- My T5i Unboxing went up this weekend, You will hear me say this in the review- I think we will all be a bit happier if we think of the entry level DSLR market like the auto industry, every year there is a refresh of the product line and sometimes it is exciting with real changes and sometimes it is a polish with minor changes. This is one of those fairly minor changes. I will have more thoughts in my review in a few days. Take a few moments and watch the video and give it a thumbs up please. I also have some sample video showing the silent and smooth focusing of the new 18-55 STM, not lots different from the 18-135 STM.
- I spent the weekend shooting with the T5i and creating a video review of a brand new video monopod from Berno that will be part of my upcoming giveaway. This giveaway that I have been mentioning for what feels like MONTHS now will start THIS WEEK! All the stuff has arrived- I will be photographing, listing and putting this all together in the next few days, it is so exciting to be able to give away awesome gear. You all taking the time to like my Facebook page, Subscribing to my Youtube Channel and visiting the website have made it possible. Thank you!
- Last bit of housekeeping - Facebook has recently changed the admin system for pages, it now is more difficult to keep track of comments, if you leave a comment or questions on a post and I haven't answered it in a day or two please send me a message or post directly on the wall. I try to answer everyone's questions or comments that need a response so it is only because I missed yours that I haven't answered yet and I welcome a reminder or a nudge that you are waiting.
I have lost more than a few lens caps over the last year, usually the issue is not having a consistent place to put my lens cap after taking it off the lens. Capbuckle solves that, it threads onto your camera strap and gives you a place to snap the cap. A snug little home for your lens cap. The only downside I have found is that it does not work without an extra bit of string with my favorite strap, the Black Rapid Straps. Watch the video review below and then pop over to my facebook page to enter to win your very own Capbuckle. Enter to Win (contest open to residents of the US only)
