Pros: Robust body like all 1D; M.A.F; battery life; high I.S.O, very good screen, although not at the level of the 1DX MkII; good dynamic range: in short, reliable.

Cons: I would say nothing considering the year of release, but still today I find it better than the vast majority of DSLRs

Opinion: Found used with about 50K shots. Aesthetically and functionally perfect. The crop factor makes it perfect for sports photo and theater photo. Photographing the essays of the various dance schools with girls starting from the age of three, having a multiplication factor of 1.3 is a boon. Ditto for youth football, where subjects are smaller than adults and having them bigger on the sensor is good thing. What about it? If you find one take it and you won't regret it!

Pros: shooting speed, ergonomics, focus, battery life.

Cons: I haven't found any at the moment.

Opinion: I've been looking for a used one in good condition for a long time. I joined it with a 1DS mk3 and a 5Dmk2. The 1DS is FF but much slower, this one is very fast and does not miss a beat. I tested it at a dragster race and all the shots were in focus, the sequence remains in full focus. It is definitely dated and I have not compared it with newer machines but I find it very valid both as AF and as ISO. I used it in the evening, for freehand shots and the result is great. I'm really happy with the purchase.

Pros: Value for money, shutter speed, image quality (in relation to sensor format), reliable autofocus system, good autonomy

Cons: Inability to adjust audio levels manually in movies, availability of problematic parts

Opinion: This is the latest EOS 1 produced with APS-H sensor, and has now been introduced to the market 10 years ago. The command arrangement is similar to the newer EOS 1, although the latter have a second duplicate multicontroller for vertical shooting, plus a few additional buttons: Unlike the previous 1d Mark III, the LCD screen has a resolution Dignified. On the 1DX and 1DX Mark II have improved the ergonomics of the grip, but the 1d mark IV still remains very well balanced, in my opinion. At the launch the 1d Mark IV was the EOS with the best image quality at high ISO, even exceeding the 5d Mark II, whose sensor had noise levels with fixed patterns much higher. Today, however, outclasses all the SLR/mirrorless EOS with APS-C sensor in this aspect: viewing the raw Files The difference is obvious. The EOS 1 have always been models dedicated to specialists, and the 1d Mark IV is in a particular way, because of the format of the sensor: for a systematic use of wide angle lenses may not be the best choice. The Autofocus system was, at the time, the best product from Canon: However 10 years are many, and today even products like the 80d offer an autofocus system that in some respects exceeds that of the 1d mark IV, particularly in low light conditions. However, under less critical lighting conditions, the AF system of the 1d mark IV is on average more stable in AI Servo. Part of the limits is also due to the computing power of the 1d mark IV, and this also limits the focus speed when using teleconvers (even for autofocus hardware limits). With The 1DX there was a definite qualitative leap, and with the 1DX Mark II the detachment has considerably increased. Conversely, it is true that the newer EOS 1 AF systems are more performance-intensive, but at the same time require much more user-side adjustments, to be exploited to the fullest, depending on what you photograph. In any case, the 1d Mark IV is still widely usable, side autofocus. Among other things, it is the only EOS to have the following function: It is possible to select two AF points at the same time (flanked horizontally), so as to increase the area sampled by the AF system. It's a pity that on the newer EOS 1 The thing has been lost, since in some cases it came back very useful. The shutter speed is 10 fps, and the camera supports CF cards UDMA 7: Unfortunately the camera is not compatible with SDXC cards, and therefore the speed of writing with SD is quite low. On the other hand, if you use the WFT-E2 II Wireless accessory, you can connect a compact memory device to the USB port (e.g. Lexar jumpdrive), so as to have the contemporary writing on three memory supports: Obviously the buffer is saturated quickly, but in some contexts it comes in handy. The 1d Mark IV was the second EOS SLR to allow video recording: The image quality is obviously lower than that of the current EOS 1, but it is still usable. The real problem is the impossibility of manually adjusting the audio levels, which forces you to use a preamplifier with "AGC disable" function, if you want to record the audio directly with the camera (and an external microphone, of course). The Curious fact is that Canon has added this feature on both the 7d and the 5d Mark II, via firmware updates, while the 1d Mark IV has been totally abandoned in that respect (although newer than those models). In Summary, the 1d Mark IV is a product in my opinion still valid, but personally I would not recommend it for professional use-or at least not as a primary camera-essentially due to the absence of CPS support, and the spare parts increasingly at risk.

Pros: sturdiness, tropicalization, battery life, ergonomics.

Cons: Considering the age nobody, looking for the fur in the egg, the shot a bit noisy.

Opinion: Socket used as a body to be associated with the 500 F4 to replace 7d and 1d Mk3, I was hooked. It does not have a newer and more customizable AF module like the most modern Canon SLR cameras, such as 7d Mk2 or 5d Mk3/MkIV (the 1DX I have not tried), but once documented and understood the settings, does not disappoint. The "only" 16 megapixels are more than enough to print good magnifications and also allow a slight crop to fix the shot if necessary. The ISO hold is not bad at all and up to 6400 are well salvable. With 500 F4 is and 2x series III, while slowing down considerably the AF can give unexpected details if the subject occupies a good part of the frame. With 1.4 series III the AF holds quite well even with subjects on the fly. The body well balances with the Supertele, a real tank. Battery life is remarkable: 1200-1500 shots before relocharging. Then we remember the APS-H factor 1.3 x that does not fail for photographic hunting. The ergonomics are great for my hand. The shot is a little noisy, say you feel, especially if you are in the cabin with susceptible species, but acceptable. With the current prices in the used market and sometimes even with "few clicks" for a Series 1, it is a bargain not to get away. Difficult then go back, a series 1 is a series 1 even if discontinued...

Pros: Shutter speed, ruggedness, tropicalization, battery life.

Cons: Weight

Opinion: Bought used with. 250k shots.. The use for two years almost always in the mountains for photographic hunting, volley and incomparable focus (after understanding the menus) with the 100-400 and a little ' heavy to carry around all day, but when you have to shoot you repay the fatigue made. I tried to shoot even at dawn in bad light conditions, but the excellent management of noise even at high ISO... guarantees excellent results Orai located at acceptable prices, 1300-1500euro, and in my opinion it is worth all
