Hi folks,

Just wonder is anyone here using 1D series for street photography?

Is street photography camera must be really small?

Please share your comments.

Folks repeatedly say you must be inconspicuous yet it's still a camera up in your grill. If it's not spytech, it's seen, if it's seen, well then the notion it must be rangefinder sized is just fashion for the genre. Shoot with what you got.
EOS 5D3, EOS M5 and no room left in the 1510.

Don't have a 1D but I use a gripped 7d on a hand strap which isn't to far off in size. I don't find body size an issue I believe lens size (love those little pancakes) and noise more important. Noise is the worst thing about my  combo. So 1dx noise would be my concern.

I do.

However, my "street photography" is usually at street fairs and festivals where there is a lot going on.  I will usually use a 24-70 2.8 II. 

I try to be stealthy, and nonchalant, and do so rather well.  If I see someone that is particularly interesting, I may approach and ask permission to photograph him/her while he goes about his business.

So I agree, go with what you got.

Plus lots of stuff that just didn't work for me

I usually use my 6D + 40mm pancake for street photography, may try to use 28mm more in future for different kinds of street shoot.

saw someone using NIKON D5 + 24-70mm f2.8 for street photography during last Christmas, just curious....

no offence, but I think every camera will be fine for street photography.

cheers....
