Equipment

Here is a list of photography equipment I have:

Camera and Lenses:

Canon Rebel T5 – Where the pro life started. Came with standard lens and 70-300mm pack in.

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 – It wouldn’t be until later that I would realize why this was important but its great!

Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 – The lens I swear by as it is the best thing I have for the dark and gives me great bokeh at conventions while keeping my firing distance from being too insane (unlike the 50). Also didn’t cost a fortune to get.

 

Flashkit:

Yongnuo YN565-EX – E-TTL Flash for when the built in one is not enough.

4x Yongnuo TN-560 III – Flash with built in receiver

Yongnuo YN560-TX – Flash Controller

Yongnuo TN-560 IV – Flash with built in controller, used for some interesting pictures

2x Manfrotto 5001B – Light Stand

2x Manfrotto 026 – Umbrella Adapter

2x Manfrotto MTPIXILE – Mini Tripod for putting flashes in odd places.

2x Westcott 2016 – Flash Umbrella, cover is useful on.

4x Selens SE-CG20 – Flash gels. Wide colors, easy to use. Funnily enough, after buying these more people I know bought the same thing right after me!

4x Neewer Metal Shoe – Flash Adapter

 

Batteries:

48x EBL AA 2800mAh – Batteries

3x Titanium Innovations MD-1600L – When you must absolutely, positively charge every battery at once, these are for you. Comes with a car charger (of all things) too.

12x Self-printed battery labels. Just double sided papers that say “Charged” and “Dead” to fit into the battery cases.

 

Backdrop:

Promaster Telescoping Background Stand – Backdrop Frame

Square Perfect 4060 – Muslin backdrops

 

Misc:

Viltorx JY-120-C1 – Wireless shutter

HPRC 6300W – Black hard case for all my photography equipment. Most importantly useful to fly with.

KabelDirekt Mini-HDMI to HDMI Cable – Instant feedback.

Zonman Universal Underwater Housing Case – Underwater kit.

Focus F-1 Sling – Slings are way more useful than the default strap. Get one.

Osprey Packs Kestrel 38 Backpack – This sounds like nonsense but it is a very comfortable carrying pack for equipment walking around cons.
