Canon 5D Mark II in the Emerald City (Seattle, WA)

As I mentioned in a previous post, I used the Canon Powershot G12 almost exclusively when the wife and I went to Seattle. However, I decided to use the Canon 5D Mark II when I went up the Space Needle a second time. (Yes, you can come up one more time for the same ticket within 24 hours after your first visit.)

The afternoon the next day was much better than than first time the wife and I went up and, even before I took the elevator up, I've already decided thar I'll take sunset photos with the DSLR. I decided on using it because I realized that the bigger sensor of the 5D would give me more leverage regarding the noise brought by the higher ISO.

The photos made with the 5D are so much crisper than the ones made by the G12. Of course, that is to be expected considering that the sensor of the 5D is much bigger than that of the G12. I didn't do any noise reduction in all of the pictures I took and it is obvious that the noise is much controlled in the 5D.

Of course I'd still bring the 5D the next and succeeding times the wife and I have an adventure. I'd rather have it and not use it rather than want it but not have it, right?
