Can anyone confirm that the 1DmkIV is worth the price jump? A lot people claim that the 1DmkIII is the most bang for your buck with canon right now.

Tough call. I'd love to have one, but for the $1200 price difference, I need to keep focusing on my next glass purchase... as I'm looking for ~$3500...

Can't imagine that stepping up from a 1D3 to a 1D4 is going to make much difference to most. You can make some pretty large prints from a 10mp file and I don't really see any other significant advantage in the Mk IV. It does give you a little more leeway in cropping though.

There's also the much brighter rear LCD screen, video capabilities, the ability to use UDMA CF cards...

Not denouncing the 1D Mk III by any means, but there are some advantages to the 1D Mk IV.

Ok, the brighter screen would be nice. I would say the dark screen is my biggest complaint and I use a Hoodloupe. The thing with the UDMA cards is a moot point as far as I can see. If you don't have the larger file size you don't need the faster cards. I used Transcend 600x cards in my 1D3 and they work fine though obviously at a slower write speed. Still, I've never missed a shot while waiting for the buffer to clear. Video certainly depends on the user. I don't even know how to record a video with my 5D2 or 7D so probably would be the same for the 1D4. I'm really just trying to convince myself that I don't need one.

Fair enough Bob. :lol: I wasn't trying to start something, or be argumentative...just pointing out a few more "advantages" of the Mk IV.

It's too bad Canon can't install a brighter screen into a Mk III body. That would be cool.

I would definitely use the video on the mkIV but I can just get a t2i used for when need video. As for the LCD I have not noticed it to be dark as have dialed my screen to be on point with my editing monitor. There is a slight difference but for exposure what I see is basically what I get. When chimping I am mostly just checking for focus accuracy.

I do love my mkIII, and I never plan to sell it.

Question for all you lucky 1D Mk III owners...what is the largest print (in inches x inches) you've had made from a 1D Mk III file? Thanks in advance.

The largest I've printed is 11x14 from Photoshop to my Epson 1430. They've come out really, really nice. I believe there are discussions in this thread where some claim to have made 20x30 prints. Probably would have to up-res to do that. Mpix says 16x20 is no problem for my 1D3 files; or at least they don't put a warning on them that the resolution is too small.

I have printed a 20x30 print with my rebel xs which is also a 10mp sensor. I have not been able to print anything from my 1D. The print from the xs was still amazing and once behind glass and you step back away from it the print looks beautiful. You don't watch a 60" tv from 1 foot away, same with large prints.

EDIT: I did just have two 11x14 custom cutting boards made from images created from the 1D

EDIT EDIT: as longs as you understand the principals of resizing and saving in an optimal format for print (300 ppi/dpi resolution) and you are not going from a small file to a large file you will be fine. Always shoot large and scale down as that is the best way to not loose quality

I've got a 24x36 sitting in my office, of the Snowbirds- taken from a chase plane, and the image is stunning! If you have the right glass for the job, and don't need to crop heavily, 10.MP is more than enough.
