We are now in day 5 of the first ever photo contest from Canon Blogger, so keep thinking freedom as you point that lens – it could win you cold hard cash! Check out the details from the post of July 3rd, here. In new news, I got a good long weekend with family to shoot with the 40D, and after some pretty extensive shooting (over 1500 shots in 48 hours), I’ve had a chance to get at least a good handle on the basics of the 40D. Granted I do not have the minutia of it down pat like on the XT, but I suspect that will only come with more time behind the lens.
Anyway, I thought now might be as good a time as ever to give you the lowdown on my thoughts of the 40D as they compare to the XT. It was definitely worth the upgrade! I put together a short video showing a comparison of some of the benefits of the 40D over the XT, as well as one rather disappointing thing. I should be back next week with a regular Photoshop tip – just the last few weeks have been rather crazy with prepping the house to be “show ready”.
Anyway, without further ado, here’s the 40D versus XT home video I recorded earlier today. Enjoy and we’l see you tomorrow with the latest edition of “What’s This?”. Happy shooting and watch those apertures!
