Welcome to this 1D4 section, Levina ... as much as I liked my 1D3, the 1D4 has been a revelation to me. Tonight I will shoot amateur sports with it and a 300mm f/4L IS (what it "meant" to do, I often read), but I must say I use it for most everything and haven't been disappointed ... hope you have the best of luck with yours (if these first images are any indication, it will awesome in your hands)!

Maxdave

Thanks very much, Maxdave. The 1D4 is definitely in a different league than the 1D3. I'm loving it! But I need to rethink my sharpening. The files from the 1D4 are incredibly sharp and need very little sharpening. Files from my 1D3 needed quite a bit more.

Thank you very much, RD. I hope your copy will be as good as mine!

I've only had my 1D4 for about a month. I agree with Levina that it requires re-learning my processing skills. Honestly, every different camera has forced me to tweak my skills a bit. With the 1D4, I have almost decided that raw is pointless. If I use custom WB and get exposure within 1-stop, raw doesn't gain me much. The JPG files from this camera are very nice. I'm just curious, has the 1D4 prompted any of you to (mostly) stop shooting raw?

No. Never. Too much loss of information. Will friends, family or "admirers" ever see a difference? Probably not. Will it be visible to me maybe even in my head only? Yes, all the time.

It's like listening to music files in FLAC vs compressed MP3. I can hear the difference ...

I want to be in control and therefore any compression happens on my terms.

Cheers.

I can't imagine shooting in jpegs either, Tom. It's true that the files from the 1D4 don't need a lot of processing, but I still want total control over my files and so it's RAW all the way for me. :-)

Since 2004 I have used 1-series Canon bodies almost exclusively and shot JPEGs. They produce great files and there's a whole lot of control in these bodies and a whole lot of consistency too.

As a back up to my full frame 1DX I bought a new 5D3 and found the white balance less reliable. I guess those shooting with non-1-series will benefit the greatest from shooting raw as the processors won't be up to the level of the 1-series naturally as something has to give due to the different price points.

Ok, so far, I've primarily shot the 1DIV in really good light. Maybe I need to take it into other environments and play with the results. Or maybe I am just getting lazy. When shooting primarily a 60D with slow lenses, I got a lot of practice with LR. The 6D offered improvements. Buying faster glass brought my ISO down into the 'it doesn't matter' range. I think I'll start pushing the 1DIV a bit harder, and see what happens.

I shot Swifts that are breeding in nest stones at the Eastern Docklands, which is my back yard. There's a whole colony there. The difficulty is twosome: getting them as big in the frame as you can, and getting the exposure right and I struggle particularly with the latter, because they're basically black blobs in the sky; they need to be in the right position towards the sun and in the right quadrant of the sky to show some body detail. Here's one of the better shots.

Yesterday I went to the countryside to shoot Barn Swallows. The youngsters are practising flight and are such a pleasure to watch. They're so playful in the air, interacting with one another. It's just great. I sat there for hours and I a few nice shots of them as well but need to process them. Meanwhile here are two shots of adults bringing home some goodies, even though it's a bit hard to see. :-)

Just one shot of the youngsters. I so wish I had longer glass. I tried the 400/5.6 with the Kenko 1.4xTC for a little while and I did get a couple of decent shots with it, but most are just soft and out of focus. It just doesn't work well with playful young Swallows!

That's just a perfect image, Levina. They are so hard to track as they dart about.

Seriously applaud these shots Levina! BIF I find difficult at the best of times with large, relatively slow flyers like eagles and osprey. The fact you caught barn swallows is frankly amazing to someone of my poor BIF skill - great captures!
