The EOS-1V was designed with the strongest available body materials for both functional attractiveness and high-level rigidity. The magnesium alloy used for the EOS-1V is lightweight, yet possesses exceptional strength. This new material is hard to machine and was initially thought to be unsuitable for molding the delicate curved surfaces of the EOS body. Canon solved this problem with the application of ''thixo-molding'', an advanced injection molding technology.

The EOS-1V was built to deliver top performance regardless of the shooting environment. Professional cameras must be impervious to sharp changes in temperature; they must also be resistant to water, sand and dust. In other words, the professional camera must work smoothly under a wide range of conditions. The EOS-1V has been developed and manufactured to reflect feedback from professional photographers who work in severe environments, as well as Canon's own expertise in this area. Following a reassessment of the severity of conditions that may apply in some shooting situations, Canon has succeeded in raising the level of water and dust resistance. The 72 major body seams and moving parts, such as the shutter button, selector buttons and Main/Quick Control Dials, are carefully sealed with silicone rubber, and the edges of the back cover are thoroughly finished. While the insides of function buttons, found on the upper left of the body, are protected from dust and water by a silicone rubber boot.The satisfyingly solid feel and sound of the back cover being closed will tell you that the EOS-1V stands up to the elements like no other camera.

The EOS-1V's electronically controlled rotary magnet shutter has been designed to eliminate the possibility of operational trouble. This shutter unit ensures constant operation that remains as accurate as its original performance even after long use and under severe shooting conditions. In this shutter system, the first and second shutter curtains are controlled by a non-contact rotary magnet, which does not suffer sticking problems due to dust accumulation. The shutter blades are made of carbon fiber and super-duralumin, for high reliability in all shooting conditions over extended use. This has been confirmed by in-house testing in which the unit recorded in excess of 150,000 shutter-cycles. The unit performs high-speed shutter operation with exceptional accuracy at a maximum shutter speed of 1/8,000 second and a maximum flash sync speed of 1/250 second.

What is more, battery power consumption is minimized because the unit requires no power to hold the second shutter curtain open during bulb exposure. Accordingly, it realizes up to 1,000 hours of operation with the 2CR5 battery at room temperature.

Comments about Canon EOS-1V 35mm SLR Camera (Body Only):

I've owned the "V" since November 2005 and I can't imagine anything better. I took it on a transatlantic voyage on a freighter last year and took about 20 rolls in all conditions for an article on freighter travel, and the V was a champ. The most dramatic was probably my shot of our pilot climbing a rope ladder at 2.00 AM. I pushed my Provia 400 once and shot it in available light (a spotlight rigged at our rail) and though blurred from ours and the pilot launch's motion, the shot was more dramtic for it.

I'd used the 7NE before getting the V, and it's a great camera for what it does, but I don't think anything can touch the "V." For me, the points that sold me on it over the "3" were the 100% viewfinder, infrared compatiblity and capability to record shooting data. I don't know if the optional software for the last item is still available -- if not it's a shame because I do make use of it.

As to digital -- Simply put, as of now (much emphasis on those last 3 words) there's nothing I know of that give you a full sized sensor and 10 frames per second, and the pictures are pretty great too -- for anywhere near the price. When there is, I'll consider it, but for now, the "V" is great, and even if I got a digital I would still keep the "V" and my mint condition 1N, which serves as my second body.

No disrespect to the Nikon folks out there, but I'm a Canon guy and I just love the "V" and always will.
