After a short delay, our new Canon 5Ds finally arrived, and last night proved the perfect opportunity to test out some of its capabilities. As I headed home from a meeting at church, the lightning was popping all over the place – and not just single bolts (like the photo above), but the kind of lightning with tendrils that expand and fracture across the entire sky. So, after a brief stop at the studio to grab the new camera and a brief consult of my radar app, I went out to one of my favorite spots and started shooting. The gallery below features some of my favorite shots.
As far as the camera goes, I had it paired with our 24-70 2.8L II lens, and I was taken back by the sharpness in the photos. With a 50 megapixel sensor, the detail this camera can capture is truly amazing. And, because there is an over-abundance of pixels, low light noise patterns are greatly diminished in the finished work. Also of note, the shutter is considerably more quiet and the dynamic range seems to be a stop or so improved over the 5D Mk III. So far, I am very impressed with the camera.
