Wildlife Photography - Frequently Asked Questions


I have been a Travel and Wildlife photographer for over two decades and have met many enthusiasts over the years. During my travels and photo shoots, many people have asked me about the best wildlife viewing locations and tips on wildlife photography and equipment. I do not accept any advertisement or commission from equipment manufacturers and sellers on my website. My recommendation comes from practical field experience.

Below are some frequently asked questions I have provided answers for. There is no perfect equipment for all situations. All equipment have limitations and it is usually a tradeoff and compromise when choosing the appropriate gear for the job. These are my personal opinion formed from many years out in the field and by no means the only answers or appropriate for everyone. Visit my Equipment section to get details on the camera gear mentioned and read my articles on watching and photographing wildlife.


Q : What is the best overall camera for wildlife photography for under $2,000?

A : This is always a difficult question to answer. Many factors contribute to a good photograph - skill and experience, luck, and of course, equipment. All things being equal, generally, the better the equipment, the better the photo. My pick for the 'best' wildlife camera under $2,000 is the Canon EOS-7D with the 18 MP APS-C sensor, 19 AF points and 8 fps. You can read my review of the camera on my Blog.

Q : What is the best overall lens for wildlife photography for under $2,000?

A : This is another difficult question to answer and the same caveat above applies. If one prefers a prime lens, my pick will be the Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM, but for those who prefer a zoom lens, then it is the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM or the EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM, depending on focal length requirement. Canon will be announcing the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens some time in August. You can read my review of these lenses on my Blog.

Q : What is the best overall camera for wildlife photography, price independent?

A : Now this is an easy answer for me. It is the Canon EOS-1D X. I have been using the EOS-1 series camera since 1989 and this latest body is simply the best yet. You can read my review of this camera on my website. The EOS-1D X doubles up for me as a Travel and Wildlife body since it is a full frame camera. When used with the EF 8-15mm f/4L and the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II lenses, it is an beatable combo for Travel and Landscape photograpy as well.

Q : What is your opinion on Canon's Series II super telephoto lens?

A : I photograph many different kinds of wildlife, from a small Hummingbird to the Blue whale, the largest animal on Planet Earth, ever. Since I am not exclusively a Bird Photographer, I do not own the biggest Canon lens but have used all of them, ranging all the way up to the EF 800mm f/5.6L IS. The longest Canon lens I own is the EF 500mm f/4L IS II. In my opinion, Canon has overpriced the Series II lens in relation to their incremental improvement. For those who already own the Series I lens, it is a tough decision to upgrade because of the price differential. For those who aspire to own the super telephoto lens, there is a market of reasonably priced Series I lens. However, the one super telephoto lens I am very keen on is the Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM Extender 1.4X lens

Q : What is the best camera/lens combination for wildlife photography, price independent?

A : Personally, I like to travel light and have all my gear fit into a bagpack I can carry on my back and on airplanes. The ideal combo for me is the Canon EOS-1D X and EOS-1D MK IV bodies, plus the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II and EF 200-400mm f/4L IS + 1.4X lens. With extenders, I have focal length of between 70mm to 1040mm to work with. The equipment are professional grade, all weather sealed and stand up to harsh use.

Q : I am a budding wildlife photographer on a limited budget. What is the best value in camera equipment I can buy?

A : Commercial Digital Photography has only been around for about founteen years and we are very fortunate today to have DSLR cameras that give us instant feedback. For those who are on a tight budget, I recommend purchasing Canon refurbished equipment or lightly used equipment from someone you can trust. Today's camera equipment are very rugged and if it has been taken care of, it should last a long time. I recommend buying the Canon EOS-7D body with the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM lens. This will give any photographer a well rounded piece of gear that can handle most wildlife encounters and obtain good photos. Take a look at my article on buying refurbished Canon equipment on my Blog.

Q : What is your favorite lens for Wildlife Photography, price independent?

A : Canon has quite a few lens I like for Wildlife Photography but the most versatile one for me is the EF 400mm f/4 DO IS lens. This super telephoto lens is a one-off design from Canon utilizing Diffractive Optics technology. The weight/image quality of this lens is perfect for my use and I can handhold this lens mounted on the EOS-1D body all day, giving me unparalled mobility.

Q : What is your favorite lens for Travel Photography, price independent?

A : There are many Canon lens that are great for Travel Photography but my favorite one is the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS lens. This medium speed zoom lens has the perfect focal length for scenery and people photography. Although the technology in this lens is getting old and the coating and IS is of an older generation, it is still a top performer for me and the price is very reasonable for "L" grade glass.

