    Pretty much what has been said is all there is to say, but if it were me.....1N RS all the way. Plus with the power booster it looks like my 5D

    They wouldn't be any use to me, it takes me all my time to think at one frame a second.

    My EOS 3 had no issue at all. Cosmetically it tells 'used' but functions perfectly.

    I know what you mean. I've never bothered. I took the grip off my 1V when I bought it and have only ever used it once since then.

    The NP-E2 batteries for the 1v are NiMH not NiCad.
    These same batteries were retained for the I & II series of the 1D/ 1Ds but the use a different end cap.

    I do seem to remember NiCads were used in earlier high consumption applications but I may be thinking of Nikon.

    Okay, appears there was a NiCad for the earlier PB (Power Booster E1)
    And the PB-E2 takes the NiMH.
    The "BP" are battery packs that do not increase frame per second but allow choice between AA's and 2CR5

    This has always bewildered me and caused much confusion.

    Seems some vertical buttons are also absent from the earlier versions.

    The 1N RS has a non-removable booster which takes NiCads (don't work any more) or 8 AAs at full speed 10fps.

    You are correct, the BP-E2 takes NiMH. 6 fps is fast enough I would think
