Hey friends! Today, we’re reviewing one of my favorite film cameras, the Canon EOS 1V.
I’ve owned the Canon 1V for years, and it has seen me through so many different seasons and clients. This camera is a powerhouse and perfect for beginners and seasoned film shooters.
My favorite way to use this camera was at weddings when I needed to take a lot of images quickly, such as family portraits or ceremonies. So for me, the Canon 1V is the perfect companion when you need a robust and reliable 35mm film camera.
This camera needs an external light meter. I’ve found that the internal light meter on the Canon EOS 1V isn’t always reliable, and I have been burned with underexposed images a few times.
I hope you’re ready to get an arm workout because this camera is heavy. The heaviness of the camera typically isn’t an issue, but if you’re like me and have small hands, gripping the camera body for long periods can take a toll.
