Top plate

There's not much in the way of surprises on the top plate either, though the 'illumination' button that lights up the top-plate LCD is also how you light up the rear controls. The information display gives you almost all you need to know about the camera and your settings at a quick glance, and existing EOS-1D users should be able to find their way around without much fuss.

You may notice an outline of a cover plate just in front of the flash hot-shoe. This is the only portion of the exterior chassis that isn't metal; the camera's built-in GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth antennas are housed here.
