1v taking Infrared film is definitely a plus, but I don't think I can justify *another* $500 on a toy (seeing as on monday i'm signing up for $500,000 of debt; ie buying a house). So it'll probably just have to be a little 1100D-film-equivalent (seeing as the glass and film are the important bits).


The 1V is not the only Canon EOS camera that can handle infrared film.  I've known for some time that my EOS 10S is infrared compatible, although I've never tried it.  The key for infrared seems to be if the body uses a mechanical sprocket counter.  This website has a nice list of models and their counter types:

http://www.markerink.org/WJM/HTML/eos&ir.htm

Here's another site with plenty to say about EOS cameras and infrared:

http://photonotes.org/articles/eos-ir/

So it should be possible to buy an infrared-compatible EOS body for a lot less money than the 1V.  The EOS 10S is recommended but it is getting long in the tooth and it may be hard to get a good one - although mine is 20 years old and still works great; I've had the shutter replaced once but that is the only repair it has required.  In any case, most of these old models are so cheap now that they can almost be considered disposable.  Buy a couple and run some cheap print film through to make sure they work before loading the expensive IR stuff.

Well everyone!  Great news!  I have a guy in California who it looks like I'm buying from.  1V-HS. $550.00 With box and charger  :D :D :D

So excited!  I'll post in another thread some of the photos I take with it.  We are going to Lisbon, Portugal in July so I'll be able to get some nice shots there I am sure.

I can't thank you guys enough!

There is one on Craigslist in LA right now for $349.

With winder, I see people asking $550-$600, but I expect they have to take less.

I saw that one, but it's missing the eye piece and has
Some nasty scratches where the logo is at on the front.

Just didn't want to compromise reliability being over 15 states away. :)

I think I'm going to go for an EOS 3 instead.  I will only be shooting indoor portraits, and don't need the fast AF and weatherbuild extras.  Shutter durability for the 3 is 100K and the 1V is 200K I believe, but I suppose I won't be taking 100K shots with this :)

There is one for sale locally that sounds nice, i'd be happy to pay for it and  pick it up for you if you work out a deal with the seller.  You can then pay me the cost plus shipping.

I've bid on one on ebay already :( but it's mint condition as well.  If I don't win, I will gladly take you up on your offer.  I guess I should have posted this before I bid.  By the way, THANK YOU.

I believe that EOS 3 and EOS 1 have the same AF system..? Correct me if I'm wrong.

You're wrong :P
They've both got 45pt af, f/8 middle point, same as the 1D & 1Ds.
But the EOS 3 is 'faster' when you take into account moving the selected point by using twiddlysticks and dials on the 1 compared to eye-control on the 3.
Too much gear, too little space.

I see :P
Eye control was one of the reasons I got mine. I never calibrated it perfectly though.. Daaaaaamn

Properly set up eye-control was excellent.  I know some folk didn't rate it at all, but thankfully canon put in an 'off' setting.

It's a feature I would like to see back (like old school DEP mode and on body IR emitter)

I bought a cheap 7E last week  justfor the lenses.  I played with the eye control, it was difficult to get all the points accurately calibrated, but when I did, it worked well.  Then, I put on my glasses ... nothing.  I guess working with glasses is too much to hope for.

The AF on the spec sheets are slated to be faster on the 1V, that's the only difference.  IQ is the same.
