Photography Gear


I agree to everybody else. The gear a photographer is using is irrelevant. A good photo is almost never limited by poor gear. Some of my best photos are from some of my worst cameras.


Nevertheless, a camera is an artist's tool and like any other such tool, it ideally gets out of the photographer's mind. I do now understand that a camera the photographer tends to think about is a bad camera. The ideal one blends into the flow of shooting and makes the artist trust his tool. If you see a photographer constantly chimping at his camera's rear LCD then he or his camera are not yet quite up to the task.


As I do write a few articles about camera technology, I thought I'd share the equipment I use. For cameras and lenses it is:
