Ridout Photography » Blogging From The Edge

Christmas – heaven on earth

The music is loud. The old grey haired man is singing. It’s a new dawn in photography. Twenty one megapixels of shear hallelujah and it’s not even Christmas day. I’ll post a 1080P video of me dancing around the tree 🙂

Tamandra - I’m drooling, too! I want one so bad it hurts. I’ll have to keep shooting with my 40D for now, though. This is my first time on your blog, really dig the images 🙂 I’ll stay tuned for some more from the new camera!

Bri - Yes, this is true Mark….High ISO with a transition from extreme dark to bright on the outer fringes, and I think it would take a true Pixel peeper to find em 🙂 Anyway, I plan on getting one. The new 24L II rocks tho, I must say…


Paul McCall - Hi Mark… It’s Paul from DWC…. So glad you got your new toy and looking forward to your review of it.

Cheers mate!

Mark Ridout - Hey Bri,
although I have read articles on it I have seen many posts from other photographers that haven’t experienced the problem. For me I really haven’t worried about it and probably won’t. I’ll check out this model when I get a chance and see if it truly exists. I think it was only evident in high iso , dark scenes.

Bri - Hey Mark, Congrats on the new addition 🙂 I had one as well but decided to cancel the order due to the black dot saga on the sensor, I’ll wait until Canon resolves that…I’ll have to sacrifice and use my old 1DSIII with 21 MP and 45p AF but I did manage to pick up the new 24mm 1.4 II today which is pretty awesome…… 🙂 That was my early xmas present….

Amanda - Score! I’m jealous.

Krystal Sarchet-Fagan - OK…I’m Jealous. My name is on a list 100 deep at the Camera shop I use. I’m still waiting for the glorious phone call saying my camera is in come pick it up. I think I’m going to go try to bribe my way up the list. Have fun playing with your camera. Can’t wait to see the dancing video. I could use a good laugh. Happy Holiday’s!!!

Adam - I’m a Nikon shooter but still drool at this model. I think the 21 megapixel will be the ‘sweet spot’ for censor size and noise performance. Time will tell. Now if my wife would only let me sell the farm and get the D700 that I want … 🙁

Seasons Greetings!

Mark Ridout - Hey Curt…absolutely! I’m looking forward to camp :)The shitty thing about the camera is the batteries are not the same as the 10,20,30,or 5D. This camera takes a new battery specific to the Mark II and retails in Ontario for 219.00….one battery!219.00 So I purchased one extra and now have two but it’s always nice to have at least two full sets. I also purchased the grip….that’s why I needed the extra battery. I will definitely be looking at picking up two more when I’m at Imaging USA in January.

Curt - Hey Mark,

I’m your July 4, 09 groom – hoping this will be making an appearance here – mostly so I can drool over it and possibly touch it.

jeff - congrats! A fellow shooter of mine got his almost 2 weeks ago, and it’s a pretty impressive machine, I’m still a little bias with my mrk III, but the 5d mrk II is a beast with resolution, and ooooo the new screen!
