i'm not saying there's a better camera (or that there isn't) - i'm just complaining (about the 1V) since you specifically asked for complaints. If the digital onslaught didn't hit me, i would be happily clicking away with a 1V today.tubbykat said:so st1100, do you reckon there's a better model film camera out there? (canon or non-canon)
i'm just curious becoz everyone keeps saying that the 1V is the best film SLR, what about the F5 or F100, are they that much behind in technological advances compared with Canon?
I second what ST1100 said !ST1100 said:i'm not saying there's a better camera (or that there isn't) - i'm just complaining (about the 1V) since you specifically asked for complaints. If the digital onslaught didn't hit me, i would be happily clicking away with a 1V today.
my complaints:tubbykat said:anyone users of the 1V in this forum?
what are the major complains so far? :dunno:
the reason why there's a 2 action sequence is so that you do not accidentally trigger or change any function. also, it makes the entire interface simpler and more elegant. i actually miss that interface when i use the 10D, which is more like your direct "press this, do that" push button interface.Patryk said:1v...go play with it at camera workshop with the booster pack....wah piang machine gun... it is big, heavy, loud. However, i just hate the buttons they put for the functions and all...must press two at the same time to change the film drive...etc...and it doesn't look as manly and rugged as the mighty F5...weewoot....
Well, u can check the film-roll count out with the 1V software.tubbykat said:i tried a roll on the 1V yesterday! it was awfully loud, is that normal? it's too loud for me to photograph my cats or wildlife.
also i tried using P mode while outdoors shooting a hotel's poolside and garden. man the wideshots of foliage were underexposed, leaves looked very dark. should i have used M mode instead. not used to the weight as well, with the grip it was sturdy but bulky.
anyway quite disappointed but the shots indoors were nice, especially when used with the speedlight.
btw, if the camera was 8mths old, used by a freelancer, not often as this freelancer has another SLR, what do you reckon the film roll count for this camera will be? i want to know if i am wrong to be shocked at the count on this camera...
