I made a pretty-immensly-hugely-excitingly-expensive purchase a couple of days ago, and this was the first shot I took with it…
Oh my god, I still can’t believe it’s mine!
Perfect timing too as the very next day I met the lovely Leonie in Winchester who was just one step behind me in making the same purchase, so we geeked out with our cameras in the cathedral and decided that yes, it truly was an awesome camera!
To cut a long and nerdy story short – most comsumer dSLR cameras have a ‘cropped sensor’. In old money this would be the equivilent of being made to use 110 film in your 35mm camera. Now though, I have a full-frame sensor so all my lenses are being used to their full potential – they’re wider, more colourful and just generally awesome!
I’m forcing myself to read the manual. I’m not a ‘read the manual’ sort of person but I am feeling motivated by the possibilities that this camera’s going to bring – especially the thought of creating full HD video to create moving photographs!
They filmed the season finale of House using this camera, you know!
