The EOS 1V is the most advanced film camera Canon has ever produced. Canon's ultimate 35mm SLR, the EOS 1V was born out of an ongoing dedication to producing the most excellent photography products imaginable with engineering experience acquired over decades of tireless work perfecting necessary technology. The EOS 1V is a very special camera, a masterpiece in every sense of the word.

Designed to be the heart of a comprehensive professional system, the EOS-1V was designed to be useable with Canon's EOS Link software, of courdse it's also compatible with Canon's extensive line of autofocus lenses and Speedlites. The EOS-1V's rubber-covered magnesium alloy body, combined with a hybrid chassis, 72 individual gaskets for proven moisture and dust resistance, a shutter tested to 150,000 cycles and familiar EOS-1 control layout have made this flagship 35mm SLR perfect for any pro and it's a must have milestone for Canon collectors.
