My ultimate wishlist would involve a complementary trio.

1) Canon 5D with a telephoto, wide angle and macro lens.
2) Jangy's HD Digital camcorder
3) Casio Exilim for the stealth pics

I would also need a tripod, cruisecam, and remotes for all the cameras.

Want: Cannon 30D with all the lenses but need lesson on how to use it. :rofl:

No MKIII? :D

I'll settle for a:

-Peleng 8mm fisheye
-EFS 10-22mm
-EF 16-35 f/2.8L
-EF 24-70 f/2.8L
-EF 70-200 f/4L
-EF 400 f/5.6L USM
-EF 600mm f/4L USM (stalking people ya know)
-Hoya polarizers
-CF cards (they're all the same to me)
-Car rig from automotiverigs.com

Ideal subjects:
-Mercedes E55 AMG dropped on HREs/Rads etc.
-White Lamborghini Murcielago LP640
-Jessica Alba
-My car w/ 20s Rads/RT ELM + Jessica Alba
-Ferrari 288 GTO Rosso Corsa

Eric has the 1DMKII not the 1Ds so I can't really answer that question. The pictures that come out of his 1D look considerably better than my 20D or his 5D. It's hard to describe but it seems like color tone is way better. Eric and I both agree the 5D isn't really worth the money. Hint hint Roupin. ;) Sure it has the megapixels and full frame but the color is just bleh. For the same price the 1DMKIIn would probably be a better option.

I hope he didn't pay an extra several grand for nice color tones. :D
Naaah, there are some advantages of the 1D that the other Canons can't replicate. Plus it didn't hurt that he was a Canon employee at one time so everything he has was bought at a very deep discount.

Looks like I'm getting horny off the wrong camera :wall:

That's why I run all my ideas past you now :thumbup:
It's an okay camera but for $3k you'd expect more. All of the pictures I've seen from the 5d are just so-so.

My dream will be a 5D with 16-35mm f2.8L + 500mm f2.8

Ling, I envy your rig setup.

Here are samples of my rig shots; having to spend more $500.00 at filmtools in Hollywood :(

20D 24-70 f2.8L (definetly not wide enough).

Would it be possible to share notes on building a rig??? Purty please? :D

Wow!! Nice pics! I wish I could share the info but it isn't my setup to share. :) The rig shots are done by my friend Eric Kieu (razox). He is the man. ;)
