Meike Multi-Power Battery Pack for Canon 5D Mark III

This morning I received a package in the mail that I’ve been waiting for. The aftermarket battery grip for my Canon 5D Mark III made by Meike. It would be nice to always buy the OEM accessories for your camera but when it’s around $499, I’d have to say no thanks. In most cases the differences are only aesthetics, sometimes …

Time Lapse Sydney

Just playin’ around when I took the girls out a few days ago into the city, it wasn’t the best weather but there was enough clouds to make it a little dramatic. Unlike the Nikon D7000, D600 and the D800 – the Canon 5D Mark III does not have a built-in intervalometer so now I have to go out and …

It’s a beautiful spot and I can imagine that it would be busy during the weekends with families and their kids flocking to the beach during the warmer …

The D600 Quandary

In a few weeks time I’m shooting another wedding and it may just be the last one for 2012 as the birth of our first baby is only a couple of weeks away. I want to make it a good one, go out with a bang and make it the best wedding shoot I’ve ever done. With that in mind …

Nikon D600

Let’s talk about cameras, the rumoured release of the D600 to be exact. I’ve had the D700 now for almost 9 months now and I have grown to love it since defecting from Canon. I have also learned so much from it so the question for me is – Have I reached the point where the limitations of my D700 …

Landscape Photography – New Zealand

Landscape photography is something that I have always admired and I envy those who are dedicated enough to drive/fly/hike to various exotic locations and come out with some absolutely stunning captures. Most of my photography consists of portraits and events which I have enjoyed doing. I love being able to capture the moments, the emotions and bringing out the best …
