a wider range of scenes and subjects in high
resolution. Redesigned architecture offers an ISO
range of 100-51200, expandable up to 204800,
while dual ‘DIGIC 5+’ processors offer a 2-stop
improvement in noise performance. The new
61-point wide-area autofocus system offers even
greater sensitivity, delivering increased precision
and speed. A 100,000 pixel RGB metering sensor
is linked to the AF system and powered by its
own dedicated DIGIC 4 processor, detecting
faces and colour to ensure correct exposure
levels and improved AF tracking.

users to capture truly artistic shots, Basic+ and
Creative Auto modes use plain language to
describe settings and their effect on an image.
Users can also apply different atmospheres to
a scene based on the creative intent or lighting
type or, alternatively, make images lighter,
darker or blur the background to create more
interesting results. The EOS 1100D also offers
720p HD video capture. Compatible with EF and
EF-S lenses.
EOS magazine, Apr-Jun 2011, page 20
Based on the
specifications of
the EOS 60D and
succeeding the
EOS 20Da, the EOS
60Da is ideal for
shooting astronomical
phenomena such as
diffuse nebulae – a
favourite among
astrophotographers
due to the distinct
red colour caused
by the ionisation
of hydrogen. In a
standard DSLR, an
infrared (IR) filter
limits the amount of
Há light that passes
through to the camera
sensor, reducing the
transmission of red
signals to prevent
unwanted colour
artefacts in the final
image. However the
EOS 60Da features a
new modified filter
that offers three times
more transparency
for Há light than the
EOS 60D, combined
with an 18 megapixel
CMOS sensor, DIGIC 4
processing and a high
ISO range to capture
crisp, clear images of
red-coloured emission
nebulae. Available
from specialist
stockists from June
2012.

The Canon/Kodak models
The following cameras were produced jointly
by Canon and Kodak. Much of the digital
technology came from Kodak, with the
camera hardware being provided by Canon.
The DCS (digital camera system) series was
marketed jointly, with both the Canon and
Kodak logos on each camera body. From the
year 2000 onwards, Canon has been in total
control of their digital cameras, providing
both the hardware and the digital systems.
EOS DCS series 1995-1998
The DCS 1, 3 and 5 series used a Kodak digital
film back on the EOS 1N body. The DCS 1 has a 6
megapixel CCD sensor; the DCS 3 a 1.3 megapixel
CCD sensor ; the DCS 5 a 1.5 megapixel CCD
sensor. Each model came in three versions, for
colour, monochrome and infrared monochrome.
The cameras use PCMCIA media cards. A built-in
microphone records .WAV files. The DCS 1 and 3
models were sold by Kodak and Canon. The DCS 5
appears to have been sold only by Kodak and only
in the USA, possibly because it was well-suited to
baseball photography.
EOS D6000 1998-2000
Successor to the EOS DCS 1, again with 6 megapixel
CCD sensor, but with improved digital integration
and higher speed data transfer. Sold in Europe and
the USA as the Kodak DCS 560.
EOS D2000 1998-2001
2 megapixel CCD. Based on the EOS 1N; compatible
with EF lenses and most EOS accessories. 1.8 inch
colour LCD monitor. Continuous shooting capability
of up to 12 frames at 3.5fps. Sold by Kodak as the
DCS 520.

EOS film cameras
Over 20 years of outstanding equipment
There were nearly 40 EOS film cameras. The range was launched with the EOS 650 in 1987 and closed with
the EOS 1V, which was discontinued in 2009. Although none of the film cameras are now current, there is
plenty of choice on the secondhand market as photographers trade-in their cameras for digital models.

Professional
Consumer
Professional cameras are built to be
more durable than other cameras so
that they can withstand the constant
use and rough treatment often given by
professional photographers.
Consumer cameras can be divided into
entry-level and intermediate groups.
The differences are usually in features
and price. However, even some of the
less expensive entry-level models are
now so fully-featured that they will
appeal to photographers of all abilities.

