History and technical features 

The Canon EOS 10 is an autofocus 35mm SLR introduced in 1990. The model name was EOS 10S in the Americas, and EOS 10QD in Japan. There was a commemorative metallic-silver version introduced in 1991 to mark Canon's 60 millionth 35mm camera sold.

The improvements over the original EOS cameras are a newly improved autofocus sensor. Focus modes include One-Shot AF for non moving subjects and AI Servo AF for moving subjects. It is able to detect and switch automatically between the autofocus modes. Shutter ranges from 30 sec. to 1/4000 sec., with B. X-sync at 1/125 sec. Similar to the EOS 750, is has a built-in flash with a guide number 12 (at ISO 100). It uses one 2CR5 lithium battery and weighs approx 625g for the body without battery.

Marketed March 1990

Original Price 140,000 yen (w/EF 35-135mm f/4-5.6 USM),
90,000 yen (body)
This camera introduced the newly-developed, Multi-BASIS AF sensor which provided three autofocusing points.

One-Shot AF and predictive AI Servo AF are featured as AF modes. In the Full Auto mode, the camera detects whether the subject is still or moving with signals received from the Multi-BASIS. The AF mode is then set automatically.

The three focusing points are red LEDs in the viewfinder’s image area. They are easy to see and any focusing point can be selected manually with a button and dial. A bar-code book was also provided to enter the bar-code for camera settings needed to achieve the effects shown in the book’s sample photos.

Type: 35mm focal-plane shutter multi-mode AF SLR camera
Picture Size: 24 x 36 mm
Normal Lens: EF 35-135mm f/4-5.6 USM
Lens Mount: EF mount
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.
Shutter: Vertical-travel, focal-plane electronic shutter. 30 sec. – 1/4000 sec., B. X-sync at 1/125 sec. (hot shoe). Shutter speed can be set in half-stop increments. Built-in electronic self-timer (with blinking LED). Built-in interval timer for intervals from 1 sec. to 23 hr. 59 min. 59 sec. for frames 2 to 36.
Viewfinder: Fixed eye-level pentaprism. 0.74x magnification and 92% coverage. New Laser Matte screen.
Viewfinder Information: AF points (3 superimposed points, active one lights in red), shutter speed, aperture setting, depth-of-field AE, camera-shake warning, AE lock, exposure compensation, in-focus indicator, flash ready, partial metering circle, manual exposure level, and other indications.
Metering & Exposure Control: Composite SPC for TTL full-aperture metering (8-zone evaluative or 8.5% partial at center) with shutter speed-priority AE, aperture-priority AE, depth-of-field AE, shiftable Intelligent program AE, Programmed Image Control modes, bar code mode, and metered manual. AE lock with partial metering enabled. Exposure compensation and autobracketing range of ±5 EV (in 1/2-stop increments). Metering range at ISO 100 and f/1.4: EV 1 – 20. Film speed range: ISO 6 to 6400. Maximum 9 multiple exposures. 15 Custom Functions.
External LCD: Shutter speed, aperture setting, film speed, depth-of-field AE, day, interval timer setting, year, month, AF mode, function indicator, exposure compensation, autobracketing steps, and other indications.
Built-in Flash: Located on pentaprism hump. Auto retractable head. TTL autoflash control (fires automatically in backlight and low-light conditions) with off-the-film metering. Guide No. 12 (at ISO 100 in m).
Power Source: One 6 V 2CR5 lithium battery
Film Loading & Advance: Align film leader at mark, then close the camera back for auto loading. Automatic film advance with built-in motor. Film advance speed: Approx. 5 fps in One-Shot AF and manual modes and approx. 3 fps in AI Servo AF mode. Also single advance.
Film Rewind: Automatic with built-in motor. Midroll rewind enabled.
