It seems that, this time, Sony has made a camera that will make even the most steadfast DSLR shooters pause and consider mirrorless cameras, if only for a second. That, in itself, makes the a7RII a huge accomplishment and makes me extremely lucky for the opportunity to take it out for a test drive.

Ten years ago, in 2005, Canon broke new ground in the imaging world with the EOS 5D, the first full-frame DSLR to feature a body size similar to that of a 35mm film SLR. Today, Canon is still revolutionizing the industry with the 5D series, most recently with the jaw-dropping 50.6-megapixel resolution of the 5DS and 5DS R, announced in February. In order to celebrate this decade of innovation, let’s take a quick look back at the most notable features and trends introduced by the 5D series.

And it begins


Well, this time had to eventually come. All media people have to show their stuff in some aggregated manner, and a blog is perhaps the simplest and most efficient way of doing that.

My name is Shawn Steiner and I am a photographer, videographer, writer and whatever else happens to pique my interest at that given moment. I will leave the work I post here to finish off my profile. And if you would like you can simply check out my bio.
