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
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
so she also bought a Canon 60D camera.
Recently, Betty-Lou bought a new camera: the Canon 7D
