I work with the youth in our church. Last night I took some of the kids out to IHOP for a welcome to the group feast (a few new kids joined our little group). There were about 6 of us there, lots of food, lots of pancakes, lots of soda. It was fun. These are great kids, all come from great families. I’m amazed at what good young men these are. I was never this good back when I was their age.
The IHOP was pretty dark so the picture is a git grainy. I’m mentioned it before but I say it again. I really like the look of the grain or noise on the 5d mark II.
Side note – today I made the mistake of going into a camera store. I should be outlawed there. I made the impulse buy of a very, very expensive tripod. I do a lot of shooting at the beach and on the shore, and I want to do even more. So I picked up the Gitzo Ocean tripod. Seems great so far. Amazingly well built. I will be taking a trip in a few weeks up to my favorite coast line in Northern CA and will give a full review when I return.
