing mirror
bound shock from the rear. The ground-breaking mechanism reduces mirror shake, confining it
to a short duration and suppressing the shake
immediately after it occurs. As a result, mirror
blackout time is remarkably reduced. Because the
wave height of mirror shake is low after its
bounce is suppressed, the finder image stabilizes
quickly after the shutter is released in single and
continuous shooting. The user always has a clear
and sharp viewfinder image.
Shutter
Their electronically controlled rotary magnet
shutter eliminate the possibility of operational
trouble. It ensures constant operation that
remains as accurate as its original performance
even after long use and under severe shooting
conditions. The shutter blades are made of carbon fiber and super-duralumin, for high reliability in all shooting conditions over extended use.
This has been confirmed by in-house testing in
which the unit recorded in excess of 150,000
shutter-cycles. The unit performs high-speed
shutter operation with exceptional accuracy at a
maximum shutter speed of 1/8,000 second and a
maximum flash sync speed of 1/250 second.

EOS-1V/EOS-3
EOS-1v CONSTRUCTION
The EOS-1v was built to deliver top performance
regardless of the shooting environment. All parts are
precisely machined. The aperture and hybrid framework
structure which serve as the base for various parts and
fittings are diecast aluminum, with glass-fiber reinforced
polycarbonate resin, which is equal in strength to metal.
The main outside covers are made of magnesium alloy.
The lightweight body benefits from remarkably
improved rigidity, precision, and durability, realized by
the optimum use of carefully chosen high-tech materials.
Following a reassessment of the severity of conditions that may
apply in some shooting situations, Canon has succeeded in raising
the level of water and dust resistance. The 72 major body seams
and moving parts, such as the shutter button, selector buttons and
Main/Quick Control Dials, are carefully sealed with silicone
rubber, and the edges of the back cover are thoroughly finished.
Furthermore, the battery chamber located inside the new grip
GR-E2 is protected by packing, while the insides of function
buttons, found on the upper left of the body, are protected from
dust and water by a silicone rubber boot.
The satisfyingly solid feel and sound of the
back cover being closed will tell you that
the EOS-1v stands up to the elements like
no other camera.
In addition to shielding the moving parts
and major seams in EOS-1v body against
water and dust, complete measures were
taken to secure the lens mount perimeter.
The lens mount is protected by a waterresistant rubber O-ring. When the EOS-1v
is used together with an IS super-telephoto
lens, unrivaled performance is assured in a
wide range of shooting conditions.
EOS-3 CONSTRUCTION
The glass-fiber reinforced
polycarbonate resin body has
die-cast aluminum inserts
around the aperture area while exterior components
are made of lightweight, rigid engineering plastic.
Inner surfaces are coated in copper-plating to provide
electromagnetic shielding. The body package as a
unit is highly shock-resistant and well protected against
noise as befits a camera that houses advanced electronics. In addition, both the front (including the grip) and
rear covers of the PB-E2 Power Drive Booster are made
of magnesium alloy. This tough, lightweight material also acts as an
electronmagnetic shield.
Reinforced Body
Construction
The greatest threats to a
camera that is loaded with
advanced electronics are
exposure to environmental hazards such as rain and/or
dust. The EOS-3 was built to exhibit superior
protection against these threats and thereby provide
the highest level of durability under even the severest
shooting conditions.
All buttons and dials use rubber gaskets to block out
drops of water. And for greater reliability, all the
important electrical contacts are bipolar and goldplated. To protect the heavily-used Main Dial, it too was designed
to repel water away from it.

Rigid, reliable diecast aluminum is used for the lens mount on the
front panel, and for the front mirror unit—areas critical to the
precision of an SLR camera. The EOS-1v’s reliability is heightened
by its diecast aluminum body and a simplified structure that has
no lens driving pin and processes all data electronically.
Magnesium alloy is used for the distinctive top and front covers
of the EOS-1v, and for the outside covers of the PB-E2
Power Booster. The structure encloses the inner
workings with rigid covers, thus increasing internal
strength and protecting system precision as a whole.
Professional cameras must be impervious
to sharp changes in temperature; they
must also be resistant to water, sand and
dust. They must work smoothly under a
wide range of conditions. The EOS-1v has
been developed and manufactured to reflect feedback from
professional photographers who work in severe environments, as
well as Canon’s own expertise in this area.

for Water and
Dust Resistance
CAMERAS & LENSES
The EOS-1v was developed
using the strongest available
body materials for both
functional attractiveness and
high-level rigidity. The
magnesium alloy used for the
EOS-1v is lightweight, yet possesses exceptional strength. Although
hard to machine, Canon uses an advanced injection molding
technology called “thixo-molding” to mold the delicate curved
surfaces of the EOS-1v body. This lightweight body is the perfect
blend of rigidity, durability and total precision.

Custom Functions
◆ Variety
is the spice of life. And even the
same individual’s preference can change
depending on the conditions. This is the
concept photographers desire in a camera.
Ease of operation is an important feature.
However, as long as the camera is used as a
tool, it must respond to the desires of the
photographer. Custom Functions serve to
adapt the EOS-1v and the EOS-3 to your
preference.
—The EOS-3 provides 18 custom functions
that allow fine settings to match the shooting conditions or the user’s preference.
—The EOS-1v features 20 custom functions
that enable the input of 63 detailed
selections and settings. On the EOS-1v,
arbitrary setting of Custom Functions can
be performed either on the camera itself,
or on a personal computer with optional
ES-E1 EOS Link Software installed.
Ease of Operation
◆
They deliver high levels of performance
while maintaining the basic form, operability, and logical dial and switch arrangements of all EOS SLR cameras ever made.
PC Customization (EOS-1v Only)
Designed exclusively for the EOS-1v, the
optional ES-E1 EOS Link Software enables
advanced customization, and management
of shooting data, through
PC connectivity. Simply
link the EOS-1v to a PC
(with EOS Link installed)
via the supplied connecting cable and you
can achieve various forms of customization, function extension and
data download by following messages on the monitor screen. EOS Link
software is comprised of two software applications:
EOS-1v Remote (Personal Function Customization)
Allows advanced Personal Function customization, so the photographer can program the EOS1v to reflect their own personal preferences,
shooting purposes and conditions. Over 30
Personal Functions give even greater customized
control over the EOS-1v than Custom Functions
provide. With the optional EOS Link installed,
you can change, extend and limit the functions
of the EOS-1v. To customize your EOS-1v you
need only to follow the menu and messages appearing on your monitor. EOS Link
enables you to configure your EOS-1v like a custom-made camera.
EOS-1v Memory (Exposure Data Management)
◆
◆
Equipped with the optional PB-E2 Power
Drive Booster, the EOS-3 and EOS-1v
deliver the same operability when held in
the vertical position as in the horizontal
position.
The EOS-1v and EOS-3 both benefit from
Canon’s commitment to offering unrivaled
performance in all areas of photography.
That means they accept the full range of
EOS system accessories including viewfinder
accessories, such as the focusing screens,
Speedlites, and motor drive accessories.
PHOTO - VIDEO - PRO AUDIO
Intensive management of exposure
data is readily achieved. Use EOS-1v
Memory for downloading up to 25
different types of shooting data from
the camera such as shutter speed and
aperture, date, time and more with
each frame of film Values are automatically saved in the
camera's memory each time the shutter is released. At the same
time, an arbitrary two-digit number and an auto-incrementing
three-digit ID number are automatically imprinted on the film
leader. This means the film and shooting data can be matched.
The storage capacity of the built-in memory varies depending on the number of
items to be recorded. In general, data can be saved for 50 to 200 rolls of film with 36
exposures, with data for 100 rolls being recorded in the standard setting.
If all shooting data is input to a PC via the EOS Link software it can be managed
intensively for reading and editing. If scanned images are attached as thumbnails to
the shooting data, the arrangement and searching of data can be performed more
quickly and efficiently. This software thus enables users to manage film data effectively.

CAMERAS & LENSES
EF LENSES
EF lenses fuse state-of-the-art
electronics with mechanical precision,
and optical excellence. The fully
electronic EF lens mount is unique
among 35mm SLR cameras, operating
silently with unmatched reliability
due to the complete elimination of
mechanical couplings. Every EF
lens contains its own custom-designed
autofocus motor and microprocessor.
Many utilize Canon’s exclusive
Ultrasonic Motor (USM) technology.
Canon is also a leader in the use of aspherical lens elements, flourite crystal, Ultra-low dispersion (UD) glass and other
advanced optical technologies. Uniformly high optical performance results from the extensive use of exclusive Canon-developed
manufacturing techniques in Canon’s own factories, the world’s largest for 35mm cameras and lenses.
Fully Electronic Mount System
Inner and Rear Focusing
In designing the EF lens mount, Canon engineers
gave a lot more than just a way to quickly attach a
lens to a camera body. The fully electronic mount
system has none of the shock, operational noise,
abrasion, slow response or design restrictions
related to linkage mechanisms used to transfer
data. Instead, about 50 items of information are
exchanged as digital signals between the lens and
camera in real time. This enables high-speed and
precision control as well as improved reliability.
An inner focusing lens has the focusing lens group(s) in front of the diaphragm, while a
rear focusing lens has the focusing lens group(s) behind. Both systems allow the focusing
lens group to be small. This minimizes the load on the actuator which drives the
autofocus. In turn, the AF speed is faster. The whole optical system can also be made
more compact. And, since the lens doesn’t rotate during focusing, the effects of a circular
polarizer or gel filter remain intact.
◆
Quiet, high-speed, high-precision AF from
fisheye to super telephoto since the optimum
actuator can be incorporated into each lens.
◆
Quiet, high-precision aperture, or digital
diaphragm control.
Floating System
Ordinary lenses (non-zoom) are designed to give the best results when the correction of
aberrations is most effective. This is usually at the most commonly-used focusing
distances. At other focusing distances especially at the closest focusing distance,
aberrations tend to appear. Canon’s floating system suppresses aberrations at close
focusing distances. The system adjusts the gap between certain lens elements in
correspondence to the focusing distance, effectively correcting the aberration. The result is
high image quality with aberrations suppressed at all focusing distances.
◆ Allows
the aperture to be stopped down to preview depth of field and helps increase shooting
speed by keeping the aperture stopped down
during continuous shooting sequences.
◆
Permits fully automatic diaphragm control with
Canon tilt-shift TS-E lenses.
◆
Using variable-aperture zoom lenses, any manually set f/stop (except for maximum aperture) is
maintained throughout the zoom range.
◆ Automatic
compensation and display of the
change in the lens’ effective F-number when an
extender is mounted between lens and camera.
◆
Self-test system using the lens’ built-in microcomputer warns of malfunctions through the
camera’s LCD to help ensure high reliability.
PHOTO - VIDEO - PRO AUDIO
Built-In Motor and EMD
EF lenses have a built-in AF motor for driving energy with lower transmission loss. The
lenses also have an EMD (Electromagnetic Diaphragm) to electronically control the aperture with unmatched precision. The aperture can be set either with an electronic dial or
with the electronic pulse signal sent according to the exposure reading.
Full-Time Manual Focusing
EF lenses have very high AF precision, quickly achieving optimum focus in almost any
shooting situation. Most are also equipped with Canon’s full-time manual focusing mode
to make picture-taking even more flexible. Lenses with this feature let you switch to manual while in AF mode—overriding the autofocus mode. You can keep looking through the
viewfinder and touch up the focus manually without switching the focus mode switch.
Two type of manual focusing: Electronic manual where the rotation amount of the focusing ring is detected and the focusing motor is driven electronically. Or, mechanical focusing, where the rotation of the focusing ring adjusts the focus mechanically.

L-Series Lenses
Canon lenses are renowned for their
performance and optical quality. And no lenses have a better reputation among
professional photographers
than Canon’s L-series lenses.
Identifiable by a distinctive red
ring around their outer barrel,
these lenses use special optical
technologies including Ultra-low Dispersion UD glass, Super Low
Dispersion glass, Fluorite and Aspherical elements to truly push the
optical envelope.
L-series telephoto lenses utilize Canon’s UD glass to minimize the
effect of chromatic aberration, sometimes called color fringing. UD
glass provides outstanding contrast and sharpness in lenses like the
70-200 f/2.8L IS and 300mm f/4.0L IS. Even more effective are
fluorite elements, used in high-end super-telephoto lenses like the
EF 300mm f/2.8L IS and 400mm f/2.8L IS. A single fluorite element
has the corrective power of two UD glass elements, which gives these
L-series lenses their spectacular performance.
Wide-angle lenses and fast normal focal-length lenses often suffer
from another optical problem, spherical aberration, which causes an
overall softening and optical “smearing” of the image. Canon has
developed four different manufacturing technologies to produce
Aspherical lens elements, which combat this problem. Aspherical
optics, which have an extremely precise variable curvature of one or
both sides of a lens element, also allow more compact lens designs and
permit lighter lenses with fewer elements. Combined with Canon’s
exclusive multi-coating technology, Super Spectra Coating, and the
attention paid to details such as anti-reflective material inside of lens
barrels, L-series lenses virtually eliminate internal ghosting and flare.
Many EF telephoto lenses are white, to reduce the amount of internal
heat build-up during long shooting in bright sunlight. And the new
Image Stabilized super-telephoto L-series lenses add extensive
dust-and moisture-resistant seals and gaskets, enabling pros to keep
shooting in the worst conditions.
Canon L-series EF lenses are designed and built to meet the needs of
the most demanding professional photographers. Their superb
optics enable pros and advanced amateurs to have lenses that are the
absolute pinnacle of optical performance, and enable lens/speed
combinations with professional performance simply not attainable
using traditional optical technology.

Ultrasonic Motors (USM)
In order to achieve critical autofocus, the elements within a camera lens
have to move quickly, quietly, and with exacting precision. To
accomplish this, Canon developed the world’s first lens-based
Ultrasonic Motor (USM). Based on a totally new technology, the motor
spins by ultrasonic oscillation energy. In effect, instead of a large, noisy
drive-train system, electronic vibrations created by a piezoelectric
ceramic element power the mechanical action of the lens. In a very
broad comparison, it's like the difference between a mechanical watch
with gears and springs and quartz-timed watch movement. Therefore,
torque is constant and start and stop functions virtually instantaneous.
By making the autofocus operation almost inaudible and by accelerating
the autofocus speed, this type of motor greatly expands the shooting
possibilities for Canon photographers. There is virtually no whining
noise as the lens focuses to distract the subject or draw attention to the
photographer. Most important for the photographer in the field, the
motor draws minimal power so the camera batteries last longer.
You’ll find two types of Canon Ultrasonic Motors
in the camera lens system, each optimized for
maximum efficiency and effectiveness. Ring-type
USM-equipped lenses, found in large aperture
and super telephoto designs, allow manual
focusing without switching out of the auto mode.
It’s a direct-drive system that provides all the
Ring-Type USM
above advantages. Micro USM designs bring the
performance benefits of Canon's USM technology
to a wide assortment of affordable EF lenses.
Extremely compact and light, this USM is even
used on lenses as small as the EF 28-90mm and
Micro USM
EF 22-55mm.
Whenever you have an image in mind, you must choose a lens
which can put that image on film. And whatever that image may
be, you can be sure that Canon has the lens you need. Whether it
is a 15mm fisheye or a 600mm super telephoto, all Canon lenses
feature the finest materials (especially the L-series lenses) and
technologies. They include fluorite, UD glass, aspherical lenses,
lens-based Ultrasonic Motors, inner and rear focusing, Image
Stabilizers, and a fully-electronic interface.
CAMERAS & LENSES
Canon has developed a series of truly unique lenses equipped with an
Image Stabilizer (IS) function that let you capture photos that would
otherwise be blurred due to camera movement, greatly expanding the
range of handheld-camera photography.
To get sharp images when taking handheld pictures, the general rule of
thumb is to set the shutter speed to 1/1 over the focal length, or the
closest available setting on your camera. (i.e. 1/60 sec. with a 50mm
lens, 1/250 sec. with a 200mm lens, 1/500 sec. with a 500mm lens and
so on.) Generally, this is no problem, if all your pictures are taken outdoors on a bright, sunny day. But blurred pictures due to camera shake
become more of a problem when taking pictures in dim light - at dusk,
indoors, on a cloudy day. And the chance of getting blurred pictures is
greater when using longer focal length lenses that magnify the image
and any associated movement.
To overcome these problems, Canon developed the world’s first SLR
lens with a built-in image stabilizer. Electronic signals emitted by vibration-detecting gyro sensors are used to move the image-stabilizing lens
group in parallel along the optical axis, providing clear picture quality
at all times. Actual shooting tests result in improvement equivalent to
using a shutter speed two steps faster.
In many shooting situations where photographers are not allowed to
use a tripod or flash, such as art museums and concert halls, Canon IS
lenses are your ticket to sharper pictures.

