Great capture, New camera, very good reviews. I went and got and oldie "1D" kept reading a lot about that old 4.1 meg camera that when I had a chance to get it for just over $600, I bid and won it on ebay. Hopefully within a week or two I will be able to post some photos with it. Will find out if all the tales are true. #5046117
