kawboy, I was going to recommend Noiseware but kwb beat me to it. (kawboy and kwb.....you guys are confusing me:o:rolleyes:

I have always used their Noiseware Pro versions, both the PS plug in and the standalone versions for batch processing. It does a great job. I don't know what the community version lacks. You might also go to their web site because they have a free noise reduction tutorial that is very helpful and non-product specific. Very educational.

Recently, I upgraded to LR3 and its NR is very, very good. So I rarely use Noiseware anymore.

Also, the DPP noise reduction is good and, best of all, free;)

I've been using Neat Image with great results. DPP's chroma noise reduction is decent but it's luminance noise reduction beyond 3/20 is not very good and gives muddy/soft results IMO.

He's young, maybe 2 yrs old i'm guessing, act's like he's blind and can't see me unless i make sudden movements. I even got up from my smoking chair and walked in the door, slowly, and he just stayed there eating. the last 2 weeks, he's been coming up onto the porch every night arount 630pm and 1030pm.

I think the 2nd pic is funny because that statue he's looking at is of a Raccoon :lol:

Hey everyone, just got a BEAUTIFUL 1D2N at a very good price. It even came with an almost as new battery (wow, those things are huge). I just wondered, if I should want a spare battery or two, and don't feel like handing Canon one of my kidneys for a "new" Canon battery, which third-party battery should I get? I don't mind paying a bit for a quality product, but Canon batteries are ridiculously expensive, here in Denmark at least.


I know, I really don't need that lens

I bought the cheapest (with the highest capacity) I could find on ebay, and they last me around 2000 shots ++.

Anyways, 1DII + Helios 135mm M42 manual focus lens which cost me $30

all of the after market battery's just about suck D on the end cap so see if you can find someone with a dead battery for the 1D or 1DmkII and get the end cap off that. But they have good cells in them.

Seems that Lenmars are the popular 3rd party battery choice.

They can be had from Amazon for $32.70 US here: http://www.amazon.com …ics&qid=1281519​134&sr=8-1 (external link)

This too. If you can salvage the end cap from a Canon battery, do so. It's pretty simple to transfer the end caps, just a few screws if I remember right. The weather sealing on the 3rd parties can be questionable though some say that they don't have any issues.

yeppers. That and the little latch thingy is plastic on almost all 3rd party ones.

I highly recommend the Lenmarks. In fact, my end cap works better on my Lenmark, than on my Canon battery. It is an extremely tight fit and seals exceptionally well. It last a good long time. The most I've kept track of (I usually lose track eventually) is over 3000 shots on it. For me, I will eventually replace all my batteries with a Lenmark. And at 30-some bucks, you can't really beat them!

another vote for the lenmar. Mine seems to be fine both in fit and number of shots it gives

Picked up a Mk2 N, just over a week ago. Bloody good so far, and a great jump of an upgrade from the 10D.
