Canon 1Ds Mark IV

Canon 1Ds Mark IV on Canon Website

When I first saw this list for extended warranty options showing the Canon 1Ds Mark IV, I figured it was a typo since it’s pretty common to see the 1D Mark IV mistakenly listed as the 1Ds Mark IV (even on some of Canon’s sites).

However, this was actually a separate listing from the 1D Mark IV and the 1Ds Mark III, already in the chart above.  And, the 1Ds Mark IV listing was a different price. [click to continue…]

Industrious purchasers might decide to sell them for about $200 and recapture the purchase price, along with the $200 rebate for their new Canon DSLR body and come out way ahead. . . . I’m just sayin’.

Let’s Go Digital has posted a full review of the Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III.

Canon started from scratch with the Mark III. And that is obvious with the Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III. It is much more than a Mark II with a new image sensor. There has been thorough thought about the whole camera and the entire structure has been altered without making the photographer used to working with a Canon EOS-1 lose his way.

PopPhoto has posted a camera test of the 21.1 megapixel Canon 1Ds Mark III.

Color accuracy on the 1Ds Mark III also lands in the top tier, with an Excellent rating based on an average Delta E of 6.98 (compared with 7.3 on the 1D Mark III and 7.28 on the Nikon D3, also Excellent ratings.) The color accuracy remained similarly high all the way up through ISO 1600, while resolution dropped only 15 percent when we applied full noise reduction at ISO 1600 and 3200 in Canon’s sophisticated (and included) Digital Photo Professional software.
