Canon EOS 5DS.

The new Canon EOS 5DS has arrived. At 50 megapixels, it is the highest resolution digital SLR as of today.

I fired off a few frames this afternoon and took them through my usual workflow.

    Wow! The 100% crop has left me speechless. Not even a single grain. Amazing.ReplyCancel

Don’t try this at home.

Amid the volcanic surrounds of Krafla in northern Iceland is the incongruous scene of a borehole capped with a shower head. My friend Kristinn Ingi Pétursson was tempted to put his physical limits to the test in the near zero degree conditions. It took him well over an hour to feel whole again after the ablution.

    Ha Ha Ha…This is called Royal “Khaaz”! :-) No offense to Kristinn.ReplyCancel

A quick swing through the gem that is California‘s oldest state park, the Big Basin Redwoods State Park.

    Let me guess, that’s an Ent’s mailbox – correct?ReplyCancel

Feast for the soul.

Ketildalir (“Kettle Valleys”) are a series of valleys along Arnarfjörður in the Westfjords of Iceland. Resembling the snouts of mythical prehistoric creatures in repose, the mountains lining the fjord present an arresting spectacle.

My friend Kristinn Ingi Pétursson (seen in the images below) and I set out on a wintry afternoon along the only route in. Check out the short video of the highlights.

    I liked the video (accompanying music is very pleasant and soothing). Did you do the “Video with telemetry” experiment with Mr. Pindelski first before this shoot? The reason for asking this is that the mount on the car’s bonnet looks very similar to the one in his post. :-)ReplyCancel

      Premanand,

      No, the telemetry experiment was more recent, with the same mount and camera.ReplyCancel
