TOO MUCH GEAR.

Too many cameras.


I definitely have too much gear but I can’t see myself getting rid of any any time soon. I am running three systems at the moment, Nikon, Fuji and Canon and I use them at different times and for different reasons as they all have their strong points. Most of my gear is not new, the last new lens I bought was a Vitrox 13mm f1.4 for Fuji.


Nikon D3s and a few lenses I bought recently for great prices used. I still enjoy using a DSLR, especially of this quality. Other Nikons I have and still use are the Nikon D2HS, and Nikon D1. I am definitely a hoarder.

The Canon 1D Mk IV has been my main work camera for the past 10 years and it has never put a foot wrong, always giving me the images I required, but like the Nikon D3s it heavy and you need to be fairly strong to hump it and its L lenses around for a days shoot.

Fujifilm have been building wonderful cameras for a while, cameras with a bit of class. My general everyday camera for work is now Fuji either the XT2 or 3, with the battery grip as they still cannot compete with DSLR’s, power wise.

Picture wise they can in certain circumstances, better the comparable DSLR.

I also use the Fujifilm X Pro1,2 & 3 .

If you are looking for a camera that can capture the essence of street photography, you might want to consider the Fuji X Pro2. This camera is designed with street photographers in mind, offering a range of features that make it easy and enjoyable to shoot in any situation. Here are some of the reasons why I love using the Fuji X Pro2 for street photography.

First of all, the Fuji X Pro2 has a hybrid viewfinder that lets you switch between an optical and an electronic viewfinder. This gives you the best of both worlds: you can use the optical viewfinder for a more natural and immersive experience, or you can use the electronic viewfinder for more accuracy and information. The electronic viewfinder also has a magnification function that helps you focus manually, which is great for street photography.

Secondly, the Fuji X Pro2 has a compact and discreet body that blends in with the crowd. The camera is not too big or heavy, so you can carry it around comfortably and discreetly. The camera also has a retro and classic design that looks stylish and elegant. The camera does not attract too much attention, which is ideal for capturing candid moments on the street.

Thirdly, the Fuji X Pro2 has superb image quality that delivers stunning results. The camera has a 24-megapixel APS-C sensor that produces sharp and detailed images with rich colours and tones. The camera also has a wide range of lenses that suit different styles and situations. You can choose from prime lenses, zoom lenses, wide-angle lenses, telephoto lenses, and more. The lenses are also fast and bright, which means you can shoot in low-light conditions without compromising on quality.

Finally, the Fuji X Pro2 has a user-friendly interface that makes it easy to adjust settings and modes. The camera has dedicated dials for shutter speed, exposure compensation, ISO, and drive mode. You can also customize the buttons and menus to suit your preferences. The camera is intuitive and responsive, which means you can focus on your subject and not on your camera.

These are some of the reasons why I think the Fuji X Pro2 is a great camera for street photography. It offers a unique and enjoyable shooting experience that lets you capture the beauty and diversity of life on the street. If you are interested in street photography, I highly recommend you to try out the Fuji X Pro2.
