p.2 #1 · p.2 #1 · Canon 7D / Landscapes question ?


It sounds like (as others have said) that the other photog is a tool. I have a friend here in NZ who "only" has a 7D. He recently won the 2011 NZ Geographic Landscape Photographer of the year with his lousy 7D

Edit: The winning image was also printed and put on display at the Gala Dinner - the print was 1.2m wide I think

Possible responses:

Oh, I'm just playing around while waiting to shoot a football game for Sports Illustrated.

An artist is known for his art, not for his tools.

Bragging about your big camera to compensate for your small size in other areas?

I left my Hasselblad H4D-200MS at home today.

I'll show you mine if you show me yours.

No speaka English.

Hah this again. OK I will admit a 5D2 may be a better landscape camera but the 7D is no slouch.

Funny, Landscape is not only wide, and as stated earlier I have mine with a 100 - 400 mounted to it all the time, with the occ. 100 macro. The crop senor is a big advantage when I want to shoot close or tight comps. The FF sensor is nicer for ease of wide shots, but push come to shove a crop camera can shoot a pano. series and get almost anything a wide lens can with much more resolution. As stated, full sensors are nice, but a lot of talented people shoot the heck out o a crop sensor. Here are a few meager offerings from my T2i ( same sensor as the 7D ). Rick

You don't need a full-frame body, nor do you need wide-angle lenses for landscapes. Some people just think you do.

Since you can also shoot a multiframe panorama with a full-frame camera, that particular argument doesn't hold water.

This I agree with.

I wish I would run into someone who would tell me that my gear is no good or obsolete I have run into some tools out in the wild, but no one who is that ignorant as to what the OP described as approached me, lol.

I have the latest camera body (if it was 2002) and lens (if it was 1984)...
