Chronology of cameras Canon 

Traduction de Manuel M

The successor of Canon new-F1 was introduced in France at the time of the Grand Prix of Formula 1 on the circuit Paul Ricard in July 1989. He positioned in direct competitor of Nikon F4. It was at this time the two only genuine professional  camera bodies (of 24 X 36), most manufacturers seeming to have to throw sponge to provide a market where a camera is more expensive than it does not yield

Eos-1 has a very elaborate ergonomics. The adjustments are recalled on a big screen to liquid crystals, like in the viewfinder. Two serrated rollers, small close to the button of shutter release and a large dorsal allow the adjustments.

The case is motorized of origin with 3 images /second. The addition of a booster pushes this speed with 5.5 images /second. What is remarkable, it is that up to 4.5 i /s, the autofocus system follows correctly. At the time of its release, the autofocus system of Eos 1 is fastest. Admittedly, USM lens (Ultrasonic) are very innovating, but sensor CT-SIR Basis is the big improvement of this camera. It consists of two series of 29 elements in the vertical and two series of 47 éléments in the horizontal The Basis sensors are faster than sensors CCD. They are also more sensitive.

The power is provided by a 6 volts Lithium battery. It is placed in the handle. The booster requires removing this battery. Itself contains eight AA batteries.

There are four modes of exposure measure: Spots selective, balanced integration centered and multi-zone evaluative. The modes of exhibition are: Program, Priorité speed, Priorité aperture, semi-automatic, mode DEPTH.
