Three brass bands and belly dancers brought the southeastern European spring festival Ederlezi to Vancouver Friday night, giving me chance to do some shooting. This was in the way of a test of both a new 55-250 Canon lens and my newish Canon T2i. Photos were shot RAW, using the P mode, and are untouched other the default conversion settings in Aperture 3. I’m really happy with Canon’s lowlight abilities: at 6400 ISO, the results are great for web publication, and I was able to shoot, in rather dismal light, at 1/30-1/60 of a second.

A note about the audio: I forgot to take my recorder along and wound up grabbing the sound on my iPhone, which is why it is a little less than stellar.
