iPhone 7 can capture beautiful images

I captured this on the iphone 7 using ProCam app that allowed me to save as a raw file and edit in Lightroom later. Click for bigger.

Sydney Harbour and Luna Park on a cool winter evening

I was waiting for a relative and had an hour to walk around under the Sydney Harbour Bridge with my XPro1 and 18-55 lens. No tripod in hand, I had to improvise. Sydney’s Vivid light festival was about to launch, hence the colourful cityscape. All these were shot raw and edited in Lightroom. Enjoy. Click images for bigger view.

Endeavour on Sydney Harbour with 7dii and 24-105mm in rain

On Australia Day this year we were fortunate to get a berth on the Endeavour, a direct replica of the original Endeavour that travelled from London to Sydney over 200 years ago. This trip around Sydney harbour made me realise how incredible the trip was in cramped conditions in rough and merciless seas.

The 7d ii and 24-105mm held up incredibly well in very trying conditions, and the weather sealing had a thorough testing and survived incredibly well. Unfortunately the rain and overcast conditions were not ideal, but I’m reasonably happy with the results. I shot most picture in Manual mode with auto ISO so I could easily set me shutter speed and aperture as required.
