Excerpt: Welcome to real film, digitally. Incredible. This is a film camera that it's negative is a digital chip. I have always shot APS-c and never felt it ever matched my 35mm film.. I cannot believe I waited so long. It has restored my photography back to my normal. It looks like film.. really.
Excerpt: This is my favorite camera, give sharp, colorful and pleasant images, perform very ell, quick response, easy conrtols (subjetive if yore an Nikon or Sony user ;)) is not an action camera, i mean, if you search a camera for sports the new Canon EOS 1DX, Nikon D4s or the Canon EOS 1D Mark III are more...

Excerpt: if you are looking to film anying upscale like a small movie, youtube skit ect this is the camera for you, however to obtain any good footage you will need a good lens upward of $1000 otherwise you are not using the camera to it's full potential.
Excerpt: Having owned all the 1Ds and D bodies (still own the 1Ds2 and 3), I was disappointed that it was not significantly better than the Mk2. As far as my 2 cameras are concerned, the Mk2 has much, much less noise in the shadow areas. I only shoot at 100 ISO.
Summary: The ultimate purpose for a camera is to take photos. No camera except perhaps the Canon 5D II or a comparable Nikon or Sony DSLR will take better photos in more situations than the 1Ds III. No other kind of camera will do as much as well.
Summary: I've had this camera for several weeks now and have been consistently been amazed by its capabilities. The image quality is extraordinary. I've been using it with a Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Ultra Wide Angle Zoom Lens and have yet to be disappointed.
Summary: Compare the 1D vs the 1Ds focus point layouts and you'll see that the perimeter points of the full frame 1Ds aren't far enough from the center to be of much use. 1D Mark 4 [...] 1Ds Mark 3 [...] The full frame 5D models have the same flaw.
