My Weapons Of Choice

Posted: August 4, 2011 in Yours Truly

Nikon For The Win!!

  • Nikon D700  Originally an Olympus shooter but with all the commotion about wether or not the E-5 was going to be their final SLR I decided to jump ship while my gear still held a little value. Was the best move i ever made. the ISO capabilities and the auto bracketing where the main pulling points.
  • AF-S Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED  My main go to lens when shooting Urban Exploration. It is super wide and super sharp across the whole of the frame.
  • AF Fisheye-Nikkor 16mm f/2.8D  A real fun lens to shoot with and really comes into its own when even the 14-24mm is not wide enough 
  • AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D  Everybody should own a 50mm, awesome in low light and super sharp.
  • Manfrotto 055XPROB Pro Tripod (Black) I was always under the impression a tripod was going to be the last thing I ever spent any real money on – how wrong was I? If you shoot low light / Long exposures or HDr then a tripod is essential. I used a cheap old bog standard tripod for at least a year laughing at the people who spent hundreds on theirs, It was only when i actually used one that I was  blown away by the build and complexity of these heavyweights. Seriously, if you haven’t already then upgrade your tripod!!!!!
  • Compact Ball Head with RC2 Rapid Connect System
  • Light Duty Grip Ball Head
  • Basic Pan Tilt Head with Quick Lock
