Wow so good to see people still using the old girl! I loved mine but it suffered a nursery rhyme ending. Apparently a large set of concrete stairs is on the limit of abuse a 1D will take. Amazing it still turned on but LCD cracked and the chasis was stuffed.

Its not flash image, but this was my first attempt at shooting drifting in NZ.

Still miss the small files but not the poor battery life! Even have the charger still.

Keep that charger - it's worth as much as the body is, most of the time.

Although it will never be as efficient as the newer bodies, the battery life really is dramatically improved by using Lenmar batteries versus the OEM units.

I really have been wanting to take it out and stretch its legs a bit lately, but I usually use it to shoot dogs, and both of mine are pretty gimpy right now, so pretty much all shooting is on hold while I take care of them.

Has anyone shot any decent nightscape photos with the 1Dc? I've noticed things tend to get blotchy and stuff, dunno if it's because of the small mp size that clumps things together. I did overexpose this one a tiny bit, but I don't think it would've helped if I exposed it just right.

Gotta do what I did... mod the battery pack up with Eneloops. OHOHOHO.

I've used it for 3 weeks now, twice a week, 100ish photos every night at the club, camera turns on/auto 1min off whenever depending how long I take between shots , and it's still shows a full charge.

I bought a 2000mah battery off ebay for $25. I cycled it a few times, took it out this weekend for the club. At the end of the night, the battery was low to empty.
Generic china cells FTL.

I had a lenmar pack. It came with the 1D when I bought it used from the 2nd owner. It only lasted 100 photos of a night of club use, which made me mod the pack with Eneloops.

Interesting, I'd give the Eneloops a try but I know nothing about wiring. Luckily I have a lenmar battery that lasts like 200% longer than my first lenmar

I am surprised no one else has jumped in here on this. The 1Dc has a known issue with long exposures. The CCD gets hot and that effects the picture. You can get blotchy spots and actual lines through the picture. The most common effect is you get a Purple upper corners. The longer the exposure the worse it gets. I have not done a any long exposure shots with mine so I have no idea how long of an exposure you can get before all this starts to happen. I would think to an extent every camera would be az little different.

Lol Steve, I've considered giving that a shot with my Brillant, but it's a little awkward to try to aim an SLR down the throat of a TLR, at least for me. Of course, the VF lens on a Brillant is horrible anyway...

Here is a Night shot taken at Iso 100, F11, 70 seconds.
I did use some NR. to remove some hot spots, and long exposure NR. settng on the 1D was on.
I tried to resize this pic to fit the posting requirements without stripping the Exif., but did anyway.
You can take night shots with the 1D, but the limitations are documented throughout this thread.
Anyone buying the camera should be savvy enough to read the thread from beginning to end and make a decision then whether the cam will work for you.
That's what I did, and haven't been surprised by anything, except what a great camera it still is despite the negatives.;)

Ps-the lights in the sky near the highrise are coming from Grouse Mountain Ski hill, they are not hot spots...
