New Toys

Some new toys arrived for me from Adorama today.

Heres the list...

-Canon Speedlite 430EX II Flash

-Tamrac MX5383 M.A.S. Flash Accessory Pocket (I'll be returning this not knowing the 430EX II came with a protective case)

-Sto-Fen OMEW Omni-Bounce Diffuser

-Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens (test shots below)

-Tiffen 52mm UV Protection Filter

-Canon ES-62 Lens Hood for EF 50mm f/1.8 II



I decided to test out the new lens and heres what I got.

Good color



Nice DOF



Foreground DOF is pretty good too



Excellent Gaussian effect



This is the same shot taken with my Canon 28-135mm 3.5/5 IS.. there is a big difference in the softness of the background.




I'm pretty excited to put this lens though its paces in a few weeks when I have another live show to go shoot at... this time I'll be bringing my own equipment to use.
