Canon EOS 1D Mark II Fun Time.

I got to play with a Canon 1D mkII for about an hour on Christmas day. The camera had a 24-70 f2.8L lens attached, a ST-E2 wireless transmitter and a couple of 550ex flashguns. First impressions was "Damn this is heavy", second impression was, "wow this is heavy".

Apart from that it was a great deal of fun, the layout is very different from my EOS 33v and took a while to get used to but the wireless flash was fun.

I wish I could say that I had some great photos to show you, but unfortunately whilst I cannot fault the camera, I was, let's say, a bit tipsy (oh c'mon it the season for charity) at the time. Although the photos are all sharp and in focus, the subject matter and composition are, well, of a lower standard than I feel comfortable displaying here.

The upside of my hours playtime is that I know that I like the camera and I know that I like the quality of the results. Roll on lottery win, I'm ready for you now :)

I copped a quick feel of a 350D in PC World this afternoon - it's very small, isn't it. The grip on the right would quickly give me cramps and the viewfinder is so small my eyes were straining to look through it.

I'll just have to start saving up more for a 20D, won't I.
