The Canon EOS-1D, a new digital SLR camera, offers 4-megapixel resolution, continuous shooting speed of 8 fps for up to 21 consecutive frames at full resolution, and an "exceptionally strong dust and weather-resistant magnesium alloy body."
Other features of the EOS-1D include a 45-point autofocus, a 21-point evaluative metering system, and numerous functions for fine-tuning camera settings as well as new RAW + JPEG mode which can capture a RAW image and JPEG simultaneously. The EOS-1D has a single slot for Type I or II CompactFlash (CF) memory cards and a FireWire interface.
The $6,500 camera is bundled with Adobe Photoshop LE for image editing and Canon's RemoteCapture for real-time single frame shooting, self-timer shooting, and interval shooting.
