Bruce,
You will need either a wire or wireless remote trgger for your off camera flash. A canon OC cord will retain ETTL functionality, as will a couple of the wireless solutions.

Also the manual in pdf is available on the canonusa site if you can't get it from Mike.

Put some good glass on the 1Ds mrk I and you'll get some killer IQ.
About 85% crop I think.

Thank you Bruce_Bird :) That image is actually taken with my 400mm Sigma, that lens is just SO versatile.

Let me un-complicate it for you... Canon no longer service this model anymore. They might if they happen to have parts for it, but now they are refusing to take them in. Sell it before you're stuck with an antique. The 1Ds is also on the verge... go for Mark2 instead.

I spoke to canon in October specifically to ask about servicing the original 1d and they said that there are still servicing them and at this time had no intention of phasing out servicing them.

Bruce,
Yes the body is considered to be water and dust resistant, however you need to remember that not all Canon lenses are weather sealed, and further, some that are, need to have a filter on them to complete the weather resistant feature. I'll leave it to you do research which group your lenses fall into.

Since you're from Melbourne you'd probably be familiar with places such as Marysville. We visited that place during the snow season before the fires. It was snowing intermittently at that time and we went tobogganing. I wasn't the slightest bit worried about the camera.

I would expect the 1Ds to be every bit as weather resistant as the 1D, which I did use under wet conditions in a New Zealand trip and it was paired with a lens that is not weather resistant. Those were some really shabby weather conditions out there at Milford Sound but it didn't worry my camera at all.

My Dad probably took better photos than I did by being smart and ducking in and out of shelter while I stood out in the elements taking probably one photo every minute!

Love my 1Ds and the only reason I would upgrade is to get a camera with HD. It does exactly what I need it to do and I'll enjoy it until it dies.

Well, I don't know what the second image is because I can't see it, but the first image is just magnificent.
