Los Angeles And The Observatory – Canon 5DSR

This is a quick shot of the Observatory. I wanted to test out the Canon 5DSR so I hiked up the mountain overlooking Los Angeles. This was my first time up and wow, what a view!

If you ever visit Los Angeles this is something you must do. Just bring a long lens. I shot this with the Canon 70-200 but did a pretty mean crop. But hey, that’s what having 50 megapixels is for right?

There are also a lot of different angles from a lot of different places you can shoot this from. This is just the first one I picked.

Working with these giant RAW files is actually a major pain. I’m not sure if Lightroom just doesn’t love the Canon RAW files yet, (I’ve heard that there are still issues) but it is chuggy. 

Same is true with the Sony A7r II but it’s not quite as bad. Even in Photoshop, doing simple things like brushing in an adjustment layer is a major time sink. 

Having a bazillion megapixels is nice, but it puts a major dent in the efficiency and speed of your workflow.
