Got assigned to shoot some bands downtown tonight. Should be a great test for the new setup. Can't wait to put it through the paces on Wednesday against the Flyers.

Sweet, you got it! Did you buy it new (blue dot)? Just be sure it has the latest firmware (1.2.5)

Yeah I was looking at used ones and decided the 1 year warranty on a new one would be worth it since it's right here in Irvine. I've been wanting a pro vamera for awhile, can't wait to get acquainted with it. The custom functions are incredible, everything is configurable.
It's got the latest firmware. What is blue dot? I'm pretty sure it's up to date because it was bought from a busy online dealer. That's another reason why I didn't want a used one, I don't want to start off by having to take it in for the latest hardware tweaks. This should have everything fixed and working (crossing fingers).
Setting the auto-focus for hockey on "ring o fiire" with one central point of focus and 9 around it for tracking.

This was shot at 6400 ISO which the 50D would have been a lot more grainy. this is actually usable.
There was virtually no light in this place and I still got some interesting images.

Just got back from Seattle and had some fun with this one. Looked like a good setup for an HDR so I took it. I still don't like how noisy these skies are personally. Any tips on how to reduce that in processing?

This was also taken is a very dark room but still pulled up some light and color, and the noise is pretty low considering.

Just got back from Seattle last night. Here's one from the airplane. I'm surprised it didn't pick up more from the window to be honest (scratches and all that). Also one of a bunch of tasty looking veggies that was in the marketplace on Pike.

Really like how this one turned out. The oranges and blues on the ceiling really make my cockles warm. Were you using a flash at all in there or did they not allow it? I'm guessing from what you were saying about the light that you weren't, but I'm curious.
