HDR images

Well I-phones do it.... 600D doesn`t. Just an exaggerated bracketing feature and unless you install Magic Lantern maybe a little laborious but I am really interested. It seems it is a marmite scenario, I can see the die hard`s POV but this is the 80`s! hang on..... Will definitely do one soon ...

Arrived

The Canon 60mm Ģ210 USM macro is here! Mint condition from a fine lady from Ebay, even has a nice DIY string attached to the lens cap, aww. Managed to take a couple of shots indoors, swift USM and was able to hand hold in very poor lighting. Promising! Bokeh looks lovely, very smooth. Hardly ...

In the mail..

It`s in the mail... before 1pm tomorrow.. it`s on it`s way...... The Canon 60mm F2.8 macro....... quite excited! Many reviews say the output is L quality but isn`t every lens with a bit of post tweaking an L lens? Ahh I get it, for people like my dad who find a mobile phone extremely hard, the l...

OMG

After spending yet another day to prevent snails getting at my chilli`s, mesh, perlite, "roofs" (yes an ongoing problem which I am having to engineer out) I had to get out for a walk. Not much to take pics of but noticed a multitude of bees around a bushy plant. I sat down for at least ...

New lens this week!

2nd hand EF 28-105 USM, feels like chalk and cheese build quality from my kit lens but was a bit scary for a while.... Here is my forum post... I purchased a 2nd hand lens this week which I received yesterday. An EF 28-105 F3.5-4.5 USM. Filled with excitement last night I cranked it on my 600D, ...

Valencia tomorrow...

Myself and the 600D are off to Valencia tomorrow. Hopefully I will manage to get a good shot or 2. Looking forward to the Oceanogrāfic etc. If the pictures fail then at least I should get a tan....

Managed to get out!

Weather was OK but light was pretty poor. Test run went very well and very impressed with the 600D, especially considering this was just using the kit lens! Next lens is definitely a more telephoto lens, 55mm max is no where near the distance I need to photo what I want to capture. Good stuff thou...

April 28 Camera ordered!!!

Well that`s it, taken the plunge. Uhm`d and ahh`d and plumped for the Canon 600D over the 550D and Nikon D5100. Days and days of internet research, some good, some weirdly bad but think the articulated screen will help my dodgy hip (38 YO) for some shots and the updated beginner interface may be a b...

April 2012

I am back yet again, cannot keep saying that! Buying a Canon 550D next week to hopefully kick start my hobby again with better images and less noise reduction! Hat`s off to camera manufacturers and electronics as a whole I suppose for making DSLR`s more accessible now to everyone with their keenly ...

Back Again

I have returned to photography & Ephotozine after about 3 years. Lost interest and life/work had demoted photography down my list of priorities. Hopefully now I will get back into the swing of things and maybe even get an SLR if my interest keeps up! Anyhow, glad to back for another stint and ...
