Firmware upgrade Canon EOS 7D

Upgrading firmware on a DSLR camera is completely new experience for me. Canon has released new firmware for my Canon EOS 7D and today I will install it. I prefer Canons USA website to visit and download software. Canon has created a special page dedicated for the new 2.x firmware where they summarize the new features and provide a comparison from the previous version. http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/standard_display/EOS7D_firmware With the current version I have no issues, still I believe to follow the latest updates in general. 7D has professional features and getting...

Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0L IS USM

It took me a year to make the decision to buy a L lens from the Canon series. I bought the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0L IS USM lens from one of the biggest stores (camera.nu) for photographers in the Netherlands. I had one week off, and my wife and me planned to have quality time with each other close to the store so, I took the opportunity to get the lens directly instead of waiting. The lens takes beautiful pictures. Good contrast, colors and sharp; everything I would expect from lens in this class. It's fast with focusing and f4 aperture is so cool. Equipment is important for any quality work...

Faces of People’s Republic of China – Forbidden City Beijing

Last month while staying in China I was able to combine business with pleasure and got the opportunity to visit Forbidden City in Beijing. It took me almost 4 hours to complete the walk from the beginning to the end of the Forbidden City palace. I was lucky the weather condition were perfect to enjoy the sight and taking a nice walk to photograph. I borrowed from my co-worker Micha Sulman his 70-300mm lens and started to take some nice pictures. I captured faces of strangers and I had of fun doing that. The result a amazing set of 15 pictures which I am sharing. The third picture with the young...

Great wall of China – Badaling China

Last month while combining business with pleasure I visited Great Wall of China at Badaling.  Before going to the wall I visited the Ming Dynasty Tombs where I learned how cold it can be ;-). The temperature was around -10 degrees and the wall was scheduled after lunch. During this time of year (January) it can be very cold. The tour started at 1PM and I had two hours to walk and explore the Great Wall. It was even colder than at Ming Tombs with the cold mountain winds. I took some nice pictures and one panorama at the end. Thanks to Scott Kelby's tips this time the panorama worked out. It...

Windmills @ Kinderdijk The Netherlands

Kinderdijk is situated in a polder at the confluence of the Lek and Noord rivers. To drain the polder, a system of 19 windmills was built around 1740. This group of mills...
