I Wonder if Canon's Are Popular with Olympic Shooters?

End of story.

Hey, that fellow on all fours behind a camera looks like Jeff D.!

Looks like Canon took the gold medal on that one but it makes me wonder what the battery charger station looks like.

Let's see that would be about 60 million megapixels worth of data?

Nice glass hah?
Do you suppose that most of those cameras are 1D Mark II's?
I think I see quite a few film SLR's.

All of the cameras in that top shot are 1D bodies. The camera at far left is a Mark II but the rest appear to be the original 1D, which makes sense because that's been the staple of sports PJ's (due to its speed) since it was introduced.

Someone who covers sports photography for an organization supported in part by Canon remarked that Canon encourages them to take shots that show large groups of white lenses and/or Canon bodies. When they turn in their cards they are supposed to tag cards that feature such shots. Interesting. Certainly can't blame Canon.
