There is always a debate on camera equipment and people often want to know what type of gear photographers use so they can purchase similar gear. We need to understand the creative process is as important as the gear we have, because at the end of the day what matters is what you can do with the tools you have. Today I would like to share with you the evolution of my camera gear, from the first camera I used to the camera I am using now.
This was my first camera. I did not plan to buy this camera, I just needed any DSLR to start my photography. I borrowed this camera from my cousin, which in the end I eventually kept. The lens it had was an 18 – 55mm f3.5 – f5.6 kit lens. I have to say this camera is just magic when you exploit its features to the fullest. It was great camera and I captured some great images with it!
I purchased the Nikon D3200 after selling my Nikon D40. I wanted the D3200 for its video features and it was the best I could afford at that moment. I decided to stick to Nikon cameras because I was already familiar and comfortable on using them. I also purchased the Nikon 50mm f1.8 lens which I am still using for most of my shoots.
Currently I am using the Nikon D7200 and two lenses: Nikon 50mm f1.8 and Tamron 17 – 50mm f2.8. The D7200 is a just a beauty! It has pro features and fast dials which give me more flexibility while shooting. It also has great video features which is important to me since I do both photography and videography. I will stick with this babe for a while, because at the moment it caters to all my needs, in fact I have no plans to sell her at all.
My future plan is to get the Nikon D750. I want two have two bodies. This will be a great upgrade since it’s a full frame sensor. The D750 comes with even more advanced photography and video features which will definitely be a blessing to me!
I am not affiliated with Nikon and I am not brand oriented when it comes to photography equipment. I have used equipment like Canon, Sony and Pentax before and they are all great cameras. It all depends on how you use the gear. So, there you are – this is the gear I use. You can expect a post about the accessories I use in the near future, so stick around!
