New Toys

As we mentioned in an earlier post we were recently in Florida attending the Florida Camera Club Council Annual Conference. BlackRapid sponsored this event space for us and provided giveaways for the show. They were a big hit! Thank you BlackRapid.

While we were there, we had the opportunity to play with a few NEW big boy toys.

400mm f4L, 500mm f4L, 800mm f5.6L,
2 100-400mm f4-5.6, 7D, 5D Mark II, 5D Mark III

We were particularly excited to use the (at the time, unreleased) 5D Mark III. We couldn’t wait to get out in the field and test out the gear. We met an exceptionally talented local wildlife photographer named Dennis Goodman. He took us to one of his favorite locations to photograph the “Snowys” or Great Egrets so that we could put these new toys to the test. Needless to say we had fun, and the images turned out great as well. Here are a few of the shots. Hope you enjoy some of our results.
