Canon is touting its latest professional digital camera, the EOS-1D, as "the world's fastest digital SLR camera with interchangeable lenses". Targeted at professional photographers that depend on high-speed performance, like sports photographers and photojournalists, the EOS-1D contains many of the advanced functions offered in the 35mm EOS-1V model as well as several new digital features. The four-megapixel EOS-1D features a continuous shooting speed of eight frames per second for up to 21 consecutive frames at full resolution. It delivers enhanced image quality and responsiveness through a new extra-large, high-resolution CCD sensor, with an effective pixel area of 28.7x19.1mm. From colour space selection to new driver software used for viewing and customising image processing, the EOS-1D delivers unmatched image quality control, the company claims. The Canon EOS-1D will be available in Australia from December.
