Product Description

Product Description

The EOS 33 is a very nice camera and it feels very much like a Pro camera. Very quick and quiet shutter and well built with lots of features. Anyone who is used to using cameras like EOS 300, 500, 3000 etc, this is the next step up and you will notice the difference. The Canon EOS 33 / Elan 7 is a ruggedly constructed SLR film camera with an alumite coating on its body for a tough exterior. This Canon 35 mm film camera weighing 575 g (20.3 oz) with dimensions of 14.7 cm wide by 10.3 cm high by 6.9 cm deep (5.8 inches by 4.1 inches by 2.7 inches) has easy-to-operate controls and user-friendly features. Canon EF (Electro-Focus) lenses may be mounted on this SLR film camera using the bayonet-style EF mount. Autofocusing is done using an electric motor built into the lens that works using seven powerful CMOS sensors and the matrix metering system with 35 sensors. The Canon EOS 33 / Elan 7 has a pentaprism viewfinder that gives 90 percent vertical coverage and 92 percent horizontal coverage of the image. The vertical-travel shutter has curtains operated using a dedicated electromagnetic release mechanism and electronically-controlled shutter speeds ensure timely action for high-quality photographs. Shutter speeds range between 1/4000 s and 30 s increasing in half-stops and the Canon 35 mm film camera also has the bulb B settings. Four focus modes, three light metering modes, flash metering, multiple exposures with up to nine preset exposures, ten exposure modes, and built-in retractable TTL flash are highlights of this Canon 35 mm film camera.

The Canon Elan 7 uses seven focusing points, arranged in a wide cross pattern with a central "cross-type" sensor. The wider-than-usual area gives the photographer the ability to achieve a remarkably sharp, focused image instantly. This function works whether the subject is off-center, stationary, in motion, in low light, or even in low-contrast situations. The shot will still come out sharp and crisp, and without the need to recompose the shot. By using the focusing-point selection keys, the user is able to select any of the seven focus points simply by pressing a key. Representing a bold innovation in speed and usability, this feature gives an additional amount of image control back to the photographer.

A highly advanced metering system, comprised of 35-zone evaluative metering sensors, is linked to the seven focusing points. Whether shooting indoors or outside, day or night, a seamless integration of exposure and focus ensures remarkable clarity and contrast in any image. This system gives the photographer accurate control over situations that combine light and shadow or that feature strong backlight. When metering subjects against very dark or very bright backgrounds, partial-area metering measures 10 percent of the viewfinder around the chosen focusing point. This provides accurate image results when dealing with shadows or highlights. The photographer can also use the Elan 7's center-weighed metering function. This mode places greater emphasis on what it reads as the center of the frame by measuring the entire scene. No matter which function the photographer chooses, precision metering is guaranteed--whether the camera is in a vertical or horizontal position.

Giving the photographer even more creative control is the command dial. This allows manual-control light, speed, aperture, and depth of field. Shutter priority lets the photographer choose the shutter speed, while the Elan 7 automatically selects the correct aperture. This function is especially useful when capturing action shots. With aperture priority, the photographer picks the aperture setting while the camera chooses the correct shutter speed. This is helpful when control over the depth of field is essential. It's even possible to check the depth of field using the preview button.

Size Name: Camera with 28-90mm Lens Kit
I just purchased an EOS Elan 7E the last week of Feb. 2001. The Elan 7E is the Elan 7 with eye control focus added--not worth the extra $... or so since I wear bifocals and the manual says eye control can often be fooled by bifocals. Overall, I've been very impressed with the camera.
I had considered the Rebel but got turned off by the plastic body and savvy buyers' concerns about ruggedness (the Elan 7 has an aluminum body). See the reviews of the Rebel 2000 and several buyers' admonitions to buy the 28-105 USM lens rather than the cheaper--and more cheaply made--28-90 that comes standard with the "kit." I bought the 28-105 and love it even though it's ... more expensive.
If you want very detailed information about the camera, go to the Canon web site where you'll find lots of info and recommended accessories (most of which Amazon carries). In addition you can find out more detailed info about the EF line of lenses.
The camera is smooth, quiet, and feels very solid. It operates like a dream, although I was a bit overwhelmed by all of the options the camera provides and the information I had to absorb (I'd never used anything except totally manual SLRs). The 7-zone autofocus system works well but does take some getting used to. One advantage to the zone system is that you can select a single focus point (or have all 7 in operation) to help you key in on an essential detail that absolutely must be in focus.
My only gripe, and it's a big one: there's no fine focusing center spot prism and the prism is fixed (not interchangeable like some of the higher-priced bodies).

Size Name: Body Only
I recently purchased the Canon Elan 7 camera body about two months ago and am very pleased with it. I just recently started to take up photography about 5 months ago and started out with a Canon rebel 2000 Kit. Although it was a good starting camera, I quickly grew out of it and decided to get a better camera with more features. The Elan 7 was a perfect choice. I currently have a Sigma 28-300 lens with the camera and the pictures I take are excellent. The Elan 7 has all the features needed for a beginner to intermediate level photographer and I can't imagine purchasing another camera.
The camera with my sigma lens is extremely quiet, fast, and responsive. Although I still consider myself a beginner to intermediate level photographer, this camera has all the advanced features that can be used in professional photography. If you're one of those types like me who always asks the question, " Will I outgrow this camera? Will I want something better soon with more features? Is it worth the extra $$?"Answer: Get the Elan 7. You will not be disappointed.

If you want power, control, and quality in your photographs, look no further than the Canon Elan 7. Any variation is equally as good (7E,7EQD,w/lens,etc...). This past summer I purchased a Rebel G from a pawnshop and was amazed at how nice it was, considering the low price in retail stores and the fact that it was all plastic, but I soon began to notice some of it's shortcomings. The AF system was grossly outdated, as was the AE, the drive was loud and whiny, the shutter was too slow, and it just seemed to be made for somebody that would never really want to use it beyond family gatherings. Then I found out about the Elan 7. 7 focusing points that can pick out the finest line in the darkest room. 4 frames per second motor drive. Extremely silent if properly set up. All the latest technology in photography, outside of color metering, which is only available in super high-end professional 35mm cameras. The control layout is easy to learn within an hour or so, and nothing is out of reach if you are properly holding the camera. Acessories and lenses number in the thousands (counting third-party lenses, which are just as good, and less $$$). All metal construction, including the lens mount and the body plates. Still light enough to comfortably wear around your neck. And, well, you get the idea. I'm running out of room to go on, and there are so many things left over. So, to end it all out, from fully manual operation to fully automatic operation, the Canon Elan 7 has everything any non-professional could ever need.

Going from a total manual slr to the Elan 7.....I can't rave about this camera enough. From portraits, to city scapes, ocean shots to a crowded family gathering - you'll LOVE THIS CAMERA! The photos are sharp, clear (use fugi) and professional. I would skip the kit purchase and opt for an alternate lens like a 28-200 or 300 like a previous reviewer also did. If you're in the market for a great camera you'll have forever at an affordable price, you won't be sorry if you purchase the Elan 7 (also skip the 7e it's not worth the extra you pay for redundancy.
