New Pro Canon body tested by Steve McCurry???
« on: November 30, 2012, 03:33:01 PM »
A part from an extremely enviable fotoshoot in an exotic location surrounded by beautiful girls it seems good old Steve could also be testing out a new pro-body prototype from Canon. I know it seems weird given his decade long affiliation with Nikon, but check out this video at exactly 18:37. Appearing is a 1DX type body with a very unusual grip (a 1DX without the outer rubber part perhaps) and – revealingly - missing the Canon logo :o

I think I could make a 1-series body look just lke that for $11.09.

Revealing, indeed.   ;)

But...thanks for trying! 

EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Darn,  it is just some lame body suit! ;D

Never imagined McCurry would be in the market for such a contraption.... Anyway, thank for catching it Neuroanotomist ;)

Yep, first thing i thought was some type of armor for the body, not a new camera. He used a few different bodies and brands for the shoot.

Weird, I thought Steve always shot with Nikon. Sign of the times?

Body aside, is that the 24-70 f/2.8 L mk1?
If he's going to be testing a new body (we don't know if it's old or new, 1DX or 1Ds, because it's covered in armour), why be using an old lens?
Too much gear, too little space.

Yep it's body armour...
But do watch the video...not just for the story and imagery, watch the flow and pace and communication between McCurry and the models, it's pure magic.

Great video! Does anyone know what those small hand-held light panels are?

Great video! Does anyone know what those small hand-held light panels are?

LED lights, most often used for video, but can be very handy for that tiny bit of fill. As we have awesome iso performance now, this type of lighting is rapidly coming into its own for certain projects.

Thanks!  I see that B&H has the little hand-held ones.
