Re: I Shall Return

Hi, I ran a few test shots on the D80 and it looks pretty good. We have a heron that was born on our pond a couple years ago and he is frequently here. So, he showed up and let me shoot him with the 70-300mm second lens I bought to go with the D80. I did wind up taking the two batteries into my elec...

Re: I Shall Return

Hi, You mean the Sony CCD? The D1 and the D1H used it with four photosites per pixel for 2.7MP. The D1X used it with two photosites per pixel for 5.3 MP. This also meant that the D1X had rectangular pixels rather than square. The D200 and the D80 used it with one photosite per pixel for 10.2 MP. The...

Re: I Shall Return

Hi, Well, it arrived and seems to work OK. Just not for long. Sad Battery Syndrome. So, some new battery packs are on order. We didn't get enough shooting to tell much, just enough to evaluate the camera operation. Also, enough to know she likes it (whew). And....that she already wants a second, lon...

Re: D2 battery code

Hi, With the way Li-Ion batts like to go -poof-, I am surprised they don't use the little clocks to code it down to the hour..... Some makers use Monday to start the week, some Sunday, hence the unknown there. Most makers run seven days a week, and usually two or three shifts a day. Nikon isn't maki...

Re: D2 battery code

Hi, Hmmmm. I will hazard a guess based on many other things which use date codes. The M would indicate the year, the 48 the week of the year, and the B the day of the week. The 48 is easy, the B would be Monday or Tuesday (depending on which day they use to begin their week). It is the M that I have...

Re: I Shall Return

Hi, I don't think they are related sensors. There was a lot of jumping about back then. Different in each camera there for a while. In fact, it was a surprise when Nikon went back to the Sony CCD when it happened. By then, most had switched away from CCD to CMOS. I knew of the photosite vs pixel lay...

Re: I Shall Return

Hi, The sensor in the D200 and the D80 is the same base unit used in the D1, D1H and D1X bodies. So, it isn't just a CCD I was after, it was the fourth iteration of that specific CCD I want to mess with. Plus, it may well get my wife into this whole hobby. The D1 sensor was a 10 MP unit, but the sig...

Re: Making a DSU from scratch for an orphan DCS100

Hi,

Sure. But, I have no idea what that board you mentioned is. It does sound like a fun project, though.

Re: I Shall Return

Hi, OK, time to try again. Just won a D80 with an 18-135mm lens and goodies for $160 USD. So, we shall see if my wife likes this one when it gets here. Plus, I get to see just what the guys at Sony had manged to make that original DSLR CCD design do in the end. Next up: dig up an AFS 80-200 f2.8D zo...

Re: I Shall Return

Hi, Well, the D1H works just fine. Took me a few minutes to recall just how it operated. It has been awhile. I was wrong about my flash unit. It is an SB28d, not a dx. For the F5 based 760. Makes sense. I probably won't use the D1H with a flash anyway. The original thought was for my wife. I rarely ...

Re: I Shall Return

Hi, Well, the best laid plans and all that. The D1H came to the screenprinting shop today. It'll have to wait until I get home to check it out, but my wife doesn't like it because it is too large a body. So, cancel out looking for a D1X for her. I am now looking for a D80. I did finally manage to fi...

Re: I Shall Return

Hi, Yes, I don't think I will have to wait long before I spot the D1X I want. I have already decided to couple the D1H to an AFS 80-200 f2.8D lens and use it at the road courses like I used to. More on that later. What prompted all this is we finally bought a Direct-To-Garment printer for the screen...

Re: I Shall Return

Hi,

So, most of the D1X units out there right now are being offered by camera shops. They take pics of the units, but not one of them includes even one pic taken with the thing. They just say 'it works'. It seems only individuals figure buyers might want to see how the imager is working.
