The first review was for a different camerea! The Canon 1V is the top of the range SLR film camera, and is absolutely all you could want as a proffessional or demanding amateur - it's as easy to use for a biginner as most of the AOS family, but incorperated some of the most stunning focusing, aperture and motor technology. 45 point focusing, incredible speed, and accuracy of autofocusing are top user features. The specs and builare beyond any competition. strong, powerful, flexible. Take a look at any sports events and you'll see they have a 1V.
This is a very nice SLR and is one of the older cameras from Canon that have the EOS name, I have had mine about 9 years, but it still does most of the things that the current models can. The camera itself can be set to full automatic, fully manual or any combination in-between for exposure, F-stop or focusing. The camera also has a number of programs for portrait, landscapes, close-ups, action shots and one to automatically set-up the depth of field. The camera has a built-in fill-in flash for close-up shots, so if you are photographing a party you don’t need to have a full-size flashgun on the camera. I am no David Bailey, but I have produced a number of reasonable shots from this camera as if you see something interesting you can just snap it, but if you want to take your time and compose the shot on fully manual it will do that too. You can pick-up the body for about £100 second-hand and the lenses, new, start at about £100 for a 28-80 Sigma auto focus lens and about £140 for a comparable Canon lens. I use the Sigma lenses as although the Canon ones are better the difference for your average photographer is not worth the extra money. I would highly recommend that if you are interested in a Canon EOS camera check out one of the specialist camera stores and they might have this in their second hand stock.