Q : What are your favorite wildlife and where do you go to photograph them?

A : I enjoy the great outdoors and love the natural world with all its floral and fauna. My favorite group of animals are Cetacean (whales and dolphins), Ursus (Polar, Brown and Black bears) and Big Cats (Tigers, Lions, Leopards, Jaguars, etc.) My home state of California is centrally located to many wildlife photography sites. North and south east Alaska, west and east coast of North America and the Caribbean, Mexico and Hawaii are some of my favorite whale watching spots. Bears can be found and photographed in Alaska and Canada. I head to India, Africa and Brazil for Big Cats photography. Visit my Wildlife Photography page to see these exciting wildlife on location.

Q : Are there any other lens you can recommend for Travel and Wildlife Photography?

A : I have used almost every lens in Canon's EF and EF-S lineup through the decades. You can read my Blog post to get further information on the other lenses.







Mike's Equipment Bag



I have been fascinated by wildlife, nature and world travel from a young age. Minolta was my first SLR camera and eventually I ended up with the Canon EOS-10 and EOS-1 SLR cameras. When the digital D30 came out in 2000, I agonized over the high price but bought one in the end. It opened my eyes to the possibilties of digital photography. To me, photographing wildlife can be very frustrating sometimes. Huge expenses, long hours of traveling and waiting come down to a few crucial shots. The instant feedback of the DSLR improves the odds. My personal preference is to travel light and handhold my camera.

No advertisement or commission from equipment manufacturers and sellers are accepted on my website. My observations and recommendation come from years of field experience. A combination of the following gear will go with me on my photo shoots, depending on need. Occasionally, I will get a loaner from Canon for evaluation but I always own the equipment that are essential to my work. You can read my articles on how and where to photograph wildlife. Click on the Videos to see these incredible animals in action.

You can subscribe to my posts on Facebook , Flickr , Twitter and my Blog to follow my travels and join me on my photo shoots. If you would like to buy or license a print, please email me with your request.



EOS 1D-X - With a maximum speed of up to 14 fps, 18 megapixel and 61-point AF system, this new piece of equipment may be another ideal wildlife camera for me. It is a full frame camera, the superior native ISO performance and lighting fast frame rate will make photographing moving wildlife in dim light easier and when combined with the 1D MK IV body, will provide me with unmatched flexibility on photo shoots. The 1D-X combined with the new 200-400mm f/4L IS lens, with the 1.4X built in extender, will make an awesome combo for wildlife photography. I have used all the 1D bodies since its inception and still prefer the 1.3X APS-H sensor of the MK IV for the extra reach. When I upgraded from the 1D MK III to the MK IV, it was a small incremental improvement but the 1D-X is essentially a new and much improved body. I have received my EOS 1D X camera and have put it through real world, wildlife photo shoots in Alaska, Canada and Europe. Click here to read my review on the camera.

EOS 1D MK IV - 10 fps, 16 megapixel and 45-point AF system make this rugged camera an ideal wildlife choice for me. The 1.3X APS-H sensor brings me a little closer to the action. The noise level is good when photographing moving wildlife in dim light with ISO up to 3200. I have used all the 1D bodies through the decades and this is my one of my favorite cameras to date and trusted workhorse for wildlife shoots. The MK IV has doubled up for me as a travel and landscape camera when combined with the Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L II and the 24-105mm f/4L lenses. The MK IV will serve me well as the other 1D body I turn to when I want a little extra reach.

EOS 1Ds MK III - Full frame, 45-point AF and 21 megapixel make this camera the workhorse for me when I take landscape and travel photos. The resolution of its LCD monitor is really 'primitive' compared to the newer models. Although the MK III is showing its age, the rugged built and professional features still make this an impressive camera but I am anxious to see if Canon will eventually come out with a mega pixel, full frame camera to replace the 1Ds MK III. If there are no successor to the 1Ds Mk III, I will buy the EOS-5D MK III soon.

EOS 7D - In my opinion, this is the best value in DSLR today. The 1.6X APS-C sensor, 8 fps, 18 megapixel and 19-point AF system make this body ideal for wildlife and bird photography. When lighting conditions are not ideal and the wildlife is moving, the drawback is the noise level is less than acceptable to me over ISO 2000. With good light, the camera's performance is hard to beat. I like the added reach of the 7D and put the Canon BG-E7 grip on the body to give it a 1D like feel. By early 2013, the 7D MK II should be available and will have a more advanced AF system, dual DIGIC V processors, a new sensor, better high ISO noise reduction and perhaps a 10 fps burst rate. I can't wait to upgrade this camera.

