My Fuji Gear

For those of you wondering what my kit bag looks like and what kind of gear I'm using for work then you are in the right place. This setup is my usual Fuji Gear for weddings and almost anything else I do, there are links to blogs about individual pieces of gear and a bit of why I've chosen this setup, enjoy.

This kit is what I started using at the beginning of my 2017 season, before that I was on the same lenses but on XE2 bodies, which were great and more than capable, but I wanted to make my job easier and open up the option of video and so the XT2 came on the scene. So far I have found this kit the fastest and most responsive setup I've ever had, and it makes taking the pictures I want to take easier for me.

2 XT-2 Bodies - XT-2 Review. Fantastic, fast cameras, duel SD card slots is a great feature, I'll shoot any event on two 64gb cards on backup mode and compressed RAW. Flip out screen is incredibly useful, focus is fast. Video is something I've venturing into so I'll be posting more reviews of the video capabilities soon.

16mm 1.4 - 16mm 1.4 Review. Just a stunning lens, great out of focus backgrounds, wide enough for my needs. Weather sealing is great with the XT-2's and that clutch focus is fantastic.

23mm 1.4 - 23mm 1.4 Review. A solid all round lens, my go to focal length for most things. I'd be happy to shoot a full day on just this lens.

56mm 1.2 -  56mm 1.2 Review. When I do need a bit of reach this lens is just great, fantastic in low light, great subject separation, again an all round fantastic lens, sometimes a little slow to focus in low light, but then it's a massive bit of glass.

Nissin i40 Flash - Nissin i40 Flash Review. Small flash unit, great for me as I don't use flash much at all, only for dancing. It's nice and quick to cycle and the size/weight fits well with the fuji form factor.

Spider Holster - Slight upgrade from the Black Widow Holster, this one clips to the belt without having to tread it through, and has a lock function so I can get the camera without having to hold the lever down. Great accessory for having two cameras.

Peak Design strap - Strap for my main camera [usually the 23mm] it's super comfy, doesn't cut into my neck and adjusts very quickly.

Peak Design Sling bag
[Not in the photo]  - The best bag I've ever had, it fits on your back and keeps everything else out of the way while being very quick and easy to access everything, I keep spare batteries, the 16mm lens, flash and a few other bits in here.
