My Camera Gear
As a nature photographer with an interest in film, video & time-lapse, I use a wide range of gear; definitely far more than is good for me!
Quite often, when on a trip, I will be videoing my experiences, making a motion time-lapse and photographing landscapes or wildlife all at the same time.
When I started out, 30 years ago, I used Pentax film and then digital cameras. In 2014 I moved to Canon because of the range of lenses available.
At the moment I am shooting the Canon 5D mark iii, Canon 7D mark ii and I use an older 60D for time-lapses. I’ve decided not to upgrade for a while because these two bodies are work horses and do everything I need.
Recently, two things have changed: My eyesight is deteriorating and I am more interested in video - so I am looking for a Mirrorless body with EVF and I’m watching developments for a pro version of the Canon EOS R which I hope will have a faster frame rate. I’m also interested in the small M50 (I have since bought this and use it with an 11-22mm for vlogging).
Either way my next camera is likely to be mirrorless.
More generally, I feel lenses are better buys than cameras and try not to get sucked into marketing hype.
