I have had my eye in the EOS-1V lately and I wanted to know what people here think since I trust the group judgement.

If you have used one what did you think about the software that tracks the film roll and the photo info?

Thank you fur your time.

I shoot a 1v and I love the images I get out of it. Beautiful machine. Not sure of the software though, sorry I can't help you there (or if I'm not understanding). Love the camera though. I recommend you pick it up.

It will save exposure info and there is a way to change lots of "personal functions" that requre pc software.

Hmm do you have any film scans posted online?

I don't remember using any of the functions, but I think the camera can put some info the film.

I sold the camera after going digital, fabulous camera, I am done with film.

I have one that I just sent to be repaired due to the auto focus not working while the shutter is halfway pressed down. Other than those issues I love having it especially as a film camera. It is simple to use compared to most of my digital cameras and will easily bracket exposure +- a few stops and is built like a tank. I paid around 400 for mine with the battery grip which is on the low side of what I have seen them go for.

Just a fair warning if you do buy used make sure the charger is included especially for those that have the battery grip the chargers alone sell for 150 or so.

I am not sure if I can gather up the money to buy one of these actually, as some of my funding just fell though. What is the consensus for film cameras as far as how much impact the camera body makes? Are there lower tier products that would do just as well as this camera? I know there is no "sensor" to factor in but how much differences would the camera body make here? Maybe I could get a lower level one. I have a Rebel G film camera right now, but it only has 3 autofocus points and very limited metering options.

I have an EOS-3 and love it. Once properly calibrated for lenses, the "eye control" focus is really cool. You just need to get the hang of it.

Film bodies are like digital. The more expensive ones have more features.


5D, XTi, 17-40mm f/4L, 70-210mm f/4, 50mm f/1.2L, 85mm f/1.8, 3 - 580EX II, Alien Bees, smoke, mirrors, etc...

the features sure, but in your opinion,like for stuff like metering, does that help you get a better photograph? I'll take a look at the EOS-3 too.... the Rebel Gii I use now has rather limited metering for example.

Well metering improves with the bodies as well, but none of that has any impact on image quality when you set your exposure the same. If you reley on camera meter, then yes, the 1V will meter better than a Rebel. (and give you more metering options to chose from)

If you like the 1V features, but don't like the price find a used EOS3
