New Body for Alistair Tutton Photography

Yep; it finally happened. I swapped in for a new body. Unfortunately I still have my love handles - but I also now have a brand new shapely Canon 1Ds Mark III, or bloody big camera. It's been four years in development and it was definitely worth it. Beyond the megapixels it's got more color, more dynamic range, a better interface with the computer, more customization, a better processor and it's lighter! It's been making some very pretty shots and it's definitely time I got it. The photo is of the new body with the old body in the background - not much difference in that view except the fancy numbering...but trust me it's better.

The only complaint I have is that it's a little slow on the buffer - probably because it's trying to stuff 22MB of data into the card at five frames a second...but it's still a complaint!

The best review I know of it is by Bryan Carnathan. He does wonderful Canon equipment reviews. The Canon site is here.

The best part of buying the new body was actually buying it locally and not going through the usual internet vendor. Photographx did a wonderful job of getting the product in while there was a national shortage and it reminded me of how much fun it is to purchase products at a store!
