Earlier I posted about my 5D and 1DIIn. I used both of those cameras heavily until they died a couple of years ago. That generation camera with the Digic II processor was always my favorite. There was something really special about the images it produced.

There's still one more pro camera from that generation, the 1DS II. Mine actually still works and I still use it semi-regularly as my "C" camera. Last I checked, the shutter count was around 220K. It's pretty beat up with lots of missing paint, but it still gets the job done.

Here are some of my favorite photos I've taken with the 1DS II.



Canon 1DsII, EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS | 155mm, f/2.8, 1/175, ISO 3200
The Singing Hoosiers by Scott Scheetz




Canon 1DsII, EF 85mm f/1.8 USM | 85mm, f/1.8, 1/80, ISO 3200
WT3P2731 by Scott Scheetz




Canon 1DsII, EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM | 85mm, f/1.2, 1/2000, ISO 100
WT3P6569 by Scott Scheetz





Canon 1DsII, EF 200mm f/1.8L USM | 200mm, f/1.8, 1/320, ISO 200
WT3P7682 by Scott Scheetz




Canon 1DsII, EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM | 16mm, f/8, 1/60, ISO 50
WT3P0581 by Scott Scheetz


Even though the camera is more suited for studio use, it really does quite well covering events. The small buffer of 10 raw files can be a bit frustrating, but it clears it relatively quickly. The 4fps is pretty slow compared to a lot of cameras, but you can still get some good "action" photos with it!



Canon 1DsII, Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 OS + 1.4 extender | 330mm, f/4, 1/1250, ISO 1600
WT3P9755 by Scott Scheetz


I think the biggest downside to this camera now is its dynamic range and high ISO performance when compared to modern cameras. The highlights clip a lot quicker than my 1DX & 5DIII. The 1DSII still looks pretty good at ISO 1600. It's "high" setting of 3200 starts to push it's usability.

This photo was taken at 3200 and pushed to 6400 in post. The noise isn't too bad, but the color depth definitely takes a hit. And yes, I love using my 24mm f/1.4 for close up portraits!



Canon 1DsII, EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM | 24mm, f/1.4, 1/125, ISO 3200 + 1 stop in post

I happened across this image while preparing a tribute to the 40th anniversary of the Indianapolis Colts Cheerleaders. I was their official "official" photographer from 1994 to 2006. For the majority of the years I used a Bronica ERTSi outfit.

This particular image was the 2005 squad captured on a Canon 1D Mkll. Not bad for a 7 megapixel camera. Lens was the Canon 28-70 f2.8. ISO 100...1/250 shutter....f10. Novatron 1500ws power pack with two light heads bounced into two umbrellas.

Cross posting in the People section....just because.

Always loved owls, and got the occasional hunting sequence even when I was younger.

WOW, some fantastic new additions especially the Owl shots. This is a pair shot with my 1Ds2 which I still use for stills often. They were at a RC event I was a bit late getting to but warned to get ready for a special guest as I was setting up my gear. She was coming to watch her just turned 8 grandson fly dad's big Viper Jet. I'm a friend of her son & grandson & she was kind enough to pose for a few photos with them & the plane. Young Christopher put in 2 perfect flights with near perfect textbook landings for her. Since then Christopher became the youngest pilot ever to fly a gas turbine model aircraft in the 35 year history of the Top Gun event held annually in Florida. It was his first time to compete on any level and he did well with a 14th place finish and no damage to dad's jet. Canada's current Governor General Mary Simon, her son Louis & grandson Christopher.

A pic from a few hours ago.

I've been using the 1DmkIV since 2010 and one advantage is that by spending so long with one camera, getting what I what from it doesn't require much thought. It has become pretty automatic.
The one thing I find amazing is that the original batteries still charge, last and behave like new. (at 13 years old)

The more I watch this thread, the more I think to hell with mirrorless.
The images are amazing. Well done everyone.

Can I ask what the shutter count is on your 1div please
I picked one up about a year ago (120k) and tbh I love using it, itís heavy but yet feels better than my 5diii and way way better than my recent RP.
Iím just curious as to what the shutters are known to go up to, I seldom ever use fast frame per second, usually Iím on servo single shot.

120K is just getting broken in. I've had them go over 500K. With that said, they can go at any time.

I honestly had no idea until you asked but you peaked my curiosity so I checked. 175,401 so far. Just looking at that number makes me consider how many rolls of film that is and how much the processing would have been from the Kodak lab.
