Hello and Welcome!
Hello and welcome everybody on our new photoblog! We're going to post about everything we interested within the world of photography. So check back soon and you'll find tests, news, workflow descriptions and many more!
I'm sure nobody reads my words, but I'd like to share two things with you:
1) my new Canon 5D Mark III arrived today morning along with a spare battery and unfortunately I couldn't get the new axe in my hand, As I'm abroad, we will be able to meet on Sunday the soonest.
2) I had two interesting shoots the past weekend a family shooting and teen girl (of the family) It was really fun to do, but was so hard to do well. You can see a whole family gallery under the family tag, and I'm going post the girly ones from today on. The first one is outta now!
I haven't been here for a while, I had a lot to do and you can see some of the results here at fotofabrik. During the last two weeks Canon released the successor of its most popular camera, the EOS 5D Mark III. It isn't a big secret that more than six years ago I was a Nikon user, and my first Canon camera was the original 5D. I moved to Canon because they were offering full frame sensor at a reasonable price and I heard the news that Nikon won't follow them. I decided to switch and now we have two racers in the 5D market segment: Nikon D800 and the new 5D Mark III.
Both manufacturers offer full frame sensors and Nikon has outpaced Canon by offering huge resolution with a 36 MP sensor. I know there are many photographers and tech journalist testing, comparing the devices, writing long reviews without having the new cameras, so I won't do anything like that. I just wanted tell you that I'm not going to switch back to Nikon just to have higher resolution. Honestly, I was considering to do that, 'cause it would be great to have a 1,5x higher resolution camera for the studio works, but changing the whole gear does not make real sense to me.
In my point of view there can be many things more important than resolution, e.g. massive ISO performance, because a photographer's biggest enemy is the lack of light.
The new 5D is much more expensive than the Mark II was, and whatever causes the higher price tag, I'm pretty sure that they will sell it at that price.
So, as I mentioned in the title, I've ordered it from Calumet (www.calumetphoto.de) and they confirmed the delivery for early April.
From Canon Japan
Just take a look at the high ISO image. It delivers more at ISO6400 than my current 5D II on ISO3200!
Ahh, it was amazing, but I did not have time to process it. I had some work to do in München (Munich) and suddenly I found myself in the middle the Farschang (Carneval) holiday celebration. I met Darth Vader, Zorro and many others. People was wearing funny suits, I was the only one exception in the streets, wearing ordinary clothes. Police rounded the inner City and people were celebrating each other, playing music, beating the drums, and... of course: drinking beer. Next time I will prepare myself for the occasion and shoot some more. My farschang suit will be: Black Duck from the "What the Duck" toons.
