Gurren Lagann's Yoko

posted on by Bamboo Dong

Character: Yoko Littner
Title: Gurren Lagann
Cosplayer: Hezachan
Photographer: Benn & Liz Robbins (Robbins Studios)

We asked the photographers, "What's your camera setup of choice?"

"Benn - Originally we shot with Nikon. we shot primarily with a D70 and a D3000. We now shoot with a Canon 5D Mark II and a 20D. We switched only because we were in need of an upgrade and the Canon 5D literally fell into our laps. Our brother-in-law works at a pawn shop and he got in a Canon 5D Mark II with a 50mm 1.4f lens, a 24mm-105mm lens, a speed flash, 4 batteries, 2 chargers and 3 SD cards in a camera bag. It was only $2500 s we drove down to where he was and bought it right there on the spot. It never even hit the store shelves.

Liz - My favorite camera was one they don't make anymore. It was the Sony Cybershot with the swiveling Carl Zeiss lens. That camera was perfect for guerrilla shooting. It could go macro, portrait, or pretty wide, and with the swivel lens you could get almost any dynamic shot you wanted. If I could figure out how to customize my Canon to do it, I would."
