Super Woman

category Photographers • 1 min read

This woman photographer is amazing! She must be from the planet Krypton.

She’s an older person (I would guess in her late 50s, early 60s) and she carries a 1DMk4 with a 600mm f/4. She makes her photos HAND-HELD. That’s 24Lbs/11Kg at the end of her extended arm.

That day, the light was not the greatest, it was grey, low contrast and very cloudy. Either …

Intrepid Photographer

category Photographers • hashtags Canon, 7D • 1 min read

The guy is a professional. He rented a Canon 500 f/4L lens for the weekend. The lens was introduced in 1999 (not only it was the previous century, it was the previous millennium).

There’s an IS (Image Stabilization) built in the lens. It’s OK for ‘kind of stabilizing’ the lens but… It’s not that good. The lens is just above 4kg/just above 9lbs, plus the …

Puzzled by Old Camera: Vancouver, BC

category Photographers • 1 min read

This guy is using a very old Fuji FinePix S3 camera and he seems puzzled. He looked through the viewfinder, he looked around, look at the camera, at the viewfinder.

He seemed puzzled… He went back and forth at least a dozen times.

BTW, the Fuji FinePix S3 Pro was a Nikon re-badge by Fuji. It was announced in February 2004 and it was shipped in 2005. In the tech …

iPad Photographer: Vancouver, BC

category Photographers • hashtags Canon, 7D • 1 min read

It’s called the Sun Run. The Vancouver Sun newspaper organises a 10k run every end of spring. People come by the 10 of thousands and some people like this guy and me also come not for the run or the walk portion but for the photo opportunities.

He’s using his IPad and he seems to be happy with what he sees on his screen.

He said that he was going to do some ‘headshots’.

BTW, his tripod is orange. That’s what attracted my attention.

Mine’s bigger than yours

category Photographers • hashtags Canon, 7D • 1 min read

The winner of the tele photo wars is the guy in the middle. The guy between the Canon 500 at the front and the Minolta 600 at the back, with the small narrow white tube. It’s a 1200mm digiscope. He has it mounted on an Olympus m4/3!

The 1200mm digiscope on a micro-4/3rd camera gives him a whopping 2400mm lens. So he works at f/11 with …

Hunting Snowy Owls

category Photographers • hashtags Canon, 7D • 1 min read

The previous summer was extremely rich in mice, rodents…. in the arctic. The Snowy Owls had many off-springs. They (mostly the young) couldn’t deal with the 40 and 50 below 0 (both in Fahrenheit and in Celsius), so they moved south to the Lower Mainland, BC. 24 of them!

They had the Snowy Owls on the news on TV and the photographers started to hunt them. Hundreds of photographers …

Point and Shoot

The guy (the photographer) staid in this position for a good 10 minutes. He was yelling (actually a very loud voice) to the lady to hold it up, put it down, turn…

It looks like the lady is holding some kind of rubber chicken in her hand.
