What I can you is that the cost of repairing a 1D Classic is very close to what they are worth. My Father-in-Law thinks I am mad to get it repaired!

Yeah, I don't buy that excuse though...if you buy another used body, you're taking on the same level of risk again! You could end up buying a string of bodies and have all of them fail (remember failures are statistically random, but the chance goes up as cameras age). At least by fixing your camera, you increase the probability that it will last into the future, because of the new components and maintenance performed on the systems. It's actually less risky with a good repair shop to repair than to purchase another used body. I just went through the same thing with several Nikon bodies. And within the next 5 months, Nikon is going to stop supplying parts to independent repair shops...this makes me want to get into Canon as soon as possible.

Everyone, check out this thread on the 1D at dpreview: http://forums.dpreview​.com …orum=1032&threa​d=40499826 (external link)

I have found the 1D to be more then enough camera for me, in fact I am thinking of getting a second body. The thing is you need to frame your picture the way you want it, not much crop room in PP and you need to hit the exposure right. THis old work horse still takes a great picture!

You think the same way as I do :lol: & I also have form with this! 4 Years ago my Motorcycle, which was already 14 years old, needed major Engine Surgery. I had that done as well despite it costing every penny the Bike was worth.

Again, I can only repeat what I have been told by both an Authorized & an Independant UK Repairers. That is that in the UK at least, Parts are available. I will be able to give a more definite statement when I get my 1D classic back, if it comes back working then Parts are available, if all I get is a "Sorry but...." then they arn't. It took them 3 weeks to give me a quote, I only gave the go-ahead last week so I don't expect it back anytime soon! I will post on this Thread when I get it back.

I would suggest contacting Canon themselves, some Authorized Repairers & some Independant Repairers in your own Country to see if you can find out anymore.

A final point is that, just because Nikon decide not to sell Parts to the Independants anymore, this may not stop the Authorized Repariers acting as intermediaries & selling the Parts on for a Profit. Again going back to Motorcycles, my local Independant Bike Shop had to use this route to get Parts for some Bikes.

Thinking of picking one up as a sports body to compliment my 5d II, and the 1/500th flash sync is amazingly useful for me. Anyone know a good price to be paying for a body/batteries?

Good condition should be between $300-450

Make sure you get the charger, too. The OEM charger sells for as much as the camera itself does, and the aftermarket options are unreliable, at best.

As for a 1D that includes a battery, take a look over at Keh and see what's in-stock. No matter what, you should plan to ditch any OEM Canon battery that it comes with. Replace it with a Lenmar brand battery, easily available from Amazon. You'll be very, very happy you did.

I bought a lenmar when I had my 1d II and they were excellent. I just found a mint body, with no charger, and went to look to find a spare. I'll definitely be buying a bundle now ;)

oh, anyone using one of these bad boys around 1/500th for flash syncing, what wireless triggers do you use? I'm wondering if RF603's can handle it, but will probably go cybersyncs.

I think Skyports will do 1/1000 sync. The Buff Cybercommander will do 1/2500, but I'm not sure about the normal cybersyncs.

As for the RF602 or 603, I'm not really sure. I'd have to look at the paperwork at home.

Cybersyncs will do at least 1/800 . I might have got 1/1000 when I ran my test, but it was a while ago, and my memory isn't what it use to be;)
