Nice pumpkin patch shots, someone looks very happy to be there!

Twoshadows, I forgot....I've had a metal print done of a macro flower at 24x36 that's gorgeous! Don't worry about the size holding up, just use the heck out of it! ;)

Did I mention tonality? I've never seen the color tones in a rainbow like this camera shows. Shot with the 70-200 2.8L IS at 200mm. Check out the original, amazing! :)

Cool stuff on the past couple of pages. I'm finally sad to say that the camera sold...and will be shipped out in a day or two. Quite the memories I've had, and created, with it. But, it's time to move on. :)

twoshadows, no, I've printed 13x19, and there's tons more room to go. ;)

Thanks for the reply Manish. Greatly appreciated. I do print large often enough - and I like to push it AND I have access to 44" printers - so it is nice to hear. Sorry to hear your selling just as i'm buying, but i do understand the need...

Best,

Ian

Twoshadows, in relation to your print size concern just remember, what did the fashion industry use for top-of-the-line photography just a few years ago? When the 1DsMkII was new it was compared favorably and in some instances considered to surpass the Medium Format film camera of the day! I do believe they printed large fashion and this without the benefit of Perfect Resize 7!! :)

True, Dale, true. And I have and use Perfect Resize 7. I'm hoping the AF can handle hummingbirds because there are times it's spectacular to enlarge those little guys. Either way, I'm not counting on it as I use my 1DmkIII for them and am quite happy with the results in print.

wannabegood wrote in post #15186111 (external link)
You'll find it's color gradations and tonality to be superb, shoot it, print it, check it out for yoursef! 20x30 looks fantastic on canvas, have yet to print a poster sized glossy but need to do that.

I'm doing 20x30s on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag 308gsm from select 1DmkIII images and they are fantastic, so I can only imagine. If I do crop heavily (I don't often), I generally cannot print that large, so there are limitations to the 10.1mp files of the 1DmkIII. It'll be interesting to see if the 1DsmkII can keep up with the mkIII on hummingbirds. Obviously not on the fps, but the ST-E2 can't do that either so I'm thinking there just might be a way to get it done...AND I have a client looking for a 30x45 on canvas...Hmmm...

wannabegood wrote in post #15186111 (external link)
If you plan on using it heavily, you might want to look at the battery situ. I bought a used AC/DC adapter body and stripped it, plugging it in to a hi capacity Li-ion pack that sits on my belt for several days worth of shooting. This cost me about $20 more than a new Canon battery from B&H and doesn't self discharge, is ready when I am. I posted some pics earlier in this discussion...will look backward and let you know where that is if you're interested.

Now that I'm mostly retired, I don't anticipate heavy usage on the order of, say, a wedding. If the body works out for hummingbirds which is a dawn to dusk gig, I'll use the DC coupler since I shoot off of a tripod and don't move much for that. Still, it's good to know and I'm pretty handy with a soldering iron, so thanks!

wannabegood wrote in post #15186111 (external link)
Enjoy!

You bet. :)

Twoshadows, the pics I posted from the battery conversion are on post 9863 in the first thread....https://photography-on-the.net …ead.php?t=60907​8&page=658 . Definately worth doing if you plan on using it a lot.

I hear ya Manish, the 1DX looks very good indeed! Might have to play the lottery once to get me one ;)

Awesome. You da best!

Holy cr@p! Thanks again Dale. Looking forward to getting the body, but have to wait for the city of NY to let B&H into their warehouse, lol.

No kidding. Brought some life back to me, lol.

Dale, do you find the outer focus points better on the 1DsII than the 5DII? I mean, significantly so?

^^I hear ya, Butch. Kinda sad and happy at the same time. Won't be soon till I get my new cam., so, for now I'll be using the wife's 5D for a bit when I need to. Still deciding what to get, for the future.

Any ideas?

The 1DsMkIII's are coming down in price now. Seen a few in my area for sale from $2200 up to around $3K.

That would get you live view, 14 bit depth images and micro adjust for your lenses. Just no high ISO friendliness...if you even need that?

If I was to switch, and I'm not, that's what I'd do.

Nice glam pic there too! ;)

Cheers!

Thanks Jeff. I thought about a 3, but, not sold on that one. I'd like to try the video aspect of things, which the 3 doesn't have, otherwise I'd do just that. ;)

Yeah Ian, I do. I have had the 5DII for years and never used AI Servo. Now I'm finding AI Servo to be amazing, especially with the 100L Macro. Handheld macro's of budding tree's and flowers and the wind is almost ceaseless here! I really don't expect you to have any issues with your hummingbirds, will be interesting to see what you get.

Manish, a 1DsIII + a 5DII for video? Still several thou cheaper than a 1DX. But then it's not adding up to a 1DX. Never mind.

I do miss MicroAdjust a little though as my 70-200 2.8 IS doesn't seem to be spot on when on my 1DsII. Y'all think I should send them in to CPS for cleaning and calibration? Never used the service before but am Gold member.

And LiveView. But I just turn to my 5 2 for LiveView macro needs, no prob.

Thought about that too, Dale. But, having two bodies is just too much to handle when I shoot by myself. It would be a pain, honestly.

I even thought of switching to Nikon, for a split second, till I realized that I have way too much glass to make that switch. Plus, some of their lenses are expensive with regard to their Canon counterparts.

Sony just doesn't do it for me...even though some might say it's decent...I'm just not sold on them. And all the medium format digitals are just way out of my price range.

^^ Oh my, Jeff this is cool....I too had one back in the early 90's and replaced after a couple of years when the laser disc came out then the Mini-Disc. Would you happen to have an MD portable player/Disc..? That was our Ipod back then...have to carry a few discs with your selected playlist while out running. Would be cool if someone has a beeper too hehehe...:)
