Canon EF camera with FD 50mm f:1-4 lens. The Canon EF (often referred to as the Black Beauty) is a manual focus 35mm single-lens reflex camera, produced by Canon between 1973 and 1978.

Key features:
- speeds from 1/1000 to 1/2 second even without batteries
- full exposure information in viewfinder
- concentric shutter release & shutter speed dial, the latter overlapping the front edge of the camera, allowing easy change of shutter speed with one finger
- incorporates voltage control circuit, allowing use of modern 1.5V batteries without needing any exposure compensation (it was designed for a 1.3V PX625 mercury cell)
- multiple exposure button
- exposure lock button for use with automatic exposure
- film can be advanced rapidly to first frame without having to release the shutter (3 successive strokes of the wind-on lever)
- depth-of-field preview, stopped-down metering, and mirror lock
- vertical-travelling shutter allows flash sync at 1/125 sec.
- silicon photocell allows metering at low light levels (EV 2 to EV 18)
- PC flash terminal has spring-loaded cover; the terminal is therefore kept covered and clean when not in use, and the cover cannot be lost
