I'm a Canon Shooter -

1Dx , 5Dmkiii , 7Dmkii , 7D , (4) G16 , (3) G12 , (1) G10. I recently toyed with the medium digital format and purchased a Pentax 645Z. My lenses cover anything from 11mm to the 800mm. Photography is more of a hobby these days. I was fortunate to retire at 52. I recently got to use the new Canon 5Ds r and look forward to having one in my Arsenal. When is comes to tripods,monopods, L brackets and gimbal mounts I use Really Right Stuff.

My old, but still not bad, tripod let my 1DX and 24-105 hit the ground one day. Within a week I got a Manfrotto tripod and the old tripod is relegated to off camera flash holding.

I told the wife I can't let that kind of money sit on a cheap tripod.

I agree, one spends 1000's of dollars and then buys a $39 dollar tripod.

What camera(s) do you use ?
What lenses, filters, etc.
Got any good do's or do not's (I've got plenty of the latter to share) to pass along ?

To get things started, for the last 10 years or so I've been using a Nikon D50 SLR. It's an entry level camera but it's far more capable than the guy standing behind it.

Lenses consist of the 18-55mm zoom lens that comes with the kit. I've heard "serious" photographers talk down about that lens but it's taken some awfully nice pictures for me over the years.
A 70-300 zoom lens does critter duty so that the next time I'm dangerously, stupidly close to a bear the photo doesn't eventually look like a fuzzy black dot 400 yards away. Better yet, I won't have to get dangerously, stupidly close to a bear to get a good shot.
And recently, I bought a 50mm prime lens (for non-SLR users, "prime" means it's not a zoom lens) with a wider aperture (f1.8) that I hope to use for night landscape photography.

I'll post up a few examples I've found recently that could have been much better shots had I been watching more closely or used something different.

I'm an SLR shooter, but I hope the point-and-shooters and even video-cammers will chime in.
Hi all,
Took a (bucket list) trip this last spring starting just after Memorial Day weekend and got some nice shots of North Rim Grand Canyon, the slot canyons of Antelope Canyon, Monument Valley and Capitol Reef. Thought I would share these in an album on my home page if anyone is interested in maybe visiting any of these venues.

Don, Keep at it. It's not always about the equipment. I am a Photographer and went pro about 8 years ago. Some of my best shots were made with an entry level Nikon.

I prefer to get my daily exercise in the great outdoors and enjoy walking/hiking the trails in nearby local and state parks. Every once in a while during my hikes I come across a scene that makes me scratch my head and wonder, WTH! Today was one of those days. I’m glad I had my camera with the long zoom lens because these folks were way out in the field. Because of the props in the picture, I believe this was a professional photo shoot. I guess the photographer didn’t have a good woodland backdrop. Since this sight had me wondering whether I was hallucinating or not, I decided to call this the “Sanity Claus Scene.”

I've heard of photographers offering a "Natural Setting" for the annual family Christmas Photo. This is the first time I've seen "mall Santa" in the field though.
Thanks for sharing this and Happy Thanksgiving!
