What exactly is a light leak?
This is Southwell Minster in Nottinghamshire, England, a building that has some incredibly old architecture, especially in the nave section of the church where it dates from about 1140. A bit of historical trivia: this was where King Charles I was captured at the end of the English Civil War.
Might have been nicer is your shots were sharp. The bark images look soft to me
Do any Canon cameras (or any other manufacturers' cameras for that matter) have an option to provide the user with the hyperfocal distance for the camera's current lens focal length and F-stop settings? I would find this to be a useful function, and even better if the camera could, on operator command, set the lens to the hyperfocal distance (don't know if lenses are sufficiently calibrated to allow for this). If a smart phone app can calculate the hyperfocal distance, I see no reason why the camera manufacturers couldn't program their cameras to do it.
A couple of weeks ago I had driven up to Palomar Mt to catch the sunrise. Unfortunately I drove through all the clouds on the way up but the fog sitting atop Lake Henshaw made up for it as the sun rose.
I am basing this on my experience with the A7r EVF, which is decent, but far from great. I could ALWAYS feel the lag, even when it was performing at it's best...and at worst, it was horrible. Stutter and tearing and lag so bad that you couldn't really even tell what was being framed until you stopped moving the camera and let it "settle" and work through whatever the hell was causing the issue in the first place. That was really annoying. It was disruptive to me just being able to do photography. I find that entirely unacceptable, and is one of the key reasons I did not buy an A7r on the spot. (The other was the body...too freakin tiny, even though I don't think that would matter as much for an on-tripod landscape camera...I still did not like the ergos.)
