What rocks? The 40D, that’s what.
Firstly, if everyone would do me a favor… I have three photos in the current theme contests at JPG Magazine. If you’d take a minute to go there, register, and vote for my shots, I would greatly appreciate it. But only vote if you truly think they rock.
You should just have to click on each one of the photos to vote for it. Let me know if you voted!
I also have a couple things on eBay at the moment. If you’re in the market, check out the links below!
In other news:
My apprentice, Eva, came over yesterday with her new Canon EOS 40D, and I must say, that little thing kicks ass. I’m used to shooting with a Mark II and I’m pretty sure that the action on the 40D is even faster. It pops off a frame really quickly.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that the 40D cranks out more FPS than the Mark II. I’m saying that it reacts and finishes off a frame just as quickly if not more quickly than the Mark II does. I was actually taken aback when I tripped the hair trigger and it popped off two frames before I could even take my finger off the button.
And, it produces a hell of an image too. I only had time to pop out into my front yard with it, but when faced with a difficult metering situation, like a shaded yard against a sunlit street, it did pretty damned well. Example photos are forthcoming.
