Are there any photographers who regularly use the 1D4 for portraits/weddings? I see the value of this camera for sports and wildlife photography, but I would love to see the work of photographers who also use it for portraits. Thanks.

I've been wondering about this too. The operating range is only -1 EV compared to the 5D3 -2 EV and the crazy 6D and 7D2 -3EV, however, how this really translates into real world application is anyones guess.

It was this question that had me thinking about Nikon.

I still use a 1D4 as my main body - most of the work on my websites have been taken with it:

Really great work there. It's horrible actually. If you're selling a 5D3 these days, it's a lot less than what a used 1DIV goes for, however, if you want to buy a used 5D3 it's more expensive than a used 1DIV.

The 1DIV works for me because i'm mainly sports and photojourno with a couple of weddings a year. I'm glad to see it's a good all rounder.

Cheers

It's my secondary body (1D4) for weddings and event photography... I'd say my dual comb is a 1Ds3/24-70L and 1D4/135L, for the most part... I may switch the 135L for a 70-200 2.8L IS if needed for extra reach...

Yeah, those Belted Kingfisher shots are outstanding. Some of the best I've seen. I can hear her chatter in the second image.

I haven't been bird hunting lately, but I have been exercising the 1D4 a bit. I was having some focusing issues and had to send to Canon and I think it's ok now.

Thanks Rai33, airbutchie and Paulstw: beautiful images; and for the information on wedding photography. I do struggle at times with the tonal range of the 1d4 for outside wedding work and was curious as to how others might be using the 1d4 for portrait work in higher light contrasts.

I find that the 1DIV is a great all round camera.


Use Canon 10D, 40D, 1D Mk1, 2 & Mk4 plus a 1Ds and 5D Mk2. Canon lenses (fav 24-105 f4L). Nikon D2HS and Fuji X Pro 1 & 2. Love um all :lol:

I absolutely agree and I love mine. I really wish Canon kept this sensor size. It suits me perfectly.
