Image quality

 

Canon EOS 1D

Combination of fast drive mode and high resolution; large buffer; highly customizable; saves custom camera setups to media; improved E-TTL II flash performance.

Noise in underexposed image areas; LCD lacks sharpness when zooming in review mode; slow image review; imperfections appear when paired with lower-quality lenses; requires fast, high-capacity memory cards to store large files.

In a league by itself, the Mark II offers professional photographers extensive customization, excellent photo quality, and market-leading speed.

The Canon EOS-1D is so versatile that it makes film all but obsolete for those who need a high-performance camera system.

Canon's EOS-1D is the first professional digital SLR from Canon since the EOS-D2000 (introduced in March 1998 which was a collaborative effort with Kodak, also known as the Kodak DCS 520). Indeed, the EOS-1D is the first all Canon professional digital...

Canon EOS-1D C Review

 

Late last year, Canon announced the EOS-1D X, an interesting model that merged the company's earlier 1D and 1Ds-series model lines into a single product. As well as its fairly-impressive still imaging capabilities, the EOS-1D X courted professional...

Pricing and availability. The Canon EOS-1D C is scheduled to ship in the US market later this year. Body-only estimated retail pricing is expected to be in the region of US$15,000, fully 220% of the list pricing for the closely-related EOS-1D X model,...

Canon EOS-1D X - Almost at the Apex

 

The 1D X represents the pinnacle of Canon's DSLR camera technology, and it mostly doesn't disappoint. It succeeds not just one, but two previous high-end cameras, and ups the game with faster frame-rates, higher ISO settings and improved handling. But...

Fastest full-frame camera at 12 fps ; Vertical handling as good as horizontal ; Dual CF memory card slots ; Auto-focus fast and accurate in good light ; Excellent image quality with little noise

Auto-focus inconsistent in low-light

The 1D X represents the pinnacle of Canon's DSLR camera technology, and it mostly doesn't disappoint. The body is rock-solid and the controls have been further expanded to work better in both the vertical and horizontal grips. It's also great that the...

Canon 1D X Review

 

AF is about as fast, however the 1D X adds color and motion to its AF-area tracking ability, which is a huge help in every live-action shooting situation, be it snapping my kids or shooting the Olympics.
