Great camera! I wish Canon would build a DSLR that's as quiet. You'd think it would be easy in a DSLR, since there are no motors to move the film back and forth. The other day a friend's horse almost shot straight up in the air when my 5DII's shutter fired. "Cowboy" has seen me with other cameras and heard other shutters more times than I can count, but for some reason he really didn't like the sound of a 5DII!

I never could get Eye Control to work well for me. I wear eyeglasses, but that's not really the problem. I discovered that I tend to look all around the frame constantly while I shoot, so 7E and EOS-3 where I tried to use Eye Control were going crazy trying to track my eye movement. I think I got in the habit of doing that working with rangefinder cameras years ago, because many have 110 or 115% viewfinders with brightline displays showing the image area. Those are nice because you can see what's just outside the frame, too, and recompose if you wish to include it. After a few weeks struggling with Eye Control I just turned it off and never used it again. Sort of a shame, it seemed such a cool idea! Next best thing to a camera that can read your mind!

I also was never a big fan of the vertical grip for the 7E/EOS-33. You have to remove it to install fresh batteries from the top... I wonder whut genius thot that was a good idea?

You know, maybe we should have tried to pass that off as a new DSLR model... Some sort of full frame 7-series with Eye Control. That would make a few folks do backflips. :D

I have one similar to that and it produces.

It produces 21.5 MP Images.

( really though image resolution depends on scanner resolution )

I had that exact camera 15-20 yrs ago. The eye control AF was a neat idea and worked OK. I wonder why they haven't tried to implement it into digital SLRs.

LOL! Thanks guys!
I'll try to test it on the weekend and as soon as I get some pics revealed, I'll post them here.
So far, I just love the eye controlled focus. It seems to work for me...
