Canon EOS RT - Camera
The Canon EOS RT is a 35mm SLR camera produced by Canon from 1989 to 1992. The camera is essentially an EOS 630/EOS 600 with a pellicle mirror. It was the first autofocus camera to feature a pellicle mirror.
“RT” stood for “Real-Time.” The fixed pellicle mirror drastically shortened the shutter-release time lag. The camera was developed for pros.
Pressing the shutter button halfway readies the camera for instant picture-taking. It takes only 0.008 sec. for the shutter’s first curtain to open and the second curtain to close after exposing the film. The camera also features a continuous shooting speed of 5 fps, predictive AI Servo AF, autobracketing, multiple exposures, six AE modes and metered manual, and 15 Custom Functions.
