The EOS-1 N family consists of the following three models in addition to
the standard model:
• EOS-1 N DP:
This model combines the BP-E1* AA-size battery pack with the
EOS-1 N, allowing the user to switch between the standard
2CR5 lithium battery or AA-size batteries depending on the
shooting situation. (Refer to page 93.)
• EOS-1 N HS:
This model combines the Power Drive Booster E1* with the
EOS-1 N, providing high-speed continuous shooting and
increased shooting capacity. (Refer to page 96.)
• EOS-1 N RS**: This model features a non-moving, hard-coated new pellicle mirror
which provides non-interrupted viewing through the viewfinder and
rapid-fire continuous shooting at 10 frames/sec. Moreover, the
camera’s release time lag (the time between when the shutter button is pressed and when the exposure occurs) is reduced to a
mere 0.006 sec. (Refer to page 100.)
* BP-E1 and Power Drive Booster E1 must be purchased separately in North America.
**The EOS-1 N RS is scheduled for availability in Spring 1995.

Shooting Preparations
and Basic Operation
• New functions appearing on the EOS-1 N for the first time are indicated by an (
). If you
are already familiar with the operation of the EOS-1, you can quickly familiarize yourself with
the EOS-1 N by just reading the text sections indicated by an (
).

Camera Care and Precautions
1. Handling, Cleaning and Storage
• This camera is a high-precision instrument. Be careful not to drop it or subject
it to shock.
• The Canon EOS-1 N has been designed for increased resistance to moisture.
However, this camera is not waterproof and must therefore be handled with
reasonable care. Keep the camera out of salt spray and protect it from excessive moisture. If used at the beach, clean it thoroughly afterward with a dry
cloth. If dropped in water, contact an authorized Canon service facility.
• This camera contains high-precision circuits. Do not attempt to disassemble
the camera yourself. Always take it to an authorized Canon service facility for
repair.
• Do not touch the camera’s electronic contacts with your fingers. Touching the
contacts can cause corrosion and affect proper camera operation.
• After removing a lens from the camera, place it face down on a flat surface to
avoid damaging the electronic contacts on the lens mount.
• Condensation is a problem when bringing cold equipment into a warm place.
If the autofocus optics cloud over, accuracy may be seriously affected. Before
entering a warm place, put equipment in a plastic bag so condensation forms
on the outside of the bag.
• To remove dust from the lens, viewfinder eyepiece, mirror, focusing screen or
film chamber, gently blow the dust away using a commercially-available bulbtype blower. Avoid directly touching any of these surfaces. Do not wipe the
camera body or lens with any type of cleaner containing organic solvents.
When further cleaning is necessary, consult your nearest Canon service center.
• The shutter curtain operates with extremely high precision and can be easily
damaged if touched. When loading or unloading film, be careful not to touch
the shutter curtain accidentally with your finger or the tip of the film. To
remove dust from the shutter curtain or surrounding area, only use a blower
and be careful not to blow air onto the curtain too strongly. Strongly blowing
air onto the curtain may deform or damage it. Aerosol spray dust removers
are not recommended for the shutter curtain.
6
• When storing the camera, wrap it in a clean, soft cloth and place it in a wellventilated, cool, dry, dust-free place. Be sure to keep the camera out of direct
sunlight, and away from “hot spots” such as the trunk or rear window shelf of
a car. Avoid places where moth balls are used, and in extreme humidity, use
a desiccant. To prevent corrosion, avoid storing the camera in a laboratory or
other location where chemicals are used. Also, do not store the camera in a
drawer or other non-ventilated place. Remove the battery if you do not expect
to use the camera for about three weeks or longer. It is also recommended to
take the camera out and release the shutter occasionally to prevent build up
of mold or corrosion.
Camera Care and Precautions
• A minute amount of battery power is used for the display even when the main
switch is set to
. This does not affect the camera’s shooting capacity (number of film rolls possible per battery).
• Carefully check the camera’s operation after lengthy storage. When the camera has not been used for a long time, or before an important trip or shooting
assignment, we recommend having the camera thoroughly tested at a Canon
service center.
2. Liquid Crystal Display Information
The LCD panel uses liquid crystal to indicate camera settings. Due to the characteristics of the liquid crystal, the display may become difficult to read because of its
life span which varies according to the condition of use. If this occurs, have it
replaced at an authorized Canon service facility. Replacement is at the owner’s
expense in case of out of warranty term.
Liquid crystal may also respond relatively slowly in temperatures below 32°F/0°C. It
may also darken in temperatures of around 140°F/60°C. The LCD panel will return
when the temperature returns to normal.
3. Blinking “
” Display
There are two conditions in which the blinking “
” will appear in the LCD panel:
(1) when the battery is nearly exhausted or (2) when the camera’s self-test process
detects an internal malfunction. If the blinking “
” indicator appears, perform the
following operations:
1. Press the battery check button to check the battery level. If the battery level is
low, replace the battery with a new one.
2. If the indicator shows a sufficient battery level, remove the battery, wipe the battery terminals and reload it.
3. Release the shutter once.
If the “
” display stops blinking, the problem is corrected and you can continue using the camera normally. If the blinking does not stop, the camera needs to
be examined by an authorized Canon service facility.
7
Camera Care and Precautions
4. Battery Information
This camera requires battery power for operation. Always check the battery at the
following times:
1. When loading a new battery
2. After lengthy storage
3. If the shutter will not release
4. In cold weather
5. Before an important shooting assignment
• Wipe the battery terminals with a clean, dry cloth to ensure proper contact.
• The battery may explode or cause burns if disassembled, recharged, shorted,
exposed to high temperatures, or disposed of in fire. Be sure to observe all precautions indicated on the battery package. Always keep batteries out of the
reach of children.
• Lithium battery performance deteriorates slightly in temperatures below
0°C/32°F. Keep the camera and especially a spare battery close to your body or
in an inside pocket to keep it warm until use.
5. Camera Operation with a Low Battery
Even if the battery indicator blinks or does not appear in the LCD panel during battery check, exposure will be correct as long as the shutter releases. When the battery power drops below a certain level, film advance and rewinding stop operating
and “
” blinks in the display. Film winding automatically resumes after a new
battery is loaded. To resume rewinding, press the film rewind button (
).

