Canon 5D Classic – Day One
I purchased my first dSLR in February 2008 – Canon Rebel XTi. That camera had served me well for three years, making trips across the country and never skipping a beat. Always performing above and beyond what I ever expected of it especially towards present day when it approached being 5 years since the release date of the camera. In January I went down to Florida and as we boarded the plane the camera wouldn’t turn on — just totally dead. I left it in the hotel room and felt I was missing out on some great shots, but it was sort of a nice break to not be trying to always grab that picture and just enjoying vacation, which is probably something I really needed.
Upon returning from Florida, I called up Canon and sent the camera in for repair. After the issue was repaired and the camera was returned to me, I decided it was time to upgrade cameras. After a ton of research and insight from friends I knew that I wanted to go full frame and a used Canon 5D showed up at my apartment about two weeks later. The images in this post are some shots from the first day using the camera — what a solid piece of equipment; even after being released for 6 years, it still produces stunning images.
