p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · 1 D IIN vs. 1 D III for HS basketball



I currently shoot high school basketball with a 1D Mark IIN. I was considering moving to the 1D Mark III, since the Mark IV is out of the budget.

I tried a search for just these two bodies, but didn't find much.

Has anyone had experience with these two bodies for indoor sports that they would like to share?

Thanks.

You will benefit from a nice high ISO performance gain on the 1DIII, probably worth it for you. Ergonomics are better, but not a big deal. I have both cameras and love both of them.

And I forgot to mention the battery on the 1DIII is just ridiculous...

iso on the mk3 has the edge and might get you a extra stop or two. good luck, both are winners.

Agree with the others. The ISO advantage of the III was definitely worth the upgrade to me for the gyms I shoot in with ambient (f2 1/640 @3200) light.

I moved from IIN to III and didn't look back. The IIN is an incredible body. Very capable. But find the III to be better in just about every way. At least 1 stop better ISO performance, better menu/interface system, better LCD, etc. Increase in battery life is very noticeable. I get 3x the number of shots with the smaller and lighter batteries.

1d3 represents one of the best used values out there.

I just did a search on eBay, and there are 22 1D mark III bodies listed right now.

Absolutely. It's a better camera in every way than the 1D II(N) IMO.
