| p.30 #11 · 5d M III Viewfinder illumination and af points! |
Oh btw, guys, here's the AF-illumination module taken out from the EOS-3 camera. It's been malfunctioning, so there was no problem to take it apart a bit. As you can see, there aren't 45 LEDs, but rather one, and a matrix which most probably works as a LCD which un/blocks the light from the source to the focusing screen.
This thing is quite small and doesn't seem to cost arm and leg, so it looks more weird that Canon went with this Terminator eye red-glow-VF and didn't just include LCD overlay for the on-demand grid or whatever they want to display around the AF points of the good ol' multiple point red box system of EOS-3...1D4 era.
