Gear Guide: Photography

Here are some of the products I rely on. Some I use for my professional work and some I use for fun in my spare time.  I have used them separately for my photography and for my video work and have also found that some work quite well for both disciplines.

Cameras

Canon EOS R

Great camera for both stills and video and the latest full frame camera from Canon. I often use it side by side with the Canon EOS C200 Cinema EOS camera. It is a mirrorless camera that means it is lighter and has great features especially with autofocus. This camera also works well in low light which is very handy for events.

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

Another great camera, this is a DSLR and use this when speed is key such as graduation ceremonies or sports, although the EOS R is very good at this too. Again, great in all situations including low light.

GoPro

These are great cameras for action or getting into those tight spaces. Handy for filming in cars and useful for vlogging. I really like the timelapse on both of these cameras.

Lighting

There are many options when it comes to lighting so first consider whether you are on a photographic or video shoot.
