Time to Upgrade

I’ve been looking into upgrading to a medium format camera for some time now but, my business didn’t warrant that large a format – especially at that high a cost…very high cost. But, Canon has raised the bar for the Digital SLR and came out with a new series of cameras that are extremely sharp at 50 Megapixels. So, of course, I had to order the Canon EOS 5DS-R. I was intrigued by the fact that they have removed the effects of the high pass filter, one of the things that made the medium format cameras so sharp. Don’t get me wrong, I know that the sensor is much smaller and will not have the dynamic range of a medium format camera but, I think it will be an improvement over the 5DMark II.

I pre-ordered from B&H Photo and Video and I’ve been waiting and waiting for delivery. Well, it finally arrived yesterday  I studied the new features, ran some tests and even upgraded my software so I can use the new camera in the studio. So, now, I am ready to rock and roll. 

When I get the chance, I’ll do some photos with the new camera and show you the results.

Please visit my new portfolio at www.photography-by-jerry.com and I hope you enjoy viewing it as much as I did shooting it. My latest photo book can be seen HERE. You can always contact me by e-mail at jerry@photography-by-jerry.com. Thanks for reading.


About Jerry

I was a science teacher for 31 years. During that time I photographed wedding and Bar Mitzvahs for about 15 years but that was in the days before digital. Being a teacher, I had my summers free so I assisted food and commercial still life photographers in NYC for 3 summers and fell in love with it. Having a wife and a mortgage, it was not practical to give up a job in teaching and go into photography so I put off my dream of becoming a food photographer until I retired from teaching. Now I am living my dream - I am a food and product photographer servicing New York City, Philadelphia and all of New Jersey.