the built-in flash guide number to 13. Manual focus
point selection is now by cross-keys, there is an
AF mode select button, low-light warning, safety
shutter release lock and custom functions.
EOS magazine, September 2004, page 62
EOS 3000 1999-2001
Replacement for the EOS 5000, but actually an
updated version of the EOS 500. No longer an
‘automatic-only’ camera, the EOS 3000 provides a
full range of basic functions, including manual.
EOS magazine, March 1999, page 8
EOS 3000N 2001-2003
Update of the EOS 3000, adding E-TTL autoflash
metering, manual focus point selection, Night
Scene mode and autoexposure bracketing.
Although an entry-level model, it will appeal to
creative photographers on a budget.
EOS magazine, September 2001, page 8
EOS 3000V 2003- 2005
Replacement for the EOS 3000N. In addition to a
new look, there is an improved autofocus speed
and more user-selectable features. The result is an
entry-level camera which offers complete creative
control to the user.
EOS magazine, September 2003, page 64
EOS 5 1992-2002
The world’s first camera with eye-controlled focus
(only operates with camera in horizontal format).
Other features include 16-zone exposure sensor,
1/8000 second shutter speed, 5fps from built-in
motor drive and 16 custom functions. An almostprofessional SLR. The EOS A2, sold in the USA only,
was the same camera without eye-control focus.
Canon User, Autumn 1992, page 4
EOS 50 1995-2000
Similar to EOS 50E (see below), but without eyecontrol focus.
Canon User, September 1995, page 8
EOS 50E 1995-2000
A ‘retro-style’ model with two-tone silver/black
finish. It is Canon’s second camera (after the EOS
5) with eye-control focus, but this now operates in
the vertical format as well as horizontal. Other new
features include a secondary control dial for focus
and film wind modes, plus E-TTL metering when
used with Speedlites 380EX or 220EX.
Canon User, September 1995, page 8
EOS 500 1993-1996
Replacing the EOS 1000 series, this camera offers
no new features, but in 1993 was the world’s
smallest and lightest AF SLR with built-in flash.
Quartz Date version available. The Rebel X, only
sold in the USA, was the same camera without the
built-in flash or metered manual system.
Canon User, September 1993, page 4
EOS 500N 1996-1999
Essentially the EOS 500 given a ‘retro-style’ facelift.
New features include user-selectable focus points,
auto exposure bracketing and a night scene
program mode. E-TTL flash metering is available
with EX-series Speedlites.
Canon User, September 1996, page 9
EOS 5000 1995-1999
An entry-level AF SLR with a full range of AF and
other automatic features, but no manual control.
Canon User, March 1995, page 8
EOS 600 1989-1992
Adds program image control, predictive
autofocusing and custom functions to the EOS
650/620 specifications.
Focus, Spring 1989, page 11
EOS 620 1987-1989
A more highly specified version of the EOS 650.
The top shutter speed is 1/4000 second with
flash synchronization at 1/250 second. This is the
first EOS with a program shift function and auto
exposure bracketing.
Focus, Summer 1987, page 26
EOS 650 1987-1989 Canon’s first EOS camera, introducing the first
new Canon lens mount in over 20 years. The
camera features the latest technologies of the
time, including a super microcomputer and a BASIS
sensor for high-precision autofocusing.
Focus, March 1987, page 18
EOS 700 1990-1991
Features a unique reversible control dial which
switches the camera from program image control
modes (for beginners), to shutter-priority mode (for
more advanced photographers). The EOS 700 was
available with the EF 35-80mm f4-5.6 Power Zoom
lens – two buttons on top of the lens operate a
motorized zoom. This lens was only sold with the
camera. Quartz Date version available.
Focus, Spring 1990, page 15
EOS 750 1988-1990
The first Canon SLR to feature a built-in flash unit.
Exposure is automatic only. The 35-70mm A lens
introduced with the camera does not have the
‘A/M’ switch which allows manual focusing – it is
autofocus only. Quartz Date version available.

EOS RT 1989-1992
RT is for ‘real time’. A fixed semi-translucent reflex
mirror eliminates viewfinder blackout during
exposure. A reduced shutter release delay gives an
exposure closer to the time you press the shutter
button. Other features are similar to the EOS 600 on
which the RT is based.

EOS IX 1996-2002
Canon’s first Advanced Photo System AF SLR. It
uses the EF lens mount and accepts the full range of
lenses from the EOS system. Offers full range of SLR
features (similar specification to EOS 500N). An EOS
IXE model, with eye-control focus, was marketed in
Japan and some other countries, but not the UK.

Canon offers one of the widest ranges of lenses available for any camera system. There are over 60 lenses in
the current range, and well over 100 lenses if you include discontinued items. Most of the lenses carry the
prefix EF, which is an abbreviation for electro-focus. All EF and EF-S lenses offer autofocusing. Only the TS-E
(tilt-and-shift) lenses and the MP-E65 macro lens do not autofocus.

Prime lenses
Image stabilisation
A prime lens has a fixed focal length. 50mm used
to be the most popular prime lens, but most
photographers now obtain this focal length in the
standard zoom often supplied as part of a kit.
In the past, prime lenses offered a significantly
better optical performance than zoom lenses.
Today, while the top prime lenses still out-perform
zooms, the difference is much less marked.
In its current prime range, Canon concentrates
on high performance, wide aperture lenses.
In the main, these are aimed at professional
photographers, with prices to match. The exception
is the 50mm f1.8 II lens, which combines high
performance with low cost.
One of the major causes of poor image quality is
camera shake. If you move the camera during the
exposure, the image is likely to be blurred. In 1995 Canon introduced the world’s first
image stabilizer lens for a 35mm single-lens reflex
camera. The technology uses tiny gyro motors
which sense the slightest movement of the lens.
This data is fed to a mini computer which controls
the movement of a special element in the lens. This
element moves in response to lens and camera
movement to keep the image stationary. Using
image stabilisation is equivalent to setting a shutter
speed up to four steps faster.
Zoom lenses
By far the most popular lenses today are zooms.
These offer a range of focal lengths in one lens –
18mm to 55mm, for example. The zoom ratio is
found by dividing the maximum focal length by the
minimum. This gives a ratio of approximately 1:3
for an 18-55mm lens. The 35-350mm lens has a
ratio of 1:10.
The main advantage of a zoom lens is
convenience – one zoom lens can replace two or
three non-zoom (or ‘prime’) lenses.
L-series lenses
If you want the ultimate in lens performance and
durability, look for the ‘L’ designation at the end of
the lens name. This stands for luxury. These lenses
are manufactured using the very latest in lens
technology, including elements made from fluorite
crystal and ultra-low dispersion (UD) glass.
L-series lenses tend to have the widest
maximum apertures – and the highest prices.
However, do not assume that only L-series lens
will give top quality images. Results from lenses
such as the EF 50mm f1.8 II, EF 85mm f1.8 USM and
EF 100mm f2 USM are equally good, even though
their durability may be below L-series standards.
L-series lenses can be identified by the bright
red line around the front of the lens barrel.
Special lenses
Ultrasonic motor
Another feature to look for in EF lenses is the USM
– ultrasonic motor. This is the motor which drives
the autofocusing. Non-USM lenses use an arc form
drive (AFD) motor. This is good, but the USM is
faster and quieter.
Some EF lenses allow Full-time Manual
focusing (FTM). This allows you to manually
refocus the lens as soon as One-shot AF control
is completed without switching the focus mode
switch to manual focus. FTM is very useful if you
need to fine-tune the focus in macro or supertelephoto photography.
Diffractive element
A recent lens innovation from Canon is the Multilayer Diffractive Optical Element (DO).
A single diffractive element is not suitable for
lens use because it creates flare. However, Canon
has discovered that combining two diffractive
elements in a single lens cancels out the flare.
At the moment, the main advantage of the
multi-diffractive element is that it reduces the
length of telephoto lenses, a benefit mostly of
interest to professional photographers travelling
abroad on assignments. DO lenses are identified by
a green line round the lens barrel..
Canon is one of the few camera manufacturers to
offer a range of tilt-and-shift (TS-E) lenses. These
allow you to angle the plane of focus rather than
keeping it parallel to the film or digital sensor,
giving much greater control over depth-of-field
and allowing unusual creative effects. You can also
move the axis of the lens away from the centre
of the frame for greater control of verticals in
architectural photography.
Another special lens is the MP-E 65mm f2.8
1-5x Macro. As the name suggests, this provides
magnifications from 1x to 5x. It is the only EOS lens
which does not focus to infinity.
Lenses for digital
All EF lenses fit all EOS cameras, both film and
digital. However, most digital EOS cameras have a
sensor which is smaller than the 35mm film frame.
On these cameras, the lens has a narrower field-ofview, giving it a greater telephoto effect than when
used on 35mm models. This is good for telephoto
lens users, but restricts the range for wide-angle
lens users.
The only lenses listed which will not fit all
EOS models are the EF-S zooms. These have been
specially designed for the EOS 20D and later APS-C
format models. These cameras will, however, also
accept all the EF lenses in the EOS system.
Guide to lens charts on the following pages
If you have an EOS camera we will help you to master the
controls and improve your pictures. Every 84-page issue of
EOS magazine is packed with know-how, advice and
inspirational images.
In addition to the magazine, we publish this guide
– an annual listing of every EOS camera, lens and accessory
introduced since the system was launched in 1987.
EOS magazine hosts a popular forum and a classified advert
site. You can also sign up to our free e-mail newsletter which
keeps you up-to-date with the latest EOS products and firmware
updates, news, promotions and much more.

