The serious photographer's choice
The PowerShot Pro1 has an 8.0 megapixel CCD for high-resolution printing up to A2. Its Canon 7x L-Series zoom lens (35mm equivalent: 28–200mm, f/2.4–f/3.5) includes fluorite and UD elements to significantly reduce chromatic aberration. The PowerShot Pro1 features a new hybrid AF system, which together with the Micro Ultrasonic Motor (USM) provides quick, quiet auto-focusing to ensure you don't miss that perfect shot.
The combination of Canon's unique iSAPS technology to optimise shooting settings, high-performance DIGIC processor for fast processing, together with Image Rendering technology for accurate reproduction of colours, ensures every shot is represented faithfully.
Because every shot is different, Canon has made the PowerShot Pro1 incredibly versatile. There are 12 shooting modes – from Manual to Auto (including 2 custom settings), for greater creative control.
There's a choice of two colour space formats – standard sRGB and Adobe RGB. With a choice of 3 compression rates and 5 resolutions, plus RAW mode for maximum image data recording, you have a total of 16 modes for increased recording flexibility.
As well as total compatibility with the complete range of EX Speedlites, the PowerShot Pro1 has optional telephoto and close-up lenses for you to achieve any desired perspective.
The PowerShot Pro 1 is designed to place controls exactly where they should be. Its 2.0" vari-angle LCD is bright, easy to read and tilts to just the position you want. The tough, black body fits comfortably in your hand, while a large grip lets you hold the camera steady as you compose your shots.
Even more choice
After shooting, there's a wealth of software including ZoomBrowser EX (Windows) and ImageBrowser (Macintosh) to help you manage and edit your images. You can also use the CANON iMAGE GATEWAY – 100MB of free internet space that allows you to share your images via email. And you can print your pictures without a PC to any PictBridge or Canon Direct Print compatible printer.
