This is my first outing with the new EOS 40D which was interesting with the new big live view screen.

For those of us that have trouble looking through the tiny view finder on windy days for any extended length of time this little addition is a must. I usually end up with watery eyes and struggle to get what I want. You can use it in manual focus and get a magnified view of your target focus area on screen, this allows you to move a little focus box around the screen or full AF and let the camera do all the work.

I have put this one in digitally manipulated also because I have toned it using Photomatix. I have included a B&W Version 2.

Hi Jouko,

Thanks for all your comments, the new live view screen, 10.2 pixels and simulated overexposure on the live screen are excellent. You can just press the OK button at anytime to go off live view but with the thirds grid displayed it makes composition so fast all in real time. Adjusting ND Grads is a breeze as you get to see the positioning on screen.

Once the picture is taken and written to CF card you get a nice view of the image back on screen with any over/under exposed areas flashing brightly.

I am so looking forward to finding out more about its other new features but should really read the manual first..

Chris

Hi Chris, I must say this is a successful shot in regards to textures, tone and composition. Plenty to keep the eye busy. There is a slight halo around the shed due to PP. I would mask and feather short of that and increase the levels slightly. Very nice work..

Wonderful shot Chris although I do prefer the B&W version. Smile New cam sounds good m8, I thought you'd have gone for the 1DS mk III though.

Your new toy sounds exciting, the image certainly is, the subject is right up my street, literally, but I can't decide which version I like best. Still, it's great to get two for the price of one, so to speak.
