Lights, CAMERA, Action-ABC Wednesday "C"

All kinds of activities occur in the Paddock at Canterbury Park. As I was waiting to see the horses and jockeys with my single lens Canon CAMERA at the ready, I observed this professional CAMERA MAN snapping the action. What I wouldn't give for the equipment he is using!

ABC Wednesday is a meme initiated by Denise Nesbit. Check out her blog here.

  3. Yes, I see professionals with amazing camera equipment too from time to time and feel somewhat daunted for the same reasons as you!

  4. My photos aren't up to much but at least I can carry my camera in one hand!

  5. He looks worried though! And I wouldn't like to lug that thing about, a small hand camera is just a bit easier then...

  6. They are available. LOL It takes more money than your Canon, I am sure of that. They also do a lot with them. I know you wouldn't want to lug that outfit around with you every day.

    We had a television camera we used to make videos (that's how I got on television -- execs saw the results) and in those days it was huge and weighed a ton and the battery pack as a large box like a tool chest and the recorder was the same size and you had to have a small television set hooked up to it if you wanted to see what was going on film. It was made by RCA and was one of the first mobile recording television cameras.

    This is a nice photograph of something a lot more modern than what we had.

    I am still making history on my Pick a Peck of Pixels blog. Today I posted a Zebra Butterfly with long tails. He is as big as your hand. Most have never seen one. Now you can see one at

  9. Even this professional is drooling at his kit. Very very expenvie and heavy. Your canon captured a beautiful portrait of the man at work, and that's down to the photographer, whatever the kit.

  12. Great camera but you will have to get someone to watch it for you while you go to place a bet.

  13. A cameraman! Excellent choice! And I agree with Sharon - it's just three times the weight (if not more) to carry about with you. How often would you use it, if it weren't your job?

  14. Nice capture, I love the look of concern on his face. I would settle for just the tripod.

  15. Perfect C post Kate. Great camera but like Sharon...too much for me to handle.

  16. Great CAPTURE! :D

  17. Its all going on there then! Great photo, impressive camera!

  18. Ohh what I would give for that camera and equipment :) Of course I wouldn't know what to do with it but I would love to try.

  19. Excellent shot! Wow - does someone carry all the parts for him? Guess I'll stick with my little pocket sized point and shoot.
