This is the 1st time I use 7D for macro. Result is not as good as I expected. Probably is due to my lighting set-up. I need to improvise it.

However, the convenient of 7D is there, There are many aspects that I like in 7D when I shooting macro. One of them is the ability to change the focus point by using the joystick and doing it without referring to the LCD screen, and therefore I do not need to take my eyes off the viewfinder. Another is the lovely 100% viewfinder! Not to mention the lovely 3" LCD screen that I can use to check whether my focus is spot on (Well, my 1000D's screen looks awful and it is not convenient to check the focusing of objects).

New Gears in the House XIX

I have been using my 1000D since 532 days ago. I have gained a lot of knowledge through that camera, and it is time for me to move on.

I finally decided to purchase my EOS 7D today after much considerations of my current shooting style and needs. Another option was EOS 5D Mark II. However, due to several reasons, I picked EOS 7D instead.

The body costs me RM5,150 and the 8GB SanDisk Extreme CF Card costs me RM200. I wanted to buy the Phottix Cable Shutter Release but it was out of stock.

Price: RM 5,150.00 + RM200.00
Discount: -
Net: RM 5,350.00

Total spending to date: RM 14,114 .55

For my own record:
Last shutter count as at 17/07/10 = 14,972
Days of using 1000D: 532 days