• The focusing point does not light
up in automatic focus point selection mode when the AF mode is
set to AI Servo.
• The in-focus indicator does not
light up in AI Servo AF mode.
2) At the same time, the camera determines the shutter speed and aperture value combination (exposure
value), and the results are displayed
in the LCD panel and viewfinder. If
you remove your finger from the
shutter button, a timer operates to
continuously display the exposure
settings for six seconds.

2. Pressing Completely
This releases the shutter and takes the
picture, then advances the film. The
LCD panel’s frame counter displays
the frame number.
• Viewfinder data is extinguished during
exposure.
•
If the camera moves at the instant the shutter is released, the motion during exposure
may cause an unsharp picture. This occurrence, called “camera shake,” can be prevented by following these guidelines:
(1) Hold the camera with your right hand and the lens with your left hand firmly so that
they do not move when you take the picture.
(2) Gently press the shutter button from the halfway position to the fully-pressed position with the fat part of your index finger. The trick to keeping the camera still when
taking a picture is to press the shutter button by gently squeezing the camera with
your right hand.
•
The shutter button stroke (height) can be changed according to your preference by taking the camera to an authorized Canon service center (modification will be at the owner's expense).

* Predictive focus control
Predictive focus continuously measures the distance and speed of a subject that is moving at a relatively constant velocity, and then predicts the
subject position so that the subject will be sharply focused at the instant of
exposure.
When using a manually selected focusing point, it is used for predictive
focusing and lights red in the viewfinder.
In automatic focusing point selection mode, cover the subject with the
center focusing point for initial focusing. After that, even if the subject
moves to a different focusing point, the camera’s predictive focus function
will continue to track the subject as long as it is covered by one of the
focusing points. The focusing point does not light up.