EVERYTHING EOS 2011
As far as we know, the charts on the
following pages list every EF lens
manufactured since the range was
introduced in 1987. If you come across any EF
lens not shown here, please let us know.
Const. shows the construction of the lens as
elements/groups. It used to be the case that lenses
with more elements had higher performances
(each additional element gave greater correction
of lens aberrations). However, the increased use of
computers in lens design, along with fluorite and
UD glass elements, means that high performance is
now possible with fewer elements.
Min. ap. is the minimum aperture (the maximum
aperture is shown in the lens name). The aperture
may vary with the zoom setting.
Bld. is the number of blades used to construct the
diaphragm (this can affect the lens ‘Bokeh’ – see
EOS magazine March 1998 page 56)
Cl. foc. is the closest focusing distance
Mag. is the maximum magnification
Filter is the filter size or type
Size shows the dimensions of the lens – max.
diameter x length
Weight is the weight of the lens
Hood, Hard case and Pouch show the reference
number of these accessories (where available)
Introd. is the month and year the lens was
introduced
Price is the suggested retail price (inclusive of VAT)
from the April 2012 Canon UK price guide. Dealers
often sell at lower prices. If a price is not given, the
lens is discontinued, but may be available on the
second-hand market.
While every effort has been made to avoid errors
or omissions, you should not make significant
purchase decisions based solely on the content of
this guide.
Filter rotation
The front element of some zoom lenses rotates
during focusing, which means that an attached
filter will also rotate. This can be inconvenient if you
are using a polarizing filter, or any other filter which
changes its effect with the angle of rotation.
Lenses with a rotating front element are indicated
in the list by the symbol ‘R’ after the filter size. Front
elements which do not rotate are indicated by the
symbol ‘NR’. Where no symbol is given, we do not
currently have information about rotation. None of
the fixed focal length EF lenses has a rotating front
element.
Lens version
Roman numerals after the lens name indicate the
version number. Zoom lenses in particular are often
updated, usually becoming smaller and lighter.
Lens performance
If you are looking for ultimate lens performance,
buy an L-series lens (look for the ‘L’ at the end of the
lens designation). These use state-of-the-art design
and materials to combine wide apertures with high
resolution.

Zoom lenses
A range of focal lengths in one lens
Zooms are the biggest group in the range of Canon EOS lenses and certainly the most popular. Wide-angle
zooms have a maximum focal length below 50mm (20-35mm, for example). Standard zooms include 50mm in
the range (28-90mm, for example). Telephoto zooms have a range which starts above 50mm (70-200mm, for
example) or extends above 300mm (35-350mm, for example). See page 9 for guide to listings.
www.eos-magazine.com
EF zoom lenses (see opposite page for IS zoom lenses)
Zooms give a range of focal lengths in a single lens, replacing a number of non-zoom lenses. The EF 24-70mm and EF 70-300mm lenses, for example, might cover all your needs.

EF image stabilisation (IS) zoom lenses
Built-in gyros control an image stabiliser group of elements. These shift in response to movement and reduce the effects of camera shake. “Stops’ (first column in table) indicates the approximate
advantage given by the lens; for example, 3 stops means that – with IS on – you can shoot with a shutter speed three stops slower than with IS off and obtain similar results in terms of image sharpness.

EF-S zoom lenses (including EF-S image stabilisation lenses)
These lenses are designed for the lens mount of the EOS 7D, 20D, 30D, 40D, 50D, 60D, 300D, 350D, 400D, 450D, 500D, 550D, 600D, 1000D and 1100D digital cameras. EF lenses also fit these cameras,
but EF-S lenses will not fit other EOS cameras – the lenses have a shorter back focus and smaller coverage than EF lenses.

Tripod mount rings
A tripod mount ring is a collar
which encircles and grips the barrel
of a lens. The base of the ring has
a built-in tripod bush. Rings are
available for some of the longer EF
lenses, allowing you to fit the tripod
under the lens rather than under the
camera. This gives a better balance
to the set-up, reducing the risk of the
weight of the lens tilting the camera
forwards.

