I currently use the following equipment:
- Nikon D750, 24 megapixel full-frame DSLR with very impressive noise performance, especially under low light conditions. Before I switched to full-frame I used a Sony Alpha 65 (APS-C sensor).
- Nikon D7100, 24 megapixel APS-C DSLR as my second camera.
- Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm 1:4G ED, wide angle lens for landscapes and architecture.
- Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm 1:2.8G ED, my “usually-on” lens.
- Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm 1:1.8G, for portraits and in situations with very low light.
- Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-300mm 1:4.5-5.6G, tele lens for events and animal photography. You actually want the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200 mm, 1:2.8E FL ED VR instead, but I don’t shoot with tele lenses very often and the 2.4 kilos of the 70-200mm lens were a bit too much for my luggage…
- Haida Slim ProII MC ND3.0 1000x 77mm neutral density filter
I also use the following accessories:
- Rollei Compact Traveller No. 1 tripod
- NEEWER CN-160 LED lamp
- TOP-MAX EN-EL15 spare batteries
- Sandisk Extreme PRO UHS-3 64 GB memory cards. The D750 stores RAW files about ~30 MB in size, and without fast memory cards you run into trouble very fast when shooting at 6.5 frames per second.
- Lowepro Flipside AW 500 backpack. Fits all of my photo equipment plus clothes for four days into eight to nine kilos, passing as hand luggage with all airlines. I usually no longer bring checked luggage when I’m on the road for less than a week.
- ASUS Zenbook UX3430UQ, light 14″ laptop with 100% sRGB coverage, fast processor and up to 15 hours of battery life.
- BenQ BL2711U, 27″ 4K UHD display with 100% sRGB coverage
- darktable. Yes, I could use Adobe Lightroom, but they’ve had it with me due to their stupid Creative Cloud and their subscription model. darktable does the same job (minus the Dehaze module…) and does it faster. Lightroom gets quite slow with the huge RAW files the D750 writes creates, even on a fast system.
