On A Limb

Well…I’ve finally gone ahead and moved to a full frame camera with yesterday’s purchase of the Canon 5d MKII – hurrah!

murphyzLaw dictates that it is now a high probability that Canon will announce the MKIII today, that really would not surprise me at all. Still, if they did it would probably just reinforce how much I want the MKII and I’ll be happy anyway.

I’m very much looking forward to playing with this shiny new toy and getting used to it and how it works. As long as I figure out brackets in the immediate instance I’ll be okay.

One thing I have noted is the increase in file size meaning I will get fewer shots on a 16GB card. I wonder if that means I will become more selective with what I shoot? I guess time will tell.

It does mean I’m pretty limited as to which glass I use at the moment as well, as I think it’s only the new addition of the 24-70 and the trusty old nifty fifty which will be fully usable on this new body. Two decent lenses though.

Anyway, back to today. It’s Friday again, already, and this first week back at work has been super busy and has flown by. The shot above was taken from Regent’s Park and is almost straight out of camera with just a few tiny tweaks in post process. As you can see, I wanted quite a lot of negative space in this one.

I hope you all have a great weekend – happy shooting.

  1. Wow, that’s blown the budget. I pity the guys who bought a new Nikon last week and now find there’s a D4 out there. I like minimalism – this works well. Happy shooting.
