A game-changer

Monday morning Peoria greetings to one and all,

Sometimes a product or service comes around and you can just tell that it’s going to be big and have an impact on what you do and how you do it. I got a new camera about a month ago and I can already see that it will be taking me in new directions. Canon came out with the 5D III about six months ago and I waited for any bugs to be worked out that usually happen with a new product launch. Besides a number of technical features that I won’t bore you with, the camera also shoots HD video. Now to my photography friends, this really isn’t anything new becuase still cameras have had this capability for a number of years. Shooting video isn’t something that I really want to do, but I can see where at times I can be doing a little bit for an added bonus for the client.

I was shooting in a couple of coal mines in Indiana and Kentucky last week for Central Fabricators (they make buckets for earth moving equipment) and besides shooting the stills, I was able to flip a switch and shoot a little video as well. When I got back to the see this video on the computer, I was blown away by the quality!

Here’s one of the snaps from the shoot and we had a perfect day! Here’s also the same scene shot on video and it’s worth checking out as well!

Thanks as always for taking the time to see what I’m doing and I hope that you have a great rest of the week!!!
