Famed wedding photographer Jeff Ascough has decided to dump his
lousy Canon EOS 5D Mark IIs for a couple of Canon EOS-1D MKIV cameras. I've seen this mentioned in a couple of places and now I see there's an official page over on the Canon Professional Network site.
An excerpt from his CPN blog:
“Iâ€™ve been shooting with the EOS-1D Mark IV for about three months now. This is the time of year when there are quite a few candlelit wedding ceremonies and receptions, so Iâ€™m often shooting events that are taking place in near darknessâ€¦
The cameraâ€™s performance is really quite staggering at higher ISOs, especially 6400 and 12,800, as the image quality is just gorgeous. There is little noise, no banding and, for a crop sensor camera, the resolution is very good. I have to admit that I probably wouldnâ€™t use the H1 setting (12,800) on the 5D Mark II but Iâ€™d happily use 12,800 on the 1D Mark IV all day long.”
Read the whole story and see some great wedding samples.
