Now I've watched it in full, it was very inspiring., 135mm I've very rarely used that focal length ( once as I recall - for my favourite landscape image).

It was a widley used and popular focal length once upon a time, perfect for outdoor portraits or indoor sports.

I have an old 135 f2.5 tamron that I sometimes use on M4/3, behaves like a 270mm f2.5 Smile

The Canon 135 f2 is just lovely and I can`t understand why so few use it.

The price of around £900 and the fact it doesn't zoom? Wink

I have the Zeiss 135mm f1.8 and predominantly use it, as the saying goes, as " my walkabout lens " at festivals and events.
Super lens even though it is slightly heavy.

Great tog who has an eye for a great image and that´s why he´s been a top pro for so many years. As he says, very moody images.

Well not only one of my favourite photographers but all taken within a few minutes from me. And nobody told me he was around which is rather annoying. The market was in Olonzac just a 5 minute drive from our village. Then they were in Narbonne, around the Hotel de Ville and the indoor market. The oyster beds were by Bouzigue near Sete. The only depressing thing about it was that he came away with stunning photographs in such a short space of time and I have been living here for years and virtually nowt to show for it. A cracking little film nevertheless. Thank you Pete.

By the way, if anyone is interested in having a go photographing this area send me a private mail as I could easily help out.

Very interesting and a little sad in a way. There are plenty of EPZ members in the 'senior' category, like Don, who got to grips with digital years ago. To see someone of his ability and reputation expressing wonderment at things we - these days - take for granted was quite odd.

I don't think this is his first use of a digital camera.


Quote: The stunning principal photograph captures the tattoo of a Victoria Cross which covers Beharry’s back, and was the first digital
photograph by McCullin to ever go on public display. It was commissioned by IWM in 2010 for the opening of its Extraordinary Heroes exhibition in The Lord Ashcroft Gallery at IWM London.

From the "About the film" part/section

As Canon is one of the key sponsors of the Ian Parry Scholarship CPN got an invite to witness the 2011 judging.

Over lunch on that day the table talk turned to what projects Don McCullin was currently working on and how he had begun to experiment with using digital cameras, including the Canon EOS 5D Mark II. It was then that an idea took shape – what if CPN could document Don McCullin’s journey into shooting with digital cameras?

Well I guess his journey started in about 2010 and a continues, like it does for many of us.
