Camera gear inventory and review

I get asked a lot about what gear I carry for my photos.

What I carry varies widely depending on what I’m going to be shooting, but here’s my complete list for when I pack the kitchen sink.

Camera bodies

  • Canon EOS 6D 20.2 MP CMOS DSLR: Outstanding full-frame SLR, for a significant amount less than the 5D mk III. If you don’t need the additional autofocus points and flash features, this is a camera you should consider.
  • GoPro HERO3: Black Edition: Not the latest in the line, but a solid (after firmware updates) action camera with wifi capabilities.
  • Canon EOS Rebel T3i 18 MP CMOS DSLR: An earlier, crop-sensor model. Uses EF-S lenses as well as standard EF mount. Significantly worse light sensitivity vs the 6D, but a lightweight shooter when you need something simple.



You’ll notice I don’t own a speedlight, reflectors, etc, etc. It’s a debatable choice, and one that occasionally I regret, but I really prefer to shoot natural/available light.
