I must certainly not forget to buy a memory card for my new camera (in this case an SD card) and this is the one I have bought. I think it should be suitable to record on. Although I was a bit gutted when I discovered I had to buy one because I’m quite cheap like that. But thankfully SD cards are a fair bit cheaper than CF cards.
Today was an important day for me as I have just bought a new Canon 60D. I was originally going to buy a 7D but as money got in the way and time I decided a 60D was the best choice. But all is not lost with this camera for I have some good points.
Firstly is that the 60D and 7D share the same sensor at 18MP.
Secondly the 60D has a flip out screen which is great for videos!
Thirdly the 60D was cheaper by nearly £200! ($334.90)
So all in all, hope is not lost but become stronger. Can’t wait to receive the 60D and get doing what I love the most. Photography.
Canon has launched two brand new lenses for their EOS range. The first one being a 16-35mm L lens. And the other one being a 10-18mm.
The L lens is rumoured to be the one that replaces the awesome predecessor 17-40mm L. Coming in at around $1200. Hopefully this lens will correct the issues that were on the 17-40mm like distortion and lens flare. But with all wide angle lenses, distortion comes with them. It can’t be helped really but it’ll be amazing if they can do it! This lens was designed with full frame sensors in mind.
And on the other end of the scale we have the 10-18mm. This lens is rumoured to be replacing the 10-22mm lens which is expensive. At around $300 that incredible for such a wide angle lens! But this lens is designed for crop framed sensors and for more the people on a budget most probably.
This was taken in early April 2014. Just going through the Hull Marina and walking round with my camera in my hand and a 10-20mm Sigma lens.
