The EOS-3 is the world’s first high-performance AF single-lens reflex
camera with Eye-Control area AF. The camera’s many features can suit
diverse picture-taking requirements from fully automatic operations to
highly specialized applications. It also retains the simple electronic dial
operation found on other top-tier EOS cameras.
Before using the camera, read this Instructions booklet and familiarize
yourself with the camera.
● Precautions
• Before using the camera for important events such as a weddings,
be sure to take test shots to make sure the camera operates
• EOS cameras have a lens mount fitted with electrical contacts for
dedicated operation (autofocusing, exposure control, etc.) with
Canon EF lenses. Using a non-EF lens with an EOS camera may
not result in proper camera or lens operation.
Also, the warranty does not cover any malfunction or damage
occurring with the use of non-Canon lenses.
