With easy-to-understand key controls and command dial, the Canon EOS Elan IIe offers advanced SLR features. It has automatic exposure control for any light conditions and a built-in flash that lets you shoot indoors or out, day or night. The Canon EOS Elan IIe is fully automatic, but lets you control the essentials manually. It offers nine different programmable exposures and a 10- second-delay self-timer. This unit includes the camera body only; the lens is sold separately.
It is slightly different from the EOS Elan II in that it features eye-controlled focus. This allows the user to control the point of focus by looking at specific parts of the image; an onboard sensor follows eye movement and the lens automatically changes focus as the eye moves to points within the frame.
This model features an LCD screen showing exposure information and LED readouts showing custom functions. The viewfinder provides all the information you need to set up your shots, including depth of field, flash, shutter speed and aperture, and much more. The EOS Elan IIe allows for film speeds from ISO 25 to 5,000. The speed is set automatically in 1/3-step increments; it can also be set manually from ISO 6 to 6,400 in 1/3-step increments.
Film is loaded automatically and advanced to the first frame when the camera back is closed. You have the choice of single-frame or continuous shooting at approximately 2.5 frames per second; the film counter reveals frame number. Film is rewound automatically at the end of the roll, or after 36 exposures with a midroll rewind option. The Canon EOS Elan IIe uses any Canon EF lens.
