Thanks stars! That means a ton coming from you. I follow your stuff on Flickr and I LOVE everything. Every shot you take is so bright and vibrant. I definitely believe that photographer's personalities come out in our work, and everything I see from you is so bright and vibrant and happy it puts me in a good mood. Keep it up!

Really appreciate it :D That means a lot. Take more puppy photos!

To my eye the third picture overall looks like it's a bit more exposed than the first two, maybe that's why the highlight areas have lost detail. Maybe underexposing by a half stop or so would bring that shot more in line with the others.

If they're all shot at the same ISO, then that's got a fair bit to do with the fact that the 5Dc's ISOs aren't of the same standard as the newer bodies... as in the sensor is more sensitive to light at the same ISO, than newer cameras, i.e ISO3200 on the 5Dc is about ISO4000 on newer ones, et cetera.

In any case... I'm thinking of selling my 5Dc + Sigma 24mm and 50mm lenses to buy a Sigma DP1 Merrill or a DP2 Merrill... I haven't hauled around my heavy DSLR for over a month now, and I've prettymuch exclusively shot with the X100... now I'm thinking that perhaps I should just use two very light but high image quality cameras.
Michael Reichmann's reviews of the new DP cameras gave me that idea... though I'm still of two minds on the matter. I'd miss the high ISO performance and the 24mm field of view... but I'd gain image quality at low ISOs and more importantly, I'd have a super light camera that I'd actually bring with me everywhere, because as I said, carrying around a heavy DSLR is a bit of an annoyance, and what's the point of owning a camera if one doesn't actually use it...

But we'll see...


A good photographer can take extraordinary photos anywhere, with any camera and any lens while a mediocre one will take mediocre ones everywhere, with every camera and every lens.
Never limit yourself with what others think you should do. Shoot what you find interesting, exactly the way you want to.

Question for all you 5d owners. I currently have a 1DIII for sports and such and love it but wonder if adding a 5d for my landscape and portrait work would be a wise/useful choice? In a perfect world I'd just buy a 5dIII and be done but can't afford that. Would there be enough difference in the censors to notice much of a difference? With all the used 5d's out there around $600 or less it's very tempting.

Why not? The 5Dc produces superb 12mp files. The only downside is not having an ideal AF system but I guess a lot of 5D/5D2 shooters learn to make-do with that they have. The only downside IMO is the LCD which can be appalling especially if you're shooting the newer bodies. But if you're coming from a 1D3 then it shouldn't be very far off.

Other than motorsports I haven't touched my 7D since I got the 5Dc.

I'm half tempted to sell them both to get the 5D mkIII

I would say its a good move to make, never had the 1DIII so can't really compare. I have had mine for about 5 years now. I do mainly landscape and some portrait work and since AF isn't really important there you should be fine, I also like the files that it produces. I have even thought about getting another body but I think I'll wait a bit and get the 5dIII. Mainly for the new AF and being updated but I am really not in rush for it.

wnichols, I was in the same boat as you, though the reason for me looking to buy a 5Dc was more a weight issue; I wasn't really looking forward to lugging my 1D3 around whilst travelling, and after much deliberation, bought myself a used 5Dc as opposed to entering into the m4/3 world and committing to a different system altogether...but I digress...:)

Anyways, some of my thoughts:

1. When you hold both bodies in your hand, your realize what a technological BEAST the 1D3 is, and just hardcore everything is...in terms of build quality, AF capabilities, having liveview etc, there really is no comparison here...

2. On the other hand, there is something very appealing (to me anyways) about the simplicity of the 5Dc. Can't remember where I've read it in this forum, but one of the members here put it quite succinctly when he/she said that (and I paraphrase here) having a 5Dc is taking photography to it's most basic and primal core, it's just you and the camera, no fancy video abilities or insane fps or crazy AF abilities...

3. In terms of IQ, to my untrained eyes, there isn't a great deal of difference between the two; they are fairly similar, with both possessing bloody good IQ, IMO. I would have thought there would be a bigger difference, but I just don't see it...maybe the leap from APS-H to FF isn't quite so great as APS-C to FF...

Look, if you really wanted to shoot landscapes and portraits with your 1D3, I don't see why you can't, provided you have the right lenses for it. But, really, to be able to own a second body with a FF sensor at $600, it's a no brainer to me...IMHO, there isn't anything else in the market at that price point that would get near a 5Dc in terms of IQ....so just buy one already! :D

Is the LCD such a big deal? I use mine for the histogram and settings. Yeah, its small, but if I can see a decent looking tiny photo on the screen, it makes me all the more excited to get home and see it blown up on a PC.
