Recently I’ve mentioned about my Anytime Anywhere kit that I keep with me all the time for those just incase the chance of a portrait should present itself moments.

I’ve been asked about the kit a number of times over on social media having posted a number of portraits taken with it and you can see the main post HERE.

Basically, this is was the kit: Canon 5D MKIII, Lumiquest III Softbox, Phottix Mitros+ Flash and the Phottix Odin Transmitter:

Even more recently I’ve made a change to the kit by swapping out the Canon 5D MKIII for a new Canon 760D that I purchased last week.

Why? Well a number of reasons really, with the main ones being:

  • It can stay in my Anytime Anywhere bag unlike the 5D which is my workhorse
  • It’s small & Light
  • The LCD screen is moveable
  • Great quality
  • Great Price
  • Perfect for days away/holidays for the reasons above

PLUS it wouldn’t be such a disaster if I lost it whereas if I lost my 5D it would!

Like I’ve mentioned, I’ve only had the camera for just over a week now but am seriously impressed with the quality especially as it’s marketed as a for beginners.

I’ll be posting pictures taken with the 760D and my Anytime Anywhere kit over the coming days, weeks but to finish for today, a HUGE thanks to my Buddy Brian Worley for the recommendation for this great little camera/companion!

Oh one extra thing to mention…as this Canon 760D has a crop sensor (1.6x) I’ve also replaced the 85mm f/1.8 with a 50mm f/1.8 which gives me the equivalent of 80mm; a great lens at a crazy low price and is incredibly sharp!

Cheers,
Glyn

    Beginners cameras are soooo good these days, My first DLSR was a tiny Canon 350D which is absolutely prehistoric by comparison!
