EOS Bodies / Re: Big Announcements Coming Next Week [CR3]
« on: Today at 12:52:19 AM »
I am curious about the naming of those 2 high MP cameras and their position in the DLSR line-up.

Personally I am not interested in either one of those cameras. And not interested in the 11-24 f/4. The 16-35 f/4 serves me well. However I am interested in the EOS M3 and it's specs and performance compared to the M2

I don't have experience with Ice sculptures so you gave me some valuable information, thanks! So I could take the 16-35mm I still wonder about the f/4 aperture......

Considering the fact that your subjects aren't moving, you should wonder more about the 4-stop IS that the f/4.
Plus, I would always take a wide angle lens in a crowded event. Sometimes you'd need to back up so much with a standard lens (especially a prime) to capture your entire frame that you can't avoid dozens of people coming between you and your subject.

The IS is really helpful in case you can't setup the tripod. And, the f/4 wasn't the issue. I could have used wider than 35mm but only in the beginning of my photoshoot. I guess I may have missed some interesting compositions because of that. A lesson learned for the next time.

So......I went to the Ice sculptures exhibition to take some photos. As I said this was my first time.
We entered the exhibiton at the start of the opening hour.
It was very cold inside (minus 8 Celcius) ...ha! But I was prepared for that. Wintercoat, special gloves (thumb and forefinger were free to control the camera) etc.

I took a tripod, my 6D , an extra battery, extra memorycard, my 35mm f/2 IS and a CPOL filter.
Focal length of 35mm was a good choice. I could used it in most situations. The f/2 was great although I used a lot f/5.6.   

The first hour it was not so crowded. So it was possible to use a tripod. However I choose not to use it but choose to stress the IS of my 35mm. I did not use the CPOL. I played a bit with the composition, metering, aperture and so on.
After one hour it was time to warm up. So I went out to drink a cappucino and inspect my first photo results. Darn, this small LCD screen and my reading glasses

After I warmed up I went back into the exhibition area. But slowly it started to be very crowded. Working with a tripod was not really possible anymore.
And everybody was taking photos. Sounds logical eh? Meaning you have to wait, move around etc.
Just 45 minutes later it was time to go. I had enough of the cold. Besides that I was looking forward to inspect my photos at home on the big screen.

It was fun and I hope to have an opportunity for the next time so I can improve my skills.
