As if married life and fatherhood were boring enough, I picked up a little gumar (definition) on the side: a gorgeous Canon 5D and 24-105 f/4L lens.
If you've been paying attention around ExPo for a few months, I know what you're thinking: Whatís the world come to? First KC bought a fridge, then Scotty B got a Mac, and now Mark - of all people! - has gone digital.
Dave in Denver is the last of the piss-n-vinegar film shooters on ExPo. (my glass is raised)
Geez, look what this stuff does to a man. Familiar with Gollum from the Lord of the Rings?
I took the advice of many shooters, saved my dollars, and held out for the 5D. The intensive thread is here. I came very close to purchasing a 30D a while back, and then almost went with the 40D two weeks ago. The 5D won for the full frame sensor, and more robust construction.
Hereís what I know so far: white balance, what a pain. But what a meaty camera! I should weigh this thing. The weight alone gives the impression that what you hold in your hand is an extraordinary piece of equipment.
Since I donít have a camera than can shoot a digital picture of my new digital camera, youíre going to have to trust me that these came from a fancy new Canon 5D with a beautiful 24-105 f/4L lens.
I remember Pasquale with kindness when he said (ain't no lie):
