The UPS man just dropped off a new toy. Canon’s latest piece of glass is a 8-15mm fish eye zoom. I always did have a soft spot for wide angles. Now I can satisfy that urge to the point of uber excess. Can’t wait to take this thing out on the water and put it thru some paces. Until then, I’m stuck with lens testing around the house. Sure looks sharp so far …. watch your toes.

Interesting news out of Hollywood today – The season finale of the U.S. TV series House, airing tonight (Monday, May 17 (8:00-9:01 PM ET/PT)), was captured with Canon’s EOS 5D Mark II. This makes it “the first network television prime time drama episode to be shot entirely on a Digital SLR camera,” says a Canon USA press release. In addition to shooting the episode on the Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Canon EF lenses were used for a complete Canon workflow for image capture. Recording every second of footage to compact flash cards, the crew for HOUSE took full advantage of a completely digital workflow and was able to complete filming the entire episode in just 10 days. That is pretty amazing how far the DSLR has come. Yikes, why does it take me several weeks to edit a batch of fish pictures?
