Canon EOS 1Ds

21Ds
Review Date: Mar 5, 2013 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $575.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: color rendering, build and overall value
Cons:
none.

This camera is famous for the way is renders color--a great studio camera, and a brilliant choice for fine art photography.

Makes no sense to criticize this camera for features it lacks since there are other cameras for shooters who need a higher frame rate.

The used copy I bought has less than 32K actuations, does not have a mark on it, and after a sensor cleaning, it is like new.

It's a keeper they will have to pry from my cold, dead fingers.


 
Canon EOS 1Ds Mark II

1dsmarkii
Review Date: Feb 11, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $2,000.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: IQ, AF, gorgeous-to-kill-for images
Cons:
none

Got mine yesterday, and after a brief shoot, I understand the excitement. If you can use "L" glass, the 1DS Mark II can give you images of extraordinary beauty, exquisite color and extraordinary detail.

The faster cameras with more features are arguably less important for the budget-minded person looking for a camera that simply produces superb images.

Very little manipulation required in post-processing if you can get it right in camera. Has to be one of the best values and quite possibly the last camera most people will ever need.
