I took some video. But I'm not sure how to display it - never done much with video and my PC is screaming at me just playing the files in Quicktime. :confused:

Very very good, how do you find the 5d2 overall vs the 1d3?
(is it worth trading for in a month or twos time.....)

Thanks.

You know what's interesting; I have all sorts of troubles getting my 1D Mark IIIs to focus on objects moving away - like those rear shots above.

The 5D mark II nailed it - even when using peripheral focus points.

The only negatives I could find:

  • A higher frame rate would sometimes be desirable.
  • Overall the camera doesn't feel as responsive - I found I had to re-tune my timing a little.
  • It rained quite heavily today and I was scared the camera might get damaged.
  • The AF-points would be nicer to be spread out just a bit more - but I am really only nit-picking here.
Things that weren't a problem at all:
  • AF - it just worked.
  • The buffer - probably due to the low frame rate, but I rarely hit the buffer (and I shot the entire event in RAW).
  • The form factor - nice and light.
  • Battery drain - no problem, and I did a bit of video capture and chimping today too.


What I really liked was the wider field of view on all my lenses - which allowed me to frame a bit looser (with all those MPs) to have options later, or to give greater subject isolation by shooting closer to the object for a given lens.

ohhhh man, I am really really starting to want to trade my beloved mark III for one of those :D
Did the camera hold up to the heavy rain, if so it will really really tempt me :D:D
and your work is definately crazy amazing :D, (btw whats an OC-E4 :D:D:D)
Also, (finally) who are you shooting for, yourself or the paper or something?

(I think I edit too much... :D)

How was the AF point spread vs the 1d3, and did the camera hold up to the heavy rain, if so it will really really tempt me :D:D

I was nervous when it rained. The camera got a little wet, but it kept working. I certainly don't have the same level of confidence in its durability as the 1-series.

AF points seemed narrower than the 1D Mark III - however with all those pixels I see it as just having the ability to frame a bit looser, which isn't a bad thing at times.

I was shooting for a rural newspaper group. An OC-E4 is just a cable for a flash.

Cheers.

trading a MarkIII for a 5D2? sorry i just dont see it.

nice christian, i too have issues with rear shots and tracking, coming to me no drama, going away drama, i just thought it was me.

if the 1Ds3 came down in price i think it would be perfect, a few guys are now using them, Horsburgh, Deeley.

nice to see the 5D2 out and about though, certainly makes for a good 2nd/3rd body get in the pits with the 85 @ f2 :P mmmm yumm
