On this episode: your gear questions with Paul Friedman. I spoke with Paul on episode 42 about his camera and lens rental company, Lens Pro To Go. I asked you for your questions about gear and you sent them in. (Thank you!)
Our first question was from Anandi. She wonders if upgrading to a full frame camera will make a difference to her as an amateur family photographer. Next, we have a question from Wilson. Should he buy less expensive lenses made for a crop sensor or full frame lenses?
Jeremy wonders if the name brand lenses are worth the extra expense. And, finally, we have a question from James about lens is good for a family photography on a micro four thirds camera.
I also ask Paul about calibrating lenses and a business question from my husband, Steve, about how Paul got the money for the inventory he started his business with.
Finally, I tell Paul what happened when I took my Canon 7D in an Outex cover underwater in Grand Cayman. I ended up with a waterlogged camera but got these shots before it leaked.
If you are considering upgrading your camera, renting the camera you’re thinking of buying is a great idea. Because my backup camera, the 7D is out of commission, I’m looking for something to replace it. I rented a Canon 5D Mark3 from Lens Pro to Go to check it out. But since I don’t have much invested in Canon maybe I should try a Sony?

This is the video from Lens Pro to Go Paul told us about explaining sensor size.
