I have started to spend some of the Jessops replacement product vouchers that I received for my Canon Eos 1ds mk2 camera that was damaged beyond repair in Sumbawa Lakey peak when my camera water housing leaked,.. (Archived here) below are some photos I have taken with it. It feels great to have super responsive full frame DSLR camera again and an assortment of lenses to choose from.. My whole blog for over 2 years has been decorated with photos from my small portable pocket point and shoot a Canon G10..it has served its purpose well but now I can step up my game again having stepped down for a while..
Another positive to what was a real tragedy at the time when my camera waterhousing leaked. The vouchers were for the same amount for a new camera so this has worked out well, I have managed to replace the original Mk2 with another I found on Ebay for a fifth of the price (this is as I still have the water housing and it has many years life still in it having been used only twice) However I have used the Jessops vouchers on a EOS Canon 7D which has HD filming capability. So below is a little test of its abilities in Bath Victoria Park on a sunny day the first time I have used it..

just a little edit of what was happening around at the time and my good friend Richard “Mr Riks” Brookes doing a few jumps and straddles to help me experiment with the 50 frames per second slow motion setting..
I used various lenses during this, all Canon as listed below for all who are interested in technical stuff
EF 70-200mm f2.8 L IS, EF 50mm f1.4 with macro screw on attachment, EF 16-35 f2.8, 15mm Fish Eye f 2.8..edited in Imovie
