Hi all,

I've pulled together a short video of our recent sailing trip in the Whitsundays Australia, all shot on a Canon 5D Mark III.

Although most days were fast and furious, I didn't use any fancy stabilisation gear. I just shot with a tripod attached to the camera and carried it handheld. The inertia of the tripod smoothed the motion of the video footage... quite effective.

Agreed, huge difference between need and want. I also have all the cameras and lenses I need.

I've committed to not buying anything in 2014, at least no material goods. So no new camera gear, no new gadgets, no new clothing. I'm sticking with what I've got. It's helping me focus on what's important to me: my photography, friends and family, sports and travel.

Definitely worth considering Antelope, I was there just before noon and was able to capture the sun streaming in.

The biggest challenge is that at any time when the sun is coming in you have over 200 people in the canyon across 10+ guided groups. I had to take this photo handheld at ISO1600, f2.8 with the 16-35mm II (which I have never found to lack sharpness) as there was absolutely no time or space to put up a tripod.

Suggestion for Grand Canyon: hang around after the sun sets, you may be able to get some great shots with iridescent clouds. When I was there everyone had returned to their hotels just after the sun had set, missing the opportunity for what turned out the best part of the evening.