Standard Lenses
With a natural angle of view and perspective, standard lenses capture the subject plainly, with no special effects.
The result is different from a wide-angle or telephoto lens which is used for more expressive purposes. At the same
time however, you can use standard lenses in creative ways by varying the subject distance, aperture, and angle.
Canon offers two standard EF lenses each with a different maximum aperture.
Portrait and Medium Telephoto Lenses
A medium telephoto lens with a large aperture brings the subject closer, creates excellent background blur, gives a
longer flash range, and affords a faster shutter speed to freeze the action. Best of all, they aren’t too heavy to carry
around—even on a ski slope.
Telephoto Lenses
A telephoto lens is essential to any serious photographer. For sports action, you will need a fast shutter speed and a
long focal length. A large maximum aperture allows a faster shutter speed. If you want a smaller more compact
lens, choose a lens with a smaller maximum aperture.

Understanding Diffractive Optics: Glass lens elements refract, or bend lightwaves as they pass through it to form an image. Canon uses
multiple elements and special glass to keep the lightwaves like a pinpoint instead of spreading them into the rainbow of color you see when
light passes through a prism. To diffract lightwaves means that the ray goes through a change in direction before passing through the lens.
The change in direction is caused by a diffraction grating — very fine parallel groves or slits on the surface. Canon uses two single-layer
diffractive optical elements whose diffraction gratings are bonded together face-to-face. The diffraction that occurs with Multi-Layer
Diffractive optical elements actually corrects the optical system’s chromatic aberrations and improve the image formation performance.
Why is Canon changing the tried and true physics of lens design? In terms of design and manufacture, it allows them to create lenses that
are shorter and lighter than comparable refractive optical systems. The 400mm f/4 DO IS USM lens is approximately 27-percent shorter
and 36-percent lighter in weight than a conventional 400mm f/4 telephoto lens would be. Image quality of Canon’s DO lenses are
comparable to the L-Series, offering photographers very high performance.

TILT & SHIFT LENSES
With a Canon TS-E lens, you can control the angle of the plane of focus and the picture’s perspective.
The effects of large-format camera movements can be obtained with TS-E lenses for EOS cameras.
Although manual focusing is required, automatic aperture control enables auto exposure and auto
exposure bracketing. The tilt and shift axes intersect at a 90° angle. With their tilt and shift
movements, these lenses further expand photographic possibilities. Tilt movements alter the angle of
the plane of focus between the lens and film plane, allowing you to obtain a wide depth of field even
at the maximum aperture and still keep the entire subject in focus. Shift movements move the lens’
optical axis in parallel, correcting the trapezoidal effect seen in pictures taken of tall objects such as
buildings, so that the subject does not look distorted.
Tilt Movements: If you want to bring the
entire length of the hedge into focus, you
could use a wide-angle lens and a small
aperture to obtain a wide depth of field. With
tilt movements, you can achieve this wide
depth of field even at the maximum
aperture. By tilting the center of the TS-E
lens barrel, you can tilt the lens so that the
plane of focus is uniform on the film plane.
Shift Movements: Normally, when you point your camera
up at a tall building, the building will look slimmer toward
the top. It becomes trapezoidal. This perspective effect is
more pronounced with shorter lens focal lengths, distorting
the building even more. By altering the parallel position
between the lens and the film plane with the TS-E lens, this
perspective effect can be corrected. With the camera’s film
plane set parallel to the building, shifting the lens upward
will obtain a more rectangular-looking building.

HIGH-POWER WIDE ANGLE ZOOM LENSES
EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM
(CA2830035IS)
Offering incredible 11x zoom capability, the EF28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM combines Canon’s latest
optical glass, faster autofocus and a groundbreaking Image Stabilization system—so capturing incredible
images is a snap—even when the zoom is at max, the shutter speed is slow and the camera is handheld.
This 22-element L-series design lens features three ultra low dispersion (UD) glass elements that reduce
chromatic aberration, and three aspherical elements that reduce linear distortion and correct spherical
aberration during zooming (keeping image resolution and contrast high), together with superior lens
coatings that minimize reflection. Highly refined Image Stabilization (IS) system with shake-detecting
gyro sensors corrects up to three shutter speed steps for handheld photography. Additionally, IS remains
effective even when using a tripod, improving image quality by eliminating the effects of reflex mirror
vibration at slow shutter speeds. IS mode switches allow you to select for general stabilization or for deliberate panning. IS is activated within 0.5 seconds of depressing the shutter halfway. Additionally, the lens
features a powerful, quick and silent ring-type Ultrasonic Motor and an inner focus system that moves
only the lens’ lighter elements during AF while keeping the front elements stationary.
Because of its extended range, the lens features a push-pull zoom, though it does have a zoom adjustment
ring that lets you loosen, tighten or lock the zoom control. It also permits close minimum focus from 2.3´
at all focal lengths, and is capable of filling the frame with a subject as small as 3.2 x 4.8˝ at the 300mm
setting. The lens includes EW-83G bayonet mount lens hood, detachable tripod collar and soft lens case.

Photo Tip From Rick Sammon:
We all love to travel, and we want to come back from our vacations
with great travel pictures. Our travel agents and on-site guides can
help us maximize our time - seeing what we want to see. But it’s up to
us to maximize our photo opportunities. Perhaps the most important
photo tip for travel photographers is this: “Tell the whole story.” In
other words, take pictures that “create a sense of place.”
“Telling the story” does not necessarily require packing “tons” of lenses
and accessories, which could actually slow you down when you are on
the move. Rather, it’s important to choose your travel gear wisely
(especially with today’s airline restrictions on carry-on bags).
Zoom lenses are great for travelers. Pack a standard or wide-angle
zoom for street scenes and landscapes, and a telephoto zoom for
people pictures, and you’ll come back with a good selection of
pictures. For low light shooting indoors (museums, churches, interiors
of buildings), you want a “fast” (f/2.8) lens, which lets you shoot at a
higher shutter speed than an f/4.5-5.6 lens.

EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM (CA7030045IS)
Compact, without compromising any image quality, the EF70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM is the
second EF lens to employ Diffractive Optics (DO) technology. Indeed, it’s three-layer diffractive
element is far better suited to zoom lenses and improves on the two-layer DO element used in the
EF400mm f/4 DO IS USM lens. Significantly smaller and lighter than conventional 70-300mm
lenses, this zoom is approximately the length and diameter of the 28-135mm IS lens.
Equipped with image stabilization technology, the lens provides up to three stops of effective
shake reduction capability, equivalent to shooting handheld at 1/30 with the stability found on conventional lenses at 1/250. It also offers a choice of general stabilization and deliberate panning. The
IS system remains functional when the lens is used on a solid tripod, although handheld usage is
the norm thanks to its compact size. Compact, shake detection gyro sensors for smoother control
of IS optics, and compact zoom locking mechanism (locks the lens at its smallest 70mm setting
and prevents lens “creeping” while camera is carried on a neck strap) also contribute to the lens’
smaller, more comfortable size.
Incorporates a larger, ring type Ultrasonic Motor that provides more power and torque than the smaller Micro USM for faster autofocusing than equivalent lenses. In addition, a rear-group AF system moves the
lighter and smaller lens elements at the rear of the lens for focus, keeping the larger, front elements from
rotating during AF or zoom operation. Minimum focus is 4.6´ at all zoom settings and can fill the frame
with a subject as small as 4.8 x 7.2˝ at the 300mm zoom setting. Includes a ET-65B lens hood and LP1116

Haze UV-1 Filters
Lens Hoods
A great investment, UV-1 Haze filters will protect your valuable lenses from dust,
moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs. If desired they can be left on the
lens at all times for protection. They also have a very subtle warming effect, which can be
useful to counter the “cool” colors you sometimes get in bright sun or in shade.

These filters are used to produce soft focus effects. A coated
pattern over the filter diffracts some of the light passing
through. Softmat #1 produces a gentle soft focus effect, ideal
for lending a romantic aura to portraits.; Softmat #2 offers a
stronger effect producing a fog-like effect in landscapes. Both
can be used together for stronger effects

Polarizing filters are used to increase subject contrast by controlling reflected light from
non-metallic surfaces. Useful for reducing or eliminating reflections from glass and
water. Will also darken blue skies in some conditions. Simple to use, circular polarizing
filters polarize light circularly, rather than linearly, so it does not interfere with autofocus
or TTL light metering.

Dual-Format (35mm and Panorama) Camera
Sometimes your world doesn’t fit in the frame.
Sometimes you want to think a bit outside the
box. So for all those times when you need a little
something extra, Hasselblad presents the XPan II
– the world’s only truly dual- format 35mm
camera system. The XPan II is a unique camera
that takes great 35mm shots with world-renown
Hasselblad quality and full, medium format
panorama pictures — and both formats can be
mixed in any order on the same roll of 35mm
film. Easy-to-use, simply flick a switch and your
view expands. Switch between standard 35mm
and medium format quality, full panorama as
many times as you wish—with no empty spaces or wasted film. And without sacrificing image quality or lugging around
extra equipment, without changing magazines or cameras, without losing the moment in front of you.
The XPan II features a wide range of convenient, user-friendly features such as automated film loading film transport, TTL
exposure metering, and single or continuous exposure. The shutter release can be triggered by button, mechanically, via a
dedicated remote cable, or self-timer. And being a rangefinder camera, the Xpan II is very silent in operation.
Finally, the outstanding image quality and full panorama effect of the XPan II is made possible by the superb optical quality
of specially designed lenses. These superior, highly compact lenses, are actually medium format lenses, but have the compact
external dimensions of 35mm lenses. Together with the XPan II, they provide the bridge between the image quality of the
medium format and the convenience and economy of the 35mm format.
FEATURES
Maximum Quality—35mm or Panorama
◆
◆
◆
Inside the XPan II’s sleek body lies an ingenious system that allows
you to choose between formats without sacrificing quality along the
way. You get Hasselblad tradition and reliability combined with
35mm convenience. You get razor sharp images combined with a
panorama negative almost three times larger than traditional masking
techniques and over five times larger than those produced by APS
cameras. No compromises, just possibilities.
Behind the simplicity of the XPan II’s exterior is a unique system that
provides medium format image quality on 35mm film. The XPan II
utilizes the entire area of standard 35mm film for either format,
providing a panorama effect without masking the film or reducing
image quality. This specially designed technique gives you the same
superior quality you expect from Hasselblad.
The XPan provides superior quality panorama shots and standard
shots, mixed on the same roll of inexpensive 35mm film. No other
camera in the world can offer the same.
◆
Both of the XPan II’s formats can be mixed freely on the same roll of
35 mm film in any order, with no wasted film. Even when
switching back and forth from regular 35 mm to panorama in
midroll, the camera’s film counter automatically compensates and
shows the number of remaining shots at your current format.
◆
A lot of so-called “panorama” cameras claim to offer panorama mode,
but in reality all they do is crop off the top and bottom of a standard
35 mm frame. When the whole idea behind panorama pictures is
their size, lopping off your negative or slide is really only faking it,
losing image quality as well.
◆
With the XPan II however, a mere turn of a knob expands the standard
35mm image, producing an image just as high but nearly twice as
long. In other words, the XPan II is two cameras in one: a high quality
35mm camera and a true panorama format camera, rolled into one
stylish package. Brings the convenience of the 35mm world and the
image quality of the medium format world together at last.

XPAN II
User-Friendly
◆ While
◆
Film loading and winding is easy. The
camera automatically detects film speed
(programmable auto DX with ISO override) and pre-winds the film onto the camera spool. It then rolls each exposed frame
back into the film cassette. This protects
the exposed film inside even if the camera
is opened by mistake. It also reduces the
risk of camera noise, as film is wound
when you choose to load film, not at the
unexpected end of a roll. And since
rangefinder cameras have no reflex mirror
to make noise when exposing a shot, the
XPan II is virtually silent in operation.
Viewfinder & LCD
The bright-frame viewfinder and coupled
rangefinder make viewing and focusing
easy and intuitive. Viewfinder information
is adjusted automatically, reflecting the format and the focal length of the lens.
◆
An LCD display in the viewfinder shows
shutter speed, exposure compensation, and
symbols for exposure offset. A smaller
LCD display, showing format and number
of exposures remaining, is conveniently
located on the top of the camera.
◆
The LCD on the Xpan II’s rear displays
ISO, shutter speed, exposure compensation, auto bracketing, self-timer delay time,
sync mode, rewind mode, multi exposure,
battery status, and exposure history.
High Performance
◆
Shoot single frame or continuous at up to
three standard or two panorama frames
per second.
◆
Rewind mode can also be set to leave the
film tip exposed for easier extraction and
flash sync can be programmed to trigger at
the beginning or end of exposure.
◆
User functions such as auto bracketing
(three consecutive exposures at 0.5 or 1 EV
increments) with either single or continuous exposure, exposure compensation (±2
EV at 0.5 EV increments), and multi-exposure mode(up to 9 exposures per frame)
can be programmed via the rear display.
A camera as unique as the XPan II requires a
series of lenses as unique as the camera itself.
That’s exactly what Hasselblad offers in the form
of the X-Pan system’s three light, interchangeable, and extremely compact medium format
lenses – the 30mm f/5.6, 45mm f/4 and 90mm
f/4. These lenses have been specially designed to
produce superior performance, resolution, and
contrast and to provide image circles as large as
those of 6x4.5 medium format lenses.
These unique lenses are what make the outstanding quality and full panorama format possible,
and are the key to producing medium format
quality on 35 mm film. Multicoated glass elements ensure top quality results, providing brilliant contrast and full tonal scale. Optical aberrations are well corrected, with almost no color fringing and extremely low distortion, even with
the extreme-wide angle coverage of the 30mm lens. The smooth action of the focusing ring
guarantees quick and accurate focusing. All lenses feature automatic coupling of the focusing
mechanism to the camera rangefinder, a rear bayonet fitting for camera attachment, and a front
bayonet fitting for lens shade. To meet the highest requirements for even corner-to-corner illumination, the 30mm Aspherical and 45mm lenses can be fitted with a dedicated center filter.
30mm f/5.6 Aspherical
(HA3056X)
When used for the 24x65 mm panorama format, this ultra-wide-angle lens provides a horizontal
view of almost 94° and retains its superb
performance over the entire image field with
virtually no distortion. The lens comes with an
auxiliary viewfinder, attached to the camera’s
flash shoe, containing built-in spirit level and
field markings for the regular and panorama
formats. The camera’s rangefinder is used for
30mm f/5.6
Aspherical
focusing only. Complete with a lens shade and a
dedicated 58mm center filter......................2849.95
45mm f/4
(HA454X)
The very compact design and high image quality
of the 45mm makes this lens the obvious choice
as the standard XPan II camera lens. When used
for panorama images the lens has a true wideangle horizontal coverage of 71°. The dedicated
49 mm center filter is recommended for critical
situations where transparency film is used. The
center filter is normally not required when using
negative film if the lens is stopped down to f/8 or
smaller aperture.............................................569.95
90mm f/4
45mm f/4
(HA904X)
This lens is ideally suited for general purpose
photography when a wide-angle effect is not
desired. When used for regular 24x36mm images,
it provides a telephoto perspective, when used for
panorama images the telephoto effect is moderate
but clearly visible...........................................689.95

Noblex’s 135 Series of panorama cameras operate along the same principle:
a rotating drum/lens revolves around a curved film plane. As light enters
the front of the lens, this light is passed through a 4mm slit at the rear of
the lens, completing the exposure. The rotating lens drum is driven by a
high performance DC motor and makes one revolution per exposure.
During the first half the drum reaches a constant speed and will thus
produce an absolutely even exposure during the second half. The click
stopped exposure speeds are created by variation in the drum speed. It is
conventional small format
comparative exposure with small format camera
possible to produce different types of multiple exposures, for instance
camera with 28 mm lens
Noblex 135 (135° picture angle)
extremely long exposures, picture montage and stroboscopic multiexposure Noblex pictures are genuine panorama photographs with an angle of 136° and correspond to the natural space perception of the human
vision. They are ideal for landscape, architectural landscape and travel photography, group portraits, wedding, sport, and still life photography.
CAMERAS & LENSES
Panoramic photography, and especially the super wide photos produced
from panoramic cameras have always inspired fascination. As in
normal human vision, the rotating shutter slit reproduces the entire
extension of landscape, interior architecture, the gentle curve of a
river, incorporating all that our eyes see before us. With panoramic
photography, dimensions begin to interact and as a result, heighten
their effect on each other. Perspective lines lead from foreground to
the horizon: the castle on the square, a cluster of trees in a field, the
relationship of a river bank to its surroundings; in essence, the
panorama which our eyes see is duplicated by the camera. So what is
the magic of these photos that captivates us so? The feeling of width? An
undistorted photographic rendition of what we have seen? Perhaps simply the chance
for the photographer to both see as well as photograph a true rendition of a scene. And, unlike “conventional” photography,
the ability to record these scenes without having to discard what the eye truly sees.

