Thank you for purchasing a Canon product.
The EOS ELAN 7NE (DATE) / ELAN 7N / 30V (DATE) / 33V is a highperformance, AF single-lens reflex camera with Eye Control∗ and seven AF points. It is suited for a wide variety of subjects and situations with fully automatic and user-controlled shooting modes. Read this instruction booklet to familiarize yourself with your new camera before taking pictures. Also read “Handling Cautions” on page 6 to prevent camera malfunction and damage. Keep this instruction booklet handy for easy reference.

Before Using Your Camera
• Before an important shoot, be sure to take test shots to make sure the camera operates properly. • EOS cameras have a lens mount for dedicated operation (autofocusing, exposure control, etc.) with Canon EF lenses. Using a non-Canon lens with an EOS camera may not result in proper camera or lens operation. Note that the warranty does not cover any camera malfunction or damage occurring with the use of non-Canon products.

Symbols
The Caution symbol alerts you to avoid shooting problems. The Note symbol gives supplemental information for basic camera operation or picture-taking tips. The Custom Function symbol indicates that there is a relevant Custom Function. For details, see “Custom Function Settings” on page 85.

The correct exposure is adjusted with the camera’s shutter speed and aperture. The ISO film speed is set in accordance with standards set by the International Standardization Organization (ISO). It is an automatic metering and exposure system that sets the optimum exposure (shutter speed and/or aperture value) based on the reading by the built-in exposure meter. 89 . Shutter speed The shutter speed is the length of time the camera’s shutter opens to expose the film to the light coming through the lens. The actual aperture range displayed depends on the lens.) to “K” (30 sec. Exposure Exposure occurs when the film is exposed to light. The higher the film speed. Therefore. ISO film speed The ISO film speed indicates the film’s sensitivity to light. Correct exposure is obtained when the film is exposed to a proper amount of light in accordance with the film’s sensitivity to light. the more sensitive the film is. The camera can display the aperture setting from “X” to “V”. Aperture value The aperture setting (f-number) indicates the size of the aperture opening in the lens.Reference Basic Photography Terms AE Abbreviation for auto exposure. It is used to adjust the amount of light striking the film.

5.Basic Photography Terms Depth of field This is the range where acceptable focus can be achieved in front of and behind the point of focus. A wide-angle lens obtains a deeper depth of field than a telephoto lens. the deeper the depth of field. the shallower the depth of field. (2) A lens with a shorter focal length increases the depth of field. The depth of field is affected as described below: (1) A smaller aperture value (a higher f/number) increases the depth of field. The smaller the aperture value (the higher the f/number). (3) A longer distance between the camera and subject increases the depth of field. And the larger the aperture value (the lower the f/number). Aperture set to f/22. stopping down to f/8 obtains a deeper depth of field than f/4. (4) The depth of field behind the point of optimum focus (2) is longer than the depth of field in front of the point of optimum focus (1). For example. 90 .
