Hi All,

I am new to DSLR category but I used to work with SLR previously.
I was just looking for a second hand camera under 1200$ budget.

In ebay I could see Canon EOS 1Ds on sale which comes close to my budget. I love Nature, landscape and wildlife photography. Anyone please advise is it still worth the money or technology has gone far beyond? I tried to research but couldn’t find a direct answer anywhere.


Basically, your spending $1,000+ on a very old out dated computer. Digital imaging technology has come along way since then (not that the 1Ds doesn't make fine images). Personally, I think you'd be far better off with a T2i than the old 1Ds even if it's just for the far superior and larger LCD screen.
