I'm thinking of dipping my toes in to the 1 series waters by purchasing a 1D classic from Adorama. I'm concerned on whether or not the camera will play nice with my Macs. I'm on the latest version of Leopard (10.5.8). No use getting the camera if I can't connect in order to make setting and user changes. Anyone out there using a 1D classic and a Mac running Leopard?

I've read through that thread and did a search and couldn't find anything real definitive on whether or not the classic will work with os x. Figured if I posted a new thread it would be more likely to be noticed.

No reason why it shouldn't.

I didn't mean for you to read through it,,, I meant maybe you should post the question there since pretty much every one on that board owns your camera and I am sure some of them have macs.

I own a 1D and getting the software to work with Vista was a nightmare... I don't think I ever really needed it though, except maybe to change the username of the camera... I just read the raw pics right off a card reader and edit everything in CS4.

Mine works with both Tiger (10.4.11) and Snow Leopard (10.6.3). But you got to have an old version of the software. It was called EOS Viewer Utility. The App will allow you to access and modify the personal function;, name, jpeg tone curves...

I'm in the same boat, but with Windows 7, had to install XP on another computer to do a grand total of change the name on the computer. Since then I've just used a card reader.

I have no problems using a card reader for picture downloads. I'm concerned because I understand that you need direct connect to change camera settings. Correct me if I'm wrong on this.

I have a 1D and I've never used the software. You can adjust custom functions (eg back button focus) in the camera like any other. The only thing I can think of is maybe custom tone curves for JPEGs, not an issue if you shoot RAW (you can fit a bunch of 4MP RAWs on your old "small" CF cards). What are you thinking of exactly?

If you have bad luck with your Adorama model PM me I've got one we might be able work out a deal on. Enjoy :)

I use the 1d Mark IIn with my MacBook Pro and all work fine. I can't speak for earlier models of the 1 series.

Just keep in mind that EOS Utility requires an available Firewire port on the 1d Mark I and II cameras. The USB port on the 1d Mark I and II is used only to transfer files to the computer.
