We list here the gear that we use and have.
All of the products we have are things that we procured bit by bit over the span of years. Not the top of the line range here, just what fit our pockets.
We have 4 active Nikon APS-C camera bodies. Started with the D5000 as a hobby photographer and then progressed to the D5300 and then the D500.
So, of course, most of our lenses are Nikon too.
We had a Sigma 150-600 for a while but sold that to upgrade to the Nikkor AF-S 200-500mm.
We had two Tamron lenses - the 100-400mm and the 18-400mm.
The 100-400 was a bit soft so we sold that off but still have the 18-400mm as a all in one travel lens. May not the sharpest, but it gets the job done when you can carry only one lens, or when the 200-500 gets too heavy!
We have the Tokina ultra wide 11-16mm f2.8.
This is our portrait and landscape lens.
We have their aluminum tripod+ball head and their gimbal head.
Good sturdy stuff.
Their Airport Commuter backbag is awesome.
Compact, well padded and easily customizable (inner dividers can be rearranged) as per our need.
And durable too!
We have two of their backpacks. The smaller Faspack BP 150 AW and the larger ProTactic 450 AW.
Great bags to lug our precious cargo all over and into planes, trains, buses and cars.
Budget friendly and reliable. We have their compact aluminum tripod/monopod with a ball head.
