An in-depth look at Canon's amazing 11 megapixel SLR from a pro photographer...
Our good friend Rob Galbraith has posted an article on his website, Rob Galbraith Online, looking at Canon's recently-announced EOS-1Ds digital camera, a sibling to the sports and photojournalism-oriented EOS-1D. The EOS-1Ds is more suited to portrait, wedding, event and studio photographers who can trade off a little speed for maximum resolution.
Rob comments: "Summing up EOS-1Ds image quality is difficult. On the one hand, the camera delivers crisp, detailed photos which are effectively noise-free at ISO 100, and surprisingly clean at ISO 1250. On the other hand, certain 16-35mm photos contain heaps of chromatic aberration, while portrait colour can be too vivid and contrasty. This article explores both ends of EOS-1Ds image quality, based on several weeks of real world testing of an early preproduction unit."
