Canon EOS-1D Mark III, 10 mp, 10 fps

Wednesday, February 21st, 2007

Houston, we have landed. I’ve been hanging onto my Canon 1D MK1 for a while now, and there’s no doubt it’s a great camera. However, for many situations I regularly shoot it, I’m beginning to run into some limitations. Today at the PMA, Canon introduced the 1D MK3, which looks like a KILLER rig. I’m not too excited about the 10 fps; but 10MP, ISO6400, and a huge 3″ LCD with live preview are another story. Now I just need the $4000 😉

Ok folks, I’m officially open for business. Please contact geoff@flatchicken.com for all of your portrait (studio / outdoor / kids / pets); engagement; wedding; sports; landscape; and other photo needs!

It features the updated DIGIC III image processor, a new 19 area Auto Focus system, up to ISO 6400 and a 3.0″ LCD monitor (with a live view feature). The Mark III should ship in April for US$ 3999.

Update: Engadget has posted a hands-on from the PMA

Portland Cityscape HDR

Tuesday, February 20th, 2007

I’d have to say that this is probably my most successful HDR endeavor to date.  I’m finally getting the hang of properly bracketing to capture the entire tonal range of the image, and then blending and toning the final product.

Another attempt at hand held exposure bracketing for HDR – The Deschutes River as it runs through Bend, OR. Some Orton thrown in, to boot.
