As for my “photographic kit”, I always stick to one principle: common sense always pays off. Every landscape photographer needs reliable, professional and complete equipment to make the most of his camera when trotting round the globe. There is no one particular gear for shooting either landscape or street photos. We need to pay a close attention to highly recommended and specified gear for our photographic experiences. When going through Scandinavian fjords I always make a use of my landscape photography kit:
Body: I’m a “Canon shooter”. I find a full frame Canon EOS 5D Mark III very useful and highly recommendable when shooting nature and landscape. This upgraded body version of the 5D Mark II is made of magnesium with an improved sensor (36 x 24mm), ISO sensitivity range 100 to 25,600, exposure time from 1/8000 to 30 sec, 61 autofocus points and a waterproof case that makes this equipment a powerful tool in landscape photography.
Lens: I use EF 16-35mm f / 2.8 L II USM. This is a wide angle lens with EF mount, reliable for landscape photography. I also take the lens cover and Canon case. I also use the Sony E 16-50mm f / 3.5-5.6 PZ OSS lens but with another body than Canon 5D Mark III. full frame compatible lens with wide-angle lenses allows for low-focal shots (low figures). In addition, the body gives you the option of fastening lenses with mount type: Canon EF, which is my favorite, because it attaches a wide-angle lens Canon 16-35 mm or Canon 24-77 mm universal lens – two brilliant optical tools dotted under the landscape. In addition, the high resolution 22.0MP sensor captures a great deal of detail and allows for large format printing.
Packaging for filters and filters : I use a set of Lee ND ilters and resin grad filters of the same brand. Specification: ND Little Stopper (6 stops) + Bigg Stopper (10 stops) and optically corrected resin filter 0.9 Medium Grad. The filters storage boxes are made of tin containers. The gradation filter protects the extra security layer because Lee’s case is not the most reliable. Filter System base on the Lee system with a foundation kit holder that tolerates 100 mm rectangular filters for my wide-angle ring for 82 mm.
Large photo backpack. I have a 26 l EVOC photo backpack. The small, dished case for the camera itself (5D Mark III + 16-35 mm) unfortunately did not pass the exam, so I decided on a 26 l EVOC photo backpack. I do not belong to the cheapest, but fully able to meet my expectations as a photographer. It has a large chamber for professional DSLR camera, 3-4 lenses, flash, 15 “laptop and personal items, SD card pockets and photo filters. x 52 x 17 cm. The backpack comes with a rain cover for the backpack.
Snorkel for triggering shutter release: I use the Photolex interval hose that both releases the shutter release for single shots as well as works in timelapse mode. I’m taking spare sticks for him 4-6.
Accumulators + Battery Charger+ addictional stuff: My main battery for the 5D Mark III is the LP-E6. I have 3 Newell alternatives, which do not show deviations from the original. Compact Sony alpha 5000 and go pro black edition I take are both models used mainly for filming. In situations where I do not want to put a SLR camera on a weather resistance test, I use it pro and go pro black edition.
Tripod: I have a Velbon tripod with a 50 cm slide. In the future, however, I would like to switch to Manfrotto because Velbon does not quite meet my expectations. It’s a rather simple tripod. Its legs are joined so that it can not be fully extended and placed on a very low ceiling.
Tablet: It serves as a tool for ripping pictures, evaluating their quality, and storing them. For data storage, I use mainly high speed SD cards: 1 32 GB Samsung card, 3 32 GB Scan disk.
Cleaning Equipment: Lens wipes, brushes, cotton swabs, lens cleaning fluid and pear. This is especially important when shooting waterfalls because the amount of water vapor in the air can prevent a sharp shot. Well invest in dedicated lenses for photographic lenses. The latest additions are the tulip: sunscreen lens cover (preventing the appearance of blurry stains on photos (so-called flare, blik) and black tape and viewfinder cap (a reliable kit for long exposure time limiting the optical phenomenon of the so-called blik).
Photo Gloves: These gloves allow you to operate your camera and smartphone in less favorable weather conditions.
