What is in my camera bag

My camera bag has changed a lot this year.

This year I decided that I needed to update my camera kit. Being open-minded, I read many reviews covering the makes of cameras that I thought would be ideal for my style and workload.

The main runners were of course Nikon as I have used Nikon for the past twenty years, I also looked at Canon and Sony.

As cameras have evolved so much in the last few years one of the things that I was drawn to was the mirrorless cameras. Mirrorless cameras have been out for a few years and they are lighter and a lot less clunky (if that is even a word).

After reading reviews and watching comparison videos on YouTube I thought that for what my needs are.

The Sony Alpha A7R IVA was going to be the camera for me.

If you are looking for a new camera please don’t take my word for it… Please do your own research.  The Sony Alpha series may not be the camera for you.

To go with my new Sony Alpha A7R IVA camera body and for the photography that I do, weddings, pets and commercial photography, I choose the Sony FE 24-70mm f2.8 GM and FE 70-200m f2.8 GM OSS II.

My mobile studio is all Godox so works well with my new Sony camera system. All that I had to buy to enable me to work my lighting was a new trigger for the Sony camera as the ones that I have are Nikon.

Learning a new camera system was a big learning curve.  I have always worked with two cameras, as I don’t like to change lenses while working.

I have one camera set up with the 24-70mm lens and the other camera set up with the 70-200mm lens.

To balance the weight of heavy professional cameras I have them on the Multi-Camera strap by Hold Fast they have a great selection of camera gear.

How fabulous is the Black Bridle Leather dual camera harness for when working with two cameras and when work requires me to carry one and have the other as a backup in my bag?

As my single camera strap that I went for is the Wrist Strap also in the Black Bridle Leather.

In the Autumn I will be starting my new personal project.  For this, I will need a remote commander/shutter release for my Sony.  I like to keep all of my camera equipment that same make.

I have just purchased the Sony RMT-P1BT Professional Bluetooth Wireless Remote Commander. I will update this Blog with a review once it arrives and I have used it for a week or two.

In my galleries, you will see my work taken on both the Nikon and the Sony cameras.
