CANON ANNOUNCES THE NEW EOS 300V:

A BOLD DESIGN MOVE FOR CANON'S BEST SELLING SLR

Canon, a leader in photographic and imaging technology, launches the next generation Canon EOS 300V. Canon is launching the EOS 300V to build on the success of its predecessor and to become the benchmark for auto focus (AF) SLR cameras.

The EOS 300V is the successor to Canon's number one best seller AF SLR, the EOS 300. Combining a bold and innovative design with new and improved features, the EOS 300V is set to follow in its footsteps.

The Canon EOS 300V heralds a new look for Canon SLR cameras with a smaller body and a stylish new low-contrast, two-tone metallic finish which does not compromise looks for performance.

Mark Robinson, Marketing Manager, Canon Consumer Imaging says, "The EOS 300V is evidence that we continue to invest heavily in the analogue market. In today's competitive SLR market, it is imperative that we continue to offer consumers not only exceptional SLR products but also an extensive range of EF lenses and accessories to provide users with the highest quality results."

Technology

A new microcomputer and improved AF algorithm and AF sequence means that the EOS 300V now offers users the fastest AF speed in its class. This allows the EOS 300V's improved predictive AF focusing to be on a par with that of higher end models in the Canon range.

The EOS 300V's newly developed AF point superimposed (SI) display enables users to see when focus has been achieved or when the AF point has been selected. Whilst the easy viewing LCD panel is now 2.8 times larger and allows users to observe a selection of shooting data including three new additions: Shooting mode, Film Advance mode, and the Date and Time on Quartz Data Model. The LCD panel can also be illuminated for easy viewing.

Also new to this model is an added Programmed Image Control function of "Flash off" mode to disable the flash or external speedlites for places where flash photography is not permitted or inappropriate. Other extra features include a metal lens mount and improved battery life.

A new coreless motor and an improved mirror-locking system allow the EOS 300V to reach an improved film advance speed of 2.5 frames per second. The new film advanced mode button allows users to set one of three film advance modes: single frame shooting, continuous shooting and self-timer control in the Creative Zone mode.

The grip of the EOS 300V has also been redesigned for optimum comfort and the Command dial on the right shoulder of the camera now enables one-hand operation for added functionality.

Other features include the seven AF point CMOS sensor, which enables the camera to focus on off centre subjects and the 35-Zone metering which takes readings from 35 different zones of the frame and compares the results with built-in pre-defined patterns. In conjunction with the focusing points the camera detects difficult lighting situations and adjusts the exposure accordingly. The EOS 300V also has a built in retractable E-TTL autoflash, which is linked to the multiple focusing point, and when the flash pops up the red eye reduction mode is activated.

Accessories

The EOS 300V comes equipped with a new collection of accessories such as: Battery Pack BP-220 (dedicated to EOS 300V), Semi-hard Case EH 15-L, Eye Cup EF and Rubber Frame EF.

EOS 300V Kits

The following new lenses have also been launched simultaneously to allow users to gain optimum results:

  • EF 28-90mm f/4-5.6 II and EF 28-90mm f/4-5.6 II USM
  • EF 28-105mm f/4-5.6 and EF 28-105mm f/4-5.6 USM
  • EF 90-300mm f/4.5-5.6 and EF 90-300mm f/4.5-5.6 USM

The EOS 300V is available in a range of single and twin kits. The single kit consists of the EOS 300V body and is available with one of the following new lenses: EF 28-90mm f/4-5.6 II, EF 28-90mm f/4-5.6 II USM or the EF 28-105mm f/4-5.6 USM. The single kit comes with a wide strap, body cap RF3, eyecup EB, and 2xCR-2 lithium batteries.

The EOS 300V twin kit offers users the same choice as the single kits but also features the addition of either the EF75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 III or the EF75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 USM III. The twin kit comes with camera bag, two rolls of film, a wide strap, body cap RF3, eyecup EB, and 2xCR-2 lithium batteries.

A date model is also available for users who wish to have the option of adding dates on the prints, as well as wireless remote control functions.

Manufacturer description #2

The EOS 300V combines high-end features with a metallic, compact, lightweight and robust design. Seven focusing points, and the fastest AF area in its class*), mean that the camera focuses quickly. The active focusing point super imposes in red in the viewfinder. The exposure metering system uses 35 zones, linked to the active focusing point. The command dial has been moved to the right, enabling you to operate all the main controls with one hand. Besides the usual 5 basic Programmed Image Control shooting modes, there is a new mode "flash-off" which disables the built-in flash, or an attached Speedlite. The LCD panel has been moved to the back of the camera and is about three times larger than the panel on the EOS 300. The camera has a wide choice of accessories and the metal EF mount is compatible with over 60 EF lenses.

