- (September 05, 2004) This is a camera that can satisfy the demands of the beginner to the professional photographer. With the five-icon functions that have become so popular with the novice photographers the camera is almost foolproof. The camera also has the most advanced features of any camera in its classs, which includes aperture prioity or shutter-speed priority or the user can choose to set the aperture and shutter-speed to match what the situation demands. I take it everywhere, and with the optional battery holder, which uses rechargable AA batteries, I have power to spare and can charge one set while I'm using another. All the Maxima lenses will fit it, which gives this camera's user a large ar
- (May 05, 2004) This is the successor to the EOS Elan 7. It is what the Elan 7 could have been, should have been, and, finally, is. Though the Elan 7 didn't leave much to be desired, there were a couple of modifications that would have made it the perfect camera for intermediate to advanced photographers. These improvements are an illuminated external LCD, better light metering, and faster AF. The new finish and emblems are gorgeous. The finish is extremely matte, so it's very dark and handsome, and the Elan 7n logo is now a relief on a plaque attached to the body that's also holographic, instead of the painted-on white and red logo of the old Elan 7. Though this has nothing to do with its ability to pro

It keeps my nose far enough away from the monitor screen so I'm not constantly smudging it. Some reviews state that it fits the camera loosely and can fall off. I have never had this problem.
- (09/13/2013) I bought this in order to have faster access to my photo equipment than I was getting with a backpack. And it does a good job. I have only used it three times, but one was with a five mile hike. I was carrying a camera and three lenses up to 300mm, a water bottle, a stack of screw-on camera filters, a couple of snacks, a folding stool, a tripod and head, and various accessories like a cable release and memory cards. The vest never did get in the way. I even found that the snap hooks for the earbud wires was good to keep the strap of my stool from slipping off of my shoulder. Nice, roomy pockets and nice, cool cotton. Don't know what I would recommend to improve it.
- (09/05/2013) I bought this remote switch used and you can not tell the difference from a new one. Adorama's E+ rating is a true representation of the actual condition of a previously used unit and that is why I continue to do business with Adorama, because they can be trusted
