p.3 #1 · Super Bowl Sunday: 75% of shooters using Canon gear


I am totally cognizant of that - I used to do it. I guess my point is when something is seemingly unimportant. Like photogs rushing to shoot the two-faced prime minister of New Zealand stand at a microphone. They are all being paid, and therefore all need 'The Shot', and of course their agencies do not want to buy off the wire if they can get their own shots - it is that sense that I think it is lame despite having done it.

How many of these photographers OWN the gear they are using
Did they spend their money, or are they using their employers or CPS gear?
I suspect few are owners.
Given that -- they use what they are given.
Just like the huge pile of gear at the Olympics....loan me a 600/4 at a main event and I'll shot it no matter what color it is....

Yes a lot of amateur drivers do....professionals as in this case drive the Lexus.

Pros are driving trucks and buses. If a pro is driving a Lexus he/she is a chauffeur.

I read a piece a couple years ago about the NFL and photography. Canon is paying the licensing fees for the NFL and has exclusive rights. AFAIK it has not changed. It's the same deal as "The Official Soup of the NFL"

Yeah, you're probably right. I love brand loyalty. Of course when the final product is presented to the client they have no idea what you shot it with....only how good you are as a photographer.

There you done it. Shattered my beliefs that those big boys in the NFL got their muscles from eating Campbells soup.

In the first photo, looks like 75% also wearing the same black beanie--what appears to be CPS logo?


This is the first thing I noticed as well - and my thought was - "Man, photographers as a whole can be a huge pack of NERDS!"

I'm referring to race car drivers, I should have clarified myself. I'm affiliated with the business to a small extent and they usually drive their own cars and don't have chauffeurs

Using the best of both brands should give you indistinguishable results regardless.

I do just fine with nikon gear for wildlife. I doubt switching to canon would give me anything better. Maybe the IIs resolution is a minuscule amount better over the lates VR telephotos. But really for wildlife i love the pixel density of the d7100 and the d800 goes hand and hand with it for low light and dynamic range when fast fps are not needed.

I will take the pixel density trade off vs fps for wildlife. Of coarse if i was shooting sports it would have to be a d4 or the d4s if they make a good improvement

You are of course correct....however my muscles thank me at the end of the day when I carry a 600II vs a 600VR

Newb question,...
What is the difference between the shooters in the guarded bullpen (limited access) and the on-field shooters in the brown / khaki vests (full access)? Is there some sort of a fee charged to the agency for full access to the field? Is there a pecking order for shooting large events like this?

Feel free to post link if there is a thread detailing this on FM,...if so, my apologies. Thank you.

I think the bottom line is both systems are capable of producing the goods.

Who cares? I don't see a single photographer in that box shooting my current favorite system. Yet I'm still not ashamed to be shooting it.
