A quick overview of my gear

    Often people ask me what gear I use. Choosing a camera (and system) is a very personal choice. What do you need, what do you like, how are the ergonomics? I’ll give you a quick overview of my gear in this post.

    After being with Canon for a long time I stepped into the Fujifilm ecosystem in 2015. I was tired hauling around my hefty Canon DSLR and lenses. Choosing for Fuji APS-C system mend lighter body and lenses. I really like the body style and the image quality of the Fuji system.

    Camera and lenses

    Fujifilm X-T4 I really love this camera, especially the ability to set the shutter speed, aperture and ISO with physical dials. And I love it retro looks. I recently switched to the X-T4, after very satisfying use of the X-T1 for a couple of years.

    Fujinon XF 10-24mm f4.0 R OIS This wide angle lens is the replacement for my Samyang 12 mm F2. I liked to have the ease of use of autofocus and a little bit wider view. It’s a couple of stops slower then the Samyang, but I love the images coming out of it.

    Fujinon XF 18-55mm f2.8-4 R LM OIS The standard “kit-lens”. Really known for its high build quality, image quality and versatility. Although I rather use the 23mm as a walk-a-round lens, I still use this one occasionally.

    Fujinon XF 50-140mm f2.8 R LM OIS WR Great range. This longer focal range comes with a weight though, my heaviest lens.

    Fujinon XF 16mm f1.4 R WR Fast versatile prime, which has a well deserved “Legend” status within the Fuji community.

    Fujinon XF 23mm f1.4 R Very fast prime, which creates beautiful crisp images and some very nice bokeh!

    Fujinon XF 56mm f1.2 R Another great prime build by Fuji. Ideal for portraits and street photography.

    Bags and cases

    Shimoda Action X30

    My large back pack for longer walks and traveling is the Shimoda Design Action X30. A very high quality back pack. It’s a comfortable & spacious bag with room for the body and a couple of lenses. Small but expendable daypack on the top for a small rain jacket and some food & drinks.

    Lowepro Nova 200 AW Main storage and transport bag for flashes, chargers, remote triggers and batteries.

    B&W Outdoor Cases Type 4000 Acts as main storage for the camera body and lenses. It is my “throw it in the back of the car” case.

    Accessories

    I’m a big fan on Peak Design products. I realIy like the quick anchors that come with their straps. This makes their system very versatile and it’s easily to switch the strap matching my needs. I use the slide, slide lite and the cuff.

    When I switched to the Fuji X system there weren’t any flashes available, but soon Godox stept into this gap. With the X-Pro trigger and the affordable TT600 speedlites it’s a very easy to use off camera flash system. Beside the TT600’s I use a TT350F as on camera speedlight.

    When we talk about filters is use a collection of circular polarizers from Hoya in different sizes and the Lee Big Stopper, a 10-stops ND filter. I don’t use them very often to be honest. Should use them more often thoug.

    I use multiple smaller and larger non-branded tripods. They are on the list to be upgraded. I still have not found the ideal tripod. I often use a Manfrotto table top tripod on holiday travels
