Canon EOS 1D User Guide

Before to go to the digital camera Canon EOS 1D user guide, I would like to inform you that we found different information about the release date of this Canon EOS 1D. It was launched in November 2001 based on wikipedia but another source said that this model was introduced in March 1998.

Back to Topic 🙂

We know that the Canon EOS 1D digital camera is a high-performance, single-lens reflex AF camera with a large, ultra-fine, 4.15-megapixel CCD sensor and high-precision Area AF. The camera is compatible with all Canon EF lenses. It has many features for all types of photography, from fully automatic snapshooting to professional-level, creative work.

It uses CompactFlash cards (CF Type I and II) as the recording medium. Be sure to read these Canon EOS 1D User guide / user Instructions to familiarize yourself with the features and proper operation of this camera. wait a moment please… I’m going to inform you about the EOS-1D specification and features first.
