Hahaha did your head explode from the speed difference?
On High speed shutter mode, OMG YES! Sounds like a paintball gun. For the first 5days i forgot how to switch the shutter mode to single click, so i was doing street potrait shots on HS mode. You end up taking 3-4 shots when u mean to take 1.
Some info on the new one, from previous owner.
- new shutter in January 2010 by Canon North Ryde (cost over $500)
- used as backup/secondary camera since then, perhaps 5000 shots total (i'm being optimistic there, it's probably less).
- battery holds great charge and will easily see you through 1500 shots, probably closer to 2000 on a single charge
- has some bumps and marks on the body as you'd expect from a camera which has been used.
- Genuine Canon Twin battery charger and australian cord
- AC coupler adaptor
- Aquatech Eyepiece (worth $39.95 RRP)
- possibly a spare Canon Eyepiece (if I can find it!)
- various USB and AV cables (sitting in the box somewhere)
- the box and manual (have to dig out the manual from someplace)
So i ended up getting it for just under $1200 AUD. As i also do alot fo motorsport stuff, most guys still are shooting with the mk2's. As they are better for that than mk3s, in the field.
Guy i got it off, went to a mk4. Alot are also going that route atm, so you can bit up some good deals.
Been out shooting alot of different stuff since i got it to familiarise myself with different conditions. Portrait, night, motorsport, etc.
