A 1Ds Mk II....I'm jealous. Hell, I'm jealous of your 5D, too. I'm shooting the old 1D at only 4.2 Mp and am suffering through serious envy at every turn. Love the camera, but would give my left eye for the extra 4.0 Mp.
By the way JP, I totally dropped the ball on getting back to you about renting studio time. Been too buried by my 9 to 5 and haven't been ignoring you, I've been ignoring everyone.
I will catch up with you...likely after April 15th...if the possibility is still open.

No problem.. I've been doing 14 hr days lately as a fill in for a staff photographer at a magazine while he is off covering the Brewers in Spring training in AZ.. I'm both the full time guy + the freelancer at the same time now.. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] I've been blowing off everyone now too lately.. untentionally..
BTW, that old 1D is still a fine camera.. One thing that is nice about it,...make that two things,... is that the top flash sync is 1/500ths, not 1/250ths like the 1D/sMk2 bodies are.. and, the 4MP in RAW means you can shoot in RAW mode all you want and not fill up your cards nearly as fast.....but then again,...the battery life stinks, and so does the buffer in comparrison..and being able to zoom in the pic is a very nice addition.. but, I was actually thinking about buying one off my friend Dan who will be upgrading to the Mk2 soon.. It's crazy that it wasn't that long ago that those were selling for 5,600.00 ....these days, they go for less than 2K mint.. Yep,...technology is cool..
BTW, the high ISO performance,...I swear it's noticably better than the 20D was.. I'm shooting at 1600 & 3200 a LOT with them.. they are amazing!
We'll talk more in a few months.. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
