Throwback Thursday: Returning to the Canon EOS-1D

Throwback Thursday: Returning to the Canon EOS-1D

By Canon Rumors | September 21, 2017 | Canon DSLR News

Kieran Elson has written what we think is a fun piece about returning to the EOS-1D. Canon’s 4.2mp CCD equipped professional DSLR from 2001.

The EOS-1D is one camera I am actively looking to add to my collection, as it was quite a revolutionary leap for digital photography.

Throwback Thursday won’t become a weekly thing here, the timing just worked out this week.

Canon EOS-1D Specifications:

  • 4.2 million pixel Panasonic CCD sensor
  • 8 fps
  • 45 autofocus points
  • Large bright viewfinder
  • Built for punishment
  • Vertical Grip

Kieran writes:

The Canon EOS 1D was released in 2001 as Canon’s new flagship digital camera, similar in many ways from the EOS-1V professional film camera, it was an obvious step into the digital era.

Fast forward to 2017 and photography has entered a whole new world, with 50 million pixel sensors available and 24mp as an expected standard.

Review: Architectural Photography with the Sigma 12-24mm f/4 Art

Review: Architectural Photography with the Sigma 12-24mm f/4 Art

By Canon Rumors | September 21, 2017 | Third Party Lenses

Keith over at Northlight Images has completed an extensive review of the Sigma 12-24mm f/4 Art series lens. There are more than 60 high resolution samples available to look at in the review.

Keith came away impressed, and may even prefer to invest in the Sigma 12-24mm f/4 Art over  the much more expensive Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L.

Shooting this wide can be a challenge, but the payoffs can be well worth the learning curve.

If you do use third party batteries, please let us and others know what brands have worked for you on the forum or via Twitter.
