Shooting With My New Canon Gear

All images in this post were captured with a Canon 5D and Canon 17-40 F/4

Exif information is intact for all of you technical geeks.

I got the gear today, took the afternoon off, charged the battery and Set out to shoot. As I got close to Stoney Point, the clouds were looking interesting and thankfully they stayed that way. The colors started coming out 45 minutes before the sun set but faded to blues by fast.

For those that aren’t sure what is happening here, I decided to sell off my Pentax gear to fund a move over to Canon Gear. I bought their Canon 5D, which is a Full Frame camera. What this means is the camera’s sensor is the same size as a 35mm negative. Most digital cameras are 1.5 to 1.6 crop sensors.
Please visit here to see the advantages of full frame cameras over crop sensor cameras.

Enough rambling and on to the pictures.

First impressions of the Canon 5D : the AF is great, fast and precise coming from the Pentax lineup, 17mm is Suuuper WIIIIIIDE and just plain awesome.
The quality of the files this camera produces are amazing.

All I am asking myself is, Why didn’t I switch earlier?
