DP Review
30 October 2006
  • Conclusion: The original EOS-1D was a very important camera for Canon, their first home grown professional digital SLR built to EOS-1V standards and carrying that all important '1' label (indicating the best in their range). As such it was a camera which made its way into the hands of some of the most hard working professional photographers in the world and is still seen at the side of high profile sporting events and firing off in the face of celebrities and politicians alike.
  • Pros: Excellent resolution, not just a step change from the EOS-1D but a leap, Switch from CCD to CMOS delivers very clean images with no pattern noise, Maintains EOS-1D's amazing 8.3 fps and increases buffer to 40 frames (JPEG), Superbly well built, 'a solid block', fully environmentally sealed, totally robust, Very fast in use, ultra fast auto focus, extremely short shutter lag, although 0.8 sec startup, Separate tone / sharpness and color matrix control, all customizable...
  • Cons: Startup delay - on a camera at this level we expect no startup delay, JPEG images appear a little soft, can be improved by increasing sharpness setting, Control system can be a little confusing at first, menu operation different to other D-SLR's, Confusing provision of both EVU and DPP, DPP moiré artifacts on resolution chart - Canon are investigating this, Awkward to switch media slot, No option to write different image formats to different media (eg. RAW->CF, JPEG->...

Review of Canon 1D Mark II

Digital Home Thoughts
21 June 2004
  • Summary: As a semi-professional photographer, I have always been a fan of Canon cameras. The EOS line has a well deserved reputation for speed and quietness of operation that are highly valued for wildlife and action photography. While this camera may not be for everybody, for those wanting high resolution, very fast frame rate, and the other things this camera offers, it has no direct competitor. Read on for the full review!
  • Pros: Solid construction and weight (See text), Extremely fast;, Large frame buffer;, Accepts all Canon (except S) EF lenses;, Comprehensive user interface.
  • Cons: Price;, Weight (see text).

Digital Camera Magazine

  • Summary: Sure, £3,500 is a lot to pay for a digital SLR, but this is an awesome camera. First there’s the eight-megapixel resolution; then there’s the 8fps continuous shooting and the ability to take RAW and JPEG versions of the same shot. It’s built like a tank, fantastically responsive, and also capable of the highest-quality studio work.

  • Excerpt: Již je tomu téměř rok, co byl oznámen nástupce legendárního fotoaparátu Canon 1D, který si oblíbili zejména reportážní fotografové.

Co tedy tato profesionální DSLR zrcadlovka nabízí?

17 November 2006
  • Excerpt: Le Canon EOS 1D Mark II, est, comme son nom la nouvelle monture de L'EOS 1D. Il s'agit là encore d'un reflex numérique de grande qualité destiné en priorité aux professionnels puisqu'il est capable de produire des images de plus de 50 Mo ! Autant vous dire que la qualité d'image et le niveau de détail est excellent.
  • Pros: La finition du boitier, La plage d'Iso (de 50 à 3200), Les Annotations vocales
  • Cons: Légère attente au démarrage, Dommage que l'on ne puisse pas choisir un format d'image différent selon la carte mémoire utilisé
