Kent Wedding Photographer in Thanet

All of the following shots were taken with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II.

The wedding was held at the Smiths Court Hotel, Cliftonville, with the ceremony taking place in the hotel's orangery resulting in lots of lovely natural light but also lots of backlit shots. Rather than putting the camera in manual mode I decided to stick to aperture priority with exposure compensation.

The 5D Mk2 looks like a winner. I'll get one soon, but wonder if you use yours with the optimsed EG-S focusing screen? Does this benefit viewing if using auto-focus - or is it purely to assist manual focus?

Hi Jemal,

The 5D Mk II is a great performer when paired with top-notch lenses. A powerful computer is also a necessity - post-processing requires some serious CPU power!

I don't have the EG-S focusing screen and don't intend to buy one. I installed the equivalent Ee-S focusing screen on the 5D, which is solely to aid manual focus, but found that I only use autofocus nowadays anyway. It's much more accurate than my eyesight!
