It’s “Black Friday”, the Friday after Thanksgiving. The biggest shopping day of the year in the US and the day the retailers use to gauge consumer spending for the holiday season. If you haven’t seen enough photographic gear (lust) to last you till next year then take a look at my Canon 40D rig. It’s a perfectly workable rig for any pro shooter or serious amateur and will last for thousands and thousands of exposures with the right care.
And for those of you that think the “prosumer” Canon 40D is not really a professional grade rig (this includes the Canon Professional Services folks) please watch the video of Scott Audette setting up a 30D and 40D for Reuters to remotely capture the Space Shuttle launch (courtesy Rob Galbraith’s blog).
If you decide to price out a 40D for yourself I always recommend these two shops in NYC. Tell em Joe McNally sent you. (Can’t hurt)
