The big story with the Canon EOS 1D Mark III is that it’s a better, more universally appealing professional camera for more types of professional photographers. I think a lot of intermediate photographers may want to make the jump as well, given its more friendly interface and astonishing high ISO performance. The EOS 1D Mark III has several improvements that illustrate its greater versatility: Fast performance, high resolution, and improved image quality across the board, resolution sufficient for double-truck spreads and general commercial photography. Even faster capture, processing, and write speeds, and faster AF tracking for sports shooters, super low-light capability for photojournalists (High ISO). Quoting the bare specs says a lot: 10 frames per second, 10 megapixels, 110 JPEG buffer, three inch LCD, Live View mode, dual DIGIC III processors, automatic sensor cleaning. Bottom line, the Canon 1D Mark III is by far the fastest digital SLR on the planet, and one of the very fastest SLRs ever. READ FULL REVIEW

Imaging Resource

The Canon Rebel XSi is indeed a worthy successor to the Rebel throne. A camera with the Rebel name has never carried such sophistication, nor so rich a feature-set. It has all that makes the Rebel XTi great, but with more resolution, live view, a faster frame rate, a new look, and an image-stabilized lens. It’s the image quality that makes the Rebel XSi stand out, with great performance across the ISO range. … As I said of the XTi, the Canon Rebel XSi is an excellent, take-anywhere, all-purpose digital SLR camera that’s great as a second camera for pros, or as a primary camera for anyone else. It will more than serve, it will make its owner very happy. READ FULL REVIEW

Steve’s Digicams

The Mark II N is essentially Canon’s mid-life upgrade to its most popular pro dSLR, the EOS 1D Mark II. Although nearly identical in many ways to its predecessor, the Mark II incorporates a number of refinements in performance, usability and image processing. The bottom line is always image quality, and the Mark II N does not disappoint. Most pro’s will opt to shoot in RAW mode, using software tools to adjust for the desired degree of sharpness, saturation and contrast. But the Mark II also produces high-quality finished JPEG images courtesy of its Picture Styles. While image noise is noticeable at sensitivities over ISO 800, ISO 1600 and 3200 produce quite usable images. With its 8-megapixel imager, accurate autofocus system, precise metering system and robust performance, the Canon EOS-1D Mark II N is photographic tool that is unrivaled in the industry at the time of this test (October 2005).

Digital Photography

The EOS-1D Mark II is obviously Canon’s answer to Nikon’s fast shooting D2H, it does appear however as though Canon is raising the bar with resolution. … Image quality wise there are no complaints with the EOS-1D Mark II, it’s certainly no point-and-shoot camera and requires a certain amount of experimentation and learning before reaching your idea of the perfect image. That’s also the camera’s advantage, taking a hands-off approach to image development means that the photographer gets to decide just how the final image will look. This is the ultimate digital SLR, it offers an amazing level of build quality and environmental sealing, superb eight megapixels of resolution, low noise at almost any sensitivity, over eight frames per second (with a forty frame buffer) and near instant performance.

Digital Photography Review

The EOS-1D is a remarkably important and prestigious camera for Canon. Not only can it deliver beautiful images with great resolution … sharpness and balanced color but it does so from what could be the most robust and best built 35mm SLR bodies ever. The eight frames per second shooting speed is truly unbelievable and in operation the 1D never fails or hesitates. Add to all of this the fact that the camera has the most flexible set of custom and personal functions of any D-SLR … My major concern with the 1D is high ISO banding, while this isn’t apparent in well-exposed shots with most of their detail at the higher end of the grayscale it does become visible especially in darker backgrounds or underexposed shots. … if you’re the type of photographer who will find themselves consistently shooting at high ISO’s (ISO 800 or above) then you really need to go back, check our high ISO samples and decide if you can live with the banding.

