The EOS 3 was one of the last film cameras from Canon, and it brought with it a range of advanced and unique features that make it a great choice even today. This excellent video review takes a look at the camera and how it holds up in 2021.
Coming to you from Benj Haisch, this awesome video review takes a look at the Canon EOS 3 film camera. The EOS 3 had a very unique and interesting feature: eye-controlled autofocus, which allowed the user to select an autofocus point simply by looking at it. As Haisch mentions, he does not use the eye-controlled autofocus much, but many photographers still laud it today for both its novelty and its generally decent performance. That being said, it is not perfect, but technology has advanced quite a bit since 1998, and I am willing to bet a modern implementation would be much more reliable, and I know my eye could move an autofocus point around the frame faster than I could move it with my thumb and the joystick. Even if you would not make use of that, the EOS 3 was one of Canon's last and most advanced film cameras, and it also uses the EF mount, so you can easily use all your full frame DSLR lenses on it seamlessly. If you are serious about film photography and looking for a camera that can keep up with professional demands, the EOS 3 is a great choice. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Haisch.
