EOS 40D Test Shots

Right, so I haven't updated in a LONG time due to midterms, which also kept me from taking pictures in general (including trying out my new 40D). So a few days ago I took a break from studying (ok, one of MANY breaks) and tried out my new camera. Here are the results:

This is Pacific Spirit Regional Park office. This is one of my first semi-successful panoramas formed by four horizontal shots on tripod and stitched together using Photoshop.

This is taken right on top of the fireplace in my apartment using tripod and flash bounced from the ceiling.

I must say the 40D is a very versatile camera, producing very usable images all the way up to ISO 800 in my opinion (ISO 1600 with NR in camera). The burst mode is much better than compared to the 300D that I previously owned, not to mention the bigger and brighter viewfinder. I haven't tried out the live-view feature yet, but I'm sure I'll find some use for it.

I will post more pictures later from my collection of images taken for the university newspaper Ubyssey.

That's it for now.
