On my travel holiday the last 18 months I spend a lot of time with my Canon 400D and 4 different lenses. Now, back in Germany, a time where I want to become more professional and less semi professional I definitely needed to think about about a new camera. So I bought the new Canon 5D Mark II with 21 mbpx and told myself while giving my VISA Card to the guy behind the desk in the shop:”I need this camera, I will take more pictures. I will take so many pictures, I know I will. “This conversation with my guilty conscience I had before when buying equipment for my camera and it didn’t turn out the way it supposed to be in terms of taking more pictures. Well, now, since I have this new camera its incredible exciting, how much MORE fun I have taking pictures. The 5D MK II is so easy to handle and finally brings me the quality of pictures I am looking for. Sharp pictures first of all. For sure one reason is that my lenses can now proof their qualities, since the 5D MK II is a full format chip camera. My Canon 400D wasn’t and all my lenses were cropped with a factor of 1.6. Means: My 28mm ƒ1.8 turned into a 44,8mm (28×1.6). Now I get even better results and feel ready to shoot Barack Obama, Mickey Mouse and other well known politicians. Additional to my camera I equipped myself with a light system by Bowens. I can finally play with light and learn more, more, more and more again. Awesome. Lucky I am to have the time since I don’t have any jobs. *blink* *blink*. Some results you see in earlier posts below this one.
To be out there every single day (I like that expression) is definitely more fun now with good stuff to work with.
