What I really want to know is what camera/lenses do you guys use?
Equipment. People are obsessed with equipment. I’m obsessed with equipment. Everyone says it’s not about the equipment and you know it’s not about the equipment, but you’re still obsessed with equipment. One of the most common questions I receive are about equipment (see also: what rooftop is that bro?). Ok, I’m going to stop saying equipment. 🤗
I use Canon equipment (sorry, I like that word). I use Canon because I think they’re the best around. I don’t think Nikon, Sony, Fujifilm etc are bad, I just think Canon are better. I learnt using Nikon, but when I wanted to go full frame I bought a Canon. Because they’re better. I’m not here to tell you to buy Canon although if you were to ask me, that is what I’d suggest. ANYWHO. I thought I’d share the gear I use because some people (me) care about that kind of thing. 🤓
I don’t have much equipment, because it’s expensive. I also avoid buying brand new if I can, because it’s expensive. So here’s a small list of the basics I use.
Canon EOS 6D
Canon EOS 5D Mark III
Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM
Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM
Samyang 14mm f/2.8 IF ED UMC
Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 VC USD
What’s in my bag if I’m packing light for a climb or a wander? Canon 6D and 24-105mm f/4L. A pairing which produces most of my photos apart from the ones that are ultra wide and astrophotography. Seriously, the 24-105L is the best walk around lens in the world and I can’t recommend it enough. It’s also possible to get the Mark I for under £400 second hand. (I sold a spare one recently for £360).
I won’t bore with speedlites, filters, remotes etc but I will say that Manfrotto BeFree ALU tripods are savage and only £120. 👌🏼
