For Sale on ebay:

The EOS 5 is the world's first 35mm SLR camera with Eye Controlled Focus. The camera has five focusing points (||+||). You just look at the desired focusing point to select it and the camera autofocuses at that point. It was a dream feature. A focusing point can also be selected manually. The camera will work with all canon EF lens and all canon EZ flashes.

The EOS 5 is a professional calibre camera, coming one step down from the EOS 1n, the original professional EOS model. This camera has taken some fantastic photos including holidays overseas and used by our professional photographer for our wedding. Thanks to the existence of digital SLR, you can now pick up one of the best film cameras for a bargain price!

This EOS 5 SLR film camera body was purchased in 1999 for $1350. It is in excellent condition and has been well looked after.

Other outstanding features include: 

  • 1/8000 second shutter speed
  • 1/200 second flash-synch
  • Whisper Drive mechanism for film advance - very quiet operation
  • Eye-controlled autofocus function
  • Auto-focus with Canon EF and compatible lenses (not supplied)
  • 16-zone evaluative light metering linked to the five focusing points
  • 3.5% spot metering at center
  • centerweighted averaging metering
  • shutter speed-priority AE, aperture-priority AE, Intelligent program AE, depth-of-field AE
  • Programmed Image Control modes
  • metered manual
  • Built-in flash
  • 5 fully auto creative modes plus program mode, aperture and shutter priority or full manual
  • Secondary thumb wheel control at the rear, which allows the user to operate the camera single-handedly when in manual mode
