REALLY nice to be able to confidently use more than just the one center focus point!

...just to get ahead of the, uh, curve - I do recognize that if I had a Leica, and an "eye" with, oh, thirty five to a hundred or so years of experience, I wouldn't need ANY focus points...

Not sure that's even enough experience Ted. It took Rye much longer than that. His first camera used copper plates if I'm not mistaken.

I worried about that blue snow too, before it got accepted. I have several similars - taken earlier - with white snow and not much light (yet) coming from inside the paper bags. I thought they were Dullsville. In any case, this first DL was twelve bucks plus worth of XXL blue snow, so I think I'll leave it as is.

Beautiful Ted! I like the contrast between the blue snow and the warm light.

How do you like the new camera, Ted?  Major difference from the 5D2?

You are right Jodi.


Thanks Britta.


I like the new camera a lot Alex. With only the very minimal two weeks-ish experience so far, and with the exception of the not inconsequential much better focusing/metering (the overriding reason I bought the new one), I haven't seen/felt any major differences from the 5D2. There are several small things that are definitely different - buttons and switches in different places/with different functions, but nothing jarring - menus similar but better/more logical overall - a bit "thicker/sturdier" feel in the right hand grip particularly, and with the overall camera - etc. I haven't turned the video on yet (but never did with the 5D2, so won't be able to compare anyway when I eventually play with the 5D3 video), and I haven't begun to stress/stretch the more comprehensive focusing/metering capabilities yet. But I have actually read the whole manual up to the beginning of the video section - about 170 pages - and have played with pretty much every function to that point. Along with that, from what I've read in other places, the image quality in some cases is likely to be better than the 5D2, although I never had any real complaints with my 5D2. So I'm getting there...and getting pretty familiar. Again, simplistically, (and in a very un-Ted-like summary), I like it a lot.

Forgot to mention ^ I had no problems whatsoever with the new camera driving two remote 580II speedlights with my pocketwizards. I didn't do anything (and wouldn't have expected to need to do anything...) other than attach the TT1 to the new body and the TT5's to the flashes and start shooting.

IMO Wendy, as i dont know the EXIF details, (i dont know anything really) i am guessing the sun was high in the sky because the shadows are short and harsh, and because the image could have been taken with the sun lower in the sky......or on an overcast day? and i think you are in your peak summer right now? so the sun is quite strong? i think what i am saying is take that shot in spring or autumn when the sun is not so strong or early morning/evening in the summer


Ted, the only time the metering on the 5d2 really bothered me was when i went to the York shoot, using only the centre spot i would focus on the eyes, finger on the shutter, then recompose etc, BUT because the camera angle changed many pictures had to be downsized to medium

Susan no chance of shooting that again for a while. We werre travelling, it was about midday as you noted. But harsh light is more the norm than not in summer.


Congrats Kevin.

Congrats Kevin, nice!

 wendy, anymore I rarely pick up my camera in the middle of the day unless I'm inside or it's cloudy and lighting soft. Most of my lighting rejects are from harsh sun. I have a bunch of images too that I can't shoot again and couldn't shoot at a more ideal time of day. Morning or evening sun when the light is more at an angle is more flattering for sure though.
