What Gear Do I Use?
So I wanted to talk to you guys about one of the questions I get asked most frequently, what gear do I use? Let's find out!
To begin, here's what I currently use.
• Canon 750D (Updated: Canon 5D Mark III)
• Canon 24 - 70 f2.8 Mark ii L series Lens
• Mephoto Aluminium Roadtrip Tripod
• DJI Phantom 3 Advanced
• iPhone 7
• Macbook Pro 13" Retina Display 2010
•Adobe Lightroom/Photoshop CC 2017
To this day I've been using the very same camera body I first bought for myself, a Canon 750D. Many people always appear shocked when I tell them this seeing as it's an entry level DSLR at a relatively cheap price. However I strongly believe that it's how you use your kit that matters & until your gear really starts to limit you as a creative that's when you know it's time to upgrade. Although I absolutely love my 750D it just isn't cutting it for me as much anymore, especially when you want to produce the highest quality of work, especially for clients/brands.
Although it's served me remarkably well for a camera of its caliber I'm eagerly awaiting the time I can upgrade to either a Canon 5D Mark III/IV or Sony A7Rii (I'm still incredibly undecided on which!). However for someone starting out in the world of photography the 750D can be a true workhorse and is extremely simple to master given the right amount of effort.
My real love obsession has to be with my Canon 24-70 glass. That lens is an absolute 100% beast. Any photographer who's used the lens I'm positive would tell you the same! Firstly it's like having a bag full of high end prime lens' at your disposal. Secondly it is dangerously sharp, it's allowed me to produce images on the 750D that prompt others to ask how I take such sharp images. The secret... the Canon's marvellous engineering. Although a very pricey lens, I cannot recommend it highly enough! The only other lens I'm lusting after at the moment is possibly a 70-200 tele, but we'll see.
