I am investing in the 10D for my glamour/fashion work, but want to find a non-digital that is equally well suited, professional and compatible with the same lenses as the 10D.

Can anyone give me suggestions? I heard that the EOS 1, 1N, 1V, 3 were best, but I would appreciate some help!

I have the 10D as my primary camera. I also have a EOS Elan and it seems very close to the 10D is capability. Of course, my RB67 is hard to beat, except the fact that it seems to way two tons, and I'm not as yound as I used to be.
I think any Canon EOS will work great. Keep in mind the 1.6 multiplier, though!
Cheers,
rfs

Thanks for the swift response [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] It is much appreciated.

Are all the EOS compatible with the same Flash gear as the 10D?

yes, for the most part, all eos accessories, lenses, flash, etc are all compatible with the eos cameras. everything works within the eos system. the only differences are camera-specific accessories, i.e. battery packs/grips, focusing screens, etc. but the lenses and flash all work on every eos camera.

Thanks Sean,

It sounds as if the way to go, if finances allow, is the 10D with the 1v. It appears to be a good combo and although most of my work is glamour and fashion, pretty versatile too.

the EX lines of Flashes are not the same as the EZ line. VERY IMPORTANT. All the lenses seem to work fine, but the EZ line of flashes are crap compared to the EX line. The EZ line as A-TTL and the EX line is E-TTL.

here is a line the the system chart I list everything that is compatible

if you're buying a 10D, tim.

it might just frustrate you to find the 1V is way more camera than the 10D. the best thing to do is to match the two cameras.

get the 1D or 1Ds if you want to get the 1V. for the most part, it's the same camera.

get the elan 7 if you're getting the 10D, because they're closer to each other as far as features and functionality and what not.

even something as simple as the weight of it in your hand will matter.

are you shooting digital or film primarily? you'd be spending too much if you buy the 1V just for a back up.

i have a 1V and an Elan 7E, and even switching back and forth between the two during a shoot breaks my rhythm. because of this, i'm looking to buy another 1V. this is just from my experience of course, and just something to consider. the top of the line model is not always the best choice for each person. bottom line is, these cameras will do what you want it to if you know how to use them, whether it be a 1V, Elan 7E or a Rebel.

most of my work is fashion, and i shoot primarily with my mamiya.

I see what you mean, and will bare it in mind.

However, I do intend to keep them entirely separate.

I am shooting mostly digitally and plan to buy the 10D as I think it will be great for my glamour/fashion shoots and I can't afford the 1Ds (my favourite)or 1D.

I need the 1v initially for magazine work I am planning and for other projects where I believe I would do better to shoot using film.

I am quite prepared to believe I am wrong though, so if you have any thoughts about this then please let me know!

I definately want to make the right decisions while at investment stage so I greatly appreciate any input.
