New Full-Frame Camera & Ultra Wide-angle Lens!

I have been using my Canon EOS-1D Mark IV for about 3 years now (sports-oriented camera), but I have to admit that, in some situations, I missed the full frame sensor I used to have on my Canon EOS-5D Mark II.
A few weeks ago, I finally decided to offer myself the Canon EOS-1D X, to combine performance in one Full-Frame Sports Camera.

J’ai utilisé mon Canon EOS-1D Mark IV environ 3 ans maintenant (appareil orienté sport), mais je dois avouer que le plein format de mon ancien Canon EOS-5D Mark II, m’a manqué pour certaines prises de vues.
Il y a quelques semaines, j’ai finalement décidé de m’offrir le Canon EOS-1D X, afin de combiner les performances en un appareil Full-Frame Sportif.

I’m also adding an ultra wide angle lens to my kit, the Canon EF 14mm f/2.8 L II USM.
The widest wide angle lens I’ve used until now, was the Canon EF 17-40 mm f/4L.
Combined with my Canon EOS-1D Mark IV, it actually allowed me to shoot at an equivalent to 22-52mm on a full-frame body.
On the 1D X, the 14mm will be perfect for wide landscape, architecture both interior and exterior, ultra-tight spaces.

Je viens compléter également ma gamme d’objectifs par un ultra grand-angle, le Canon EF 14mm f/2.8 L II USM.
L’objectif grand-angle le plus large que je possédais jusqu’a présent était le Canon EF 17-40 mm f/4L.
Combiné avec mon Canon EOS-1D Mark IV, il me permettait en réalité des prises de vue équivalente à un 22-52mm sur un appareil plein format.
Sur le 1D X, le 14mm sera parfait pour les paysages larges, architecture à la fois intérieur et extérieur, les espaces ultra petit.

Lac de la Sassière by Night

Last Monday, we decided with a friend of mine to go for a night walk around the Lac de la Sassière to get some night shots as the sky was really clear.
We drove from Val d’Isère to the middle lake in between the Lac du Chevril and the Lac de la Sassière, then walked for about half hour, 45 minutes to get to the dam.
We stayed at least 3 hours shooting the sky and these are the shots I got from that night.

Lundi dernier, on a décidé avec un ami de partir pour une petite marche du coté du Lac de la Sassière et ainsi prendre des photos de nuit comme il n’y avait aucun nuage dans le ciel.
On est parti de Val d’Isère pour rejoindre le petit lac qui se trouve entre le lac du Chevril et celui de la Sassière puis on a marché pour une demi heure, trois quart d’heure jusqu’à atteindre le barrage.
On est ensuite resté 3 bonnes heures à prendre des photos du ciel et voici le résultat.

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!
