I had written this looooong post about what I currently have in my camera bag, and had planned to publish it a couple of days ago after having shot the images. To my great disappointment, the draft is nowhere to be found. So I’m going to give you the shorter version, and maybe I’ll film a presentation of my stuff some day later.
Canon EOS 7D is the camera body I’ve been using the last four years. I’m currently in the market for an upgrade, but have to get some more cash saved up before I can go get me a Canon EOS 5D mark IV. I’m keeping the 7D as a second body as I love it to much to part with it.
Canon 40 mm f2.8 is a nice pancake-lense that I don’t use as much as it deserves. But I have used it for the images below.
Canon 50 mm f1.4 is by far my favourite lense. I use it for street, portraits and all kinds of candid shots.
Canon 24-105 mm f4 is my newest purchase. I use it for landscapes, product and lifestyle. It’s really versatile, and even though it is a bit heavy, it has become my “kit lense” and sits on my camera most of the time.
Canon 70-200 mm f4 is a lense that I had been wanting ever since I first started photography. I use it for intimate landscapes, details and portraits. It’s really light and therefore often comes along even though I’m not sure if I’m going to use it.
I also have a Sigma 17-70 mm that I use for macro shots, and that used to be my go to lense for everything before I got the 24-105 mm. For landscapes I use a Manfrotto tripod with a ballhead. Weighs a ton, but is sturdy and reliable. I also have a remote, a shutter-release, filters and some daylight lamps that I use often. For product photography I have a light tent, and for whenever I’m not up for carrying a heavy tripod I have a Joby SLR Zoom Tripod with ballhead.
I carry my gear in a MindShift Gear 180 Rotation Horizon, and that is just a magnificent bag when you want to be able to hike and get your gear out fast. Really recommend it!
Ok guys, I hope you liked this short overview of what I currently have in my camera bag! I really wanted to do a more in debt presentation, telling you a bit about why I choose the gear I choose, and how I use the different stuff. But I’m off to Oslo for some photography inspiration in a short while, so I’ve got to pack my bag and catch the train. Wishing you all the very best of weekends, and will be back soon!
