So it's goodbye to my old 400D. These Night Herons were the last shots it will probably take birdwise. Ironically Night Herons were also the first too.
Well not strictly goodbye, I'll keep it for landscape stuff at least. And hoe can I get rid of it after all the thousands of shots it gave me over the last two and a half years?
Chopped the top of that one's wings off.......
But it makes a change from the usual view............
Not much else to report. Here's a fox from Onuma last week, lens wide open and ISO 800.
So goodbye to the 400D and hello to the 7D.
And here is a shot from my NEW 7D. Woohoo!
With the 7D and my old 400D kit lens wide open and at ISO 6400.
It seems a complicated camera especially after coming from the 400D. Plus at the moment I don't have an English manual (I downloaded a PDF one but it's just not the same as a book-I can't read it on the bog for starters).
One thing though. My 8GB card holds 765 pics on my 400D and at the same settings on my 7D it holds about one third of that. So should I get a 16GB or 32 GB one? Hmmm.......
