The Gear Behind the Guides
Thanks for stopping by! We've received a lot of questions regarding what cameras we use to take our photos and what software we use to post-process them, so we've created this page as a reference for those of you curious about the tools of our trade.
Here's a short video showcasing our gear -
Capturing the Shot -
Nikon D90Matthew and Kevin both use Nikon D90s. The Nikon D90 is a great camera, though it has been replaced by the Nikon D7000. Most of the photos on this blog came from this faithful workhorse.
Nikon D7000Michaela uses a Nikon D7000 which features some snazzy upgrades from the D90, including higher resolution, full hi-definition video capabilities, faster shutter speeds and an intervalometer, which came in very handy to capture the fireworks portion of our Christmas Tour time lapse.
Canon 20DThat's right... Canon. When we first started out, Matthew and Michaela shared a Canon 20D on loan from Matthew's dad. A few of those shots are hanging around our gallery. Thanks dad!
LensesThe majority of our shots are taken with our kit lenses, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR. We call it the 18-105 for short... We also have a Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G and a Sigma 10-20mm /4-5.6. On occasion we've had the opportunity to borrow lenses from friends. Here is a quick rundown of other lenses we've used:
- Nikkor 12-24mm f/4
- Nikkor 17-35mm f/2.8
- Nikkor 28-70mm f/2.8
- Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8