Selecting the Metering Mode
● Evaluative Metering (
)
Use this mode for general subjects
and backlit scenes. By dividing the
viewfinder into 16 metering zones
linked with the five focusing points, the
camera evaluates factors such as subject size, position (based on the focusing point in use), brightness, background, front lighting and back lighting
to determine the best exposure setting.
In manual focusing mode, evaluative
metering is based on the central focusing point.
• When the subject is lit by strong backlighting or a narrow beam of light such as a
spotlight, we recommend using partial
metering (
) or fine spot metering (
).
Custom Function
(Refer to pages 88–89)
This function lets you select center-weighted
average metering instead of evaluative metering (
).
● Partial Metering (
)
This mode limits the metering area to
the central part of the viewfinder
(approx. 9% of the image area). Select
this mode when the subject is backlit
or positioned near a strong light
source.
38
Selecting the Metering Mode
● Fine Spot Metering (
)
This mode limits the metering area to
the center of the viewfinder as defined
by the fine spot metering mark
(approx. 2.3% of the image area). Use
this mode when you need an accurate
exposure reading of a specific subject
area.
• In continuous shooting mode (
) or
high - speed continuous shooting mode
with the Power Drive Booster E1 (
,
), the exposure value determined for the first frame is also used for
the second and consecutive exposures.
Custom Function
(Refer to pages 90–91)
This function lets you select spot metering linked to the focusing points. Metering
is limited to the area of the manually
selected focusing point (approx. 3.5% of
the viewfinder image area).
In One-shot AF mode, exposure setting is locked during continuous shooting, but the AE
lock indicator “
” does not light in the viewfinder.
39
6. AE Lock
The EOS-1 N's evaluative metering system is coupled to the five focusing
points. It controls the exposure according to the subject's position, based
on the focusing point in use.
If you want to determine the exposure independently from the focusing
operation, use AE lock. Use it when you also want to change the composition of the picture after determining the exposure. AE lock is effective for
backlit subjects and other situations where there is extremely strong contrast between the subject and background.

If you use AE lock to register a shadow reading of your subject and then change the
scene composition to read a highlight area (or
vice versa), you can then use exposure compensation (refer to page 42) to adjust the
exposure level based on the brightness range
of the scene.

AE lock button activates autofocusing.
•
When using One-shot AF together with Evaluative metering, the exposure reading is
automatically locked when autofocusing is completed after pressing the shutter button
halfway.
•
When using One-shot AF together with Fine Spot or Partial metering, exposure setting
is locked only during continuous shooting.

7. Exposure Compensation
When taking pictures in an AE shooting mode, you can compensate the
exposure according to the subject conditions either by using the quick
control dial while looking through the viewfinder or by using the exposure
compensation button and the main dial. Exposure can be compensated
up to ±3 stops in 1/3-stop increments.

8. Auto Exposure Bracketing [AEB]
Use auto exposure bracketing to take a sequence of pictures at different
exposures. When this function is set, the camera automatically takes
three exposures in sequence while shifting the exposure for each picture.
The bracketing amount can be set in 1/3-stop increments up to ±3 stops
from the metered exposure value. When the shutter button is pressed,
three frames are exposed according to the current film winding mode
(refer to “2. Changing the Film Winding Mode” on page 67), in the
sequence: underexposure → correct (metered) exposure → overexposure.
Auto exposure bracketing is particularly effective when using slide film,
which produces noticeably different results with even small exposure variations.

Shutter Speed Display
Shutter speeds are set in 1/3-stop increments. From 8000 to 4, the shutter speeds are displayed as the reciprocal of the actual time values. For example, 125 on the display indicates a shutter speed of 1/125 sec. For shutter speeds slower than 4, actual times are displayed. For example, 0”3 on the display indicates a shutter speed of 0.3 sec, and 15” indicates a speed of 15 sec. The following shutter speeds are available:
8000 6400 5000 4000 3200 2500 2000 1600 1250 1000 800 640 500 400

3. Depth-of-Field AE [DEP]
This mode places everything between two freely set points in the foreground and background within the zone of focus, effective for making sure
everyone in a large group picture or everything in a landscape photo is
rendered sharp. After you designate the near and far points in the scene,
the camera automatically sets the optimum focus position and the aperture necessary to achieve the required depth of field, then sets the shutter
speed to achieve the correct exposure. The near and far points can be
designated using the selected focusing point in manual focusing point
selection mode, or using the center point in automatic focusing point
selection mode.
• Depth-of-field AE is not possible when the lens’ focus mode switch is set to “M”.

