The Ubiquitous Lens just got an upgrade! Here’s a shot of my new 50D in action.
There’s been something of a learning curve, but for the most part I’ve been able to figure things out on-the-fly by just testing the most logical buttons or settings at random.
Yes, Jim, I will read the manual, but I’m not done playing yet! 🙂
Things I love:
- The larger screen is magnificent!
- Auto-ISO (where have you been all my life?!)
- Burst mode of 6.3fps up to 16 in RAW or 90 in JPG mode.
Things I less-than-love:
- It’s larger and slightly heavier, and I have small hands.
- The status display is on the top.
- Pardon my French but… BIG ASS FILES! (Drobo time!)
Things I’m looking forward to fiddling with:
- Face detection.
- Live mode.
- “Creative” Auto mode.
- ISO 12,800 (Not necessarily something I’ll use, but at least now I have the option!)
Photos to follow….
