Pretty good man, not easy getting a steady shot at 1/10. Why ISO-400?

It was my first time shooting nightlife and was following a beginners guide but won't be shooting at iso 400 again... I tried 1600ISO which is the ideal with new cameras but on the 1D very Grainy I found the perfect ISO which is 800-1000 still a little noise but with software its fine

Heres a recent photo shoot at
f/4
iso 1000
1/4 shutter

Nice, Chris. You must have steady hands shooting at 1/4 and getting as little shake as you are.

The important thing with the 1D is that you have to nail exposure with the higher ISOs or it will band like crazy. The small files do clean up really well, especially at the typical resolutions a 4MP shot is viewed/printed.

This! Also make sure keep the in-camera noise reduction setting off, it makes it easily removable in LR3. A handstrap really helps too.

I figured out how to nail my long exposures in the camera, ( one of the reasons why I love digital photography) and took this one while shooting for my college newspaper. Believe i took this one with a 28 1.8 for 10 seconds at 2.8. If you look closely, you can see the moon about to dip behind a pole.

Just keep looking, they are out there!

To be more serious, here are my thoughts:-
1: Don't pay over the odds. I have seen some Photographic Retailers wanting £400 for them which is way too much in my book. I would recommend £300 tops.
2: Don't get obsessed by a Low Shutter Count. I agree with a therory that regular use is better for a 1Dc than being sat on a shelf gathering Dust. I have no proof of this, but there have been a few Posts of 1Dc's with LSC's going wrong very shortly after purchase & others with 200,000+ Clicks still going strong.
3: When you have bought one, Don't Drop it! I write from experience as mine is at the Repairers at the moment:oops:.
4: Have fun with your 1Dc, they were built as ideal Sports Photography Cameras & can still do that job in fine style!

As a final note, I am sure you will already know this, but the 1Dc is not compatible with EF-S Lenses.

Thanks, I was wondering what sort of prices I'd be looking at. Anything in particular beyond the usual 'check everything works' tests that I should be looking for?

Geniune Canon NC-E2 Battery Chargers change hands for about the same as a 1Dc & aftermarket replacements have a poor reputation so only buy a 1Dc compete with the Genuine Charger.

From personnal experience, check that the Firewire Port works. My 1Dc worked fine in all "operational" functions (until I dropped it anyway). As my PC didn't have a Firewire Port it took me a while to get round to connecting it to a PC, which is when I discovered that it didn't work. As a Previous owner had entered his name in the Camera & the way to change it is via Firewire that was a Pain as all of my RAW Shots had his name on them!

The 1Dc uses the Fat16 File system which has an upper limit of 2Gb, 4Gb cards will be formatted in Camera as 2Gb, larger than 4Gb may not work at all. Earlier in this Thread was a guide on how a 4Gb Card could be formatted on a PC to use all it's available capacity, but having extremely limited Computer literacy myself I couldn't make much out of it. If you are Computer Literate look it up!

Hmm, thanks. I don't have firewire either, so I'll have to get an adapter or something. Or a better computer :D
The card situation should be OK, I've got a few 2gb cards knocking around...

I use a USB Card Reader to upload my 1Dc Photo's, which works fine. The Firewire Issue was really only relevant due to the fact I was unable to erase the previous owners Name, which would have been a 1-use issue then back to using the USB Reader had the Firewire Port worked! The answer was infront of me every time I visited my Parents as Their PC has Firewire, but by the time I noticed that & tried it I had owned my 1Dc for over a year! When I found it wouldn't work I asked around my friends & got to try another PC with Firewire & several Leads which confirmed that it was the Camera's Port which didn't work.

If you can get authorized access to a Firewire equiped PC then I would suggest trying it to check that it works & make any adjustments you want, then just use a USB Card Reader to upload your Photo's after that.

You'll also need a PC using Windows XP or EARLIER, as some people have issues with the Twain drivers working via Vista or 7.

I was able to change the name via Firewire using Vista, but I had to use the import feature of Photoshop to get into the camera. The connection crashes almost as soon as you try to do anything, but it was good enough to change the copyright name.

As for photos, I'd really suggest just pulling the card out and using a USB reader if you don't have one built in.

Yeah, I use a card reader with my 50D anyway. Apart from changing the name I've never connected the camera itself to my computer!
Interesting that you have to use XP or earlier - not a problem for me as my school system runs XP, though.
How do you find the 1.3x crop? Noticeable when coming down from a 1.6x body?
