All eyes will be on Sochi over the next couple of weeks as the world’s greatest athletes compete in the 22nd Winter Olympics. We’ll no doubt be treated to some spectacular sights and sounds from Russia but have you ever wondered what sort of photography gear is required to capture those memorable moments?

Getty Images staffer Robert Cianflone recently snapped and shared the image you see above with PetaPixel. What you are seeing is the photography gear – all $425,659.59 worth – that the team took with them to cover the games. It’s all high-end equipment, most of which didn’t even exist seven years ago when they started planning their coverage.

Here’s a list of everything pictured above:

• 20 Canon 1Dx cameras
• 3 Canon 5DmkIII cameras
• 1 Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro lens
• 2 Canon 14mm fisheye lenses
