What real Pros shoot...
« on: December 04, 2012, 02:26:37 AM »
I just found this graphs of what gear pros are shooting. By pros I means the ones who contributed their picture to the list of the best Reuters photos of the last year.
Also interesting to see what settings they are using.

Nice one, but I bet the photographer wished he had a D800 for that shot. More DR would have helped!

 ;) ;) ;) ;D

(Obvious flame bait, but it is still true.)

Or he may not have been able to take that picture with a D800, because all his memory cards were full at this point....

Im not sure you're baiting, it lookes more like trolling. If not, then please provide a serious explanation to your statement. The moment is everything. To capture the moment, a camera with fast AF is essential,  having a 5D3 myself,  I have to say it's quite adequate when it comes to that.

Also, looking at the charts. 82.9% if I recall it correct couldn't have been taken with a D800 to match a 5D3 on ISO. So again, please proove your point.

I would have brought a D800 and left my 5D at home in case I dropped it in a pool or something... maybe thats what he meant

I was going to scream if this was another film love thread... But, I was overjoiced to see that Canon was nearly all the cameras!!! By the way, who makes a 16mm prime? Also, More DR would have helped like none of these pictures...
What is truth?

By pros you mean pro photo-journalists.

I'm surprised how popular the 16-35 is with them compared to the 24-70.

Interesting look at the current state of photojournalism.

Despite the common dictum "f/8 and there," most of these images are on the extremes -- slow shutter speeds, wide apertures, high ISO (although not as high as I would have expected from the 5D2 bodies).

Thanks for the link.
