EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: I just finished comparing my old 1Ds MkII (mark two!) and the new 5D MkIII« on: February 06, 2013, 02:50:09 PM »
This thread has to be a joke. Either way, it's really, really awful.
What is a joke here?
My 1Ds MkII has already had one shutter worn out and replaced,
now the count on the replacement shutter is around 160.000.
I guess it is time to get myself a new camera!
I shoot mostly in studio, or outdoors with additional lights.
ASA is set at 100 for 90% of my work.
I don't do sport, photojournalism or weddings,
so fps speed and high ASA performance are not really important to me.
1Dx is not a good investment for me, with the high MP around the corner.
So, I wanted to replace my prehistoric 16.7MP camera with the latest 22MP one,
that would do the work temporarily while I'm waiting for the high MP Canon to appear.
...And in the transition process I got surprised how well my old camera did compared to the new one.
I just expected more after 8 years of technology development.
Is the new camera right for my needs, or the old one will do the better job?
In the studio I shoot tethered, camera is remotely controlled via firewire and the clients look at images on a 27" screen.
So, this thread started as a comparison of image quality at f8 and 100ASA, between cameras that are 8 years apart.
Nothing really more to it!
...And no! You do not need to sell your cameras and start hunting for an used 1DsII. Nobody said that.
1DsIII might be better.
