So question for you guys. I know you need a firewire cable to change settings etc in EOS utility, but question for you guys, can I use a 4-pin to firewire 800 cable so it hooks up to my iMac, or does it only work with firewire 400 (and if so, will a 400-800 adapter work)?

Beautiful pastel colors in your sunset Jeff. Btw, it was only 103° here today.

I finally found the time to send my Ds off to Canon so hopefully, I'll be able to contribute more to this thread soon.

Thanks, Gene!

Hope everything goes well with your repair!

Cheers!

Yeah, same here. Within the 60's throughout most of the day with no humidity.

Which is peculiar.

This thread is awesome! Wow, after watching the price go down so hard, it's sure nice to see the 1Ds Mark II still in action by so many!

After a lot of evaluation on bodies and lenses, I just recently picked up a 7D for my studio work, because the combination of lighter weight, image quality, and certain new high-end EF-S lenses made a huge difference in workflow. The 1Ds Mark II was rather heavy in the studio, and focal length ranges usable for belly dancers with such a full-frame camera seemed more limiting. I truly find the 1.6x FoVCF more creatively useful, and the much larger LCD display are more helpful for feedback to the dancers.

At the same time, I think I will never sell my 1Ds Mark II (aside from it being too late to extract any reasonable value). It's just a seriously solid camera, and there are situations where a full-frame really is more helpful. I think mine has gone over 250000 shutter activations, but it's still performing strong.

I wonder why people would pay $2k for the 1DS2 which is at least 5 years old when you can buy the newer 5DMK2 for the same amount of money. Sure the 1DS2 AF is remarkable and the build is better but the 5DMK2 has higher pixel count and can do video.

I have both, and I must say each has it's place. Which one to go for depends on what is your shooting needs. I say 5d2 is amazing for landscapes and studios, whilst 1dsmk2 shines in the build, open and in events.

Just a small question guys, my apologies if this was a repeated question somewhere in the forum.

For the SD cards, can the 1dsmk2 support the 16/32Gb options?

I've never tried 32GB, but I have a 16GB SD card in my 1Ds2 right now and it works just fine.
