I broke down. For a very beautiful toy ... A little madness. But he's really too hot, 7D! Already, in September 2008, I was bucking on the very first SLR making video. This time, that's it. A year and a half later, I have mine.

Not easy to choose

It took me a while to decide for the Canon Eos 7D ... I skimmed forums, comparisons, reviews on photo blogs, specialized magazines ...

I have it in hand for a few days. I explore one by one its features. My poor little compact A95 (a Canon, too), who faithfully accompanied me for four years, until this memorable photocatastrophic saga in Thailand last year, lies on a shelf.

On land as under water, I feel I have really gone around the possibilities of my compact camera. He had for him to be small, light, discreet. But more and more frustrating. For a long time I wanted to switch to SLR. It is done.

I now want to progress in photography. And in video.

A box to take the 7D underwater

The problem is that I will have to go back to ... for a waterproof case, because I also want to take the beast under the water.

In the box, it will add at least one flash, and then a macro lens to photograph the tiny underwater creatures that I love so much ...

And then, to store images and videos, you'll have to invest in memory cards that are bigger and faster than before. I'm not at the end of my troubles ...

In addition, I may have to revisit completely my package Plunging diver to lug all this little world ... It promises.
