Canon EOS 1D

1D
Review Date: Jul 7, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $750.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: extremely cheap 2ndhand, crop factor 1.3, fabolous imagequality, dynamic range, fast autofocus, custom functions, it's a tank!
Cons:
noise @ ISO 1600 & 3200, no LCD display zoom

I got this baby 3 months now and it is absolutely fabolous! I was looking for a very good digital camera with at least a crop factor of 1.3 (or lower) and very good image tonality and dynamic range.. I never knew my budget allowed me to get this aggressive beast! I got it for 600,- (Netherlands) in mint condition with almost 50,000 clicks.

If you like to have lot's of useless megapixels (what's the last time you printed A2 ??) or other things that the marketeers are trying to make us think are needed, you can go to your local camerashop. If otherwise, go with the 1D and you won't regret it! The price won't be a barrier.

The one bad thing about it is the noise at high ISO's.. And it also seems different on the right side of the photographs... actually it seems worse on the right side.. I thought this should be said, but after all it's nothing to be afraid of... Still 10/10 !!
