| p.2 #17 · Does anyone use the Canon 1D Mk IV for Landscape/Scenic photography? |
Thanks for the very thorough, and excellent feedback, gdanmitchell. I truly appreciate your time, and input.
I realize that a full frame body, such as the 1Ds Mk III, or 5D Mk III would be more suitable for landscape photography, and I will admit that there is a touch of gear lust flowing through my veins...I'm sure there's a little of that in all of us. (If anyone says there isn't, they're LYING!! !)
That being said, I know that if I'd "settle" for a 5D Mk III, or a 1Ds Mk III, I'd always be questioning my decision, and likely still wanting a body with a higher FPS rate. A 1D Mk IV.
Yeah a 1Dx would be awesome, but financially, a 1D Mk IV and a used EF 300mm f/2.8L I.S. is much more feasible, and makes more sense at this time...or when I'm ready to purchase.
I love the feel of the 1D/1Ds series bodies, and that is what I want.
To be honest, the landscape photos I've seen posted here, on P.O.T.N., and on Flickr taken with the 1D Mk IV have been excellent. I have no doubts that I would be very pleased with the results.
Heck I've enlarged photos taken with my Canon A2 film camera on Velvia 50 film up to 24x36 and they look great. (I'm talking fine art prints), so I'm sure I'll be completely happy with the prints from the 1D Mk IV.
I would love to see more landscape images from the 1DX, esp images with bold, vibrant, rich, brilliant, bright, colors. I'd actually like to see more images of any type from the 1Dx with bold, rich, vibrant, brilliant, eye popping colors!