Lens Mount Converter FD-EOS
Allows Canon FD mount lenses to be used on
EOS cameras (autofocus does not operate). A lens
element in the converter enables infinity focusing
with FD lenses.
Macro lens Mount Converter
FD-EOS
Allows FD mount close-up accessories, such as
the Auto Bellows, to be used on EOS cameras.
Does not include a lens element so infinity
focusing is not possible if attached to FD lenses.
Throughout this supplement the names of current products are printed in BLACK and those of discontinued products in VIOLET.

Non-zoom lenses
Wide apertures and high performance
Zooms have taken over the main lens market, leaving the non-zoom (prime) lenses to meet the demands of
professional and high-end enthusiast users. As a general rule, prime lenses offer wider maximum apertures
than zooms, making them attractive for sport, news and other low light situations. Most prime lenses also
offer higher optical performance than most zoom lenses. See page 9 for guide to listings.
www.eos-magazine.com
Non-zoom (prime) lenses
Image stabilisation non-zoom (prime) lenses
The following lenses are among the best you can buy for your EOS camera. At the very least, you should consider the ‘nifty fifty’ – EF 50mm f1.8 II – one of the least expensive lenses in the system.
Built-in gyros control an image stabiliser group of elements. These shift in response to movement and reduce the effects of camera shake. “Stops’ (first column in table) indicates the approximate
advantage given by the lens; for example, 3 stops means that – with IS on – you can shoot with a shutter speed three stops slower than with IS off and obtain similar results in terms of image sharpness.

EF Extenders
Extender is Canon’s name for a teleconverter. These high performance Extenders multiply the effective
focal length of the lens to which they are attached by x2 or x1.4. However, they have the disadvantage of
reducing the effective aperture of the lens by 2 stops or 1 stop respectively. Extenders are only suitable
for certain lenses (see right). They will not fit other EF lenses (the front elements of the Extenders get in
the way of the rear elements of the lenses. The Mk III versions complement the latest range of L-series
lenses, matching their appearance and offering a visible differentiation from previous models. A carefully
positioned lens release mechanism also makes it easy to mount the extenders quickly, reducing the time
that the camera and lens are exposed to the environment. The Extenders are highly resistant to both dust
and water, allowing photographers to use them in extreme shooting conditions.
Throughout this supplement the names of current products are printed in BLACK and those of discontinued products in VIOLET.
Items in RED are new since the 2011 edition of Everything EOS.

