Having recently purchased the Canon 100D and 40mm pancake lens recently, I decided to take the on a trip to Thailand. Unknowingly it turned into one of the biggest tests for the camera, the lens and their ability to handle a variety of situations, environments and conditions, from 33C heat to monsoon rainstorm on the street and by motorcycle. Although not the highest end of cameras in the canon range sitting next to the 700D, between the lowest end 1100D and 70D. This little camera surprised me with its fantastic usability, portability, robustness and ability to handle all kinds of weather, despite not being fully weather sealed like the higher end full frame models.
Below are some pictures I took using this set up on the beaches of Thailand.

I was surprised to find the amount of fish that lived in the rivers of Bangkok, seeing them wrestle over crumbs of bread provided a good photo opportunity.
Riding around the city of Bangkok on a boat is certainly something that needs to be tried.
Being in Bangkok it was impossible to leave without visiting the major temples dotted around the city.
Walking around the streets of Thailand is a key part to a trip to Thailand. Experience the warm hearted and welcoming Thai hospitality, with traders, food everywhere and “tuk tuks” racing between the streets.
That more or less wraps up the photographs I made in Thailand. It was a fantastic experience and the best opportunity to test out my photography equipment, which passed all the tests I could have imagined for it in real world testing conditions with flying colours.
- All the best.
