Featuring a weather-resistant, all-metal body, the Canon EOS-1v offers the fastest continuous shooting speed in its class at 10 frames per second (fps) in One Shot AF and 9 fps with AI Servo AF(1).
Giving photographers the freedom to customize their camera for their specific needs, the EOS-1v incorporates 20 built-in Custom Functions for fine-tuning of various camera settings and supports Canon's new optional EOS Link software for uploading exposure information to a PC or downloading up to 30 "Personal Functions" to the camera. Other professional features include a 100 percent viewfinder with adjustable diopter, 1/250th second flash sync, a top shutter speed of 1/8000 second, and a new sprocketless film detection system that permits any infrared film to be used without fogging the image.
The EOS-1v is also the most weather-resistant camera in the EOS line, with 72 different parts either gasketed or weatherproofed. In addition, O-ring seals surrounding the lens mount and the back cover of the camera, as well as water-resistant construction in the battery compartment, make the camera superbly reliable in severe-weather, shooting conditions..
The EOS-1v also includes improvements to many of the performance features found in the EOS-3, such as 45-point Area AF and 21-zone Evaluative metering.
The EOS-1v offers a host of features that professional photographers demand, including variable diopter control, 100 percent viewfinder coverage, and an eye-piece shutter. Other critical features include one-touch depth of field preview, mirror lock, a PC socket for studio strobes, and a remote control socket. More importantly, the EOS-1v inherits the proven control layout of the previous EOS-1 models, thus providing a strong degree of familiarity for current EOS owners, as well as an unprecedented degree of comfort for potential switchovers from competitive systems
The EOS-1v camera is also compatible with Canon's sophisticated E-TTL flash exposure system and provides wireless remote control with optional EX-series Speedlite electronic flash units.
When you attach the optional Power Drive Booster PB-E2 and rechargeable nickel metal-hydride battery pack NP-E2 to the camera, the EOS-1v becomes the world's first production AF SLR to achieve 10 fps with a moving mirror.
The Canon 1V is commonly used for Action shots, Home, Photojournalism, Sports photography, Travel and more.The Canon 1V is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Canon 1V: Comfortable design, Fast film loading, Fingertip controls, Reliable operation and Strong construction.
