Canon has expanded it's evolutionary camera design concept into its third generation EOS Elan with the new Elan 7. Canon EOS cameras have long been the top choice of serious photographers worldwide - celebrated for their user friendly design, professional precision and uncompromising quality, this new family of EOS Elan cameras is faster, sharper, more rugged and more intuitive than ever before -with many features that outperform other cameras in their class.

Combined in this outfit with the highly versatile Canon 28-90mm autofocus zoom lens, the Elan 7 retains many of the advanced features of the extremely popular Elan II, while adding a number of new features starting with the re-design of its exterior.

The camera's compact body incorporates a durable metal top cover and a simplified control layout for easier access to the camera's features and functions.

The Elan 7 also includes a built-in, retractable flash unit with wide-angle covering power up to 28mm. The flash exposure control uses 3-zone TTL metering linked to all 7 focusing points. In the Full Auto and Programmed Image Control modes, the built-in flash pops up and fires automatically in low-light or back-lit situations. In the Creative Zone modes, flash can be used at the user's discretion.

At 4 frames per second, the EOS Elan 7 offers the fastest continuous shooting speed in its class. When set for the AI Servo mode for tracking moving subjects, maximum speed is 3.5 fps. In addition, the camera utilizes an improved version of Canon's exclusive Whisper Drive transport system, making it the quietest EOS System camera available.

Using a proprietary CMOS sensor chip, Canon was able to design the new camera with 7 focusing points which are clearly visible in the viewfinder, giving the photographer greater focusing flexibility. All focusing points are linked providing sharp focus and precise exposure instantly, regardless of subject position. Line-of-sight detection response has been cut in half compared to the Elan II. Manual focusing point selection has been made faster and easier with the addition of arrow keys located inside the camera's Quick Control dial. By depressing the toggle-like buttons, users can quickly focus around the frame without ever removing their eye from the viewfinder.

Using the Command Dial on the camera, users have immediate access to 11 different shooting modes including Night Scene, Action, Close-up, Landscape, Portrait, Program, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, Manual and Depth-of-Field AE. Additionally, the camera's 13 Custom Functions can quickly be accessed through the Command Dial. Within the 13 Custom Functions, 34 different camera settings are possible.

As with all EOS System cameras, the Elan 7 series is compatible with all 56 EF-series lenses as well as the latest Speedlite 420EX and Battery Pack BP-300.

  • Experience the speed
    The autofocus tracking speed of the EOS Elan 7 rivals that of the leading top-of-the-line cameras available today. With a top shutter speed of 1/4000 of a second and fastest in its class 4 fps film advance, the Elan 7 Series is a prime choice for demanding sports or wildlife photographers.
  • New Ergonomic Design
    The Canon EOS line boasts a new ergonomic design. The Elan 7 Series is now smaller and more compact, with controls placed intuitively, in a user-friendly design, for a superior shooting experience.
  • Unparalleled Strength
    The construction of the camera body is newly reinforced, with strategically placed metal top and front cover plates, for rugged reliability in any environment.
  • Near Silent Shooting Mode
    New shooting possibilities open when you shoot in silence. Whisper Drive transport brings near silent shooting, when used with Canon's exclusive USM lenses.
  • Exciting System Accessories
    In most any situation you find yourself, the versatile selection of exciting system accessories and lenses for the Canon EOS ELAN will meet your needs.

    Comments about Canon EOS Elan 7 SLR Camera - w/ Canon 28-90 Auto Focus Lens:

    Canon film cameras are wonderful. This camera is great for anyone who is thinking about getting a digital but as you know digital cameras are always getting outdated as new digitals are being made, but one camera remains, the film camera. This camera is great, as all canon film cameras are, for black and white as well as color. This camera takes great actions and sport pictures. I was new to the whole "slr camera" crowd but quickly leanred because of the ease of use which the camera was designed with. The camera also has some great features for those who have a little more experience with cameras, like changing the number of exposures, changing the shutter speed, and many more. Even if you already own a digital slr i would recommend buying this camera because there is just something better about the pictures from a film camera compared to a digital. One thing that is better is you dont have to worry about losing the picture, or the picturing looking "digitalized" (you know what i mean by that, we all experienced it atleast once with a digital).

    I have had this Canon camera since June of 2006 and it is a wonderful camera. As with all Canon film cameras (I own several) it will not let you down. Fast, quite, and does what you want it to do, when you want it to. Easy to operate. Lots of features for the price. It won't let you down.
