Very helpful review of Jeff Ascough’s use of the Canon 1DMKIV in low light for wedding pictures.
As far as I am aware these are the first wedding images shot and published with the new camera anywhere in Europe, and possibly the world. Canon only allow a very select group of photographers to use their pre-production cameras, and I belong to that group - which I find very humbling.
To give you all a little insight into my experience with Canon cameras; I have been a 1 series user for pretty much the past fifteen years. I started with a 1N, then a 1V then onto 1DMKII, 1DMKIIN, 1DSMKII, 1DsMKIII, 5DMKII, and now 1DMKIV. I am totally familiar with the 1 series, and how it operates.
Claude Lévi-Strauss, 100, one of the preeminent social anthropologists of the 20th century, whose erudite, often mind-bendingly labored studies of indigenous Brazilian tribes led to influential theories examining human behavior and culture, died over the weekend in Paris.
Rest in peace Claude Lévi-Strauss. I remember the 1st time I heard about you in Intro Anthropology and enjoyed learning about your theory of “structuralism”.
