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 . . . http://thelazytravelphotographer.blogspot.com/2014/01/my-canon-eos-6d-review-part-1-image.html

Camera Body Gallery / In Milan...Street photography with the 'old' 5D2
« on: September 05, 2013, 10:23:48 AM »
I spend three days in Milan using mostly my 5D2 paired with the 24-105L. Its actually quite a nice travel combo if full frame image quality is what you want. As a street tool its probably too heavy and bulky and that old shutter is very very loud..but that's all I had and sometimes I think we fuss too much about this and that and what we have will probably work perfectly...more of my street images made in Milan can be seen here at....http://thelazytravelphotographer.blogspot.com/2013/09/three-days-in-milanday-one.html

Portrait / One thing led to another...
« on: August 22, 2013, 10:37:54 AM »
I stopped in small town called Greylingstad yesterday on my way to photograph a coal mine. It was early morning and the light was great. I stopped to photograph an old house , the owner came out and said hi, and I asked if I could photograph her. She said yes. When she saw the image on screen she asked if she could show her mother and invited me inside. We waited in the kitchen while her mother got dressed and I made another photo of her there. this is the one I like most ....more images from my short stopover in Greylingstad here at...http://thelazytravelphotographer.blogspot.com/2013/08/greylingstad.html

Yesterday I stopped for a few minutes in a small town called Greylingstad. The light was good and there was some interesting structures. I was on my way to photograph a coal mine and could spare only a few minutes so I just grabbed my Eos M and as it happened the 40mm pancake was attached...more images and info here at...http://thelazytravelphotographer.blogspot.com/2013/08/greylingstad.html

EOS-M / Portraiture with Eos M & Ef 50mm f1.8...a Short Review
« on: August 06, 2013, 11:49:07 AM »
There have been quite  few readers wondering how the 'plastic' 50mm f1.8 lens handles on the Eos M. Well I took a couple of portraits with this lens and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. At 80mm it is almost perfect with no perspective distortion as opposed to the 40mm pancake...my write up can be viewed here at....http://thelazytravelphotographer.blogspot.com/2013/08/canon-eos-m-ef-50mm-f18-short-review.html
