Canon 1Ds mkIII in the Italian Dolomites
Nov 11, 2010

While many are debating the next new unreleased camera model and measurements from DxO you can still go out shooting with what we have

I noticed that the Canon 1Ds mkIII is now down to a ranking of #27 for landscape photography

In the following are some pictures from a recent trip to the Italian Dolomites where I led a photo workshop for 8 photographers. All the following photos are taken with the 1Ds mkIII. The lenses will be mentioned for each photo. All were post processed in Lightroom 3.2 and 3.3RC.

Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS at f/8, 1/10s, ISO 100 single exposure and no HDR

Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS at f/8, 1/160s, ISO 100 single exposure and no HDR

Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS at f/8, 1/30s, ISO 100 single exposure and no HDR

Canon 300 f/4L IS at f/8, 1/25s, ISO 100 single exposure and no HDR

Canon 24-70 f/2.8L at f/8, 1/25s, ISO 100 single exposure and no HDR

Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS at f/8, 1/80s, ISO 100 single exposure and no HDR

Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L at f/8, 1/40s, ISO 100 single exposure and no HDR

Canon 24-70 f/2.8L at f/8, 1/30s, ISO 100 single exposure and no HDR

A beautiful set - I'm very envious.

We had a week north of Corvara last August, and whilst I did get some good stuff, we also had plenty of very heavy rain and overcast skies.

Brilliant.

Great shots. Nothing to do with the camera of course, just skill and the most beautiful mountains in the world, by common consensus.

I cycled through these in 1996 and a few of my shots were as good as yours, using a Contax T2 compact with slide film!! I still have that camera and occasionally use it. I think the colour from slide film is still ahead of digital colour.

Nice images...it's true we are never happy & always looking for the next upgrade when we have perfectly good equipment...who'd believe it's only a decade since Nikon launched the first digital slr with a whopping 2.7 million pixels...if I stick with the 5d mk ii or if I switch back to Nikon & a D3x one thing is certain...it'll be a purchase for at least 5 years regardless of what upgraded models are released...unless I win the lotto in which case I'll be happy to buy every new model & gadget going lol

My family is from this area (Mel Belluno) and I have never been there. I plan to visit next May/June and I cannot wait.

Not really sure what to say here.

Stunning is the first thing that comes to mind.

Thanks very much Mogens, and yes the pictures are from that workshop. I have a new one in October 2011 and you can find it under workshops in my signature. 7 seats are taken already.

A certain quality is needed from the camera, but otherwise it is mostly about finding the right spots and the right time and a bit of luck

I cycled through these in 1996 and a few of my shots were as good as yours, using a Contax T2 compact with slide film!! I still have that camera and occasionally use it. I think the colour from slide film is still ahead of digital colour.

These mountains certainly would require quite some effort on a bike. I have tried the Pyrenees so I know I think you can get whatever color you want from digital. It's a matter of the right post processing and software.

We had some less productive weather also, but also gorgeous weather. It's the third time I have been there and never been entirely without the blessing from the weather gods

Wow, you have something to look forward to. Generally it is a very beautiful area and knowing the right spots from a photographic point is the icing on the cake
