CANON 70D RAW TEST SHOT – (MAGIC LANTERN) FIRMWARE UPDATE

95% of the time I use my Canon 70D for still photographs. It produces very nice and easy to work with images. The reason I don’t really ever shoot video on this camera is because of the reduced image quality from the compression of this camera. I simply has small dynamic range, has trouble with skin tones, and can produce too noisy of an image at higher ISO’s. However NOW MAGIC LANTERN HAS COME OUT WITH A FIRMWARE UPDATE FOR THE Canon 70D THAT ENABLES YOU TO SHOOT IN RAW UP TO A RESOLUTION OF 1788×1004 WITH A MUCH BETTER DYNAMIC RANGE. This is all done by the passionate and driven team at Magic Lantern who continues to bring us fantastic firmware updates and features for our Canon DSLRs.

Here is a fun little test shot I recorded in my bedroom soon after I installed the firmware update. A low ambient light was in the room- It was pretty dark and the sun was shining directly into the window curtain so the contrast was very evident at the time and I thought (for sure) that the camera would have troubles getting information in both the highlights (sun light coming through) and the shadows (dark room). To my absolute delight it held a fantastic range of information- so well that I could literally color the image anyway I wanted and it didn’t look artificial or like I drew a Crayon over the image.

Pretty stuff…..the future is bright….(for pixels at least) 🙂

Baja Mexico Oasis Sunset Image Is Featured on Mexi-Go Magazine Cover!

I was recently approached by the CEO and editor-in-chief, Madeline Milne, of a Canadian Magazine “Mexi-Go” about the use of an image I shot a few years back in the beautiful Oasis of Mulegé in Baja California Sur Mexico. To my surprise, the image was used on the cover of their new winter edition for 2015.

Why this is so special to me is because this Oasis in Mulegé is a hidden wonderland of foliage in the large, vast desert lands of Baja Mexico. If you ever have a chance, visit the city of Mulegé in Baja Mexico. You will find a beautiful city full of wonderful prehistoric beaches and wildlife and people native to their land. Everyone has a smile to share and money is not a factor. You will see innocent children running to and from school with dresses and clothes of rich and elaborate colors that reflect the vibrant culture of the peoples of Baja. By day, you can do anything from hiking the foothills of Mulegé to fishing off the shores of Conception Bay in the Sea of Cortez and swimming alongside dolphins and whalesharks. Or, go rent a kayak and venture out to neighboring playas and islands. And by night, you can roam the city and find a wonderful world of nightlife consisting of spanish culture, food, music, and more. So put down your cell phone, take a couple weeks off, and go off the grid for a bit and live off the land. All you will have to worry about is putting one foot in front of the other…of course that is…in the sand.   ☮
