@CANON_PHOTOS MUST HAVES**

Canon_photos are back with a blog about gear must haves. Recently we have decided to let our fans know what gear we use and what we can recommend to all of you. The blog will outline, what we think are must haves when starting out in the business. 

 

CAMERAS

Canon EOS 750D/ Rebel T6i

The canon 750D marks one of Canons entry-level DSLRs, which we can recommend when you are planning to get your first ever DSLR Camera. Few of our team members started out with this camera! The camera has a 24,2 Megapixel APS-c sensor and has the ability to capture stunning photos and Full HD video footage. The camera is usually sold with the 18-55mm kit lens, which is the perfect way to enter the world of photography.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III

The canon 5D mark III is the perfect accessory for any high level amateur or professional photographer. The camera has recently been succeeded by the newer Canon 5D Marl IV, but still holds up as the most sold professional camera made by Canon in recent years. The camera is used by team member Ian Harper (@Ianharper). Just click for his instagram if you are interested in some impressions. The camera offers a 22 Megapixel full frame - CMOS sensor, which handles low light really well. You also have the ability to record Full-HD video.

CAMERA GEAR 

Canon 16-35mm f/2.8// Canon 16-35mm f/4

One of the most versatile lenses Canon has to offer. Perfect for landscapes and architecture with superb sharpness and extremely good low light capabilities. This lens should be in every photographers bag. If the lens is too pricey for you, check out the f/4 version of this lens, which is not quite as good in low light, but still everything you'll ever need when you shoot mostly on tripod.

Canon 50mm f/1.8 STM// Canon 50mm f/1.4

One of Canons more budget lenses, which is a killer for portraiture due to its big aperture. Some professional portrait photographers we know mostly shoot with just this lenses, as it offers unbelievable value and quality for the price. There is also a slightly more expensive f/1.4 lens (around 100 bucks more), which is able to produce an even bigger depth of field, which can be really nice when mainly shooting portraiture.

Canon 24-70mm f/2.8//Canon 24-70mm f/4

For us, this lens is an always "on the camera" lens, meaning we usually don't even take this one off the camera. It is extremely versatile for all kinds of photography subjects. We have shot portraiture, architecture and landscapes with it and it never let us down. For this lens, there is also a cheaper f/4 version, which team member Steffen Eisenacher (@se_images) uses for most of his shots.

DRONES

Drones have become a huge part on the photography market in the recent years. These are the drones we have personally tested and can recommend. 

DJI Phantom 4

DJI Phantom 4, successor of the DJI Phantom 3, is a drone trusted by many arial photographers. Especially with the recent drones released by DJI, this drone has seen a price drop to make it affordable to most people. We have tested this drone and can highly recommend it.

DJI Mavic Pro

The DJI Mavic marks on of the newer released drones by DJI. It features amazing 4k video, 12 Megapixel RAW photos and up to 30 minutes of flight. This drone is the one we recommend the most, if your budget is not an issue, as it offers most value for the price. If you are happy to cut down slightly on flight-time and Image quality the DJI Phantom 4 Pro is the one for you!
