Dave's Photo World


Technical Data:

I use a Canon Elan 7E camera, which I picked for three reasons:

  • It could shoot in everything from full automatic mode, to full manual mode, with various modes mixing and matching.

  • It had what was reputed to have the fastest autofocus lens available at the time.

  • It was one of the lightest cameras of it's kind, but is sturdy enough that the first bump doesn't destroy the camera.  

I have three lenses that I use:

  • A general purpose 28-90mm 4-5.6 lens.

  • A 75-300mm 4-5.6 lens for distance shots.

  • A 100mm 2.8 one-to-one Marco lens mostly for closeups.

I've recently added a Tamron 1.4x tele-converter, which converts my 300mm lens to a 420mm lens, at the cost of some light, and the possibility that the autofocus may not work in some circumstances.  

I tend to use professional slide film, and mostly use Fuji Velvia 50 ASA or Fuji Provia 100 ASA film.  Both films are very fine grain, and hold the images extremely well.  The only drawback is that neither film is high speed, and some action shots in lower light conditions don't work well.  I have dabbled with many of the other slide and print films, but those two remain my favorites.
