The EOS 3 35mm SLR Camera

Eleven years after launching the world's most successful range of SLR cameras, Canon has advanced camera technology a step further with the launch of the EOS-3 - a camera that further improves the speed and performance for which the EOS range is renowned. The EOS-3 incorporates the world's first area AF system, a high precision focusing system, higher speed eye-control and improved high-speed focus tracking. Such technology combined with many of the features of the EOS- 1N and, of course compatibility with the extensive range of over 50 EF lenses and accessories, make the EOS 3 the perfect choice for advanced amateurs and professionals alike. The EOS 3 design is based on that of the EOS 1N - sturdy with easily accessible controls for quick and easy execution of camera operations. A range of accessories developed specifically for the EOS 3, including a new Speedlite flash, is being launched at the same time.

I love this camera! The large, bright viewfinder makes precise manual focus (critical for macro work) really easy. And with nearly 100% coverage I rarely get surprised by edge distractions. The 45-point autofocus system, which covers about half the frame, makes it easy to focus precisely with an off-center subject. Together with the robust predictive (AI) autofocus for moving subjects, and the high frame rate for continuous shooting (7.5 fps with the PB-E2 power booster), flight shots of birds are also relatively easy. The ability to rewind mid-roll and leave the leader out lets me change film speed without wasting half a roll.
