Indoor Skydiving: iFly
« on: April 16, 2013, 08:49:29 PM »
Apparently iFly was on NikonRumors and got sick of it and sold all their gear and switched to Canon  ;D ;D ;D

Seriously though . . .

I took my boy to iFly (indoor skydiving) and saw the canon camera behind the glass.

They had the benefit of front-lighting, I was fighting that light from the back (won't know until I get home how well I did since I'll have to post-process for the lighting).

Bought a pic as a hedge against my still growing skills with the Tamron 24-70; I was mostly paying for the curiosity of the exif . . .

THAT said, I got what I wanted for $4: 
They're using a 50D w/ 10-22mm. 

Glass/plexiglass is truly my nemesis; I hate seeing my fat arse in the dang image ;)  I had both of my high-end filters, which DID NOT fit my lens (did I mention I'm still learning on the Tamron?) . . .

I'm going to scrutinize the image when I get home, but it was ISO 1600 and I was at 6400 with the 5DmkII, so wish me luck
Canon Rumors is presently creating photographer shortages in Middle Earth (all the trolls emigrated here)
