Canon EOS-1Ds Images Quality, Specification Review

The EOS-1Ds is The Canon eos latest expert SLR. Depending on the EOS-1D body system the EOS-1Ds increases quality to 11 mega pixels, uses a CMOS indicator (just like the EOS-D30 and D60) and is the first Canon electronic SLR with a indicator which catches a full 35 mm structure.

Last year Canon presented the EOS-1D, it was the first expert electronic SLR since the EOS-D2000 which was a cooperation with Kodak. The EOS-1D has a 4 mega-pixel indicator and can catch at an amazing 8 supports per second, clearly directed at the sports professional photographer. The EOS-1Ds includes almost every other type of digital photography, from scenery to image, photo literature to marriages. The ability to use 35 mm contacts at their designed central length (field of view) put together with the high pixel depend will be strong points for those movie professional photographers who have hesitated on going electronic path because of these two issues. The 1Ds is capable of capturing at broader position than any other electronic SLR (at least until the actual launch of Kodak’s DCS-14n).

The EOS-1Ds human is in accordance with the EOS-1V expert movie SLR. From a size perspective the 1Ds human is almost similar to an EOS-1V with the additional powerdrive enhancer connected. The base of the camera contains the large battery package power and allows for the incorporation of a straight (portrait) hand hold and control system. Construction is fantastic, our bodies system molded from mineral magnesium metal with ecological closes around every section door, international airport, plug and key.

Canon EOS-1Ds Key Features

  • 11.4 mega-pixel CMOS indicator (primary color filter)
  • Output picture size: 4064 x 2704 or 2032 x 1352

Canon EOS-1Ds Body And Design

Just like the EOS-1V and EOS-1D the EOS-1Ds has a ‘hewn from an excellent prevent of metal’ experience about it. The whole situation is created from mineral magnesium steel and does not creak or shake in any way. When you first choose up the EOS-1Ds you first observe the bodyweight and then the ‘feel’ of you. Nearer examination reveals the rubberized grommet closes around control buttons and rubberized o-ring closes around section gates. The EOS-1Ds truly seems like an experienced device.

The EOS-1Ds has completely incorporated style with a controllable management framework which tends towards preventing random configurations changes (a must for expert photographers). Which implies that most configurations changes / routing need use of the mouse and control switch. The fast management switch rules the back of you and provides management over LCD features as well as visibility settlement and aperture choice in Guide visibility method.

Viewfinder / Autofocus

The EOS-1Ds has a very shiny obvious viewfinder which provides an enormous area of perspective (full frame!), which, if you’re used to electronic SLR’s with popped viewfinders will come as a very enjoyable shock. Movie expert photographers will experience at house with the EOS-1Ds viewfinder. The EOS-1Ds has a very identical viewfinder to the EOS-1V apart from extra position details a better dioptre modification rim and an eyepiece which projects 20 mm (0.8 in) from the back of you (helps to keep onto your nasal area away from the LCD screen).

Metering program / zones

Just like the EOS-1D/1V the 1Ds has a 21-zone evaluative metering program. This provides several metering modes: evaluative, limited, identify, center-weighted regular, AF point-linked identify and Multi-spot metering (plus display E-TTL and TTL). The plan on the remaining, above reveals how these places equal the sections of the viewfinder perspective and AF factors, in AF point-linked identify metering method one gauge area provides several AF factors.

Canon EOS-1Ds Images Quality

Picture Great quality / Particular Issues

Nothing can really get ready you for the large quality offered in the large EOS-1Ds pictures, as seems to be The canon eos viewpoint the standard improving stages are very low (default improving parameter is zero), however make a new parameter set with a little bit greater improving or implement an Unsharp cover up to pictures and details steps out of the picture.

Noise stages are also very good (as we had come can be expected from The canon eos CMOS sensor), better than the EOS-D60 at greater breathing difficulties but not quite as ‘buttery smooth’ at ISO 100 (odd because the EOS-1Ds pixel message is larger). With an sRGB shade matrix chosen shades are stunning, if a little ‘red strong’, but that can of course be modified for or prevented absolutely by using the Adobe RGB shade matrix.

Sharpening images

As described above the EOS-1Ds has a pretty smooth standard improving stage. Below you will discover a evaluation of this standard stage, a improving stage of 2 and a Unsharp cover up of the initial ‘default’ image. The first two pictures were made out of a RAW computer file using the Canon File Audience application.

Chromatic aberrations

Even using the best of The canon eos L contacts we could not get away from the periodic chromatic aberration impact, that said it does degree of particular high evaluation scenario (such as divisions against a sky background) to be obvious. Also because of the 3:2 rate of the picture these relics are more likely to show on the remaining or right sides of the structure.

Vignetting / Mild drop off

One other trend which movie photography lovers will be conscious of but up D-SLR customers have not had to fear about is vignetting / light go away at extensive apertures. The pictures below are offered to odor of the exposure of go away which now happens because of the complete 35 mm dimension indicator. Remember that this impact is not exclusive to the EOS-1Ds, it’s a well known and recorded trend in the movie globe. It is most recognizable at extensive position and highest possible aperture and will differ based on the lens.
