Camera bag

I used to shoot NIkon and then I turned to the dark side well light side if you look at the L lenses but hey I jumped ship to Canon, good move or bad hmmm not too sure really they are both great systems and but a turn of market economics was to blame a nice shiny 20D came up to replace my old D70 and I just couldn’t refuse.  Took a while to get use to the change of ergonomics and I’m still nto sure I dont prefer Nikons layout; never really got to grips with the big wheel in the center rather than a small where where the thumb sits, also I think Canon missed a trick for a long while not putting the remote wireless flash control into their cameras but having got a 7D not to long ago I have to say that wireless E-TTL is the dogs bollocks (as in good, as opposed to just plain bollocks which is bad).

Am I glad I’m a Canon shooter ….. yeah however I think the second hand bits on eBay are more expensive than Nikon but in consolation there are a lot more to choose from.

Anyways here it is the camera gear I have  in my bag and almost never leave home without:


  • Canon 7D
  • Canon 40D


  • Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 DG
  • Canon 70-200mm f/4 IS L
