Canon 5D Mark III settings for Wedding Photographers

I purchased a Canon 5D Mark III recently to compliment my Canon 5D Mark II.  So far, I absolutely love the new Mark III.  The autofocus is much more accurate and faster, especially in low light, and the silent shutter mode is a blessing during ceremonies.  With the 5D Mark II, I got in the habit to only use the center focus point for everything.  The outer focus points on the Mark II are simply not that reliable.  I do NOT have this problem on the new camera body (Mark III).  I can also see about a stop difference in noise at higher ISOs in favor of the Mark III over the Mark II. While searching for information on the Mark III, I came across this site that has some very useful camera settings that make the Mark III become an even better tool for event work:  Canon EOS 5D Mark III AF and Custom Function Settings

The Greater Cleveland Aquarium

I finally made a trip down to the old Powerhouse building to view the new Cleveland Aquarium.  I knew that going on a weekend (Saturday in my case) would most likely mean a larger crowd and that was definitely the case.  I brought my mother along so she could see the Aquarium for the first time as well.  At $21.95 for adults and $15.95 for children (ages 2-12), the entry fee for a family of four can cost you a decent investment.  The Admission fee may scare a few people away but the rates are on par with Aquariums in other cities.
