I've been after a 1Dc for some time now. Coming from experience, would any of you recommend selling my XTi and using the cash to get one of these? Is the drop in MP too much to even consider such a trade? I need help, preferably from someone who has experience with both cameras.

Thanks,

Benjamin

The XTI is a better camera in the sense that it has much better IQ than the old 1Dc. The 1Dc is a great camera, but many of the newer cameras outshine the 1Dc. The handling of the 1Dc is pretty great, though. I had an XTI and short of the camera being tiny, it was a solid performer, the 1Dc is great because of the fast shutter, it's viewfinder and weather sealed body, but the drop in MP and the lowered ability to crop shots will make you think harder about what you include in your shots. Though I have used an XTi in the rain/snow without frying it.
Personally, I like my 1Dc but I use it less than I do the 1D2.

The problem is, I need faster frame rate and a better AF system. I'm also on a very tight budget.

In that case this is the camera body for you,I still use my 400D but the 1D gets used for 80% of my photo work.

I am counting on a work bonus coming in soon. Would you advise against the 1D Mark ii over the Classic? How do they compare?

Great Macro Shot, btdrygulch!

: I would recommend asking about the 1D MkII v 1D Classic on the MkII Thread as some owners will have had both, infact I would be very suprised if no-one on that Thread still had both.

I cannot speak from experience as I have never even used a mkII,, but I am told that the battery life is better with the MkII (the actual Battery is the same, the MkII just uses it more economically). I think the Flash Sync is slower on the MkII (1/250th v 1/500th) & the max Shutter Speed is slower (1/8000 v 1/16000). Obviously the Sensor has more pixels on the MkII.

DP Review http://www.dpreview.co​m/reviews/canoneos1dmk​ii/ (external link) is well worth a read.

To a large extend I expect you would be influenced by how large your bonus is, just a simple economics made my choice of the 1D Classic an easy one!

Thank you for such a lengthy and detailed response. I will be sure to post in that thread. Enjoy your Classic! ;)

Unfortunately, I have been unable to locate the Mark II thread. Could you please provide a link?

Reading back through this Thread, Doomed gave this comment in an earlier response to one of your questions:-Personally, I like my 1Dc but I use it less than I do the 1D2. That sums it up pretty well, but maybe he will give a more detailed account?

While IQ is obviously a combination of the capabilities of the Body & Lens, I am with the Glass enthusiasts. I currently only have 1 L Lens (EF300 f4L) , I don't think I could justify upgrading to a later 1D Body while so little of my glass is of L quality. Unless my 1D Classic breaks to force the issue anyway!

Love the image quality, but hate the LCD screen. Especially the bad colour
