What gear do you have?
 
I've seen plenty of threads about what gun gear people have but didn't see one in here about what photography gear you have. I've been playing around with photography for a few years now and have accumulated a decent collection but was wondering what others have. To get us started here's a list of my current gear:

-Nikon D80
-Nikon D40x (backup)
-Nikkor AF-S 35mm f/1.8G
-Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.8D
-Nikkor 85mm f/1.4
-Nikkor 180mm f/2.8
-Nikkor AF 300mm f/4 ED
-Nikkor 500mm f/8 reflex (Nippon Kogaku model)
-Tamron 10-24mm DiII f/3.5-4.5
-Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8
-Nikkor AF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6GII
-Nikon SB600 speedlight
-ProMaster Extension tube set (12/24/36)
-Neewer 900w 300DI Strobe Kit (w/soft boxes, umbrellas, barn doors, assorted gels, etc)
-10x10 Studio backdrop stand with various 10x12 muslins
-Giottos MM9750 Monopod
-Sunpak 7500TM Tripod
-Velbon CX-470 Deluxe Tripod
-Generic MX-1000 Tripod
-Naneu U120n bag

I also have various filters and accessories but didn't feel the need to list those.

So what do you have?

One Canon SX1 camera, one UV filter (used as a protective glass), one old tripod. :wavey:

D3200 with 18-55vr kit lens, 35mm 1.8 and a SB700. Manfrotto tripod and a few other goodies. I kind of wished I'd stepped up to a D7000 for a few features but the D3200 takes pretty phenomenal photos, also just got Lightroom 4 to help manage the pics.

Been shooting several years, too, and have settled on a Canon 5D Mark II, with a 50D as a backup.
Canon 70-200 f2.8L, Tamron 28-75 f2.8, stock lens, Canon 28-135 4.5-5.6 kit lens, Canon Speed Light 580 EX II, Pocket Wizards, Sekonik light meter, couple tripods, monopod, portable studio lighting set up with backgrounds.
Lots of props left over from days working with stuffed animal business with Classy Wrap.
Best wife/assistant you can imagine.

:rofl::supergrin:

I am looking to get back into photography and figure to start, I just want to get an inexpensive body and said as much to my wife. (cheap as I can get and use my manual focus Nikkor lenses)

Put as I look at equipment, I almost found myself bidding on several lenses... I need to get another PC (perspective control) lens or two, and... and... crap I don't even have a digital Nikon body yet!

"Don't worry honey, just one inexpensive body so I can use my old lenses..." :supergrin:

Fortunately most lenses look pretty similar to the uninitiated....

Everyday photos Samsung Galaxy S3
Point n shot older Cannon SD1000 replaced my stolen Nikon point n shoot.
DSLR Nikon D90? I dont remember the number but it replaced my old D70.
35mm Nikon film type idk the model.
Nikon F3 1980s built like a tank and can woop any old school 35mm film camera out there. This is my favorite to shoot portraits, still life, landscapes, etc artistic style. There is a trend with me, the Cannon was a umm step child.

I have the Manfroto monopod. It is ok. I know others with the tripod, it is ok, but I don't like their mounts.

I went with the Carbon 6x Gitzo for the tripod. It is great for a packable tripod, but I probably should get something bigger if I get any larger lenses.

I really like my Really Right Stuff BH-55 ball head. I will recommend it.

I found the manfrotto was good enough to start with but now with bigger gear its really lacking.

Looking at a Gitzo GT5542LS, figure it should get the job done.

I Liked the RRS tripods as well but availability here was an issue :(

I couldn't find anything locally. So I took advice from people I trusted on Nikon Cafe. Then bought everything online. For the most part I am happy.

IMHO, that tripod is overkill unless you plan on setting up in one location for a long time or shoot. That is just not my thing.

I would/will get another Gitzo. The only issues I see with mine is that the feet come off. So I put a little paint on the threads and now the feet do not come off except when I want them to. I will also suggest adding some padding to the legs. Then again, I am hard on my gear.

Morgo 08-02-2013 22:58

I looked at other tripods that might be adequate but I alot just don't cut it to be used with the big 400 lens. It will most likely solely be used with my Canon 400 2.8 IS and full size body plus grip so there is really already too much weight to be carrying that setup around, as its my event setup in anycase it will only be setup in one place in most cases.

I'll still use my Manfrotto for lighter lens setups when I need walk to locations etc

Love my 3 legged thing tripod.....Whats even better is I won it for liking them on FB

It sounds like you have thought it through. You are using your gear differently than I use mine. I keep thinking I need to hire a sherpa or cut my gear weight.

I'm hearing you on the gear, I generally fill the boot of the car pretty well :)