Digital Photography Review

Despite the significant jump in resolution from the EOS-1Ds (11 mp) to the EOS-1Ds Mark II (16.7 mp) the camera maintains an impressive four frames per second shooting rate and a buffer large enough for 32 JPEG or 11 RAW images. The EOS-1Ds Mark II’s internal bus throughput of approximately 67 megapixel/sec is virtually identical to the eight megapixel EOS-1D Mark II. The EOS-1Ds Mark II delivers a level of detail unmatched by any other current digital SLR (excluding the more ‘exotic’ medium format backs). … The EOS-1Ds Mark II is a very unforgiving camera when it comes to lenses. That ultra high resolution and full size 35 mm sensor mean that not only does the camera use all of the glass in a lens but it can reproduce it in minute detail, warts and all. … In my opinion both the EOS-1Ds Mark II and D2X represent the ultimate in current digital SLR technology. The EOS-1Ds Mark II’s problem however is its big price tag. READ FULL REVIEW

Digital Photography Review

For me the D60 outperformed many of my expectations, I didn’t expect resolution to be as good as it is and I didn’t expect Canon to be able to keep noise levels down in the way they have. In almost every respect the D60 has performed flawlessly. There are the diagonal jaggies and ‘strange dots’ but these occur very infrequently in every day shots and even then they are hardly visible. Little touches like the reduced shutter release LAG, illuminated AF points, illuminated top status LCD, in-camera parameter programming are all welcome improvements and go to show that Canon are well aware of, and act upon user requests. One area I think a lot of people expected to be improved is auto focus, and this may be the D60’s only achilles heel. READ FULL REVIEW

Steve’s Digicams

The D30 is a highly durable camera constructed from polycarbonate material on the outside with a steel inner frame. It is more compact and a good deal lighter than the D1 but its burst rate is only 3fps up to a maximum of 8 frames. The D30 offers more metering options and its continuous drive mode can be used in more than just the sports mode. The D30’s battery life is better (and simpler) thanks to its one high-capacity lithium pack. Besides the smaller size and lighter weight, the D30 is making waves because it is the first high-performance SLR to use a CMOS image sensor rather than a CCD. The ISO sensitivity is variable from 100 up to 1600 and as you can imagine the images get rather grainy looking at 800 or 1600. So far the D30 has fully lived up to my expectations. READ FULL REVIEW

Digital Photography Review

The EOS-1Ds is Canon’s newest professional SLR. Based on the EOS-1D body the EOS-1Ds raises resolution to 11 megapixels, uses a CMOS sensor and is the first Canon digital SLR with a sensor which captures a full 35 mm frame. The EOS-1D has a 4 megapixel sensor and can capture at an amazing 8 frames per second, clearly targeted at the sports photographer. … The 1Ds is capable of shooting at wider angle than any other digital SLR. From a size point of view the 1Ds body is almost identical to an EOS-1V with the additional powerdrive booster attached. … Build quality is superb, the entire body molded from magnesium alloy with environmental seals around every compartment door, terminal, connector and button. The EOS-1Ds is the first released digital SLR with double figure effective pixel count and it’s also one of the first released digital SLR’s with a full 35 mm size sensor. …I love this camera, it’s addictive, you get the first hit when you pick it up, look through the viewfinder and press that shutter release, it’s one of the most effective and rewarding photographic tools you can use. … Simply the best (at the time of writing this review).

Digital Photography Review

Without a doubt the other most significant thing about the EOS-10D is the price. Other internal improvements included the new LCD monitor, the addition of Adobe RGB, a rotation sensor and crucially support for sensitivity equivalence up to ISO 3200. If you’ve ever handled a D30 or D60 and you pick up the EOS-10D you’ll be immediately struck by how much stronger this camera feels, and how much that body adds to the feeling of quality and superb value. The next surprise will be your first auto focus, which will be remarkably fast and certain. I have no concerns in stating that as things stand (at the time of writing this review) the EOS-10D is the absolute best in class, with the best image quality, lowest high sensitivity noise, superb build quality and excellent price (not to mention the huge choice of lenses).
