Hello everybody, I am a press photographer who has been in the industry for 3 years now and unfortunately all my photography gear got stolen from me violently in the streets of Paris one week ago. I was coming back from a reportage about the "Jungle in Calais" where I twisted my ankle when some people, after spotting I had difficulties walking, kicked me in the leg to make me fall down et run away with my working gear (a Canon 5D mkIII and a 40mm lens). Under the urgency and to be able to keep working without having to ask for camera gear to my colleagues (again, thank you all) I have decided to acquire a Fuji X Pro1 for my professional work. The price for the camera gear (rich people's sport as they say!) does not allow me, currently, to get my hands on the equipment I originally worked with. (3000 euros body only). This explains why my accquisition of the Fuji to be able to produce work. Pitty and good bye video capabilities... I have a budget of 1900 euros in total aimed at purchasing this new camera equipment I require although I would like to get to a safe 1500 euros. Regarding the additional details I must say I currently am a freelance photographer for the french photo agency CIRIC (http://www.photociric.com/fr) as well as the Italien photo agency Nurphoto (http://www.nurphoto.com/en) who are in charge of distributing my work. My work can be seen in my website http://www.michaelbunel.com Thank you all.
