5D MK3 and 24-105L in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
« on: May 30, 2012, 05:06:18 PM »
It was a tough choice as to deciding which single lens to take to Cabo San Lucas.  I had to travel very light.  I opted for the very versatile 24-105 and was pleasantly surprised at the amount you can crop without losing IQ.  Normally I would shoot bird pics with a 7D and 400mm L to get that razor sharp closeup.  However take a look at the crop on this bird shot cropped from 5760x3840 down sampled to 1768x1777.  Mistakenly, I had shot the whole trip in L JPG not RAW.  So the bird shot is a JPG of a JPG.  Shooting some of these landscape scenes at 24mm was excellent as again there was plenty to crop away without losing IQ.  I will say in the darker areas (not here) I did notice some banding that folks speak of.  Fortunately there weren't many of those shots.  Note the last photo of the villager playing guitar was shot at ISO 3200..most impressive IQ.

It looks like some of those shots were taken while being out on the water.

What steps do you take to protect your camera while out on a boat from moisture and salt?

I didn't have the camera out very long and only took a handful of shots.  During 95% of the journey the camera was in a Canon Bag which was inside a travel bag.  From what I recall the 5D is sealed fairly well so didn't have too much concern there.
Thanks