Speedlites
Complete system for travelling light
Speedlite specifications
While a built-in flash unit is useful, it is limited in range and scope. All EOS cameras accept Speedlites – the
Canon name for an attachable electronic flashgun. Although the current range of Speedlites is relatively
small, several of the discontinued models are quite common on the second-hand market.
This chart gives the basic specification of all the different Speedlite models. The guide number indicates the
power of the unit. Choose one with a tilt and/or swivel head if you want to try bounce flash photography. An
EX-series unit is recommended for Type A cameras (see next page) and is essential for EOS digital cameras.
Autoflash exposure
All Canon Speedlites provide autoflash
exposure. The exposure is determined
by measuring the brightness of the flash
illumination reflected from the subject.
However, the sensors which measure
this reflected light are actually found
inside the camera, rather than in the
Speedlite (the Speedlites 200M and
480EG are exceptions). The way in which
autoflash metering operates has evolved
over the years.
TTL autoflash
When the shutter button is pressed, the camera
sets the shutter speed and aperture to suit the
ambient light. Then the flash starts to fire. The
light reflected back to the camera from the subject
is reflected from the film during the exposure
and measured by flash sensors inside the camera
body. When the camera determines that sufficient
light has been received for correct exposure,
it terminates the flash output. TTL is short for
‘through-the-lens’ – meaning that the light is
measured only after it has passed through the
camera lens.
A-TTL autoflash
The ‘A’ stands for ‘advanced’. Here, a short, lowpower flash is emitted from the Speedlite as the
shutter button is pressed. This allows the camera
to determine the aperture needed for correct flash
exposure. At the same time, the camera takes a
normal light reading to determine the aperture
needed for the ambient light exposure. The smaller
of these two apertures is then set and the main
flash fires. The actual flash output is still controlled
during the exposure by a sensor measuring the light
reflected from the film. The advantage of A-TTL over
TTL autoflash is that correct exposure is given up to
the maximum range of the Speedlite regardless of
the lighting conditions.
E-TTL autoflash
‘E’ is for ‘evaluative’. The flash system shares the
light sensors in the camera viewfinder which are
also used for evaluative metering of the ambient
light. As the shutter button is pressed, an ambient
light reading is taken. Then a low power pre-flash
is emitted by the Speedlite. The sensors measure
the pre-flash illumination reflected by the subject,
but can’t help seeing the ambient light at the same
time. So the camera deducts the first ambient light
reading from this second reading to get a flash-only
reading. This flash reading allows the camera to
determine the intensity of the main flash needed
for correct exposure. Finally, the shutter opens and
the main flash fires at this pre-determined intensity.
Unlike TTL and A-TTL autoflash metering, the E-TTL
system does not monitor the flash output during the
actual exposure.
E-TTL II autoflash
E-TTL autoflash works on the assumption that
the subject will be covered by an autofocus (AF)
point. However, an AF point does not always
cover the area of the subject where you want the
flash exposure to be correct. The E-TTL II autoflash
system overcomes this problem. When you press
the shutter button, the ambient light is metered
by each sensor. Then a pre-flash fires and this is
also metered by all the sensors. The ambient and
flash readings for each sensor are then compared.
The area of the scene which shows a significant
difference between the readings is the area where
the subject is most likely to be. This is because the
main subject is likely to be closer to the camera
than the rest of the scene and will reflect more of
the flash. However, if the difference between the
two readings is significantly high, the camera will
14
EVERYTHING EOS 2011
ignore this area on the basis that the flash is being
reflected back to the camera by a very shiny surface,
such as a mirror. The pre-flash meter readings from
accepted areas are weighted and averaged. They
are then compared with the ambient light reading
before the main flash output is calculated and
stored in memory for the exposure. If the lens is
able to provide distance information, this is used
to determine the closeness of the subject and any
highly reflective areas relative to the background.
This information is used to refine the flash exposure.
The result is better flash exposure for difficult
subjects, such as white wedding dresses.
Compatibility
For Speedlite photography, EOS cameras can
be divided into three groups:
Type A-II cameras allow E-TTL II flash metering
with EX-series Speedlites. They use A-TTL flash
metering with EZ-series Speedlites. Type A-II
cameras are:
EOS 1D Mark II, 1D Mark II N, 1D Mark III, 1D Mark
IV, EOS 1D X, 1Ds Mark II, 1Ds Mark III, 7D, 5D, 5D
Mark II, 5D Mark III, 20D, 20Da, 30D, 40D, 50D,
60D, 60Da, 350D, 400D, 450D, 500D, 550D, 600D,
1000D, 1100D,
EOS 30V Date, 33V, 300X.
Type A cameras allow E-TTL flash metering with
EX-series Speedlites. They use A-TTL flash metering
with EZ-series Speedlites. Type A cameras are:
EOS 1D, 1Ds, 10D, 300D, D30, D60.
EOS 1V, 3, 30, 33, 300, 300V, 3000V, 50, 50E,
500N, EOS IX, IX7.
Type B cameras are all EOS models not listed
above. Type B cameras provide TTL metering with
EX-series Speedlites. They use A-TTL flash metering
with EZ-series Speedlites.
Off-camera flash
The only real advantage of attaching
a Speedlite to the camera hot-shoe is
convenience. For most subjects, having
the Speedlite positioned close to the
lens does not give the best results. There
are two ways to move a Speedlite away
from the camera – cables or wireless.
However, not all Speedlites offer the
wireless function (see below), so a cable
is the only option for some.
system you lose some features:
• A-TTL flash switches to TTL
• there is no preflash, autozoom or auxiliary light
• there is no distance readout or second curtain synchronization
• you can’t use Depth mode.
Optical wireless flash
An alternative to the cables is the optical wireless
flash system introduced by Canon with the
Speedlite 550EX.
You need a minimum of two units as one
needs to be connected to the camera hot-shoe.
This is called the master unit. It can be one of the
compatible Speedlites or the Speedlite Transmitter
(this does not provide flash illumination – it simply
controls one or more off-camera Speedlites). If you
use a Speedlite 600EX-RT, 600EX, 580EX or 550EX
on the camera you can reduce the power of the
flash so that it controls off-camera units without
adding to the illumination. The units controlled by
the master are called slaves.
Master units are the Speedlite 600EX-RT,
600EX, 580EX, 580EX II, 550EX, Macro Ring Flash
MR-14EX and Macro Twin Flash MT-24EX, plus the
Speedlite Transmitter ST-E2. The built-in flash of
the EOS 7D, 60D and 600D can also be used as a
master unit.
Slave units can be the Speedlite 600EX-Rt,
600EX, 580EX II, 580EX, 550EX, 420EX, 430EX,
430EX II, 320EX and 270EX II.
Wireless flash is only fully compatible with
Type A-II and A cameras (see following spread).
Speedlite 600EX-RT must be set to wireless optical
flash to work with other optical wireless units.
Radio wireless flash
The Speedlite 600EX-RT introduces radio wireless
flash to the EOS system. This provides greater
range than the optical wireless system, and does
not require the master and slave units to have
line-of-sight with each other. Many of the features
of the two systems are similar, but they are not
compatible. Currently, the only units with radio
wireless flash are the Speedlite 600EX-RT and the
Speedlite transmitter ST-E3-RT.
EX-series
These are the most advanced Speedlites.
Most give E-TTL II autoflash metering
with Type A-II cameras, E-TTL autoflash
metering with Type A models and TTL
autoflash metering with Type B models
(see next spread for listing of models).
Speedlite 220EX
Twice the power of a built-in flash, but only half
that of the 420EX. Useful for fill-in flash outdoors
or subjects within 3 or 4 metres indoors. The fixed
head means you need an Off Camera Shoe Cord
for bounce flash photography. High speed (FP)
synchronisation. Flash exposure compensation.
Speedlite 270EX
The compact Speedlite 270EX builds on the success
of the 220EX, with more power than usual for its
class and size. It includes a host of new features
not available with a built-in flash. These include
the addition of a zoom head for efficient light
distribution and a bounce flash head.
EOS magazine, Apr-Jun 2009, page 19
EOS magazine, Oct-Dec 2009, page 54
Speedlite 270EX II £195.00
The Speedlite 270EX II (above) replaces the Speedlite 270EX at the entry level of Canon’s Speedlite
range. It is compatible with Canon’s distance-linked
E-TTL II system, and can be used on-camera or as a
slave unit controlled by a separate master unit or the
Integrated Speedlite Transmitter of cameras such as
the EOS 600D, 60D and 7D.
EOS magazine, Apr-Jun 2011, page 27
Off Camera Shoe Cord
The Off Camera Shoe Cord only gives an extension
of about 60cm, but this is more than adequate
to improve the lighting for most subjects. Try
holding the Speedlite above and to the left of the
camera for better portraits. Canon says the cord is
incompatible with the EOS 600 and RT cameras.
However, it is only the A-TTL and E-TTL modes
which appear to have problems, often setting an
aperture which is too small for correct exposure.
The cord appears to work normally if you can switch
the Speedlite to TTL mode, or use the camera in
manual (M) mode. With digital cameras, the cord
works normally, but the radio interference caused
may exceed the regulatory limits of the US, Canada
and Germany.
Multiple flash accessories
If you want to move the Speedlite further from the
camera, the multiple flash accessories are worth
considering. You need an adapter for both the
Speedlite and the camera, plus a connecting cable.
The system was designed to provide TTL metering
with two to four Speedlites, but it can be used with
a single Speedlite. However, with this modular
from left to right:
Speedlite 600EX-RT
Speedlite 430EX II
Speedlite 320EX
Speedlite 270EX II
Speedlite 320EX £269.99
The Speedlite 320EX is a compact, versatile flash
compatible with Canon’s distance-linked E-TTL II
system. It can be used on-camera or as a slave unit
controlled by a separate master unit or the Integrated Speedlite Transmitter of cameras such as the
EOS 600D, 60D and 7D. In a first for Canon Speedlite, the Speedlite 320EX features a Video Light
function, complementing bodies with EOS Movie
by enabling users to illuminate low light scenes
continuously when capturing HD video. When using
the Speedlite 320EX in combination with compatible
cameras such as the EOS 1100D or 600D, Auto Light
mode ensures that the LED light automatically turns
on or off according to the ambient light of the scene
when in Movie mode.
EOS magazine, Apr-Jun 2011, page 27
Speedlite 380EX
Display panel of the EOS 600EX-RT
The 380EX offers E-TTL and TTL modes, but is not
part of the wireless flash system. The head only tilts
(no swivel). However, it does offer high speed (FP)
synchronisation and flash exposure compensation.
Speedlite 420EX
A successor to the Speedlite 380EX adding swivel
to the tilt head. AF-assist is linked to the seven
focusing points. It emits a cross-type pattern
with vertical and horizontal stripes. The effective
AF-assist range is up to a maximum of about 7
metres.
EOS magazine, September 2000, page 13
Speedlite 430EX
Replaces the Speedlite 420EX, bringing slightly more
power. Improves on many of the specifications of
the 420EX. New features include automatic white
balance setting to match the flash output, and auto
adjustment of the zoom flash position to match the
sensor size of the camera. Can be used as a wireless
slave unit.
EOS magazine, September 2005, page 64
Speedlite 430EX II £310.00
Replaces the Speedlite 430EX. Recycle times have
been reduced by about 20% and recycling is silent.
A new metal mounting foot provides ultra-stable
communication between camera and Speedlite.
Features for digital cameras include colour
temperature control (flash colour temperature
is transmitted to the camera for optimal white
balance) and picture size zoom control (flash head
zooms to a position to suit the camera’s frame size).
EOS magazine, Jul-Sep 2008, page 16
Speedlite 550EX
The 550EX is the first Speedlite with wireless
control. This allows one gun to be designated as the
master unit and up to three groups of guns (called
‘slaves’) to be remotely controlled from this master
unit. Studio-type lighting can be created while
retaining the advantage of a fully dedicated flash
system. There is no limit to the number of flashguns
that can be used in the flash groups. Ratio control
can be applied to groups A and B. Group C,
intended for ‘accent’ lighting, does not have ratio
control. However, flash compensation can be used
to control the brightness of the illumination from
Group C, effectively giving total control of the
lighting from all three groups. The 550EX can be
used as a master or a slave unit.
EOS magazine, September 1998, page 18
Speedlite 580EX
Although suitable for all EOS cameras, the 580EX
has been optimised for use with digital models. It
provides full compatibility with the distance-linked
E-TTL II flash system found on recent EOS cameras,
and automatically adjusts to provide optimum coverage for the sensor size of the latest digital cameras.
The guide number, at a maximum of 58 (ISO 100m),
is the highest of any Canon flashgun. Wireless
transmission is built-in and the unit can be used as
a master or a slave. Accessories include a Compact
Battery Pack CP-E3 and Canon’s first Speedlite
Bracket SB-E1. The Speedlite 580EX is a successor to
the Speedlite 550EX.
EOS magazine, September 2004, page 65
Speedlite 580EX II £559.99
Replacing the 580EX, the Speedlite 580EX II offers a
more durable build quality. When connected to the
EOS-1D Mark III and later pro models, the 580EX II
achieves the same level of dust and moisture resistance as the camera itself. The 580EX II improves
on many of the specifications of the 580EX – the
silent recycling time, for example, is 20% faster. A
redesigned metal flash foot place and connector
pins allow more stable communication between
camera and flash, while a quick release mechanisim

