Photographic Equipment

I will shortly do a review of the photographic equipment that I use, including cameras, lenses, flash, Tripod and studio lighting. To do this review it is better that I list the equipment I use mostly for my photographic outings and shoots.

Cameras: Canon 7D and Canon 5D MK2

Lenses: Canon 70-200 F2.8, Canon 24- 105 F4 and Sigma 100-500 F6.5

Battery Grips: Canon BG-E7 (2)

Flash: Canon 580EX2

Tripod: Manfrotto 190XPROB

Monopod: Manfrotto

Camera Bag: Tamrac Expedition 9X

Studio Kit: Elinchrom D Lite It 4 Set

Backdrop: Wex Dual Background

Canon Remote Trigger and Endeloop Rechargable Batteries (8)

SanDisk Extreme 2 CF Cards 16GB (4)

Samsung Galaxy S3 Camera Phone

All of the above is the equipment I have and use on most photo shoots. The canon 7D and 70-200 lens are never parted and the 5D MK2 is always attached to the 24-105 unless in really good weather at football matches and only then will the Sigma lens be attached to either camera, the 7D being first choice.

My studio kit is fairly portable and including the backdrop fits nicely into most sitting rooms in an average house so is ideal for family portraits. A full review will follow in a future article.

Full reviews of most of my kit will feature over the coming weeks. These will not be technical reviews as they can be gotten of good websites, but user type reviews and how I use the cameras and what I think are the good and bad.
