My Camera Equipment

The images within these Galleries were taken using a whole range of different cameras including 35mm SLR film and APS cameras. That is why some images in a few of the Albums, have scanned image tags.



My first digital camera was a Sony compact which in terms of flexibility and image editing capabilities, came as a revelation to some one who had been somewhat put off by the costs of film processing.

My first digital single lens reflex camera was a Canon EOS 350D followed by the purchase of a second unit to avoid the need to change lenses in salty and sand filled environments. These were followed by a Canon EOS 20D and Nikon Coolpix P5000 compact.

My cameras and lenses now include Canon EOS 5D MkIII and Canon EOS 5D MkIV bodies together with a Canon EF 100 L Macro, Canon EF 16 - 35mm L wide angle lens, Canon EF 100 - 400mm MkII L, Canon EF 70 - 200mm L and EF 24 - 70mm L lenses. I have tried an Opticron spotting scope connected to the Nikon P5000 but due to the nature of the mounting arrangement, the results have been disappointing.

I also regularly use a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 Bridge Camera. My aim in purchasing this item was to reduce the weight of equipment carried on every day photo shoots. So far the results with this camera have been excellent with its Leica lens providing good images at the maximum zoom range (400 mm DSLR equivalent).




The image above was captured with the EOS 5D MkIV camera. Viewed as a full sized file on a large screen monitor the detail available is remarkable.
