Canon Inc. will market a professional-use AF digital single-lens camera, the “Canon EOS-1D,” with 4.15 million pixels in mid-December for $6500 USD.
The company is scheduled to produce 3,000 units a month.
This camera is developed for professional users for media, broadcasting and studio use. It has a newly developed 28.7mm by 19.1mm effective imaging area and a 4.15-million-pixel charge-coupled device image sensor.
Its image engine is capable of high-speed image processing and serial shooting of a maximum of eight frames per second (serial shooting of about 21 frames).
The model will succeed those of Canon’s highest-end silver halide camera, the “EOS-1V.” The lens mount is the EF, as used in the EOS series.
