Would this be another 1D Mark III debacle?  Thoughts and experiences.

Update: Based on serial no. and lack of markings, mine is affected.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Arca Swiss Clamp
« on: November 22, 2012, 03:46:29 AM »
Hello everyone!  Just wanna give back to this great forum of which I've been lurking for several months now, but only joined a few days ago, and share a nice accessory I saw online a couple of weeks ago, decided to order a few days ago, and received today.

I've been a "SpiderPro Dual Camera System" user for several months now.  It's a great back-saver.  I've also been a "BlackRapid RS-2 Sport 2 Camera Strap" user for a couple of years now.  It's an easy way to transport and a quick way to shoot with your DSLR.  To me those two accessories are indispensable for comfort and efficiency.

If you're like me and have been looking for a solution to use a SpiderPro System with an arca-swiss L-bracket or plate, here is a necessary accessory to pick up.  Does it have the same quality as Kirk and RRS arca-swiss products?  I'd say it's pretty close.  Would I have total confidence that this can hold up the weight of my camera,  zoom lens (and perhaps a flash) combo?  Only time will tell.  IMHO and limited experience, so far, so good. Will update this post as I get more field-time with it.

Check it out! http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/26662953_GDf2hz

If you want to use a BlackRapid strap with the above accessory, SpiderPro has an adapter http://www.spiderholster.com/arca-swiss-adapter.html so you can use, say a Kirk QRC-1 or a RRS B2-FAB-F, and not have to unscrew the SpiderPro clamp.

I am not, in any way, related to SpiderPro.  I'm just a customer sharing a good find to everyone here.

Mods, if this is in the wrong forum, I apologize and please feel free to move it to the pertinent forum.  Thanks.

Hey Everyone!

Oh 1D, how do I love thee?  Let me count the ways.....  :D

Just got my 1D X yesterday.  Been gun-shy because of this little "issue"(http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=10847.45) (credit to Northstar for starting the thread).

Anyways, just thought I'd share some of my ambient lowlight shots.  All with a 100L.  All SOOC JPEGs...no PP.  Absolutely unscientific and non-award-winning...all snapshots.  Just toying around with on-cam settings and familiarizing myself with the abundant (current 5DMk3 owner) settings.  The 1D X molds in my hand way better than my 5DMk3 with BG-E11.  So far, it's been a joy to use.

Just to let you all know where I'm coming from and for future reference, I'm not a pixel-peeper nor a chart-shooter.  No disrespect whatsoever to people that do...just not my cup of tea.
