About this item

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 the PB-E2, powered by the Ni-MH Pack NP-E2, is attached to the EOS-1V, it performs high-speed continuous shooting of 10 fps in the One-Shot AF mode and 9 fps in the AI Servo AF mode.

The booster is fitted with various controls, including a shutter button, AE lock button, focusing point selection button, and FE lock/multi-spot metering button/Main Dial and all button function on/off switch. The PB-E2 provides equal operating ease in the vertical or horizontal position.
