One advantage of the new Canon 5-D camera all the staff has now is that it is a full frame digital.  That is, the sensor records the image, at the true millimeter, just like the "old" film days.  So while our Nikons (and, yes, some other models of Canon like the Mark III, 30-D, etc.) record a magnification of the actual focal length (a 20mm would become a 30mm due to the smaller digital sensor in those cameras), the 5-D gives a much wider view.
The photo below of Mid-Town Barbers owner Brian Stortzum was my hot weather feature I shot Aug. 8 as he used an umbrella to carry his own shade.  It was one of our updates and was up on the home page for a couple of hours.  You may have heard of photogs doing a "Hail Mary", shooting blind by holding the camera overhead and hoping the framing is good.  Well, this is a little like that, but I shot very LOW to the ground, not looking through the camera and hoping the framing was good!  You can see from the other shot that shooting a low "Hail Mary" takes a lot of frames to make it right.  The power lines are brutal.


Canon 5-D, 400 ISO, 20mm (zoom lens) f13, 1/400th, aperture priority.
