Does anyone know whether NP-E3 will work with PB-E2 for the 1V?

Thanks for the reply. Do you know the difference between NP-E2 and NP-E3? NP-E3 is the 12V battery for the 1Ds.

NP-E3 cant fit into the PB-E2 and NP-E2 cant fit too into the 1D/1Ds grip

both are of different sizes since 1D breath is bigger than 1v

My EOS1V has this problem:
taking a photo in dark light conditions - with center AF point and ONE SHOT mode selected - the camera brings into focus the subject, but with the AI SERVO mode - in the same light conditions and still with center AF point selected - it doesn't bring into focus the subject.

For your information the lens that I used is the 17-40L f4; I tryed a 24-70L f2,8 without any result.

Do you have any idea why this happens?

Thank you for your help.
Best Regards.
Corrado.

Hi Corrado,

Just to eliminate one possibility in case you happen not to have mentioned that you're using flash, but if you have a flash unit mounted then it will fire the AF assist light in one-shot mode but not in AI servo.

Hi Mike,
many thanks for your suggestion but unfortunately this isn't my case.
Do you have any other idea??
Bye

Hi Corrado,

The only thing I can think of that might explain the difference is that in AI Servo mode the camera tries to maintain a lock, whereas in One Shot the lock only has to be achieved once. If the lighting conditions are marginal then it may not be possible to keep the lock in AI mode, but by scanning over the subject you can just about get a lock in One Shot. I haven't noticed this myself, but then again in really dim lighting I tend to resort to flash.

One way to confirm whether this explanation is correct would be to try for a lock in One Shot mode and see how long it takes for the camera to confirm the lock. If you have to hunt around for more than a second or so, then the chances of being able to hold the lock in AI mode are pretty slim.

Hi.
Has anyone experimented atofocus problems using the 24/70 f2,8 (and/or the 16/35 f2,8) with the EOS 1V body?

My experience is:
setting the Zoom between 24 and 35 (or 16 and 24) and trying to focus a subject placed at an "infinite" point, if you use the 45 autofocus points (automatic selection) usually the autofocus procedure terminates indicating a distance less than "infinite".

May be that such lenses, designed thinking to DIGITAL bodies, are incompatible with the EOS1V body?

Many thanks in advance for your help.
Bye
Corrado
