My Gear
You know one thing I often get asked is – what camera do you have? Now this usually comes in the form a question –
“Chris, AWESOME pictures, you must have a really nice camera!!! What is it?”
Now you have to understand that I am going to go on a tangent real quick, stay with me 🙂
As much as I want to say – “Listen, the camera is not what makes the shot, it is the person behind it….”
But we all know that gear does help and at the end of the day without a camera I could not shoot right? The camera, lens etc are all tools that help us get the shot. And us “gear heads” always want to know what is in someone else’s bag. In fact well known photographers often do videos “Whats in my bag”. I am not a video guy (yet, that could always change) however I did want to put up what I currently use and what I have used in the past. Tangent over, lets get to the goods…

    Canon 5D Mark III – What can I say about this one? This completes me. I have used entry level Rebel line cameras (Canon XTi), higher end Prosumer grade crop sensors (Canon 7D – another wonderful body that completes me), the glorious full frame wonder Canon 5D Mark II and now the 5D Mark III.

    I will do a full review later, but for now I am going to say that this camera is a beauty. It feels like a custom fit glove for my hand. Between the feel, features and it’s full frame sensor – WOW! Like I said I will do a full review later
