My Landscape Gear – Camera Body

Published February 14th, 2014

Could you guarantee a good DSLR camera to shoot a good photo?

No we can’t.

It’s a stupid idea but very popular in the Amateur photographers.

But a good camera body can give you a stable working environment and make sure you can shoot what you want to shoot.

I start my landscape photography from a Canon EOS 60D APS-C about half year and I upgrade it to 5d mark ii. After another half year I continue upgrade to 5d mark iii. Now I use the flagship Canon EOS 1dx, it is the best camera body in Canon world.

60D

5d mark ii

5d mark iii

1DX

This is my upgrade line of the camera body in the last 3 years, it is not a usual photographer should be. I am a strange man and please don’t do it like me, waste money.

Let’s do a test, here is a 4 photo use these 4 camera body shooting, could you try to find what camera take the photo.
