Thanks again, guys! I showed my friend the 12X18 print of #2 last night. Of course, he loved it & wanted an image to use as his Wallpaper.
IMO it's nice, but suffers from being 30% of the pic area & it's not needle sharp. I give it an 7/10. Maybe 1/1000 sec would have been better than 1/640. These little buggers are FAST & that one spent as much time going up & down as he did going forward! It probably drove the autofocus nuts! ;)
Possible problem I see is if I try shooting with a 1.4TC. I was shooting that one with the right focus point & the 300D needs a lower row of focus points to include more of the water spray.

Pretty much the only thing that ticks me off right now is the lack of partial/spot metering in the 300D. I feel that it hampers my ability to actually know what I'm exposing. That and a dim viewfinder.

Other than that... I love the camera. The ISO issue doesn't concern me at all... even at 3200. Autofocus - I don't have the glass and interest to shoot moving subjects.

Lenses, lightmeter and studio first... Then I'll get something fullframe with weather sealing.

Doc, if you won't be shooting moving subjects, why would you feel the need for spot metering? Won't you have time to shoot a gray card for a "M" exposure?

EDIT - Here's a simpler way that works well for me: For a good starting point, first set the f-stop & shutter speed you need for the
effect you want. Then the other parameter: f-stop or shutter speed. Then adjust the ISO.

Have another look at page 84 of the instruction manual, along with page 78.

It's one of the most poorly-explained capabilities of the camera, but it's there. And I have found many situations where the * button is my friend. :)

Thanks, guys!
Maybe there's some alcohol in the nitro & "Miss Budweiser" is just a bit tipsy?
