This was the world’s first AF SLR camera which incorporated the concept of silent operation. Also known as the EOS 100 and EOS 100 QD.
Like other plastic-bodied SLRs of its type, its plastic construction belies its capabilities. This camera offers Manual, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, and Program modes of shooting, plus auto/portrait/landscape/sport presets.

At time of release, "The newly-developed silent mechanisms reduced film advance noise and rewind noise by one-eighth to one-half the level of previous models. The built-in flash’s coverage adjusts automatically (auto zoom) to suit the lens focal length. Red-eye reduction, second-curtain sync, and flash exposure compensation were other flash features. The Quick Control Dial on the camera back also enables real-time exposure compensation adjustment while you looked through the viewfinder. It was a feature-laden, mid-class multi-mode 35mm AF SLR. The USM lens was a new term that stood for "Ultra Sonic Motor."" See Canon's legacy listing on their online camera museum for more information.
Don't forget your battery! This camera takes one 2CR5 battery.
