Yesterday was the first day I was able to try out my new Canon Rebel T2i DSLR out in the wilds. And, what better way to do that than with a trip up to the North Cascades HWY for some backcountry skiing. It was a beautiful day for being out which meant, somewhat unfortunately, it was also very bright out. (Combine a strong May sun reflecting off all the surrounding snow-covered peaks, and you have found the ingredients for tough shooting conditions.)
I wasn’t really going for any epic backcountry skiing photos this time around, so for the most part I just took out the 2Ti and shot away. I did very little post-processing to the below images. First impression: the image quality from this camera (with the cheapo kit lens no less) was quite nice. I did manage a very short HD video clip as well, and wow, I’m impressed.
After a bit more use of the camera, I’ll post a “review” of sort.
