The EOS-1Ds Mark II is a professional camera that has become a continuation of the highly successful in the professional environment EOS-1Ds (a reviews of which is alreadyavailable on Radozhiva). 1Ds Mark II was announced back in 2004 at a price of $ 8000 và was released until 2007, after which the mã sản phẩm came to lớn replace it 1Ds Mark III.

The main application of 1Ds Mark II: studio photography, magazine photography, stock photography, in general - any kind of filming where high resolution & high chất lượng photographs are required.

In front, the camera has retained the familiar, classic appearance of its predecessor, almost without any changes. In front is the button for repeating the diaphragm, the lamp of the timer indicator & the button for removing the lens. The elements are located, in my opinion, it’s very convenient, when using the Camera you don’t have to intercept it, which is extremely important in professional filming, where sometimes it costs a lot of money.

On the back side, the camera has nothing superfluous, everything is quite thought out and, in comparison with its predecessor, changes in the controls are insignificant. The ergonomic camera is very easy to perceive in the hand - it is "аĸ necessary".

I will not dwell on appearance và management for a long time, there is a lot of information about this on the Internet and I can only say that after a short time for getting used khổng lồ it, management becomes familiar and perceived quite logically & routinely.

Key Features

The camera has a dust-moisture-protective housing, which allows you khổng lồ use 1Ds Mark II in difficult weather conditions, for example, in hiking and expeditions. The camera is convenient for shooting in both orientations due to lớn the built-in battery handle, although this negatively affected the weight of the camera, which is 1.5 g.

The camera works without problems with any lenses created for the Canon EF mount, with the exception of the very old third-party optics created for the Canon EOS film cameras.

1Ds Mark II has a full-frame sensor: 36 X 24 milimet CMOS, with low-pass filter & effective resolution 16.7 megapixels. Given the above parameters, the camera has a "fat" pixel size: 7.2 μm, which has a very positive effect on the final result và reduces the optical requirements. The đầu ra image from the Camera is very pleasant, colorful and contrast, despite not the highest dynamic range, và only 12-bit RAW tệp tin format.

The autofocus camera system has 45-point focusing (7 points), in good lighting the autofocus operation does not cause any complaints in practice with any lenses I tested. Viewfinder with 100% frame coverage and chất lượng pentaprism. The desire to kiểm tra the sharpness after the shot disappears - the autofocus works perfectly, even if you use non-cross points autofocus.

1Ds Mark II has slots for 2-card memory formats: CompactFlash Type I / II (supports Microdrive) & Secure Digital, including SDHC.

Serial shooting 4 frames per second, which is quite enough for most tasks, even some sports can be successfully filmed. The camera buffer holds 11 RAW shots at ISO 100 và 10 shots at any other ISO setting. When shooting in JPEG, everything is not unambiguous, below are the parameters of resolution, ISO và the number of shots that fit into the buffer:

This table will be useful when filming a dynamic reportage, which does not require further deep processing of the images or requires urgent delivery of the material (parameters are shown with noise reduction disabled and quality "10" for all resolutions of the JPEG format).

ISO in Camera is available from 100 lớn 1600 units, it is also possible lớn expand lớn the values ​​of L - ISO 50 và H - ISO 3200, I would like to chú ý that in this camera Canon acted honestly - there are no “Marketing” ISOs in the camera. Even the ISO 3200 value can be successfully used for some tasks with a few caveats.

Camera features, personal experience

There is a lot of information on the internet on this Camera, but there is some information, including from personal experience, which you most likely will not find anywhere và it will definitely be useful khổng lồ users of this Camera, or those who wish khổng lồ acquire it.

It became interesting khổng lồ me to check the maximum amount of memory that the 1Ds Mark II can use. And so, the camera uses the FAT32 file system (at that time EXFAT was not yet used in cameras and, in my opinion, the standard was not even adopted / was in development). First I took CF memory cards & all available capacities, including 128 GB, which the camera perfectly formatted và used, even when using the CF - SDXC adapter, which allows using SD cards in the CF thẻ slot. All memory volumes worked fine. But when I installed a 256 GB memory card in the camera, the 1Ds Mark II saw the kích cỡ of the card, but when I tried to lớn format it, it gave an error and the ability lớn use this thẻ was lost. Và then the thought came khổng lồ me that this whole situation looks strange, after which I tried to lớn format the memory thẻ on the computer in FAT6 format. By the way, I use the operating system MAC OS X 32 Catalina, for formatting I used a standard disk utility. & lo and behold! The camera worked fine with this memory card without any problems. I was extremely surprised when it turned out that the same rule applies to lớn the slot for the SD memory card, with the only difference that the threshold value for the volume of the memory thẻ is 10.15 GB, that is, memory cards with a volume of more than 32 GB will work. Even the modern Sandisk Etreem Pro 32 GB memory card has worked beautifully, on which more than 256 frames can fit in RAW format, I can"t tell the exact value, but the number of frames in the camera is limited lớn 10.000.

The camera uses a small screen - only 2 inches and with a small resolution, but it displays màu sắc very adequately. It is made using TN technology. 1Ds Mark II quite accurately determines white balance, exposure, & other automatic parameters, as phối by the professional camera.

I can’t but praise the autonomy of the Camera, my copy came lớn me in a mix with three full-time batteries, one of which was original và is living out its life, it is possible khổng lồ shoot about 300-500 frames on it, depending on the camera settings & shooting mode. The other 2 accumulators turned out khổng lồ be very good, one of them was ordered new from China, the DSTE company, a few months ago & can quite easily capture 4000-5000 shots at full charge. The third battery is original, but survived the update using the batteries eneloop, which allows you khổng lồ capture about 3000-4000 frames per charge. I have never come from a renter with a fully discharged battery, even in the cold season.

