To commemorate Canon’s total production of 60 million 35mm full-size still cameras since the company’s establishment, this special EOS 10 model was marketed. The exterior sported a metallic-gray finish and the special EF 35-135mm zoom lens also came in the same color. The camera itself was the same as the EOS 10.

AF System TTL phase detection. AF modes: One-Shot AF and predictive AI Servo AF. When the Full Auto mode is set, subject movement is detected and the AF mode switches automatically between One-Shot AF (for a still subject) and AI Servo AF (for a moving subject). Even in the One-Shot AF mode, focusing is continuous. If the subject starts to move, the Predictive/AI Servo AF mode takes effect automatically. AF operating range at ISO 100: EV 0 – 18. Multi-BASIS (3 focusing points ) for the AF sensor.
