This is not a review on the DJI Osmo action camera or I am not going to be discussing the various settings within the action camera. There are other detailed videos on youtube. I am just going to talk about the things I like about the action camera and the things I don’t like about it. Here I had created a fun video of myself cycling at Sandwell Valley Country Park.
I had recently attended the photography show at the NEC which usually is held every year at the NEC in or around March but due to covid, the event took place after a gap of two years and that too in the month of September.
It is an event catered to photographers of any kind from professionals to amateurs and the venue hosts various exhibitors displaying their products or services. One can go there and test out various equipment before making any purchase plus a lot of other activities take place during the show.
For a while I had been planning to purchase a new camera. After researching online and by watching a number of youtube video reviews, I decided to go for the Canon EOS R which is a 30.3MP mirrorless camera. This has almost the same specifications as the Canon 5D Mark IV but where the Canon 5D Mark IV is a DSLR camera, this Canon EOS R is a mirrorless camera. The camera was purchased from Canon Image Square here in Dehradun.
For landscapes and even portraits, I use the combination of the Canon 5D Mark III wth the Canon 17-40mm f/4 L lens. Alot of photographers may not consider this to be a lens for portraits but I have created some interesting wide angle portrait images with this lens. It may not have a wide aperture compared to the more expensive prime lenses but still I personally feel that this is a good lens for portraits.
