Re: M1X has a heat pipe.

Anyone know if this heat pipe is just for the Dual TruePic VIII Image Processors or will it reduce the sensor temperature as well. I am thinking of possible use for long exposure photography where...

Re: Aurora Lights, where?

Similar to milkyway focus to infinity, NR off and RAW but use shutter speed between 5-15 secs. 10 sec is good starting point if the lights are very frisky lower the shutter (5s) if they move slowly...
