Well, it's been a while since I posted anything that warrants your attention! I have an assignment to work on in a reportage style, I have a whole host of ideas to which are written down, scrawled on postits' or noted on my iPhone 4S. Yes mine is the 4S but news on the grapevine is that 4G iPhone 5, is looming rather large on many an iPhone user Christmas wish list perhaps?

I know one thing am certainly impressed with apple, I remember not being a fan of the earlier editions. However, that was then and this is now, after my run-in with samsung (you may remember my post about their lack of customer service), I cannot say that I would rush to purchase anything from them in a hurry.

I will be staying with apple and in particular iPhone, the latest addition is the iPhone 5 Wi-Fi is faster too, yay! That is all I need especially when your on the move, downloading the latest news to your iphone or uploading some key notes for a webinar...going forward with Apple is certainly a step in the right direction.

The greatest aspect for me is I can download the British Journal of Photography, and keep up to date with new releases such as Canon's new digital full frame EOS 6D 20.2 megapixel DSLR boasting an expandable ISO range to 102,400 that is incredible!

Though let's be honest why you need that high a range is beyond me, so let's delve deeper and find out why it's a great crossover to a bigger CMOS full frame. The 6D is able to produce multiple exposure on a single frame, this is great for those who have creative genius, I use layers in Photoshop to create special effects and am intrigued to find out what new software will be released by Canon for such a camera, will it rival Photoshop for tethered in-studio shooting techniques?

I have to say my mouth is salivating at the prospect, 4.5 frames per second continuous shooting. Powerful DiG!c 5+ processing, my, my that is 17 X faster than DiG!c 4.

At the heart of the 6D. Together these deliver images that are packed with detail and clarity. Colours are reproduced accurately whilst tonal gradation is subtle and natural. I recently upgraded to an EOS 1D  And so far so good, I will be posting some images soon. Which is what this post was meant to be the focal point of discussion, today am going out armed with a couple of rolls of film for this current assignment.

Fast and responsive, the EOS 1D is ideal for professional field photography

So watch this space.