Kenko PRO 300 3.0x
Teleconverters for SLR Cameras
Placed between the camera body and lens, a teleconverter contains a set of optics that will effectively increase the focal length
of a lens by a specific amount. Common magnifications are 1.4
times and 2 times, but the Kenko Teleplus PRO 300 AF converter has a 3x magnification. For example, using a 3 times (3x)
teleconverter will increase the focal of 300mm lens to 900mm.
Placed between
the camera
body and
lens, a
teleconverter
contains a set
of optics that
will effectively
increase the focal length of any lens it is used
with. Kenko’s 1.5x and 2x Teleplus converters
have the effect of multiplying the focal length of
your lens by 1.5x or 2.0x. For example, using
the MC1.5 with a 300 mm lens will effectively
increase the focal length to 450mm. Using the
MC4 2x teleconverter with a 300mm lens will
effectively increase the focal length to 600mm.
They are an easy and
inexpensive way to increase the abilities of
your telephoto lens without the expense of
purchasing and carrying another telephoto
lens. Kenko Teleplus converters are small and
easy to carry in your camera bag.
Kenko’s converters have genuine Gate Array IC
(Integrated Circuitry). It means the converter’s
unique circuitry maintains signal integrity
between the camera body and lens. Their
4- and 7-element design is made with high
quality multicoated optical glass supplied by
Hoya Corporation, the worlds largest
manufacturer of optical glass.
Full AF operation with the converters is
possible with camera lenses with open aperture
of F4 or brighter. Please be aware that AF will
work properly only if there is enough light and
contrast on the subject to activate the camera’s
AF sensors. (Manual focusing is recommended
when using lenses with smaller open f-stop
value than those given above.)

The Teleplus PRO 300 AF converter is made with high quality
multi-coated optical glass. It is designed for use with lenses of
50mm or above and work best with telephoto lenses of 100mm
to 500mm.
The Teleplus PRO 300 AF converter has genuine Gate Array IC
(Integrated Circuitry). This means that the converter’s unique circuitry maintains signal
integrity between the camera body and lens. These converters are designed to electronically
operate the same way an original manufacturer’s converter would provided there is enough
light available.
Note: Due to the 3 stop light loss inherent in a 3x converter, the PRO 300 will not auto focus
with lenses that have a smaller aperture than f/2.8. With all lenses having apertures smaller
than f/2.8, Kenko recommends using the PRO 300 3x in manual focus mode.

Like the 3x, the Teleplus PRO 300 2x and 1.4x converters are
made with precision quality multicoated optical glass supplied
by Hoya Corporation—the worlds largest manufacturer of
optical glass. These glass elements are designed to match the
optical quality of the prime lens (even at the edges) and telephoto zoom lenses. The optical design of the elements and
light path is wide enough not to cause vignetting.
They are designed specifically to be used with prime
telephoto lenses of 100mm or above, such as the
Tokina AT-X 300 AF PRO, 300 mm f/2.8 lens, and work
best with telephoto lenses of 200mm to 500mm.
Like the 3x, the Teleplus PRO 300 2x and 1.4x converters also
have genuine Gate Array IC (Integrated Circuitry). This means that the converter’s own
unique circuitry maintains signal integrity between the camera body and lens. These converters
are designed to electronically operate the same way as an original manufacturer’s converter.
Full AF operation with 2.0x is possible when using camera lenses with maximum aperture of
F2.8 or brighter. Please be aware that AF will work properly only if there is enough light and
contrast on the subject to activate the camera’s AF sensors. (Manual focusing is required
when using lenses with smaller maximum f-stop value than those given above).With the 1.4x,
full AF operation is possible with camera lenses having a maximum aperture of F4 or
brighter. The same light and contrast requirements apply.

LENSPLUS LE-ADAPTER
With the LE Lens Adapter, you can now connect
your SLR camera directly to the eyepiece of most
telescopes, spotting scopes, microscopes,
binoculars or monoculars for eyepiece projection
photography with the unique patented and
versatile LE-Adapter camera accessory.
The tubes have no optics. They are mounted
in between the camera body and lens to create more distance between the lens and film
plane. By moving the lens father away from
the film in the camera, the lens is forced to
focus much closer than normal. The greater
the length of the extension tube, the closer
the lens can focus.
How does it work?
Kenko’s Extension Tube Set contains three
tubes (12mm, 20mm, and 36mm) which can
be used individually or in any combination.
They are designed with all the circuitry and
mechanical coupling to maintain AF and
TTL auto exposure.

M7
35mm Manual Focus
Rangefinder Camera
Classics are works that clash with the present. They are never modified –
instead they are re-interpreted on the basis of a changed world.
With the M7, a classic camera has been infused with modern
electronic advantages that results in a camera that is faster
than ever while still having the soul of a Leica. Convenience
and fast operation of the camera have been enhanced with
aperture-priority autoexposure, an informative viewfinder,
high-speed flash synchronization and more.
Not just the functions themselves are revolutionary, but their
seamless integration into the classic Leica M camera concept. The Leica cloth focal plane shutter – with its vibration-free
and quiet action is now controlled electronically. However, form, size and the proven operating concept are unchanged.
Virtually all system components of the preceding models (M6, M6 TTL) remain compatible. Photography with the M7 is a
surprisingly new and yet unchanged experience.
FEATURES
Range-finder System
Viewfinder
The range-viewfinder system is an optical
masterpiece, created for photographic work
at the highest level. Unlike a reflex system, in
which the focal length and the light intensity
affect the measurement, the measuring base
of the rangefinder in the M7 always remains
the same, regardless of the lens being used.
That is why its accuracy with short focal
length lenses is many times more accurate.
In addition, a special method of distance
measuring guarantees fast, accurate and
razor-sharp focusing, even under extremely
poor light conditions.
In order to
enhance
contrast and
brightness even
further, an especially
scratch-resistant multi-coating is applied to
the viewfinder windows. All the other
information that is relevant for a perfect
result, as well as the surroundings of the
subject is visible in the bright-line viewfinder
– ideal prerequisites for spontaneous,
inconspicuous photography. There are three
viewfinder magnifications to choose from:
The wide-angle and eyeglass wearer version
of 0.58x, the universal magnification of 0.72x
and the tele variant of 0.85x.
33 display items within an area of just 0.7 x 2.3mm constitute a
masterful achievement that is unique in a rangefinder camera.
Especially because the readings are displayed at 15x magnification,
so that the photographer has an optimal overview of all the
information he needs for a good exposure at a single glance. The
automatically generated shutter speed is indicated by an LED
display at the bottom of the large and bright viewfinder image.
For long exposure times, the viewfinder display shows the time that
remains. In the “B” time exposure mode, the display counts the
elapsed seconds upwards. The brightness of the display adjusts itself
automatically to the prevailing subject brightness, assuring the best visibility even in bright
sunlight, and in available light situations it prevents the display from blinding the observer.

Durable and Reliable
The mechanisms are unsurpassed in terms of precision and
dependability. High grade materials are used exclusively. The
top plate of the M7 is milled from a solid block of brass by a
modern process. The main body and the housing are made of
lightweight but extremely rugged die-cast aluminum. The M7
works quickly, easily and above all, quietly – it has no noisy
hinged mirrors and spring-loaded automatic diaphragms.
Therefore the sound of the shutter release is significantly more
quiet than the familiar clatter of single-lens-reflex cameras. The
chrome-plated rapid-change bayonet and the few knobs and switches are equally robust and
long-lived. They are positioned so conveniently and designed so ergonomically that they can
even be operated while wearing gloves. With their palpable marking, Leica lenses can also be
changed in the dark. They can be placed on a surface without their protective back covers
because there are no protruding pins and levers that could be damaged.

M7
Exposure Metering
Aperture Priority
Exposure
In addition to the familiar manual
exposure settings, the M7 features a
stepless automatic shutter speed control –
once the f-stop has been selected on the
lens, the camera’s electronics automatically
determine the ideal shutter speed for the
correct exposure, even for long exposure
times of up to 30 seconds. Plus, with the
exposure value storage at the release button, the desired exposure can be retained
for a particular part of the subject. Also
offers ±2EV exposure compensation.
The Shutter
The unique cloth focal plane shutter of the
Leica M is legendary. And while retaining all
its advantages, the M7 incorporates the
electronic control of the exposure times. Two
mechanically controlled shutter speeds of
1/60 second and 1/125 second guarantee the
functionality of the M7 even when the
batteries are dead. Furthermore, the shutter
release cycle is extremely quiet, fast and
vibration-free. The exposure delay amounts
to a mere 25 milliseconds in spite of the
electronic control and thus it is nearly ten
times faster than that of a conventional
autofocus single-lens-reflex camera.
With the LEICA M7, you can choose between three viewfinder magnifications: the standard 0.72x, an 0.85x
viewfinder magnification for longer focal lengths, and an 0.58x viewfinder magnification for wide-angle photography.
CAMERAS & LENSES
Backlighting, sports illumination or
laterally grazing light results in different
colors, brightness and contrasts. A
challenge that the M7 meets without
difficulties. Its selective TTL exposure
metering is activated by a slight pressure
on the shutter release button. This
selective exposure metering works
absolutely precisely and thanks to its high
sensitivity, it can even be used in candlelight. In conjunction with the stepless
automatic shutter speed control, perfectly
exposed images are possible under all
conditions without any problems.

MP
35mm Manual Focus Rangefinder Camera
CAMERAS & LENSES
Mechanical perfection. Nothing else. The Leica MP is a tool. Made by
hand, created for the photographer’s craft. Tailored to the decisive
photographic parameters. In compact form, with clean design, clearly
laid out. Unobtrusive, quiet, reliable. Concentrated technology for
concentrated photography, without distraction by automation.
For pictures that only a photographer can see, compose and record.
Modern, because it captures the present. Current, because all its
features have been optimized. Traditional, because it builds on
the accumulated experiences of the pioneer in 35mm camera
construction. Not a photographic whim, but a camera for life.
FEATURES
The MP is the purely mechanical
alternative to the M7, whose electronically
controlled shutter and aperture priority
automatic exposure control offer more
convenience and functions. The MP is
dependent upon the skill of the photographer, but independent of, for instance,
batteries. The latter are only needed for
exposure metering. Those who set shutter
speeds and apertures themselves can
dispense with the electronics altogether.
◆
All control elements
are made completely
of metal. The pull-up
rewind knob is especially handy and
impact-resistant.
◆
◆
Tailored ideally to the preferences and
needs of the photographer, the MP is
available with the three viewfinder
magnifications of 0.58x, 0.72x, and 0.85x:
0.58x magnification for a great overview
with wide-angle lenses and for eyeglass
wearers. 0.72x as a universal standard.
0.85x for accurate focusing with medium
focal length and telephoto lenses.
Photography means writing with light.
Photography with the MP also means
being able to create dramatic images even
in low light situations. Lenses that deliver
rich contrast and full performance at full
aperture; focusing with pinpoint accuracy
with the Leica rangefinder; and the
vibration-free release of the cloth focal
plane shutter are the basis for that
capability.
◆
The MP has been designed for longevity and
value retention. To that end, Leica uses only
selected materials and sophisticated
fabrication processes. Before it was ready
to be marketed, the MP was subjected to
numerous and exhaustive field- and
laboratory tests to prove its solidity. In
extremely cold temperatures, in which no
battery-dependent camera would function
any longer. With shutter release cycles in
numbers that hardly any other camera can
sustain. That’s why Leica can offer an
unusually long 5-year warranty period.
◆
◆
The MP is available in two finishes: silver chrome and black lacquer. And when, after long and
intensive use, the black lacquer wears down to the bare brass on some edges and corners, you’ll
know that you shared many experiences with the camera.
Difficult light situations can be mastered
accurately with the MP, because the camera
does not attempt to think on behalf of the
photographer. Instead, its selective exposure
metering provides the photographer with
accurate, unequivocal data on which he can
base his decisions. The MP goes one step
further with a newly improved viewfinder :
A new type of mirror and an additional lens
element present a measuring field rich in
contrast and clearly delineated bright-line
frames for the various focal lengths, even
with particularly critical lateral light.
MP Hammertone (LHSA)
The special edition MP LHSA model was commissioned by the Leica Historical Society of
America (LHSA) on the occasion of their 35th birthday. Its surface finishing evokes the style
of 1960s machinery and tools: top plate and base plate are given a grey Hammertone finish.
MP Hermes Edition
The MP Hermes Edition is a special edition of 500 silver-chrome MP cameras covered with
exquisite Barenia calfskin supplied by Hermès. The processing of Barenia leather, which has
a very fine, natural grain, gives it its unmistakable luxurious “feel”. The naturally brown
leather harmonizes particularly well with the silver chrome finish of the camera. In addition
to a 35mm f/2 Summicron-M ASPH lens that is also finished in silver chrome, this special
edition includes a handcrafted camera strap using the same exquisite Barenia leather.
The lens hood, the camera body cover as well as the front- and rear covers of the lens are
made of solid brass and they too, are finished in silver chrome. Special serial numbers
from 001/500 to 500/500 are engraved on the lens and on the camera. Shipped in a textilecovered box, which is lined with pure silk.

