Equipment Review – 5D Mark II camera

Saturday, April 11th, 2009
Continuing my series of equipment reviews for photographers, I recently re-acquired a 5D Mark II camera. My review of this camera will be short… it has the following advantages over the original 5D (which I used up to this point):
– Usable ISO6400 = 2 stop improvement = faster shutter speeds, or lower light capability
– Huge LCD.. much easier to see!
– Video is a nice toy (for weddings)
– Live view is a nice toy (for weddings; it’s indispensable for astrophotos)
– Controls are the same as the 40D, my backup camera.. huge ergonomic thing.. now I can change the camera settings much faster since they’re the same.
– 21.1 Megapixels
– Usable SRAW1 mode which yeilds 10 megapixel shots, the same as the 40D (also a 10 MP camera). Save on card and disk space.

Already used the camera at Meg + Steve’s wedding, and it performed flawlessly. Can’t wait to really grow familiar with it over the next couple years. If funds allow, I will definitely pick up a second copy.

200mm f/2.0 L IS coming today

Saturday, April 11th, 2009
Can’t wait for the arrival of my 200/2 L IS lens today. I sold off my 300/2.8, and 135L to fund it’s purchase. Yeah, it’s too expensive but the results are awesome. This piece of equipment will differentiate me from the rest.

Camera changes

Thursday, March 26th, 2009
My trusty 40D died on Monday! It was/is my backup and 2nd camera. Wanting to ensure I have appropriate backups for my first wedding this Saturday, I pulled the trigger on the camera I had intended to buy anyway- the 5D Mark II. It arrived yesterday, so I’m pretty excited to use it this Saturday. And my 40D goes off to the service center for repair. Hope it doesn’t cost too much since the 40D is out of warranty :(
