This is a basic feature listing for the Canon EOS 700 / 700 QD.
Canon EOS 700 / 700 QD:
An interesting, strange and ultimately failed experiment. But you cant fault Canon for creativity here. This camera had a removable mode dial with two separate sides. One side had icon modes (one icon was even of a martini glass - hows that for sophisticated?) and the other had a program AE mode and a bunch of shutter speeds for Tv shooting. The idea being, I guess, that the camera had two personalities - one easy-shoot for consumers and one with a tiny bit of metering control. The camera was introduced with Canons only powered zoom lens - another interesting experiment which was soon abandoned.

A note about names. The reason certain camera bodies may have multiple names is because Canon often use different model names for different regional markets. This usually applies only to consumer and some midrange products, and mainly to the USA and Japan. Whereas the international name is usually just a number or number/letter combination, the USA name will often be some cool or tough-sounding name such as Rebel. Canon Japan, on the other hand, typically use cute marketing names such as Kiss for their consumer products. Under certain rare circumstances there may be actual differences between the differently named products. For example, Japanese versions of the product may support wireless remotes whereas other versions may not.
In addition, note that date-back equipped versions of many film bodies are and were available, often with QD (quartz date) or DATE added to their product names. Japanese versions of consumer and midrange film cameras, however, almost always have date printing as a standard feature.
I generally organize the information by the European/Australasian name, since its usually a logical numeric system. Basically, the fewer the digits the more expensive the camera. Thus the 1000 cameras are consumer, the 100 cameras are advanced amateur, the 10, 5 and 3 cameras are semi-professional and the 1 cameras are professional. The terms consumer and professional arent judgement terms here - just Canons descriptions of the market segments to which the cameras are aimed.
