UPDATE: New photos added. Each is provided by Dustin Long.
Today we're pleased to announce that wedding and event videographer, Dustin Long, is the winner and new owner of a DSLR kit that is great for shooting on the run. He'll be upgrading his camera support as well which will allow for more unique shots. The kit includes: 1) Canon EOS 70D with an EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM and a Zacuto Marauder with a Zacuto Z-Finder Pro 2.5x. We anticipate he'll spread joy as an event and wedding videographer and founder of Long Creative.
"I'm excited to try out the gear! I have watched/read reviews about all of the products and everything has been positive. This will be very nice during weddings! I usually mount a GoPro as a wide shot, my wife will run a canon with a zoom lens on a tripod, and I usually run around with a monopod to get more intimate and unique shots of the couple. The handheld support will allow me to get a wide range of shots without adjusting the length, like with the monopod." – Dustin Long
If called upon to shoot many other projects including sports highlights, the Canon 70D should provide him more versatility. In between shooting, Dustin also shoots portraits and the 70D will provide a nice second camera there. We're excited to see more and hope you'll all check out Dustin’s work and share stories in the comments.
