Pro photographer offers opinions on Canon's upcoming Pro EOS digital SLR...
Our good friend Rob Galbraith has posted two new articles on his website, Rob Galbraith Online, looking at Canon's recently-announced EOS-1D digital camera, its first completely in-house design targetted at professional photographers.
In his first article, Rob examines the camera itself, concluding:
"An EOS-1V digital camera with software designed for the news and sports photographer: that's the EOS-1D in a nutshell. The EOS-1D should be the camera that Canon devotees have been clamoring for since Nikon stormed the scene with the D1 two years ago. Canon hasn't quite hit a home run - the shallowness of its 14 frame burst depth above ISO 800 is going to be a big problem for some - but it appears to have covered almost all the other bases well. If the image quality is sound, this should be the digital SLR Canon shooters have been waiting for, and Nikon will finally have some strong competition from its long-time rival in the pro segment."In a second item, Rob examines the software Canon will be including with the EOS-1D, with plenty of insights and comparisons to offerings from rivals...
When you've read Rob's items, be sure to look at our gallery of EOS-1D sample images, posted early on Sunday morning...