The extreme importance that Leica dedicates to the highest quality of its products can be verified on
every individual lens. Optical glasses are prepared to special formulations and grounded, polished and
ultimately centered with extremely meticulous craftsmanship. The result, convenient, compact precision
optics, unique in themselves that are always designed to meet the needs of practical photography. And
extraordinarily long-lived too. All Leica M lenses are compatible with every M cameras of the past, present and future. There is more. The judicious policy of preserving compatibility even allows lenses from
the 1930’s to be used on highly modern Leica cameras. Every new lens is supplied with a high-grade soft
nappa leather case and a lens hood that is specifically designed for that lens.
At Leica, each lens is a masterpiece. Aspherical lens elements (ASPH) are used for further enhancement
of the imaging performance. They have a surface that deviates from the spherical shape and they are very
complex to produce, but they produce the very best results with a compact design. Apochromatic correction (APO) is used by
Leica on telephoto lenses in order to combine the color spectrum coming from a point on the subject practically into a point on
the image. This assures the highest sharpness across the entire image, even at full aperture.

Uniform sharpness and low distortion across the entire image area, even at full aperture,
distinguish this lens.This is achieved with, among other factors, a lens element with an
aspherical surface. Optimal for dramatic effects with monumental foreground, strongly
receding background and a wide horizon. With this lens, focusing and exposure metering are
performed by looking into the camera’s viewfinder, whereas the actual field coverage is
checked by means of an accessory brilliant viewfinder. Available in black anodized or silver

High Optical Performance:
Designed and manufactured in Germany, the lens comprises 8 lenses in 6 groups. In order to guarantee maximum optical performance for such a
compact lens, two aspherical lenses were used. Furthermore, 5 lenses in the complex optical system are made of especially high refracting glass. The
lens is characterized by good to very good performance at all three focal lengths. Even when completely open, a high-contrast image with good
detail resolution is achieved. The contrast can even be increased by stopping down at f/5.6. Because the performance is already good with maximum
opening, the critical f-stop with this lens is between f-stop 5.6 and 8. At all three focal lengths, field curvature has been reduced to a minimum so
that it is not visible in practice. At 35mm and 50mm, vignetting is similarly low to that of the Leica M fixed focal lengths. Only at 28mm is
vignetting slightly stronger. Above f/8 all three focal lengths of the lens are free of artificial vignetting .................................................................2895.00

With the versatile Tri-Elmar-M, Leica combines the M-photographer’s three most popular focal
lengths, 28, 35 and 50mm, into a single, extremely compact lens—while retaining the high optical
performance typical of Leica. Completely redesigned and more reliable and easier to use than ever.
A shaped handle on the distance setting ring makes focusing easier and a scale on the lens displays
the depth of field for all three focal lengths. Filter diameter is reduced is only 49mm for a better
viewfinder image. The optimized zoom ring engages audibly and tangibly at every focal length
now, thus preventing accidental readjustment of the focal length. A metal lens hood is available as
an accessory that does not obstruct the viewfinder image. Using an adapter, a 67mm circular
polarizer can be used that is set directly through the viewfinder. A matching 49mm UVA “slim
filter” that prevents vignetting at 28mm is also available.

CAMERAS & LENSES
35mm Manual Focusing SLR Camera
A unique technological masterpiece, the R9 is the outstanding result of
years of development work. Embodying all of Leica's optical
and mechanical know how, the R9 meets the highest
demands down to the smallest detail in order to deliver the
very best—brilliant photographs, even under extremely
difficult light conditions. The R9 gives you the confidence
of being able to rely fully on precise automatic procedures
– as long as you so desire. But you can also exercise your
creative latitude as much as you wish with all camera
functions. With its many manual setting possibilities, the
R9 always leaves it up to you to what extent you wish to
control the exposure yourself.
Photography thrives on the creative freedom of photographers, and that freedom doesn’t like to be encumbered by
complicated technology. Leica recognized this a long time ago. Guided by this policy, the R9 isn’t crammed with every
possible feature into the camera – only those features that make good sense – and at Leica’s level of excellence. Special
attention was paid, for instance, to the photographer’s freedom to exercise complete control. Furthermore, the uniquely
brilliant viewfinder enables him or her to evaluate the depth of field and the cropping.
With mechanical precision down to the finest details, innovative optics and intelligently thought-out electronics, the
R9 is designed to implement your ideas with the highest possible quality. This opens all the possibilities for spontaneous,
individualized creativity. And with it, flexibility, freedom, and not least the great pleasure of working with a superb camera.
FEATURES
◆ All
operating elements of the R9 are positioned very conveniently and can be operated intuitively, without moving the eye
away from the viewfinder. The rugged
metal body fits very nicely in your hands
and it weighs an ideal 27 oz.
◆
Thanks to its R bayonet, the R9 is compatible with virtually all R lenses made since
1965. Nearly all current Leica R lenses are
equipped with ROM contacts, which establish specific communication between camera and lens, leading to perfect exposures.
◆
Judiciously balanced in every detail, the
design of the R9 will quickly excite you. Its
compact external appearance is attractive
because of the clarity of its contours and
the harmony of all its proportions. The
prism housing that usually clearly protrudes on other SLR cameras is integrated
into the shape of the R9 camera body with
elegant restraint, so that it is but a graceful
contour. The main operating elements also
don’t protrude, and are recessed into the
housing instead.
A skilled photographer can use any camera to take good pictures. However, for outstanding
photographs that fully satisfy their own standards of quality, a tool that functions at least as
accurately as he or she does is needed. Leica SLR cameras enable the execution of creative
ideas confidently in all situations, because every Leica is a precision instrument, manufactured
by with great dedication and scrupulous accuracy. The Leica R system embodies over a hundred years of optical and mechanical experience, combined with the most modern manufacturing technology and special craftsmanship that make Leica cameras and lenses legendary.

◆
The R9’s distinctive styling stands out for
its unique clarity and timeless elegance. Its
sturdy metal construction makes it robust
and durable. With outstanding ergonomic
design, the R9 fits very well in the hands,
even with long focal length lenses.
◆
Flexibility and comfort are also emphasized
in conjunction with the film advance. Easy
film advance starts with the insertion of
the film cartridge, because you are spared
the usually cumbersome threading.
◆
When the optional winder or motor drive
is being used, you can also decide whether
the film tongue is to be rewound completely into the cartridge or not.
◆
With double exposures too, you have every
option: avoid double exposures altogether
– or implement them deliberately, because
the R9 has an extra lever that uncouples
the film advance mechanism and
accurately locks the film in its position.

The Viewfinder
◆A
single LCD line below the viewfinder
image provides a clear, unobtrusive
overview of, among other things and
depending on the operating mode: exposure number, operating mode, metering
method, light balance with manual exposure setting, flash readiness as well as the
aperture-and-shutter-speed combination,
etc. With zoom lenses that have a focallength-dependent aperture range, the actual aperture is shown in the viewfinder display in steps within the respective aperture
range.
◆
◆
Exposures in the multi-pattern metering mode can not only be controlled by means of the
exposure compensation switch and the ISO keys via the back cover display, they can also be
adjusted individually. If you wish, the exposure level can be modified to suit your preference
and programmed permanently in steps of one tenth of an f-stop (max. ±0.7 stop) in the
multi-pattern metering mode and in accordance with the type of film being used.
◆
Film speed can be read on the back cover LCD display. Thanks to DX coding, you can begin to
take pictures immediately after loading the film without risking exposure errors. Manual
changes of the ISO setting can be done to satisfy individual preferences: for more intense color
saturation in the case of slide films for instance, or for push-processing. The film speed read
from the DX coding is shown permanently in the display.
◆
The self-timer can be set for two shutter release delays : 2-sec. and 12-sec. The time remaining
before the shutter is released is shown on the back cover display in the form of a countdown.
A red LED on the front of the camera blinks while the self-timer is activated.
Exposure Control—Designed to Master any Situation
Equipped with an extremely sensitive metering system with three specific exposure metering
modes, the R9 makes it easy for you to react to the most diverse lighting situations. Whether you
opt for an intelligent, fully automatic determination of a balanced exposure or whether you wish
to control this process yourself – the R9 provides you with a free choice.
◆
For time exposures an integrated shutter
prevents light from reaching the film
through the eyepiece.
◆
Diopter compensation range from ±2 in
half steps, enables photographers to focus
and expose with or without their glasses.
◆
The R9 is equipped with an interchangeable universal focusing screen (ground
glass screen with microprism ring and
wedge). Four additional focusing screens
are optionally available: uniform ground
glass screen, microprism focusing screen,
uniform ground glass screen with grid
divisions, clear glass screen with cross lines.
◆
Multiple-pattern metering automatically analyzes the prevailing light and derives an optimal
exposure from the results. The brightness values of six different sections are measured and
stored separately. The values are then assigned to preprogrammed subject types that are coupled with prescribed control instructions. The individual sections are then weighted and coordinated with the full subject area. The result: exposures that are always well balanced, even in
extreme contrast situations, above- and below average brightness conditions or unusually
positioned main subjects. And since different films require tailored exposure settings (short
exposures for transparencies, long exposures for negatives), the exposure level of the multiple
pattern exposure metering mode can be adjusted in 1/10s of a step to suit individual wishes.
◆
Selective metering with the R9 is the first choice for all those photographs that pose a genuine
challenge: back-lit situations or subjects with extreme contrasts. Selective metering covers a
narrowly limited subject area. The exposure value determined by this precise metering method
can be stored by gently pressing the shutter release button to the first pressure point and holding it there until you have found your optimal composition. Shutter speed or aperture settings
can still be changed, because the camera will automatically compensate the second setting to
maintain the metered exposure value.
◆
Integral metering is suitable primarily for balanced light situations. In this mode, the entire
subject is center-weighted and metered – an optimal solution for subjects that are centered
anyway. Integral metering is of practically universal application, you retain control of the
exposure. That is why it is particularly appropriate for specific overrides : over- or underexposures by means of ± corrections. The override switch can be activated safely even while the eye
is at the viewfinder.

The high-eyepoint viewfinder itself offers
an absolutely brilliant and contrasty image.
Even under unfavorable light conditions, it
provides a bright, dimensional image of
every subject and all its nuances, exactly as
you see it. And it does so all the way into
the corners of the focusing screen – without your having to press your eye to the
eyecup. For convenience, the eyecup can be
locked in place, so it doesn’t get lost.
Even when your eye is not at the viewfinder, you can
easily survey all the parameters. The R9 features an
illuminated LCD display on the back cover of the
camera for added convenience. In addition to certain
parameters that are also shown in the viewfinder, it
provides information about film speed, self-timer
operation and battery condition. When the camera is
switched on, the LCD shows, among other parameters, the exposure counter, including multiple exposures, battery condition (in two steps), exposure corrections, flash readiness and the exposure deviation in the F mode. Beyond that, the display shows the elapsed seconds during time exposures.

Program Modes
The R9 offers four different operating modes,
all of which can readily be combined with
the three metering methods. (Shutter speed
is stepless in automatic program and
aperture priority modes from 32 to 1/8000
sec., and in half-steps from 16 to 1/8000 sec.,
in shutter speed priority and manual
exposure modes.) For added convenience
the operating mode selector dial can be
locked, ensuring that your setting will be
retained, so that you can start making
exposures in the selected mode at any time.
P – Variable Automatic Program Mode:
Interesting subjects require a quick reaction.
Those are perfect situations for the variable
automatic program mode, because it
spontaneously and instantly sets the
appropriate combination of shutter speed
and aperture. In addition, by turning the
shutter speed dial, you can change the shutter
speed and aperture combination established
by the camera at any time to suit the desired
pictorial effect. Thus the variable automatic
program mode very conveniently takes care
of freezing a fast-moving subject or
deliberately reducing the depth of field.
A – Aperture Priority:
While you concentrate on the choice of just
the right aperture for your photograph the
the camera sets the proper shutter speed.
On the R9, you can use the preview lever to
evaluate the depth of field directly through
the viewfinder. And thanks to HSS (High
Speed Synchronization) you can now use
flash with all shutter speeds.
T – Shutter Speed Priority:
You set the shutter while the camera
automatically sets the correct aperture. By
pre-setting the shutter speed, for instance,
you can opt for a sharp, frozen image of the
subject, or use it to create a dynamic blur.
M– Manual Operation:
Ideal when you are working under unusual
light conditions and you wish to capture a
very special mood. In this mode, you set both
the shutter speed as well as the aperture, and
you can change them in half steps. By using
the selective metering mode, you can control
the exposure very precisely.

USING FLASH—LIGHT DOESN’T EQUAL LIGHT
The flash exposure control of the R9 enables you to achieve any desired lighting
mood. It determines the particular individual flash intensity and automatically
and precisely balances the flash with the surrounding ambient illumination. If
you prefer, you can also make these settings.
Metering During the Exposure:
Flash illumination – like daylight illumination – is metered through the lens. With dedicated flash units, this takes place in the center-weighted integral mode. You can, however, choose one of several modes in order to take advantage of different creative possibilities: The variable automatic program mode measures the ambient light and tailors the
flash intensity to it in a pleasing manner. In shutter speed and aperture priority modes
or in manual, you can preset the shutter speed or the aperture, respectively, and enter
the corrections of the amount of flash for the desired pictorial effect.
Metering Before the Exposure:
With the R9, flash exposure can also be metered before
making the actual exposure. The metering in this case is
limited to the part of the subject outlined by the circle
in the center of the viewfinder image. This makes it
possible to tailor the flash illumination specifically to a
particular detail of your subject. Flash brightness is
metered by means of a pre-flash directed at the subject.
The result is shown in the over- and under-exposure
reading in the back cover display and it can be corrected
quickly by manually selecting the appropriate aperture. Brightness of the entire subject
is subsequently measured in one of the three metering modes, and then the actual
exposure is made. The selective flash mode F thus leads to perfectly balanced pictures in
conjunction with an external flash unit.
High-Speed Flashes:
With High Speed Synchronization (HSS), the R9 permits super-fast flash exposures with
shutter speeds up to 1/8000 (in conjunction with an HSS flash like the Metz 54MZ-3.
By triggering numerous flashes in very fast succession, the effect comes very close to that
of a constant light source that uniformly illuminates the entire image area. This makes it
possible, for instance, to achieve a fill-flash effect in portraits being taken in sunshine
with a wide-open aperture. The flash exposure is determined by means of a pre-flash
with selective metering of the main subject. As long as the camera’s electronics are activated, the result of the pre-exposure metering remains stored independently of the result
of the ambient light metering, so that the desired cropping can be chosen freely after
that measurement has been stored.
First or Second Shutter Curtain:
You can set the timing of flash synchronization yourself by using the respective lever
position. This determines whether the flash is triggered at the beginning of the exposure
as usual, or whether it is fired at the end of the exposure. These two modes can often
render the very same subject quite differently. When the flash is triggered at the end of
the exposure (i. e. synchronized with the second shutter curtain), moving subjects are
depicted more realistically. This effect becomes much more dramatic with long
exposure times.

The Digital Modul-R is
a digital camera back
designed for the Leica R8
and R9 cameras. With the
back they become the
world’s first hybrid 35mm
cameras that can be used
optionally for digital or
analog photography.
◆
The image sensor consists of a 10-megapixel CCD sensor specially
produced by Kodak. The integration of the sensor into an existing
camera concept requires that the sensor and its housing be positioned at
the film gate of the R8 or R9. That is why the active surface of the sensor
is smaller than the area of the film gate, limiting the resulting focal
length extension factor to a modest 1.37x. The effective imaging area of
the sensors measures 26.4 x 17.6mm. Sensitivity ranges from ISO 100 to
at ISO 800.
◆
In addition to the high quality picture, the Digital Modul-R provides a
solution that is as compact as possible, with a logical operating
procedure. This means that the settings that are relevant for the
exposure are easy to control by means of a clearly legible display and a
setting dial, without having to use the menu guide on the color monitor.
◆
Functions that can be controlled directly are: sensitivity setting,
resolution, compression, white balance, self-timer, and exposure
corrections. Menu functions on the color monitor are for configuring
the back—setting the user profile, color management, or brightness and
contrast of the color monitor. Because functions can be controlled
directly while shooting by means of the setting dial, the content of the
menu is minimal and it provides a clear overview.

