Bob from Plymouth's current gear

Canon PowerShot S100
Nikon Coolpix P300
Nikon D600
Bought as a spare for my daughter's underwater Fisheye Fix S100 housing. A powerful tool which takes great photographs.
Too early for a definitive note: but so far I love this camera. It nails every shot.
Nikon D700
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G VR
Built like a tank, superb high ISO performance. When 12Mp is enough the D700 is unbeatable.
A great lens which I use the most. Certainly one of the best ever made.
A budget lens I bought to use at top speed events. Extremes of definition are little use when photographing bikes moving at over 200mph. This lens produces acceptable results and has earned its keep.
Other gear:
  • GoPro Hero 2 I use this on my motorcycle for Land Speed Racing events. The ubiquitous GoPro, as used by TV production companies everywhere.
  • Nikon SB-900 Speedlight As much as I'll ever need and works great as fill flash with a stofen omnibounce
  • Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Macro 1:1 Bought in preference to the Micro Nikkor 60mm after advice from DP Review members. We shall see.
