Based on the EOS concept of delivering automated performance to meet the userâs needs, the Canon EOS-1 camera featured cutting-edge technologies, class-leading levels of performance, high durability, robustness and reliability. Canon has consistently launched SLR cameras designed to satisfy the demands of professionals in step with the changing times. First, in 1994, as a growing number of professional photographers were making use of the autofocusing capabilities offered by EOS cameras and EF lenses, Canon launched the EOS-1N camera which featured an increased number of focusing points and enhanced predictive focusing capabilities when tracking moving subjects. Then, in 2000, the Company introduced the EOS-1V camera, equipped with 45-point high-density area AF, which contributed to accurate and precise high-speed predictive AF up to nine frames-per-second.
Upon entering the digital era, in 2001 Canon launched its first flagship-model, professional digital SLR camera the EOS-1D, followed in 2002 by the EOS-1Ds camera, equipped with a full-frame 35mm sensor. Since then, the Company has reinforced its product lineup through efforts targeting enhanced image quality, continuous shooting performance and rugged reliability even when shooting in adverse weather conditions such as rain or snow.
