Today I was chatting with a couple of our regular DPS writers and decided to do a quick survey of the type of camera gear that they’re using. I thought it might make an interesting post to pull it all together. As you’ll see a few themes emerge.
I asked each writer four questions:
Which camera they use, what are their most used lenses, what their favorite accessories are and what their first digital camera was (I thought this one might be good for a giggle). Here’s what they each replied:
What Camera Do You Use?: Canon EOS 5d
Favorite Accessories: 5 in 1 collapsible reflector/ and a collapsible diffuser
First Digital Camera: Nikon d70s (actually if we’re going WAY back, my first camera was some strange sony model)
Favorite Accessories: Battery Grips / Alien Bee transmitters
First Digital Camera: Sony Mavica .9mp with 1.4″ floppy disk
Most Used Lenses: My walkaround lens, on for 80-90% of my photos is the excellent Tamron 24-135mm. Great value for money and high quality. Second to that I most love shooting with my Sigma 8mm fisheye. It’s the most fun I have with my camera.
Favorite Accessories: Although they’re unreliable and a source of endless frustration, my ebay wireless flash remotes have revolutionised how I shoot. I’m looking forward to the new RadioPoppers for affordable reliability. Second to that, I really like my cable release. It lets me get the long exposure shots of the night sky that I love taking.
First Digital Camera: An ancient, but good for it’s time, 2Mp Canon A200. I still have it, but never use it.
Favorite Accessories: SB600 flash units for off camera lighting an Manfrotto ball-head tripod
First Digital Camera: First DSLR Nikon D70 and First digital camera (Kodak something… very old.)
Most Used Lenses: I use a 28-300mm Canon lens most all the time. Heavy SOB, but great fun.
Favorite Accessories: The power grip for the 5D. With the larger lens it really is well balanced with the power grip. Other than that, my other favorite accessory is organic chocolate.
First Digital Camera: My first digital camera was a G1, purchased right before my daughter was born in 2001. I think they are on G1000 by now.
What Camera Do You Use?: I use the Canon EOS 1D Mark II N
Most Used Lenses: Canon 24-70, L series, 2.8
Favorite Accessories: Case for all of my memory cards
First Digital Camera: Canon D40 [the o.l.d. version]
