During a vacation trip to the southern part of Sweden - Skåne I took my 5D mkII, Canon 70-200/4 IS, Zeiss 35/2.0 and camera slider with me.

I captured some of the beautiful sights I saw and made this short piece showing this part of Sweden and some of my camera work using these lenses and the slider. The slider I have is the pro version from slidekamera.com.

I went a bit different this time with settings on the 5D mkII. I used higher shutter speeds to preserve as much detail as possible, avoiding motion blur. In my bag I even had a Fader ND but I'm leaving these to others. They take away to much sharpness even on shorter focal lengths It's better to have fixed ND but also more cumbersome or do what I did - raise the shutter.

I used Avid MC but didn't do any grading this time. All exposures is pretty much spot on and these days I seldom miss exposure because I know DSLRs very well after using D90, GH1, 7D and now 5D mkII.

The 5D mkII is such a great camera for both stills and video and I love the mix when having Zeiss lenses on. They are superior even to Canon L lenses I think.

Sadly I had a mishap with the Zeiss 35/2.0. It was in the backseat of the car and when I had to break hard and it got a bump on the focus ring. It got stuck, but when I came home I manage to make it work again albeit with an ugly bump on the ring...
