Street & City / a Small town in the Karoo, called Vosburg...

EOS Bodies / Eos7D mk2, How disappointed will you be if . . .?
« on: July 07, 2014, 10:20:43 AM »
it has the same sensor as the Eos70D but with just more bells & whistles?

I have a sneaky feeling that maybe its going to be the same image quality as the 70D just more robust, full frame viewfinder, gazillion frames per second, wifi, gps and class leading video...So just how disappointed will you be if that is the case?

Lets face it the Sony sensors are pretty good, if not class leading, probably as good as it's going to get at the moment, so just why will Canon have such better sensor technology as Sony's? Nothing in the recent history of Canon sensor technology suggests otherwise...

If, and its a big if, they bring out a ID mkIV size sensor it will be great, but maybe its also an indication that they just could not squeeze out anymore image quality with their R&D at present....which begs the question then why they don't just buy Sony sensors? Would anybody mind a Sony sensors in  Eos bodies?

EOS-M / How crazy is this?
« on: June 12, 2014, 10:44:28 AM »
I have been using my M as a back up mostly, but lately have been exploring video, and I quite like what the M can do, of course always keeping the very good prices in mind as part of the equation!  I only have the 22mm and have been thinking of getting the standard zoom and an extra battery. My last attempt through Amazon was unsuccessful. So, over here the discounted price of the Eos M, with zoom and flash is the same price as the standard zoom I just bought the package, got a new battery and the IS zoom plus a spare body & crazy is that? Makes me think Canon must be losing quite a bit of money in their efforts to get rid of the Eos M stock.

Not too keen to get more of the existing M bodies but I have faith a new body with EVF will be released sometime in the future, maybe even before the megapixel dslr body - which means we could be in for a long, long, long wait...

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Eos 6D & GPS is just Great!
« on: March 05, 2014, 04:40:57 AM »
When I bought my 6D towards the end of last year I thought the build in GPS feature was just another gimmick. But after activating it and seeing all the info now just one click away in Lightroom4, I actually regard it as a 'must have' for any travel photographer. I recently traveled to Cape Town and also Plettenberg Bay on the Garden route. I can now go back and precisely see where each photograph was made and things like streets & towns and minor roads are now easy to identify. My wife is now also spared her tedious travelling duties of jotting down in my notebook each and every location, plus a description, of where I stopped and photographed!

Shown here an owl that we spotted in atree just outside our restaurant on Thesen Island in the  Knysna Lagoon and the exact position where I stood, clearly shown on the map.

Camera Body Gallery / 6D does the Garden Route of South Africa
« on: March 05, 2014, 04:22:05 AM »
My wife and I spend a weekend in Plettenberg Bay on The Garden Route. At least one can swim in the sea here as opposed to Cape town where the water is bitterly cold! The landscapes are just as dramatic as Cape town but it was out of season and the large crowds, now a permanent feature of Cape Town, are thankfully absent here in the Garden route.

Landscape / Two weeks in Cape Town - a photographers paradise!
« on: January 17, 2014, 01:21:37 AM »
From a photographers perspective Cape town must have it all. Landscapes, cityscapes, 'THE MOUNTAIN', super friendly people, wine, beaches all within half an hours drive. I just got my new 6D at the end of last year and it was just perfect.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / My new 6D, Two weeks in Cape Town, a Review
« on: January 16, 2014, 09:15:45 AM »
I got my 6d in Novemer last year. I traveled through the Karoo for a week and then spend two weeks in Cape Town over the December & January holidays. Over this three week period I took thousands of landscapes, people & travel photographs. My first impressions and review regarding the image quality & what it can do at high ISO, of this awesome 'smaller' dslr  can be seen here at . . .

I got a new 85mmf1.8 to go with my, also new, 6D, and yesterday I took a stroll down two streets in downtown Pretoria. to test the is combination and see how it would work in the type of location that I usualy lookout for...more images and info can be seen here at . . .
