United States / Alabama tornado damage pictures
« on: May 08, 2011, 01:28:51 AM »
Not strictly Canon related, but I wanted to post some pictures I took of a neighborhood close to me that got hit by one of the EF-5 tornadoes.  I have friends that live in the same neighborhood, but they were a little luckier than others.  I haven't been on much because the power was off for a week and I left town for a while.

As I was volunteering, I didn't really want to go in with my 7D.  Not only this, but police were patrolling constantly in tornado hit areas watching for looters and people who weren't owners or helping with relief.  So I just took these with my cell phone camera.  The captions offer some additional insight.

I also took footage from my home during the tornado and cut a video from it.  The scenes in the beginning are pretty noisy, but I had to crank it to ISO 6400 to get a decent picture:

EOS Bodies / Stronger body?
« on: April 12, 2011, 03:42:49 PM »
For those worried about how much a body can hold up, or just want a good laugh (or a cry), I've posted the videos below.  When he started using the cameras for shoes, I thought it couldn't get any worse... but it did.

Despite the broken front lens on the Canon, the picture quality is still a champ.

Site Information / What originally brought you to canon rumors?
« on: April 03, 2011, 11:43:31 PM »
Hey all,

I thought this would be a fun way to get to know everyone a little bit more.  I would ask, "What originally brought you to Canon Rumors?"  What lens, body, or other whispering were you hoping to get the latest news on?

Originally, my obsession was the 5D mk III.  I originally got into DSLRs for video, but since perusing this site (all too often), I have become interested in all aspects of photography.

I'm still very interested to see what the next 5D will bring, but enjoy the Lens forum much more than before.  Now (I must admit) there are a good number of L lenses I have to have.
