Bodies: July 2008 Archives
So you want to shoot like McNally? Well, here's step one: gear up. Renowned Nikon shooter Joe McNally's assistant Brad Moore has compiled a list of the gear the the McNally crew uses.
I did a head count of my gear recently to have a list for the insurance in case something happened and was actually pretty satisfied with what I saw. But my list is about one tenth of this one in length and probably about one third in quality. OK they do list each gel color separately. If I did that I could add a few items to my list. But it's still not quite the same. I know when Brad writes D3 it should say D3's (three at least) and when he writes D700 and SB-900 it also most likely to be more than one of each. Products which aren't even in the shops yet.
What can I say? Galloping NAS once again. More like a NAS stampede...
Now this is no "great, another convert!" sermon, but rather a comment on some of the reflections Scott made before the change - and quite a lot of envy over Scott's shopping list....
He is obviously a serious shooter. His Canon gear has consisted of high-end Canon bodies with a recent acquisition of the flagship EOS1DS Mk. III (Yup, Canon likes long names).
His lenses have been what Canonians refer to as "L-glass". In the Nikon world that would be similar to the lenses with gold rings - even though that will not quite cover it. The 85mm f1.8 has no gold ring... but I digress.Continue reading From Canon to Nikon.
