Daniel,
Welcome to the forum ! And yeah, the 1D2 is an awesome camera.

But then a 30D ain't no slouch ! :D

Had some time to fiddle around with this Canon IIn .
Only issue i'm having is setting my personal settings on the cam via firewire and Win7 X64.
Tried downloading the Vista 32bit drivers extacting them manually and tried installing them but still not working. Even tried installing a virtual machine with Mac OSx, but virtual machines don't support firewire :(

Called canon for support they said the cam isn't supported anymore because it's way to old.
When i said it's still even worth a Gold mebership status on the CPN he told me he also found it strange that Canon isn't supporting it anymore.

Anyone got any suggestions how to get rid of the wrong name in the camera using Win7 X64? :)

Wire Wess,

I dont think you can change any of the personal settings using Windows 7 you would have to use an older windows machine or mac

Yes you can make changes from win7 but only if you have a 32bit computer, The problem is that there are no 64bit drivers.

What JPEG settings do you guys use on the 1d2? I never realized how much the jpegs out of this thing suck when the shot didn't have bright light until now. Luckily I have a lot of raws to go back to.


My imagine composition sucks. I need a heavier lens.

with 7mb raw files, there is hardly a reason to shoot jpeg for me :)
delete the raw files after processing if you wish.

I can do that, as you say they aren't that big anyway.

I'm just curious in a what the heck way. Just using ufraw with camera defaults has much better jpegs than what the camera did - in lower light 400 iso pictures. I just went back to some older pictures that I also had raws for and there was little different. What's this thing doing there? It almost looks like a bad Eventone had been applied.

If you are wanting to shoot jpegs straight out of the camera, you would do well to experiment around and set the camera in different ways for different lighting conditions and see what looks good to you. My opinion is that the files out of a 1D2 need a fair amount of sharpening and some saturation, and under some lighting conditions, some added contrast as well. You can set all that of course in camera, and probably crank out jpgs that you like. If doing it that way, I would also shoot a tricolor target and run a custom WB for that lighting situation as well.

That's about it.

I am just wondering why the 1d2 processes jpegs differently for different lighting situations. I haven't observed that on other bodies. Whatever they do to the jpegs, they do it the same way (for the same menu parameters of course) regardless of lighting in the picture.
