Betty-Lou Luyken Photography


As a satified Konika Minolta user during the time Betty-Lou used film it was a logical step for her to start using Sony equipment.As soon as Sony released their first digital SLR, the Alpha 100, Betty-Lou immediately purchased it.
When the Alpha 700 was released she purchased that one too. For some time she was looking for a longer telelens
(500 mm or 600  mm) and that was difficult to find for the Sony cameras.

In November 2010 Betty-Lou was offered a secondhand 600 mm Canon telelens, which was ideal for her and
so she also bought a Canon 60D camera.
Recently, Betty-Lou bought a new camera: the Canon 7D

The lenses now in use are:

Canon 600 mm F4

Canon 300 mm F4

Sigma 170-500 mm Apo F 5-6.3.
