With my new 5D Mark II in hand I decided to head out to Spoon Bay to put it to the test. Boy it is a pleasure to use compared to the 1ds Mark II. The 3 inch screen is amazing.
For what I thought was going to be a plain sunrise really lent itself to something special. One of the key features of Spoon Bay is the water spout that starts as the tide comes in and on sunrise is really comes to life. Waiting for the right moment and then Bang the sets roll in and the spout goes off.
I haven’t really noticed much image quality difference between the 5D Mk II and the 1ds Mk II RAW files in terms of better detail but when processing the shot the blues are so much better and there is also an extra 10MB of files size (at 8 bit) as well which is nice to have.
