Animal Kingdom / camera trap for wildlife photography
« on: October 09, 2013, 11:39:15 AM »
I don't know if some of you are interested in the camera trap technique for wildlife photography like Steve Winter does for Panthera or the National Geaographic, but i would like to share a link for an ebook written by a friend of mine about this particular technique which gives awesome results.

See what my friend can do with ol' rebel bodies and 10-20 lenses (here in the rainforests of Costa Rica) :

here's the direct link for the ebook :

Of course i don't earn any dollar on it, i just wanna share...

Does anyone use that zoom lens ? I mostly use my two dslr bodies (40D and recently acquired 70d) for wildlife photography but i need an all around zoom mostly for portraits, landscapes and travels.

I know the 24-105 f/4 L IS is certainly my best option, but considering the low price of that Sigma lens, i'm curious to read opinions from photographers who utilize or can compare it to the 24-105 f/4 L IS or even the ol' 24-70 f/2.8 L (if it can be compared to these kind of lenses)...

I f you're fans of other third party zoom lenses that can interest me, don't hesitate !

Thanks.

Lenses / 17-40mm F/4 L or 16/35mm F/2.8 L I
« on: November 22, 2012, 10:31:08 AM »
I'm thinking about buying a used WA lens. In your opinion, for almost the same price would you take the 17-40 F/4 L or the 16-35 F/2.8 L I. The 5D mark III would be the body to go with...

EOS Bodies - For Stills / 5D mark III or 7D and 5D mark II
« on: November 20, 2012, 07:55:03 AM »
I'm looking to upgrade my photo gear for wildlife photography. Would you buy a 5D mark III to complete my 40D or for the almost same price buy a 7D and 5D mark II (and sell my 40D) ?

Low light situations in european and tropical forests are the places where i'll take my pictures...

Lenses / Canon 5D mark III + 300 2.8 L IS I
« on: November 12, 2012, 05:04:41 AM »
Hi guys,

what do you think about putting a 300 2.8 L IS I on a 5D mark III for wildlife photography in the tough conditions of the tropical forests ?

Have you tested this combination ? with which results ? Do you think i still can have good results with the TC 1.4 III with this combination ?

thanks, Vincent

With the Super bowl coming tonight, one the biggest sport event in the world, do you think these bodies will be tested by accredited photgraphers or canon team crew ?

Lenses / lenses for neotropical rainforest
« on: January 04, 2012, 10:48:51 AM »
What do you think if i buy this two lenses for my future trips in neotropical rainforest.

Canon lenses 300mm F/4 L IS  for mammals, birds and some of snake species and the 100 F/2.8 L IS for snakes and frogs, one on a 40D body and the other one on a 7D Body...

I hope for a new version of the 300mm F/4 L IS this year but it seems unlikely.

Thanks, Vincent
