My Favorite Accessory For Fall 2006

I get a lot of emailed questions about my, I mean my camera!
As an investment in my blog i just bought the Canon 5D and a 50mm/1.4 lens.
This is the equipment I used in Europe for the mens shows and I have rented when shooting GQ or other assignments. If you liked the photograph before it will take two big steps forward. Partly because of the new camera (I shot Dior Boy with a Canon 5D as an example) but also now that I will be working full-time I will be shooting more in the evening when the light is really great. Up to now I could only shoot in the morning and midday when the light is much less forgiving.

Love your site, absolutely love it - as I'm from SF but lived in New York for three years and now live LA, and so miss NY, thanks for putting me on the streets. My question, as a new student to photography, what camera did you learn on? - What is my best choice manual camera?
Thank you in advance for any suggestions and have a great season.

what were you using before?

Oh man, I can't wait--your photos are so beautiful already.

Nice to hear you'll be going full time now, I look forward to seeing how you grow the site.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:57 PM) : 

isn't that camera a bit overkill for photos that are only being published online?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:11 PM) : 

Hope the big pro equipment doesn't take the spontaneity out of your photos. People may react differently now.

I will use this camera for GQ also

This is very similar to the camera I use now and I rented this same model for the Europe trip I did in June/July

everyone is loving 5D these days. but is it good enough for simple fashion shoot also?


Blogger simonsezblog said ... (9:27 PM) : 

What? No L lenses? :P
By the way, could you please please enlarge your photos to 1024x768 or at least 800x600. It sucks to try to make out the sartorial details on tiny pictures.

Great choice in camera Scott.
The best out there for the dollar value.
Over kill asked one? Not at all.
Pixels are not the whole story. The white balance and detail with this body is suburb. Scott will now be able to crop details out of the picture (ie: pocket squares, tie knots, a necklace or a purse) and it will hold up and still look good.

Have you ever shot with a Leica or another rangefinder? They are great for street photography since they are small and offer many compact high speed lenses.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:58 AM) : 

I was wondering... what is your take on digital cameras?


Blogger Lorna said ... (1:44 PM) : 

Sartorialist, please give us a photography masterclass, or a least some insight into your methods.

Before this Canon 5D... which Cam you used?



Blogger rachel said ... (11:01 PM) : 

i love the 5d. i have the 10d but when i upgrade its going to be to that one. the mark just isn't in the budget... beautiful pictures too by the way!!


Blogger Kubus said ... (12:26 PM) : 

Which camera did you you use before this one??
Any experients with the canon eos 350 or 400?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:27 AM) : 

Hi, I'm regularly reading your blog (with facehunter, and coacd) yours is at the top quality for me, eventhough not leaving comments... shoots are so pretty, I don't have the words anyway; Can you name the camera you were using before the 5D? interested to know what engine gave us pretty pictures!
keep the camera shooting!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:50 PM) : 

I can't wait to see new photos. I found this blog a couple of days ago, throughout, this is possibly the best fashion site I've been on. We'll atleast one that really gives me what I need :D Lot's of pictures.
I dig your work! So keep it up ;)

the question isn't what camera you use, but how do you get such great pictures out of these people? do you chat them up BEFORE taking the picture or do you just sneak up on them and shoot?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:21 PM) : 

Funnily enough I used to take shots on the streets of London for the Independent newspaper - exactly the same sort of shots (although I always had briefs to stick to and a crappy point and shoot camera and stopped a year or so ago) - I've just bought the canon 5d myself and use a 50 mm lens - so sartorialist - you're in good company!!!!!
