Here is something I never expected to see in the biggest sporting event in the world: Guardian's Photographer Dan Chung is covering the Olympics using only his iPhone 4S. When you think of photographers who are shooting events like this, you think of guys with suitcases filled with camera bodies and huge lenses. You think of many D4s and many MK IV aimed on the best athletes in the world. What Dan is doing is truly amazing, and i'm sure all the photographers around him look at him and think he's crazy. Check out his crazy results!
As someone who's photographing many big sporting events - from NBA games to College football or European basketball finals - I always wanted to show up one day bringing only a cellphone or disposable camera and sit next to all the other photographers with their 400mm lenses. I never had the balls to do it. It's really great to see someone who's doing it, and doing it so well. On the biggest stage in the world.
Dan is using his iPhone 4S, Canon binoculars, few add-on lenses, and Snapseed app for post processing.
