Canon introduces their flagship EOS 1Ds 11MP SLR camera
Canon was proud to announce the new EOS 1Ds SLR camera during the Photokina 2002 event. This brand new topmodel features a full frame 35mm CMOS sensor with a resolution of 11.1 million effective pixels. With the introduction of this new EOS model Canon almost doubles the number of pixels, so we can talk about a serious improvement. The EOS-1Ds captures astounding detail and colour, almost doubling the resolution considered state of the art for a digital SLR camera in the world today. The EOS-1Ds has made a huge leap in resolution by means of the continuous development of the CMOS sensor. Canon's groundbreaking CMOS technologies deliver high resolution, low noise and low power consumption, allowing photography to make a quantum leap in terms of digital image quality.

The EOS-1Ds can capture images at approximately 3 frames per second for a 10-frame burst, even at the highest quality setting. It also has almost three times as many pixels as the super fast EOS-1D. With its extremely high resolution, the EOS-1Ds has been designed to meet the needs of those professional photographers who need the ultimate in digital image quality. Therefore, it is expected to appeal to professionals active in a wide range of specialties including studio, commercial, reportage, or fashion photography.

Having a full frame sensor the same size and aspect ratio as 35mm film has long been the holy grail of digital photography, but the EOS-1Ds also delivers what has so far not been possible, ultra-high resolution in the SLR format. Another long-awaited benefit of a full frame sensor is that it allows the use of wide-angle lenses without any focal length magnification, a traditional limitation of previous digital cameras. The EOS-1Ds sees the introduction of Canon's new imaging engine. This has been specially designed to achieve high image quality, excellent colour reproduction and a wide tonal range equal to, or better than, the 35mm slide film often favoured by professionals. In addition, the CMOS sensor's extremely high signal to noise ratio means that noise is minimized, even at the equivalent of ISO 1250. The EOS-1Ds incorporates outstanding professional features globally acclaimed in the multi award winning EOS-1D and EOS-1V. These include 45-point area autofocus, 21-zone metering, the familiar EOS ergonomic layout and the camera's renowned toughness & durability. In response to customer requests, an image enlargement function has been introduced. 25 sections of a selected image can be enlarged on the camera's LCD screen, thus allowing you to check for detail & sharpness.

As CMOS sensors consume less power than CCDs, battery life has been improved, so that the NP-E3 battery pack can now capture up to 600 exposures on one charge (20 C/68 F). CMOS sensors are also utilised in the award winning Canon EOS D60 prosumer model. With the high-speed FireWire standard, IEEE1394, enabling 50 Mbps throughput, high transfer speeds allow rapid plug & play downloads to a computer. CF cards can be formatted in either the FAT16 or FAT32 file system. Formatting in FAT32 is intended for high-capacity CF cards over 2GB and is selected automatically by the camera when formatting this type of card. Other leading innovations include the unique ability to dial in colour temperatures to meet specific lighting conditions. 10 White Balance (WB) modes and WB bracketing provide maximum flexibility and superb colour accuracy. ISO speed bracketing allows photographers to fix aperture and shutter speeds, yet shoot at 3 different equivalent film speeds. Such advances offer the professional advanced creative opportunities.
Entirely new software is available for the EOS-1Ds from the EOS Digital Solutions Disk and is compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems. The camera also features a CF card type I/II slot enabling the use of CF cards and IBM Microdrives. The EOS-1Ds utilizes a tough, weather resistant magnesium-alloy body and has over 70 moisture & dust resistant seals, plus a Ni-Mh battery pack with protective sealing. The shutter has been tested to an awesome 150,000 exposures. An optional accessory, the Data Verification Kit DVK-E1 consists of a dedicated IC card and card reader, together with special software for Windows 2000/XP. This allows one to check that the EOS-1Ds' image files have remained absolutely unaltered after being circulated. This may well be a landmark for digital imaging in law enforcement, copyright and many other areas. The EOS-1Ds is compatible with over 60 of Canon's EF lenses. Canon has also extended its professional photographic system by introducing the Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX for extremely versatile macro flash photography.
