| p.1 #1 · Does a "professional" light weight camera system exist? |
I apologize if this is not the right forum for this question, but I wanted "professional" responses. I am a serious non professional (working on my chops so to speak). I use a Canon 7D, with a Tokina 11-16 f2.8 Wide Angle, a Canon 24-70 f2.8, Canon 70-200 f2.8 and a Canon 100-400 f4.5-5.6 lenses,1.4X and a 2.0X extenders, a Jobu BWG Pro gimbal and Heavy duty tripod. I am currently in the market for a 500mm prime lens.
Here is my concern... I just returned from a photo trip to Venezuela, and while traipsing through the jungle climbing boulders etc. it became painfully obvious to me that the weight of all this equipment, and the complications of switching lenses back and forth as I attempted to photograph jungle, mountains, waterfalls, flora and fauna, made the whole experience a whole lot less fun (although I did get some wonderful shots).
I am wondering if I just have to suck it up and quit complaining (although the idea of carrying a 500 along with everything else is daunting to say the least) or is there a camera system out there that is light weight, but has the professional features and results that I can get with my current equipment? Any thoughts and suggestions for research would be welcomed and appreciated.
