About me:

Various film bodies beginning in the 60's, including medium format, later a Minolta SRT 201; some misc. digital P&S cameras and eventually moved to Canon 10D; now shoot with a 30D & 1DMkIII, I replaced a S45 with a S100 for travel & casual shooting.

I use an iPhone 7 for more casual stuff lately, I'll probably add a mirrorless body to replace the 30D for shots beyond what the iPhone & S100 can do. Although I really like a "fit in the pocket" camera like the S100.

Lenses are a key part of photography gear, what I currently shoot with:

EF 20mm f/2.8
EF 24mm f/1.4L
EF 17-40mm f/4.0L
EF 50mm f/1.4
EF 24-70mm f/2.8L
EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS
EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS
EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS
EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II
EF 300mm f/4.0L IS
EF 300mm f/2.8L IS
EF 800mm f/5.6L IS

Tripods, monopods, heads, a 4th Dimension Mongoose M3.6 gimbal, flashes, flash extender, plus the routine assortment of parts & pieces. I'm still looking for skill....

In spite of my limitations, many of my photos have been published. Even a blind squirrel gets lucky sometimes and finds a nut...