R LENSES
The fascination of the name Leica is rooted as much in the superb mechanisms of the camera as it is in the proverbial precision and quality of its legendary lenses. And with the R9 too, the entire spectrum of R lenses developed since 1965 is applicable, supplemented by they latest designs in the fields of wideangle-and zoom lenses. R lenses and the R9 body form a system
that is ready for use immediately and that functions dependably. Making it easy for you to create perfect pictures.
Leica lenses are masterpieces, many of them of legendary fame. The quality of the optical glasses is the basis of this extraordinary reputation. Produced in accordance with special recipes, ground to clear perfection, meticulously polished, coated
with extremely precise layers and repeatedly centered. In a synthesis of continually refined software and the long-time experience of highly specialized designers, Leica optics have been computed with the aid of electronic data processing systems
since the fifties. The lenses stand out because of their imaging quality, which always receives top ratings in specialized photographic magazine tests and which are unequalled internationally.
You’ll benefit from yet another exclusive advantage, a special feature that only Leica offers: The specific parameters of every
current R lens (not just the general parameters of a given lens type) are measured individually and programmed into the
ROM module of each lens, so they can communicate to the camera by means of appropriate contacts. This enables the R9 to
conform precisely to true focal lengths and apertures in order, for instance, to control flash exposures accurately.
SUPER WIDE-ANGLE LENSES
Super wide-angle lenses are fascinating because of their enormous angle of view, which covers a much greater field
of view than standard focal lengths do, for instance. They characteristically produce intensified perspectives with
monumental foregrounds and rapidly receding backgrounds.
15mm f/2.8 Super-Elmarit-R ASPH

The APO-TELYT-R Module System
The APO-TELYT-R Module System covers the range of focal lengths from 280 to 800 mm,
replacing heavy individual lenses with fixed focal lengths, making it particularly attractive for
nature- and sports photographers. With a twist of the wrist, six different APO lenses of the very
highest optical quality can be created from two lens heads and three extremely compact focusing
modules. The result, uncommonly clear pictures with very high contrast and absolute detailand color fidelity can be achieved where atmospheric disturbances and light haze or fog would
otherwise reduce the image quality considerably. Because the smallest mechanical errors and
weaknesses in this range can clearly diminish the performance, the Leica Module System is very
sturdy and assembled with extremely tight tolerances.
All you need to do, is to join an APO-TELTYT-R
lens head and an appropriate focusing module to
obtain the desired focal length to suit a particular
photographic task. Thanks to a special bayonet and
the large locking ring, this can be done quickly
and easily. The advantage of this intelligent system:
you don’t have to carry along many large and
heavy individual telephoto lenses.

Entry-Level Manual Focus SLR
Minolta’s manual-focus X-Series SLRs have long been favorites of
photography students, amateurs, and professionals alike. With the
aperture-priority X-370s, you set an aperture and the camera sets the
shutter speed for proper exposure. The camera has a full-metered manual
exposure control for the photographer who wants to do it all. Along with
the comprehensive X-Series system of lenses and accessories, the X-370s
gives you system sophistication with simple, dependable operation. It’s the
35mm single-lens-reflex camera system you’ve always wanted to own.
FEATURES
Precise, Creative Control
◆A
number of performance features that let
you take command of every photographic
opportunity. Quartz-controlled circuitry
provides the consistent and dependable
precision needed for outstanding results.
◆
◆
Automatic exposure control with automatic
exposure lock assures proper exposure
under normal and complex lighting
conditions. Viewfinder displays confirm
operating status and exposure information.
Metered manual exposure control provides
unlimited creativity in aperture/shutter
speed combinations.
With a full selection of lenses and
accessories, the X-370s is a system one can
grow with.
Aperture-Priority Exposure
◆
◆
Aperture-priority automatic exposure
control provides accurate exposures under
a wide range of lighting conditions. Simply
set a desired lens aperture, and the camera
selects the appropriate shutter speed steplessly from 4 sec. to 1/1000 sec. A shutter
speed scale is displayed in the viewfinder.
As the user rotates the lens’ aperture
selector ring, viewfinder LEDs light up next
to the corresponding shutter speeds, so the
user can also use this method to set
exposure based on a desired shutter speed.
TTL Center-Weighted
Average Metering
Through-the-lens exposure metering reads
the entire image frame with the greatest
emphasis on objects in the center. Centerweighted metering is a reliable and time-tested
system used by a broad range of photographers. With the various types of metering
patterns available in today’s electronically
sophisticated SLR cameras, center-weighted
metering still remains in great demand.
AE Lock
By pressing the AE lock button, the user can
lock the exposure reading on the main subject.
Once the exposure is locked, the image can be
recomposed with the subject anywhere in the
viewfinder frame. AE lock is also recommended
if the subject is strongly backlit or if the subject
is off-center and is much lighter or dimmer
than the area at the center of the frame.
– Minolta’s split-image, acute-matte focusing
screen provides optimum light dispersion
for a bright and clear image that is easy to
focus even in low light.
Automatic
Flash Photography
◆
The X-370S provides automatic flash photography when used with any of Minolta’s
X-Series flash units. When one of these
flashes is attached to the X-370s’ accessory

CAMERAS & LENSES
Powerful and Stylish Entry-Level SLR
An affordable entry-level SLR, the sleek Maxxum 50 DATE features a
wide 3-point autofocusing system for increased focusing confidence,
Predictive Focus Control for moving subjects and Full-Auto Program for
no-fuss shooting. Other features include super bright viewfinder and up to
1.7 fps continuous shooting. It has a built-in flash and incorporates
Minolta’s sophisticated ADI metering allowing use with Minolta’s interchangeable compact and lightweight D series lenses. In addition, it uses
the same type focusing screen as Minolta’s top-of-the-line Maxxum 7 & 9,
for exceptionally bright and clear viewfinder images.
Easy to use and comfortable to hold, controls and dials are laid out for
clear, intuitive operation. The camera can be controlled with the thumb and
index finger while maintaining a firm grip on the body. Additionally, a large LCD data panel
on the top of the body and an illuminated viewfinder data panel clearly display camera status. Accepts all Maxxum AF
lenses for outstanding photographic potential and image quality.
FEATURES
3-Point Continuous AF
Predictive Focus Control
Dual-Area Metering
The Maxxum 50 DATE uses a wide autofocus
area, three AF sensors, and continuous multidimensional autofocusing to keep the subject
sharp. The AF system continuously tracks subject movement in any direction as long as the
shutter-release button is held partway down.
For maximum performance, the center AF
sensor is a crosshair type that can deliver crisp
results regardless of vertical or horizontal subject pattern or contrast.
AF SLR cameras experience a minute delay
when taking pictures because the mirror must
be lifted out of the optical path. Especially
with telephoto lenses, this slight delay can be
significant with fast moving subjects moving
toward the camera. To ensure the most precise
subject focus, the Maxxum 50 DATE uses
Predictive Focus Control, which keeps a clear
focus on fast-moving subjects until you’re
ready to shoot, predicting exactly where a
moving subject is going to be at the moment
of shutter release and ensuring that the focus
is razor sharp.
The camera’s exposure metering system uses
two separate metering segments to read the
subject and background areas. By reading
both areas and biasing the exposure on the
subject area, pleasing images are rendered
under a wide range of shooting situations.
Spot AF
For creative image compositions, you can
switch between the wide AF area and spot AF
area to single out a subject, such as a specific
person in a group. The center focus sensor
is selected using the spot AF button. This
feature is especially valuable when photographing children at play.
Multiple Exposure
Multiple exposure function gives you the
creative power to combine multiple exposures
into one frame, for stunning images.
Exposure Compensation
and Bracketing
When shooting in tricky lighting situations
such as high-contrast scenes, snowy
landscapes, or dark shadows, experienced
photographers often use exposure
compensation or bracketing to ensure they
get the exposure that best renders the scene.
With the Maxxum 50 DATE, exposure can be
compensated up to ±3 EV in 0.5 increments.
Plus, a three bracket series can be taken in
0.3, 0.5, 0.7, or 1.0 EV increments.

MAXXUM 50 DATE
Subject Program Selection
Not only is the physical layout of the Maxxum 50 DATE designed for ease of use, but the exposure and focus systems can be automatically set to capture sudden moments quickly and effortlessly. Subject Program Selection gives beginner photographers the ability to control the camera
according to the subject, without a working knowledge of apertures and shutter speeds. Five
modes are available, each ideally suited for a specific type of shot.
ADI Flash Metering
• Landscape – controls the aperture to
produce a deep depth-of-field so that the
foreground and background are sharp. Ideal
for travel photos.

The ADI (Advanced Distance Integration)
system delivers accurate flash metering for
both internal and external Minolta flashes.
When used with Minolta D lenses, the
Maxxum 50 DATE’s ADI flash metering
achieves better, more accurate flash control
than conventional flash metering. ADI combines subject distance data with the light
intensity measurement from the pre-flash to
control the exposure flash output. ADI uses
the AF sensor (with the built-in flash), or
dual-segment metering of the reflected preflash (with external flash units). With non-D
lenses, pre-flash TTL metering is used.
• Portrait – controls the aperture to produce
a shallow depth-of-field to isolate the subject from the background.

FEATURES
9-Point AF System
Nine sensors laid out to the “rule of thirds”
work in unison, giving you the flexibility to
position your main subject anywhere within
the wide focus frame. Center crosshair sensor
ensures precise focus regardless of vertical or
horizontal subject contrast. In continuous AF
mode, the 9-point system takes control so
you can concentrate completely on the
viewfinder image. Plus, you can fine-tune the
focus manually during AF shooting.
Predictive Focus Control
Predictive Focus Control keeps a clear focus
on fast-moving subjects until you’re ready to
shoot, predicting exactly where a moving
subject is going to be the moment the shutter
is released, ensuring razor sharp focus.
Focus Area Illumination
When following moving subjects in the
viewfinder you’ll know exactly what the
camera is focusing on. A local focus area or
spot focus area on the viewfinder screen
blinks to show that it is being used to focus
the moving subject.
Direct Manual Focusing
Super-Bright Viewfinder
Offers high performance autofocus plus the
creative control of manual focus without having to change focusing modes. With D-Series
lenses, Direct Manual Focus (DMF) lets you
fine-tune the focus using the lens’ focus ring
after the focus is locked by the AF system.
The Maxxum 70 DATE is equipped with the
same high-quality spherical acute mattefocusing screen as the Maxxum 7/9. The
viewfinder provides a bright, clear image,
which is very important when working in
low-light or with slow lenses. Also, the
0.75x Magnification feature allows for
comfortable viewing.
14-Segment Metering
Produce accurate exposures, even under back
and spot lighting. The system measures light
levels from 13 segments in a honeycomb pattern across the viewfinder frame, plus the
background area, with emphasis on the segments surrounding the active AF sensor. Also
offers spot metering to precisely meter a
small portion of the subject or scene. This
allows the effect of dramatic lighting to be
preserved or accentuated in a photo.
Exposure Compensation
Exposure can be compensated up to ±3 EV in
0.5 increments. To ensure you get the optimum exposure for tricky high-contrast
scenes, a three bracket series can be made in
0.3, 0.5, 0.7, or 1.0 EV increments.

release the shutter at the desired position. The button can also be customized to provide
different functions when the lens is attached to a camera with custom functions. In manual,
the wide focus ring is easy to control, and rotates smoothly. Ideal for shooting flowers or
small animals, the lens also delivers fine portrait and landscape results. The “double floating”
focusing method corrects aberrations to provide fine images at any distance. In addition, the
9-blade, circular aperture produces a smooth and natural rendition of defocused images, as
well as nearly circular shapes of point sources of light such as a reflection of the morning
dew. Supports Minolta’s ADI flash metering by providing precise distance information from

AF 70-200mm f/2.8 APO G (D) SSM
(MI7020028DAF)
This lens employs supersonic-wave motor (SSM) technology for quieter, smoother AF operation, and uses the
finest optical glass to provide sharp, color-free images across the entire film area at all apertures. It uses 19
finely crafted elements, including four AD (anomalous dispersion) lenses, to virtually eliminate aberrations and
curvature of field. High-quality multi-coatings increase transmittance and reduce flare to preserve contrast.
9-blade circular aperture design keeps the defocused image of point light sources outside the depth of field
round between f/2.8 and f/5.6. For convenience, three focus hold buttons let you lock the focus at the press of
a button. Two DMF (Direct Manual Focus) modes give exacting control over the AF system. Standard DMF
allows the photographer to fine tune the focus after the AF system has locked onto the subject. Full-time DMF
gives the photographer access to manual focus control at any time by simply turning the focusing ring
The lens includes a removable tripod collar that rotates 360° so that the camera and lens can be orientated
in any position when mounted from above or below. It also includes a lightweight, but durable, petal-type
lens hood lined with velvet to reduce flare. The hood also has a covered polarizing-filter window so that a
polarizing filter can be rotated without having to remove the hood from the lens. It includes padded lens case.
Filter size is 77mm ........................................................................................................... IMP. 1799.95 /USA 1849.95

Close-up Lenses
Have you ever wished that your lens could focus closer
than it does? Imagine that you could put a magnifying
glass in front of your camera’s lens. Close-up lenses work
in this fashion and are the simplest and least expensive
method of close-up photography. They are available in
different “powers” (diopters). Minolta close-up lenses are
available in strengths of #0, #1 and #2, with #2 having the greatest
magnification. A #0 close-up lens will allow you to focus your lens
somewhat closer than it already does. A +2 close-up lens will allow you to
focus closer than the +1. These lenses can be used individually or in any combination to achieve
ultra-close focus. The maximum magnification achieved with these attachments will depend on
the focal length of your lens as well as the actual close focusing capability of that particular lens.

FM3A
35mm Manual SLR Camera
CAMERAS & LENSES
Designed for those who honor tradition—the photographic purist or the
student first learning this craft. The FM3a (available in silver or black)
is a manual-focus 35mm SLR camera featuring a special hybrid shutter
control system enabling full mechanical exposure control range plus electronic shutter speed control. Fully mechanical operation with manual
focusing puts the photographer in charge of any picture-taking situation.
Add a small battery and you gain the advantage of Nikon’s performance
proven 60/40 TTL Center-Weighted Metering system, and unheard of in a
mechanical SLR — aperture priority automatic exposure for the utmost in
shooting flexibility. The FM3a also features a durable die-cast metal body; bright viewfinder and interchangeable screens for
critical manual focusing; center-weighted TTL full-aperture exposure metering with exposure compensation; up to 1/4000
second shutter speed; and TTL flash control. With the optional MD-12 Motor Drive, you can shoot up to 3.2 frames per second.
FEATURES
◆
◆
Top shutter speed of 1/4000 second allows
critical action-stopping photos. Speed can
be manually selected from 1/4000 to one
second. In Aperture-Priority mode, shutter
speed is controlled from 8 to 1/4000 second.
◆
Exposure compensation lets you vary
exposure ±2 EV in 1/3 EV Steps.
◆
Lock in exposure and recompose the shot as
you like with Auto Exposure Lock (AE-L)
◆
Fast 1/250 sec. TTL flash sync, with fill-flash
capability allows shooting in virtually all
ambient light conditions. When used with
Nikon TTL Speedlights, the FM3A’s TTL
sensor monitors both ambient and flash
illumination. When the total light accumulated is right for the correct exposure, the
flash automatically turns off.
◆
For fill effects, the FM3A includes a TTL
flash compensation button which reduces
flash output for a balanced fill-flash or to
avoid overexposure of subjects against a
dark background. Slow Sync Fill-Flash is
also possible in manual exposure mode.
◆
Compatible with DX-coded film (ISO 25 to
5000) and ISO 12 to 6400 (manual)
◆
Includes a bright split image rangefinder
and matte surface focusing screen (interchangeable) for critical manual focus.
◆
Rugged and durable with a die-cast body
made of copper silumin aluminum, a metal
alloy that significantly reduces the effects of
extreme temperature and humidity. While
remarkably light, the alloy is rigid and
resistant to metal fatigue and corrosion.

the camera’s built-in exposure meter. The
battery power check is displayed for 16
seconds with the meter-on timer. Under
battery power the FM3A offers AperturePriority Auto Exposure. With AperturePriority control, you choose the desired
aperture, while the FM3A automatically sets
the appropriate shutter speed.
◆ 60/40 center-weighted meter easily handles
a wide range of lighting. Using it as your
guide, you’re in full control of the camera’s
shutter speed and aperture as you monitor
each adjustment through the full-information viewfinder. Use match-needle metering
with the FM3A’s guidance or experiment
with intentional over- or under-exposures.

