The Gear I use.

I have always used Canon cameras. My first SLR was a Canon F1, a sturdy old thing that I still use to this day. I also have an old 1D that I purchased back in 2002, 4.48 megapixel CCD sensor, still takes a nice photograph. Learning how to use it back then was another thing, even the tech folks out at Canon had no idea, even downloading and converting the files was a task in itself. You can find some more information on it here http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/CanonEOS1D/. I have also used in the past a 1Ds, 1Ds MK II and 5D's. They all function in a similar way and I guess that is why I stick to them. Especially when I'm in the air I like all the adjustments to come naturally without having to look at what I'm pressing or moving. Currently I shoot everything on a Canon 5D MK II, I have two of them. Even though they are not a 1 series camera they still handle the grind of aerial photography. I shoot everything on the RAW setting and with the help of a fast CF card the information gets processed with no hassles at all. http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canoneos5dmarkii/
