The key kit that the pros use to take their photographs
The ultimate creative toolkit with superb low-light performance, deep learning AF and 5.5K RAW video. "This camera is an extension of my hand but also my eyes," Vladimir says. "I use it almost subconsciously, which allows me to focus only on my subject. I love the handling of Canon; when you get a new camera, you feel like you've had it before because it's just so familiar and easy to use."
With its incredible f/1.2 maximum aperture, the super-fast EF 50mm f/1.2L USM is a consummate low-light performer. A lens that allows fine creative control over focusing and depth of field. Vladimir says: "My standard lens – I shoot so much with this. I can shoot portrait, action – it's my favourite for sure."
This versatile lens gives great results in portrait work and handheld movie-making, thanks to its ability to achieve a shallow depth of field with beautiful bokeh. "One of the sharpest lenses – it has a beautiful and rich texture," says Vladimir.
This fast, lightweight and high-quality telephoto lens is the perfect tool for capturing indoor sports in low-light conditions and for shooting portrait photography. "It's great for portraits, action and gives the most beautiful bokeh," says Vladimir.
A high-performance medium telephoto lens for professional photographers. Vladimir says: "A great lens for special shoots."
A fast-aperture super-telephoto lens that delivers a professional performance – ideal for sports, news and wildlife photography. "It's always with me trackside, where you can't get as close to the action due to safety reasons," says Vladimir. "I also use it for a lot of panning."
Part of Canon's range of EF Cinema prime lenses, the CN-E14mm T3.1 L F offers spectacular 4K image quality and a full frame image circle plus great low-light performance and fine creative control over focusing and depth of field. "This is a great lens, razor-sharp from the centre into the corners of the frame," says Vladimir.
From the Canon series of prime lenses, the CN-E 50mm T1.3 L F is a lightweight (1.1kg), compact fixed focal length lens designed for EF mounts. "I just love a 50mm lens of any kind," says Vladimir. "I use a variety of 50mm cine lenses, all the way down to some old great FDs. This version just sits so nicely in your hand."
Compact and weighing only 1.3kg, this short telephoto prime lens offers spectacular 4k image quality, a natural angle of view and perspective and is ideal for low-light shooting and shallow depth of field. Vladimir says: "It's always rewarding when shooting wide open because of its beautiful texture and colour transmission."