N80
35mm SLR Autofocus Camera
5-Area AF System
◆
◆
The N80 features five AF sensors, including a cross-type sensor, positioned in the
center, and four additional line sensors
positioned left, right, top and bottom of
the viewfinder frame.
This array of AF sensors covers a wide area
in both the horizontal and the vertical
ranges. And thanks to the placement of top
and bottom sensors, the camera offers a
cross-array of AF sensing even when you
shoot vertical compositions.
Three AF Area Modes
◆
Dynamic AF mode ensures accurate focusing, even if your subject moves from its original
position after you’ve selected a focus area. In this mode, the focus area will automatically shift
from your selected focus area to the one in which the subject has moved. This makes it ideal
for shooting action photos and others with unpredictable moving subjects.
◆
In Closest-subject-priority Dynamic AF mode, the camera automatically selects the focus area
with the closest subject, so you can concentrate on shutter timing and shoot at will. This mode
is ideal for candid photography.
◆
Single Area AF mode lets you choose a specific section of the frame (one of the five focus
areas) and designate it is as the primary area for focusing. This mode is ideal for shooting
portraits, landscapes and other stationary subjects.
Focus Tracking with Lock-On
Thanks to Nikon’s unique overlap Servo method, the N80’s Focus Tracking enables you to focus
continuously on a moving subject. Furthermore, thanks to Lock-On AF, the N80 will continue
to track your main subject during Focus Tracking even if something momentarily blocks it in
the viewfinder, or it moves off of an AF sensor. This feature is ideal for sports or nature
photography where action is often swift and unpredictable.
Focusing Conveniences
◆
◆
Easy system to use, you simply press the
focus area selector in the direction you
want to move the AF sensor, and that area
will then be superimposed in the
viewfinder. Since the system lets you select
the primary AF sensor before the camera is
even at eye level, you can effectively anticipate the action and be ready as you bring
the N80 to eye level.
The N80 incorporates a convenient Vari-Brite Focus Area display system. Once you’ve selected
a focus area, it is automatically superimposed in black in the viewfinder, and momentarily
illuminated in red when you focus on a dark colored or poorly lit subject.
◆ When
ambient light is insufficient for autofocusing, the AF-Assist Illuminator automatically
lights up the subject. This feature works in AF-S mode when the center focus area is selected
or Closest-subject-priority Dynamic AF mode is activated. It allows you to take sharply
focused pictures—even in total darkness.
◆
Activated via Custom Setting #4, On-Demand Grid Lines suggest the best position choices for
pleasing composition as well as help you keep your horizon line straight. Superimposing a
grid over the viewfinder, these horizontal and vertical lines are also helpful for shooting
architectural photography or landscapes that include horizons.

THREE METERING SYSTEMS
10-segment 3D Matrix Metering
10-segment 3D Matrix Metering provides
intelligent image analysis. In addition to
reading brightness, the system analyzes
the ‘atmosphere’ of a scene by taking the
entire image into account. It achieves this
by comparing the exposure information
of the more than 35,000 scenes in the
camera’s database with a complex array of
actual scene conditions, including brightness, contrast, subject-to-camera distance
and the selected focus area. Use of a
database distinguishes this meter from
typical multi-segment meters.
104
Center-Weighted Metering
The meter concentrates 75% of its
sensitivity on the 8mm-diameter circle
while feathering the rest out to the edges,
resulting in excellent overall balance. Ideal
for shooting portraits or other centerdominant subjects.
Spot Metering
Gives you true pinpoint precision. Select
this and the sensing area adjusts to
correspond to the focus area you select
manually. Ideal when individual control
is critical.
Additional Features
◆
When using Continuous Servo AF mode
with film advance mode, the N80 delivers a
film advance speed of 2.5 fps.
◆
Electronic depth-of-field preview button lets
you confirm the zone of sharpest focus (in
all exposure modes) before shooting.
◆
Built-in diopter adjustment enables nearor far-sighted photographers to adjust the
eyepiece diopter from -1.8 to 0.8 DP.
◆
Easy-to-view LCD panel gives you at-aglance access to vital information. It can be
illuminated for viewing in dim lighting.
◆
18 Custom Settings allow you to change the
camera’s default settings and create your
own combination of settings.
◆
Powered by two lithium batteries, use the
optional MB-16 Battery Pack (accepts 4
AA-type alkaline, lithium, Nicad or NiMH
batteries) for extended power performance.
PHOTO - VIDEO - PRO AUDIO
Four Exposure Modes—P, S, A, M
◆ Auto-Multi
Program mode (P) works with each of the N80’s built-in light meters, including
3D Matrix Metering to provide the quickest and simplest exposure control option. Flexible
Program lets you shift the combination of aperture and shutter speed set by P mode.
◆
Use Shutter-Priority (S) mode when you want to stop action in its tracks or blur movement
for creative effect. This mode allows you to select shutter speeds between 30 seconds and
1/4000 of a second. After selecting your desired shutter speed, the N80 automatically selects
the correct aperture.
◆ Aperture-Priority
(A) mode is ideal when you want to explore the uses of depth-of-field. After
selecting the aperture you want, the N80 automatically selects the correct shutter speed for you.
◆
Manual (M) exposure mode gives you total exposure control. You choose both the shutter
speed and aperture. The electronic analog display in the viewfinder and the top-deck LCD
show you the degree of exposure deviation from the metered value.
Exposure Compensation and Auto Exposure Bracketing
◆
To experiment with varying degrees of brightness for an image, you can take pictures of the
same scene with different EV values. Using th exposure compensation button, for example,
you compensate the exposure within a range of ±3 in 1/2 EV increments. Or you can perform
exposure bracketing of two or three frames in 0.5 to 2.0 EV steps with all exposure modes
including Manual.
◆
AE-L (Auto Exposure Lock): Press the AE-L button and the N80 memorizes the metered
exposure value. Use this feature when you want to change the composition or emphasize a
specific part of the picture with center-weighted or spot metering in any automatic exposure
mode.
◆
Multiple Exposure: Set the film advance to multiple exposure to take as many images as you
like on the same frame. When shooting in daylight, some degree of exposure compensation
will be necessary.
Built-in Speedlight and Advanced Flash Modes
The N80’s built-in flash offers coverage for lenses as wide as 28mm and boasts a GN of 39
(ISO 100, ft.) Features include Slow Sync, Rear-Curtain Sync, Red-Eye Reduction and flash
output level compensation.
3D Multi-Sensor
Balanced Fill-Flash System
The 3D Multi-Sensor Balanced Fill-Flash
System analyzes scene brightness, contrast
and subject reflectance to determine precisely the amount of flash needed to create
a well-balanced picture—an instant before
you take the picture. This is achieved by
the camera’s 5-segment TTL Multi Sensor
and monitor pre-flash function.
Flash Output Level Compensation
You can compensate the flash output level
-3 to +1EV in 1/2 steps. This lets you
control the intensity of the flash to create
even more exciting fill-flash photographs.

Slow Sync
Slow Sync flash mode extends the automatically controlled shutter speed range in
P and A exposure modes. Use this feature
to bring out the background details when
shooting in low-light situations, or with an
illuminated background.
Rear-Curtain Sync
With this function, the flash fires just
before the second (or rear) curtain of the
shutter begins to move, unlike normal
sync which fires the flash at the beginning
of the exposure. This creates a streamof-light effect that follows the flashilluminated subject.

CAMERAS & LENSES
35mm SLR Autofocus Camera
For generations, Nikon cameras have allowed professional photographers to achieve maximum performance day-in and day-out.
Performance they can count on, shot after shot. Designed to provide
professional photographers with everything they need — in the studio
and on assignment—the compact and rugged F100 delivers. It makes
precise, responsive Dynamic Autofocus so fast, that images literally
snap into focus. It also works perfectly with every AF Nikkor lens, AFS Nikkor, AI-S Nikkor and more.
It features Nikon’s 3D Matrix Metering while Nikon’s automatic
balanced fill-flash system is uncanny at showing up that touch of
extra light for perfect exposures and cover page pictures. For extra
dependability, the chassis, top, bottom and front covers, and selected parts are constructed of rugged yet lightweight magnesium
alloy metal. Last, 22 custom settings and a host of accessories make the F100 a clear choice in 35mm systems.
The heart of the F100’s AF system is the Multi-CAM AF module. Creatively aligned Wide-Cross Array Sensor design makes autofocus
operation fast, whether you hold the camera horizontally or vertically. For creative composition, especially for action photography, you can
choose any of the F100’s AF sensors as a primary sensor; so you’re never locked into using just the center sensor for a first AF reading.
Dynamic Autofocus
Three Metering Systems
10-segment 3D Matrix Metering:
10-segment 3D Matrix Metering provides
intelligent image analysis. In addition to
reading brightness, the system analyzes the
‘atmosphere’ of a scene by taking the entire
image into account. It achieves this by comparing the exposure information of the more
than 35,000 scenes in the camera’s database
with a complex array of actual scene conditions, including brightness, contrast, subjectto-camera distance and the selected focus
area. Use of a database distinguishes this
meter from typical multi-segment meters.
Nikon’s exclusive Dynamic Autofocus gives you the ability to capture the key
moments, the exciting action shots that make the image special. Dynamic AF
automatically follows moving objects as they cross the frame and move along five
strategically placed focus areas. Should your subject move off the selected area,
accurate autofocus in ensured by Nikon’s Lock-On feature.
◆
Nikon’s AF system simultaneously detects
focus and drives the lens. The result is
extremely precise focusing that operates
smoothly and quickly frame after frame, for
every frame.
◆
Focus tracking is automatically activated
when your subject starts to move, regardless
of direction, and it operates at framing rates
up to 4.5 fps (frames per second). Using the
optional MB-15 Multi-Power High-Speed
Battery Pack, the F100 achieves speeds up
to 5 fps. If the main subject wanders off the
AF sensor area during focus tracking operation, or if something momentarily blocks
the sensor’s view, Lock-On is automatically
activated and the F100 continues to track
the subject, maintaining sharp focus.
Center-Weighted Metering:
The meter concentrates 75% of its sensitivity
on the 12mm-diameter circle while feathering the rest out to the edges, resulting in
excellent overall balance. Ideal for shooting
portraits or other center-dominant subjects.
Spot Metering:
When you need pinpoint precision, Spot
Metering reads a 4mm-diameter area (1% of
the image area). The sensing area also adjusts
to correspond to the manually selected focus
area for optimal individual control.
PHOTO - VIDEO - PRO AUDIO
◆
◆
For maximum versatility, the F100 offers
two AF modes. Single Servo AF with focus
priority (AF-S) won’t release the shutter
until complete, sharp focus is achieved.
Continuous Servo AF with release priority
(AF-C) lets you release the shutter
whenever you’re ready. Simply press the
Focus Area Selector Pad to quickly select or
change a focus area.
◆
Manual focusing the F100 is a smooth,
precise operation. It uses no battery power,
so it’s ideal for extending battery life in
power-draining conditions. The F100’s versatile electronic rangefinder simplifies manual focusing when used with lenses having a
maximum aperture of f/5.6 or faster—all
of Nikon’s AF Nikkor lenses.
The F100 comes standard with Nikon’s B-type BriteView screen. You can also choose the
optional E-type screen, which also functions with the F100’s built-in red LED projected display
that highlights the focus detection areas.
NIKON
F100
Four Exposure Modes
◆
Total Exposure Control
Program Auto Exposure mode works with
the 3D Matrix Metering to provide the
quickest, simplest, most-advanced exposure
control. Flexible Program automatically
changes shutter speed and aperture
combinations. When you don’t have time
to make decisions about exposure,
Programmed Auto Exposure takes over.
Exposure Compensation
To experiment with varying degrees of
brightness for an image, you can compensate
exposure up to ±5 EV in 1/3 EV increments.
Or you can perform exposure bracketing of
two or three frames in 1/3 to 1 EV steps
with all exposure modes including Manual.
You can select bracketing with overexposure or under-exposure only, too. For
flash photography, the flash output level
also varies. Custom Setting allows bracketing
for either background exposure or flash
exposure for flash photography.
Aperture-Priority mode is ideal when you
want to explore the uses of depth-of-field.
For shooting portraits or other scenes
where you want a shallow depth-of-field,
try larger apertures. For more depth
sharpness, as in scenic photography, use
smaller apertures.
Multiple Exposure
◆
Use Shutter-Priority mode when you want
to select shutter speeds manually in 1/3 EV
steps—great for stopping action in its
tracks or blurring movement for creative
effect. The F100 automatically selects the
correct aperture in 1/3 EV increments to
match the selected shutter speed. You can
also customize exposure settings in 1/3, 1/2
or 1 EV steps.
The F100 can memorize the metered
exposure value with focus lock. Use
AE-L when you want to change the
composition or emphasize a specific part
of the picture with center-weighted or
spot metering in any automatic exposure
mode. Can also be used without activating focus lock (using custom settings).
All-Mode
Depth-of-field Preview
When using an AF Nikkor or AI-type
Nikkor lens, the viewfinder image is set
to maximum aperture. Pressing the
depth-of-field preview button stops the
lens down electrically to the aperture
set in any exposure mode. This lets you
examine the zone of sharpest focus
before shooting. Custom Settings allow
changes of ±1/2 or 1 EV steps.
Multiple Power Sources
◆
The F100 is powered by 4 AA-type alkaline or lithium batteries. The optional MS-13 Battery
Holder allows the camera to operate with two CR-123A lithium batteries, while the MS-12
holds 2 AA batteries. The optional MB-15 Power Pack accepts 6AA alkaline or lithium batteries as well as the MN-15 NiMH Battery Unit.
◆
The F100 has two Command Dials and a focus area selector to give you access to most features. Lock selected controls to prevent inadvertent switching. All controls are easy to operate
and logically positioned for fast, easy operation.
◆
22 Custom Settings enables you to choose among customized combinations of various functions/modes and two Command Dials provide access to more versatile functions. Settings
allow you bypass the F100’s defaults and create your own combination of settings. Change
bracketing order, Command Dial functions, AE-L/AF-L button function, self-timer duration
and more.
◆
The F100’s front body and top and bottom covers are made of rugged, armor-like magnesium
alloy that provides the rigidity and strength needed to maintain precise alignment. Critical
surface areas are covered with tough rubber surfaces textured to provide a secure grip and
buffer against impact and harsh environments.
◆
Durable shutter (passed Nikon’s 100,000 cycle test) and strategically placed O-rings guard
against moisture and dust.
◆
Quick-return mirror is specially designed to help reduce mirror bounce and vibration. Coreless
motors and gears are configured in a floating-type design for quiet operation. With rubberarmored, shock-absorbing construction, these motors work to minimize internal vibration.
Intuitive Operation
Rugged Construction
◆
Manual mode provides complete control
over exposure. Choose both the shutter
speed and aperture using the F100’s built-in
meters as guides for optimal exposure. The
electronic analog exposure display appears
in the viewfinder and top deck LCD panel.
This shows the exposure deviation from
the metered value.

