EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: SDHC vs Compactflash
« on: December 08, 2013, 02:54:00 AM »
One thing that you might want to consider is what type of computer/laptop you have. For example, i have a 1ds mark 3 and although i can use both CF and Sdhc, i prefer to use SD card because i have macbook pro. It has a built in SD slot and therefore it is much easier and convinient to use.

Just my 2 cents

I have a 1d mark 3 and the pixel is more than enough for internet and anything less than 20x20 print. I can even crop a photo very tight and still come out with a good print. How much more with the 20+ pixel of 1ds mark 3. I've rented the 5d mark 2 and 3 and personally i don't like the file they produce. Unlike the 1d(s) series, i can push their file and still give me a good result. I did the same with the 5d's and i didn't like the result.

Bottom line: get the 1ds mark 3

70-200 IS ii all day on aps-h and fullframe sensors.

@Robert Welch....very true. I thought about selling my 1D mark iii but I cant let go of it because of that same reason. I also own a 1Ds mark iii which i would not let go until it dies on me (dead pixel, drown in water, get stolen, etc). I've rented 5D mark iii for a engagement shoot i did for two reason, first, because I want to see and perhaps experience what is it like to have 5D mark iii, second, because I sent both my 1D series for clean up. Personally, Im not impress with 5D mark iii except for high ISO capability and focus system. For what I do, the focus system of both my camera are more than enough.

First of all, you need to remember that by the end of the day, these are just equipments. I have both 1D mark III and 1Ds mark III, they serve diff purposes. As other have mentioned, 1d are good in terms of sports and wildlife while the 1ds is good in terms of studio photos, on location portrait session and landscape/architechtural photos. However, both are outdated with their ISO capabilities which the 5d mark III shines.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Worth getting an SD card for 5D3?

If you don't need it for fast burst then sd card is fine. I own a 1D(s) mark III's and rented 5d mark 3 before, and personally i don't need cf card. Maybe because I'm using macbook pro as my main computer as it has a sd card slot built in. It may sound silly to make it as a reason but for me its very convinient.

On a side note, I only use sandisk extreme pro sd card and they are very reliable. So, if you will get one, make sure get something that is realiable and has a good reputation.

Lenses / Re: Anyone upgraded from their 24-70L to 24-70L MKII?

You ask a lot!  Not many people can afford both lenses to take side by side comparison shots.  While not ideal, here is at least some attempt to do so:

http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/ISO-12233-Sample-Crops.aspx?Lens=101&Camera=453&Sample=0&FLI=4&API=0&LensComp=787&CameraComp=453&SampleComp=0&FLIComp=4&APIComp=0

A chart is simply a real world photograph.  ;D

I want a data from a real world pictures taken by both lenses. Side by side comparison, not cropped, not post processed. That's what i want.  ;D :D i don't want numbers!

Smart, smart, i like that....oooops i think i mentioned "no cropped" just regular size. But i like it, point taken.

Thats true, not a lot of people can buy both lenses because they are indeed very expensive.

You reminded me my 4yrs kid. This discussion is closed :-X

Calm down calm down daddy...you have post too much in this forum already. Why won't you go out in the real world and take some real photos instead of reading and writing some comments. Practice make perfect!!

A lot of people who bought the 24-70 mark ii are trying to convince themselves as well as others that they made a good(perhaps "worth it") purchase. Wake up people don't lie. The fact is, this argument whether the mark ii is worth the upgrade from mark 1 is the same thing as the argument of having more pixels. When you only view the image 100% crop then you will notice those things. Other than that, you will barely notice(if you will notice) the better sharpness. For the record, i owned both but end up selling the mark ii after 2 months of extensive use.

How much are you selling it for and how much is the shutter count?

The 1Ds Mark III is to this day still ranked FIRST out of all Canon cameras in skin tone accuracy.  Try it out.  Even the 1DX is slightly off, but the 1Ds3 never is.

That's good to know specially coming from someone that has both 1dx and 1ds3.

There doesn't seem to be a market to recoup costs on second hand ones though... and once you work with a 1DX, the 1Ds III looks and feels like a dinosaur... I was cursing even at the lack of a Q button... and the ISO performance is nothing short of stellar on the 1DX.

Agreed.  I feel like the 1DX is like a 1Ds3/1D4 combo camera.  The RAW files are much, much easier to push, the IQ is outstanding across an insanely large ISO spread, and man is it fast!  The sensor is better in the 1DX vs the 1Ds3. 

But I'm off topic.  I did use a 1Ds3 myself and I loved the camera.  But since I do sports and other things, I need ISO flexibility.  In studio, or in well-lit situations, the 1Ds3 is a monster.  Even today, almost 6 years later, it is probably Canon's 2nd or 3rd best camera.

Great, that is exactly what I want to hear. ;D Im a happy camper now since this camera is really a beast. I don't really shoot that much at night time and if I do, I use flash. Also, I think that is where my 1.2's and 1.4's aperture that are going to get use.

My 1DsMk3 was $2300 delivered so $1400 is fantastic and a gift. I passed up a lot of $2600-2700 priced bodies. This low price insulates you from being hurt financially if there *are* problems down the road.

Get it.

Do you know by any chance or have heard something about 1ds3 having a premature shutter breaking problem?
Any website that you can recommend to order a spare battery. I would like to get a canon lp-e4 because the battery has rubber sealing around it but the problem is, it will cost me an arm. I would like to get a cheap yet a good quality third party batteries. Ive looked at amazon and ebay already but people have diff experiences with their batteries. So i kinda want to hear other peoples oppinion that actually have owned third party batteries.

a 1Dmk3 will complement the 1Dsmk3 in the following ways

- share the same batteries, currently yhe 1Dsmk2 and 1Dsmk3 have different batteries and chargers
- 10 fps
- the 1Dmk3 has a better buffer and is better for sustained shooting (smaller files vs 1Dsmk3)
- identical controls, both cams have dual cards etc
- however the image does not really benefit from the 1.3 crop factor in giving extra reach as if you crop the 21MP file to 1.3 you basically get the same 10 MP or so of the 1Dmk3

if you get a 1Dmk3 make sure its either

a) a late model number that does not suffer from the AF issue
b) comes with proof that it had the AF issue fixed

how much are you looking at paying for the 1Dsmk3?

$1400 for less than 4000 shutter count.
I know the person who's going to sell me the 1ds3 that's why its hard to pass with this kind of deal. I'm so overwhelmed that i can't even go sleep anymore. I guess I'm going to sell my 1ds2 so i can use the money to buy the 1d3. I'm thinking that maybe having 2 FF will be overkill for what i do. I mean, i get paid sometimes to do some work such as event occasion and some other type of shoot.

I think the 1.3 crop sensor of 1d3 will benefit me if i use it with my 85 f1.2 and sigma 50f1.4 wide open since the edges will be crop out, leaving me the center of the frame sharp shooting wide open.
