Sunday Lazy Sunday

(today’s blog title should be sung to the tune of “Sunday Bloody Sunday” by U2 LOL) Continually looking for news – i really appreciate all who send me stuff – makes things easier :)

Buy a 5D mk ii! (note the BUY link at the top – updated regularly)
None of the online stores indicate ‘in stock’ but the Adorama site says they have some coming soon – so order now.

In the UK, simplyElectronics has the body and kit back in stock

News
• Ok, not canon 5d, but new rebates on Canon 40D or 50D Digital SLR Camera at B&H – must also purchase Canon PIXMA MP980 Photo All-in-One Printer
• 1001NoisyCameras beat me to the luminous landscape report of 5D mk ii failures on their Antarctic trip. We had reported the impending report due to a post found on twitter and had been watching for it off and on, but this time, 1001 beat us out – well done! :)Here’s some discussion on the POTN forums – also discussion on luminous-landscape’s forum including direct reports from a couple of the users with errors. Debate ensues about camera operating recommendations for temperature/humidity etc.

• Petition to Make Canon add 24p support in the new 5D mark II

Stills
• Some awesome Aurora Borealis images from Dave Brosha (his blog with more amazing stills) who describes these images: “I specialize in Aurora photography so I was quite excited to get the 5DMII (previously shot with a 5D) to see how it handled my "normal" shooting conditions: 25-30 second exposures, higher ISOs (generally between 800-1600), cold temperatures (from -20C to -45C).
Prognosis: amazing. Last night was the first display of Aurora Borealis that we've gotten since my new camera arrived, and it responded amazingly – noise was low, and the colours vibrant.”
