My Current Gear
Gear is a funny thing. People say "gear doesn't matter"...then ask what gear I use to make photos and videos. To satisfy that curiosity, here's a list of what I'm using currently:
Main photography camera: Nikon Z6
I bought the Z6 to replace my trusty Pentax K3ii...which died after being exposed to torrential rains. I had wanted to move to full-frame for some time and the Z6 is a good all-rounder, with excellent low-light performance, amazing image quality and solid video performance.
Main video camera: Canon M50
The M50 was my first video camera. It has served me faithfully for a few years now and shows no signs of stopping. It's capable of taking stills, but I've only ever used it for video. Love its autofocus capabilities.
Action/travel camera: GoPro HERO8 Black
A later video addition. The GoPro actually works better for travel videos than the M50 or Z6 because it is so small, light and can be completely immersed. I'm not a fan of the still images it produces, but who uses a GoPro for stills?
Wide-angle zoom lens: Nikkor 14-30mm f/4 S
Normal zoom lens: Nikkor 24-70mm f/4 S
Telephoto zoom lens: Sigma 150-600mm f/5.6-6/3 DG OS HSM Contemporary
Camera Pack: Atlas Athlete
Yes, Atlas packs are not cheap, especially when you import them to Canada. But this is easily the best camera backpack I have ever owned, well built, plenty of protected space for cameras and lenses and ample remaining space for other gear, clothing, food, water, etc. Highly recommended.
