Here are the cameras and lenses I’ll be taking on the road trip –
Sony a7s – full frame
Sony 70-200mm f4
Zeiss 16-35mm f4
Zeiss 24-70mm f4
Leica 18mm f3.8
D700 – full frame
Nikkor 16-35mm f4
Nikkor 24mm f1.4
Nikkor 50mm f1.4
Nikkor 85mm f1.8
Fujifilm X-E-2 – APS-C sensor
Fujinon 18-55mm f2.8-f4 (27-87mm equiv)
Fujinon 14mm f2.8 (21mm equiv)
Fujinon 60mm macro f2.4 (90mm equiv)
Fujinon 35mm f1.4 (50mm equiv)
Why all the cameras?
Well, the Sony system is largely for video work, but I’ll also be using it as a stills camera for the wedding – particularly with the spectacular 70-200mm lens.
The Nikon system is also for the wedding – for fast focusing and also the sharp-as-a-tack 16-35mm lens. Also for desert work, because of the weather sealing, (keeps dust out) and because of the delicious 24mm f1.4. An amazing lens.
And the Fuji system is for everything else. Discreet documentary photography – an easy walk-around camera because of its size and weight.
Luckily I’m not carrying all of this on my back!
If I were walking the Camino, I’d take just one camera and two lenses – the Fujifilm X-E-2 with the 18-55mm zoom, and the Fujinon 14mm f2.4. That would cover me for just about everything, and would give good image quality.
But for this trip, I have the luxury of a car, and so I can take the whole she-bang.
