My son plays for a U17 travel soccer team and we traveled to Buckhannon, WV this past weekend and played 3 games. Saturday was rainy for the first two games, but Sunday morning brought snow for their other game. This is the first time I've shot any sport while it was snowing. Definitely an experience to remember for me. Here are some shots from the game.

Thanks, Theron! It started as a heavy mist, but right after the beginning whistle it quickly changed to a heavy snow. It was funny to see a slow rolling soccer ball have snow stick to it and start to form a large snow ball.

Thanks, burnet. Glad you got your 40D working again. Any luck on finding that 1D MKIII you've been searching for?

no
thanks for asking
been on the tail of about 4 or 5
ebay kills me
autobids just jack it up
I wish I could set my bid at about 1100
and be in the bid till someone passes it
missed on one I really liked

another problem is shutter count on the 1dIII
most people say they cant get it unless they send it to Canon
I have had a couple who post a shutter count

hard to believe either one

no shutter count = Im not buying
any ides on how I can get a low milage 1DIII I will gladly listen to

thanks Wilt I appreciate it

I shot a game confab last night
2 schools were playing each other in BB, SB and soccer all at the same time in one place

I tried a few new things

1. when my shutter speed drops below 1/500 its time to quit
2. aint shooting 3200 or 1600 iso much or at all anymore
3. try to use 3.2 or better more often maybe to help focus
4. outfield night game shots are a waste of time and effort with my 40D
5. get better at light room but even it wont make dark blurry noisy pics worth posting


I did the soccer pics first since it was on a bigger field and there was a little light because of DST
Moved to the baseball field next because its big and there was a little light left
went to the softball field last smaller field to maybe catch more light since it was dark then

I went home and did the soccer pics
they were fair but nothing to write home about or the Polish guys stuff
Ill do the bb and sb pics tonight will prob be dark and blurred as usual
maybe a few keepers

I bought mine without knowing the shutter count, but was able to see it in person and test it out before purchasing it. The camera looks brand new and doesn't have a scratch on it. The shutter is rated to 300,000 so I wouldn't worry too much about it. I'm still figuring out the focus settings, but am really pleased with my purchase. What a difference from my T1i!

I got mine on POTN classifieds with just a guess as to the shutter count. I never checked it though, and really don't care. Once you see how durable they are, you really won't care. I went out looking for the most beat up one (still working) I could find, just to save the money.

Unless the seller has a recent slip from a Canon service center, there is no way of determing the shutter count on a 1d3. Those programs that try to estimate are not accurate, and usually will have an estimate of <10k. I had a 1d3 with well over 85k actuations that all the programs had listed at 7k. If you see a seller listing a 1d3 that is all beat up, but they tell you it has 6k actuations, be skeptical. Anyone can make up whatever shutter estimate they'd like when selling (since it's hard to accurately verify), so don't buy on that bit of information.

I would pay more attention to the condition of the body and signs of use (fading, brassing, etc). Find a body that is in good shape, and more than likely the shutter count will be lower. It's hard to get over 100k on a shutter without some signs of use appearing. I also find that people who keep their original boxes/accessories, etc, tend to keep better care of their gear, so keep that in mind.

Frankly, for the 1d3, I'd prefer to see a body with a higher shutter count. These bodies are getting to be 4 or 5 years old now. If it had a low shutter count, I'd probably wonder if it from lack of use due to recurring AF issues, etc... Getting a well used body, you'd hope that nobody would put 100k actuations on a body that sucked at autofocusing!