In the settings of the CF.n camera there is a setting that allows you to activate additional AF points that carry auxiliary functions when focusing, but unfortunately for a long time I could not find at least some explanation of the principle and operating conditions of these settings. As it was possible khổng lồ find out, when the function of auxiliary points is activated, when using the optics with a focal distance of up khổng lồ 200 mm, 1-2 nearby auxiliary autofocus points can be activated, in the case when, according khổng lồ the algorithm, this is required. When using optics from 200 mm khổng lồ 300 mm, an algorithm up lớn 7 auxiliary points is connected. At 300 mm và more - for removal, up khổng lồ 11 auxiliary points can be connected at a time. All described settings function when the corresponding parameters are set & work in the “ONE SHOT” mode.

Another interesting point about autofocus: previously I had a very long experience using cameras Canon 6D và 5D Mark III, in the number of several instances, và for all of these cameras, some of my lenses “smeared” và required a fine tuning of autofocus. With the transition to lớn 1Ds Mark II, all available lenses hit exactly on target và do not require adjustment, which is not provided for in the Camera. It’s hard to say why Canon 6D and 5D Mark III such problems, if someone has information on this, you can chia sẻ it in the comments.

During the operation of the camera, I have had minor malfunctions that require disassembling the camera & eliminating the problems that have arisen. We managed khổng lồ find out interesting features. For example, I found that the camera starts on the 1Ds Mark II, 1D Mark II và 1D Mark IIn are very similar & many of the components are identical. Taking into tài khoản the age of the cameras, the electronics occupies a significant place inside their case và due khổng lồ the fact that it was not possible to lớn fit all the necessary components on one board, the motherboard was divided into nodes in the khung of several boards connected in series. The same rule applies to the shutter & release control units of the mirror. During the repair process, we found out that when replacing these motherboards from one camera lớn another, the camera is converted to lớn the model from which the kit is installed. In this way, a 1Ds Mark II camera can be converted into a 1D Mark II by replacing a mix of boards & vice versa. The components that control the shutter and the mirror, the shutter và the shutter itself, as well as the camera nguồn board, are no different from each other. The same rule applies to lớn the top panel and rear panel with display and buttons, the only difference is that the rear roof of the 1D Mark IIn camera is different and most likely will not be able khổng lồ fully work on other models. Another feature of the 1Ds Mark II is that lớn replace the shutter, you will need lớn disassemble the entire camera, but you will not need lớn remove the sensor itself. To replace the matrix, minimal disassembly of the camera is required, which allows, if necessary, lớn adjust the matrix, lớn spend not much time on disassembly và assembly. I did this procedure - the alignment is done using shims. In general, the design, taking into tài khoản the time of the camera"s release, looks quite logical và understandable, but still there are questions about the power board - the main power nguồn lines are implemented in the size of solder wires. The solder points are very close to lớn each other, which, if short-circuited, can damage a number of important components of the camera, which will make it impossible to operate or make diagnostics difficult. Fortunately Canon is working on its shortcomings & in cameras of more recent models, all power nguồn connections are implemented on the basis of plastic connectors with good insulation. When assembling the camera, I soldered all the connections well và made additional insulation of the solder just in case. All in all, the fact that many of the components are compatible between cameras makes them very easy lớn repair. Finding spare parts is getting harder & harder, but cheap cameras with flooring for the Copies are periodically appearing on the secondary market.

Separately, I would like to cảm ứng upon the shutter, its resource & its repair. After reading what experienced craftsmen write, we managed khổng lồ find out that the shutter, mechanically, came out very successful and reliable và in 99% of cases the curtains fail, which are designed for 200 thousand guaranteed operations. In this regard, the locks are quite tenacious. Cameras of the newer models 1Ds Mark III, 1D Mark III & 1D Mark IV use similar shutters, the shape of the curtains is identical, but the shutter resource is increased there - now it is 300 thousand actuations. According to the masters, simply by installing new curtains, the shutter performance is fully restored, & if you install curtains from newer cameras, the shutter resource increases. Apparently, the new cameras used more wear-resistant materials for the production of the curtain shutter. So if the repair of the shutter in the future stopped you from purchasing one of the Mark II cameras, then be safe - curtains from Mark III and Mark IV are sold on aliexpress & ebay without any problems.

If you are interested in some repair questions, you can feel không tính phí to write lớn me and I will help you as much as I can.

Examples of photographs for various optics

To compile a more complete picture for the reader on the capabilities of the Camera and the Picture, which can be obtained from it, I prepared quite a few examples of photos for various optics, which I have or took for the test. Lists of demo subjects: Canon EF 50 f / 1.8 STM, Canon EF 28-90 f / 4-5,6, Canon EF 50 f / 1.4 USM, Canon EF 85 f / 1.8 USM, Canon EF 135 f / 2L USM, Canon EF 300 f / 4L USM, Tokina AT-X PRO 16-28 f / 2.8, Sigma 70-200 f / 2.8 EX DG HSM, Sigma 8 f / 4 EX DG, Sigma 15 f / 2.8 EX DG, Yongnuo YN50 f / 1.4, Yongnuo 35 f / 2, Helios 44-2 58 f / 2.

On a full-frame camera with a not very high resolution of the matrix and, consequently, not a very high requirement for optics, all the objec- tives proved to be quite worthy. True, the periodic camera sets a colder trắng balancethan he really is. The only thing when using the Yongnuo YN50 f / 1.4 lens is that the camera periodically overexposures the frame.
