Equipment

Here is a list of photography equipment I have, in case you were wondering.

(There are no affiliate links below)
 
Camera and Lenses:
Canon 5D mk. IV – When I decided to get a full frame, this is what I decided to get between this and the 1XD. Its heavy compared to the old T5.

Canon Battery Grip BG-E20 A grip to add some battery power and allow portrait shooting that’s much nicer.

Canon 28mm f/1.8 USM– Slightly longer than the old 24mm, but still great for those close quarters shots.

Canon 50mm f/1.4 USM – A classic, but with a huge aperture.

Canon 85mm f/1.8 USM– Haven’t used this yet, hoping to try for some outdoors stuff.

3x B+W 58mm Clear UV Haze Shield – UV Filters
 
Flashkit:
4x Godox V860II-C – Speedbulb

Godox Xpro – Remote

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.

2x Neewer 16″ x 16″ – Medium Softboxes, for carrying around.

2x Neewer 9″ x 9″ – Small Softboxes, suitable to mount directly on flash with no support.

2x Handgun Grips – Use to mount a flash kit to and aim with stability and focus.

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
 
Backdrop:
Promaster Telescoping Background Stand – Backdrop Frame

Square Perfect 4060 – Muslin backdrops
 
Misc:
2x Peak Design Capture Camera Clip V3 – Camera adapter to clack on to my backpack or waistbelt.

Vanguard VEO 265AB Aluminum Travel Tripod – Tripod that I can attach my camera to without changing out the Peak adapter

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

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

CamelBak Repack LR4 – For when the backpack is inappropriate, this allows me to carry the hydration and gear easily. It does feel like it could use more padding though.
  
Obsolete Gear (old stuff I no longer use):
Camera and Lenses:
Canon Rebel T5 – Where the professional 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 swore 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 was 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

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.

Misc:

Viltorx JY-120-C1 – Wireless shutter

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.
