Camera Upgrade

On the 28th of October, I was able to upgrade my Canon 30D DSLR (which was sadly damaged in New Zealand) with the new Canon 50D.

After checking out the features of the new body I am incredibly happy. However I found out that the old battery grip was also damaged a bit. The vertical shutter button had a noticeable lag. Sometimes it would not even activate at all. As a work-around I could just use the main shutter button but it would be awkward for portrait shots.

So thanks to an early Christmas present, today I got the BG-E2N battery grip!

_MG_0864 Things I like about the 50D:

  • New menu system
  • Massive high resolution screen
  • Lens illumination correction
  • Better weather sealing
  • Higher mega pixel rating. (gone from 8.2 to 15)
  • Takes great shots from what I have seen so far

So all European blog posts will be with my new camera! Can’t wait!

(thanks to gav for the photos of my camera above!)
