CAMERA

I made the switch from Canon to Sony in 2014 with the purchase of their A7r Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera. Initially I used an adaptor to allow me to continue to use my existing Canon lenses however, by and large, I have now moved entirely to native FE lenses. The A7r and now A7RII produce excellent results and I am generally happy with my experience of both camera’s.

LENSES

The camera lens is the heart and soul of the capture process, as far as I am concerned. When asked I will always recommend a person spend money on a lens over a camera body as that is where the real improvements can often lie. My core set of lenses are all primes predominately from Zeiss‘s stellar Loxia line up, along with Sony‘s brilliant 90mm Macro.

SUPPORT

Given the fact I shoot about 85% of my images from a Tripod, with many of them being multi-minute exposures, a stable platform is essential. I have used several manufacturers legs and heads over the years, and found them all lacking in some respect. That changed however when in 2014, I purchased a set of legs and a ballhead from Really Right Stuff, upon the recommendation of several photographers I respect. I have not looked back since then; RRS make exceptional equipment where engineering and quality are second to none.

FILTERS

Filters are an integral part of my landscape photography. Over the years I have built up a wide selection of both Neutral Density, and Graduated Neutral Density Filters to help me realise the final photograph I have visualised. LEE Filters is my preferred manufacture, offering consistent quality.

BAGS

While having zero impact on the final photograph, what you use to carry your equipment is an important consideration. The bag needs to ensure your expensive equipment is kept safe (and dry) and is also comfortable to carry. I’ve been using F-stop Gear bags for many years, and continue to be very happy with them. The flexible configuration options afforded through their novel Internal Camera Units is extremely useful.
