People often say that the equipment is less important than the skills of the photographer when it concerns taking good photos. A beginner will not instantly make great photos with an expensive camera and a professional will even get descent photographs out of a crappy camera. We can agree on this. However, if you do have the right skills and experience equipment does become important.
It’s not about the number of megapixels on your camera but about different aspects of your camera like a high light sensitivity (low noise at high ISO), quality of the sensor (sharpness, color, etc.), speed of the autofocus, etc. At least as important as the camera are high quality lenses. As a comparison: you wouldn’t put a perplex screen in front of your brand new flat screen tv either! Therefore we only use professional lenses. For your information you can find a brief overview of our equipment on the right.
We use the following equipment:
Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark II (21,1 MP - full frame)
Accessoires: Flashlights, reflection screens, difussor screen, tripods, aquaria, etc.
For underwaterphotography we use the underwater housing of Ikelite for our Canon 5D Mark II
