I personally recommend the 7D version as it covers the same ground as the 5DmkII version but in more detail.
In a few hours I get on a plane to Prague where it is VERY cold. I am meeting up with Albert Hughes to do some shooting on the 1DmkIV. It’s a stunning city and should look great with this camera in low light.
I only have it for a two days so it’s unlikely I will get a chance to do any side by comparisons between this, the 7D and the 5DmkII but even from one very short test shot I did it’s way cleaner at 3200 ISO than the Canon 5dMKII and 7D are.
I will be updating this blog over the next three days or so finally culminating in a short film made out there.
On Sunday, Lucasfilm’s Rick McCallum will be joining us which will be very cool as we had a great time over at Skywalker Ranch last week. In that vein below is the very first shot I did with the Canon 1dmkiV prototype. Don’t worry, it will get better from now on !!
well so far anyway!
Just camera on tripod. Lights off, let’s see what she can do.
ISO 3200. CANON L series 35mm f1.4 wide open.
Check out my blog for continual updates of weekend shooting with it.
