His mentor through the transition is Jeff Ascough, too. Enjoy.

Very cool. I love how he said he does everything he needs to with a 28mm and 135mm.

it just proves that your never too old to change or learn something new.

I like his view on chipping. esp in street photography. looking at the camera takes away your view of the subject and you might just miss the moment.

I think he clearly points out the advantage of digital over film.

Good video. Just interesting that Canon couldn't afford a video camera capable of more than 480p...

According to the credits the video was shot with a 1DC and 5D III. A higher res version is (or was) available on Canon's CPN site.

Yes, my stab at not being able to afford it was just a joke. Just wrong that they didn't upload full HD resolution on youtube since it is marketing material for Canon.

Yes. I liked seeing his joy at having quick auto-focus.

And how he did look out for a good view to capture instead of spending his time looking at the camera.

Yeah, CPN should use YouTube instead of hosting themselves (this video was uploaded by a random user) - using Canon's site for video is an exercise in frustration.

Perfect example of it being the photographer that makes the photos. The guy could take great photos with anything.

Always loved McCullin's work and this is a wonderful video. Great motivation!

Thank you for posting this! I loved his reaction when they first brought his picture into Lightroom and darkened the sky, he physically jumped :D

I acquired an expensive camera so I can hang out in forums, annoy wedding photographers during formals and look down on P&S users... all the while telling people it's the photographer, not the camera.
