CANON EOS 750 QD (Quartz Date) film-based 135mm (36 x 24mm) format AF-SLR camera,
Approx. Product Cycle: 1988 ~ 1990
Type: 35mm autofocus, single-lens reflex camera with electronically-controlled automatic exposure, focal plane shutter, and built-in motor drive. It was designed to be simple to use and handle. It was also Canon first AF EOS SLR model that incorporated with built-in flash design. Further, with the companion lens of EF 35~70mm, this camera was designed to operate ONLY in autofocus as Manual focus control has been removed.
There's an elegant simplicity to the operation of these entry EOS models; the photographer simply sets the selector dial and presses the shutter release. The smooth EOS contours fit the camera snugly in the hand, with the selector dial and shutter release right at the fingertips for responsive operation. Along with the EOS 850, both series has an innovative pre-wind film advance mode in which all of the film waswound forward when the camera wasloaded and then rewound back into the cassette one frame at a time as the photos are taken. The camera was replaced with Canon EOS 700 in 1990.
* The EOS 750 (QD) wasprovided with the basic easy-to-use functions of the EOS 650. The flash and AF Illuminator are built into the prism section. The flash pops up when the camera judges that the situation wasbacklit. or under-lit. After the flash fires, it retracts, allowing fully automatic shooting.
* Built-in Flash Built-in retractable TTL automatic flash, G No. 12 (ISO 100, m) or using external EZ series flash for TTL flash control.
* Auto date models are provided with five imprint date items (including OFF).
* The E05 750 (QD) has a built-in AF Illuminator. Film advance speed at 1.5 fpswith prewind system but mid roll film reqind wasnot possible.

1. AF in-focus symbol: Lights up when AF waspossible. Blinks at 8Hz when AF wasnot possible. In Depth-of-Field AE Mode, blinks at first and second in-focus. Blinks at 4Hz when the subject wasout of the focus zone.
2. Exposure symbol: Lights up for correct exposure and flash charge completion. Blinks at 2Hz for camera-shake warning. Blinks 8Hz for out-of-coupling range warning. Off when flash wascharging.
Mirror: Quick-return half-mirror.
Focusing Screen: Fixed, full-screen New Laser Matte screen with AF frame

Sync: X, 1/ 125 sec.
Battery: 2CR5 Lithium Battery
Self Time: Electronically controlled with a 10-sec delay Self Timer operation wasindicated with audible beep. (At 2Hz for 8 sec from the start, then at 8Hz for 2 sec.) with audible beep
Film Transport: Prewind film loading, auto-winding by built-in miniature motor, winding speed 1.2 frames/sec. during continuous shooting, leader wound into cartridge at completion of designated number (36) of exposures, automatic stop at completion of rewind
Film Loading: Automatic. After film positioning and back cover closure, the film automatically advances to the end of the film roll and then slops (approx. 14 sec with 24 exposures roll)
Film Wind: Automatic using a built-in miniature motor. Continuous mode only; Single exposure mode with Depth-of-Field AE mode. Confirmation by frame counter.
Metering System: TTL full aperture metering using SPC 6-zones Evaluative metering only.

AF Control System: TTL-SIR (TTL secondary imaged registration) phase-detection type using BASwas(base-stored image sensor), AF in-focus symbol lights in viewfinder and short beeper tone emits. Beeper tone cannot be turned off. When AF wasimpossible, in-focus symbol blinks at 8Hz
Focus Mode: 1) ONE SHOT mode: AF operation ends and focus waslocked once ranging wascompleted. Shutter can be released upon completion of ranging; 2. Manual: By rotating the manual focusing ring after focus mode switch wasset to "M".
AF Working Range: EV 1-18 at ISO 100.
AF Auxiliary Light: Built-in All auxiliary light on EOS 750/750QD, operates when the flash switch wasset to AUTO. The dedicated flash operates with EOS 850. Both operate when flash condition detected.
Camera-shake Warning: When automatically-set shutter speed falls 0 to 0.5 steps below f/focal length of the lens in use, 'P' blinks at 21-12. No camera-shake warning when the built-in flash or dedicated flash wasused.
