    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?

    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...

    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...

    All ancient cultures agree on a huge flood that is in line with the Biblical account of the great flood at the time of Noah. Would you call it completely impossible that fossils date from this era? Ahh yes...carbon 14 dating etc etc. Good thing carbon 14 dating has been proven faultless too...

    OK, I'll bite... But, to be clear, am I correct in saying that evolution started when the first marine micro-organism evolved into something that was able to crawl out of the primordial oceans and carry on evolving on dry land? By this logic mammals, insects, reptiles and a few others must all...

    Nikon d850 "in development"

    So with the D850 all you need is a nice sharp prime no longer than 100mm...simply crop to simulate anything up to 800mm?:D

    Best I can do for now, guys... This is me on last year's Karoo to Coast...this is about 85km or so into the 96km ride. Entering a nasty 90 degrees + right hand downhill leading to the last short sharp kick-in-the-nuts climb before the finish... Bike is a 2014 Merida aluminium full suspension...

    Both sides of this coin have many questions that can not be answered but where is the proof for evolution? I have many ideas about fossils. The difference between my ideas and the ideas of the clever people is purely the number of letters I write behind my name. I have little to no regard for...

    Well, since you asked, I believe that we are a Divine creation as per the Biblical account and not the result of a big bang, evolution or any other similar fancy conjecture. I believe that we are being lied to about pretty much everything but that is of little consequence to me. No, I am not a...

    It all depends what you choose to believe, really... If you really believe that we live on a little spinning rock that hurtles through space at mind boggling speed you probably believe that men really walked on the moon too. I choose to believe differently.
