Getty's Olympic Camera Gear Is Every Photographer's Dream

Getty's Olympic Camera Gear Is Every Photographer's Dream

I know, I know. It's about the photographer, not the gear. But if you can look at all the gear Getty is sending photographers to the Olympics with and not salivate, well, you're stronger than me.

Working for Getty has its perks, not the least of which include access to the latest and greatest camera gear. Michael Heiman, Managing Editor at Getty's New York Office, recently posted a few pictures of the company's collection of gear for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

I don't drool either :), I'm more into Foveon camera's these days.

With the situation in Brazil being what it is, should they be advertising this? Better not wear that Getti Images badge if you have one.

Not every photographer's dream, maybe a Canon photographer's dream.
