    What photo eqp. are you using?

    First, hello from Rio de Janeiro to you all! I'm new to WUS and would very much appreciate to know how you guys manage to take such beautiful pics. What equipment are you using (cameras, filters, special backgrounds, lenses, ilumination tents...)? Thanks for sharing!

    Re: What photo eqp. are you using?

    I'm using an old Sony Alpha NEX-F3 (12mp) with manual lens adapters off Amazon and old Minolta, Konica, etc. Manual Lenses off Ebay.

    A solid tripod with a lot of movable axis, is important as well.

    Natural Light is your friend.... if you don't have enough light, use a long exposure (This is where the tripod becomes INVALUABLE).

    Here's a hand-held shot I took with a manual focus lens.

    The camera is the least important part of the equation.

    1st. Lighting.
    2nd. Lenses.
    3rd. Stable-Platform
    4th. Camera.

    In that order, in my opinion.

    It's not the bow and arrow, it's the Indian! And the Indian seems to be missing from your list ;).

    Anyway, there are numerous things more important than the camera. Light, quality even more than quantity (you can always add more), a good idea of what you actually want to show, lots of things.

    Re: What photo eqp. are you using?

    I'm using a Canon EOS 5D Mark III, either for work purposes (product photography, editorials, ambient pics at our start up) or privately (vacation, food pics). I have a lense that came with it (24-70mm) and an old one (50mm 1.8f) that was pretty cheap. I also have a spare Canon EOS 600D which was my first before I got the Mark III. If I need flashlights (product photography or certain editorials) I use Walimex (some model with 600 watts). Other than that I rent lenses if I need it for specific photography (wide angle for interior, ultra wide angle for smaller rooms or astrophotog, macro for jewelry shots)

    I only shoot film and I've old SLRs from the 70s and 80s mostly, but also a 1939 Leica IIIb.

    At the moment I am overusing a beatiful Pentax LX with a small kit of K lenses, including a K50 mm f1.2.
