T1i

How could I have forgotten?

Goodness, I bought it like, almost a whole month ago.

Yes, that’s right. I sold my Rebel XS and bought the brand new Rebel T1i (500D) which gives me all my former Rebel goodness + full 1080p HD video!

Among the other favorite features, I’m also really happy about the 12 800 ISO, which is a vast improvement over the 1600 I was using before. My night shots are so crisp and clean. The ISO grain at 1600 is almost completely gone. Of course, you get it back when you are shooting upwards 3200-6400+ but it isn’t nearly as bad as before, and, honestly, what can you expect?

I shot with the kit lens (f3.5) in a candle lit room and got clean shots at 1/8 a second. Cool!

I’ll be working more with the video this summer, and will post to let you know when things come out on my currently empty Vimeo page.

Happy shooting!

New project:

Do you have a face?
Can you say your own name?
Do you own a camera of any kind that can take short video?

Then you qualify!

In the inspiration of the stop motion beatbox and Potter Puppet Pals we’re going to make our own.

What you have to do:
Make a small, few second clip of your face saying your name. You can say it however you want, and being different is encouraged (we don’t need a whole load of the same thing from different people.)

Send your video to icecalibre *at*  icecalibre *dot*  com and watch the blog for updates!

Have fun with it!

Fresh Start

So kids, let’s get to it.

Basically, I’m overhauling the entire system.

Instead of the labourous process of posting the photos to the blog, I am going to simply use flickr and link.

The blog, instead will be used for updates and *new* group projects.

That’s right. I’m going to have projects that require user imput to shape.

I have a few planned, but you will find out soon enough.

So, the new site is coming!

Where Am I?
