Most photographers covering the Olympics are using insane gear that you or I could never afford, but one photojournalist is snapping shots of the games using the humble iPhone 4S. Working for The Guardian, Dan Chung is capturing the 30th Olympiad with his iPhone 4S, a pair of Canon binoculars, occasionally a Schneider lens, and a copy of Snapseed.
Generally, Chung restrains his comments to just describing the action, but will occasionally offer a bit more detail about the photography. Like in the Archery shot above, where he admits:
“Getting shots like this with the IPhone and binocular combination is an almost impossible challenge at low burst rate it shoots.”
Even so, the majority of the photography he gets is fantastic. It just goes to show, it’s about the photographer, not the gear.