Speedlite 600EX-RT £679.99
The Speedlite 600EX-RT is a high-performance TTL
flash unit. Integrated radio frequency triggering,
in addition to standard optical wireless flash
control, allows complex on-and-off-camera
lighting set-ups. Using one master 600EX-RT or the
new ST-E3-RT radio-frequency wireless Speedlite
Transmitter, up to 15 600EX-RT flash units, set as
slaves and positioned up to 30 metres away, can
be remotely triggered. In addition, EOS cameras
with a connected Speedlite 600EX-RT can be
triggered by a remote Speedlite 600EX-RT. The
Speedlite 600EX-RT communicates white balance
settings to the camera through the hot shoe
connection. However, to further balance flash and
ambient light, a new colour filter adapter and two
supplied colour gels can be fitted to balance the
temperature of the flash and create a more natural
effect when shooting around tungsten or mercury
lighting.
Throughout this

Speedlite 600EX £639.99
As the name suggests, this is the Speedlite 600EXRT without the wireless radio trigger. Otherwise
the specifications are the same. Both Speedlites
can be used with optical wireless transmission in
multiple flash set-ups.

Speedlites
Compatibility and accessories
The chart gives a guide to the type of autoflash metering available when using a Speedlite
with an EOS camera. Most Speedlites can be used with most cameras. The main exceptions
are the recent digital models, which are incompatible with EZ-series Speedlites (except in
manual and stroboscopic modes).

