Kit bag

“Nice photo – what kind of camera do you have?”


Every self respecting photo geek has a desire to know what the other guy/girl is packing in their kit bag. A couple of caveats: This is what I use – not a set of recommendations for you. It seems like a lot of gear, but you build a system over time, buy second-hand where possible and pay for new gear by selling the old. For reviews of some of the cameras I’ve tried or owned, see my reviews page.
