2008, Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens, MT-24EX twin flash
One nice thing about my recent trip to South Africa was that I could revisit the same species I shot on my last visit in 2003. Only, with decent equipment this time around. Check out the difference between the SLR (above) and the little coolpix digicam (below).
2003, Nikon Coolpix 995, onboard flash
An obvious contrast is the stronger magnification of the SLR system, but I’d hold that the most important aspect is the flexibility of the off-camera flash, allowing for tight control over the lighting. Now I’ll have to reshoot everything I did with the earlier camera.
