CANON EOS 1100D Digital slr
This is my "work-horse" camera. Most of my photography in the last 3 years has been performed with this great camera. Many options allow for a variety of skill levels and allows for cross-brand lenses to work with the camera body. I find it has a good balance when holding it in one hand and the LCD display screen provides wonderful clarity. The flash is OK so I only use it occasionally. Original battery life if still very good after several years of heavy use.
Please see my Canon lenses below.
This mirrorless digital camera has a ton of up-to-date functions that include panoramic shots, filter options, and internet upload capabilities.
The large CMOS Sensor replaces any mirrors for a smaller camera body.
It has an "old-style" weight, look, and feel to it's housing and allows for a variety of lens possibilities. However, I only own the 20-50mm lens that came with the camera.
I have this with me for HDR options.....something not available with my Canon EOS 1100D.
Canon EF-S 18-55mm LENS
This came bundled with my Canon EOS 1100D camera and it has served me well. It is also in my camera case and this lens allows me to shift from my preferred telephoto lens option to something good for nearer objects.
Image stabilization technology works very well and the weight of this lens is very manageable when holding the camera with one hand.
Canon EF 75-300 mm Telephoto Zoom LENS
This is my most used lens. As a telephoto lens, it allows me "image access" even when the terrain does not allow for wheelchair access for the shot.
I practice with this lens when bringing the foreground sharply into focus from distances far and near.
This is my favorite lens.
MAC'S iPHONE 5S
This phone/camera is always on my person. The 5s has some wonderful applications to go with a pretty good smart phone camera.
The color of the shots as well as the decent performance in lower light situations is a strong point with this version of the iPhone.
With 8-megapixels, the iPhone 5s can give you some great shots while on the go or when you are without your big SLR camera.
You will see a few shots on my website from this smart phone camera.
Kodak Play Touch
This camera was a decent duo pen camera and video device that was a step up from the current flip phone cameras of the day. It's popularity dropped when smart phone camera technology allowed for sharper images and application enhancements. I still carry this around as a backup, should my iPhone run out of space or battery life. Currently, only a few of my shots from this camera are on my website.
VANGUARD UP-Rise 34 Sling Bag
I chose this sling bag style of camera cases for it's light weight and storage options. I can fit my EOS 1100D in the top compartment with a 50mm lens still attached.
I can also fit two decent sized lenses in the main storage section. It has a rain cover tucked away in the back, which has saved me several times.
The sling back harness is ideal for wheelchair users as the bag can easily be placed on your front and the harness over your back.
Zippers on several sides allow for quick access to camera and lenses.
