A shot of a shot.

Just for fun I decided to upload a picture showing a picture of my 5D taking a picture. It gives a really good idea of how the filters and 5D is processing the image.

I have no idea now the iPhone is claiming the exposure figures that it is as they simply don’t seem to add up when compared with the 5D. Then again maybe I had a 10 stop filter on.

Canon 5D Mark 2

After being without a camera for over a month I thought I’d never get a 5D mark 2. Trying to track one down was a nightmare. In the end I found one locally at Walch Optics, thanks guys. 🙂

So how does it go? Well so far I could only test in overcast poor lighting, but I must say that the color reproduced is amazing. That coupled with the full use of EF lenses like the 16-35L makes for awsome sharp shots that are actually “wide” with fantastic color and higher ISO’s including ISO 3200 is perfectly usable.

More shots to come over the weekend with some good weather predicted…. 🙂

Waiting for the 5D mark 2

Mt Wellington Rocks in Snow

It’s a good thing I don’t have a camera at the moment, because the weather has been shocking in Hobart over recent weeks. Weeks of overcast skies and rain. Is summer really here?

My 5d Mark 2 is on order and I can’t wait for it to arrive, finally some full frame goodness 🙂 I can’t wait to see the results using the 16-35L to it’s full potential, 24mm on a 1.6x body is just not the same.

The above picture was taken on my old 40D with the 16-35mm L.

I’m expecting big things Mr Canon….
