In Topic: Insurance Quotes After a Flood

I had to make a claim with H20 Ins earlier this year. I just faxed them a stack of retail printouts that I pulled off the internet and a few pictures of the loss....Of course the pictures I sent them showed my camera swimming away in a large tiger sharks mouth, never to be seen again.......Once they realized that I wasen't joking about how the camera was lost they sent me a check right away.....My hats off to H20 Insurance

Despite Max Mosley's best efforts to give Ferrari another championship, Hamilton pull's it off in the last corner of the last race.....A true champion and he seems like such a nice guy too....Congrats Lewis

In Topic: 1DSIII * focus question

03 August 2008 - 03:32 PM


Try this: Go to C. Fn IV.....switch C. Fn IV #1 from 0 to #2 which reads "metering star/meter + AF Start" then hit the set button..... then go to C. Fn IV #2 and switch the "AF-ON/AE lock button Switch" from disable to Enable and push the set button....I have been using mine like this for a few months and I think thats all that is required to use the * button W/O the shutter re-focusing.... if it dosent work let me know and i'll keep looking in my menu....

Hello !

i've just traded my old 1dII (housing and cam still for sale btw) for a 1dsmk3 in a seacam housing.
I really love this new cam on land, and i'm flying to the indian ocean in a few days to try the underwater setup

i have been used to * focus and then use the shutter just to take the photo, but on the mk3 camera,

When I set it to use the * button for focus, the focus function on shutter isn't deactivated, and the camera will sometimes re-focus when I recompose and press the shutter. THis might be very annoying for manual focusing.

i am sure i have set up something wrong ^_^
what are your C FN settings for this ?
