The Canon PowerShot Pro1 is the new flagship model in Canon’s PowerShot series of compact digital cameras. Offering the most advanced specifications in the series, the Pro1 features an eight-megapixel CCD image sensor for class-leading resolution, and a built-in Canon L (Luxury) Lens which, renowned in the company’s EF-series lineup of interchangeable lenses for EOS AF SLR cameras, delivers superlative image quality.
Maximizing the benefit of the image sensor’s eight-megapixel resolution, the PowerShot Pro1’s L Lens marks a world first for a compact digital camera with the inclusion of a fluorite lens element, in addition to UD (ultra-low dispersion) and aspherical lens elements. As a result the L Lens effectively corrects for a variety of aberrations, including secondary spectrum (residual chromatic aberration), for exceptional image quality throughout the zoom range. Though compact in size, the lens realizes a 7x (equivalent to 28-200mm in 35mm format) optical zoom ratio enabling a broad shooting range from wide angle to telephoto. Also, while realizing a high zoom ratio, the lens is exceptionally bright, offering a maximum-aperture range of f/2.4-3.5 to permit the use of fast shutter speeds in low-light conditions as well as making possible background blur effects.
