Canon 5D MarkIII… enh. I miss my 1ds MarkIII. By Chris Kilkus

with one comment


I’ve owned the Canon 5D series of cameras since their introduction. It was a back up for my 1ds MarkII and later 1ds MarkIII. And it was also a nice camera to have for just playing around or going on vacation… compact and lightweight, but still with a full frame sensor. When the MarkII was introduced it also took over as my main motion camera. But the 1ds MarkIII was the ideal camera for my fashion and advertising photography.

So I was really looking forward to a new version of the 1ds coming out with hopefully a larger buffer and a faster tether connection that would give me the ability to shoot even quicker.. an important part of capturing the energetic style of lifestyle and fashion photography that I do. And a few more megapixels would have been nice too since some ad clients get nervous about not having enough information to work with.  What I really wanted was for the 1ds MarkIII to up it’s game and go after the medium format digital back market, but in the fast and compact package of DSLR.

Well, what a let down when the 1dx was introduced! I wrote a blog post here about my feelings on the new camera…..
