    i can get a Canon 1D for $750 right now, but i cant decide if i want to get that, or get a Nikon Coolscan V [4000 dpi] for like $550.

    what im wondering: has anyone here shot with a 1D before. im wondering how large of a print i can make that is crisp from about one to two feet.

    the largest print ill ever make is gonna be 13x19.

    A 1D will do that size at around ~130dpi give or take. Buy a used 20/30D if you require print sizes that big at 250+ dpi.

    reason i ask, is i dont like the way the 20/30/40D feel in my hand when they have the grip on them. my elan 7's feel great, and the EOS 1's feel great. so my options in terms of comfort [in my mind at least] is stick with my film cameras, or get a 1.
