Accessories Now Making the 5D really usable.

There is a flood of accessories available for use with the Canon 5D. This is the RedRock Micro DSLR Cinema Bundle. Shown here with optional blue focus gears.

Carl Zeiss has launched a new series of compact prime lenses, for further reading see their release.

Last Minutes With Odin.

Ciaran found this incredible and very moving short film.
Shot on the Canon 7D, it tells the story of Jason Woods' last moments with his dog before it has to be put down due to illness. I think it's beautifully shot and well edited.
Credits as follows,

Director of Photography: Luke Korver, Matt Taylor
Song: Big Red Machine / Justin Vernon + Aaron Dessner

Oliver Comerford at the RHA

Maybe its becuase Oliver Commerford's painting look like the photographs I'd love to have taken but I'm really drawn to the work he has in the RHA at the moment. I wish I'd seen his work before. I'm off to research. There are some similarities in style with Colin Martin, another brilliant artist who's work I'm very fond of. Images copyright Colin Martin and Oliver Commerford. See also RHA site for Colin and Kevin Kavenagh Gallery for Oliver.
