This is not supported on the 1Ds Mark II. It was probably added on the Mark III, with the newer DIGIC processor.

Ha! probably why I couldn't find how to do it!

On my other point about where the camera says "(2) No more producing folder" when my SD card is inserted what d'ya recon - duff SD? Need to find another to try...

Hello all. I am pleased to note that I have joined the club and acquired a "previously owned" 1Ds Mark II. After just a couple of outings with it, I am deeply impressed with this six year old camera, and certainly hooked on the 1 series features and ergonomics - astonishing.

Biggest surprise though, has to be the professional level exposure metering. It is so much more adept at handling complex scenes, either automatically, or through manual mutiple exposure locks.

I was also pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to fix a loose hot shoe myself, without disassembling the body. Now it is rock solid again.

First big test was on autofocus and the awesome servo tracking at a tennis tournament. Next week I am off to Yellowstone to run it through some different paces.

Looking forward to learning more from you all on taking full advantage of this body.

JH

Congrats and nicely done on the action shots. The AF point linked spot metering is also a great metering mode I use often.

Went to the cemetery on the weekend to wander around with some friends and explore. A few of my favourites:

Shea,

Were these shot with the new TS-E24L II?

How are you finding working with this lens?

I picked up an EF 1.4X II for mine to give me the same focal length when needed! Odd that that the manual says it not compatible as it fits and works well with it!

Cheers!

Nope, those were with the trusty 35L.

Tomorrow morning is going to be just me and the TS-E, so I'll hopefully have something nice to post in the evening.

I've seen tests with the 1.4X (which I have) and it seems to give pretty decent performance, similar to the MarkI version of the lens. I should try it some time. As for the lens, I'm finding it much easier to work with than the mkI, with the better controls really making it nice to work the tilt and shift, rather than the diddly little knobs that were a pain in the butt to use.

Cool!

I tried out a test shot with the extender on my 17 and as a better test of detail, decided to pick a near subject and was not disappointed with the very slight sharpness fall off...

So, with any luck, your new 24 should also fair very with it...assuming the extender fits?

Cheers!

Thanks very much. And thanks for the tip and the excellent examples. I will try this out and get familiar with it. This would be very handy for the next wedding I am shooting in 4 weeks.

Cheers,

JH

I used the 1ds2 for my first wedding gig and it worked great. Focusing and metering were spot on. Post up shots of the wedding.

airbutchie - Where were those taken? I like the first pic with the DOF. Nicely done.

On the subject of bright yellow oil seed, I took a couple of my main model by some today. It really is a fantastic backdrop and I'm certainly going to be going down to the fields again. The second photo is just like the one above.... even has dandelions in the foreground!:cool: Just looking at the second in a bit more detail - wish I had used a smaller apperture to get the dandelions in focus..... It's hard to think when you are trying to manage a wild 2 year old!

David, they were taken at Descanso Gardens here in SoCal (20 miles east of Los Angeles)... Do a google search for more info... And I could definately relate to your satisfaction with the 1Ds2 with regards to weddings... Great tool to use... Much better, too, when it's attached to great glass... Double thumbs-up!!!

- airbutchie :D
