Thank Laurence I was going for a strong image to portray the strength of Helen's physic.
I wouldn't say things are strained but they do take a bit of juggling at times, but things are going well and go from strength to strength it would be nice to get enough work in so I could devote all my time to the studio and give up the day job though.

Sounds like a plan.........one that many aspire to but few manage but yours has solid grounding ~ fingers crossed for you.


That was a great meal ~ you must have a good set of pans :p

Mmm...giving up the day job sure sounds good!!

But a lot harder than working the day job.

Not had much chance to really push it yet Mike. It's very like the Mk3 but from what I've seen so far, the low light performance and the focus speed/accuracy are the biggest leaps in performance. Lightroom only released the update today so I had 2 very quick shoots and half a day in London with some friends stacked up waiting to process.

I'll be playing with it a lot more this weekend and have a load of better shots ready to post but the JPegs are too big so I need to resize them before I put them up on here.

To give you an idea Mike, this shot is SOOC, Hand held with my 16-35 f4 at about half 9 at night.

Okay - that's pretty impressive, can't warrant spending out on any more kit at the moment, need to make a bit back first lol.

Also loving the London eye slomo shot, very cool!!!

Finally got to have a play with the 5D4 in my normal habitat of early morning Dawn shots. All these were with the 16-35 f4 and a Lee 1.2 med grad + Landscape CP.

So are you impressed with the MKIV - does it make a difference?

I'm very impressed with it. I have had it since Saturday morning and shot a rugby match and then went for a walk in Whitstable just before sunset.

Coming from a 5D2 and a 7D I am instantly in love with it. Some favourite features:

  • Focus speed is amazing and really accurate, even in near dark conditions.
  • The LCD touch screen is brilliant, makes menu selections a doddle.
  • The LCD is also really clear and looks so sharp.
  • Live view shooting is now useable for me, combined with touchscreen you can touch focus onscreen and it is incredibly accurate. You can also focus and take a shot from the screen, very cool.
  • Shooting video is also awesome and the lens focus tracks automatically and you can change focal points just with a tap on the touchscreen.
  • Built in WIFI is great, coupled with the Canon app and LR mobile on smartphones you can shoot, transfer immediately to the phone, run it through LR mobile and share it however you so please.
  • Higher ISO noise levels are much nicer and iso 6400 looks very nice. I'd only go to 1600 in the past at a push.
  • The shutter sounds very nice.
  • I like the addition of a mode selector lock button. Too many times has my other camera changed from Av to M or Bulb whilst slung over my shoulder!
  • Dual CF and SD slots are nice.
  • The computer tether lead can be locked onto the body which is a nice idea for tethered shooters.


I'm a bit annoyed that it comes with two enormous quick start guides for all the languages under the sun but the comprehensive user manual is download only...it would have been nice to have the paper manual in the box.

Here are a few shots from my weekend with it. I purposely shot into the sun quite often to see how recoverable the shadows are. Very is the answer!!
