* First 8 Megapixel PowerShot
PowerShot Pro1 gives you the creative performance of a high-end SLR
camera with the digital capability and ease of use inherent to the
PowerShot line. The camera's 8 Megapixel CCD captures life to the extent
that even prints of 8" x 10" or larger are highly detailed and
* L Lens
The PowerShot Pro1 incorporates Canon's top-of-the-line lens, the L
Lens, legendary among professional photographers. Driven by an
Ultrasonic Motor, the super-fast 28-200mm (35mm equivalent) f/2.4-3.5
lens uses fluorite and UD (Ultra-low dispersion) glass for clear, sharp
image delineation with an absolute minimum in chromatic aberration. Also
incorporated is an Aspherical lens, precision-manufactured to within 0.1
microns, which corrects spherical aberrations and curvilinear distortion
while keeping the zoom lens compact.
* Shooting Modes
PowerShot Pro1 offers shooting modes (see below) for every situation and
level of photographic experience. Photo Effects in Vivid Color, Neutral
Color, Low Sharpening, Sepia, Black & White and Custom are also
available, boosting the artistry of your shots instantly.
Three light-metering modes deliver precise exposure: evaluative
metering, center-weighted average metering and spot metering, which lets
you measure exposure at the chosen AF point or the center of the frame
for an exceptional level of control. And the camera's innovative
FlexiZone AF/AE system lets you move the AF point around the frame to
focus on off-center subjects without reframing the shot, and connects
the AF point to the exposure system when the camera is in spot metering
