The Canon EOS Kiss 7 is the latest addition to the company’s best-selling EOS Kiss series of affordable AF SLR film cameras. Featuring a high-speed-processing microcomputer and new algorithms, the EOS Kiss 7 achieves the fastest AF speed in its class*. Moreover, the new camera’s revised predictive AF sequence for shooting moving objects enables class-leading* continuous shooting performance of 2.5 frames per second (fps) in AI Servo AF mode, while a revised film advance mechanism boosts film-winding speed for three fps shooting in One-Shot AF mode.
The EOS Kiss 7 offers 7-point wide-area autofocus – five focusing points arranged horizontally within the viewfinder and one each above and below the center point – ensuring accurate autofocus performance with unrestricted framing, regardless of the position of the subject within the viewfinder. The model also utilizes an enhanced 35-zone evaluative metering sensor linked to each focusing point to deliver ideal exposure every time. Moreover, a maximum shutter speed of 1/4000 second and an increased X-sync speed of 1/125 second permits users a wide range of creative possibilities that are usually beyond this camera class.
The EOS Kiss 7 offers a Guide No. 13 (at ISO 100 in m) built-in flash unit for increased photographic freedom compared with the Kiss 5 predecessor model, which featured a Guide No. 12 flash. Furthermore, the camera’s E-TTL II (Evaluative Through-The-Lens) autoflash system, which operates with the built-in flash as well as EX-series Speedlite flash units, utilizes distance information provided by Canon EF lenses to achieve natural balance between subject and background.
The compact (130 x 90 x 64 mm), lightweight (365 g) EOS Kiss 7 builds on the innovative design characteristics of the Kiss 5. Featuring an ergonomic handgrip clad in black rubber for enhanced holding comfort, the Kiss 7 exudes sophistication with a dark metallic body color and new materials. Also, a “cross key” control pad has been added to make such operations as selecting the AF point easy, and all main operating controls have been grouped together on the handgrip side of the camera to enable the operation of most functions with one hand.
The rear panel of the EOS Kiss 7 incorporates a large-size (30 x 30 mm) information display with backlight, enabling camera settings to be seen clearly even in dark conditions. And, for the first time in the Kiss series, the camera offers a range of Custom Functions, including six shooting settings and safety features such as a shutter release lock, which prevents shooting when there is no film in the camera or if no lens is attached, and a warning beeper which alerts users to the possibility of handshake as a result of the shutter speed setting.
