My Camera Gear
I purchased my first digital camera, the Sony DSC-F717, in 2003. While it was a great camera, it unfortunately broke after just a couple years of use. When that happened, I decided to enter into the world of Digital SLR photography. I currently own the following cameras:
- Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT (350D)
- Canon EOS 60D
I normally use the XT for experimental shots, such as timelapse photography and long-exposure star trails. The 60D is my daytime general-purpose photography camera, as well as the camera I use for deep-sky astrophotography with my telescope equipment.
Thanks to my good friend Joe, I have access to a very nice array of lenses. They are:
- Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6
- Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM (Borrowed)
- Canon EF 50mm f/1.8
- Canon EF-S 60mm Macro f/2.8 USM
- Canon EF 70-300mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
- Canon EF 100mm f/2.0 USM (Borrowed)
- Canon EF 300mm f/4.0L IS USM (Borrowed)
While the lenses are usually used for daytime photography, I often mount my 60D on top of my telescope in a piggyback configuration, photographing the night sky with various high-quality Canon lenses.
