Canon 1V overview

  • 1Description

Canon's final no-compromise 35mm flagship SLR, the magnesium alloy Canon EOS-1V is a benchmark in professional 35mm SLR camera history.  It has a lightning-fast autofocus system with 45 AF points that can be customized to the needs of the user.  Seven super-sensitive cross sensors detect vertical as well as horizontal lines of subjects, and the central sensor works even with working apertures as low as f/8, so that you'll retain autofocus function using f/4 lenses with 2X teleconverters.  The EOS-1V is made in Japan to the highest possible manufacturing standards, and its shutter is specified to withstand 150,000 cycles (>4000 36-exposure rolls of film).

The EOS-1V's control layout shares the lineage of the original EOS-1, and users of the 1, 1N, & 3 will find the operation intuitive.  The EOS-1V's sealing is the best in Canon's 35mm SLR history; together with "L" telephoto lenses, one can shoot in the worst of conditions.  The 100% accurate glass pentaprism viewfinder is as bright and contrasty as any autofocus camera, and custom functions allow personalizaton of autofocus, metering, operating systems, etc.  You can also link the EOS-1V to a PC for transfer of data and remote control operation.
