Garibaldi Provincial Park & the Canon EF 8-15mm f/4 L USM Fisheye Lens

I went for a 2 days hike a few days ago in Garibaldi Provincial Park, and brought my recently purchased Canon EF 8-15mm f/4 L USM Fisheye Lens with me. This lens provides 180° circular fisheye images on full-frame EOS models. In other words, a full 360 degree field of vision in the middle of the frame!

I wanted to share with you a few shots I took with this absolutely amazing lens!
This lens is razor sharp even wide open! I couldn’t get the full circular shot as I am using a Canon 1D Mark IV APS-H sized sensor (1.3x crop factor).

I didn’t use the 8-15 lens for the following shots, I just wanted to share those photos with you as Garibaldi Provincial Park is one of the most beautiful hike I have done in the area!

Induro Dual Range (DR) Hi-Hat Tripod Set

I’ve just received my new Hi-Hat Tripod today, I already own the CM34 Carbon 8X Monopod from Induro and found out that they were making that Hi-Hat Tripod.
It won’t be my main tripod but I always wanted to have a “more compact” option to carry with me when I’m shooting MTB or Ski videos. You can use the Induro Hi-Hat for both photography and video production and it is supporting a 100 kg load, each leg features a two section extension and three steps of variable angle adjustment. I’ve mounted a Manfrotto 701HDV Pro Fluid Video Mini Head on it.


*Update (Tuesday August 14th, 2012): I used it for the first time yesterday afternoon to get some footage of Jerome Clementz riding his Mountain Bike around Squamish (Full Nelson) and I loved using it. I can tell for sure that this tripod is robust, easy to carry and really quick to set up! I’ve found the pivoting foot with rubber grip really stable and helpful in some situation!
