The World Outside My Window – Time Lapse of Earth from the ISS


Check out this YouTube Video created by David Peterson of sequences of video from the ISS. Totally amazing!

The World Outside My Window – Time Lapse of Earth from the ISS

Brighton Sea Life Centre

Thought I would put the new 70D through its paces in low-light conditions at the Sea Life Centre in Brighton. With ISOs at 2500+, the images look really good, considering it was the kit lens also with the lowest f/stop of f/3.5.

Also check out some video taken with the STM lens again in the Sea Life Centre on YouTube:

New Camera – Canon 70D

Well, I now have a new addition to the camera family – the Canon 70D Mk2 with 18-55mm STM kit lens.

The amount of new features (it has a 600+ page manual!) over my 400D is going to take some time to work out to make sure I get the most from it but so far it looks pretty damn good and hopefully will last as long, if not longer, that the 400D.

Main reasons for the upgrade are the higher resolution, HD video, 7fps and articulated screen.

I’ll still be using the 400D when out and about with both cameras, but will probably be mostly using it with the the 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM lens for landscapes and wide-angle shots.
