The slope of the linear regression fit using stimuli and responses at each dioptric level provided the closed-loop accommodative gain value [31].

23-25) Some recent AIOL designs incorporate additional features to aid near vision, for example, the Crystalens AO features aspheric optic surfaces with zero spherical aberration and is also designed to arch and steepen with accommodative effort to increase the eye's dioptric power.
Additional camera features include shutter speeds from 8 seconds to 1/1000 second; an iris diaphragm; built-in flash with five control modes; an eye-level electronic viewfinder with dioptric correction; a wireless remote controller; and a high-capacity lithium-ion battery that can be recharged in the camera.
5 3x zoom lens; 12 EOS System-based picture-taking modes; a wide exposure sensitivity range (equivalent to ISO 50-400); shutter speeds from 8 seconds to 1/1000 second; an iris diaphragm; built-in flash with five control modes; compatibility with Canon EX-series Speedlites; an optical viewfinder with dioptric correction; a wireless remote controller; and a high-capacity lithium-ion battery power that can be recharged in the camera.
Magnification of such systems approximates to the dioptric ratio of the eye piece lens to the objective lens.
In addition, its built-in light-guide flash, high-eyepoint viewfinder with built-in dioptric adjustment and exclusive Best Shot dial make operation of the camera simple and stress-free.
It is important to make the distinction between accommodation, which is due to a dioptric change with near vision and pseudo-accommodation which is due to increased depth of focus.
In addition, the Elan 7/7E includes a 7-point wide-area autofocusing system based on a Canon-developed CMOS sensor; a high-speed, 4 frames per second film advance and 1/4000 top shutter speed; 11 shooting modes; 13 Custom Functions; 35-zone evaluative metering; E-TTL flash control; built-in dioptric adjustment; improved Whisper Drive; and a dedicated depth-of-field preview button.
