That is beautiful! Excellent Shot!!!

Thanks. I like how that camera renders, it is different from the others I have tried.

The only "trickery" was that I used one of those white diffuser discs to kill the shadows as the light was harsh. I experimented with it a bit and it has a place in my bag. That shot would have sucked without it.

Other than a sharpness setting of 2 in DPP, and downsized for upload here, that image is "as shot" and is not cropped. I like how the other flowers in the background faded into nice color blobs. I try to pay attention to the background, but never really know how it will turn out- especially with that camera because the LCD is useless in comparison to what is available today.

Canon 1D and 100L Macro

Cellphone pic... Galaxy Note 3. Cropped the extra out of the frame and reduced the file size for upload, no other changes.

I thought focus screens were pretty inexpensive,  all things considered.

So I bought a used 5D (thanks for the helpful suggestions) and a 17mm TS-E at the same time. While I would rarely if ever use the TS-E on the 5D, when I do I won't have live view to help me.
Now, those of you who have had dSLRs and tilt-shift lenses before the advent of live view, any advice or tips will be greatly appreciated. Should I, for example, get the grid screen? Any other screen? etc...

As above (Eldar's post), it  boils down to experience. Experience doesn't come without practice.

I have found the grid to be helpful with other lenses. Sometimes, it doesn't take much of a change in camera angle to alter converging lines when using wide angle lenses.

Whether or not you can see anything useful on the focus screen is another possible issue. I tried several different screens on a 5DII and just couldn't make it (manual focus) work. I never tried the assorted magnifiers and such- maybe I will revisit that.

The Year of the Lens has begun... :)

There is something unique about the colour from the early canon 1d bodies IMO


I finally dusted off the used but excellent condition 1D scored from eBay and I was pretty impressed. I like the rendering.

For a 4.2 mp camera, the files are quite nice- much much better than I was expecting. They seem "soft" out of the camera, but they clean right up with just a touch of sharpening in DPP.

I wonder how something like a 5DIII would do with a CCD sensor.

It's almost like using film- the display is just about useless compared to current day offerings :)

Ooh, can I play too? Taken with a Canon 1D (original) and 100 L macro, all JPEG SOOC...

Whether or not Canon will offer any goodwill gestures is anyones guess.

Technically, the camera is out of warranty and any manufacturer can simply say no- you are out of luck. Your only recourse is to play nice with someone at Canon customer service and hope for the best.

The other option open to you in the USA is a CPS membership. There are repair discounts based upon your membership level. Do you own enough gear to qualify?

If it is possible, purchasing a 3rd party warranty could help reduce the sting, but those typically have to be purchased while the manufacturer warranty is still in force.
