So to celebrate the purchase I set about shooting a small project, all about Dartmoor in the springtime. The timing couldn't of been more perfect as we had a truly spectacular springtime in 2023.
The door was opening to a completely new visual format and a new way of looking at the world. No camera cages / cabling and external video screens. I just packed my usual photography bag, including a few little extras like LED panels and mini tripods.
The Dartmoor Camera Bag
I used my existing lenses - EF 24-70 f4LIS, EF 100-400 f4L IS and the 1.4xIII for a lot of the long distance shots, but it was the new RF100mm Macro that really made it diverse. The lens was superb for longer distance isolation as well as the incredible 1.4x life-size detail work. It changed the dynamic of the video completely.
