On Saturday I will have had my 30D for exactly four years. In those four years the camera has done 27,773 exposures, or 19 clicks a day on average.
Out of those 27,773 exposures I have …
- Kept 10,668 original raws and jpegs, which means I did 2.6 clicks for each kept photo.
- Taken 2,724 (25,5%) vertical shots and 7,944 (74,5%) horizontal shots.
- Made 27 panoramas.
- Made 131 HDR’s.
Someone asked me, at the photography course last week, what I usually photograph. I’m always stumped by that question and never have a good answer. But now I do.
I’ve put all the 10,668 photos together into a stop motion video, or a 25 frame per second slide-show if you wish. This is probably not interesting to anyone but myself, but I guess it may inspire some other crazy (creative?) person to do the same with their photos. It does make your eyes rather sore after a few minutes though …
Here’s a table showing which lenses I’ve used the most:
|Lens||Number of kept photos|
|Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5||4,864|
|Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6||1,967|
|Canon EF 50mm f/1.4||1,495|
|Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS||1,433|
|Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6||519|
|Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS||384|
|Canon EF 80-200mm f/4.5-5.6||4|
|Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro||2|
My workhorse has obviously been the Sigma 17-70mm, and it has served me well. In January I got a second hand Canon 17-55mm IS and sold the Sigma. The last two lenses in the table belong to a friend, I just tried them once.
The longest exposure I’ve taken was 28 minutes 25 seconds:
Tomorrow (Friday) there’s a guy coming over who is interested in buying the 30D. This camera has a lot of life left in it, so whoever gets it I’m sure they’ll have plenty of fun with it.
