Canon is a name synonymous with quality professional and consumer photographic equipment. Trish's camera of choice for the long term Photo identification survey of the Humpback Whales in Hervey Bay is a Canon EOS 1000F with a 100-300 and a 35-80 zoom lens. She has to stand on a moving vessel for hours at a time each day, over a three month period, to obtain the 5000 35mm images of the Humpbacks needed each season for The Oceania Research Project. The lightweight, versatility, durability and reliability of the Canon EOS 1000F has proven it to be an essential tool for the work in Hervey Bay. Thank you Canon Australia.

Canon Compact Digital Cameras
Our camera of choice for cameo photographs used in the Expedition Journal is a Canon Compact Digital Camera

Canon Compact Digital Cameras are versatile and convenient. Pictures taken during the day are downloaded directly onto the MacIntosh Titanium Powerbook, so everyone can see how they turned out and how they will look online.

The photograph of Manya King (Right) - our youngest Expedition participant in 1996 - was taken inside the Expedition vessel in very low light conditions.

Visit the Expedition Journal and share the experience.
