Revives my urge to get a used 1Ds! Amazing work of course. Just curious, did you ever try the Kodak DCS Pro SLR Canon or Nikon versions? I remember trying one out when they were new and at that time thought the colors and skin tones were superb.
I still use the 1ds some, not a lot, but it seems slow by todays standards, though slow is a relative term.
It worked under any lighting condition from day to tungsten, and really was a ground breaking camera, actually the first digital camera I used that worked and looked like film
My first professional digital camera was the dcs 760 nikon version which was very good, best camera body in the world, based on a F5 that is just head and shoulders above any camera Nikon made then or sense then, or probably ever will, with great focus, removable prisms and Nikon's famed metering
If it just had 6 more mpx to stop any alaising, though honestly I could shoot with it today and not be bother by it. Then the max iso was around 200, but with todays processor you could easily double that.
These 760 images were both shot in LA, obviously different projects.
It really was a great camera and one of the few that I miss.
I think this shows how good digital was then and even though buffers and lcds were smaller, iso more limited, the cameras were really based on a film like look and are still viable.
All of us can be gear heads, thinking the next great camera will help us produce the next great body of work and these forums are made for gear heads, but as we all know it's the subject, the photographer it's more than anything, as long as the camera doesn't stop you.
