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.
