Camera gear and other stuff...

Here is a list of what I use currently. I'm only an amateur, so I don't have lighting rigs or other specialist equipment.

Oh, and a few photos on the site are taken with my iPhone!


Canon EOS 80D

Fantastic new camera body, brought out in March 2016. Until then I was using a Canon 40D.


Canon EF 17-40mm f/4 L USM

Wide angle zoom lens for landscapes and other uses.

Canon EF 24-70mm f/4 L IS USM

My latest buy (2017) - a great quality "walkabout" lens.

Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM

A fantastic zoom lens, very sharp and packed with great features. First used for our Canada and California trip in 2016. 

Canon 1.4x Extender

Used to convert the 70-200 into an even longer zoom: 98-280mm. Some loss of sharpness.

Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM

A great lens and a step up from the "nifty fifty" f/1.8.


Canon Speedlite 430EX II

A good flash gun is well worth it for indoor shots. Bounce the flash off the ceiling at parties!


I use Hoya filters.
