Sweet Baby 7D!
The past two days have been crazy busy and it is way too cold in North Carolina. However, all is well because I finally have not one but TWO Compact Flash cards for my brand new Canon 7D camera. After going through Google Reader and returning as many emails as possible, I thought I’d take a few pictures. Of course, I could have take pictures of anything, but I really wanted to take advantage of the my higher ISO capabilities. Here are a few SOOC shots:
ISO 1000, f/2.8, 1/40 sec.

ISO 1600, f/2.8, 1/25 sec.

ISO 2500, f/2.8, 1/13 sec.

Pretty sweet eh? Sure, you can see a little bit of noise…but, I used to get that kind of noise at ISO 400, so I am absolutely thrilled. Now, I just gotta work on my Scavenger Hunt photos…I haven’t started! For more “sweet” shots, go to:

    Love the second one. Isn’t it fun to have a new toy.

    Great shots!!! Yes…..I love that there’s less noise! That’s all I had with my old one as soon as fall hit!

    So cool! The pictures are all great and I hope you have fun with your new toy!

    It’s sweeeeet, isn’t it!!!!? WOOO! Gotta love that Canon 7D! Oh I forgot to tell ya a couple days ago that I shipped out a special little blue dude ;-)

    YAY!! I’m so glad you’re finally getting to use it! These are great shots and I think for these particular shots, the little bit of noise adds to the feel of the photo!

    Wonderful photos Ashley. I have a 7D and love it. Hope you do as much as I do.

    All the technical camera language – I hope to learn someday! I just purchased Photoshop CS5 for my Mac and it is still sitting in the box… I also need (want) a new camera! I have a tuxedo kitty, too. She is so very fun – looks a lot like yours.

    I love my 7D. Still getting used to it, but love the SOOC pics it gives. Thanks for sharing. Blessings, SusanD

    Great shots!!!
    Kisses, Zondra Art

    Congrats on the new camera! My photo buddy has that one and it is sweet! These are great SOOC!

    I love the second one… and congratulations on your new toy! =)

    Love your new plaything.. well deserved….great shots, but then ya know I am a SOOC kind of girl!

    those are great…having equipment jealously…

    The higher iso is a life saver on 5D/7D. I even had a few cases where I needed to shoot at 6400 and it looked just fine.

    I love your kitty!!!

    oh wow I love it! I just posted a photo yesterday that I took at 800 ISO, way more noise than any of these!

    Merry Christmas to you! Yay on your new camera. I’m just trying to curb my want for an upgrade. I’ve been bad at visiting lately, but I’m going to try to be a better bloggy friend and make some comments. (your header with KP is hilarious.)

    Great low light photos. Love the clarity that you were able to get with the new camera. Early Christmas gift? Good for you and for sharing what it can do. I would love to own a Nikon that does better in low light but that would mean I would have to get a outside job to pay for it. Not something I am able to do at the present time.

    Congrats on the new camera!! Nothing like a new toy :) I also got a new one for the holidays, but I haven’t written about it yet patyly because I’m still in shock that I spent so much on a camera :o/ Needless to say, this will be the one and only gift for me this Christmas!

    Wow! My poor little camera can’t handle low light at all, these look fabulous!

    Maybe one day I’ll seriously think about upgrading :)

    Love the shots and can’t wait to see more pictures taken with the new camera.

    Ooooooooo. Pretty.

    like I said before, even though its a Canon I’m still jealous!! =)

    Good for you and your new toy!! Enjoy it.

    Glad you love the new camera! I’m sure it will become your new, trusted, faithful companion. I get much more noise at 400 (and it’s so aggravating!) than these have, I can’t wait to make the upgrade, too.

    Lovely! I hear ya sister. I feel like a bird set free with the ISO handling capabilities of my new baby. I crank that bad boy over 1600 without a second thought. :)

    Nice when you get a new toy to play with.

    Oh yes! The 7D is amazing in low lighting… I’m in love with mine! Those SOOC shots are great!

    Fabulous! Glad you’re enjoying it!

    great photos! isn’t the higher ISO awesome? i love the second one.

    That’s amazing! I have a Canon 40D but anything higher than 800 ISO is useless!

    Oh oh a 7D? Woo hoo, congrats! : ) I’m toying between that or the 5D… one of those will be my next step up. Lovely photos.. how fun! : )

    I have the Canon 7D as well and just love love love it. Though expensive, I have really felt that it was the best money I spent in a long time! It is my first dSLR, so I don’t know what the lower models are like, but felt that this one really is a great camera.

    Great sooc shots. 1600 on mine is slightly grainy…not too bad. But for 2500 those looks great! Yay for a new toy!!


    yayyyy for a new camera!! Love the first pictures!

    scavenger hunt??? Oh crud!

    Sweet, indeed! Enjoy!!

    You are going to have such fun with the new camera

    These are lovely shots Ashley and I couldn’t see much noise at all on my screen.

    I’ve only got one shot for Sunday so far – I hope I can participate this week……..the rest of SH photos are probably going to have to be indoor shots this week and I don’t like taking photos indoors lol

    Ashley just to let you know that the scavenger hunt info for next Sunday is still showing last weeks hunt selection.

    SOOC pictures are ALWAYS sweet!!!! Love these Ashley!

    Darn. I may be slightly jealous. But only slightly because I have soooo much more to learn before I get another camera. I’ll wait and just watch what wonderful shots you come up with with your new 7D. :)

    Lovely!!! so jealous! I need classes!!

    So neat Ash!

    Oh so pretty! Love the second one.

    I’ve been out of touch lately and spending more time on Christmas than on the computer. CONGRATULATIONS on your new camera!!!! Can’t wait to see more pictures!!!

    Oooh…congrats on the new camera! :) Love your shots!

    You got the 7D, I see. Very nice!
    If I had one, I’d probably try to experiment with video stuff, but it’ll be a while before I can even afford a T1i.

    Congrats on the 7D!! I’m so jealous! :)

    I have toy envy :) Have fun with the new camera!

    Nice – I’m trying not be jealous of your new 7D! Have fun with it. Love the second photo.

    Oh my goodness- my tuxedo kitty has the same black spot on his chin too. How funny is that!! Happy to have found you through the You Capture Hop today.

    Glad you are having fun with the new up grade. these are awesome.

    Those ornaments are so cute! I love the photos you’re taking with your upgrade!

    All these beautiful Xmas photos sure put me in the spirit! XOXO
    Have fun!

    Your second shot is beautiful.

    Plus i’m a sucker for a black and white cat so I love that shot. :)

    I adore you, your 7D, Kitty Paw & all that talent <3

    Congratulations on the new camera. These shots are great!

    That is AMAZING!!! WOW!! Congratulations on the new camera :) It’s a very merry Christmas for you!

    Awesome!!! Have fun!

    7D….I am totally drooling. I am SURE you will make excellent use of it. Love the angle on the Santa ornament too.

    Congrats on the 7D! Totally jealous. :) I love the second shot.

    Have fun learning your new camera! I <3 your kitty! I miss having a kitty around...

    I have some ideas for my scavenger hunt, but haven’t gotten the pics yet. With it getting so dark so early, I’m really limited to pic taking time…

    Ooo, I’m so jealous of the new camera. I want one so bad!!!

    Congratulations! You are going to rock the 7D!

    Sweet new piece of hardware you have there! I bet you are going to love it! Looks like Santa came early :)
