Canon 1Ds Mark II

Saw this very intresting advertisement in the mir when this guy want to trade his Canon 1Ds Mark II with Canon 7D plus some top-up from the 7D owner.

Quickly I did some some searching on the 1Ds and was impressed with the feedback that i got. I was once the best camera that Canon has ever produce and it is still one of the best. I was informed that Din Arshad still using this camera.

I send text to the guy inquired about the availability of the camera and finally last Thursday August 18, 2010 I met Allan at his gallery (Ant Gallery) at Mutiara House.

The camera was in good condition at 1st glance. Did some testing with my 70-200 2.8 IS lens and quite impressed with the result. Still need to get use with the camera's buttons.

Allan give me assurance that within 4 days that if I'm not happy with the camera, I can return it back.

Guess what? I really like it with the output, I means the photos but the camera quick control dial is not functioning and the batteries will dry flat after 20-30 shots. This happened to me when I shoot Ziana Zain and Diana Daniel at KL Tower.

Next monday I'm going to return it back. Miss my 7D...

Here are some of the sample photos
