Expert photographer Jeff Cable has exposed the camera package he’s taken to Tokyo to protect the 2020 Olympic Video games (of course, that is still the identify!).
As a seven-time veteran of the Olympics, masking the Games for Group Usa and the US Olympic Committee, Cable is superior experienced than pretty much any individual when it comes to evaluating the best specialist cameras, so to get a glimpse into his camera bag provides a serious insight into what a working professional at the optimum degree depends on to get the occupation done.
Thanks to Jeff’s outstanding blog site, that is precisely what we’ve been privileged more than enough to see. And what is most interesting about this insight is that this is the initially time that he is relying nearly solely on mirrorless package, with a DSLR made use of exclusively as a backup overall body.
“This is the to start with Olympics where I will be relying nearly exclusively on Canon’s mirrorless cameras, which meant a absolutely various lens assortment than in the previous.”
So accurately what is actually in his bag? Let us take a look…
Cable is shooting with the model new Canon EOS R3 (pre-production), Canon EOS R5 (x2) and Canon EOS-1D X Mark III bodies. As noted, even so, the latter – despite being Canon’s flagship sports digicam – is serving strictly as a bench warmer.
“I am bringing my Canon 1DX Mark III and the Canon 100-400mm lens as my ‘backup’ digicam setup,” Cable wrote. “I am not positive how significantly I will use that, but since I am so common with that set up, I thought it finest to have with me for comfort. I do have a pair of the Canon EF to RF adaptors so that I can mount the 200-400 and 100-400 on the mirrorless bodies,” together with the Canon EF 8-15mm fisheye.
In conditions of mirrorless glass, curiously he has only packed two of the a few ‘trinity’ lenses – and has opted for superzoom and the RF kit lens in its place of the Canon RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM that a lot of would have predicted.
“I am also getting the new Canon RF 70-200mm 2.8 and Canon RF 100-500mm lenses which should occur in handy for many of the other sporting activities. I resolved to bring the new Canon RF 15-35mm lens for my broad shots and the Canon RF 24-105mm lens for nearly anything in involving.
