I just picked up a 1DN about a week ago. I am trying to figure out how to turn off the blinking highlights on playback? I find it kind of annoying when viewing the pictures. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

By exposing correctly? (blinking highlights means all detail is lost in those areas)

If it is possible you'll probably find it in the manual of your camera.

Haha. I know that is the easy way to do it! I was just out shooting for fun the other day in a park and i was doing some informal portraits just to screw around with no flash and of course to expose the person correctly blew out the sky.

Go to Play menu (second from the left) and turn Highlight alert off.

Ah, Thank you! I played around briefly in there but didn't notice anything at first glance.

How are you liking the 1D Mark IIn? I have the 5D Mark II for landscape/Portrait shots and I have been thinking of picking up the Mark IIn for sports and other events.

I am thinking about picking up a 1D iiN or 1Ds ii in the winter if I find a need for it - is the two hand operation a problem for you?

Not at all. Like anything else, Once you get the hang of it then it's a breeze.

I love the two hand operation. You can no longer make any "accidental" mistakes.

The good, it's bullet proof, takes a serious butt kicking and keeps right on moving. The AF is nothing short of amazing. It was one of my better buys in Canon.

The bad, the ^%( sensor sucks up dirt like a hoover shop vac. Mine is always dirty even after cleaning.
It gets a little noisy at all ISO's compared to todays cameras.

Enjoy it, it is one of the better bodies built by Canon

The ugly, it can get damn heavy after a few days of carting it around with extra batts.

Funny, I love mine for noise performance. And dust is fine too, even though I have the certified dust pump lens, the push-pull 100-400L. I just use a blower to clean it once in a while. I love the weight, no problem with that, good exercise :lol:

I've had a IIN for about a year now. I had to send it in about two months ago to have the sensor replaced. It's heavy and you have to hold down two buttons to do everything....and I LOVE it. I wouldn't trade it for anything!...except maybe a Mark IV... ;)

I haven't had a huge issue with dust. I blow it out time to time with a rocket blower and it's all good. Noise on the 1D2 is pretty darn clean all the way through ISO 1600 and usable at ISO 3200 with some NR (personal tastes apply). I've loved the handling and design of the 1D2. Keeps me from accidentally bumping and changing stuff which happens on my 20D a little too much :lol:.

I just sent mine in to probably have the sensor or digic2 board replaced. It all of the sudden got really noisy at higher ISO speeds and was showing nasty banding at anything above 1600 and faintly at ISO1250.

I know this has been covered, somewhere, but what is the KEY difference between the 1D II and the 1D IIn?

better LCD, picture styles, bigger buffer, reworked UI, basically.