Cannot perform comparison

Cannot compare the lens to itself.

Image stabilizer

A technology used for reducing or even eliminating the effects of camera shake. Gyro sensors inside the lens detect camera shake and pass the data to a microcomputer. Then an image stabilization group of elements controlled by the microcomputer moves inside the lens and compensates camera shake in order to keep the image static on the imaging sensor or film.

The technology allows to increase the shutter speed by several stops and shoot handheld in such lighting conditions and at such focal lengths where without image stabilizer you have to use tripod, decrease the shutter speed and/or increase the ISO setting which can lead to blurry and noisy images.

Original name

Lens name as indicated on the lens barrel (usually on the front ring). With lenses from film era, may vary slightly from batch to batch.

Format

Format refers to the shape and size of film or image sensor.

35mm is the common name of the 36x24mm film format or image sensor format. It has an aspect ratio of 3:2, and a diagonal measurement of approximately 43mm. The name originates with the total width of the 135 film which was the primary medium of the format prior to the invention of the full frame digital SLR. Historically the 35mm format was sometimes called small format to distinguish it from the medium and large formats.

APS-C is an image sensor format approximately equivalent in size to the film negatives of 25.1x16.7mm with an aspect ratio of 3:2.

Medium format is a film format or image sensor format larger than 36x24mm (35mm) but smaller than 4x5in (large format).

Angle of view

Angle of view describes the angular extent of a given scene that is imaged by a camera. It is used interchangeably with the more general term field of view.

As the focal length changes, the angle of view also changes. The shorter the focal length (eg 18mm), the wider the angle of view. Conversely, the longer the focal length (eg 55mm), the smaller the angle of view.

A camera's angle of view depends not only on the lens, but also on the sensor. Imaging sensors are sometimes smaller than 35mm film frame, and this causes the lens to have a narrower angle of view than with 35mm film, by a certain factor for each sensor (called the crop factor).

This website does not use the angles of view provided by lens manufacturers, but calculates them automatically by the following formula: 114.6 * arctan (21.622 / CF * FL),

where:

CF – crop-factor of a sensor,
FL – focal length of a lens.

Mount

A lens mount is an interface — mechanical and often also electrical — between a camera body and a lens.

A lens mount may be a screw-threaded type, a bayonet-type, or a breech-lock type. Modern camera lens mounts are of the bayonet type, because the bayonet mechanism precisely aligns mechanical and electrical features between lens and body, unlike screw-threaded mounts.

Lens mounts of competing manufacturers (Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony etc.) are always incompatible. In addition to the mechanical and electrical interface variations, the flange focal distance can also be different.

The flange focal distance (FFD) is the distance from the mechanical rear end surface of the lens mount to the focal plane.

Lens construction

Lens construction – a specific arrangement of elements and groups that make up the optical design, including type and size of elements, type of used materials etc.

Element - an individual piece of glass which makes up one component of a photographic lens. Photographic lenses are nearly always built up of multiple such elements.

Group – a cemented together pieces of glass which form a single unit or an individual piece of glass. The advantage is that there is no glass-air surfaces between cemented together pieces of glass, which reduces reflections.

Focal length

The focal length is the factor that determines the size of the image reproduced on the focal plane, picture angle which covers the area of the subject to be photographed, depth of field, etc.

Speed

The largest opening or stop at which a lens can be used is referred to as the speed of the lens. The larger the maximum aperture is, the faster the lens is considered to be. Lenses that offer a large maximum aperture are commonly referred to as fast lenses, and lenses with smaller maximum aperture are regarded as slow.

In low-light situations, having a wider maximum aperture means that you can shoot at a faster shutter speed or work at a lower ISO, or both.

Closest focusing distance

The minimum distance from the focal plane (film or sensor) to the subject where the lens is still able to focus.

Closest working distance

The distance from the front edge of the lens to the subject at the maximum magnification.

Magnification ratio

Determines how large the subject will appear in the final image. For example, a magnification ratio of 1:1 means that the image of the subject formed on the film or sensor will be the same size as the subject in real life. For this reason, a 1:1 ratio is often called "life-size".

Manual focus override in autofocus mode

Allows to perform final focusing manually after the camera has locked the focus automatically. Note that you don't have to switch camera and/or lens to manual focus mode.

