The Canon EOS 7s is based on the EOS 7 released in October 2000 and offers improved functionality to satisfy a wide range of users, from photo enthusiasts looking for something beyond an entry-level model to high-end amateur photographers.

Featuring a high-speed-processing microcomputer and employing a new AF sequence (equivalent to that of the EOS 10D digital AF SLR camera), the EOS 7s realizes the fastest one-shot AF performance in its class in 2004. The camera also features Canon’s new E-TTL II automatic flash exposure control. Used with Canon’s EX-series Speedlite flashes, ETTL II employs a revised metering algorithm that utilizes distance information received via Canon EF lenses for exposure control with improved precision and stability.

Enhancing operability, the EOS 7s has a backlit operation-display panel, large printed control markings on the body for easy recognition, and intuitive, user-friendly control placement. The model also raises the bar aesthetically, offering a sophisticated-looking body with aluminum front and top covers finished with bonded black alumite and a leather-tone Ultra-Mat Coating. Adding to the camera’s refined appearance is a stylish metal mode dial, embossed with raised electroplating for a three-dimensional effect.

The EOS 7s features the same outstanding eye-controlled 7-point wide area AF system employed in the EOS 7, providing users with greater framing flexibility, regardless of the location of the subject within the viewfinder. The eye-control function realizes a reduction in response time of approximately 15% compared with the high-end EOS-3, distinguishing the model as the fastest eye-controlled camera in the EOS series. Other performance enhancing features include built-in dioptric adjustment and focusing points superimposed in the viewfinder.

In addition to a continuous-shooting speed of 4 fps, the EOS 7s boasts predictive AF performance equivalent to Canon’s flagship 35mm AF SLR-model EOS-1V, enabling the camera to maintain focus on a moving subject by continuously tracking its movement. Moreover, 35-zone evaluative metering, which is linked to each focusing point, analyzes and makes adjustments for lighting conditions around the subject to ensure outstanding exposure performance.

The EOS 7s permits users to shoot and change film even in situations requiring silence, incorporating a transport system that features a state-of-the-art noise-reduction design to ensure exceptionally quiet performance during film advance and film rewind.
