Yeah, i know... I forgot to update the blog..

Been very busy with moving miniman's room and other stuff. Basicly, life got in the way.. But here it is. October..

Miniman is starting to get fed up with posing, so the pics turn out more like snapshots then the desired high quality photo's. Such is life.


The complete set is here.

The complete project so far is here.

Ill do the November update in a day or 4. I wont forget. I think. :)

But not too busy to take pics! Did a bunch of stuff this month, besides the 365 project. Last monday we went to our favorite area for photography, the Amsterdam Drinking Water Dunes. The results were... Well, see for your self; Large2 IMG_9925 IMG_9868 IMG_9878 Fallow deer 1 AWD zand salamander We had a great day. Lovely weather. Probably the last good day of the year. Good thing about that is that mushroom season is about to start.. Time to break out the macro stuff!

Firmware update EOS 7D

Canon announced last month that they would update the firmware in the 7D camera. The list of new specs was pretty exciting.


The increase in burstrate is the most outstanding new feature for me. From 15 to 25! Thats a lot of action you can shoot!

Here's the complete list;

Improved maximum burst for RAW images (up to 25)
In-camera RAW image editing
In-camera Image Rating
In-camera JPEG resizing
Maximum Auto ISO setting (ISO 400-6400)
Manual audio level adjustment in movie recording
GPS compatibility
File name customisation
Time zone settings
Faster scrolling of magnified images
Quick control screen during playback

I did the update thru the EOS utility program. Very easy to do, with the given instructions.



As said, my favorite new features are the burstrate improvement and the max. auto ISO. I like to keep the ISO as low as possible, this is gonna help lots.

If you have a 7D, i highly recommend the firmware update. It basicly gives you a new camera. (i know that isnt true, but for arguments sake...)

You can find all about it here.

Since we started the 365 project i really havent had time to do some other posts on gear or whatever. But, as most photographers know... You never stop wanting or buying.

I got a bunch of new stuff over the last couple of months. Most importantly, i got a new flashunit. The Canon Speedlite 580EX II. I allready had its little brother, the 430EX.



Its a big one, compared to the 430EX. It feels rocksolid. According to the brochure its as weather resistant as a 1-series body.

I bought the book by Syl Arena, called Speedliters handbook. I have lots to learn about using multiple flashunits.

Because we were constantly struggling with the backgrounds, i decided to scout around the web for a portable system that would fit our needs. In the end i decided to go with Lastolite. I ordered the 1.8meter x 2.15meter plain collapsible background with black and white train.


It should fit our needs perfectly.

The last item on the new purchase list is a camera sling. I normally dont use them because i like to be able to remove and attach it quickly. So when i came across this, i ordered it. It works like a charm.


The plastic click thingies are the same size as the one for my op-tech wrist strap, so i didnt even have to remove that one.

New Photostream Flickr.

I had some trouble with my Flickr photostream, so i decided to make a new one. Got the "pro" package, so the pics are available in bigger sizes.

dinsdag 31 januari 2012


Since every website/blog/chatterbox allready posted this... I cant fall behind, now can i?

A "in the wild sighting of new goodies!!"

The author was on a safari and spotted a japanese gentleman with these new goodies. Im sure the cameras in those pics arent the new 1Dx, ive had one of those in my hands, and this aint one! (I got invited to a lookie-feelie at Canon's Netherlands HQ some time ago.)

The internet fora are all exploding with wishlists etc... Cant really be bothered with that, im sure when Canon makes a new model, it will be better then the last one. And im still pretty happy with my 7D set-up. But there is always room for inprovement, no?

Our 366 project is coming along nicely! 7D, G12, SX210, Iphone... Taking a pic a day is easy with that many camera's around.

Now only to find a format to show them. Any idea's?? Mail or comment!

Well, here it is... 2012. Still trying my hand on baby photography...

We took our little boy to a fellow hobby photographer, a close personal friend who wanted to try her hand on taking some nice shots of us. We all had great fun doing it!

We started a 366 project ourselves on the 1st of januari, i hope we can keep it up. :) Our goal is to make 1 photo every day, doesnt matter which camera/pose/whatever. Should be fun to do.