Depth-of-Field AE [DEP]
[Warning Indications]
•
If the aperture value blinks, the desired depth of field cannot be obtained. Use a wideangle lens or move farther from the subject and repeat steps 4 through 6.
•
If the shutter speed of 30” and the maximum aperture of the lens blink, the scene will
be underexposed and Depth-of-Field AE cannot be carried out.
•
If the shutter speed of 8000 and the minimum aperture of the lens blink, the scene will
be overexposed. Use a neutral density (ND) filter to reduce the amount of light entering
the lens.
•
When using a zoom lens, do not zoom the lens until you finish taking the picture.
•
Changing the focusing point during Depth-of-Field AE operation cancels any previously
set data.
•
Flash cannot be used effectively in depth-of-field AE mode. Use of flash will provide the
same result as using flash in Program AE mode.
•
When using a lens equipped with a focus range selector (such as the EF300mm f/2.8L
USM), be sure to set it to the maximum range.
•
If the camera sets a slow shutter speed, use a tripod to prevent camera shake.
•
To cancel Depth-of-Field AE in mid-operation, press the focusing point selector, the
shooting mode selector, the AF mode selector or the metering mode selector.
•
For greater depth of field, we recommend using a wide-angle lens.
•
For shallow depth of field, place both points 1 and 2 on the same point. This method is
effective for blurring the foreground and background when shooting portraits. Use a
telephoto lens for best effect.

This custom function can be used to prevent the camera from automatically setting the film speed according to the film’s
DX code. When this function is set, the
camera does not change the manually set
film speed when changing film, handy
when using many rolls of the same type
of film in succession.
2. Changing the Film Winding Mode
Two film winding modes are available: single exposure mode and continuous exposure mode.
● Single Exposure (
)
The film advances one frame after each picture is taken. After taking a picture,
return the shutter button to the half-pressed position to prepare for the next exposure while keeping the exposure value locked (possible only when camera is set to
One-shot AF and evaluative metering mode).
● Continuous Exposure (
)
Pictures are taken continuously at a rate of approx. 3 frames per second as long as
the shutter button is held pressed.
♦ Attaching the optional Power Drive Booster E1 provides the following two continuous exposure modes:
● Continuous Exposure (
)
Pictures are taken continuously at a rate of approx. 3 frames per second as long as
the shutter button is held pressed.
● High-Speed Continuous Exposure (

battery. When the camera automatically switches to reduced-speed winding, check the
battery level (see page 15) and replace the battery or prepare a new battery as indicated.
•
When film winding or rewinding stops in mid-operation, the “
” indicator blinks in the
LCD panel. When the battery is replaced with a new one, film winding continues automatically. If the camera stopped in the middle of rewinding, press the film rewind button
(
) to continue the rewinding operation.
•
Do not dispose of the battery if its capacity drops due to cold shooting conditions. Its
capacity may return when it returns to normal temperature.

to avoid burning the shutter curtain.
•
Do not point the camera lens at direct sunlight when the mirror is in the up position to
avoid burning the shutter curtain.
•
When the mirror-up function is set, the film is wound one frame at a time, regardless of
the film winding mode (single exposure or continuous exposure).
•
If the self-timer is used in combination with the mirror-up function, the mirror swings up
when the shutter button is first pressed, then the shutter releases automatically after a
delay of 10 seconds (in 10-second self-timer mode) or 2 seconds (in 2-second selftimer mode).
•
The timer function of the optionally available Command Back E1 cannot be used in mirror-up mode.
•
When using the bulb exposure and self-timer modes in combination with the mirror-up
function, a shutter release-type sound is heard when you remove your finger from the
shutter button while the self-timer is operating, but no picture is actually taken.
6. Infrared Photography
Infrared film (film with extended sensitivity to infrared light) can be used to
achieve interesting effects not possible with general-purpose film. When
using black-and-white infrared film, the film’s sensitivity to longer wavelengths requires a slight adjustment in focus using the red infrared index
on the lens. Use a deep red filter to maximize the infrared effect.
• When shooting with infrared film, use a lens equipped with a distance scale window.
• For black-and-white and color infrared photography, read the instructions provided with the film for proper use.

• The lens’ infrared index is set for a
wavelength of 800 nanometers.
However, the wavelength characteristics
of general black-and-white infrared film
varies depending on the type (750~830
nanometers). Therefore, to ensure proper focus when shooting with infrared
film, we recommend to take extra shots
with the lens adjusted slightly to the
front and rear of the infrared index.
• The characteristics of the lenses listed
below are such that they do not require
focus adjustment when using black-andwhite infrared film. These lenses are therefore not equipped with an infrared index.

7. Checking the Depth of Field
Depth of field is the range of focus in
front of and behind the subject in
which objects appear sharp. The depth
of field varies from shallow to deep
depending on the aperture setting, the
angle of view of the lens in use and the
camera to subject distance. To check
the depth of field before taking a picture, press the depth-of-field preview
button. The camera will close down the
lens’ diaphragm to the shooting aperture, allowing you to see the range of
sharpness in the viewfinder.

