MY PHILOSOPHY ON CAMERA GEAR

My thoughts on camera gear are to keep it light, simple and reasonably inexpensive. So if you’re looking for a gear-head with a long scrolling list of gear to browse through you’ve come to the wrong place. I want to do the most possible with the least amount to carry around.


Camera Bodies and Lenses

Sony A7ii (View)

The A7ii is my main camera body. It’s a 24-megapixel beast, and it’s the camera I turn to when I’m going on a serious landscape, portrait or outdoor shoot. Great Camera with great low light, awesome image stabilization for a good price without  breaking the bank.

My Lenses of choice: 

  • Sony FE 85mm f/1.8               (View)
  • Sigma 24-105mm F4.0 Art*   (View)
  • Rokinon 14mm F2.8 AF           (View)
  • Sony FE 70-200mm f/4 G OS  (View)

*Adapted with a Sigma MC-11          (View)

 

 

Sony A6000 (View)

The a6000 my backup camera body, as well as my general carry around camera. I mostly use the Sigma 19mm F2.8 EX DN Art lens. Gotta admit this camera still packs a punch for APS-C format camera. Great all purpose camera and starter camera. (highly recommended)

My Lenses of choice:

  • Rokinon 12mm f/2 (View)
  • Sigma 19mm f/2.8 DN (View)
  • Sigma 60 mm f/2.8 DN  (View)

Canon SL1 (View)

The SL1, Is my back up to the back up.... lol yeah, I use this APS-C camera mainly for portraits when my other cameras are not in my reach. Honestly it's not the fastest camera, but size and form factor are still impressive. Not to mention Canon still has the best color gamut out of all the other brands. 

My Lenses of choice:

  • Canon 50mm f/1.8 (View)
  • Canon 24mm f/2.8 (View)
  • Rokinon 85M-C 85mm F1.4 *Canon (View)

TRAVELING WITH MY PHOTOGRAPHY GEAR

As I mentioned above, I like to keep things light and simple. If it doesn’t fit in the bag (and it’s a small bag), it doesn’t come with me. However, if I’m traveling on a plane, I usually pack my tripod, ballhead, and chargers in my carry on luggage. Mainly so I don’t have to go lugging them around in the airport.
