Being a Pro Photographer like Gordon is, what camera or indeed, cameras does he use!

Take 3 guesses, who ever can get 3 out of the 3 cameras that Gordon uses most of the time wins the grand prize of...reading/knowing far to much about Gordon Laing!

Just a bit of fun, hopefully Gordon doesn't place sanctions on me for this - his name isn't copyrighted anyway :twisted:

Let the Games - BEGIN!




- I Vote Canon EOS 1Ds MkIII, Canon EOS 1D MkIII, Canon 40D

Well I'm guessing a 5d, a 400d and a D80 although I'm sure he has more

Well here goes...

Canon EOS 350D (because of something he posted yesterday)

Canon EOS 5D

Nikon D80

Or then he could surprise us all..... and use a point and shoot most of the time he does rave a lot about them in his reviews.

Well, at least he "has access to" a 5D many times, but other than that, the answer depends on the tests he is currently doing, so the last time you asked, it was the Canon 40D and the Sony A700 :D
If Gordon would only post all his test-photos on flickr, we could do a little statistic...
But then we would know what he is currently testing, which is top secret :shock: :!:

The ones posted on his personal web page seem to have been taken with a "point and shoot". The ones from the trip to Japan, that is.

Every professional photographer seems to own a Canon 1D, so I'd guess that one at least is a surefire guess. :-P

As lenses are a big investment, I'd say he does not own any Nikon model.

These days, everyone's cellphone has a camera, so maybe the third one is a Nokia?

I forgot to mention you have to mention the EXACT 3 models.

E.g. Nikon D200, Canon 40D, Canon 5D

The order doesn't matter, just the 3 camera names. Lenses etc don't matter.

Please give the 3 and their names. Mobile phone cameras count, just name the full name of the phone! E.g. Nokia N95

Gordon has mentioned ties with the dark days: perhaps an Olympus OM?

Luis, you caught me out - me and my Nokia N70!

Only kidding - although I do have one...

Thomas is right though - the cameras I use the most are the ones I'm testing right now. So without giving anything away about the next couple of reviews, none of them are DSLRs...
