    You should look at his site. He also uses a Nikon lens adapted for the Canon camera body he frequently uses. Not to be presumptuous, but I don’t think he cares much about brands, only results. And indeed, he gets wonderful results.

    I tried linking to his website but youtube wouldn’t let me.

    A light-weight but durable tripod is a difficult mix to get right, especially when you are using a dSLR with a moderate sized lens attached.

    Do you have any more details on the tripod that you are using in this video?

    Love the heron pictures! Fantastic advice on the video, thank you.

    Hi, good question. Actually, I do use a number of Canon L lenses, but I also use third party lenses. Although many Canon L lenses are indeed world-class, some don’t really live up to the reputation. Over the years I have used lenses by Nikon, Tamron, Sigma, and Contax/Zeiss on my Canon DSLRs. I use the lenses that have the quality I need for the kind of work I do – if they happen to be something other than Canon L lenses, so be it!

    Despite what I wrote earlier, the video itself is well shot/edited. Liked the advices Ian gave.

  11. ThePanacon says:

    I have a question. If Mr. Ian Plant is a professional photographer with a Canon DSLR on a professional level, why doesn’t he use the Canon L-Series lenses instead of third-party lenses such as Tamron’s? I never met a pro photographer with Canon DSLRs using anything else but Canon lenses. I think Tamron or Sigma lenses are being bought by amateurs who cannot or will not spend huge money on OEM products such as L-lenses by Canon.
