Here are a few I took today with the 70-200 f4 L. My mother has a new Shetland Sheepdog puppy, so I reckoned it would make a good test. Lighting is just a 580 EXII bounced off the ceiling.

I found this thread/forum while poking around the net looking for some full size sample 1ds mkii images.

I'm currently using a 1ds (with 400d backup) for all my commercial/wedding/por​trait work.
I'd been lusting after a 1 series body for years and years and it was only when I moved to the UK that I could afford to get one.

I juts love the size and balance of the baby, the inbuilt portrait grip is something I couldn't live without and once you get to know how to use it properly, what you can and can't do it will produce awesome shots. But then again, if you're reading this thread you most likely know this already :D

I didn't like the noise when I first got it, but that was because I was used to noiseless (relatively speaking) images and hadn't shot film for years. Now I've run it up and down to 800 I can say that it feels a bit like TMZ 3200 - if you like the noise, it's handled beautifully and gives the image a film like quality.

See how I jumped right into the noise issue there?

Well, it seems like most people considering this body will use 'poor noise' as a con rather than a pro.
TBH, I felt that way to start with, but once you remember that high ISO is supposed to be atmospheric then you can see what a plus the noise is on a 1ds. Especially in black and white images.

Down at 50/100 it produces outstanding images that are wickedly sharp, and up around 400/640/800 it transmogrifies into an old school BW classic filmstock.

Glad I found this thread - now I don't feel like an outcast in the pro world for using a 1ds instead of jumping on the 'must upgrade always' bandwagon a lot of other pros are on.

I love my 1ds, and I love my grain.

Looking to get either a gently used 40d or an original 1ds. Any opinions? The 40d has a better LCD which I think will help make better decisions in the field. Any advantages to the 1ds other than full frame?

Thanks

You learn that relying on the screen is a fools mission. Screens lie, use the histogram and be done with it. The 1ds is built better...PERIOD. It's weather proof, and has almost infinite customization. I'd sooner take a 1ds into "the field" than a 40d :)

I may be selling mine soon, if you're interested.

I had 40d and I was unable to determine if the shot was in focus using LCD. So I wouldn't count on LCD.
AF in 1ds is big advantage over 40d.

PS I sold my 40d and keep 1d and I'm happy :)

I got my 40d 18 months ago and my 1D, 6 months ago. I usually pick up the 1D first. I've shot inside a boat at 800 and liked the result.
Often the 1D's noise will contribute to the effect i'm trying to reach with the picture. B&W pictures with noise brings me back to my film days.
My next purchase should be a 1DS Mk1. My only gripes; the batteries and the screen. Would be nice to have a bigger screen and zoom.
I've even tough of selling my 40d and getting a 1DS to go with the 1D.
Get the 1DS!

When I first got my 1DS, I still had one of my 20D bodies and the 50D. Within a few weeks both the 20 and 50 were gone. I never picked them up anymore. In the absence of a one series, the xxD bodies are great, but once you have used a one series, you probably do not want to "go back". Flame suit on.....I know these comments will likely rile the faithful xxD users.

To re-iterate what others have said - the LCD, while it's nice to have and look at (my dad has a 40D), doesn't and shouldn't effect your shooting one iota.

Histogram is all you need - and really, you shouldn't even need that.

Film didn't come with a histogram, you had to rely on your knowledge and skill to get a correct exposure. (this is not a rant at the quoted poster BTW :D )

If you're undecided - put it this way. My dad loved his 40D till I let him hold my 1ds - and my baby only cost another 100quid than his 40D.

I just got done getting my new motherboard with firewire connection up and running with windows 7 upgrade :D and have got both my 1Ds and the 1D Mark II to be recognized in it and have used some of the info I've learn from both this thread and the 1D Mark II/11n thread to make changes to my personal settings :D .
Another reason to like my 1D Cameras .

My 40D has gone. I hadn't used it once since I got the 1Ds. The 40D has certain advantages that I still find occasionally useful - bigger buffer, faster at everything etc, but the 1Ds IQ blows it out of the water I'm afraid.

Next camera will be either a 1D3 or a 7D I think - probably the 1D3 as I like the ergonomics of the 1 body so much :)

Just bought a 35L so will produce a pic showing it with a more fitting lens than that 50 1.8 :D

Edit: Wrong thread! I posted the pic below in another thread and got the mickey taken for having the 50/1.8 on it...

The cheap little 50 gives a respectable account of itself on the 1Ds. Bloody lens snobs! :D

Munk....
....that b&w shot of the lake....perfect example of the "film-like" look that you can get out of this camera. Yet another reminder of how much I like the images from my own 1DS. Stick a 17-40 on and go on a walkabout with it. You'll have so much fun.....

Hey guys,
Thanks for the advice. Looks like I won't be getting a 40D. Although I love the xxD bodies I've used, I have a feeling that the 1d is the camera I need. It's the little things like being able to record an audio file to identify people in the photo and not having to add a grip for long lasting battery power. I also need a rugged body and the 1d series fits the bill. Thanks.

If you have not sold it already, how cheap is cheap ?
