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 camera can display the aperture setting from “X” to “V”.Reference Basic Photography Terms AE Abbreviation for auto exposure. Therefore. the more sensitive the film is. The higher the film speed. The ISO film speed is set in accordance with standards set by the International Standardization Organization (ISO). 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 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. The actual aperture range displayed depends on the lens. 89 . ISO film speed The ISO film speed indicates the film’s sensitivity to light.) and “y”. 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. It is used to adjust the amount of light striking the film. Exposure Exposure occurs when the film is exposed to light. ISO 400 and higherspeed films are suited for low-light conditions. The camera displays the shutter speed from “D” (1/4000 sec.

(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.5. For example. stopping down to f/8 obtains a deeper depth of field than f/4. The smaller the aperture value (the higher the f/number). 90 . the deeper the depth of field. And the larger the aperture value (the lower the f/number). (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). A wide-angle lens obtains a deeper depth of field than a telephoto lens.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. the shallower the depth of field. Depth of field Point of optimum focus 1 2 Aperture set to f/2. (3) A longer distance between the camera and subject increases the depth of field. Aperture set to f/22.
