Testing out my new camera

Last week I finally received my Canon 5D Mark II after waiting what felt like an eternity. Canon announced the new 5D back on September 17th. I pre-ordered the body that same day hoping to get it as soon as they started shipping. Canon said they would start shipping by the end on November. I paid for next day shipping hoping I would get it last month in time for Alex & Colleen's wedding so I could test it out.

A couple cool things about the Canon 5D Mark II that really made me want to get it are the 21.1 mega pixel sensor, the ability to shoot at higher ISOs for lower light situations, and the rocking 1080P HD video it can record.

This past weekend I brought the camera with me to our small group Christmas party. I didn't shoot as much as I wanted, I was having fun playing with Gideon and hanging out with my friends. Here are some shots, mostly of Gideon testing out ISOs 800-3200.

This next photo is an old one from a previous post of the three pregnant women in our small group. Left to right: Vic, Victoria, and Corrie.

Here is the updated photo.

Here are a couple video clips I shot to test out the new camera. These are reduced for the web but you should see the amazing quality straight out of the camera.

Yeah! These look amazing! I also pre-ordered the Mark II and am still waiting. Grr....(Although I did just get an email that shows it should ship by next week. I am shooting a New Year's wedding so I have my fingers crossed.) I assume Gideon is your son? Adorable. And I LOVE the name. Happy holidays.