V Using Flash
Attaching an EOS dedicated speedlite to the
camera’s accessory shoe enables advanced
flash photography with the operational simplicity of normal AE shooting. In addition to
overall exposure compensation, independent
compensation of just the flash exposure is
possible from the camera side.
Operation of the built-in three-zone
(center, right, left) automatic flash
sensor corresponds to the five focusing points, increasing flash exposure
precision by automatically weighting
the exposure to the center when autofocusing at the center point, or to
the left or right when autofocusing at
one of the side points.
76
1. Using EOS Dedicated Speedlites
EOS dedicated Speedlites (540EZ, 430EZ, 420EZ, 300EZ, etc.) make
flash photography as simple as pointing and shooting. Moreover, built-in
advanced functions make it easy to achieve professional fill-in flash
effects in outdoor settings as well as automatic control of flash exposure
when shooting at night or indoors. These units feature a built-in AF auxiliary light function that assists autofocus in dark situations.
By simply attaching an EOS Speedlite to the camera and turning it on, an
appropriate flash synchronization speed (1/250 sec. or slower) is automatically set on the camera. As soon as the flash is charged, the flash
charge completion indicator appears in the viewfinder. For details, refer to
your speedlite’s instruction book.
•
The 540EZ's AF auxiliary light is designed to work with all five of the EOS-1 N’s focus
points. Other EZ Speedlites' AF auxiliary light works with only the center focusing point.
•
The 480EG does not emit an AF auxiliary light.
•
The aperture values displayed on the camera and speedlite LCD panels may sometimes differ. However, the exposure will be correct.
•
When using flash in AI Servo AF mode, the flash unit’s AF auxiliary light will not function. In situations requiring use of the AF auxiliary light, switch to One-shot AF mode.
● Automatic Flash Output Reduction Control
When using a dedicated speedlite to take a photo of a subject lit by skylight-type illumination, the camera automatically reduces the flash unit’s
light output so as not to overexpose the subject.
Custom Function
(Refer to pages 90–91)
You can turn off the automatic flash output reduction control function for stronglybacklit subjects which need extra illumination from the flash.
77
2. Flash Exposure Compensation
This function lets you vary the automatic flash exposure level of EOS dedicated speedlites. The flash exposure can be compensated up to ±3 stops
in 1/3-stop increments.
Custom Function
Flash exposure compensation can also
be set in 1/2-stop increments.
(Refer to pages 86–87)

● Speedlites Capable of Flash Exposure Compensation
This camera can perform flash exposure compensation with all Canon EOS dedicated Speedlites. The 540EZ and 430EZ Speedlites are also equipped with a builtin flash exposure compensation function. When this camera is used with the 540EZ
or 430EZ and flash exposure compensation is set on both the camera and flash
unit, the settings on the flash unit have priority and override the camera setting.
• Flash exposure compensation with EOS dedicated Speedlites is supported with
the Canon Off-camera Shoe Cords and Canon multiple flash accessories connected to the camera by TTL Hot Shoe Adapters 2 and 3.
When using the 300TL Speedlite, set the flash mode button to a position other than MHi or
MLo. TTL automatic flash exposure is possible.
Canon Speedlites other than those mentioned above can be used in manual mode.
79
3. Using Non-dedicated Flash Equipment
This camera’s shutter can synchronize with non-dedicated portable flash
units at up to 1/250 sec. and with studio strobes at up to 1/125 sec.
Before use, test the flash unit at various shutter speeds to make sure it
synchronizes properly with the camera.
● PC Terminal
Flash units equipped with a synchro cord can be used by connecting the
cord to the camera’s PC terminal. The PC terminal is equipped with a lock
screw to prevent accidental disconnection.
The PC terminal provides only an X-sync contact and synchronizes at all
shutter speeds up to 1/250 sec.
• TTL automatic flash control is not possible.
•
Flash units can be connected to both the PC terminal and accessory shoe for multiple
flash setups.
● We recommend using Canon dedicated speedlites with this
camera.
80
•
Use of flash units (having two or more contacts on the hot shoe) or flash accessories
that are designed for dedicated use with other brands of cameras will not work properly
and may result in damage to your EOS camera.
•
Use of flash units of other brands with a trigger circuit voltage in excess of 6 volts DC
may damage your camera. Consult your nearest authorized Canon service facility to
confirm the compatibility.

