Yes one of the things I have learned with the 1D is I need the picture in the viewfinder that I want. Makes you think about the shot before you take it.

You think the 1D makes you do that, you should try the 3.2mp D30 that I have! There's even less room for cropping on that! lol


Some bodies, some lenses, and that's all I'll list in case the wife sees this. ;)

I have one of them as well and my wife is learning to shoot on it and I use it as a second body! Use to have a 30D but that grew lags....

That's what I thought you meant... yea I just kinda go with the flow maybe take multiples if I have the oppurtunity.

And I know what you're talking about with the select button... wasn't sure if mine was broken when I first got it :P But I prefer the double button system over having to dig in the menues to change those quick things like FPS and ISO.


Photography on my budget? WHAT WAS I THINKIN?!:confused:

Hi, first time to post here. Thank you for your insights on Canon 1d mk1.The comments here encouraged to get a canon 1D mk1. I love the colour it produce. It is at the moment with 50mm f1.4 but hoping to get a 35mm soon.

welcome zaprograph! I would say the mk1's only weakness is long exposure....otherwise you have a great time with this beast!

Question for some of you 1D users. How many days can your batteries hold a charge for or stay charged without use? It seems like my batteries have to be used right off the charger for it to get good usage.

The cells in your pack are dead. You either need a new battery pack, or mod the cells like I did. Check a page back and you'll see a picture of the battery modded with Eneloops, and my own findings on how long the Eneloop pack lasts, and how long an Ebay NP-E3 pack lasts.

Now, I'm just deciding if I should keep it and invest in a Lenmar and a microcontrolled nimh charger (Canon NC-E2 would be too expensive), or just give it up to kay188 who also has his eyes on it and the AC adapter :P

GIMMEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Hi Barronchung after 3+ years using my 1D zooming in does not worry me as you said it hits target 90% of the time with its AF
Try our 100-f2 on your 1D ,if its like mine it is very sharp

Oh yeah. After using it for quite a while now, I don't care for the zoom to check AF. I know the 1D will hit focus perfectly, and I even checked with a focus chart on all my lenses. They all hit it spot on. My XTi, I would say 75% are spot on, same lighting.

100 F/2? NAHHHH 135L!!!

I do miss a larger LCD screen and the magnification function to check exposure when test shooting, and shooting in event situations. I like to see whether or not to increase or decrease exposure more clearly in crazy lighting conditions such as heavy back stage lighting, or heavy front stage lighting... Stuff like that confuses the light meter with any camera!

I find that after two weeks my batteries will have lost some of their charge so if I know I am going to use the camera I charge them up the night before. Mine are just cheap aftermarket items and they are now near 3yrs old and still do over 300 shots a time, they cost me $45 NZ = arround $37 US .
I have been making use of the new HDR feature on Canons DPP recently and merging three photos using the AEB feature on the camera with some pleasing results.
As for the 135L Kay188 would be nice but $$$$$$$$ are all going to the tax man for a while.

I charged my Lenmar battery to full and placed it in the camera over a month ago. I took the camera out last Wednesday and rattled off about 200 shots in hi-burst with AI Servo and it still shows a full charge. The Lenmar battery in question is about a year old and has around 30 charge cycles on it.

I guess its time to replace all three of my battery packs! :cry:

But if I charged them the night before I would get 700+ shots. These same problems were reported 10 years ago with OEM batteries.

If you're not going to mod your packs, and thinking of throwing them out or something... give them to me. :D

I'll pay the shipping!!!! :)

But if I charged them the night before I would get 700+ shots. These same problems were reported 10 years ago with OEM batteries.

It is the battery type. The NIMH chemistry has a pretty bad self-discharge rate. Through use, it starts to develop even worse high self-discharge. That's why you only get 300 shots to none from a full charge when the pack is dead.

Regular NIMH, the self-discharge rates are dependant on what kind of brand the NIMH cells are. Good brands such as Sanyo, Powerex, etc are QUALITY built NIMH cells.
Their self-discharge rate is very good compared to cheap unbranded chinese cells, which is what I believe to be in these NP-E3 packs.

The Lenmar pack I modded, inside were 1700mah green factory chinese cells. I'm sure the cells are built okay as 1700mah is not a lot of power for 1AA cell, that's why the Lenmar pack lasts as long as the OEM Canon cells.

Now, LSD, Low Self-Discharge NIMH are a different kind of NIMH chemistry cells. They keep their charge for a very LONG time.

The first LSD NIMH cells were able to keep 80% of their charge after 1 year.
The new generation of LSD NIMH are able to keep 80% after 3 years.

The regular NIMH batteries self discharge when they're not being used, which is why users say their battery packs don't last long, but they get 700+ shots off the charger.

Mod the pack with LSD cells, and you'll be able to pull 1000+ shots on the new LSD pack day after day without needing to charge.
Mod the pack with high capacity NIMH cells such as 2700mah Sanyo, or 2700 Powerex cells, and you'll be able to take photos like no tomorrow.
