* The EOS 650 (QD) is the first AF single-lens reflex camera with a completely electronic EOS system, integrated metering and motor drive focusing built into the EF lenses. It also incorporates new proprietary technology such as an ultrasonic motor "USM" and a highly sensitive sensor "BASIS."
* The EOS 650 also has a wide range of other features such as a built-in motor drive (3 frames/sec.) and six program AE modes including depth-of-field priority AE.
* The QD model supports the following five imprint date items: date (three types), day/hr/min, any 6-digit numeral, a 4-digit frame counter, and imprint OFF.
* Use of the 300EZ enables use of AF Illuminator for autofocusing in low light.

(1) Seven-segment LCD digit and character display
* Shutter speed/aperture value-flashes at 2 Hz to give out-of-metering
* Metered manual exposure level (OF, oo, CL)
* Depth of field AE (dEP 1, dEP 2)
(2) LCD mask character display

Camera-Shake Warning: Operates for program AE, aperture- priority AE, and depth of field AE modes. When automatically set shutter speed falls 0 to 0.5 steps below focal length of the lens in use, the electronic beeper sounds.
Automatic Flash (using Speedlite 420EZ/300EZ with the camera set at "P"):
A-TTL flash auto -The correct aperture value is automatically set, using the camera's
A-TTL program and the flash's near-infrared preflash. X-sync speed is also automatically set between 1/60 and 1/125 second upon flash charge completion.
