Having a special dinner tonight at SoupaSteak â€“ India style dishes â€“ I think â€“ but should be great â€“ tell you about it later with photos.
Looking forward to the food but more important to me – I will be testing my new 7D. So far itâ€™s been great â€“ taking images with my old Tamron zoom lens better than my old camera with the Canon L Series lenses. And shooting at ISO 6400 â€“ perfect. Heavy damn thing but well worth it. I am starting out using Large JPG output – approx. 6.6 MB files at 17.9 MP â€“ and using the RAW button (25.1 MB) only when it is an important shot â€“ saving space. They recommend using at least 4GB to 8GB CF cards â€“ I only have 2 GB cards from my old cameras â€“ have to do â€“ no money left after this.
Tonight Iâ€™ll use the Canon 17-40 L lens â€“ f4.0 ( I could not afford the 16-35 f2.8 â€“ $1535 â€“ Wow expensive) But still amazing what this will do in low-light â€“ Camera max ISO 12,800 – but noise at 6,400 ( little but noticeable.) so I probably wonâ€™t try to push it over 3200 to 6400. Should still be fast enough.
Tonight dinner at SoupaSteak – tomorrow Mohamedâ€™s birthday (He is at Fang Lagoon HomeStay tonight â€“ back tomorrow, with update) â€“ first dinner at Gianni de Burchioâ€™s then the show at Adamâ€™s â€“ featuring underwear ???? not sure what that means â€“ photos will tell, I will try to take as many as possible without shooting when they are nude.
