I currently use the following equipment:
- Nikon D850, 45,7 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 D750, second 24 megapixel DSLR body.
- Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm 1:4G ED, my “usually-on” lens.
- Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm 1:2,8G ED VR II tele zoom lens for events and nature photography. I used the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-300mm 1:4.5-5.6G first, which is much lighter and much more travel-friendly.
- Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm 1:2.8G ED, good for concerts and other events.
- Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm 1:1.8G and Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 85 mm 1:1,8G, for portraits and in situations with very low light.
- Haida Slim ProII MC ND3.0 1000x 77mm neutral density filter
I also use the following accessories:
- Two Sun-Sniper-Strap The Pro-II Steel & Bear camera straps
- Rollei Compact Traveller No. 1 tripod.
- Yongnuo YN685 flash. The D850 doesn’t have a built-in flash.
- 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 in about ten kilos, therefore still passing as hand luggage with most airlines. I usually no longer have 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 and does it faster. Lightroom gets quite slow with the huge RAW files the D850 creates, even on a fast system.
