Panic Time

Well, I did it. Didn't mean to when I went out today, but I did. We went to Leicester and I needed some photo paper and went to Jacobs. After coffee and much umming and arring from me. We went back and I'm now the proud owner of a Canon 1D MkIII
I couldn't get them to lower the price, but did get an extra battery thrown in by a bit of bartering.
Will post later when I've had a play.

Waaaahaaaaaaay!

I'd suggest a party around your house, Sarah, but you've probably got no cash left!

We must have uploaded at the same time Still fine tuning the autofocus, so many settings!!! Whippets are a bit tricky as they run fast and bob up and down, cycling is a bit easier.

Re: Panic Time

Yes, very. It's easier to set up and use than I thought. Similar buttons to 40D and menu layout easy to get where you want to be. Feels nice in the hand, good and solid and comfortable to hold. Heavy, but not ridiculously so. Obviously the heaviest is with my 100-400, but I can still hold it ok.
Lots of auto focus settings, so still fine tuning, but everything else set.

Re: Panic Time

I'm going out on Wednesday to our club 10, so am going to try different ISO tests, so I'll upload some for you. The finish is always quite low light, so it will give it a good test.
