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.

ISO film speed The ISO film speed indicates the film’s sensitivity to light.Reference Basic Photography Terms AE Abbreviation for auto exposure. 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. ISO 400 and higherspeed films are suited for low-light conditions. Aperture value The aperture setting (f-number) indicates the size of the aperture opening in the lens. The actual aperture range displayed depends on the lens. The correct exposure is adjusted with the camera’s shutter speed and aperture. 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. 89 . The ISO film speed is set in accordance with standards set by the International Standardization Organization (ISO). Exposure Exposure occurs when the film is exposed to light.) and “y”.
