What's the difference in the HS and the RS? (I have the 1N-RS)

Isn't the RS the fixed pellicle mirror? So you don't get image black-out when you trip an exposure and it rips through at like 10 FPS, right? The HS is just the 1N with the power booster drive (PBD-E1) attached.

Looks like you guys had fun and frosty adventure on the trail! Extra kudos for braving the elements!

How did your batteries hold up in the cold? Lots of switching back and forth to warm them in your pockets?

Cheers!

Sot most of them on an uncharged battery. After about 100 shots it finally died. I had 3 other batteries sitting in the bottom of my Lowepro Toploader. Didn't try to keep them warm at all, and I'm still shooting off the battery that I switched out.

Say, I've always wondered how that affected the viewfinder and exposure. Since the mirror is something like 50% transmission, 50% reflection, is the viewfinder 50% darker than a normal VF, and are exposures automatically overexposed by 1-stop to compensate? It's probably pretty quiet too, eh? No mirror banging around inside would be nice.

Just browsing the camera museum...

0.006 sec shutter lag (6 ms) sure makes the 40-55ms of the current 1-series seem slow.

It lets 2/3 of the light through with 1/3 reflected up, so you lose about 2/3 stop? And you have to worry about dust on the mirror like dust on a sensor :D but man it must be responsive.

The HS is the HighSpeed version. 6fps.
The RS is the SuperHighSpeed version 10fps.
But the big difference : with the RS version the mirror is fixed. And so you lose a few stops.

What?...are you wanting to photograph a juggler or something? Heh heh.

No, just use flash to light an outdoor subject and underexpose the ambient. Every little bit of shutter speed helps when its sunny out.


That second shot is excellent Spazz. It looks like IR except in color.


Gear- Why do you care? If my image is good it's good, if it sucks it sucks. It's most likely my own fault.

It seems like I am getting sharper results at f/2.8 with my 24-70 on the 1ds2 over my 30D. Very minimal sharpening on the file.

Maybe Sigma or Tokina 12-24, maybe Canon 14L, i don't know if Tokina 11-16 or 10-16 is fishy but how much wide do you want to go? I am happy with my Canon 16-35, even i feel it too much wide in most cases and i use 24-105 most of the time then.

heheeh!!! :) im like you...maybe sigma maybe tokina... etc i dont know either which fit which does not and what is it called - hx, dx, c, ip, c2, - no idea! what I want is wide for mounting on a car rig... so im guessing between 12-17mm or so just dont know the manufacturer. I dont wanna pay for the canon 14mm - in case it falls off.... im looking at getting a used 5d for the weight...

Spazz, your ice storm shots are excellent. Too bad that although they make for great photo ops ice storms can cause so much destruction. As for a really wide lens I posted samples from my Sigma 12-24 way back when this had only a few pages of messages, so you can judge for yourself just how close it gets to looking "fishy".
On another note I sold off a 1D2n and 300 F4L IS last week so decided to roll the money into a 5D2 for my trip to Cozumel on the 13th. I hadn't planned on doing that but after a lot of reading think the 5D2 & 1Ds2 is my best 2 body set up for my interests. Time will tell, and FYI I have no interest in the video function.


A skill is developed through constant practice with a passion to improve, not bought.

I posted a shot of Sigma 12-24 on my 1Ds2 also in another thread, it is really very wide, amazing UWA lens.