3D Multi-Sensor Balanced Fill-Flash
works with the camera’s meters, and
each of the exposure control modes.
With a 5-segment TTL multi-sensor, the
F100 delivers sophisticated exposure
control under any conditions. It precisely monitors flash output using a segmentation pattern that conforms to the classic rules of composition. The five segments enable optimum exposure control, even after the composition has
changed and the subject is no longer at
the original focus sensor point. Nikon’s
5-segment sensor covers the entire
frame, providing better flash exposure
for a wider range of compositions.
For flash photos at slower shutter speeds,
Slow Sync balances the exposure of
background and foreground subjects.
Slow Sync extends the automatic shutter
speed to the full range of available shutter speeds from 1/250 to 30 seconds.
The F100 offers a top TTL flash sync
speed of 1/250 second for automatic balanced fill-flash even with the fastest
moving subjects—and sharp images
with longer lenses. A wider choice of
apertures offers more creative control,
and lets you shoot over a wider range of
ambient light conditions.
◆
Rear-Curtain Sync produces a stream of
ambient light behind the flash illuminated subject—especially effective when
slow shutter speeds are used.
◆
FP High-Speed sync up to 1/4000 second
means you can make fill-flash pictures
even in bright daylight, and still maintain wide aperture settings for expanded
control of depth of field.
◆
Before the shutter is released, Nikon’s
red-eye reduction lamp (on most
Speedlights) lights up to reduce red-eye.
This mode can be used with Slow Sync.

F5
35mm SLR Autofocus Camera
The F5’s combination of speed and accuracy have made it the
top choice for sports and action photographers as well as photojournalists
◆
◆
◆
The F5 offers Single Servo mode for singleframe autofocus or Continuous Servo AF
operation at motor speeds up to 8 frames
per second (fps) with full AF operation and
Lock-On. This means that frame-afterframe—up to 8 frames per second, the F5’s
AF system precisely captures the subject—
stationary or moving, centered or off-center, coming from left, right, top or bottom,
even if there is a momentary interruption
from another subject.
◆
The F5’s 5-segment AF sensor features a
wide-area, cross-type design. In horizontal
compositions, a complete line of sensors
addresses subjects moving across the field
of view. When the camera is held vertically,
the cross-type design provides a line of
sensors that follows the action. This sensor
system works with every AF Nikkor lens.
◆
The F5 has a complete system of extremely
reliable micro-electronics and mechanical
components to provide ultra-fast operation. As subjects move quickly about the
scene, the F5’s micro-computers instantaneously process data. Coreless motors
respond in milliseconds to drive the lens,
the shutter opens and the film advances as
you shoot at continuous speed up to 8 fps
with autofocus. Even the mirror is designed
to provide rock-steady AF operation.
In Dynamic AF mode, simply select the
primary sensor (center, left, right, top or
bottom) that best suits your composition.
If your subject moves within the frame, the
F5 automatically changes sensor to keep
your subject tack sharp.
The F5’s exceptional AF performance isn’t
limited to average conditions—it excels
under different conditions, like up-close. As
a moving subject comes closer, the rate of
change of the distance accelerates—and
that’s a problem for most AF systems: they
can’t keep up. The F5 keeps up at even closer
distances than any other camera system.
◆
In addition to Dynamic AF operation, the
F5 provides a Single Area AF mode. It’s
like having a choice among five carefully
positioned AF spot sensors. The selected
focus area is indicated on the LCD and the
focusing screen.
◆
Choose Single Servo AF and shoot one
frame at a time; use Continuous Servo AF
for quick-changing situations. Either way,
you’ll get fast and accurate response, with
sharpness you can see. You get Focus
Tracking, in all AF modes, automatically
activated when the F5 senses that the
subject is moving. Nikon’s Focus Tracking
with Lock-On overcomes momentary
interruptions in focus. When you want to
focus manually, the accurate and versatile
Electronic Rangefinder can guide you.
◆
For times when you want AF operation
activated separately from the shutter release
button, use the F5’s AF start buttons—one
button for horizontal, one for vertical
handling. It’s perfect for sports and other
fast-action shooting because it lets you to
concentrate solely on shutter release timing.
◆
The F5’s built-in motor quickly rewinds the
film: 4 seconds for a 36-exposure roll with
the MN-30 NiMH battery, 6-seconds with
fresh AA alkaline or lithium batteries—at
normal temperatures. Film can also be
rewound by hand.

◆
◆
◆
◆
The F5’s 3D Color Matrix Meter incorporates a 1,005-pixel RGB sensor that actually
evaluates a scene’s colors, while AF Nikkor
lenses with Distance Signal technology
provide information to the meter about
the quality and and quantity of the light
falling on the subject. When the F5 is used
with the SB-800 Speedlight, a monitor preflash measures subject reflectance, a key
element in determining exposure.
The matrix meter evaluates all these factors, weighing them against a database of
30,000 images. Powerful Nikon software
controls the entire system, integrating all
the data to ensure the utmost in exposure
accuracy. The results are automatic exposure control that will astonish you.
The F5’s center-weighted
meter concentrates 75% of
its sensitivity within the
viewfinder’s 12mm circle,
25% in the peripheral
area—but the meter allows
you to change the size of that circle to 8mm,
15mm, or 20mm to provide maximum
metering versatility.
Unequalled Versatility
◆
– Programmed Auto mode automatically sets
the shutter speed and aperture, while Flexible
Program mode allows you to shift the shutter
speed and aperture combination while maintaining the correct exposure.
Using Custom Setting #20 with Shutter
Priority or Manual mode, the F5’s top flash
sync speed is boosted to 1/300 of a second,
expanding the camera’s exposure range for
fill-flash shooting.

Make as many
images on the
same frame as
you wish. You
can even
combine Multiple Exposure Control with
Exposure Bracketing and/or Exposure
Compensation to achieve a variety of incamera special effects.
◆
You can change the way the F5 operates by
choosing from the camera’s 24 built-in
custom settings, which are selected using
the convenient Main Command Dial.
Optional backs for the F5 allow imprinting data on slides; interval timing; long
exposure programming (up to 999 hours);
and Freeze Focus, in which the shutter is
automatically released the moment the
subject enters the zone of focus.
◆
The F5’s exposure management system
combines the benefits of automatic operation and manual control. Choose from
four film advance modes: Single (S), LowSpeed Continuous (CL), for up to approximately 3 fps; High-Speed Continuous
(CH), for up up to 8 fps; and Silent mode
(CS), for near-silent operation at approximately 2 fps. Custom settings provide
additional choices of motor speed rates.
– Shutter Priority mode gives you a choice of
speeds from 1/8000 second to 30 seconds.
– Aperture Priority mode offers a range of
apertures in 1/3-stop increments.
– Manual mode turns total control of the exposure over to you.
◆
For the highest level of exposure control,
choose among the F5’s five spot meters.
Corresponding in position to the five
sensor areas for dynamic autofocus, the
F5’s spot meter system provides precise
metering concentration (4mm-diameter
area) based on your personal exposure
choices for the scene and the subject.
Five-segment TTL Multi-Sensor precisely
monitors flash output. Imperceptible monitor pre-flashes from Nikon Speedlights
and distance information from D-type AF
Nikkor lenses help overcome exposure failure with highly reflective surfaces, distant
backgrounds, outdoor fill-flash and surfaces that don’t have 18% reflectance. You
can use the F5’s fill-flash power together
with highly automatic exposure control, or
control exposure manually. Either way, you
still get the the proven performance of
Nikon’s exclusive 3D Multi-Sensor balanced fill-flash.
The F5 offers a wide selection of exposure
control and compensation choices. There’s
EV compensation, AF and AE Lock controls
and four exposure control systems, including
Program AE, Shutter and Aperture Priority
as well as full manual control plus flexible
program control.
You can manually control exposure compensation from ±5 EV in 1/3 EV steps. Auto
Bracketing is built-in and allows you to take
two or three consecutive pictures of the same
scene while changing EV values in increments of 1/3, 2/3 and 1 EV. You can also
select the order of the compensation, such as
making the first image of the sequence with
no compensation, the second with 1/3 and
third at 2/3 compensation.
The F5 is the fifth in the F series lineup which began with the Nikon F in 1959, followed
by the Nikon F2 in 1971, the Nikon F3 in 1980, and the Nikon F4 in 1988. Each of these
cameras incorporates the finest elements of its predecessors, including the Nikon F
mount, while offering the latest innovations to meet the increasingly diversified needs
of professional photographers. A great number of Nikon F series cameras and Nikkor
lenses are actively working in various locations around the world - years, even decades,
after their initial launch. The Nikon F5 still upholds Nikon's tradition of innovation
and non-obsolescence as the new millennium approaches.
Full Flash Control Modes
◆
The F5 uses five TTL sensors to precisely monitor flash output to offer versatile, capable fillflash performance and total control of how light will affect your photograph. Choose flash
compensation in 1/3 EV steps from ±3 (with SB-800 Speedlight) to ensure natural-looking
images.
◆
The 3D Multi-Sensor Fill-Flash allows a choice of Normal TTL Sync; Slow Sync for blurred
effects; Rear-Curtain Sync (in which the flash fires at the end of the exposure); or sync at
1/300 second for fast moving subjects. In manual mode, you can use FP High-Speed Sync,
which allows flash synchronization at speeds up to 1/4000 of a second.
◆ Automatic
Balanced Fill-Flash provides auto fill-flash for every exposure mode. It will also
operate during automatic exposure bracketing. The F5’s advanced electro-mechanical design,
which features a fast, powerful AF drive motor, provides quick, precise autofocusing.

The Ultimate in Reliability
◆
The viewfinder’s top cover is titanium for
extra resistance to impact. Covering
selected areas of this armor-like structure
are rubber surfaces, textured for secure
holding and for buffering against the
environment and impact.
◆
The grip itself has a textured rubber
surface. Dials and buttons are designed to
resist intrusion by moisture and dust.
◆
The F5’s design has been rigorously tested
to assure reliable performance under
demanding professional conditions. It is
tested to resist moisture and dust. It is
vibration-tested and put through extremes
of temperature.
◆
If you’ve ever experienced shutter failure—
shutters that sound like they’re working
but are not, or that have become inaccurate
due to fatigue and environmental stresses,
you’ll appreciate the F5’s Shutter Monitor.
Temperatures and other conditions affect
shutters, altering their performance. The
Shutter Monitor checks the shutter
everytime it’s released. If speeds begin to
shift from the calibrated speed, the camera
automatically compensates to maintain
an accurate exposure. If in an extreme
instance the shutter fails to operate, the F5
will alert you.
Whisper Quiet Operation
◆
◆
A mirror balancer reduces noise and
vibration. The F5 also has a faster-moving
mirror, so it can keep up with other
high-speed operations, like the motor’s
8 frames per second framing rate and
autofocus speed that keeps pace with
the motor.
Thanks to a floating-type design, the
coreless motors and gears are quieter too.
With their shock-absorber like
construction, they minimize internally
induced vibration. In the continuous
Silent film advance mode, you get quiet
film advance—not just quiet, but also
with a quality of sound that isn’t metallic
or shrill.

CAMERAS & LENSES
35mm Professional SLR
Defining the pinnacle of 35mm SLR photography, the Nikon F6 is the
next-legendary F-series camera. Seamlessly blending cutting-edge technologies and uncompromising craftsmanship, the flagship F6 offers
film enthusiasts the finest shooting experience an SLR camera can
offer. It incorporates Nikon’s latest technological advancements, such
as the Multi-CAM200 11-area AF system for exceptionally high-speed
autofocus operation with outstanding accuracy, the i-TTL Creative
Lighting System for incomparable flash photography, and a newly
refined proprietary 3D Color Matrix Metering system for improved
accuracy in scene recognition and exposure.
The camera also incorporates a new shutter unit crafted from DuPont
Kevlar and a special aluminum alloy for unparalleled reliability, lightening-quick movement and precision. Constructed on
an aluminum-alloy die-cast chassis with magnesium-alloy front body and covers (top, bottom) and strategically placed rubber surfaces, the F6 is built like a tank, and underwent many reliability and rigidity tests to ensure flawless performance.
The F6 also features a variety of exciting, innovative control options such as a customizable function button, 41 custom settings, built-in data back functions, shooting data memory and compatibility with a new Multi Power Battery Pack
MB-40. This new power pack boosts the camera’s framing rate from a native 5.5 frames per second to a full 8 frames per
second, allowing Nikon engineers to reduce the size of the F6 significantly from the F5.
Last, Nikon engineers successfully subdued the camera’s operational sounds by using a professional echoic chamber to measure
sound and vibration meticulously and then craft the camera with parts that have been highly refined for absolute minimum
vibration, and frequency of movement attenuated to a level below that detectable by the human ear.
Camera Ergonomics
In their quest for new levels of ergonomic
achievement, Nikon left no part of the camera’s
exterior ignored. The first time you handle the
F6, you’re seduced by the strikingly comfortable,
ergonomic design. Every curve, every undulation
has been accomplished through advanced
computer-aided design. But that’s just the tip of
the iceberg. Nikon spent unprecedented amounts
of time sculpting the
contours of the
grip, to ensure
greater
comfort and
balance in
the hand
even during
extended use.
The button and dial
design and layout are every bit as intelligent as
they are attractive.
PHOTO - VIDEO - PRO AUDIO
Built to Last
To ensure the high level of durability you expect
from a Nikon F series SLR, the F6 has
been subjected to rigorous testing.
Even the lubricants applied to gear
parts are carefully tested to assure peak
performance in extreme temperatures
and high humidity. The F6’s astonishing
reliability is a function of Nikon’s “right
material for the right place” approach.
Our engineers considered countless
situations of potential camera use, then submitted the F6 to real-life testing
to ensure exceptional dependability wherever and whenever you shoot.
Imagine, as a photographer, the places or conditions in which you are most
concerned about the toughness of your photographic tools. Now look at
the F6 — an aluminum alloy die-cast chassis; magnesium-alloy front body
and covers (top, bottom); strategically placed rubber surfaces; an easy-togrip texture, and a shutter that has undergone testing to assure accurate
release up to and beyond 150,000 cycles. The F6 features the strength,
rigidity and durability to perform whenever you need it. Put it to the test
and see for yourself.
NIKON
F6
11-Area High-Speed
Autofocus System
Featuring 11 AF sensors — including nine
cross-type sensors which cover the greater
part of the viewing area — the MultiCAM2000 AF sensor module responds
quickly and delivers razor-sharp focus even
in the most challenging situations. The crosstype sensors function with all AF Nikkor
lenses with a maximum aperture of f/5.6 or
faster, and enable enhanced small or lowcontrast subject detection. Furthermore,
large sensors help make possible smooth,
swift AF operation with markedly wider
defocus detection capability.
High-Precision Shutter Unit:
No shutter unit in any other camera comes close to matching the precision of the F6’s
assembly. Created from cutting-edge materials — DuPont Kevlar and a special
aluminum alloy — the blades of the shutter unit offer unparalleled reliability and are
extremely lightweight, for lightning-quick movement. For enhanced accuracy, during
shutter unit development, the movement of the blades is carefully analyzed using a
high-speed video camera and computer simulations, enabling unprecedented precision
even at shutter speeds of up to 1/8,000 second. Shutter accuracy is maintained by the
Shutter Monitor, which scrutinizes every single shutter release. Should the shutter speed
vary even slightly from the calibrated speed, the camera automatically compensates to
maintain accurate exposure.
High-Speed Mirror Balancing:
Dynamic AF Operation
Minimized Operational Sound and Vibration:
Nikon engineers were so intent on subduing the camera’s operational sounds that they
used a professional audio room to properly gauge the sound quality and frequency.
The degree to which every part of the camera would be subjected was measured.
The implementation of floating-type designs for the shutter unit, aperture control
mechanics and shutter charge motor have significantly suppressed internal vibrations.
This approach has resulted in virtually noise-free movement, diminished to levels
unheard of with other SLR cameras. The F6 has been refined for absolute minimum
vibration, to levels below detection by the human ear.
3D Color Matrix Metering
The F6’s 3D Color Matrix Metering offers
enhanced precision thanks largely to an
improved scene-detecting algorithm. It
analyzes numerous aspects of the scene
conditions — including brightness, contrast,
selected focus area, subject-to-camera
distance and color — and compares them
to the reference information of more than
30,000 actual scenes in the database, ensuring
super-precise exposure control and faithfully
preserving the ambience of the scene.
Flexible Center-Weighted
and Spot Metering
Nikon’s own flexible center-weighted metering provides you with the option of selecting
the size of the sensing area in Custom
Settings. Spot metering changes to correspond with the focus area you’ve selected.
Highly Efficient Mechanics:
The F6 marks the first time 3D computer movement analysis has ever been applied to
an SLR. This technique reveals the degree of power distributed to or generated by
particular components in specific directions. This made it possible for Nikon to
optimize the mechanical operation of the camera with fewer parts, leading to lower
power consumption and higher durability.

