hey,

The other day I was reading a magazine, and they had a bunch of cameras in an add and they were explaining the difference etc. I noticed that the nikon what..d200? has the fps of 5, but next to that it said..the 1D mark II(one of them) had a continuous drive up too...8.5? I was like "hmm alright" I went online eariler to check out the 1Ds and 5Ds etc, cause I wanted to know a little bit more about them and i noticed none of the continuous drives had 8.5fps. could i have it confused with something esle? or was the ad wrong?

explain? =X

=)

The 1D IIN has 8.5 fps. The 1Ds II has 4 fps. The 1D II is a faster camera for the photojournalist, but with an 8 MP sensor that's about 18x27 mm; the 1Ds II has a full 24 x 36 mm sensor, and is more geared for studio work.

General rule: do not go by any specifications given in an ad. Check them out yourself by going to the manuf. site or other sites.
