Am really enjoying using the 645d though. I love the feel of it in my hand, and it's actually about the same weight of my Canon 5D mkII with a 24-70 L lens on it.
+1. I am enjoying the camera as well. It is easy to carry in the field, a little bulky in the bag, but not much. I also like the idea of having a "roll of film" with 200+ frames on it.

My wife encouraged me to get mine--if I sold the rest of my cameras to finance it. But to be honest, it was the only way I was going to step into MFD. And I am shooting more than ever.

But ever silver lining has a cloud. This puppy is filling up my hard drive fast. I need more storage.

Get your hugs for the day and don't cop a feel while doing it. Trying out the built-in meter on this kit.

The Silver Man. This guy is a regular feature at the Pike Place Market in Seattle. He is all painted in silver as well as the chair, lunch box and money bucket (I painted him more bronze). His act is to stand there for pictures and make robot servo motor sounds when you approach him. Apparently, it is lucrative enough for him to do this because I've seen him there for many years. So this year I've finally joined the countless other people who've also taken a picture of him.

This is a multi shot HDR (7 shots, -3, -2, -1, 0, +1, +2, +3) converted in Photoshop CS5's HDR Pro. The restaurant by here is excellent and was at my wife's birthday meal there so grabbed my camera with me.

One from yesterday

Mumbles Pier, Swansea, South Wales

Mumbles Pier is over 100 years old and where my wife and I spent some of our first date. It is now closed indefinitely for structural tests. The day started bright but turned cloudy in the afternoon.

Shot @ 33mm on FA 33-55 f/16 1/30

Another from yesterday - Worm's Head from Rhossili

The Gower peninsula in South Wales has lots of beaches, and was the first area in the UK to be designated as am Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Worm's Head is an island off Rhossili on the South Western part of the peninsula, and it is possible to walk across the causeway 2.5 hours either side of High Tide, after which it is too dangerous to swim across.

I liked the way the sun was streaming through the clouds and the effect this had on the water. I didn't have a long enough lens with me for a tight crop, so did this in post. Had originally shot as a wide @33mm . Shot @ f/16, ISO 200, 1/125

my first test photos with IQ180

I had the camera for about an hour to test. The fisherman was a snapshot with 35mm and phaseone, the little dog with the 120mm macro.

One from this evening

On way my back home from the eastern side of Mynydd Dinas, Port Talbot in South Wales and spent some time doing long exposures. This was a 25 second exposure at f/16, was a wide shot but I cropped in as I could see the light trails

Shot with FA 33-55

Loving the light from this evening!

The weather has been unusually good the last few days, and the visibility and colour in the sky was amazing tonight. I used my 645D with my FA 33-55 and then processed 7 shots in HDR Pro in Photoshop. Aperture was f/16 and shot at 55mm.

Thunderstorm at Cedar Breaks Nat'l Monument, Utah

Here is a four frame stitch done in CS4, 645D, 55mm @f13. A thunderstorm at Cedar Breaks National Monument, Utah. Unfortunately, evergreens and pines killed by beetles are a fact of life throughout the western US and it's sometimes quite difficult to compose a shot without including dead trees. But I thought it worth posting as a fairly dramatic documentary view although I wouldn't hang it in the gallery. No HDR, a bit of dodging and burning and minor tweaking. The master file nets out at just under 500 megs. This low res JPG doesn't really do the 645D justice.

Really fine landscape. I was in Alaska in June and they had went through a beetle problem too some time ago. Dead trees all over.
