I decided I needed to give the 5DM3 a go during the commute home today. I ended up going all the way out to Fort Cronkhite on the Marin Headlands to get this photo. What I learned along the way is that a full frame sensor camera handles depth of field way differently than a crop sensor camera. Time to tame the beast.
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 at 105mm. 1/640 second at f/8.0, ISO 200. (All 105mm posts so far with this lens!?!)

I’m currently going through a major transition (all good!), so I’m wrapping stuff up and preparing to change coordinates. Also, I’ve got this brand new, monster of a camera but I’m ridiculously busy–aargh!… Lots of 5DM3 “Out and About” photos will be coming soon. In the meantime, another close-up of flora at the homestead from this past weekend.
Lens: Canon Ef 24-105mm f/4.0L at 105mm. 1/3200 second at f/4, ISO 200.

So I got the 5D Mark III, which necessitated updating my computer’s system so I could run software that could read the camera RAW files… ALL WORTH IT! WOW! What a revelation!! “L” glass with the new 5D is nothing less than the SHITE! Here’s some blooming flora from the yard. I did minimal processing on these images, and the first (the aloe bloom) is pretty much straight from the camera.
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L. All at ISO 200.
1st image: lens at 105mm, 1/5000 second at f/4.
2nd image: lens at 105mm, 1/500 second at f/6.3.
3rd image: lens at 105mm, 1/100 second at f/6.3.
(Interesting that I chose images only from the long end of the zoom range.)
Canon 5DM3 making my day.
I’ve got a Canon 5D Mark III w/EF 24-105mm in the house so I’m busy updating my game–aka, installing new and updating old software. Coming from a Rebel T2i and a G11 all I’ve got to say is, “WOW!” This is my messy desk with very low key source lighting straight from the camera (except for resizing and a touch of sharpening).
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L at 28mm. 1/250 second at f/5.0, ISO 2500!!

I took this shot back in April. It’s a view of what I see every day during the last leg of my commute home. The grass will grow longer and turn brown by June, and the deciduous oaks will fill in and darken, but this is the mise en scène of southern Sonoma County.
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm at 31mm. 1/100 second at f/11, ISO 100.
