It's about time I had a re-vamp of the 'My Gear' blog on the website, seeing as over the last year I've gone into a pure Fuji X system of X100, XE1 and XE2 plus lenses, it's time for one of those awesome shots of lots of lovely looking gear laid out over a wooden background.
If you are interested in seeing what I used to shoot then head to my original gear.
Coming from a DSLR system to Fuji has been a great journey and one which has allowed me to expand creatively and focus on a system that brings me great joy to use and to talk about, I now feel my kit is 'complete' and I'm happy to take on any assignment with the above. I'd still like to try the 56mm and see how I get on with that but whats here is so enjoyable and can produce incredible images.
So far I've done weddings, head shots, events, editorial work, landscapes and much more with this equipment and can say with some certainty that I'm very very happy with the results.
Fuji X100 - Great stealth camera, a street photographers dream, perfect for travel.
Fuji X-E1 - Fantastic Quality, super cheap, light and awesome.
Fuji X-E2 - Faster than the X-E1, better focus, better viewfinder.
18mm, 35mm and 60mm lenses [The Fuji Trinity] - A very nice set of lenses and a capable kit of many assignments and subjects, the 35 is by far my favourite lens of the three.
8mm Samyang + 85mm Samyang - Nice offerings from Samyang, the fisheye is great for parties and distorted shots, the 85 is a fantastic low light and portrait lens.
28mm, 50mm, 100mm and 200mm Olympus Lenses - Crazy cheap way of getting good glass, these lenses fill up a few gaps in the kit, mainly for telephoto use.
Yongnuo 560ii's + Elinchrom D-lite RX1 - When I do use artificial light the Yongnuo's are awesome on camera and bounced, the Elinchrom is fantastic for studio work.
iPad + SD reader - On the road editing with the VSCOcam app.
Thinktank Retrospective 5 bag - Fits most of my main gear, nice and small and discreet.
There are a few other bits such as the trigger trap mobile trigger which is great for time-lapse and neat ways of firing the camera, lots of extra batteries and a few filters, I prefer the size and easy of the screw on filters for grads, much easier than slot in types but not as versatile.
Next on the wish list is to upgrade the X-E1 to the X-E2 and maybe get the 56mm, but who knows, the rumoured 90mm that is coming out next year will be of great interest to me, I'm also tempted by the XP70 action cam from Fuji as a fun waterproof tool.
Thats all for now and the gear, let me sign off by saying thank you for reading the blog, it always makes me smile to see how many people come and see what I'm up to, and as a reward here is a copious amount of Fuji gear porn;
