Exploring the Harbor in Full Frame and 30.4 mpx.
This week my husband surprised me with a gesture of support for my business that would take my breathe away! He bought me the Canon 5D Mark IV full frame camera! I could hardly sleep all week while waiting for it to arrive! Then yesterday, finally... it came! After the camera arrived and I played around at home a bit, we took it for a little performance spin around the Oceanside Harbor in low light. Here's what I discovered.
We stopped at the Harbor Fish House first, our favorite guilty pleasure! Their fried zucchini is to die for! Seriously! Then finally ended our night at Tony's Sports Bar and Grill. We brought along our fur baby Biscuit too, because who wouldn't right?
Once I began shooting I noticed immediately how well I am able to isolate my focal points. There are 61.4 focal points in the Mark IV verses the 12 in my Canon 50D, making it nearly impossible to take a bad shot. But more importantly giving me absolute creative control now!
For example here in this image below with Biscuit walking, I was able to isolate my focal point to the middle left portion of the frame, creating and artistic view from behind the wall. I could not have accomplished this with my 50D. Furthermore it's nearly dark now when this image was shot. Camera settings: 1/200 sec at f/2.5 ISO 640 | Preset Argepellageo Forged 02
I could seriously go on in fine detail all the ways the new mark iv has completely released me to create in a way I've never been able to before. So I think I will just let you view the images for yourself. I captured these images litterally just 5 minutes before the sun went completely down! Just to show you how well it performs in very low light!
Needless to say the mark iv did not disappoint. I am thrilled and overjoyed with new vision and drive for where my business will go in 2018 with my new found creative freedom!
I truly have the world's best husband and support by my side...truly one happy woman.
