Was a nice clear night tonight :) next time I will head south though, so I can aim at the Milky Way and not get the light pollution from Auckland :( would love to find a nice still lake and catch the reflections, but I'm dreaming if I ever find somewhere in Auckland haha.

:) :cool: Single exposure, 25 sec, ƒ/3.5, ISO 3200, 10 mm

Looking forward to getting a better camera by the end of the year, perhaps a 6D as I do a lot of night photography, so better noise handling at high ISO would be very valuable :)

Couple of Escorts for Dave:

Not sure if they are both genuine Mexico's, I'm fairly sure that the yellow one is, not sure about the red one on the trailer.

Holy Crap.. That is amazing! Not so many stars and more light pollution on this side of the world.

Though I am not particularly blown away with my 24-70.. Though possibly a problem with the crop camera.

Played with a 6D on Monday with a 70-200 F2.8. Holy cow I was impressed with the images it created in low light.
Photos taken at 170mm at 1/13 sec, F2.8 Iso 6300 handheld are so sharp you can see every hair! Well impressed.

Even the Mk1 didnt drop a huge amount in price.. it held its value.. the 24-70 mk2 is amazing though :) worth every penny IMO


A bunch of Canon bits and pieces.

Doubt the yellow one is unless they did things differently in NZ. Square headlamps? No lip on the guard, there would be on a type 49 shell. But it is nice to see them on all four wheels!!!

yea that price is far to much for a hobbist to afford, esp in this country.

People who have bought the 24-70 mk2 seem to love it, I'm just not excited by the 24-70 range tbh, it is probably my least used lens but perhaps this will change if I got the mk2 version! hahahaha

I always planned on getting a 24-105. I had a loaner from canon for a month. Nice lens, but tbh never felt the need (with 17-40. 50, 70-200) to stick it on the camera.