Additional Information for the EOS-1 N DP Model
A combination of the EOS-1 N with the compact Battery Pack BP-E1 provides a switch that lets you power the camera either from the standard
2CR5 lithium battery stored in the grip or from four AA-size (LR6) alkalinemanganese or Ni-Cd batteries housed in the battery pack. This dual pack
(DP) system lets you use AA-size batteries during normal temperature
shooting and switch to the 2CR5 lithium battery when shooting in cold
conditions. Moreover, the camera will operate even when only one of the
two battery types is installed. Also, the Handstrap E1 (optional) can be
attached to improve holding stability.

Additional Information for the EOS-1 N RS Model
In addition to all the features of the EOS-1 N, the EOS-1 N RS also has a
fixed, hard-coat, new pellicle mirror, a high-speed motor drive, and the
RS mode. The EOS-1 N RS is a single-lens reflex camera having the
fastest AF (autofocus) operation.
Major Features of the EOS-1 N RS
■
In the RS mode, the short shutter release time lag of 0.006 sec. helps
you capture the decisive moment more easily.
■
A high-speed continuous shooting speed of 10 frames per sec. can
be attained.
■
Since the hard-coat, new pellicle mirror is fixed, the image in the
viewfinder is not blocked out during the exposure. This brings the following advantages:
• While looking through the viewfinder, you can see the image at the moment of
exposure.
• While looking through the viewfinder, you can confirm whether the flash is synchronized.
• Even during continuous shooting, the subject’s image in the viewfinder is
steady.
• For flash photography at slow shutter speeds, it is easier to decide the timing of
the flash.
• For multiple flash exposures or multiple exposures on a single frame, it is easier
to set the composition.
• You can notice any camera shake during the moment of exposure.
Note:
• The EOS-1 N RS’s battery magazine cannot be separated from the camera
body. Therefore, the battery magazine cannot be replaced with the GR-E1 normal grip or the BP-E1 size AA battery pack.

8. EOS-1 N RS Operation Notes
104
•
When the shutter button is pressed lightly, there will be a sound as if the shutter was
released. This is only the shutter's rear curtain positioning itself.
•
Use a blower brush to lightly blow off any dust from the pellicle mirror. If the mirror is
really dirty, consult your nearest Canon Service Center.
•
During self-timer operation, etc., when the eyepiece is left uncovered, light entering
through the eyepiece may affect the proper exposure setting. It may even strike the
film. Be sure to cover the eyepiece with the eyepiece shutter.
•
If you include the sun or a bright light source within the viewfinder (especially near the
edge), flare may result.
•
During manual flash photography, use the following formula to compensate for the
reduced amount of light reaching the film due to the pellicle mirror.
Guide No. x 0.8 / Subject distance = Aperture setting
•
When the Canon Speedlite 480EG is used for automatic flash photography, increase
the normal aperture setting by 2/3 stop or decrease the 480EG’s ISO setting by 2/3 EV
(open up) to compensate for the reduced amount of light reaching the film due to the
pellicle mirror.
•
The flash distance range for automatic flash exposures will be 20 percent shorter than
the flash unit's specified distance range. (The 420EZ, 430EZ, and 540EZ flash unit's
will display the flash distance range after the compensation is set.)
•
When using a handheld exposure meter to set the exposure manually, set an exposure compensation of +2/3 EV or set the handheld meter’s ISO setting to 2/3 EV less
than the normal ISO. This is to compensate for the reduced amount of light reaching
the film due to the pellicle mirror.
•
When the EF 50mm f/1.0L USM lens is used, vignetting will occur due to the frame
holding the fixed pellicle mirror in place.
Additional Information for the EOS-1 N RS Model
•
When custom function CF-4 is set to “1” (AF operation with the AE lock button and AE
lock with the shutter button pressed halfway) and the RS mode is used, allow the autofocus operation to be completed before pressing the shutter button halfway.
*
If the shutter button is pressed halfway, the autofocus will not operate even when
the AE lock button is pressed.
*
If the AE lock button is pressed and the shutter button is pressed halfway during
the autofocus operation, the aperture will stop down after focusing is achieved.
•
Do not use Command Back E1 if you want a high continuous shooting speed. Using
Command Back E1 while in the RS mode will give a maximum continuous shooting
speed of only 1 frame/sec. even without any data being imprinted. Also, if data is
imprinted, the maximum continuous shooting speed will vary depending on the film’s
ISO rating. For ISO 64 film, it will be 4 frames/sec.
•
In the RS mode, AEB cannot be used.
