Flawed focus point layout

Aaron Farrag, Amazon
15 April 2010
  • 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. Track moving subjects using a perimeter focus point, and you'll still have to throw away many pixels later cropping to a pleasing 2/3 composition.

  • Excerpt: The camera came new with two problems that should have been caught by proper QA/QC. Service of the camera has resulted in some problems not being fixed and new problems introduced. The automatic AF point selection (ring of fire mode) is basically useless. The camera's AF system will sometimes fail to achieve proper focus resulting in soft focus images.

Autofocus is inaccurate.

Paul E. Reddington "Spike", Amazon
14 March 2009
  • Summary: I have been a professional photographer since 1983 using Canon cameras (AE1, T90, EOS 1 and a Mamiya RZ 67. I Beta tested the Canon AF system with the 620 back in 1987 and on my recommendation changed the picture desk at the newspaper I was working form Nikon to Canon. Since then I have professionally used a EOS 620, 650, D30, (not 30D) 1D, 1DMk2 and my latest, the £6,000 1D Mk3. It's simply not up to scratch with the focus.

  • Excerpt: До этого пользовался 1Ds Mark II, 5D, 5D MII.
  • Pros: - Влагозащита - Эргономика - Быстрый автофокус - Двойной слот для карточек - Хороший автоББ
  • Cons: - Шумный на высоких ISO, уступает 5D Mark II на пару стопов - Ужасный экран, 230000 пикселей. Оценить получившийся снимок не получится - Как и все единички, достаточно тяжелый, в связке с зум-эльками превращается в снаряд из спортзала

  • Excerpt: Почитайте закон дифракции и интерференции света, будет полезно, особенно для тех кто считает, что чем больше пикселей тем камера круче и снимки качественней! Это далеко не так, все дело в размере пиксела.
  • Pros: Хорошая камера для профессионала, издательств, или фотолюбителей при деньгах. Размер матрицы соответствующий размеру кадра фотопленки 35мм. Удобство в управлении. Износостойкость.
  • Cons: Количество пикселей, их слишком много для такой матрицы.
