The EOS 3000 combines simplicity with sophistication offering complete SLR functionality at an affordable price. The design and ease of use of the EOS 3000 allows the user to capture the shot that they require. A carefully designed body and tough exterior which is a handy size and offers convenient operation. A bright viewfinder details all the exposure information. The command dial used in conjunction with the large LCD screen displays all the required film and battery information as well as chosen camera settings. A wide area 3 point autofocus system means that the EOS 3000 is able to rapidly identify the main subject of an image and maintain a sharp focus, even with subjects on the move. The EOS 3000 also incorporates Canon's AIM control system (Advanced Intergrated Multipoint). This allows the EOS 3000 to analyse the information provided by the three focusing points and the 6 zone evaluative light metering sensor.
