Reviews and Problems with Canon EOS-1D (old model)
Showing 1-10 of 26
Great camera but Wi-Fi and GPS not included.
13 March 2013
Summary: I own the Canon EOS1D-X, the Canon 1D Mk IV, and the 5D Mk III, and II. As much as I love this camera, the fact remains that I look at cameras that were put out soon after that had Wi-Fi and/or GPS capabilities built in. Simply, this is inexcusable on a camera carrying this price tag. And I often find myself in wildlife situations grabbing for the 5D III so I can get a 22 MP snap instead of the 1-D X's 18MP. Another shortcoming.
Summary: This camera is amazing - 6400 ISO is a breeze. Very fast! Only downfall is I believe my copy is slightly soft on focusing. I've tried AF adjustments and other lenses and its not as clear as the D3s I owned but otherwise a great camera!
Summary: Canon EOS 1Dx review 9-23-2012 These are just my opinions. You can love or hate them, I don't care. I do like my 1Dx. I consider myself to be an advanced amateur or semi-pro photographer. I do sell a few photos but not enough to make a living. This is my first impressions of the 1Dx after about two weeks of shooting with it. It is heavier than my old EOS Mark III. The Mark III weighs 40 ounces where as the 1Dx weighs 54 ounces on my postal scale.
Summary: I've been a Canon shooter ever since I went digital 10 years ago. My progression through Canon's DSLR line up has been the D30, 10D, 1DmkII, 5DmkII, 5DmkIII and now the 1Dx. I mainly shoot high school football which, if you don't know, is mainly played at night in about the worst lighting you should ask a camera to shoot action sports in. My typical exposure settings of 1/500 sec @ F2.8 meant my ISO would range between 2500 to 6400 depending on the field and location.
Summary: While this is an older Canon "Prosumer" body, it's actually stronger in image quality than the 50D and a more robust professional body than the 60D. The image quality and low light performance of this camera is great. I would recommend this body to anyone who's advanced past the Rebel line of beginner cameras, but doesn't have the cash to afford a 7D or 5D. The only drawback for this camera vs. the 50D is the lower resolution LCD, but that doesn't effect picture quality.
Summary: The EOS 30D replaced Canon's previous 'winner' the much acclaimed EOS 20D. It has some nice upgrades and although still offering 'only' 8.2 Mpixel produces spectacular prints right up to 16x24 and beyond. Nice upgrades include a colored menu display and larger rear screen LED display in addition to a faster continuous shooting ability. Probably well worth the $100 or so dollars (moore than the 20D) these cameras fetch uswed and of course they tend to be newer!
Summary: The Canon 10D was my first digital SLR. I have always had A soft spot for it. Not only because it was my first but also because it takes great pictures. When you hold the 10D in your hand it feels very rugged and strong. There A perfect choice for someone who wants to seriously get into photography and not spend a ridiculous amount of money. I am writing this on 11/20/2010 and both my 10D's work great and are 10 or more years old.
Summary: I currently own two 1D Mark II's and a 1D but after renting a 5D for an assignment I fell in love with full frame. Unfortunately, I have little spare money. The file the 1DS produces is outstanding. I much prefer the focusing system over the 5D and I like the ease of setup for back button focus. I use the voice recorder a lot so this is another advantage over the 5D.
Summary: I would say if you are getting into photography and want a good camera to start off with, get the Canon 30D. It's easy to use. Don't be fooled by the buttons. Read the manual!!! But basically it's just a matter of technique. It's a solid camera, using a Compact Flash (CF) card. Cleaning it is very simple. And the on screen display, is very easy & comfortable to navigate through. This camera can use the higher L-series line of Canon lenses, too. A huge plus.
Summary: Best full frame camera for around 1k. Gets best results with cheaper lenses that your Mark II cannot achieve...due to higher resolution of 21 mps. Also achieves low light photography with much less noise. The camera auto-focuses crisp and fast. LCD is not that great, but your images will surprise you when you look at them on your computer.
