Fotomässan

Sunday, April 11th, 2010

Me and Andreas visited the Gothenburg Photography Fair yesterday. This year the news were a lot about using you DSLR camera to shoot movies, with all kinds of accessories you might or might not need for this. I also got to take a few pictures with the “Sigmonster”, the Sigma 300-800 mm. Wow, 800 mm is humongous! Weight is about 6 kg and the monster is 55 cm long. I had to attach my camera body to the lens instead of the other way around! :) The monster was sold at a special price at the fair, which was really low, about half the recommended or something. But still not exactly cheap, 34 000 kr I think it was. The last three  shots below are shot with the monster … and the quality is not bad at all!

New camera

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

Today I placed an order for a new camera, a Canon EOS 5D mark II, an excellent piece of hardware I think, but not exactly inexpensive either. Included will be a 24-105 mm lens and a 70-200 mm, both with image stabilizer and a fixed maximun aperture of F/4 and both excellent lenses. Not the best of the best, but excellent! If everything works out as planned, I will have my new toys in about 10 days. Can’t wait! :)
