I’m getting back to work after a nice little holiday with a couple of great friends In Istanbul over the last week. Sitting back down to the computer today i’ve been having a little play around with the new Lightroom 3 Beta which was released last week. If you haven’t used Lightroom before or are unsure about the programme then i suggest downloading it for free from Adobe.

The download is free until Adobe releases the actual version in the spring of next year. Until then i recommend downloading and seeing just how many uses Lightroom has for the digital photographer. If you take a lot of images and need ways to catalogue them then Ligtroom should be your first port of call, simple as that.

As well as trying out the new Lightroom i also had chance to play with the Canon G10 all of last week. I’ve wanted to try one out for a long time now and i found it so much fun, versatile and a whole lot lighter then carrying around a Canon 1d mark III which is often the case.

I like the G10 so much that i’d really like to get my hands on the new and updated G11 which has started to hit the shops now.

Last week appears to be a busy one as Canon announced a new version of my Camera in the 1D Mark IV. Tech specifications are springing up over the internet now and it looks juicy to say the least, although price may be an issue for many with talk of a £4500 RRP in the UK. Ouch.
