A long list of the cameras lenses and gear I use regularly when traveling or shooting around town.
Current Camera Kit
Sony A7rII – 42mp landscape photography beast. I love the image quality this camera puts out and use it mostly for my landscapes. It’s a great camera but its far from perfect.
Fujifilm X-T2 -A legend. This is one of the best cameras ever made. I use this camera for everything including landscapes. It’s with me all the time no matter what.
Fujifilm X-Pro 2 – A very fun street photography camera. When you don’t want to draw too much attention or intimidate the scene around you with a massive camera and lens. It is however a conversation starter.
Fujifilm X100T – An extremely fun run and gun camera. Small enough to always be in my bag. I take it with me for casual shooting.
Current Lenses I Regularly Used
Voigtlander 15mm f4.5 III – Great ultra-wide full frame lens with excellent sharpness and micro-contrast. However, I mostly use this on my X-T2.
Fujifilm 14mm f2.8 – A very nice ultra-wide lens. Produces a very clean image, sharp all around. Great for landscape photography.
Fujifilm 16mm f1.7 – One of Fujifilm’s best lenses in terms of bang for the buck. Very good image and build quality. However, I’m not a huge fan of the soap-bubble bokeh. It’s a great lens for landscape photography or even casual shooting while traveling.
Fujifilm 23mm f1.4 – One of my favorite lenses by Fujifilm. I love everything about this lens. The quality is great, the character of the image is great and it’s fast. This is my most used lens.
Fujifilm 27mm f2.8 – This a great lens on the X-Pro 2. It’s a pancake lens so it’s very small and light. Great for street photography with a very natural looking field of view.
Voigtlander 35mm f1.7 – I have this lens in the Leica-M mount so I use it on my Sony A7rII and my X-T2. It’s one of my favorite lenses in terms of build quality and image rendering. It just produces the most beautiful lenses.
Fujifilm 35mm f2 – A nice lens in terms of build quality and general image quality but it has some crazy swirling bokeh. I use this lens when I want a fast autofocusing and reliable lens I don’t have to worry about that will get the job done.
Sony 35mm f2.8 Sonar T* FE Zeiss – A nice prime for the Sony E-Mount. This lens has great sharpness and micro-contrast, but that’s about it. The selling feature is it’s small and light.
Canon 40mm f2.8 – A fun lens you can literally throw in your pocket. Very nice when you don’t want to bring a lot of attention to yourself. I still shoot with Canon sometimes and when I do, this is my go-to lens.
Sony 50mm f1.8 – A very capable fifty for the Sony E-Mount. It’s a very light lens and not too big. Image quality is all around good. This lens lives on my Sony A7rII when I’m not shooting landscapes.
Industar 50mm f3.5 – A great vintage pancake lens. I use this mostly on my X-T2 or X-Pro 2. It’s very sharp and has great micro-contrast. All around a fun lens.
Fujifilm 56mm f1.2 – A great portrait lens. This is also one of my favorite lenses. Beautiful bokeh, very good image quality when wide open and all around great performance.
Helios 58mm 4M, 44-2, 44-4, 44-7 – Fairly popular Helios lenses. I love the 44-4 and the 44-7. I don’t really like the other models as they don’t produce good results wide open, however, they do have some interesting swirling bokeh.
Fujifilm 60mm f2.4 – A fantastic general purpose lens. It lacks some of the magic the 56mm f1.2 has, but makes up for it with its macro capabilities. It’s a very fun lens that can be used in just about any situation.
Sony 16-35mm f4 – An amazing ultra-wide zoom by Sony. This is my primary lens I use for most of my landscape photos when I shoot on the Sony.
Canon 70-200mm f2.8L IS II – Very sharp and vibrant lens. Great for travel, landscapes and getting in real close.
Canon Speed Light 550 EXII – Great Flash, powerful and durable.
Phottix Strato II Wireless Flash Trigger – Best bang for the buck when it comes to flash triggers.
Lowepro 250 Backpack – I’ve had this for years. It’s great for holding all my gear and a few lenses.
Lowepro Vertex 200 AW Backpack – An all weather backpack. I use this when traveling to bring all my gear.
Slik Pro Tripod – It’s small and light kind of crappy tripod, but works fine for most travel and landscape situations. It’s my beater tripod.
Mefoto Globetrotter Carbon Fiber Tripod – Amazing tripod for the price. I love it. This is my main tripod.
Generic Trigger Remote – Nice for those long exposures or timelapse.
