Just got back from a camping trip in an area with no mobile signal or internet... bliss!!!

So, what's new in the new year? Anyone got any good resolutions? I've been enjoying some nature photography and have really enjoyed getting back into it.

Any one got any good resolutions or new photo gear to play with?

I received a grip for my 7D as a birthday present. :D I used a 5D with a wonderful strobe set-up helping a wedding photographer for 5 minutes at a wedding I attended...woo-hoo!

and then there is this:

Nothing new, really. It's going to be an interesting year, I hope. I've been getting requests off and on to do web sites for people. I think it's time to stop passing these up... Although I say that and people will stop wanting me to do them. :lol:

Phil: I could never run a marathon.

I missed a series of images I've been patiently waiting for for nearly 4 years...I started 2012 off on a low note but I look at it this way....2012 can't get any worse. :lol:

you're running it, not shooting it?!?! Well done Phil - i think that would kill me off. I did a trial session in a local gym the other day and lasted 7 minutes on the treadmill....

Onwards and upwards everyone! And have fun with the new camera Thunder!

ps. My resolutions:
-Do some exercise
-Get into nature more
-Retire as early as humanly possible and move somewhere wonderful

Warm as hell in MN this winter and 99% of the snow that we did have is gone. No ice on the shore of Lake Superior. Pretty crummy start to the year, photographically.
I think I need to take a trip just to shoot a winter scene. :lol:

We've had no snow this year, to speak of, at least. I think we had all of 1/4 of an inch and it melted that day. Nothing since.

We have the rainiest summer ever here and I'm thinking of moving to some desert somewhere, so tired of rain lol...
Apart from that getting a new camera very soon but can't decide between a 7D or 60D, need help to decide and also
what lenses to get...

I'm very impressed with Phil's marathon running, we want photos please! lol

Looking forward to seeing your nature shots Peter, please get posting...

Because we've done so much socializing during the hols I've got hundreds of potos to edit, such fun!!!

I hope it's not an obituary photo! :lol:

I had the same decision and went 7D. I think you would be happier with the 7D but it comes with a bit of a learning curve.

Ah OK, and it's different from the 60D, the learning curve I mean? What confuses me is that IQ seems to be the same for
both of them and only the weatherproof body seems to differ between them as I don't shoot sports so don't need the
faster frames per second thingie lol...

I thought the same thing regarding the faster framerate.. However, now that I opted for the camera that had a faster framerate, I'm glad I did it. I like to bracket exposures in case I decide to do some tone mapping or HDR. It's much easier to align photos if you use a faster frame rate. Obviously if you use a tripod you don't need to align them at all, but not having to pull out a tripod when I can do it hand held is much better.

Oh that's a good reason as any Aaron, I didn't think of that but I'm going to share the camera with my partner and he
is thinking of getting into HDR for sure as his bush photos are the base of his paintings and that's the reason he
wants a better camera! Thank you for pointing that out! :D

It has a few more belss and whistles, and focusing options for the Servo which are really useful. It doesn't have a few of your "auto" settings such as 'sports' & 'landscape' etc.
For shooting sports it has a very good tracker and I've had it out in rain without issues.
