Additional Information:
The Canon EOS 1V comes equipped with a Quick Control Dial. Thanks to the cameras built-in memory it can save shooting data of the last 100 rolls of film. The data can be read out using EOS Link Software ES-E1, which was available for PC and also used to set custom functions.
As a gimmick an NPC Proback by Forscher was available for this model, allowing the use of polaroids.
The camera received the EISA Professional Camera of the Year Award 2000-2001 and the TIPA SLR Award 2000.
EOS Link Software ES-E1 for EOS 1V in v1.0 runs on Win9x only, later versions also on Win2k and Mac OS 8.6 - 9.04, the update for Windows v1.3 also runs on Windows XP (SP2 reportedly, SP1 recommended by Canon JP). Vista will not work. You need a genuine install disc in your drive to install the downloadable updates. The Updates are still available from Canon Australia and Canon Japan. The cable required to connect the camera to a computer was included with the software. It had a USB plug on one side, a N3 remote plug on the other side. A detailed review can be found at Luminous Landscape.
