Thank you for showing me that a wonderful affordable pro camera is a great way to enjoy this hobby. Here I am fussing about having to save up 3K for a DIII. I could see having a great time with an older pro Canon.
The camera is just so much fun! I'm really surprised with the image quality I love it. I actually had 2 older 1D cameras recently. Last weekend I bought a 1Ds mark II from a pawn shop and sold it a day later for a good profit. I've never had a 1D camera before but I do love them now! I love the blue LCD lights so much more than orange. Also this is my first time with the apsh sensor and I really like it!
speaking of the mkiii, would you say there is anything lacking from the 1ds that you really miss? I love old tech too, but I can't help but think you are romanticizing exactly how great it is.
