Today, I took over 3 thousand pictures at a rugby tournament....with one 20 20D body w/ Battery grip on a single set of batteries ....and I still had a lot of life in them..........that's pretty darn good!

I suffered sunburn, sore feet legs, arms,...and the right side of my face is a little raw feeling.. aside from that,...the camera surviuved better than I did........and a six pack of Rolling Rock and a pizza rejuvenated me for tomorrow's scoccer tournament...which will be even worse!

I'm pretty happy with the 20D right now.. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I'm hitting the sack early tonight..

Your face may be Raw but I bet your photos were not in RAW unless you had 40 1 GB cards, or a very good system of copying off your shots.
Seriously, what resolution were you shooting at to take 3000 shots?

JP...I don't envy you or your task at hand one bit. I can hardly see myself going through 1/10th of the images trying to sort and tweak them. Good Luck...make sure you have a good supply of caffeine!

Wow, I was considering 20D but still think I need 1D Mark II. I thought this was going to be about Mike Hickey approaching 3000 posts wekk ahead of many for short timer even ahead of Rolando.

I wish my D1X did that. I get about 200 shots with AF on a single battery... at least they recharge fast.

I'm as close as I've ever been to switching to Canon, I've always liked 'em but I started with Nikon so all my stuff's Nikon.

For this event,....all that was necessary was ti make nothing larger than 16x20 prints....so I shot med fine jpg yesterday.. as long as you got your WB and exposure nailed, you can shoot away w/o RAW.. For all my other stuff, I shoot RAW just because it is commercial, and the client may want to have a lot more out of the image than compressed files can offer..

BTW, I shot several series of continous shots and the buffer never filled up to where it had to "slam on the breaks".....the 10D, or D30 OTOH, would have screwed up many great shots... Just the frame rate and lack of noticable shutter lag make this camera so much worth the upgrade from 10D to 20D for anyone shooting action..

LOL...thankfully, I don't have to worry about that... the client just wants the images....and they compensate me for shooting this.. heck,... I just burn them a DVD and and it in along with an invoice.. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I'll go over a few good ones in a few days and post links to the images which will appear in my sports section of my pbase.com/Greco site..

Wow.... no kidding... It's funny, that today for the little league soccer tournament that I had to cover, the other two people who were shooting along side me were using 1Dx bodies.. they both enveyed me! LOL!!

You might be able to get an even trade for a 20D now... I can't believe that Nikon didn't come back with something that can fire off 5fps and have 8mp for only 1,500.00 with the grip by now! Their uipgrades to the D70 are not worth mentioning, and the D50..? Huh? Wha? ......unreal... I hope you have your fingers and toes crossed for the update for the D100..

dang....only 200 shots on a battery... that sucks!

BTW,....every time I see your avitar photo, it just cracks me up..and reminds me of every time I crashed into my boom stand's counterballance weights....which I have done more than once.. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] ..and I'm sure it looked just like that from someone else's view..(watching me look stupid) ....Ooooof.....Ouch!!

Sweet! Now THAT'S what I'd like to have...all the fun of shooting and none of the postproduction crap. You is a Lucky Man!
