Did you know that photojournalist Harry Benson uses only the Canon EOS-1D Mark II for the past couple of years? He has used everything of course from a 4 x 5 plate camera to Rolleiflex, Minolta, Nikon and Hasselblad, but the Canon Mark II â€œhas been an amazing change for me. I have a new freedom and donâ€™t have to set up lights and still the photographs are perfectly exposed,â€ he says.
Benson shares his personal thoughts and memorable moments in history on Kingston Technologyâ€™s â€˜Icons of Photographyâ€™ website.
He was standing next to Bobby Kennedy when the senator was shot, and he said he had to steel himself to be able to document that horrifying moment. â€œThe camera acted as blinders and I just kept shooting,â€ he recalls.
