Dual Axis Electronic Level Sensor
Developed by Canon and featured 
in select EOS cameras, the 
brilliant Dual Axis Electronic Level 
display aids in achieving perfectly 
oriented shots. Capable of displaying both roll 
and pitch in 1° increments, the Dual Axis 
Electronic Level is visible in the viewfinder and 
on the camera’s LCD monitor, in both Live View 
mode or as a standalone. This feature is 
invaluable for architecture photography,  
macro photography, video, or any situation 
where critical composition is important.
Vari-angle LCD Monitor
Found on select EOS cameras, 
the Vari-angle 3.0-inch 
ClearView LCD monitor and 
Vari-angle Touch Screen 
3.0-inch ClearView LCD monitor II with 180° 
vertical rotation set high  
standards for clarity and 
flexibility. Designed to 
flip out from the back of the camera, the 
Vari-angle monitor’s 180° rotation means it 
can be adjusted for low angle or high angle 
and can even be positioned forward directly at 
the subject (perfect for shooting self-portraits). 
Because the monitor opens out sideways, it 
switches between low and high angle shooting 
without interfering with the use of auxiliary 
camera grips or tripods. As an added plus, 
select EOS cameras’ LCD monitors have touch 
screen capabilities for more intuitive control. 
Live View Function
Live View Function, where the 
photographer can compose and 
shoot directly from the camera’s 
LCD monitor, is an indispensable feature for 
creative photography in any number of situations. 
It enables the photographer to zoom in and 
navigate the composition 5x or 10x its normal 
size (6x or 16x for EOS 5DS and 5DS R), while 
enabling critical focus and allowing more 
attention to detail. Users can even choose a grid 
overlay, perfect for architectural photography. 
In the studio, Live View Function can be used 
remotely through the camera’s USB connection, 
or wirelessly if the optional Wireless File 
Transmitter is used.
Live View Focusing
Canon’s Live View Function includes three 
focusing modes: Quick mode
, Live mode, and 
Face Detection Live mode. In Quick mode, 
One-Shot AF is set automatically and the AF 
point is selectable even while the Live View 
image is displayed. In Live mode, AF can be 
started by pressing the AE button for either  
AF mode. In Face Detection Live mode, the 
largest face near center is detected initially, but 
the multi-controller can be used to select any 
face detected. 
Top LCD Panel and Multi-control Dial
The EOS Rebel T6s camera is the first EOS 
Rebel to feature a top LCD panel and a  
multi-control dial. Mostly found on high-end 
professional EOS cameras, the top LCD panel 
and a multi-control dial provide quick and 
convenient controlling of shooting information 
in different shooting situations. 
Intelligent Viewfinder
An Intelligent Viewfinder uses  
a transparent LCD monitor to 
superimpose a customizable 
combination of focus points, 
gridlines and other shooting information 
within the viewfinder. Whereas the  
representation of AF points and metering 
areas are static with standard viewfinders, 
the Intelligent Viewfinder allows the information 
to be displayed, adjusted, or hidden with 
ease. This means less distraction and more 
clarity to view the image in its entirety. The 
EOS 7D Mark II camera’s Intelligent Viewfinder II 
even allows users to change settings right 
from the viewfinder while shooting. With  
Grid Display and in Spot Metering mode,  
the specific area metered is shown.
A clear, bright viewfinder is the 
photographer’s first tool for great 
images. Canon innovates with  
their viewfinders by offering 
approximately 100% viewfinder coverage in 
select EOS cameras. Several EOS cameras 
also have a larger pentaprism for higher 
viewfinder magnification. All EOS cameras 
offer dioptric correction while numerous EOS 
cameras have a number of different viewfinder 
accessories for almost any application.
Superb Ergonomics
EOS cameras not only produce phenomenal 
images, they are designed to be comfortable to 
use and carry all day long. From bright  
viewfinders, to tactile buttons and knobs, 
Canon is constantly refining ergonomics based 
on the feedback of real users. Canon’s Custom 
functions further enable photographers to tailor 
features and operations to their shooting 
style. The EOS-1D X camera has programmable 
function buttons located on the front of the 
camera that enable fast access to frequently 
used features the photographer specifies.  
Its vertical grip is redesigned 
for comfort and familiarity, and combined with 
a vertical position Multi-controller, provides 
every option and button found in the horizontal 
for uninterrupted, intuitive shooting no matter 
the camera’s orientation. Plus, the EOS-1D X’s 
Multi Electronic Lock allows the Main Dial, 
Quick Control Dial and Multi-controller to be  
all locked, individually or together.
Intelligent Viewfinder – Change your viewfinder display to match your situation. 
(All displays shown are the EOS 7D Mark II's Intelligent Viewfinder II)
Live View Function – With Live View Function, images can be composed and captured from the camera’s LCD monitor, 
including the ability to zoom in up to 10x. (Up to 16x for EOS 5DS and 5DS R)
