Landscape Photography | What’s in my camera bag? Gear talk and practicalities.




In this video I’ll show what’s in my camera bag. It’s the question I get asked the most, so I might as well show you all. I’m a landscape photographer so my gear is obviously based on that. When it comes down to gear there’re no “right” or “wrong” gear, there’re something which is more optimal in regard to the work you do. I don’t have the money to go buy all the best gear, so this is not a “best” landscape photography gear, this is my gear based on the work I do to get the optimal image without spending a fortune. Can it be done cheaper? Probably… can it be done more expensive? Yes! I’m not going too much into the reviewing the gear itself because it honestly doesn’t interest me too much.

  1. Thanks for the video, Mads. You said that you always bracket your shots. What do you use to blend the bracketed pictures together before you start editing it? Some sort of HDR software?

  2. Another excellent video, Mads, and appreciate your honesty about some of your gear, with which you aren't too happy. Interested to hear your dilemma about jumping ships, possibly to Nikon. As you say, you are disappointed with the new 6D mark 2 and rightly so but is there any reason why you appear not to have given consideration to the 5D MK IV?

  3. Great video as always Mads. It is always interesting to see what gear other photographers use. If I could go back in time there would be a few changes made I can assure you. I use a Nikon D800E with an f2.8 14-24mm lens which is very heavy and does not allow filters to screw on to the front of it as the lens is so bulbous, so I use a Fotodiox system which allows me to use a polariser along with huge sheets of glass that are the ND filters. Lot's of weight and bulk. I also have a Tamron 24-70 f2.8 plus other stuff like batteries, cards, raincoat for the camera, remote release, and I also use the Camranger for remote release via my iPad mini. It allows me to adjust focus, aperture and trigger the capture all from up to 100metres away, it is very handy sometimes when the camera is perched in a precarious position and there is no room to stand. I use the Lower AW 450 Trekker so I can also carry water with me. Anyway mate keep the videos coming.

  4. On the Peak Design Capture Pro Camera Clip, Would it work with an L bracket? I love the concept of the Camera Clip, but don't want to give up my L Bracket. Thanks. Love your Vlogs!!

  5. Thanks for this, when you change Canon to Nikon now that you go see top Quality!!!!!! lol … I had Canon and changed to Nikon, now I am a user of a D800 and I love it , but I agree with you, the photographer always the principal, the photographer , good material helps but the last decision is always by the photographer , anyway, liked the DJI tip for backpack … Now I have one solution to my DJI 3 4k , all the best, keep up the amazing vlog , regards from Portugal .

  6. You may not be entirely happy with your gear (that is always a moving target), but your images and video productions are superb. And if that's not enough, you also supply maps and information about where you are and how you got there. Good work and thanks. Oh, let's not forget you cohort!

  7. Like a lot of people commenting here, I have taken to shooting with two systems – Fuji X-T2 for street, family, travel and some landscape work. Canon for the rest. I agree with you regarding low light ability. My Canon (5D4) is better in low light. However, at base ISO they are pretty indistinguishable. The Canon has better dynamic range by about an extra stop with the shadow detail (for once…). The new Nikon looks amazing, but I am not interested in jumping ship back to Nikon (I used Nikon (and still do for film) for over 25 years). The problem is as soon as you jump, the other manufacturer will bring out their new camera – in Canon's case the 5DSR MKii. Although, I am not sure how even a new 5DSR is going to compete on the D850 spec!

    Those little Fuji's though are just so much fun to shoot with!

  8. Useful advice, but maybe you should follow it too. You are paying a huge weight penalty for full-frame and a moderate additional one for not using mirrorless. You say you don't need a huge pixel count. Your stated reason for requiring full frame is sensor noise. Each generation of sensor has substantially lower noise. I'll bet that if your full-frame camera is OK now then the next generation of APS-C sensor will be OK too. If you're going to be replacing lenses, it might take one or two generations of sensors before you are done.

  9. Mads, your video helps many of us make decisions on gear. Because of this video I have decided to stay with an APS-C sized sensor, Fuji X Pro 2.  Thanks for this and for your very enjoyable videos!!

  10. A great down to earth and honest appraisal of your gear Mads. I have two systems. Fuji XT2 with Fuji glass and Nikon with mainly F2.8 lenses. All super quality. Does this make me a better photographer? Of course not. Do they help with composition and creativity? Nope, they are inanimate objects. But, they are the tools of our trade and it helps to have the best tool for the job. The new D850 does sound very good indeed. In particular the huge dynamic range. I just need to persuade my other half my quality of life will improve dramatically if I'm allowed to buy one! Dave

  11. The PD capture clip is great, but I've had problems with the plate on my Manfrotto XPRO ballhead, where it just didn't sit quite right. Nearly had a smashed camera on one occasion, so I switched back to the Manfrotto plate, and I only occasionally use the clip now. It's a great product, but just be careful!

  12. Hi, I just found your channel and I really love your work and content of your videos. I was researching for a trip I'm going to make soon to Moab Utah. Your videos really inspired me and gave me a lot of direction on where to go. Thanks for sharing your gear video. Just one quick question. What camera did you use to shoot the slow-motion video of the waterfalls in Oregon? I will look for you on other social media sites and I look forward to what you will produce in the future. Tony

  13. Nobody does it better Mads.. Your videos are so professional and love all the extra tips and advice and directions info. You say you do bracketing. I would love to see how you blend your images. Any chance of a post processing video?

  14. It brilliant to see/hear such honesty, many 'What's in my bag's are all about how good my kit is. So refreshing to hear your opinion of your bag, camera etc. Great video.

  15. Great video and always interesting what other landscaper photographers carry to get the shots. I found myself going smaller and lighter over the years. Most of my DSLR are staying home when I'm on a trip. My favorite set up is the A7r II with the loxia lenses (a one gallon ziplock back will cover this set up when it rains) and a small carbon fiber tripod with Novoflex heads/plates etc.

  16. Interesting seeing other photographers gear, thank you! It is definitely all about being there rather than the gear itself, but definitely the gear can help sometimes.
    As for a ball head I'd recommend the Arca Swiss Z1, it's very similar to the Really Right Stuff ballheads and European made which makes it slightly cheaper in this side of the pond. Very easy to use and extremely precise!
