The Command Back 90 is an interchangeable camera back designed for exclusive use with the T90. As the name "Command" suggests, it not only records data but also controls the T90 for various types of timed photography.
The following operations are possible using the quartz controlled Command Back 90:



Macro Ring ML-2
The Macro Ring Lite ML-2 is an automatic flash unit for close-up shooting. Since it adopts the TTL control system considered the most effective method for close-up shooting, there is no need of troublesome exposure compensations. Separate flash tubes are arranged on the right and left sides, which can be fired together or independently for extra lighting versatility. The guide number is 11 (ISO 100.m).




Wireless Controller LC-2

This accessory is a remote control photography device which uses infrared rays to control the camera from a distance and is particularly useful in such areas as wildlife photography and news coverage. The Wireless Controller LC-2 consists of a transmitter and a receiver and has three modes; the standard mode, the delay mode and the auto sensing mode (activates when an object blocks the light path between the transmitter and the receiver).



Multiple Flash Accessories
This accessory is a remote control photography device which uses infrared rays to control the camera from a distance and is particularly useful in such areas as wildlife photography and news coverage. The Wireless Controller LC-2 consists of a transmitter and a receiver and has three modes; the standard mode, the delay mode and the auto sensing mode (activates when an object blocks the light path between the transmitter and the receiver).
The accessories consist of the TTL Hot Shoe Adapter the TTL Distributor, the Off-camera Shoe Adapter and the Connecting Cords 60 and 300. With the Speedlite 300TL and/or the Macro Ring Lite ML-2, automatic multiple flash photography by the TTL control system is possible using up to four flash units.

Ten eyesight correction lenses are available in powers of +3, +2, +1.5, +1, +0.5, o,, - 0.5, ˇ2, - 3 andˇ4 diopters.. They may make viewing and focusing easier if you are near or farsighted. Choose the one which is closest to your eyeglass prescription, and make a practical test if possible.



Positioning Guide
This accessory is a special stabilizer which is necessary when the T90 is used with the Camera Holder F4, the Focusing Rail, or the camera support bracket of the Speedlites 577G and 533G. Slide the Positioning Guide 90 to attach it.
The Positioning Guide 90 comes with the attachment screw. When the Camera Holder F4 or the | camera support bracket of the Speedlites 577G and 533G is used with the T90, use the attachment screw provided with the Positioning Guide 90. When the Focusing Rail is used, however, use the one provided with the Focusing Rail.

Close-up/ Macrophotography Accessories
Accessories such as the Auto Bellows, Copy Stand 5 and various extension tubes are designed for everything from simple close-up photography to life-size and magnified macro photography.

´ Cable Release Adapter T3
This is an accessory for use with the Double Cable Release when using the Auto Bellows. It is possible to use this adapter with the Release 30 or 50.


Remote Swith 60T3

The Remote Switch 60T3 is designed to be used when the camera is mounted on a tripod for close-up shooting or when using a telephoto lens with which camera-shake is a particular problem. Attach directly to the camera's remote control socket.


Lens Hood
We strongly recommend the use of a lens hood to keep out side light which may cause flare and ghost images to form on the image. Rigid Canon hoods also help to protect the lens from shock. Use only a hood which is specified for your particular lens. Most Canon hoods fit into the bayonet mount and are fixed by turning. For details please see the lens instruction manual.
