EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 1Ds mark iii????
« on: March 13, 2013, 11:35:34 PM »
If i sell my 1Ds mark ii and get 1D mark iii, would that compliment 1Ds mark iii or should I just keep my 1dsii and forget about getting crop sensor at all. I don't do sports and if i do it would be just a once-in-a-while thing. I'm not saying that crop sensor or 1d series body are only for sports but i just want to know whether it would be better for me to sell my 1dsii or keep it.

How i wish i have money for 1Dx. For now my budget only gets me a 1Ds mark iii. I was looking through flick photos of 1dsiii and it seems that all the photos along with there respective lens combo(which i also have) seems to be really good. I just recently moved from aps-c sensor to FF and boy the image quality is much better.

You'll love the 1Ds3.  Just know its limitations and what ISO range to use to maximize its IQ.  It is a studio camera remember, so I wouldn't use it for sports if you can help it.  The ISO's required to shoot high action sports sometimes go beyond what the 1Ds3 is capable of doing.  If you stay ISO 100-400 it's still probably the very best at getting accurate skin tones out of camera.

Probably at the most i'll be using up to 800ISO and occasionally 1600ISO since my slowest lens is f2.8. I would love to see this beast with my 85 f1.2 and my sigma 50f1.4. I'm already inlove with my 1ds mark ii with all my lenses. I can only imagine how nicer it will get with markiii.

I will use it primarily for portrait. In daytime and in night time. But for the most part i'll be using strobes and ISO below 800. I just like the build quality of 1d bodies. It feels solid and well balanced with my 24-70 and 70-200.

So tell me, what exactly is wrong with the live view mode of 1ds mark iii? I wont say i'll never use it but i found myself using it very seldom with my 60d.

Any other issue/s that i should know in regards of how 1ds mark iii's flaws?

I recently posted a question about 1ds mark ii. I had a chance to get one for a very low price with low shutter count. Boy, i was amazed with the image quality and just the overall feeling of having a 1d series.

Now, i have a chance to yet own a 1d series. Its 1ds mark iii.

My question is, how does 1ds mark iii hold up against its newer brothers. Hold up, meaning, in terms of image quality, build quality, functionality, and just the overall specs of this camera?

The 1Ds II is unfortunately not on DSLR Controller's device list otherwise I would suggest picking up a cheap android device:

yeah no usb, its firewire only


The camera has an USB 1.1 port however no liveview. For checking the pictures on a larger screen you could look at the program Shuttersnitch which support different brands of WiFi cards.


I was looking through the website of shuttersnitch. Thanks for the input. I guess since I'm using an iphone, i can download the app then buy some eyr-fi card so i can use it...

Because i'll be using it more on location shoot rather than studio/home. I already have macbook pro and the cable for tethered shooting. If only i can afford a 1dx then it wouldnt be such a big problem dealing with small lcd screen

Is there any wire that i can use to connect my iphone to 1ds mark ii? I was thinking about using eye-fi card but it doesn't help at all because i want to use this in on location shoot since 1ds mark ii's screen is pretty small

I shoot wedding, portrait, babies anything with people. And I also shoot mostly in daytime and if I do shoot at night time, I use strobes using ISO 1000 at the most.

Well the 1Ds mark II did originally come with AC adapter and dummy battery so in worst case you could use an external 12V battery!

That is assuming you get it with the dummy bat.

Will T.

So then, assuming that I get the dummy battery, the next problem is, how am I going to use it on location shoot where there is plug outlet

How bad are lithium batteries that 1Ds mark II uses?

they arent lithium thats the problem the are NiMH and they get the memory effect
I would work on the basis that most are going to be well worn out and need to be replaced

Im just really torn since its kinda hard to pass on this 1Ds mark II deal. I guess as long as I get to use it within a year then i'll be more than happy to have this camera. I wonder if someone ever came up with a battery tray that can be used in 1D bodies that takes eneelop batteries
