can anyone help me with a problem? I'm not sure if this is regular behavior, but my 1d2n only get about 27 jpegs in L before the camera hits the buffer wall. As per canon, it should really be able to hit 48. any reason for this disparity? this is the second 1d2n from KEH that i've gone through with this issue. advice?

Check if your in camera noise reduction is on. If it is, it can limit your buffer a bit. Your CF card may also not be writing fast enough.


I need to stay out of the buy/sell forum. It's burning a hole in the wallet...

Go into your menu under the shooting menu. Look at your jpeg settings. The higher the quality you have set, the fewer number available in burst. Dial it to different quality settings, then look thru the viewfinder and see what the difference available to you in burst is.
Page 46 of your manual.
There is nothing wrong with your camera regarding this.

No, you just register the equipment by using the serial numbers.

Is this camera right for me? I don't print anything really big, I need a backup body, I would like something with weather sealing so I can take it out in the elements more than my 5Dc, I do shoot low light some but most of the time I am going for the grainy look anyways, need something with better AF occasionally, something I can use at weddings and stuff. I don't have the cash right now but I am saving for one and can hopefully have one within the next 2 months or so. I am looking at a BGN MKIIN from KEH since it will be exposed to the elements anyways and I really could care less how it looks, just as long as it performs well. You can check out my Flickr link in my sig to see some examples of my style and the kind of stuff I do.

Has anyone had any issues with either the extreme 1V's or the extreme pro compact flash cards with this camera. Do they work with the camera? The extreme 3's CF cards are getting harder and harder to find as SD cards seem to dominate the market.

Brennan, I've seen lots of your postings over the past couple of years plus checked out your flickr. Your style seems more suited to a full frame camera, but I'm sure you'd make a 1D2(n) sing pretty well. If looking for the weather sealing, I'm guessing you're only considering the 1D series, so this is a great choice for the price range. To get a better body (in my opinion), you'd need to drop an extra $1k on a 1D3 or 1Ds2. So, in summary, yes this would be a good compliment to your 5Dc, especially with your skill.

Thanks for the quick reply! I don't have $2k to drop on a body (or anything else for that matter lmfao) right now so a 1D3 or 1Ds2 is out of the question. They would have to drop another $500 or so for me to even consider it. I need a reliable backup because the plan this year is to second shoot a few weddings and get my feet wet with that and I need to send my 5D off for the shutter fix and I can't go without a camera. I think a 1D2N would be nice to start with and maybe I can move on to something else later. I also find myself ducking for cover when it starts to even drizzle outside for fear my 5D will get water in it. I am an outdoor shooter, I need weather sealing haha.

Ya, my opinion is that this is a great camera. The main shortcomings are age related, similar to the 5D, so really not "problems" so much as not the latest and greatest. You will do well with a 1D2n. Hopefully others will chime in, but I'm sure the support for this camera will be pretty universal in this thread, haha! :)

Midget, ....no....not that I know of.

Brennan,
Consider a 1DS. It has what some folks say is a grainy look at higher ISO, like 400 and above. I call it a "film-like" quality. Personally, I love it. They are generally under $1K now.

Yeah, I can deal with age haha. Most of my stuff is old anyways. I can always upgrade when I get more money. First after the 1D2N would be to upgrade my 5D after I get more business so I have plenty of time.

Your web site looks very nice. I think the MKII will compliment your 5D very well. You will have all the bases covered with these two bodies. What the 5D lacks with slower AF and weather seals, the MKII makes up for in spades. Great body for weddings, with good file sizes for most printing needs (just can't crop as much as the 5D) and rated ISO's are similar looking. I also use the 1Ds, and as mentioned, it's got a lovely "edgy/toothy" sharp look to the files, that no other camera has, but it's slower, and has the smaller LCD screen, which is not a problem for me as the way I use it. The MKIIn uses the same screen as the 5D so you know what to expect. With the faster speed of the MKIIn, I'd stick to that for weddings along with your 5D. Only draw back is different batteries and menu sets with the two systems. That drove me crazy, so I stuck with the one series all the way.

I wouldn't mind going 1D series all the way hahahaha. My bank account would though lol. I hardly crop anyways so I am not too worried about file size.
