    So far I've been really impressed with the focusing, sharpness and speed but my 5D beats it for resolution and clarity. Still, this camera will fit quite well with my other gear and I expect it to shine for shooting fast action and spur of the moment stuff.

    I just have to spend a few weeks getting comfortable with all the settings.

    thats why I never added a 5d. Going back and forth between totally different formats was too much for quick shoots. :hs:

    so let me get this right, you have worked with video your entire life, and in the past year or 2 you have picked up photography as a hobby to satisfy your need to be "filming" something. (with the hope of making money, which we all love)

    I love it, I want to buy everything I see too.... I can just watch your threads and fulfill my buying needs through you


    its like having a kid but better :big grin:

    It's actually not that bad. I have both cameras set to manual so the shutter speed and aperture controls are the same. The only big difference is that the 5D shows the exposure meter in the bottom of the viewfinder while the 1D shows it on the side. The playback controls are pretty much the same except that there's a lot more button pushing on the 1D. The 1D is also harder to figure out menu wise. Mine didn't come with a manual but I've got one that I downloaded. I need to find me a copy of the manual I can carry with me or buy one of those books that explains the camera in detail.
