    I dont know why people are always shocked at the price when new pro SLR
    bodies are released... it's cheaper than the 1D was when it was released.

    Shouldn't that be "Is it really such a huge turn on ?"

    Or should I start to worry more about you Miro ?

    Perhaps read more english literature ! Then you may distinguish the marks of
    English from each other ?

    well, i am definately turned on, I want one, but......there is just that
    little problem with that funny $sign and the numbers following it, they are
    aweful big :)

    Sounds like a fantastic camera.

    it would really fit nicely in my bag :)

    wiping of the drool...

    sweet dreams

    This is where I draw the line. A full frame sensor is pretty impressive no
    matter what the resolution. 4Mp, 8Mp, 11Mp. In all honesty I dont think I
    would rarely exceed 4Mp capability. The higher spec clearly applies to
    someone else and that persons shooting needs.

    I am looking for the 1D, the first one - that is a camera that fits all my
    needs.

    I'd probably only put up with the low res of the 1D if it had a
    full-frame sensor.

    It's closer, though. It's 1.3x rather than 1.6x, but it's a CCD too, not
    a CMOS. The 1D mark II is the same sized sensor, but it's CMOS.

    Also, I didnt know the 300D has an instant review, rather than that
    annoying approximation, then final image review that the 10D, D60 and
    D30 does. I find that soooo annoying when I'm trying to review a set of
    pics!

    Chimping isn't what I do best. Review is menial without my large PC screen.

  15. I chimp... but not so much for the image, but the histogram.... for that the
    LCD will do just fine.

    Yup, and of course, proper detailed review is only possible on a larger
    screen. But for the histogram, and for a quick review to see what you've
    got during the day, or to remind yourself of what you've taken, then I'd
    like the instant review. I dont even really know why it does that
    strange approximation thing before showing the final image. I guess it's
    just a slower processor in there now, rather than the newer faster one.
    Although, I think the 10D and 300D have the same processor in them.

    Scott.

  17. It's so you can do a quick fly through the find the image you are after,
    rather than wait for the higher res one to load for each image.

    Ah, probably true. I was thinking about it the other way around - when
    they said the preview was immediate, as compared to
    aproximated-then-immediate, I was thinking that they had improved the
    speed at which it displays the picture, so you could still do the quick
    fly-through, but without the approximation first. Doh! Then that would
    be more annoying! But that explains why it would be like that on the
    300D but not the 10D.

    Scott.

    Miro,

    I think the EOS-1D is a fantastic camera, it is just so responsive that it
    blows you away, it did blow me away. However, I think that the details in
    the 1Ds is hard to beat, therefore I think the new 1DmkII is a great
    compromise between the two. If I had the cash, I wouldn't hesitate to get
    it, well either for that matter this is 3 cameras that has set the benchmark
    for the rest on the market.

    I hope you will enjoy the 1d when you get it!

    Henrik

    So now I need a histogram to tell me my light is stuffed ?
