Cheap Camera Gear, Good Photos - It Doesn't Have To Cost The Earth

Cheap camera gear, good photos?

Is it possible?

Course it is. Here are 10 awesome camera / lens combos under £500 that I’ve personally used over the years. I’ll even pop some other suggestions at the end of the blog.

(and yes I know £500 is still a lot of money, but in the grand scheme of photography you can certainly spend a whole lot more!)

My Top 10 Photos of 2018 (Micro Four Thirds)

My Top 10 Photos of 2018 (Micro Four Thirds)

I think 2018 has been a great year for my photography outside of my commissioned work. I’ve evolved my colour grading quite a bit, and I think — even through sheer practice and time spent on photography — my skills have improved quite a bit.

That’s one of the reasons why I love photography so much: There’s always room to improve. There’s always a new skill to learn, a new technique to try, a new project to take on.

Isn’t that all a bit cool?

So the Zhiyun Weebill Lab has some big boots to fill.

How does it compare?
