35mm Focal-Plane Shutter SLR Camera

EOS-1N [A] [E] [J]
Marketed November 1994
Original Price 215,000 yen (body),
230,000 yen (w/Battery Pack BP-E1)

The successor to the EOS-1 and the new top-of-the-line EOS camera. With a cross-type BASIS for the AF sensor, the camera offers five focusing points which can be selected automatically or manually. The wide focusing area makes it easier to focus track moving subjects in the predictive AI Servo AF mode. The camera matches well with super telephoto lenses having a built-in USM (Ultrasonic Motor) for silent and fast operation. Exposures can be compensated in 1/2-stop or 1/3-stop increments for higher precision. The EOS-1N is highly rated by pro photographers. Very reliable and durable with a lifespan of 100,000 shutter cycles. The mechanical operation has also been refined for silent operation.

Exposure Control
Composite SPC for TTL full-aperture metering (16-zone evaluative, 9% partial at center, fine spot metering [2.3% at center], 3.5% spot metering at focusing point, and centerweighted averaging) with shutter speed-priority AE, aperture-priority AE, depth-of-field AE, Intelligent program AE, and metered manual. AE lock is automatic when focus is achieved in One-Shot AF and evaluative metering mode. Manual AE lock enabled with AE lock button in all metering modes. Exposure compensation and autobracketing range of 3 EV (in 1/3-stop increments). Maximum 9 multiple exposures. Metering range with evaluative or partial metering: EV 0 - 20. Metering range with fine spot metering at ISO 100 and f/1.4: EV 3 - 20. Film speed range: ISO 6 to 6400.
