My photography equipment

Before we begin, I must point out that photographic equipment is only a part of the equation. You would be surprised at the kinds of photographs I can get from 10-year old digital cameras. In order to obtain artistic, high quality photographs, there’s a lot of studying and practice involved. A certain amount of talent or predisposition for this kind of pursuit also helps. I advise you to read through this post of mine and watch the video I created to go along with it, in order to get a healthy perspective on photo gear. With that in mind, here is a list of my current equipment:


  • Olympus PEN E-P2: I love this diminutive camera and the high quality photographs I can obtain with it; it has certain limitations but if I work with them, not against them, this camera is superb.
  • Olympus PEN E-PL1: same as above, but I love the E-P2 a lot more.
  • Canon EOS 5D: my first full frame camera and first 12 megapixel camera; it opened up a new world for me, because it was such a capable camera and it could match my demands. I still use it and love it.
  • Canon EOS 7D: a workhorse that I use for both photograph and filmmaking.
  • Canon EOS 60D: same as the 7D, but it’s not weatherproof and it’s slower; on the plus side, it does have a flip-out screen.