A sophisticated mirror balance mechanism reduces the time required to lower the
mirror. The F6’s Mirror Balancer, in addition to minimizing mirror bounce, extends
viewing time, allowing more time for AF operation — this is one reason the F6 can
offer autofocus and Focus Tracking at motor speeds of up to 8fps, shot after wonderful
shot. In conjunction with the bright, easy-to-view 0.74x viewfinder, the Mirror Balancer
provides distinct advantages that give you sharper views whenever and wherever the
moment happens to occur.
Even when shooting a moving subject, the
F6’s Dynamic AF ensures highly precise
focusing, by shifting rapidly to the focus area
to which the subject has moved. In Dynamic
AF mode, one of three available modes, you
can assign top priority to the most suitable
focus area for your composition. Engage
Closest-Subject-Priority Dynamic AF mode
to have the F6 select the appropriate area for
you. For optimum results when attempting
to capture a moving subject, use Group
Dynamic AF mode. Select several adjacent
focus areas (center, top, bottom, left, right),
and the camera automatically focuses on the
center focus area of the selected areas.

Advanced Wireless Lighting
Wireless multiple flash can be performed just
as easily as with an on camera Speedlight,
affording you the freedom to explore the limitless creative potential of the system. You can
also enjoy comprehensive control over scene
lighting when using Nikon’s i-TTL
Speedlights SB-800/SB-600 as they can be
separated into as many as four groups (the
master* and three i-TTL Speedlight groups).
Control independent flash mode settings and
adjustment of compensation values for each
group’s flash output level via the master. To
pre-check a scene for illumination and shadows, there’s the Modeling Flash function.
Each group can comprise as many speedlights
as you want, virtually putting you in total
command of background lighting.
(*The SB-600 cannot be used as a master unit.)
Auto FP High-Speed Sync
Enables fill-flash photography even in bright
conditions at wide apertures with shallow
depth of field unhindered by the standard
1/250 second flash sync. Once the mode is
activated, the F6’s rapid flash synchronization
makes available shutter speeds faster than the
camera’s flash sync speed.

Nikon’s legendary lens mount compatibility
allows you to use any Nikkor lens in the
incredibly deep, varied lineup. Even with
older non-CPU lenses, Color Matrix
Metering can still be performed after programming the lens’ focal length and maximum aperture in the camera’s memory. The
F6 can store this data for as many as ten nonCPU lenses at a time.
The F6 supports the i-TTL Flash Control
system, providing outstanding results and
myriad creative possibilities. Nikon’s Creative
Lighting System, the most advanced flash
control system anywhere, uses a new
algorithm and a brighter, shorter Monitor
Pre-flash to lift the precision of i-TTL
Balanced Fill-Flash even beyond that of
Nikon’s acclaimed 3D Multi-Sensor Balanced
Fill-Flash systems. Furthermore, the Creative
Lighting System allows you to employ
advanced flash techniques including Advanced

CAMERAS & LENSES
Creative Lighting Made Easy
Innovative Nikon technology has continuously revolutionized flash photography. Trailblazing innovations like Matrix
Balanced Fill-Flash, 3D Multi-Sensor Balanced Fill-Flash, 5-Segment TTL Sensor, Distance Integration and Monitor
Pre-Flash have opened new territory in speedlight functionality. Nikon speedlights let you shoot complex lighting
situations with confidence, so in dim light, or even where there’s no light at all, you can flex your creative muscles and
always be assured of great looking pictures.
3D Multi-Sensor Balanced Fill-Flash
Slow Sync
FP High-Speed Sync
The most advanced automatic balanced fillflash technique. The camera precisely sets
the appropriate flash output level using the
TTL Multi Sensor which detects the monitor
pre-flashes the speedlight flashes to ‘test’ the
scene just before making the exposure.
Slow sync extends the automatically
controlled shutter speed range, thus enabling
the background details to stand out.
With this feature, the flash output
continues once the shutter curtain opens
until it is fully closed. This allows flash
synchronization with shutter speeds from
1/250 to 1/4000 sec.
Rear-Curtain Sync
Rear-curtain sync turns available light into
a stream of light that follows the flashilluminated subject. This is especially
effective at slow shutter speeds.
Matrix Balanced Fill-Flash
120
In this technique, the matrix meter adjusts
exposure for the background and then the
flash exposure is controlled. This is done
to balance the flash illumination so that it
doesn’t overpower the foreground subject.
Red-Eye Reduction
Red-eye reduction lamp lights up in
advance to contract the subject’s pupils,
thus reducing the appearance of red-eye.
AF-Assist Illuminator
Nikon AF Speedlights incorporates an
autofocus illuminator which projects
an LED pattern of light on the subject
making it possible to take sharp
autofocus pictures even in total darkness.
SB-30
The SB-30 is a versatile speedlight that offers photographers creative lighting ability in a simple,
compact, and lightweight design. Weighing only 3.2 ounces, the SB-30 was designed to be ultracompact, so that photographers could keep it on the camera nearly all the time, matching the
advantages of a built-in speedlight. Plus, it's automatic features offer creativity, while built-in
slave flash sensor makes it an excellent second or third flash for multiple flash photography.
Compact, lightweight and versatile TTL speedlight, the SB-30 is ideal as a primary flash for
wide-aperture fill flash scenarios where not much pop is needed, or for macro work.
◆
Works seamlessly with Nikon SLR cameras
that feature TTL control, all digital SLR
cameras, and select Coolpix cameras
◆
The SB-30 covers a wide-angle area of
28mm, and can cover up to 17mm with the
built-in wide flash filter.
◆
◆
To make it less obtrusive, the flash’s shoe
allows the flash to be rotated down by 50°,
nearly flush with the camera top.
◆
Has a guide number of 52 (at 28mm
setting, ISO 100), and a recycle time of
four seconds in full power manual mode
(with fresh batteries).
– Built-in wireless mode lets the SB-30 fire
synchronously, triggered from as far as 23´
(auto mode) or 131´ (manual mode) by
other speedlights.
◆
Flash can be rotated down by 50°, nearly
flush with the camera top. The downward
tilt makes it well suited for on-camera
close-ups (up to 3.3´ from the subject).
◆
At 3.2 ounces, you can mount this speedlight on a camera and shoot comfortably,
without noticing a significant change in
camera weight and handling.
– Using its built-in infrared filter, the SB-30
can act as a remote commander for
triggering other Nikon speedlights during a
multiple flash set-up.
◆
A safety lock system ensures that the SB-30
is tightly fastened to the camera in use.

CAMERAS & LENSES
AF NIKKOR LENSES
When it comes to choosing photographic equipment, perhaps the most
important decision a photographer faces is which lens system to use. For
the majority of professional photographers, that choice is simple: Nikkor.
The reasons for this are many, not the least of which is Nikon’s total commitment to controlling every aspect of lens manufacturing. This no-compromise attitude toward manufacturing extends performance. For each
Nikkor lens is designed to function seamlessly with Nikon SLRs. This is
exemplified most clearly in the legendary Nikon F mount. Even the most
advanced Nikkor lenses incorporate this standard for its consistency and reliability. This design also ensures that when Nikon
introduces new cameras with revolutionary features such as 3D Color Matrix Metering and Multi-Sensor Balanced FillFlash, you’ll always have an array of lenses available to handle these advances.
AF D-type Nikkor Lenses
Internal Focusing
AF Nikkor D-type lenses are special because they relay subject-to-camera distance information to AF Nikon camera bodies that use the information. This makes possible new technologies like Nikon’s 3D Color
Matrix Metering and 3D Multi-Sensor Balanced Fill-Flash.
Imagine being able to focus a lens without it changing in size. Nikon’s
IF technology enables just that. All internal optical movement is limited
to the interior of the non-extending lens barrel. This allows for a more
compact, lightweight construction as well a closer focusing distance.
Aspherical Lens Elements
Nikon introduced the first photographic lens with aspherical lens elements in 1968. Aspherical lenses minimize the problem of coma and
other types of lens distortion—even when used at the widest aperture.
They are particularly useful in correcting the distortion in wide-angle
lenses. In addition, use of aspherical lenses contributes to a lighter and
smaller and lens design.
ED Glass
Nikon developed ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass to make telephoto
lenses that offer superior sharpness and color correction by minimizing
chromatic aberration. (Chromatic aberration is a type of image and
color distortion that occurs when light rays of varying wavelengths pass
through optical glass). ED lenses deliver stunning sharpness and contrast even at their largest maximum apertures.
Nikon Integrated Coating (NIC)
To enhance the performance of lens elements, Nikon employs sophisticated multi-layer coating to help reduce ghost and flare to negligible
levels. Nikon Integrated Coating (NIC) minimizes reflections over a
wide wavelength range, and enhances color balancing. It is carefully
integrated into the design of each Nikkor lens type, with the coatings
calculated to match the lens type and glass.
Close-Range Correction System
Providing superior picture quality at close focusing distances and
increasing the close focus range, the Close-Range Correction (CRC)
system is one of Nikon’s most important focusing innovations. With
CRC, the lens elements are configured in “floating element” design
wherein each lens group moves independently to achieve focusing. This
ensures superior lens performance even when shooting very close.
PHOTO - VIDEO - PRO AUDIO
www.bhphotovideo.com
Rear Focusing (RF)
With Nikon’s Rear Focusing (RF) system, all the lens elements are
divided into specific groups, with only the rear lens group moving
to conduct focusing. As with IF, this technique makes autofocusing
operation smoother and faster.
AF-S Technology
AF-S lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM) which converts
“traveling waves” into rotational energy to focus the optics. This
enables high-speed autofocusing that’s extremely accurate and quiet.
M/A Mode
AF-S lenses also feature Nikon’s exclusive M/A mode, that allows
switching from autofocus to manual operation with virtually no time
lag – even during AF servo operation.
Vibration Reduction System
Stability is critical for telephoto and close-up photography. Nikon
Vibration Reduction (VR) technology automatically compensates for
camera shake to ensure sharp pictures at slower shutter speeds. If you
can steadily hand-hold at 1/125 second, VR will enable you to shoot at
about 1/15 second. The system even automatically detects and compensates for panning when the camera is following a moving subject.
AF DC-Nikkor Lenses
A set of unique lenses for unique portraits, exclusive AF DC (Defocusimage Control) technology allows photographers to control the degree
of spherical aberration in the foreground or background by rotating
the lens’ DC ring. This will create a rounded out-of-focus blur that is
ideal for portrait photography.

AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G IF-ED
The AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G IF-ED lens is designed with
professional and advanced amateur photographers in mind, offering them
a truly compact and lightweight telephoto zoom lens featuring some of
Nikon’s most innovative technologies. With Nikon’s advanced Vibration
Reduction technology, the lens enables photographers to make crisp, sharp
pictures by minimizing the blur caused by hand holding a camera at slow
shutter speeds and by potential shaking when shooting from a moving
vehicle, aircraft or any other moving platform that induces vibration. Other
features include Manual Automatic mode (M/A) which allows for instant
switching between auto and manual focus, virtually eliminating lag time in the
transition and enabling photographers to make a last minute adjustment, even if the
autofocus system has locked onto the subject. This performance is complimented by Nikon’s AF Tracking with Lock-on, a technology
that enables the system to maintain sharp focus even if the subject is momentarily obscured from view, or if the camera’s AF sensor
momentarily moves off the main subject. Includes HB-29 lens hood and CL-M2 case. Filter size is 77mm.
◆
Designed for Nikon cameras with a built in Sub-Command
Dial, G-type design allows aperture control exclusively from the
camera. This facilitates better lens handling, and lets you keep a
more positive grip on the camera as you use your right index
finger to adjust aperture.
◆
Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor technology provides silent
and fast autofocusing with superior accuracy and ultra-quiet
operation.
Distance Technology provides precision distance information
from the lens which is then incorporated into exposure calculations for both ambient light and flash illumination, as well as
combinations of both. This leads to improved exposure control
and enhances the Nikon system for automatic balanced fill flash.

◆
Incorporates Extra Low Dispersion (ED) optical glass enabling
superior performance from this versatile, compact lens.
Through low dispersion characteristics the lens’ color performance is enhanced by virtually eliminated secondary chromatic
aberrations that are common to telephoto optics that don’t have
ED glass; this technology enhances image quality with added
visible sharpness and contrast to the image.
AF VR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 D ED (NI8040045AF)
Now photographers who shoot hand-held, especially in low light conditions can count
on dramatically sharper pictures. Equipped with Nikon’s Vibration Reduction (VR) technology and superior optical design, the AF VR 80-400mm delivers sharp images in otherwise impossible situations. Extending hand-held picture-taking into the realm of photography that usually requires a cumbersome tripod, sports and nature photographers can
concentrate on capturing the hoop shot of the century or the flight of a rare bird knowing
that even if their hand is not steady, the images will be sharper and truer. Includes HB-24
lens hood and CL-M1 case. Filter size is 77mm.
◆
◆
Proprietary VR system detects and compensates for image blur
caused by camera shake. When activated, the system allows
photographers to shoot with ambient light at shutter speeds
that are slower by up to about 3 stops, when compared to the
restrictions of shooting without vibration reduction.
The VR system uses angular speed sensors that detect minute
shifts in camera movement. Data from the sensors is used to
calculate the change in position and drive voice coil motors to
shift the position of the VR lens element.
◆ Automatically
detects shake that takes place during panning in
any direction. And there is no need to stop and reset the lens
for panning action; it happens automatically.
◆
Three ED glass elements reduce secondary chromatic
aberrations and help the lens provide significantly sharper
pictures throughout the 80-400mm zoom range.
◆ Also
features Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating, a nine-blade
diaphragm for rounder more natural highlights, and A/M
switch for fast switching from auto to manual focus.

CAMERAS & LENSES
Circular Polarizers darken the sky without affecting color balance,
cut glare from water and metallic surfaces, and allow shooting
through glass. Their mounts can be rotated for different angles
which you can monitor through the viewfinder. (Note: they
requires a filter hood.) Conversion Filters match film color balances. For example, the A12 shifts the color balance of tungsten
film to daylight. B2 and B8 counteract existing light that is too warm. B12 matches artificial light to
that of daylight film. Yellow filters absorb both blue and UV light so skies appear darker. Use them
to clear up haze around distant objects. Stronger than yellow, Orange tones down blue and green. It
heightens contrast between sky and objects and darkens foliage. Red filters out all colors except red,
so blue skies appear almost black and green leaves darker. Green absorbs red and blue, letting green
and yellow through. The X0 is for general-purpose use. The X1 gives skin a more natural tone.
