Gear

Hey everyone.

I use a range of gear from digital and film. I have primary equipment and there are things that I am experimenting with.

My primary camera is my Fujifilm X-Pro2 and I love the size and the rangefinder styling of it. I was an avid user of my Canon 60D which there are some photographs on this site taken with that camera. The size of it lead me looking else where especially with traveling and hiking. I started with an X-Pro1 and then upgraded to the X-Pro2.

I have used a few different lenses since I have been into the system. I currently use the 18-55mm lens which is a fantastic kit lens. The images have been great and the size fits in all my bags no problem. I had bought into the 35mm f2 lens and it is quick and smaller then the f1.4 version and is weather resistant like the camera body. Other lenses that I have are the 60mm f2.4, 55-200mm f3.5-4.8, Rokinon 12mm f2 and Rokinon 8mm f2.8. I also use a thumb up grip on the back and it gives me a lot more grip for walking around.

I carry a few transcend 16GB SD cards and spare batteries. The tripod that I currently use is a Manfroto befree which gets pretty compact. I currently use the Adobe CC for all my photo editing software.

 

To carry my equipment I have used a few bags depending on what and where I am going. I have the Lowepro Hatchback 22L AW that I use for hiking and carrying a lot more gear. The laptop pocket on the bag fits a Camel back water bladder 2.5L pretty easily and its nice for those long hikes. My tripod fits in the side pocket and I tie it off at the handle and there is plenty of room inside the bag for gear and then snacks or even a book and a hammock if you need to relax. Other bag I have is a Lowepro Streetline SH140 which I love and carries a lot for travel and a smaller bag that I have is the Domke X-5 FB in brown. Great bag if you have one or two rangefinders and jsut walking around.

I have a few film cameras that I regularly use. I enjoy using the most my Vogitlander Bessa R2 and Bessa R4M with my Canon 50mm f1.4 ltm, Canon 35mm f2.8 ltm and Vogitlander 21mm f4 ltm lenses.
