About My Equipment


Currently I am shooting with a Nikon D90 and D7000. I had contemplated purchasing a D700 full frame camera, but decided to stick with the DX sized D7000 as the crop factor is adventagous for longer focal legnth shots such as the birds of prey I love capturing so much. Another advantage is that all of my lenses work equaly as well with both cameras.
