35mm Focal-Plane Shutter SLR Camera
|Original Price||270,000 yen|
The EOS-1V, successor to the EOS-1N, is a premier-class professional SLR featuring the latest state-of-the-art technology.
Premier AF Performance: The 45-point area AF gives predictive AI servo AF at about 9 fps (with the PB-E2 attached) for outstanding subject tracking and blazingly fast focusing, all automatically.
High-speed continuous shooting: 10 fps continuously (with the PB-E2 attached).
In response to the severe demands of professional photographers, already excellent reliability has been improved even further. Water and dust resistance is even better than the EOS-1N and EOS-3. Leading-edge "thixo-molding" metal injection molding technology has led to strong, rigid magnesium alloy outer covers that easily passed 150,000 operations test standards. While carrying over the standard specifications of the EOS-1: the advanced exposure metering system of the EOS-3 has been incorporated in this professional camera, along with the 1/8000 sec. high speed shutter that syncs with flash at 1/250 second.
The viewfinder specifications are carried over from the EOS-1N, and EOS-1N accessories are compatible.
Shooting data recording system: Shooting data for 100 rolls of 36 exp. film (using the standard settings) is stored in memory, and can be read and edited on a computer using the ES-E1 software. Customizing functions abound: 20 custom functions, and 31 personal functions.
Accessories marketed simultaneously with the EOS-1V include the EOS Link Software (ES-E1); and two items expanding macro system capabilities: the EF 100mm f/2.8 USM MACRO lens and the Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX.
