What Were Photographers Shooting With in 2001?

Even just two decades ago, the photography industry was a vastly different place, and the sort of gear photographers used was quite different. This fun video follows a photographer as he discusses what was in his gear bag back in 2001.

Coming to you from Adam Gibbs, this interesting video features him discussing what he was using back in 2001. 2001 was certainly quite a different time, even though it was only two decades ago. Film still generally reigned king, and the digital revolution was only just beginning. In fact, Canon had only introduced the D30 (their first completely in-house developed DSLR) the year before, and the Nikon D1 had only been released in 1999, and both cameras only offered low-resolution crop sensors. It would not be until a few years later that digital cameras would outpace film cameras in sales and the digital revolution would really start to take hold. I remember that I was shooting with a little Canon Rebel film camera back then and still favoring Kodak Tri-X and Gold films. To me, digital was just a novelty, and I would not get serious about it until quite a few years later. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Gibbs.
