Re: Great White Shark Photography

Your legs will absorb more shock then a tripod on a boat, but your arms may want a tripod. My understanding is that these trips last for hours. If you got 10 breaches that would be a lot, so that's a long time looking and holding a camera with a big lens for just a few seconds. You probably won't shoot much at 2.8 given the dof and size of the shark. So you might want consider other lenses like the 200 f4. Or a 135mm etc. I would want the IQ of a prime once you figure out the sizes involved. I agree practice will be key. Another idea is to bring a laptop and wireless tether. You will want to see these shots right away incase something goes wrong, you can correct it before the next shark.