Manual focus override in autofocus mode

Allows to perform final focusing manually after the camera has locked the focus automatically. Note that you don't have to switch camera and/or lens to manual focus mode.

Electronic manual focus override is performed in the following way: half-press the shutter button, wait until the camera has finished the autofocusing and then focus manually without releasing the shutter button using the focusing ring.

Electromagnetic diaphragm control system

Provides highly accurate diaphragm control and stable auto exposure performance during continuous shooting.

Manual diaphragm

The diaphragm must be stopped down manually by rotating the detent aperture ring.

Preset diaphragm

The lens has two rings, one is for pre-setting, while the other is for normal diaphragm adjustment. The first ring must be set at the desired aperture, the second ring then should be fully opened for focusing, and turned back for stop down to the pre-set value.

Semi-automatic diaphragm

The lens features spring mechanism in the diaphragm, triggered by the shutter release, which stops down the diaphragm to the pre-set value. The spring needs to be reset manually after each exposure to re-open diaphragm to its maximum value.

Automatic diaphragm

The camera automatically closes the diaphragm down during the shutter operation. On completion of the exposure, the diaphragm re-opens to its maximum value.

Fixed diaphragm

The aperture setting is fixed at F/ on this lens, and cannot be adjusted.

Number of blades

As a general rule, the more blades that are used to create the aperture opening in the lens, the rounder the out-of-focus highlights will be.

Some lenses are designed with curved diaphragm blades, so the roundness of the aperture comes not from the number of blades, but from their shape. However, the fewer blades the diaphragm has, the more difficult it is to form a circle, regardless of rounded edges.

At maximum aperture, the opening will be circular regardless of the number of blades.

Weight

Excluding case or pouch, caps and other detachable accessories (lens hood, close-up adapter, tripod adapter etc.).

Maximum diameter x Length

Excluding case or pouch, caps and other detachable accessories (lens hood, close-up adapter, tripod adapter etc.).

For lenses with collapsible design, the length is indicated for the working (retracted) state.

Weather sealing

A rubber material which is inserted in between each externally exposed part (manual focus and zoom rings, buttons, switch panels etc.) to ensure it is properly sealed against dust and moisture.

Lenses that accept front mounted filters typically do not have gaskets behind the filter mount. It is recommended to use a filter for complete weather resistance when desired.

Fluorine coating

Helps keep lenses clean by reducing the possibility of dust and dirt adhering to the lens and by facilitating cleaning should the need arise. Applied to the outer surface of the front and/or rear lens elements over multi-coatings.

Filters

Lens filters are accessories that can protect lenses from dirt and damage, enhance colors, minimize glare and reflections, and add creative effects to images.

Lens hood

A lens hood or lens shade is a device used on the end of a lens to block the sun or other light source in order to prevent glare and lens flare. Flare occurs when stray light strikes the front element of a lens and then bounces around within the lens. This stray light often comes from very bright light sources, such as the sun, bright studio lights, or a bright white background.

The geometry of the lens hood can vary from a plain cylindrical or conical section to a more complex shape, sometimes called a petal, tulip, or flower hood. This allows the lens hood to block stray light with the higher portions of the lens hood, while allowing more light into the corners of the image through the lowered portions of the hood.

Lens hoods are more prominent in long focus lenses because they have a smaller viewing angle than that of wide-angle lenses. For wide angle lenses, the length of the hood cannot be as long as those for telephoto lenses, as a longer hood would enter the wider field of view of the lens.

Lens hoods are often designed to fit onto the matching lens facing either forward, for normal use, or backwards, so that the hood may be stored with the lens without occupying much additional space. In addition, lens hoods can offer some degree of physical protection for the lens due to the hood extending farther than the lens itself.

Teleconverters

Teleconverters increase the effective focal length of lenses. They also usually maintain the closest focusing distance of lenses, thus increasing the magnification significantly. A lens combined with a teleconverter is normally smaller, lighter and cheaper than a "direct" telephoto lens of the same focal length and speed.

Teleconverters are a convenient way of enhancing telephoto capability, but it comes at a cost − reduced maximum aperture. Also, since teleconverters magnify every detail in the image, they logically also magnify residual aberrations of the lens.

Lens caps

Scratched lens surfaces can spoil the definition and contrast of even the finest lenses. Lens covers are the best and most inexpensive protection available against dust, moisture and abrasion. Safeguard lens elements - both front and rear - whenever the lens is not in use.
