On my way back after the motorcycle accident, I had to sleep in the truck that was taking me and the bike back to Manali. The picture was shot at 5:30am, the sun was rising over the mountains.
I can tell you: the EOS 70D and the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 are a killer kit!
Unfortunately I had an accident with the motorbike while travelling to Ladakh. I injured my left hand and now I am stuck here in Old Manali, India, for some time. I spend most of the day walking around this mountain village, chatting with the people and taking pictures.
Just a pic to show you what amazing things you can do with the Canon EOS 70D and the awesome Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 Art lens. The both together make a fantastic kit. I am still working on a review of the Sigma, so stay tuned despite my laziness.
I shot the pic using the EOS 70D’s Dual Pixel AF. I get better results when using Dual Pixel AF with apertures below f/2.8. Possibly my Sigma sample has a back- or front-focusing issue. Not a real problem since Canon’s Dual Pixel AF copes very well with such issues. In other words: you have not to worry about back-focusing as long as you use Dual Pixel AF, it always gets it right. The pic was shot at night time, no flash, just an f/2 aperture at ISO 400 – not bad, isn’t it?
If you are backpacking in India and start from Delhi I recommend the Cottage Ganga Inn (no, I am not getting money for writing this). It’s a small hotel in the Paharganj district in New Delhi (the main backpacker hub in Delhi). An inexpensive hotel, clean, safe, and with a very helpful staff. Highly recommended. I am travelling with a lot of gear and had no problems letting my stuff in the room.
Have a great day wherever you are
I finally arrived in New Delhi, India. And that’s my favourite pic today. I was strolling around the Bazar area in Paharganj when I saw here. She didn’t say a word.
Follow me on 500px while I am on the road.
Tony Northrup reviewed the awesome Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 lens (using a Canon EOS 70D). The video review lasts 23 minutes and comes with lots of comparisons with other lens, sharpness tests and more. If you are on the fence for this phenomenal lens, then the video may deliver the answers you are looking for.
Pics and specs after the break.
