my kit(s)

I have settled on Fuji as my camera brand of choice and I currently sport two kits:

walkabout kit

My “walkabout kit” (left image above) is what I use every day. It consists of the following equipment:

  • Fujifilm X-T5
  • Sigma 16mm f/1.4 DC DN
  • Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC DN
  • Sigma 56mm f/1.4 DC DN
  • Godox TT350F Speedlight (not pictured)

I usually decide on one lens for the day and pop the camera, lens and flash in my trusty Copper River Vintage Safari 10″ Satchel bag. The kit is light enough that I can haul it around with me all day long and not send me to the chiropractor. This kit is used for short trips as well.

travel kit

My ‘travel kit” (right image above) is what I use when I go on long trips and vacations. It is bigger and heavier but is a lot more flexible in terms of lenses and such. It is also the kit I use for occasional studio work.

  • Fujifilm X-H2
  • Fujifilm VG-XH
  • Fujifilm XF 10-24mm f/4 WR
  • Fujifilm XF 16-80mm f/4 OIS WR
  • Fujifilm XF 18mm f/1.4 WR
  • Godox V1F Speedlight (not pictured)

This big, beefy kit is packed into a Tenba Roadie Backpack 22L along with a 14″ Lenovo Flex4 laptop and all of the accessories needed for extended time away from home.
