Product Description

Product Description

Magnetically shielded cast magnesium SLR design / Accepts all EF lenses & EX Speedlites / IEEE-1394 FireWire interface

Amazon.com

The Canon EOS-1D brings together the best of both digital and analog worlds of photography. It features one of the largest imaging sensors in a digital SLR, offering 4.15 effective megapixels for stunning, detailed imagery. Significant advances in large-volume data processing technology, a completely new imaging engine, and advancements in mirror-speed technology learned during development of the 35mm EOS-1V all contribute to the EOS-1D's speed and responsiveness.

Optics and Resolution
The EOS-1D's newly developed 4.48-million pixel CCD sensor (4.15-million effective pixels) is a full 28.7mm by 19.1mm in size--with square pixels a full 11.5 microsn by 11.5 microns. Another benefit of the large 4.15-megapixel CCD is that the lens focal length factor is only 1.3x. This means your wide-angle lenses will behave similarly to how they do on a 35mm SLR film camera, a huge benefit to photojournalists, commercial photographers, and many other professional shooters.

The CCD imaging sensor electronically times shutter speeds, and makes possible speeds as fast as 1/16,000 of a second. The EOS-1D’s shutter-release time lag of 55 milliseconds is faster than any contemporary digital SLR. With Canon's Active Mirror Control method, blackout time between exposures is a barely perceptible 45 milliseconds, and thanks to a generous buffer memory, the EOS-1D can fire up to 21 consecutive frames (at up to 8 fps) in its full-resolution mode,

The EOS-1D can record both a RAW image, for optimum image quality and archiving purposes, and a separate full-resolution JPEG file which provides quick access and small files sizes simultaneously.

Body
Professional photographers need tools they can depend on in any conditions. The EOS-1D’s body is built of cast magnesium alloy, combining strength, rigidity, and effective magnetic shielding of the electronic components.

The EOS-1D is the most extensively protected camera in its class. Seventy-two points on the camera body are specifically gasketed and sealed to protect it even in the harshest conditions, and the NP-E3 battery pack is gasketed as well to protect the battery compartment.

Storage and Transfer
Images are stored on standard Type I or II CompactFlash cards, and it is compatible with Microdrives for storage of up to 1 gigabyte (GB). Transfer images to your Mac or Windows PC via high-speed FireWire (IEEE 1394) connection--up to 400 mbps.

More Features

  • 100 percent viewfinder coverage meeting professional needs with adjustable diopter and eyepiece shutter
  • 45-point Area AF for compositional freedom, and 21-zone metering
  • 10 white balance modes and WB bracketing functions, including setting Kelvin values
  • ISO-speed settings from 200 to 1,600 in 1/3-steps, and Canon's exclusive ISO-speed bracketing
  • Voice narration recording with built-in microphone--maximum of 30 seconds
  • 21 custom functions and 25 personal functions, which can be stored into function groups

Power, Size, and Contents
The camera is powered by a rechargeable NiMH battery pack (included). It measures 6.1 by 6.2 by 3.1 inches and weighs 2.8 pounds. This package includes the EOS-1D digital camera body (no lens), battery pack and battery charger, DC coupler kit, IEEE 1394 (FireWire) cable, neck strap, hand strap, and EOS Digital Solutions software, Adobe Photoshop 5.0 LE Disk, and USB drivers for Windows and Mac.

Customer Reviews

It is a very good piece of hardware.
D. Tyranowski
Put a fast lens on it and I seriously doubt any of today's camera will focus any faster.
G. Mann
Yes the MP is low, however the image quality is superb.

I know it has only 4 MP sensor, but pro autofocus, 8.3 FPS, pro body with weather sealing, built in hand grip. Put a fast lens on it and I seriously doubt any of today's camera will focus any faster. Just a touch on the shutter button and 45 points come into action and in AI SERVO MODE it is impossible to loose your subject. A regular camera you just fun with, but this one you have fun but times 5.

I just picked one up for $600 and all I can think is, what was I doing messing around with the rebel series for so long. Yes the MP is low, however the image quality is superb. This camera surpasses any rebel out there and still out performs other high end models in many ways. If you are starting to get serious about photography, do your homework and you will realize that there is much more to photography than MP. Let's face it, if you are looking at anything less than a 5D, then you probably aren't making any real money on your photos. And if you don't plan on printing any posters, take a chance on a camera which can show you what performance is really about. Otherwise, keep taking your generic pictures and enjoy your 100 gigs of useless photos filling up your hard drive. If you are looking for some sample images taken with the 1D, check out the Canon EOS 1D group on Flickr.

Verified Purchase
I own an EOS 50D and I bought the EOS-1D as a backup for it. While the 50D has many features not incorporated into the 1D, its solid body and ruggedness make it purfect as a backup. The newer EF-S lenses will not work with the 1D, however, the rest do. It's speed alone make it a great for a backup! Great Camera!

Any one that would give this camera a two, obviously has never had one, I have a canon G9 and no way that this very great point and shoot begins to compare with my 1D, well maybe in ease of carrying. Is it worth $1,500 probably not, but then I paid $450 for my G9. This is one awesome camera and you need to experience it to know how great it is. I have taken photos at 1600 ISO that were very usable with this old technology.

I picked up an EOS-1D in excellent minus condition for $300 with a fresh battery (awesome deal).

This camera is a Cult Classic. It has features that no other camera can beat, even today (2013).

First of all, it has only 4 MP spread across an APS-H sensor. Which means that this camera has clean low noise from ISO 200-1600. It also focuses very quickly and shoots at 8 frames per second in raw (tiff) format.

I have a Canon 20D and after using this baby for a couple of hours there is no way I can go back. I'm too spoiled. The professional controls, the extra large, bright viewfinder...this is like driving a Rolls Royce and my 20D is a Camry.

The quality of the images off this camera can only be described as "special". Maybe it's the low pixel ratio to the size the sensor, I don't know. As I was learning the camera and messing around in my kitchen I took two awesome portraits that just blew people's minds when I posted them on Facebook. The depth, color rendition and three dimensionality of the images are just classic.

Okay a few pet peeves. This camera is heavy. After a few days I developed the strength to heave it around. The battery life is surprisingly good when you think it can take 300-500 photos off the equivalent power of one AA battery. However the batteries are huge and the charger is an absolute tank.

If your looking for a "pro" level camera and aren't interested in being caught up in "megapixel madness" then this is the camera for you. The only camera that could replace this one would be a Canon pro level full frame, but right now they are WAAY too expensive. Maybe in five years time I can get a full frame used for $300. On the other hand, I just might shoot with this cam for the rest of my life :)

Disclaimer: I did not buy mine through Amazon.

I was in high school when I first saw this camera, but I could not afford it back then. Fast forward to now and I was able to purchase one secondhand, with the charger and battery, for $230. I put on a 40mm lens and started taking pictures with it. Coming from a 20D (which I still use), the controls of this camera felt a bit 'awkward' but besides that I love the fast, accurate AF and the images it produces. I'll post some pictures when I get the chance to, but I swear the noise reminds me of film grain.

Would I recommend this camera to anyone? Absolutely not! I'd only recommend it to individuals who are aware of its limitations and know how to take picture besides using the "auto" mode.

Verified Purchase
Purchased this used for $450 and am VERY impressed with it. It only has 4.2MP which is fine because if I ever need images above 2464 x 1648 I can just use interpolation. This is a very solid body, I love the 8fps, and for a 10 year old camera this still blows away the Canon rebel series. I also own a T2i which is great for the video, high iso, & high MP but the build quality of the 1D is far superior as well as the fps, & af points.
I highly recommend this, or if you have some extra cash then get the mark ii
