Flashback (December 18, 2008): New Camera


Okay, so I was a lazy blogger over the last year or so and I have decided to flashback on a few events in no particular order.

This one was a key event for my photography. I had been using a Canon 20D camera over the last four years or so. It was a great camera, and I took some amazing shots with it, but over time I grew to know it's limitations all too well. The main problems to me were the flaky autofocus and crop sized sensor. I admired the 5D from afar for quite some time and envisioned myself going after the successor to it. Well, the successor came, and though an amazing camera, I wasn't blown away by the new features enough to sink that much cash into it. My decision therefore was to get a good condition used 5D instead.

This like new condition beauty came from KEH, and as far as I can tell it was never even used.

Taking advantage of this being a "flashback" post, I can tell you that I am utterly amazed by this camera. I was worried it would take some time to adjust my style to fit the full framed camera, but it came so naturally and I can't imagine ever going back to a crop sensor.

Even my kids prefer posing in front of the 5D :-)
Aren't Light Meters Fun?