EF 400mm f/4 DO IS - This is my favorite Canon lens for wildlife photography. Although not the sharpest in Canon's lineup, the weight, speed and performance combination is hard to beat for a full day's photo shoot without a tripod. I have taken most of my bird-in-flight shots with this amazingly under-rated lens. The lens performs well with the 1.4X and 2.0X extenders. When used with the 1D MK IV, I can shoot at 1000mm focal length handholding the combo. This gives me unmatched mobility and reach. An upgrade of the IS system to 4 stops would be most welcome.

EF 400mm f/5.6L - This is another one of my favorite Canon lens for wildlife photography. First introduced in 1993, it lacks Image Stabilization found in most EF lenses these days but it is one of the sharpest lens in Canon's lineup. The relative light weight and performance combination is hard to beat for a full day's photo shoot without a tripod. I have taken many of my bird-in-flight shots with this amazingly under-rated lens as well. The lens performs well with the 1.4X extenders. When used with the EOS-1D bodies, it can autofocus down to f/8. This gives me unmatched mobility and reach. An upgrade of this venerable lens with an IS system would be great.

EF 200-400mm f/4L IS - My ideal lens combo for wildlife photography is the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II and the 200-400mm f/4L IS with the built in 1.4X extender. This way I can travel 'light' and still have the highest quality glass covering a wide range of focal lengths. Canon finally released this lens for sale on May 14, 2013 at a price of $11,799. Click here to read my extensive review of this revolutionary lens. I have put this amazing glass through many vigorous wildlife photo shoots around the globe and it continues to surprise me by its performance.

EF 500mm f/4L IS II - One of my favorite Super telephoto lens in Canon's lineup. I have the Series II version and this is one of their sharpest and a great wildlife lens. When I use a full sized tripod, this glass is my choice and sometimes I handhold this lens for a short period of time. The Series I lens has been discontinued but one can still buy it from dealers with left over inventory. The new lens comes with superior optics and coatings, is incrementally better in every way and reduces the weight by 1 1/2 pound.

The improvement comes at a much higher price of $10,499. If you already have the Series I lens, I am not recommending an upgrade unless reducing weight is your primary concern. Personally, I find the marginal improvement not to be a good value but since I sold my Series I lens for a good price, buying the Series II is a no-brainer. For those with less funds to spend, try and purchase a lightly used or factory reconditioned Series I lens and save.

Together with the EF 200-400mm f/4L IS 1.4X and EF 400mm f/4 DO IS, these lenses form the backbone of my Super Telephoto lens inventory. Click here to see how the EF 500mm f/4L lens is made.

EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS - My ideal lens combo for wildlife photography is the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II and the 200-400mm f/4L IS with the built in 1.4X extender. However, there are situations when I am restricted to just one lens or it's impractical to change lens, then I reach for the EF 28-300mm. This versatile 10X+ zoom lens has very good optical performance and can focus down to less than two and a half feet over the entire focal length. This is a great wildlife lens especially in Hawaii. I call this my 'Maui lens' because the Humpback whales can come just a few feet from my zodiac and this lens will capture the image with little problem, even on APS-C cameras.

EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II - Super sharp and fast lens for close up wildlife action, providing up to 4 stops of correction at all focal lengths. I have used this lens for years and the latest version is the best yet. An excellent lens for closeup, lowlight travel and wildlife photography and works well with both the 1.4X and 2.0X extenders.

EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS - I held off buying this lens for a while because the 70-300mm DO was such a disappointment for me. The extra reach and lighter weight ( compared to the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II ) of this lens comes in handy when I am photographing larger wildlife in decent light. Excellent 4 stop IS compensation. Another great lens for cetacean and wildlife photo shoots. The drawbacks are extenders cannot be used on this lens and it does not come with a zoom ring.

EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS - A 'light weight', all round wildlife lens with excellent build. It uses a push - pull design to get from 100mm to 400mm. I am not a fan of this kind of setup because the lens is susceptible to dust getting inside the tube. Although not a fast lens, its versatility more than offsets the shortcoming but the design on the lens is getting old. Excellent for wildlife and whale photography. Image quality is decent with the 1.4X extender on 1D bodies. Canon will come out with the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4-5.6L IS II as a replacement some time in the second half of 2014.

