'tis a good camera? im getting a steal on one. whats ur thought on it?
You're probably better off getting an EOS 3 or an EOS 1V if you're getting a pro body. The EOS 1 is pretty basic to say the least, but its still a pretty good camera. It was sold in 1989.
sry. 1n i meant
Its a workhorse. It doesn't have the same focusing system as some of the newer cams, but it has everything else. Great camera, I use it quite a bit. Great feel to it. A little differnt layout than the newer cams, more like the Eos 1Ds and 1D have.
Very fast, easy to shoot a whole roll in under 4 seconds.
compare the 7e to the 1n. i got outbid on one 1n, and im in a 7e auction. which is the better buy for the ameteur photographer? i used a ae-1 yesterday at roberts. they had it used and in for repair. 'tis pretty fine.
the 1N or just 1 is heavier and larger, but shoots at 8 frames a second instead of 2.5. it has a lesser autofocus system, but more advanced metering system. No internal flash, but weather sealed. Has the option with eh battery pack of using NiCD batteries or AA's, the Elans use CR2 or need a battery pack to use AA's.
the elan is probably a little more user friendly in its layout. but the 1 is a incredible camera if you want to keep it as you advance and will shoot much faster
