When the film is loaded, the entire roll is first wound onto the take-up spool. Then each time a picture is taken, the film winds back into the cartridge frame by frame. This prewind system prevents the ruining of exposed frames if the camera back is opened accidentally. The EOS 750 QD is also Canon’s first SLR with a built-in flash.

The built-in flash pops up automatically in backlit or low-light conditions. After the picture is taken with the flash, the flash head retracts automatically.

The One-Shot AF mode allows shutter release when focus is achieved. Other features include TTL full-aperture metering with a 6-zone evaluative sensor (well received in the EOS 650 and later models), Intelligent Program AE, and depth-of-field AE.
