My Favorite Accessory For Fall 2006

I get a lot of emailed questions about my equipment…no, 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.

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

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

    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

    What? No L lenses? :P
    By the way, could you please please enlarge your photos to 1024×768 or at least 800×600. 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.

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

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

    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!

    I can’t wait to see new photos. I found this blog a couple of days ago, throughout style.com, 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?

    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!!!!!
