Need Advice on a whale watching/wildlife setup.
Hi Guys, I am looking for a decent camera kit for whale photography. I run a whale watching boat on the sf bay and along the marin coastline. We have occasionally done private trips to the Farallon Islands as well. I’m not on the largest boat (65ft 120 passengers) and I’m about 30ft off the water in the pilot house so it can really get rocking sometimes. I am trying to get a decent camera on board for pics. I have been looking at the Canon Rebel T7 kits on amazon that comes with a 15-88mm, 70-300mm and a 500mm lense. I am on a boat on the ocean. So I want something that will perform well but won’t break the bank if something happens to it. I grew up in a family that did a lot of underwater and wildlife photography. Life caught up to me but I’m looking to get back into it in a personal level as well as I miss it a lot.
Any advice or suggestions is greatly appreciated.
