Camera & Photo Info

I've been asked what camera equipment I use to take the photos on this blog, so here's a quick answer. If you'd like more info feel free to ask. [updated: July 16, 2014]

  • Wildlife photos are taken with a Canon EOS-7D.
  • Most of the wildlife and many of the flowers are captured using an EF 300mm f/4 L IS USM lens with a Canon 1.4x TC attached to the 7D. 
  • Most macro photos are taken with the EF 100mm f/2.8 L IS USM lens.
  • Most landscape photos are taken using the Canon EOS-100D, a.k.a., Rebel SL1. It is a tiny, super-light DSLR with the same size sensor as the 7D and can use all the same lenses. So light and easy to carry!
  • Landscape photos are typically taken using the EF-S 18 - 55mm IS STM or ultra-wide EF-S 10 - 18mm IS STM on the little SL1.
  • I use the EF-S 15 - 85mm IS USM "wide-zoom" lens occasionally for landscapes or for star photos.
  • I recently I bought a used EF 70 - 200mm L IS USM to fill the gap between wide zooms and the telephoto. Used for both landscape, wildlife and flowers.
  • I shoot RAW and process using ACR and Photoshop.
  • I will occasionally use my iPhone 6s Plus for panoramas, if for some reason I don't have one of my DSLRs with me, or if I want to be less obtrusive.
Thanks for your interest. I'm not in the business of selling photographic prints, but have been known to do so from time to time. If there is a particular photo on the blog of which you might like a print, please email me via my website link above and we can probably work something out.

All the photos are originally in a format and size to accommodate good sized prints, though a few photos on the blog have been cropped down to where that particular view might not be available in a large size.

I shouldn't have to repeat this, but all photos are copyrighted and cannot be used, copied or reproduced for any purpose without prior express written permission from myself.
