Data Verification Kit
The EOS-1Ds is the world's first digital SLR that can prove its images are unaltered, original files. Optional Data Verification Kit DVK-E1, consisting of a dedicated IC card and card reader together with special Windows 2000/XP software, is avavilable to verify that EOS-1Ds images are absolutely unaltered. The system is so precise, that even the slightest discrepancy is detected. This may well be a landmark for digital imaging in law enforcement and many other documentary uses.
The EOS-1Ds comes equipped with an IEEE 1394 ("Firewire") interface, allowing speedy plug-and-play data communication with computers. For studio photography, new 4.5m IEEE 1394 cables are available. The camera automatically formats the CF card according to the maximum storage capacity.
