    The Wall Street Journal is considering a few of my photos for publication this weekend. They found me on Flickr and Smugmug.

    I'm crossing my fingers!

    The daughter got Student of the Week this week, so she got to take home the class mascot (Boomer, the stuffed dog) for the weekend. Teacher asked for pics of things she did with the dog over the weekend.

    I got inspired to try one of those tilt-shift fakies from that Disney video. It's not TECHNICALLY a DSLR picture but I didn't know where else to put it. Thought it came out ok for a first shot.

    So I've been thinking of upgrading to a pro camera from the 50d.

    I looked at the 5D Mark II which is 21 mpx and full frame but it is billed as a portrait camera and has issues such as slow frames per second and some focussing problems with fast moving objects. The only other alternative that is above 10 mpx is the $6,000 camera. something Mark III which is out of my league. Just can't spend that much for something that will be out of date in two years like every other camera.

    The 7D came out this week but it's just a slight upgrade from 15 mpx to 18 mpx and I'm not sure it would even be much of an improvement.

    I guess I'll have to sit and wait for a mid-ranged and fast camera for sports/action shooting. Am I missing something here?

    Yes. You are.



    Full frame, 12.1mpx, low noise to 6400 ISO, 5fps (8fps with the battery grip), etc. All at $2700 suggested.

    Your Canon stuff should sell pretty well on eBay.

    Seriously, though. Sports photogs are switching in droves to Nikon's full-frame cameras. There's gotta be a reason!

    I know its probably not cost-effective to completely re-kit, of course.

    So why not the Canon EOS 1D Mark III? 10.1 mpx and 10 fps for about $4000?
