Missus and myself went to have a look of the second hand 1D available in the shop...
The 1D Mk3 priced nearly the same as the brand new one... out
1D Classic.... nah
1Ds Mk II is out of the price range neither.
Then there is this 1D MkII N....
Unfortunately the battery only have minimal charge and it only allows less than 5 mins play around.
I thought it would be fairly straight forward to use (consider I can close my eye and navigate thru the general setting correctly on my 500D) I would have thought it just a slightly changes on the 1D with extra buttons to make life easier....
I tried for couple of minute to do basic setting and then I look like a total tool in front of the guy who was serving me
So I have to ask him kindly to show me how to use it....
Fortunately he's a nikonian and it takes him another 30 seconds or so to found out what is what So I don't feel too bad at this stage.
Anyway, I was just about to start playing with it, I nav. thru the menu items and it has a lot more to choice from, and the setting I am familiar has break down to much more detail fine tuning
And just before I can start taking a pic or 2 to try -- battery run out
I have return the camera to the gent's hand and I said to him I will come back later and thanked for his kind service.
This 1D thing is 1 scary beast to control, but I am excited
