ABOUT MY KIT

WEAPONS OF CHOICE

Photography is a great hobby for those that love gear and love to get geeky about the latest offerings from manufacturers. It’s also increasingly a great hobby for looking back too – and reliving and reviving some of the equipment of yesteryear.

_Lomo

I’m no different, and have a range of cameras and accessories from the latest Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM to a (growing) collection of film cameras such as an Olympus A-1, and a Canon Canonet Half Frame.

SERIOUS STUFF

For serious project work, I typically shoot with the following;

  • Cloudy DayCanon 5D MKII
  • 24-105mm f/4 L
  • 50mm F/1.8
  • 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM
  • 100mm f/2.8L macro

FUN STUFF

For more creative stuff, I also have;

  • Lensbaby Spark
  • Samyang 14mm f/2.8

When I’m out and about;

Panasonic Lumix TZ-601_spiral Cow and web

Great zoom range and some very nice creative features.

Also shoots full manual and in Raw format.

Something I’ve started to get into in the last 9 months or so. I took my old G10 and had it professionally converted to Infrared – takes some great images.

I’m not an Apple person, I love Android. I’ve also tried just about every photo app going and have narrowed it down to the three listed.

Film Cameras

A growing collection, much to the annoyance of Mrs C;

  • Lomo Russia Day Limited Edition (pictured at the top)
  • Self built plastic TLR that takes 35mm film
  • Olympus A-1 rangefinder
  • Agfa something or other
  • Canon Canonet (in need of some TLC)

Accessories;

Too numerous to mention here, but the usual collection of flash guns, tripods, monopod, some filters. Also a home lighting studio with three strobes and a background stand with black, white and green screens.

Recently I’ve added two umbrella boxes to the collection (80cm and 120 cm) these are great with a flash and so quick to set up – highly recommended.
