    New old batteries - Canon EOS 1Ds MkII

    Thanks Guys! I am not unwilling to buy complete NP-E3 units (genuine Canon of course) over repacking my existing ones but I thought repacking with new cells might be cheaper... Also, more modern replacement cells with higher milliamp hour capacity might also be nice... My concern with buying...

    New old batteries - Canon EOS 1Ds MkII

    Reviving alert! So I recently approached a very good battery place in my home town. Just today they informed me that the available cells are larger than the ones in the NP-E3...so dead end there... Any suggestions? I trawled Fleebay and found a seller who does replacement cells up to...

    Beginner Not being able to shoot in the dark, in manual?

    You could also try the centre AF point as that is mostly the best in terms of accuracy. Find, lock and hold focus with a partially depressed shutter button, recompose and capture.

    Beginner Not being able to shoot in the dark, in manual?

    I am a Canon shooter with a bit of Nikon experience but I don’t know that model. Nikons by and large have very complex menus by comparison and I am taking a stab in the dark that there might be some advanced automatic function somewhere in the menu that might be active. Hopefully some advanced...

    Beautiful image! What lens did you use here?

    Well, it's the lead story on the BBC ..

    This is exactly why you choose to believe...or not. I choose to believe that enough of the Bible remained true that I can live my life by it. I choose to believe that the timeless message in it is the one true way. As for Creation, look around you...life happened. Earth exists with everything...

    Nod, I absolutely agree with you on those points. Thankfully a sufficient portion has remained intact and it has been verified by those in the know (!) Fact is, there is an eternal value to Scripture and neither popular thinking, philosophy nor pseudo-science can explain the Creator out of the...

    Why is it far too recent? Who has kept a daily account for hundreds of years? Who tested these observations? We read books in which clever people tell us how they reckon things should have happened and they base that on the guessing of others. I agree it would take a long time but why could it...

    You are reading it aren't you? Seeing is believing eh what?

    Nope, sorry, we come back to the Bible as the authoritative Scripture. There have been so many divisive teachings built on interpretation over centuries. Any and all "versions" of Christianity are correct provided they are tested against a few basic imperatives and guidlines in Scripture...

    As far as I am aware there is no complete fossil record that can explain everything. If there was it would have been preached far and wide and the evolutionists would no longer have this missing link issue. Before I give you my ideas on fossils, consider the fact that we know precious little of...

    First, I do not approve of the concept of religion...just thought I had to get that one out of the way. "Religion" and the "church" (specifically that organisation based in Italy) has caused more bloodshed and plundering in the name of God over the last two millenia than any other cause I am...

    So how did molecules become organisms? I mean that is rather quite the quantum leap, not so?

    This proof you speak of...can you give me one example that does not, at ANY time involve some leap of faith hanging on to theories based on other theories? Simple really, there is only one Creator. How the poor souls "indoctrinated into the wrong religion" will be dealt with I can't answer but...
