I just got my grubby little mitts on one of the newish Canon 500D Digital SLR camera's.

This was my first time out with the camera and I only had about an hour and half, which was a shame, because I think I could have stayed up in that rainforest all day it was that fun.

Shot on the stock 18-55 lens and an old 70-300.

I was quite impressed with the quality of the footage and love the depth of field, but I can't wait to get some fast lenses, as the ones I have leave quite a bit to be desired.

All shots are straight out of the camera with no colour correction.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
