I noticed this huge bird at the top of a tree while walking the dog. I's about 2-3 ft high and about 25-30 lb I'd say. I stood and watched it for awhile and then came back an hour later with the camera since it kinda looked sick or like it was resting and would be there awhile.
I use the 1dmkIII with the 70-200 2.8 IS and I use the 50D with the 10-22 for wide shots. I keep the 50D on a stool in front of me and when they come to my side of the rink I start firing the wide shots. Occasionally I use the 24-70 for something different. Using 2 cameras works great for hockey and concerts to get a good variety of shots.
I was going to get the mkiv but the savings and less headaches from upgrading Adobe and other considerations made me go for the older model. The upgrade from the 50D to the mk3 is amazing. With the mk3, what you see is what you get. Gives you a lot of power as a photographer. My Skinny Puppy pics showed me that this camera kicks serious ass.
As far as the 10=22, it's a great wide angle look but it's only for cropped sensors and is only f/4, besides that it rocks!
So I won a Nikon D5000 at the company Christmas party. I am a total DSLR newbie. Have always had point a shoot cameras.
It came with 2 manuals and 2 DVD's to teach me how to use the thing. Since I don't have the patience to study all of this, can anyone offer advice, websites, magazines that can give me pointers on how to use this new toy?
