Yeah, most modern photojournalists use full size cameras, with battery grips.
However this camera is based on the EOS 1D, it's a complete body, with the
vertical grip as part of the camera. Some are now using the mirrorless cameras,
it's something that is gaining in popularity as they are finally getting features
of the larger cameras. Photojournalists need speed out of their cameras.
Yes photojournalists are pack animals. Because the one piece of equipment
you don't carry with you is usually the one you end up needing.
Great figure! Considering the bullet proof vest I'm guessing he's a war
photographer. But I have to admit, I've never seen a bag that has a leg strap
like a holster. When I was able to get a second camera for my figure, it came
with all of the lenses, but the body didn't have the neck strap.
I wanted to get the body with the 300mm lens. But they seem a bit hard to
find and when you do they cost quite a bit. But I'm loving the figure!
