Last spring I did a 3-part "What's In My Camera Bag" series (you can view part 1 here, part 2 here, and part 3 here). I've had a few changes since that time so I decided it was time to do an update post.
I took these photos in my studio after a photo session so bonus points if you can spot any footprints on the backdrop!
Canon 7D Mark II. I sold my 70D and bought this body when it came out. This is essentially my dream camera for shooting surfing. There are a lot of aspects that make it very similar to my 5D Mark III. It has a really, really nice focus system and when it shoots bursts of photos it sounds like a machine gun. I've been taking lots of photos of my cat playing in the yard. I may or may not narrate to myself as if I'm on Animal Planet.
Canon 200mm f2 lens. This is my dream lens. I never thought I would actually own one. It's the only piece of camera equipment I've ever purchased used. I paid nothing even remotely close to what this lens retails for new (or even what it retails for used most of the time). I was in the right place at the right time to score this sucker. It is really big, though not as big as it originally seemed to me. I guess I'm getting used to it. It is also the single sharpest lens I have EVER shot wide open. I found that when I trialed this lens from Canon last summer and it's still the same with this copy, on both my bodies. I am really astounded by the quality of the photos this lens produces. I am also astounded that my biceps haven't yet reached Incredible Hulk size from hauling this lens around.
Thanks for reading another installment of What's In My Camera Bag!
