CANON EOS-1N CUSTOM FUNCTIONS
14 Custom Functions let you make the EOS-1 N your camera
After listening to the opinions and requests of EOS-1 users, the choice of custom functions on the EOS-1 N has been expanded to 14. In addition to the increased number of custom functions, the EOS-1 N provides greater customization capability by allowing selection of up to four options (0, 1, 2, 3) on selected custom functions instead of two (0, 1) as on previous EOS cameras.
 
Function No. 1 - Automatic film rewind operation
0:
High-speed automatic rewind.
 
This function is useful for situations in which silence is required - for example, in a quiet theater or at a pro golf tournament - where the sudden noise of a camera's rewind would cause disruption.
1:
Automatic rewind prohibited (Pressing film rewind button activates high-speed rewind).
2:
Silent (low speed) automatic rewind.
3: Automatic rewind prohibited (Pressing rewind button activates silent rewind).
 
Function No. 2 - Film leader position after rewinding
0:
Rewinds film leader fully into cartridge.
 
This function is useful for individuals or news agencies who do their own film processing. The film leader is left outside the cartridge after the film is rewound automatically or in mid-roll.

1:

Leaves the film leader outside the cartridge after rewinding.
 
Function No. 3 - Film speed setting
0:
Film speed automatically set according to DX code.
 
This option is for photographers who shoot film at ISO settings determined from their own tests. Setting this function frees the photographer from having to change the film speed every time a new roll is loaded.
1:
Film speed set manually (DX code is ignored).
 
Function No. 4 - AF activation
0:
Autofocus starts when the shutter button is pressed halfway.
 

1. This option lets the photographer carry out metering and autofocusing independently.

2. For sports photography using focus prediction in Al Servo AF mode, this option lets the photographer temporarily stop the focus.

1:
Autofocus starts when the AE lock button is pressed. Exposure is locked when the shutter button is pressed halfway.
2: Autofocus starts when the shutter button is pressed. Autofocus is temporarily suspended when the AE lock button is pressed- (AE lock is not available when "2" is set.
 
Function No. 5-
Shutter speed and aperture value setting method in manual exposure mode
0:
Shutter speed set by main dial. Aperture set by quick control dial or by combined operation of exposure compensation button and main dial.
 
When making manual exposure adjustments, this function lets the photographer choose whether to use the main dial for adjusting the shutter speed or aperture value. This option is convenient for studio flash photography where the shutter is kept constant while the aperture is frequently varied to alter depth-of-field and exposure.
1:
Aperture set by main dial. Shutter speed set by quick control dial or by combined operation of exposure compensation button and main dial.
  Function No. 6 - increment used for setting shutter speed and aperture values, as well as exposure compensation and flash exposure compensation amounts
0:
Shutter speed, aperture value and all exposure compensation 1/3-step increments.
  This function lets the photographer input shutter speed and aperture settings in any increment that he or she is used to.1/2-step exposure compensation amounts set in amounts are also possible, providing wide flexibility to suit various shooting styles.
1:
Shutter speeds and aperture values set in 1-stop increments, and all exposure compensation amounts set in 1/3-step increments.
2:
Shutter speed, aperture value and all exposure compensation amounts set in 1/2-step increments.
 
Function No. 7 - Electronic manual focusing after AF completion or failure
0:
Manual focusing is possible. (This function works only with lenses with a manual focusing ring.)
 
This option disables the manual focusing capability of the electronic ring provided equipped on many USM L-series lenses, eliminating the possibility of accidentally turning ring and shifting the focus after AF is complete.
Compatible lenses:
EF28-80/2.8-4L USM, EF50/1.0L USM, EF85/1.2L USM, EF200/1.8L USM, EF300/2.8L USM, EF400/2.8L USM, EF500/4.5L USM, EF600/4L USM, EF1200/5.6L USM
1:
Manual focusing is prohibited. Manual focusing is possible by setting the lens'focus mode switch to "M".
   
 
Function No. 8 - Evaluative metering operation
0:
Evaluative metering
 
Setting this function to center-weighted average metering provides the photographer with a predictable metering pattern for determining exposure. This is useful for experienced photographers who have over many years developed an ability to accurately determine exposure combining average metering and exposure compensation.
1:
Center-weighted average metering (The LCD panel still shows the evaluative metering symbol.)
 
Function No. 9 - AEB exposure sequence
0:
Under/Correct/Over
 
2,3: These settings change the bracket sequence to "Correct/Under/Over," which is useful when shooting live subjects or changing scenes where the first shot will most likely capture the best expression or composition.
1:
Under/Correct/Over
2:
Correct/Under/Over
3:
Correct/Under/Over
 
(0 and 2: AEB operation is canceled when main switch is set to L, lens is exchanged, film is replaced or rewound, bulb exposure mode is set, flash charge completion is detected, or the clear button is pressed.) (1and 3: AEB operation is not canceled when main switch is set to L, lens is exchanged, or film is replaced or rewound. Also, in this mode, the user can activate AEB by pressing the AF mode and shooting mode selectors.)
1,3: These setting are useful for photographers who frequently use AEB, because it prevents AEB from being canceled every time the main switch is set to L, lens is exchanged, or film is rewound or exchanged. Also, in this mode, the user can activate AEB without having to open the camera's palm door.
 
Function No. 10 - Focusing point superimposed on focusing screen
0:
Focusing point superimposed in red
 
This option is for users who are annoyed by the AF frame illumination in the viewfinder, as well as for those who frequently use manual focusing to adjust the final focus.
1:
Superimpose prohibited
   
 
Function No. 11 - Focusing point selection method
0: Focusing point selector and main dial  
0: This option makes it possible to match the EOS-1 N's button operation to the photographer's existing camera (EOS-1 or EOS A2/E).
2: This option lets the user track the subject with the focusing point in real time by operating the quick control dial, which is useful when tracking a moving subject using focus prediction control in Al Servo AF.
1: Exposure compensation button and main dial
2:
Independent operation of quick control dial or exposure compensation button and main dial.
 
 
 
Function No. 12 - Mirror up operation
0:
Normal operation
  This is effective for preventing camera shake caused by mirror operation shock when making long exposures Use of a tripod is recommended.
1:
Mirror-up operation
   
 
Function No. 13 - Focusing point and spot metering
0:
Fine spot metering in center of image area
 
This function links spot metering to the manually selected focusing point. allowing the user to spot meter the subject without changing the framing of the scene.
1:
Spot meteril linked to the manually selected focusing point
 
Function No. 14 - Flash output control
0:
Automatic flash output reduction control activated
  This function prevents underexposure of strongly backlill subjects during fill-in flash photography with Canon EOS Speedlites.
1:
Automatic flash output reduction control prohibited
