    go search for the latest thread abt this. someone else asked and received the reply to the same question.

    bottom line - how to compare bet pro-body cam and a consumer-grade cam?

    like comparing a 50yr old worker who got tons of experience and a 20-something who is young and full of energy?

    Both camera got their pros and cons, depends what u shoot most of the time....but if u ask me to choose one, I will take 1D

    Here is the reason

    I have used 20D and 1D side by side, u can take a look at some of the shots that i posted.

    I will take the 1D anytime...love the handling, accuracy, consistency, colour, speed and sharpness straight out of the camera

    If dat's the case... I'll go for 1D instead.

    And oh yes, it depends very much on the condition. If its all beat up and looks like it barely made it back from the Afghanistan and Iraq War. No thanks, I'll go for 20D.

    I will take the 1D.....however....a high-end camera needs a high-end lens....so it may end up costing much more....the two cameras are on par....again...each having its own pros and cons....

    I dont think you can find used 1D at the same price as a brand new 20D yet

    most of the 1D are going for $3K-3.5K, hardly see any set going less than $3K mark

    1D already around for 4 years, and its present value also explain why 1D is still more superior in certain ways
