  • Summary: I love this camera. It is heavy duty and heavy but rugged, dependable, and takes great pictures. I shoot action sports and in particular HS football, it is awesome and I love it. So will you!

This one is much better.....so far

  • Summary: This is my second 1D Mark III. The first one I received from Amazon, although beyond the registration number from Canon that had problems, it didn't perform well. Out of 1236 test wildlife photos, only about 30 were in focus.

Better than expected, except shutter noise.

  • Summary: This is a hand-on impression and not a detailed review. I used the EOS 1D and the EOS 1d Mark IIN before. In addition, I also own a EOS 30D and a EOS 50D. The first good surprise is that this camera is NOT as heavy as you would expect from this bulky size.

The 1D Mark III is working great now!

  • Summary: I purchased the Canon 1D Mark III about 1 year ago from Amazon for $4300.00. I liked the feel of the camera and the battery worked great, but the images it took were nowhere near the quality they should have been.

The fix is in

P. wolff "half focus", Amazon
9 June 2008
  • Summary: After reading bad reviews on the focus problems with this camera I waited a while to pull the trigger. I shoot sports, equestrian (some indoors), and stage dance. I bought this camera for low light useage, and the superior focus speed. I have not been dissapointed.

great camera, few problems

G. Michael Murphy, Amazon
17 February 2008
  • Summary: Overall this camera is amazing. The only problem is the focus problems that are well documented elsewhere. The mirror fix and firmware upgrade from Canon helped, but there is still a tendency for focus to drift when shooting rapid fire.

A very good camera

ThomasN, Amazon
22 January 2008
  • Summary: I had semi-switched from Nikon to Canon with the purchase of this camera. Despite reports over focusing issues, I haven't had any real problems with it. The frame rate and high ISO on it is phenomenal.

EOS 1D - Great camera with exception of AI Servo

Richard in Toronto, Amazon
22 October 2007
  • Summary: SYNOPSIS I have had this camera for two months and LOVE it! The build quality, colour "truth", speed between frames, and ability to set custom features is remarkable. I am disappointed with the AI Servo reliability but relieved to see that there is a hardware fix.
