EOS 3000 specification

Type: 35mm autofocus, autoexposure single-lens reflex with focalplane shutter, built-in flash and built-in motor drive Picture size: 24 x 36 mm Lens mount: Canon EF mount Viewfinder: Eye-level pentaprism (non-interchangeable) Picture coverage: 90 percent vertically and horizontally Magnification: 0.70x (with 50mm lens at infinity) Standard dioptre: -1 dioptre (18.5mm eye relief) Fixed focusing screen (New Laser-matte marked with focus points and partial metering circle) Viewfinder information includes shutter speed, aperture, AE Lock, Red-eye reduction indicator, flash ready signal, exposure compensation scale, in-focus indicator (viewfinder display cannot be switched off) Mirror: Quick-return half mirror (transmission: reflection ratio of 40:60); viewfinder blackout time of 360ms or shorter at 1/60 second and faster speeds. Mirror vignetting: no vignetting up to EF 200mm f5.6 (or EF 80200mm f4.5-5.6 at 200mm), except for the EF 50mm f1.0L lens. Depth-of-field preview: not provided Eyepiece shutter: not built-in (accessory eyepiece cover is attached to camera strap) Exposure metering: TTL maximum aperture metering with a 6-zone silicon photocell. There are two metering modes: Evaluative metering Partial metering (approx. 9.5% of viewfinder at centre) Partial metering is set in the Program Image Control (PIC) modes (except ADEP) and during AE Lock. Metering is activated when the shutter button is partially depressed, and continues for 6 seconds after the shutter button is released. Incorrect exposure is indicated by a 'blinking' display on the external LCD and in the viewfinder. Shooting modes: Intelligent Program AE (shiftable) Shutter speed-priority AE Aperture-priority AE Full Auto Program Image Control (Portrait, Landscape, Close-up. Sports) Auto DEP TTL program flash AE A-TTL program flash AE Metered Manual E-TTL autoflash is not available

Metering Range: EV 2-20 (at 20C/68F with 50mm f1.4 lens, ISO 100) ISO film speed range: ISO 25 to5000 (set automatically with DX-coded film at ISO 25-5000) ISO 6 to 6400 (set manually in 1/3 stop increments) Exposure compensation: set manually up to +/- 2 stops in 0.5 stop increments (only available in Creative Zone modes. AEB is not provided. AE Lock: enabled with the AE Lock button (camera automatically switches to partial metering mode). Settable only in Creative Zone modes. AF Lock sets AE Lock automatically. Multiple exposures: Maximum 9 multiple exposures. Cancels automatically after all multiple exposures are taken. (Cancellable and resettable at any time.) Settable only in Creative Zone modes. Autofocus: TTL-SIR (through-the-lens secondary image registration). Three focus points. AF working range: EV 1.5-18 (at ISO 100) Focusing modes: one of the following two modes is set automatically (not user-selectable) to suit the picture-taking mode. One-Shot AF: autofocus stops when focus is achieved; AF lock enabled; shutter releases only when focus is achieved AI Servo AF (switches automatically between One-shot AF and Predictive AF). For still subjects: when focus is achieved, AF operation stops and focus is locked. For moving subjects: AF continuously tracks subject movement. Manual focusing: enabled with the focusing ring when the lens focus mode switch is set to MF (or M). The three focus points serve as a focusing aid. In-focus indicator: lights in viewfinder and beeps (beeper can be disabled in Creative Zone modes). Focusing point selection: automatic by camera (not user selectable, except that use of partial metering selects centre focus point). AF-assist beam: built-in tungsten lamp; lights automatically when required (EV 3 to 5 at ISO 100 or slower). Range: 4 metres at centre and 2.5 metres at sides. Shutter: Vertical-travel, focal-plane shutter with all speeds electronically-controlled Shutter speeds: 30 seconds to 1/2000 second in 1/2-stops; X-sync at 1/90 second; bulb Shutter release: soft-touch electromagnetic release. 2.5mm minijack terminal provided for Remote Switch RS-60E3 Self-timer: electronically-controlled with 10 second or 2 second delay; operation indicated by electronic beeper (at 2Hz, then at 8Hz for the final two seconds); self-timer countdown on LCD panel; useable in all shooting modes; self-timer cancellable by turning Command Dial to L Camera shake warning: provided for Full Auto and Program Image Control modes (if the shutter speed is slower than the reciprocal of the lens focal length by 0.5 steps or more, the shutter speed display blinks)

Film loading: prewind system; automatic take-up with sprocketed spool. Prewind time: 9 seconds for 24-exposures. Film advance system: automatic film advance with built-in motor. Film advance at approx. 1fps. Film advance modes: single or continuous film advance set automatically to suit the picture-taking mode Film rewind system: film is rewound into cassette as film advances from frame to frame. Midroll rewind: provided Frame counter: electronic numeric counter on external LCD; counts up during prewinding and counts down during film advance or midroll rewind. Built-in flash: retractable TTL autoflash head in pentaprism. Manual pop-up and retraction (in PIC modes, a flash required warning blinks in viewfinder display) Flash exposure system: TTL off-the-film, 3-zone, autoflash metering linked to focusing points. Flash activation: in Creative Zone modes, flash fires every time when popped up. in Full Auto and PIC modes, flash only fires in low-light and back-lit situations when popped up Guide number: 12 (ISO 100, metres) Effective range: up to 4.2 metres with ISO 100 negative film. Flash output control: automatic flash output reduction for backlighting and fill-in flash. Flash exposure compensation: not provided Correct flash exposure indicator: not provided Flash duration: 1 ms or less Recycling time: approx. 2 seconds Coverage: down to focal lengths of 28mm Synchronisation speed: automatically set to 1/90 second in Program AE mode can be set between 30 seconds and 1/90 second in Tv and Manual modes automatically set between 30 seconds and 1/90 second in Av mode. Red-eye reduction: selectable. Tungsten lamp (also serves as AFassist lamp) lights for approx. 1.25 seconds. Operates in all picturetaking modes. External flash unit compatibility: attaching an external Speedlite via hot-shoe disables the built-in flash, giving priority to the Speedlite. No PC socket. All Speedlites can be used, but E-TTL flash is not available. Custom Functions: none LCD panel: display includes shutter speed, aperture, frame counter, film speed, exposure scale and battery check, together with red-eye reduction lamp, self-timer, film status, beeper and multiple exposure icons
