Hmmm, it looks like I need a DPP CD to use the updater. Oh well. :confused:

Steve,
Yes you do need to have some version...any version of DPP installed to use the updater. Most folks get it from the CD.....however, one of POTN's own has kindly put the application on his site. You can go there, download and install it, then go to the Canon site and do the update.

The feeling is so nice when you send your camera for sensor cleaning and when you get it back it's as if it's like brand new....

The people at that Canon certified service center really did a good job.

I was having trouble looking for the old 1D2 white paper from Canon.
When I finally found it, I uploaded it here (external link) for anyone who wants to download and read it. It's very good read on how to use the AF and custom functions. It's a 1.1M pdf file.

One Question for all you.. I use my cameras for wildlife, and I want te set up my cameras as best I can to get most out of it.

i would like to know how do you have set CFn 4? Which is the best way to have it set considering the animals are moving and the lighting is changing. So that I get the most correct exposure when taking the picture.

It would be 1 on the IIn as well. Setting it to 3 does not allow you to lock the exposure with the shutter button (which is good in some cases). I usually have mine set to 1, personally.