EZ-series
EZ-series Speedlites were introduced at
the time of the first EOS cameras. They
give A-TTL metering with all EOS film
cameras. EZ-series Speedlites are not
compatible with EOS digital cameras.
Speedlite 300EZ
The most basic of the EZ range, with a fixed head
and relatively low power.
Speedlite 420EZ
One of the first EZ-series flashguns. A good range of
features for the time.
Speedlite 430EZ
Replaced the Speedlite 420EZ. Very popular in the
days before E-TTL metering and still a good secondhand choice for Type B cameras.
Speedlite 540EZ
Top of the range in the EZ-series and worth considering if you use a Type B camera.
Other Speedlites
Not compatible with EOS digital cameras
(except Speedlite 480EG – see below)
Speedlite 160E
Low power unit designed for the EOS 850 (which
does not have built-in flash). Usable with other
EOS film models, but the Speedlite 200E is a better
choice. TTL flash metering. Guide number 16 (ISO
100, metres). Coverage down to 35mm.
Speedlite 200E
Designed as a low power unit for cameras without
built-in flash. Do not confuse with the similar-looking 200M. TTL flash metering. Guide number 20
(ISO 100, metres). Coverage down to 35mm lenses.
Wide adaptor for Speedlite 200E
Increases coverage of Speedlite 200E to 28mm
lenses.
Speedlite 200M
Low power unit designed for use with EF-M camera.
This discontinued entry-level camera does not
support TTL flash metering so the Speedlite 200M
has its own built-in sensor. Can be used with other
EOS cameras, but shutter speed and aperture must
be set manually. Automatic non-TTL flash exposure.
Guide number 20 (ISO 100, metres). Coverage to
35mm (28mm with wide-angle adaptor).
Speedlite 480EG kit
Hammerhead style unit usable with all EOS models.
Choice of TTL flash metering or external sensor
– can be used with EOS digital cameras using
external sensor. Maximum guide number of 48 (ISO
100, metres); 68 (ISO 100, metres) with Tele Panel
480. Coverage to 35mm (to 20mm with Wide Panel
480; Tele Panel 480 gives coverage for 135mm and
longer focal lengths). Supplied with TTL Shoe Cord
E, Panel Adapter 480, Wide Panel 480, Tele Panel
480, Clamp EG, Bracket EG, Synchro Cord 480.
Slave Unit E for Speedlite 480EG
Plugs into the Speedlite 480EG to make it fire
remotely in response to the light from another flash
gun.

Speedlite Transmitter ST-E2
£239.99
On-camera wireless transmitter (below) for
Speedlites 580EX II, 580EX, 550EX, 420EX, Macro
Ring Lite MR-14EX and Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX.
Can control up to two slave groups with variable
flash ratio control between groups. The ST-E2 does
not provide any flash illumination. Speedlites 580EX
II, 580EX and and 550EX can also be used on the
camera as wireless transmittters (master units),
with or without the flash firing. Macro Ring Flash
MR-14EX and Macro Twin Flash MT-24EX also act
as Master units.
EOS magazine, September 1998, page 18
Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3
£309.99
The Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT is normally
used in the hot-shoe of the camera. As a master
unit it can control up to 15 Speedlites with
wireless radio transmission (currently only the
Speedlite 600EX-RT). It is compatible with EOS
digital cameras and film cameras using E-TTL and
E-TTL II autoflash systems. The ST-E3-RT does
not offer wireless optical transmission and so is
not compatible with EX Speedlite earlier than the
600EX-RT.
EOS magazine, Apr-Jun 2012, page 29
Off camera cord
Other accessories
Off Camera Shoe Cord 2
Allows you to use a Speedlite up to 0.6m from
the camera while retaining full flash dedication.
Not recommended for EOS 600 or RT as data
transmission errors may lead to incorrect exposures;
however, it can be used if manual mode is set
on camera with aperture and shutter speed set
manually – automatic TTL-flash metering still
operates, controlling the duration of the flash to
suit the chosen aperture. Radio interference may
exceed regulatory limits when used with EOS
digital models in US, Canada and Germany. The
original Off Camera Shoe Cord was designed for the
Canon T90 camera and Speedlite 300TL and is not
compatible with EOS cameras.
Speedlite Bracket SB-E1
Allows the Speedlite to be positioned to the side of
the camera, instead of on the hot-shoe. Requires Off
Camera Shoe Cord 2 or 3.
Off Camera Shoe Cord OC-E3
£59.99
Similar to Off Camera Shoe Cord 2, but maintains
moisture and dust resistance with weather-proofed
cameras for off-camera shooting. Suitable for all
EOS models (except EOS 600 and RT).
Multiple flash
The following accessories allow up
to four Speedlites or Macrolites to be
linked together for automatic TTL-flash
control. Not suitable for EOS digital
cameras.
TTL Hot-shoe Adaptor 3 £79.99
Mounts on the camera accessory shoe to provide
a socket for the Connecting Cords. A Speedlite can
be mounted on top of the adaptor. The adaptor
includes a locking pin/socket to secure it to both the
camera and the Speedlite.
TTL Hot-shoe Adaptor 2
As Adaptor 3 (above), but without the locking pin
system.
TTL Hot-shoe Adaptor
The original Adaptor was designed for the Canon
T90 camera and is not recommended for use with
the EOS system. However, some users say that it
works well with EOS cameras.
Off Camera Shoe Adaptor
Slips onto the base of the Speedlite to provide a
socket for the Connecting Cords. Can be fixed to
a tripod.

Accessories
Enhance your camera outfit
Lenses and Speedlites are just part of the vast system of accessories available for your EOS camera.
Whatever your area of interest, there is almost certain to be something designed to improve your
photography – or at least make it a little easier. The next five pages cover the complete range, including
discontinued items you might come across on second-hand shelves.
AC adapter kits
AC adapter kits allow you to power your
EOS digital camera direct from a mains
power supply. This is useful if you are
shooting for a long period – in a studio
set-up, for example, or with a tethered
computer. It is also recommended when
you are cleaning the digital sensor, to
avoid battery failure closing the shutter
unexpectedly.

