The big news of the week is my new camera - a Caonon eos 600D. It is a combined birthday and Christmas present (probably for the next few years!). It arrive on Monday and I have just about got to grips with it but there are a few odd problems I have still to fathom out. It came with a 18 - 55 lens and my old 70 - 300 lens fits the new camera.
Here are a few of the first images I took, the very first few were deleated.
You will see from these that there are a few problems to resolve. controling depth of field and getting the camera not to over saturate the sunrise colours. All of the above were taken with the 18 - 55 lens. At the moment the images from the 70 - 300 lens are a bit 'soft' it could be that the lens has not got image stabalisation, or that it just isn't a very good lens (it was given to me) or I just haven't got used to it, it is big and heavy and even on a tripod it seems to shake.
See what I mean. Perhaps it just needs to be cleaned.
Finally on my new camera - you will remember that last weeks blog had an image of lily stamens and stigma. I took the same image with the canon. Can you spot the difference?
There were other events in the area this week that I didn't get to notably the Scottish Power Buggy heat at Philorth beach. If you got some images of it let me know and I will put them up on to the web site.
Finally as usual some more of my images from the past week.
