Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM Lens

This lens is my favorite on canons line of L series lens. It is the perfect lens for beach portrait sessions when you have to chase kids around on a beach for a photo shoot. It’s sealed and gasketed against dust and moisture, a must have on a sand beach. It also has a new processing unit that makes the AF faster than ever.

Canon EOS 5D Mark II

It is finally here!!! The EOS 5D Mark II has a stunning 21.1-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor with DIGIC 4 Image Processor. LOL its a Mark III 1Ds with a slower cycle rate. The ISO Range of 100-6400 (expandable to ISO L: 50, H1: 12800 and H2: 25600), plus EOS technologies like Auto Lighting Optimizer and Peripheral Illumination Correction. Full-frame shooters rejoice!


Recent Photo Shoots & Events

Memorial Day Crab Island Destin FL. pictures 2008 Taken with my Canon 24-70mm 2.4/L Lens and Canon 5D zoomed in 100%. Its hard to beat a full frame digital SLR sensor and a good lens for image quality.

Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM

This is my second lens of choice. This lens incorporates Canon’s second generation Image Stabilization technology. The telephoto zoom responds in half a second, while providing up to three stops of correction for camera shake. The range and performance of this lens make it a must have in my book.

Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens

The Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens is one of my favorites. It is perfect for beach portraits and wedding photography. This L series lens should be one of the first in any photographers bag.

My Lenses

Canon Telephoto zoom lenses allow you to capture details that only L series lens can. You can capture the far off action of fast-paced sports or zoom in for an intimate portrait with a blurred background. They are expensive but worth every penny.

Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III Digital SLR

Well I am not going to talk about bargain shopping any more. What can be said? This is the most advanced and powerful digital photography system in the world. The Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III has an entirely new 21.1-megapixel full-frame Canon CMOS sensor and it delivers astounding image quality. It has  Dual “DIGIC III” Image Processors that work in tandem to speed up data handling and camera operation, while further refining imaging performance.  It’s tough, buff, and it’s the STUFF!!!

My Cameras

I use Canon equipment because of its amazing image quality and outstanding performance. Canon EOS digital camera lenses also interchange and most of the other necessities like batteries as well. Canon’s engineers have always been spot on in development of new products to meet industry needs and my hat is off to them for it.

Canon EOS 5D

I love my 5D. If you compare it to the 1Ds Mk II. The 1Ds Mk II has 16.7MP and the 5D 12.8MP. I think that in reality these two cameras are pretty close in terms of absolute resolution. Add the noise performance of the 5D and you have a $3300 camera challenging a camera that costs more than $7000.
