I'm a new user and was wondering if you used both cards CF and SD to record? I've only been using SD as I don't need any adapters and can pop right into my laptop.

I prefer shooting SD cards for this exact reason though I have both a CF and SD card loaded so I can quickly switch over and continue shooting if I run out of card on the SD slot or so I don't have to open up the camera at all in harsh environments. Only a few times on super critical shoots did I use the backup function.

tfd888 can you get a close shot of how your straps look where the neck and hand strap come together? I was thinking about running mine the same way you have but I'm curious on the specifics of the routing of the straps.

Sure! give me a little to get one up.

Here's my strap setup NorCalNomad! Took me a while to figure out as well, the instructions aren't really good and aren't even included with the strap...they're with the battery grips! May have been in the 1D manual as well but I can't remember.

Me too.
I managed to get one with less than 50k actuations on for £260. Complete with everything in great condition. Now to learn how to use it, only issue is it hunts a lot may need a proper clean.
Anyone got recommendations for cleaning AF sensor and sensor.

Where on earth did you manage to get one at that price?

I've just had mine serviced by Fixation in London for a shade under £200. Includes a sensor clean and AF adjustment.
If it's hunting I wonder whether it may need more than a simple adjustment,.

Ebay :D, however he said it hunts and I think it may just be the AF sensor. I haven't had chance to have a good look yet.
It may be more work but I think at that price and I couldn't fail.
What did they do for that price, must be more than a simple clean.

Complete service. This includes sensor cleaning and testing against Canon standards for things like AF.

Best thing would be to contact them and ask exactly what is covered.

What I did find slightly weird is that they wouldn't tell me how much the AF was out, simply that it had been calibrated to Canon standards.

The camera is spot on now.

Great piece of info. I've always wanted to have both attached and have always removed one for the other depending on what I was shooting...thanks!

Just picked up a "new to me" MK IIn. Should be here Wed or Thur. Anyone still using the "classic" 1D along with the IIn?

I first thought I'd sell my "classic 1D" after I got the IIn, but my 1D is like practically new, with only 29K on the shutter and super clean. I really love the RAW image quality out of it. Can't bring myself to sell it... Thinking of just keeping it as a back-up now. Prices have dropped so ridiculous on them, I think it's worth more as a back-up then trying to sell it. I also have a 1Ds for higher Res work at low ISO when needed. :confused:
