Shooting in Namibia with the Canon EOS 6D

Shooting in Namibia with the Canon EOS 6D

I am currently on a landscape photography workshop lead by Andy Biggs and Joshua Holko and alongside a lot of very cool people from around the globe. The landscape is absolutely stunning to say the least.

When I came to Namibia, I decided I wouldn’t carry a ton of gear, so I went for a pair of Canon EOS 6D camera bodies, the EF 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS, EF 24-70 f/4L IS and the Zeiss 15 f/2.8 Distagon. So far I’m extremely happy with my selection of gear.

Internet access hasn’t been the quickest, that’s why I haven’t been updating the site as much as usual. I still have a 5 more days on this safari and then I’ll begin the long trek home.

There are a few images from the trip after the break.

Camera Canada is selling super telephoto lenses at a big discount over their US counterparts and ship to the USA. These items 100% qualify for USA warranty. I buy most of my gear in Canada from these guys. They’re great to deal with. The current currency difference between Canada and the USA should help offset the price of shipping. Camera Canada ships Canada Post/USPS to the USA and so far that has avoided any customs or duties for US customers.
