More Mark II magic performed by the Canon EOS 1D Mark II and my "toy lens," the old Canon EF 400mm f/5.6 L lens.


 I could not exist without BreezeBrowser.  When folks watch me edit my digital images using the slide show mode, they are blown away by how quickly BreezeBrowser loads the images.   In addition, the conversions are great and there are lots of great features (Show Focus Points, the High Quality option, and Show Flashing Highlights) that make my life easier.


Tips on how I use BreezeBrowser for editing, converting raw images, and file management are described in the Digital Basics PDF file

The Mark II's ability to consistently maintain accurate focus at close range is--in my experience--unprecedented... This image was made with the Canon EOS 1D Mark II Digital Camera and the EF 100-400mm IS L zoom lens.

Best and great picture making to all,
