You'll probably find that it works, the early 1D bodies need two hands to operate them for certain things. To scroll, I think you have to hold down select (to the right of the screen) and then operate the wheel.

You need the manual to get the most out of the body. You can download them.

You're exactly right, that's what it was. Thank you! :)

Here you go. Read this cover to cover. Then go back and read it again. The 1DmkII has a terrific sensor, and is capable of stunning images with good glass. The body is also immensely configurable, and you can tweak it to your style of shooting. I loved my 1DmkII/IIns.

Lovely. Thank you for providing the link, I have a new reading material now.

Here's the most recent photo taken with my 1dmk2.. Taken with my sigma 24-70 EX DG Macro non-hsm.. This was handheld with natural lighting... It still impresses me how good this camera is for being an older camera. I thought i was gonna be disappointed with my old 1dc, but even at 4.x mp, it rocked. progression led me to the 1dmk2! :)

A little bit of the exif data:

They're not like milk.
They don't have a use by date.
Heaven forbid, I just bought a 20D a few weeks ago to have as a fourth body.

Yeah i fell into the whole "megapixel is king" theory when i first started out shooting a dslr. But i can say i have captured excellent images on both the 1dc and 1dmk2! I have seen the light, no pun intended! :)

I absolutely love my 1D2n...when I'm shooting with it.

In my case, one of its batteries stopped holding a charge and my other one doesn't exactly last all that long either. I've come to find out that Canon's NP-E3's cost a billion dollars and I've gone 0-2 with off brands (Pearstone's NP-E3s are trash).

I tried tethering the thing for some gigs and that's been a nightmare that required dual booting windows XP and spending many a night searching for xp firewire drivers for my too new for the 1d2n laptop.

Other than those things, it's been an imposing looking sucker that's just so much fun to use and its pictures still pop out all cute unless you're in a situation where you absolutely have to be strict on noise.

I just bought a 1D Mark II N a couple of weeks ago. They've gotten so cheap that I felt it was worth the gamble. I'm sort of amazed by how great it (still) is. Autofocus is a revelation after shooting with a 450D and a 60D, metering is spot-on, and I love the look of the photos it takes. Very rich and vivid. I'm keeping my 60D but haven't picked it up since getting the 1D.

I sold my mk ii n a couple of years back because I needed the money and bought a 40d. I was shooting landscapes mostly at the time and lugging it around up mountains was a pain in the backside, but despite my small hands and the ergonomics of it I still prefer them and found it it easier to shoot with compared to my 40D.

Unsurprisingly the 1d mk ii n still costs the same on ebay with a low shutter count as they did 2 years ago (600 euros) while the 40d is down to about 250 Euros from about 450 euros.

I really want to go FF but the only body in my budget would be a 5d and as I suck at focusing even my 40d on my 15 month old toddler I'm wondering if I should get another mk ii n, giving myself the wonderful focusing of the 1d series and an improved FOV / DOF at the same aperture compared to the 1.6 crop.

My primary subject is child portraiture / candids with some landscapes

I say "go for it!" If it doesn't work out you can get most, if not all, of your money back selling it.

Photos of your child are priceless. Do it!
