Amazing Continuous Shooting Performance that can Capture Ten Images in a Single Second
EOS-1v features the incredibly fastest continuous shooting speed, enabling film transport at an astounding rate of 10 fps. Now Canon gives you the power to transform one dramatic moment into a series of heart-stopping images. With the Power Drive Booster PB-E2 (driven by the NP-E2 Ni-MH Battery Pack) the EOS-1v allows unprecedented levels of visual creativity. Sensational gains in continuous shooting performance mean rapid film transport of up to 9 fps even in predictive AI Servo AF mode, which can focus track a subject approaching the camera at 50 km/h up to 8 meters away (with the EF 300 mm f/2.8L IS USM).
What's more, even when set at an intermediate film transport speed of around 3 to 5 fps, the EOS-1v demonstrates outstanding basic performance. For example, the viewfinder blackout time is remarkably shortened, the minimum distance at which a high-speed moving subject can be autofocused is reduced, and so on.
Up to 20 Custom Functions with 63 Settings can be Selected to Match your Shooting Style
The Custom Functions serve to adapt the EOS-1v to the photographer's preferences. The EOS-1v features 20 Custom Functions that enable the input of detailed selections and settings. Most Custom Function items are numbered in the same way as for the EOS-1N, for the convenience of users of that model. Arbitrary setting of Custom Functions can be performed either on the camera itself, or on a personal computer with optional EOS Link Software ES-E1 installed.
The EOS-1v's Capacity to Capture Moving Subjects with the Outstanding Tracking Performance and High Focusing Speed of 45-Point Area AF Propels Autofocusing
45-point Area AF is the result of Canon's pursuit of an AF system that allows continuous shooting ease and expanded framing freedom. The 45 focusing points are densely packed within an 8 x 15 mm zone and can be manually or automatically selected to meet the needs of the situation. When multiple points are selected, AF system capabilities are significantly extended. Born of Canon's original technology, this system has been refined for the EOS-1v to ensure the unconditional reliability, accuracy and high focusing speeds requisite for professional use.
While photographers have the freedom to frame images through the viewfinder as they choose, the lens is automatically brought into focus as soon as the active focusing points cover the subject. Like a human eye, Canon's 45-point Area AF tracks and aims true. This is typical of Canon's state-of-the-art AF technology, recognized by professional photographers everywhere.
Sophisticated Auto Exposure Control - EOS-1v Aims to Capture the Light as You See It
Canon's exclusive AIM (Advanced Integrated Multi-Point control) system integrates Area AF and all six metering modes available with the EOS-1v.
Focus on a subject within the Area AF ellipse, and the EOS-1v will meter that area for the optimum result where it's needed most. All six metering modes use the 21-zone evaluative metering sensor. Six metering modes, three flash metering modes capture your vision in all manner of lighting situations. Six exposure modes for greater creative control.
Optional EOS Link Software ES-E1 Enables Advanced Customization, and Management of Shooting Data, Through PC Connectivity.
If a PC is linked with the EOS-1v, camera functionality and the capacity for representation are markedly expanded. Simply connect the EOS-1v, via the Connecting Cable ES, to a PC with EOS Link Software ES-E1 installed.
Once connection is established you can achieve various forms of customization, function extension, data download by following messages on the monitor screen.
ES-E1 software is primarily intended for advanced Personal Function customization, so users of the EOS-1v can program it to reflect their personal preferences, shooting purposes and conditions. It also allows the management of data relating to settings used for exposed film.
