Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III

Review Date: Feb 12, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Image quality: tone/latitude/detail/deep noiseless shadows. No colour median filter like Nikons. Viewfinder usable. sRaw. Liveview.
Cons:
Joystick can't select AF-point. No usable C-mode i.e. comprehensive settings memory. No AF in Liveview. No is 6400 setting. No white balance display on top-plate. No dedicated white-balance button. No auto iso. My first copy had a problem that looked like red fogging in the corners using high iso in low light on continuous drive. The big scroll wheel has just died on my second copy, after only 2 months.

It's a great camera - the best image quality currently available by some margin. I may have been unlucky with reliability.
