My New Camera
Ok after squeezing over 1,500 stock images out of my micro four thirds camera over the past two years, it was time to cash in some earnings and go pro.
I started out this journey a few years ago after jumping into DLSRs in order to photograph the model railroad layout I was building. Rather quickly photography took over as my passion and the model railroad still is up in the attic unfinished.
Discovering microstock as an outlet for the photographs that were quickly filling up my hard drives, I've never looked back. My micro four thirds Panasonic G camera allowed me to take my camera every where and capture clean shots with deep depth of field. Soon I learned to start making images in the studio instead of driving around the country side trying to find images.
But now I've reached the point that I feel I need to take it to the next level so I bought a Canon EOS 6D full frame camera with the 24- 105mm L lens.
I figured if I was going to get a big giant camera, it might as well have a big giant sensor. After using the very small 4/3rd camera (so small its hard to hold in the big hands), the 6D seems like a monster. Its defiantly not something you are going to carry around and be discrete about.
If fact any notion of selling off the 4/3rds camera has gone out the window because, some times you just don't want the attention that a big camera and lens attracts.
Anyway I'm still figuring out all of the setting and options on the 6D and getting used to concept of a mirror and "live view". But what I can say is that I absolutely love the fact that I haven't touched the noise reduction slider in Adobe Lightroom with the images from this camera.
