Yesterday I took delivery of a Canon 550D. All of my previous photos have been taken on a 1000D and I was beginning to feel that it was holding me back somewhat, particularly in post processing, I needed something with greater resolution to achieve better HDR and clarity. I’m also doing something special next week and thought that a more professional camera would help me out a great deal.

Having only spent a few hours playing, trying to get used to the new location of function buttons and generally messing around I came home tonight and decided that I should actually try to ‘take a few photos’. I am immensely impressed with the difference in quality. The below was taken with 3 bracketed shots, 2 stops apart.

Dinner - Finished

I now want to revisit all of the locations I have UE’d and take the shots again.