EF 300mm f/4L IS - Another excellent, handhold wildlife lens. Unless speed is paramount, I prefer this lens over the 300mm f/2.8L II IS because it gives up a very small difference in sharpness at about half the weight and a fraction of the price. Works well with the 1.4X extender. In an emergency, the 2.0X extender can work as well with the 1D bodies but the image quality is not great.

EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro - Superb macro lens that can be used with extenders. Excellent build with medium fast speed. A must own lens for serious macro photography. I have used it to photograph Hummingbirds closeup when the lighting conditions are good.

EF 24-105mm f/4L IS - A great, all round lens for travel and landscape photography. This lens is always on my 1Ds MK III or 1D MK 4 when I take travel photos or closeup wildlife shots. The focal lengths and speed are ideal for indoor and outdoor shooting conditions although the IS offers only a 2 stop advantage.

EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II - This lens is great for wide angle landscape shots on the 1Ds MK III and a versatile travel lens on the 1D MK IV as well. Very sharp and fast. Can be used indoors when flash photography is prohibited. Canon has announced the EF 16-35mm f/4L IS lens recently. This lens will also find a home in my equipment bag soon.

EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye - This lens is for landscape and wildlife photographers who want the look and feel only possible with extreme wide angle and fisheye photography. With its unique focal length range, the EF 8-15mm f/4L USM is the world's widest fisheye zoom lens. It delivers 180 diagonal angle of view images for all EOS SLR cameras with imaging formats ranging from full-frame to APS-C, and provides 180 circular fisheye images for full-frame EOS models. I use this lens to photograph whales and other marine animals when I am in the water. To do it professionally, I use my EOS-1D Mk IV camera with the EF 8-15mm lens and the AquaTech underwater housing, topped with a dome lens port for maximum angle of view. On land, this super wide angle lens will capture stunning nature photos and stimulate creativity.

Extender EF 1.4X and 2.0X III - Series III extenders offer a 40% or 100% boost to the focal length of the lens with a corresponding loss of 1 to 2 stops in aperture setting. Although they focus faster, I find no noticable IQ improvement in the latest extenders over the Series II versions under real world conditions and use them only sparingly. The Series III extenders are supposed to mate especially well with the Series II Super Telephoto lens but I cannot find any evidence to that claim. I am not a big fan of extenders and will use my legs first to close the distance between me and my subjects.

Speedlite 600EX-RT - I am not a big user of flash but sold my 580 EX II for a good price and upgraded to the 600 RT-EX. Professional quality and build makes this flash perfect for the 1D bodies. It offers an expanded zoom range and a higher guide number, plus a number of improvements over its predecessor in both operation and feel. With the added wireless two-way radio communication, it allows additional creativity.

SLIK PRO SBH-550 Ball Head - This compact, light weight ball head is perfect for photographer like myself who prefers to travel light and do not want to over pay for any gear. It weighs a mere 1.3 pounds and is rated for a 22 pound load. I can mount the EF 800mm f/5.6L IS USM lens and the Canon 1D X camera with extender on it with plenty of weight to spare. It is professional grade, solidly built and comes with a very reasonable price.

SLIK PRO 634 CF - This compact carbon fiber tripod is perfect for me who prefers to travel light. It weighs a mere 2 pounds and is rated for a 7 pound load. I regularly put about 8.5 pounds of equipment (Canon 1D MK IV with 400mm DO and ball head) on it with no problem at all. SLIK is one of the best value in compact carbon fiber tripods in my opinion.

SLIK PRO 824 CF - This light weight, full sized carbon fiber tripod weighs only 3.5 pounds but can support over 17 pounds of equipment. That's enough for a top of the line ball head, Canon 1D body and up to the Canon 800mm f/5.6L IS lens. I use this tripod when the job calls for a full size, big lens combo. SLIK is one of the best kept secret in carbon fiber tripods and ball heads today. The technology and quality are first rate and the prices are reasonable.

Tamrac Expedition 8X Backpack - This is the pack I use to carry the most extensive collection of equipment when I go 'heavy'. The main compartment is completely foam padded with numerous adjustable dividers to protect multiple pro-size digital SLRs, a full range of lenses (up to the 800mm f/5.6L), flashes and a laptop. The best thing is it's 'small' enough to be carried on planes.

Tamrac Adventure 9 Backpack - I use this Backpack when I travel 'light'. This pack is divided into upper and lower padded compartments. The lower compartment can accommodated 2 pro-size bodies and 2 lenses. The upper compartment can accommodate additional equipment including the Canon 400mm f/4 DO lens and there is room for a laptop. The pack is small enough for me to take on planes in addition to a carryon suitcase.
