The 1D Mark III for some things, the 1Ds Mark III for others.

Would you seriously avoid a better camera just because the ability to shoot video exists someplace in the menus? That is illogical. The addition of video does not remove anything from the camera as a still photography tool.

I don't shoot video, but I certainly don't worry about the fact that both bodies I have can do it.

5D classic
1D MKIII
1Ds MKIII
1Ds MKII

Those are what I prefer with no video. The IQ is stunning on those. Not to say that other Canon DSLR can't do the same.

I don't believe that Canon offers any DSLR without video nowadays. As for the best you could obtain without it, you would be looking at the most recent model 1D or 1Ds before video came along, which I think would be the 1D mark III, or 1Ds mark III. Which is better depends on what you want to do with it, the 1D is the better sport and action camera, the 1Ds the better portrait, landscape, wedding camera etc.

I agree with the others, so what if it has, or has not, got video capability? You also do not say what you plan to shoot with it. Sports or wildlife would lean you towards a 1D series, portraits or landscape may lean you towards a 5D series. I have a 5D2 and have never used it for video, ever.

if you don't like it or want it don't use it.

doesn't make a difference whether the camera does video or not, your camera will still function the same with or without it. but if you must have the best camera that does not have video i guess it would be a 1ds3

Pretty good list and I would put my "no video" list about the same way but would have:
1DsMkIII
1DMkIII
1dsMkII
5D classic.

However, I would not put any of those on the top of the IQ pile. They are all really good cameras but the ones with video are better IQ wise.

So, I'm agreeing with others. If you do not want video, don't use it.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

If u don't shoot video, then don't use the video function, as simple as that. If you really insist, then get some older Dslr but warn you, IQ won't be as good as the newer ones!

I don't think the 1Dx has been released for sale yet, so that would technically make the 1Ds3 a new in production camera that has not yet been replaced.

Technically, maybe, if you can find one for sale, I don't think it is still in production though. I just checked 3 major online suppliers and all offer the 1Dx for preorder (one stating that it should be available end of march) but none have the 1Ds3 for sale any more.

It is just semantics though, the 1Ds3 may still be available new in some stores who have old stock, but I don't see any new stock arriving so, whilst the replacement may or may not be a few days away, the old one is out of production as far as I can tell. The key part of my answer though (which was that the 1Ds3 and 1D3 are the best of the non video bodies) still stands, regardless of whether the 1Ds3 is still technically current (if only for a few more days or weeks) or not.

Either way, I still believe that Canon are no longer offering a body without video, as they no longer seem to be supplying the 1Ds3, and probably haven't produced any for a little while, as the production line has probably switched over to the 1Dx now. That doesn't mean that you won't be able to dig out a new one if you shop around (you can still find the 1D3 new if you look hard enough).

So you would turn down a 5D Mark II (or III) just because it has video?? I had a 7D for almost a year and didn't shoot one frame of video on it. I have a 1D Mark IV and it will probably never see a frame of video.

Honestly, I dont shoot video at all, but ever since getting my 5D2, its been invaluable to have that feature! You never know when you want to shoot a short video clip and the feature is accessible in 2 button clicks.
