Le Mans 2012 - On My Way

June 12, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

I'm heading off to Le Mans on Wednesday for my annual pilgrimage to the Circuit De La Sarthe and the 24 Hours. As always I'll be taking some cameras and getting some photos.

As kit room is at a premium I have perfected my kit over the years, this is what I'll be taking;

Canon 5D MK3 with 100-400 - main camera

Canon 1Ds Mk2 with 24-105 - backup camera and useful for wider shots, ambience etc

Canon 135mm F2 and 1.4x converter, excellent low light lens

Batteries, memory cards, flashes, lens cloths etc.

Walking the circuit for 24 hours means your kit has to be easily portable, I use a Black Rapid dual harness which spreads the weight of the cameras across your shoulders rather than your neck. Other bits, spare lenses etc are carried on Think Tank belt kit, with a harness again to spread the weight across my body. With all this gear I do look a touch paramilitary but Le Mans is no fashion parade, plus everyone knows there are no women at Le Mans (sorry, an in-joke) so as long as I am comfy I'm happy.

I'm writing a piece for http://www.speedstermagazine.com/ on the trip, watch this space. I'll also be tweeting from the circuit, follow me at http://www.twitter.com/markmullenphoto
