So you won't be far from the Red Kite center at Llandeusant - that will give you some great opportunities to play with the AF performance!

A little bit of a drive but Freshwater West will give you some great landscape opportunities.

I wouldn't worry too much about the AA filter complainers - just see what your camera will do and I suspect you will be quite/very happy.

Anyway good luck and I hope you enjoy your new toy!


Life is for living, cameras are to capture it (one day I will learn how!).

What do I think? Early days but first impressions are that I have purchased precisely what I wanted and we're going to get on with each other just fine, be it in the studio or out and about; I have spent my money well. With the exception of a different method of zooming in to images during in-camera playback and all the additional functionality that the 5D mk IV brings, transition from my 7D has been completely intuitive - exactly as Canon intends; the same buttons in the same place with the same reach and the same menu logic making it seamless to work out where something new is going to live. A fantastic piece of kit and with the Herringbone Type 2 leather knuckle grip making it as wieldy as I like (I am not a fan of neck straps unless needing to carry two bodies such as during a commission).

I now have a very happy eleven year old son too since he now has a 7D to supplement the 400D that I let him shoot unsupervised with!

Where did you order that from? The company directly?

I put Charlie Victor onto the Herringbone strap which is available from many sources ranging from eBay to Amazon. Just search Herringbone wrist strap. Make sure you explore colors and the Type 1 and Type 2 options. A review at http://www.1kindphotog​raphy.com …one-heritage-leather.html (external link) discusses them.

Personally the black with red stitching is my preference on the black camera combined with the lens with red ring. Having said that I keep the dark brown strap (see image "courtesy" Amazon) on my backup camera just for a means of visual quick grab convenience.

Amazon (USA) offerings can be seen at https://www.amazon.com …ds_browse-bin=Herringbone (external link)

herringbones have been discussed on this board for the longest time, optech is to neck strap as herringbone is to wrist strap.

a bit too bulky for my tastes therefore I use simple paracord (upgraded from shoe laces :-P)

The only thing I've ever found close to the quality of the Herringbone is a Markins product, also all leather. The H3 strap however was discontinued a few years back. It was about twice the price of the Herringbone and only available in black. At one time the Herringbone was only available from Korea but also as of about two years ago has a US importer. Perhaps that was the downfall of the Markins strap.
