Kit list

Recommended Posts

Canon 1DX II arrived today.

This one is a loaner from Canon CPS but my own arrives Weds/ Thurs and then we swap. 

Hells bells....it's awesome! Will try to find time to post an image or two over the weekend.

We haven't quite given up on film at our house, although I'll admit that most of these spend most of their time as shelf queens.  They do get used occasionally, though23413683681_5d553b3d23_b.jpgshelfies1 120315 by Mark Hardy, on Flickr

My (adult) son is the real photographer in the family -- although his day job is as a maths professor in Virginia :)  One may see some of his (camera) work, if one is suitably interested, at http://icouldbeahero.blogspot.com

If anyone's interested in his mathematics, let me know & I can post some links for that, too ;)

It's been a long time since I dropped by the Wam and the photo forum  since I kind of lost my mojo photography wise a couple of years ago when I broke my X-T1. Life and work has got in the way since and some kit (mainly Fuji lenses) were sold and the system consolidated (at one time I was making a bid to own all the Fuji glass) but lately I've been thinking of getting my eye in again as a bit of a stress relief hobby so watch this space.

Anyway I've just dug out the kit bags to see what I have left and for the record the kit list looks like:

Nikon system: mainly used for moving children / sports but seemed to have developed a bit after my XT-1 died.

D750 with 24-120 f/4 G, 50 f/1.8 G, 20 f/1.8G, 105/2.8 macro plus a Tamron 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD

Yongnuo YN622N-TX wireless full TTL flash commander trigger, 3x YN622N wireless transceiver triggers & 3x YN568EX (N) TTL high speed sync flashes

Fujifilm system: I had a terrible obsession with Fuji as I lived in Japan at the time all this stuff was being released. It helped that the Yen was on it's arse at the time too ;-)

X100 compact with TCL-X100 and WCL-X100 primes (this is the most used kit),

X-T1+VG-XT1, X-Pro 1 & X-M1 bodies

XF10-24/4, 16-55/2.8 & 50-140/2.8 zooms (I also had the 18-55/2.8-4, 18-135/3.5-5.6 & 55-200/3.5-4.8 in the past)

23/1.4, 35/1.4, 56/1.2 & 60/2.4 primes ( I did also previously have the 14/2.8, 18/2 & 27/2.8 before too)

Fuji accessories: EF-42 & EF-X20 flashes, RR-90 remote release & MIC-ST1 external mic, Instax Share SP-1 printerXM-FL body cap/x-focus/soft focus filter lens, MCEX-11 & 16 macro extension tubes

Olympus: for holidays/pool/snorkelling shots which I've had for years

TG-1 Tough compact, PT-053 underwater housing & FCON-T01 Fisheye converter

 

I'll probably lose the X-M1 now as it's long been redundant for me really and get an X-T1 again [Edit XT-1 now back in the bag] as I really bonded with that camera and it worked brilliantly with the grip and the 2.8 zooms. I may also upgrade the X100 to a later version, mostly out of curiosity i suppose as I still love the IQ of the little X100.

Bought this today, Nikon Z6 and FTZ mount adapter, plus a 70-200 f/2.8. On a promotion deal at Park Cameras, where I received excellent service. 

I had a Sony A7RII that I used with Leica M and R lenses, bought for £700, trashed and sold for £400. Wanted a mirrorless to share with my son, to use M lenses and a longish lens with good low light capability, for landscape and things that move fast. First zoom or auto-focus lens I've used in over 10 years, being happily Leica M and Q. 

The body is very clever indeed, although I've little idea about how it works, but a lot of it is touch screen enabled.

I looked at an A7RIII. The menu system was terrible, it's now diabiolical. The demo unit was in silent mode, I asked the sales manager to turn the shutter sound back on and 5 minutes later he still hadn't found it. Could only do it by resetting the camera to factory default. That was the end of Sony, plus I don't like the half-white lenses, very ugly.

Should be a good combo that - the video is supposed to be very good if that matters to you. Be interested to get your views on the AF for faster moving things, I’ve stuck with DSLR Nikons because I’m not convinced the mirrorless are quite there yet. Sony AF clearly is, as @unintended1 demonstrates in the Twitter thread hereabouts, but they’re not my cup-of-tea (technical term).
