canon 5d mk III

Today I finally got to hold the 5d MK3, I dropped in to calumet in glasgow to pick up a few bits and pieces and the rep for canon was there showing off the new camera, what a coincidence!

I only got to play with it for a few seconds but wow was i impressed!

Firstly the feel of the camera is so much nicer than the 5dmk2 it feels really really solid, the silent jog wheel was really lovely! basically I was super impressed and then i got to shoot a few stills and a bit of video.

The stills were really impressive the new focus was amazing and then i shot some video and the improvement was massive, the image was sharper the colours more impressive and overall it just had a look of a more grown up and thought about camera.

will i buy one well thats a tough question...

But im very tempted!

apple store glasgow - genius!

Ok so as anyone who knows me knows I'm a massive apple fan :-) I love the design, the ease of use and the software. I've had a few problems with my macpro, the DVD burner died months ago and last week I got a service battery warning. I've got very little time so I rung up the geniuses at the Glasgow mac store, they made me an appointment and I arrived this morning. They took my computer figured out the problem and fixed it right there and then within an hour I had my laptop working as normal again and for surprisingly less money than I thought it would be! Basically super super happy!

Picasa the best program in the world?

Ok i've just discovered Picasa,

I know I know for anyone that uses it yes your right its amazing!

Baiscally its a basic photo editor and cataloguer (ok cant think of a better word!) But its amazing!

I installed it and it scanned my hard drives and found EVERY image I have and put it in date order!

Its incredible, im not the most organised person when it comes to filling my images as i tend to chuck them in strangely named folders and then forget about them whereas now i can find everything whooo!!

Everyone should try it its brilliant

p.s. not being paid by google to write this but if google want to pay me hehe :-)

canon 5d mk 3

Just to follow on from my earlier post on the camera.

I'm a little upset that canon didn't get my memo about raw shooting and xlr inputs :-(

But just from the specs it looks like a pretty good camera, I need a new body and as im not planning on moving to Nikon I think that it is the best camera for me right now!

canon 5d mkIII

Ok so the canon 5d mkIII is here!!!! whooo but is it what I/ we want?

So this is the spec  (lifted from canon) and just the interesting bits for video (mostly):

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III Digital Camera is a full-frame 22.3MP DSLR featuring exceptional still image and move recording capabilities.
