Most of the photos on this site have been taken with Canon EOS Digital SLR and Compact System Cameras and lenses. Prior to digital I used Canon film SLR's such as
the AE1-P and T90.
Although I often use long lenses for wildlife, many times I also use a hide to help me get extra close to the subject.
This also helps in getting more natural shots as the subject is unaware of my presence and is therefore more relaxed. When taking shots with
a Canon 500mm f4 lens I often use a Manfrotto 393 Long Lens Support (aka Bogen 3421) gimbal tripod head.
This enables complete freedom of movement for the camera and lens, keeping the centre of gravity over the tripod at all times so there is no
chance of the weight of the lens causing the tripod to fall over.
Nowadays, I use a Wimberley type gimbal head. The reasons I changed were that due to the shape of the Manfrotto 393 it is awkward to carry about and is also about 0.4 kg (1 lb) heavier than the Wimberley type that I have.