Designed for use with large telephoto lenses on
the EOS 1N and 1V, but very flexible and can be
used with most lenses and cameras. However,
the hoods have a fitting which slips over the
viewfinder eyepiece and this is not suitable for the
EOS 3/30/33/5/50E. See EOS magazine, June 2000,
page 52 for review and alternative rain protection.

Small essentials for better pictures
Lens flare spoils many pictures. Even when it does not show as a streak across the image, it can cause overall loss of
contrast. Flare is caused by light from bright sources, such as the sun, or spotlights, hitting the front element of the lens
at an angle. This sets off a series of unwanted internal reflections and refractions. A good lens hood protects the front of
the lens from this side lighting.
Remote Switch Adaptor T3
Allows Wireless Controller LC-1 and Remote
Switches 3 and 60 (from Canon FD system) to be
used on EOS 1, 1N, 5, 600, 620, 650, RT, DCS 1,

Among the improvements offered by the LC-5
that were not available on earlier models is the
enhanced one-shot release mode (1SR). This allows
you to pre-focus the camera and then lie in wait
− virtually indefinitely − for the subject to come
into range. By pressing the LC-5 transmitter trigger
fully, the LC-5 remote receiver can wake the camera
from its energy-saving sleep mode and capture the
image that you have been waiting for. When not
in 1SR mode, you need only depress the remote
transmitter’s trigger button halfway to engage the
camera’s autofocus before shooting.

Your camera’s sensor
Sensor size
The EOS range of cameras
Crop factor
APS-C
There is a lot of confusion about megapixels and sensor size, and
the impact each has on image quality. Andrew Gibson clarifies the
advantages of full-frame and cropped sensors.
ANDREW GIBSON
Measuring
approximately
22x15mm, the
APS-C sensor is the
smallest in the EOS
range. The smaller
the sensor, the less expensive it is to produce,
which is why APS-C size sensors are used in
Canon’s entry level and mid-range models.
APS-H
The APS-H sensor
is used in the
professional EOS
1D series cameras
and sits between
the other two sizes
at approximately 29x19mm. The information
from these sensors can be handled more
quickly by the camera’s processors than the
information from full-frame sensors – hence
the cameras are more responsive and have
the rapid frame rates required by sports, news
and nature photographers.
Full-frame
At approximately
36x24mm a fullframe sensor is more
or less the same size
as the frame on a
35mm film camera.
If all other factors are equal, larger sensors
produce better quality images, which is why
these sensors are used in the professional
EOS 1Ds series and high-end consumer
models like the EOS 5D and 5D Mark II. They
are also much more expensive to produce,
which is one of the reasons why these
cameras cost more.
The release of the EOS 7D has sparked a
debate about the merits of megapixels. How
many megapixels are enough? How many are
too much? Should I buy a full-frame camera?
To discuss the implications of these
questions we need to look at the advantages
and disadvantages of full-frame and cropped
sensors. Cameras with APS-C size sensors
perform differently from cameras with fullframe sensors. Whether these differences
are advantageous or not depends on your
viewpoint, the type of images you shoot and
the demands you put on your equipment.
Every time Canon introduces a new
camera, it designs a sensor to meet the needs
of the body. The sensor is one of the most
important components in the camera. It’s
effectively the camera’s eye – the quality
Above This portrait
was shot on an EOS 5D
Mk II camera, which has
a full-frame sensor (red
framing). The green and
yellow framing shows
how it would look if it
were taken from the
same position and with
the same lens on an
APS-H camera (green)
or APS-C camera
(yellow). The depth-offield stays the same;
the effect of using
smaller sensors simply
crops the image.
of the images the camera is capable of
producing depends on the sensor and the
circuitry that processes the data read from it.
It’s important not to be too worried
about whether your particular EOS model is
advanced enough to produce good images.
Digital cameras are still a rapidly evolving
technology, and while it’s easy to feel left
out as cameras evolve the upside is that we
can look forward to more advances in sensor
technology in years to come.
If you’re a professional or semi-pro
photographer your livelihood is dependent on
you producing images of the highest quality,
and so keeping up with the latest technology
is paramount. But for most of us, our skills
and artistic vision are just as important as the
electronics inside our cameras.

three sensors that can be found in EOS cameras.
The APS-C sensor is shown in yellow, the APS-H
sensor in green and the full-frame sensor in red.
Medium and large
format cameras
Photographers who
use medium and large
format cameras will
be familiar with this
difference in the focal
length of the standard
lens. A standard lens
on a 6 x 6cm medium
format has a focal
length of 80mm, and
200mm on a 5 x 7 inch
view camera.

Effective
megapixels
Above The field-ofview of a 50mm lens
varies depending on the
camera. On a full-frame
camera it has a fieldof-view of 39° (red), 32°
on an APS-H camera
(green) and 25° on an
APS-C camera (yellow).

On EOS film cameras, compatible lenses
behave the same, no matter which body they
are used with. This is because the film frame
size is always 36 x 24mm (known as fullframe). It is different with EOS digital cameras,
because there are three different sensor sizes.
Take a 50mm lens, for example (or a zoom
lens set to 50mm). On a full frame camera
(film or digital) this is called a ‘standard’ focal
length, based on its horizontal field-of-view
of about 40° (supposedly similar to that of the
human eye).
With the smaller sensor of an APS-C
camera, however, the horizontal field-of-view
of a 50mm lens is only about 25°, taking it into
telephoto lens territory.
The lens which gives a horizontal field-ofview of around 40mm with an APS-C camera
is one with a focal length of 28mm. So with an
APS-C camera, the standard lens is 28mm.
You will often see a ‘crop factor’ of 1.6x
mentioned in connection with APS-C format
cameras. This tells you that if you multiply
the focal length of a lens used on an APS-C
camera by 1.6, you will find the equivalent
focal length of lens on a full-frame camera
which gives a similar horizontal field-of-view.
Or you can simply remember that, on an
APS-C format camera, any lens below 28mm
is wide-angle, any lens above is telephoto.
