24.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS III Sensor, Internal UHD 4K Video, 325-Point Intelligent Hybrid AF System
Fujinon 16-55 f2.8 is my all-around lens. I can do, basically, all my work with this lens. Usually I don’t need shallow depth of field, so this lens gives me great options to do variations during my shoot.
ELB 400 Quadra Pack with Li-Ion Battery, 424Ws, 6.9-Stop Power Range
Elinchrom ELB400 flashes. I do lot of location photography, so I need to have good travel gear. These flashes have enough power and features to get me going in every kind of photoshoot. I usually use two separate generator units.
I use an old Kata Bag that can fit most of my stuff. On trips, I use an even older National Geographic shoulder bag, with that fitting retro look.
I use gels, so orange and blue (CTO / CTB) gels go wherever I go.
