Recently Canon reached into their lucky-dip hat sitting in the office with a bunch of names in it and pulled out mine. At least thats the visual I get when I think about how they came up with the idea of giving me the privilege of being one of the first in the country to take delivery of the Canon EOS 5DSr. The idea is to take it out in the field to share some creative blood, sweat and tears and then report back and give an informative talk about the camera to a room full of megapixel hungry consumers in what will be the official launch of the camera here in Western Australia. Hrmm maybe they drew straws?
On a serious note thank you to Canon Australia and Camera Electronic for making this happen. This is a first for me and I am truly honoured to be recognised and entrusted with this. I guess all these years I must have been doing something right afterall.
So today I picked up the 50 megapixel Canon EOS 5DSr and its currently sitting right next to me. It looks good, it feels good. I like the gold/champagne box, that was a nice touch. I have already ventured out into the field. Literally, a field. I am not a landscape photography by any means but its a great little location near my house and it was a good warm up for me to get aquainted with the camera. As of tomorrow I will continue using it and I will be sharing updates on my Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
Then providing I dont elope with this camera and leave the country, come 6pm Thursday 18th June at the Oxford Hotel I should have some great work to show you all and plenty of insight into this new bad boy from Canon. More information on the launch evening can be found in the flyer below. If you have any questions about the 5DS or 5DSr camera you would like addressed, please drop a comment below or get in touch!
