My camera set up these days is a Canon EOS 5D Mark2 body with a Canon vertical grip. I know a lot of action photographers usually go with the 1D series for the continuous shutter at 10.5 fps, but I’ve noticed over the past few years that I’ve been shooting less and less sequences, so I really have no need for a camera that fast. The 5D shoots 5 fps which is plenty for me. My prior camera was the original 5D, and from shooting that camera which has a full frame sensor, I never wanted to shoot anything else without one. The colors with this sensor are very good and I set my color temp a bit higher than the standard to give everything a bit of a warmer look. This camera does have a slow flash sync at only 1/200th, but to compensate for this, I use the pocket wizard Flex TT5 transceiver which has a hyper sync setting and I’ve gotten my camera to sync at 1/500th, which is great for shooting flash during the day. By syncing at 1/500th, I can power my flashes at a lower power setting leaving me with a higher flash duration.
For lenses, I use a Sigma 15mm 2.8, Sigma 24-70mm 2.8, Canon 50mm 1.8, and Canon 70-200mm 2.8.
For flashes, I use are 2 Sunpak 622 with different flash heads powered by Lumedyne battery packs and a Sunpak 120J flash. These are controlled by 3 pocket wizard transceivers.
