Question by Stephanie: What’s a good camera/lens best fitting to wildlife photography?
Answer by fhotoace
It depends upon how large your budget is.
While using a full frame camera is the optimal way to go, you do not get the benefit you would if you used a camera with a APS-C sensor (1.5x Focal length multiplier) makes any long lens you have, that much longer.
The few wildlife and nature photographers I know, carry both cameras. One full frame dSLR and one APS-C sensored camera. That way the have the best of both worlds, but of course you have picked one of the most costly fields of photography to enter. It is not at all unusual for a wildlife photographer to have $ 25,000 in cameras, lenses and tripods.
In the latest issue of “Outdoor Photography”, June 2010, George Lepp discusses just that question.
Most of the photos published in “Outdoor Photography” lists not only the cameras and lenses used, but even the ISO and exposures used by the photographers
This month, Nikon, Pentax and Canon cameras produced the amazing images … some were shot using film.
