Playing with New Toys: EOS 1D-X and EOS 5Dmrk3

Playing with New Toys: EOS 1D-X and EOS 5Dmrk3

During the past couple of weeks I have been playing with new toys — or tools, more like it. Canon Finland was kind enough to lend me the new EOS 1DX and the 5Dmrk3 to play with for couple of days. No, this is not a test, just simple first impres­sions.

Let the Games Begin: WC Athletics in Daegu, Korea

Let the Games Begin: WC Athletics in Daegu, Korea

Well, I hope my being a total idiot for the past couple of days has finally reached the end and I can more or less concentrate on work over here. I mean, how much can one person mess up: lost passport, frozen computer, unpaid accom­mo­dation, 25 kg of hand luggage (funny they should react to that… :-)), lost iPhone… …

Livefeed from Barcelona

Livefeed from Barcelona

This is something I have been working on for a quite a long time and now it’s time to put it into a real field test. Not that the actual technique is so complicated, but it’s been interesting trying to build the workflow so that it is rock solid and easy to use in a hurry and under pressure. What …

Going Totally Wireless with Canon 1D Mk4

Going Totally Wireless with Canon 1D Mk4

I had planned to continue my post on the “suicide of the print”, but due to some change of circums­tances I save that for a later day. I just have to add that thank God I made my presen­tation that day and not later: the photo­graphers I was addressing just swept the table in our POY two days later. Seven …

Heading Home

Heading Home

Or the title could be: “Thank God it’s over”. I miss my family and I am truly happy getting home. No more Four Hills Tournament nor ski jumping — tomorrow I have a free morning and I thought of going skiing to the Kaprun Glacier for couple of hours before heading to Munich and taking an evening flight to Helsinki. …

Midway through the Four Hills Tournament

Midway through the Four Hills Tournament

(Updates on Canon EOS 1Dmrk4 on an earlier post . Updated 6th Jan 2010) I usually do not show tears­heets. But I’ll make an exception, as I think guys back home (seriously unders­taffed) have done a good job. So thank you guys. It’s half way through the tournament and this is what I have come up with so …

The Four Hills Tournament

The Four Hills Tournament

(Updates on Canon EOS D1mrk4 are in my previous post. Updated 6th Jan. 2010) Rainy days in Oberstdorf are over — and now it is rainy days in Insbruck. Got here this afternoon and will commute to Garmisch-Parten­­kirchen now for a couple of days. But it’s nice having the same hotel for several days in a row and …

Canon EOS 1D mrk4 in Action

Canon EOS 1D mrk4 in Action

(UPDATED 6th Jan. 2010) I shot my first 500 or so work images with the production model Canon EOS 1Dmrk4 ( EOS-1D Mk4, EOS-1D Mk IV, EOS-1D mark 4, EOS-1D mrk 4) today and I was surprised. Not only was the quality of the images with the higher ISOs very nice, but the autofocus performed even better than I had antici­pated. …

Canon EOS1D mrk4 — Production Model

Canon EOS1D mrk4 — Production Model

Honestly, I didn’t believe it possible, but my trusted camera-dealer pushed lots of buttons, made lots of phonecalls, twisted arms, maybe killed someone, I really do not know… but he made it happen. So I got a production model Canon 1Dmrk4 in my hands just before Christmas. Now, I will respect the holidays and for the next three days I won’t touch …
