A New Camera Arrives!

Digital original
When I received my first Canon EOS 5D MKII in December 2008, the night before I left for a trip to Ottawa, I immediate phoned Miranda, mentioned the new camera had finally arrived (I’d had the 85mm f/1.2 lens for almost a month already) and oh so innocently asked “Any chance you happen to be planning to take a shower anytime tonight?” Needless to say, less than 20 minutes later I was at her house, photographing her in the shower.

This was a test of the new camera in many ways - but most importantly, it was made at 1600 ISO - a highly sensitive setting that permits photography in low light, but usually comes with the price of lower image quality (digital noise), but in the case of this camera, 1600 ISO proved to be more than practical!
