The second annual Press Camp was held at Deer Valley Ski Resort in Park City, a couple of weeks ago. Exhibitors included, Scott, Orbea, WTB, Mongoose, Race Face, Fox, and Cannondale. Since I live about 45 minutes away in Salt Lake City, I felt it was my moral duty to drive up, ride the Deer Valley bike park and help site managers Gregg and Thien out with photos for their Press Camp coverage. I’ve made a small gallery of images that show off some of the trails and landscape of Deer Valley. I also got a few photos of Gregg and some of the other attendees riding the trails.
For those of you interested in photography, I mostly used the Canon EOS 7D digital SLR and Canon EF-S 18-200mm IS zoom lens for the photos in the 2010 Press Camp gallery. The Canon EOS 7D was my number one pick in the Top Five Mountain Bike Digital Cameras article I wrote last year. The 7D is super fast with excellent auto focus and HD video. Combined with the 18-200mm IS zoom lens, I have a compact, powerful and relatively packable mountain bike camera setup.
