I am often asked 'What should I buy?'

 

The very best camera is always the one in your hand!

In saying that if you are considering starting out or up-grading there are a few things to think about.

Camera:  Always buy the very best you can afford.  So much money is wasted by having to up-grade because your camera isn't capable of doing what you need it to. I've moved to mirrorless .... and I will never go back!  

Lenses: Think carefully about the type of photography you want to do.  If you want to shoot landscapes then go wide. A 16-35 or an ultra-wide 14-24mm is ideal.  However, if Macro is your thing then a prime lens would be suitable.

Filters:  These are essential for long exposures.  To start I suggest a polarizer, 0.9 graduated ND and a 6 stop. Remember you will need an adapter and holder.  It is much more affordable to buy a starter kit than everything individually if you can.

Bag:  Make sure it will fit everything you need to take with you with room to spare for extras like food and warm clothing. My bag is specially designed for a women's smaller frame.  So comfortable!

Tripod:  Yes... you need one.  Make sure it is stable enough that it will hold the weight of your camera and lens. I like minimal levers for adjusting the camera but you may need to think about this for things like for panning.  I also like clips for extending the legs.  It is a preference but I think it's much faster and since I always seem to be racing to sunset I find this useful.

Weight:  If you are going to be hiking then consider what it all adds up to.  It never feels too bad when you first lift it but try lugging it up a mountain all day!
