Well after several months of having the 1D IV, I sold my 1DS Mark III and replaced it with a second 1D IV, every time I used the 1DS III I was wanting more reach and higher ISO. I do not think I will miss the 21 MP, I sell as many 20X24 wall portraits show with the ID IV as I did that one and to be honest can not tell enough difference to overcome the great ISO range and speed of the newer body.

Hi,

I've just acquired a 1D IV and have some questions. I've read the instructions (well more than half) and have some pictures

Taken in sRAW, used DPP

I'm sorry but I don't know how to do 100% crop!:( but here's with some trimming done

For 1, the focus point is exactly under her chin. Why is it out of focus? She standing as still as a 1.5yr old can be reasonably expected to.
For 2, the focus point is on the chest on the flower. It's perfectly in focus (as to be expected)
2 was taken 20secs after 1.

The EXIF data for both pics is as follows:

35mm 1.4L @ 1/200s, f2.0, ISO 640
AI servo
CFn III 2- minus 1 AI servo tracking sensitivity
CFn III 3-0 AF priority.tracking priority
CFn III 4-1 Continuous AF track priority
CFn III 5-0 Focus search on
CFn III 8-2 AF expansion surrounding points
CFn III 10-3 Inner 9 points

What should I be changing to get the first pic in focus?

I have another set of her when walking and the same happened - first shot OOF, 2nd shot OK.

I haven't been able to use the camera much today but this has happened a couple of times. Is there anything in the settings I need to be aware of?

My guess is you should be using one shot. You use almost Identical settings as me. I might recommending turning on the Show AF point and then posting that image. I assume you are selecting the focus point yourself instead of using the matrix. Also I'm a little confused on your choice of AF spots as I usually focus on the eyes so I haven't run into this issue

I've had similar problems with my 1D4. I use rear-button focus, and I'm in servo mode almost all the time. This camera should be able to lock focus - and hold it! - in servo mode. In the next instant, that cute child could start moving. We shouldn't have to push a button and turn a dial before the camera is ready for that next situation. But my 1D4 will miss one or two frames out of three, or will go zero for one, on scenes that are simple. It's very, very frustrating. I think my 1D3 did better, actually. I hope Canon issues a firmware update to improve low-light AF on this camera.

I don't know how to make a screen shot into a jpg. That's why I gave a description of where the AF point should be.:( If you can tell me how to do, I'll put it up.

For a top notch AF camera after x generations of development, does it really matter (at that light level) if the AF point is on somewhere else on the face but not on the eyes?

I selected the AF point and inner 9 points to get the focus on her face. I'm not that picky but the first picture is so obviously OOF and she is stationary! Even AF servo should get fairly close to the correct focus point.

My expectation is that the camera's AF should be better than my 5D2 in photographing my children.

I have to agree with Jimlevitt's post. ie

We shouldn't have to push a button and turn a dial before the camera is ready for that next situation

edit Just worked out how to do the screen shot showing the focus point on the OOF photo

I haven't seen this with my 12800 iso, how was this processed?

Processed with standard LR3.2 workflow with very minor noise reduction applied - I'm sure it would clean up more if I had noise removal software of some sort... 1D Mark IV, 70-200 f4L IS + 2x extender, ISO 12,800

I had people emailing me and accusing me of faking the EXIF data on this shot when I posted it on a Nikon forum... and they didn't believe that I could use AF at f8 either... :lol:

(and I still don't get why some people think the 1D IV has trouble focusing in low light - I haven't seen any indication of it yet)

THANK YOU. I am a Canon fan boy but I am having the SAME problem with my Mark IV. When coupled with my 300 mm f/2.8L shooting my kids soccer, I am getting more than my share of OOF shots at shutter speeds exceeding 1/2000 - even with almost stationary subjects. I pulled up the shots with DPP instead of LR to see the AF points and its the same thing. I verified the point was on the mark but still OOF. What gives here? I am not in the top 10 at Sportsshooter.com but I am talented enough to know at AI servo, 200 ISO, M mode, etc. I have my settings correct. Something is wrong.

Have you guys called customer service at 1-800-OKCANNON...if what you suggesting is indeed correct, they will e-mail a prepaid shipping label to ship it back.
With the caveat that it is covered under warranty and purchased from a approved dealer and not e-bay.
