I just received this present through the post from my brother in Hong Kong. It’s the awesome 24-70mm F/2.8 coffee mug.
My postman, who’s also a keen photographer, rang my doorbell because I had to sign for it. Because it was an international package it had to be declared on the label which said “Mug”. I opened it with much excitement and lo and behold it was the Lens mug. I’ve not been this excited about a package since my last lens which was the £1200 14-24mm!! This mug was a fraction of the price but it just looks so damn cool!!
Being a geek and a photographer I had to photograph them side by side. Can you tell by the photo below which one is the real one??
Thanks to my bro Ray!!!
As much as I love shooting weddings, I like to relax by taking studio shots of beautiful people. This shot is of my friend Charli Keeler. See more of Charli on my portrait photography site. Link here…
The more I use the 5D Mark 2, the more I realise how close it performs to my Nikon D3. I am very close to saying it’s a better camera than the D3.
Yes, once more I’m back on my Canon Vs Nikon video SLR rant again.
Canon have recently released their budget SLR aim at the amateur. I can’t vouch for the photography quality as I think they pretty much trounce Nikon at the lower end anyway, however their video is far superior to anything Nikon have released!! I would even say the 550D video quality is as good as (if not better) than the Nikon D3s video quality!
Take a look at his promotion video released by Canon. It’s amazing!!! Nikon are just not catching up at all! I love my D3, but I want a D3 that can also do high quality HD video! Is that too much to ask???
My faith in Nikon is ebbing away each month as Canon continues to show the old dog how it’s done. For now, I’m a professional photographer and I will stand by Nikon, but I am very tempted to go to the other side. I don’t know how much longer I can stand it.
In one of my recent weddings I photographed, I managed to squeeze in a few moments to capture some video footage, stuck it together using Final Cut Pro in under 30 minutes and added a soundtrack by my very good friend Gary Mullins who happens to be an amazing guitarist.
The NIkon D90 isn’t the best video SLR in the market, but because you can use some impressive glass with it (in this case a Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8) then it beats any compact HD camcorder in my opinion. I’m hoping to get my hands on a Canon 5D mk2 soon so I can continue with my experiments.
Have a look, let me know what you think.
Found this great video explaining the differences between these two giants of the SLR world. I’m a Nikon photographer so obviously I wanted the D3s to smoke the Canon, however the 1D does have some amazing qualities that I would love to have in my weapons bag!
Engadget have posted an interesting article about the Nikon D300s. It sits between the amateur Nikon D90 and the Semi-pro Nikon D700. I already have the D300, however there is not enough difference to justify the minor upgrade. To be honest, if I was coming into Digital SLRs fresh, then I would go for the awesome Canon 5D Mark 2. It’s full frame, better ISO and full HD video.
