Transition to Digital Capture: Canon EOS 1D Mark II
My transition from film to digital capture has gone smoothly. The Canon EOS 1D Mk II is very similar to the EOS 1v that I had been using, and the basic camera exposure controls are almost the same, so the learning curve has been very easy. The grips are slightly different though, and it took a while to get used to the new shape. One thing that I'm still trying to get used to is the on/off switch because that's moved. I had been able to operate the on/off switch on the 1v w/o thinking, but I still have to look at the body to make sure I'm getting my finger in the right position for the 1D Mk II. But, the switch is actually in a more practical position on the 1D Mk II, so it shouldn't take much longer before I get used to it.
