The jury is still out on whether to congratulate you or hurl abuse in a fit of jealousy tbh. I think I'll cover both bases with;

Awesome shot you homo.

[edit] as a 450D user and wannabe 5dmk2 user I'm interested to know what are the main differences you've found are. Is it really that much better?

exif data fail!

What was the ISO? Is the noise and colour banding in the sky at the top a result of exporting? (ie is the RAW like that?)

Much post-processing?

Yeah great shot though. Ace foreground detail. May be worth going up a couple of stops to reduce the vignetting, if possible... although tough in the dark I know. Still, could test that huge forced ISO out :D



v nice m8


Edit: exeeeeeeeeeeeef

Would like to see it at f/6 or thereabouts... maybe try 200/400 iso? all supposed to be ace!

First and most obvious difference is it's twice the weight and size. The 450D is kinda manageable stupidly large, this thing is a monster.

The control method is also a bit gimpy and less intuitive than the 450 imo, but that's pretty superficial stuff.

Imo you just get a much better performance on low light stuff, which is where most of my stuff comes from.

When i have a better experience using it i'll report back properly!

ISO 100 for this one. The colour and noise in the top is the low-level cloud, the blight of my 2 trips to Niagara at night, can't buy a clear night sky!

Comes from way too much work during the day, only found time to take the camera out at night, and now i'm kinda stuck in the mode of night shots :P

Gonna head up to Lake Ontario soon though, apparently it's frozen in all kinds of awesome ways, giant icicles hanging off the pier, that kind of thing. See what i can do.. :)

I like the contrast in the first pic Monie.

When are you gonna get some ND filters and start some long exposure shots?

ND = neutral density. It simply blocks light to give your camera less light to work with, allowing for ever longer exposures.

Addendum to above ..

You can buy them with various amounts of reduction in light - ND2 (1 fstop), ND4 (2 fstops), ND8 (3 fstops)etc

Can get lots of different filters aside from ND also, ND gradients, weird shapes, colour filters (a little redundant on digitals but still have their uses)

Think mine are Cokin

Although I think I use B+W circular polarisers

I've got a few Cokins (phnarr), a 3 and an 8. I want to take some waterfall/sea scape shots, but I havent had the time.

1st shot, depth of field is awesome, really like it. Has a surreal look to it,the hard edge of the bank on the right with the water on the left. Some parts look painted, some look photographic ...
