It was a bit tricky at first, but now that I've got it down, I find it much faster to do. Not as fast as an F5, mind you, which is much less tricky, but fast enough. I can see how it would work with the camera tilted up, but it would take some practice, I'm sure. I really like that the camera advances automatically when you close the back with the winder. That's one thing I really liked on the F5 too that the EOS1n didn't have. (At least I've never seen that function happen on an EOS). ========= Eric Welch St. Joseph, MO God is REAL, unless explicitly declared INTEGER.
