A new gadget and a promise

Marius Arnesen Long exposure London

Yes, I have returned from the Future of Web Apps conference. And I will post an article with some impressions.

And I have invested in a new gadget. Let’s see if you can guess what it is. It’s not me in that image, but I shot it. And in theory you find the answer in the exif data of the image.

And the person in the image? No other than Mr. HappyGoLucky himself.

Update:
You find the image that Mr. HappyGoLucky is shooting here.

A new gadget and a promise

    Maybe I’ll not up-to-date, but as far as I know you did not have a digital SLR camera…

    The EXIF says it’s shot with a Canon 400D, so maybe a “CONGRATULATION !” is required?

    If that’s considered a “gadget”… I would.

  2. Yepp. A Canon 400D. But the most important thing is not reflected in the exif data: Canon EF-S 17-55 2.8 IS. Pretty amazing optics. Guess the Camera needs a separate post as well. I guess Oyvind wouldn’t consider it new, because he knows that I have owned it for a week. The gorillaPod was a good guess though…

    So now you also have a Cannon EOS, but of course a 400D newer and better then mine 300D. Congratulations, nice camera and not at least a nice lens. That would fit my camera? I would like to try it at our next visit.

  4. As far as I know the lens works perfectly well on a 300D. So does the 60mm Macro that I also bought… 🙂

    Have lots of colleagues with Canon cams. And interesting optics. How about a Russian fish eye?

    I’m considering the exact same combination of camera/lens, but I’m concerned that it will become very ‘front heavy’ with the rather large lens and the relatively small/light camera body. Ideally I was hoping for an upgrade to the 30D these days to go with that lens. Any comments based on your experience with the Canon EF-S 17-55 2.8 IS / 400D combo?
