In­side a pro’s cam­era bag

Jeremy Walker re­veals the key bits of kit in his back­pack

Digital Camera World - - ONE TO ONE -

Nikon D850 1

“This is my main cam­era nowa­days, but I also carry a Nikon D810 as a backup. Each body has a Kirk L-bracket on it – for fast at­tach­ment to my Arca Swiss tri­pod head, and al­low­ing me to quickly change from landscape to por­trait for­mats. I carry four spare bat­ter­ies with me, so tend to leave the charger at home.”

Lee fil­ters 2

“I have 11 fil­ters with me today… in­clud­ing eight neu­tral-den­sity grads. I have 0.6, 0.9 and 1.2 medium grads; I don’t use soft grads for land­scapes, but have one for cityscapes. I also have 0.6, 0.75, 0.9 and 1.2 hard grads. I use the 0.6 grad the most, so I carry a spare: it is eas­ier to swap than clean if it gets cov­ered in salt spray. I carry three NDs: the 10-stop Big Stop­per, the six-stop Lit­tle Stop­per, and the 15stop Su­per Stop­per.” (See page 12).

Zeiss 3 Distagon 21mm f/2.8 ZF.2

“This is the widest lens in my back­pack today – but I do have a Nikon 14-24mm in the car. Also with me are my three favourite Nikon lenses: a 24-70mm f/2.8, a 70200mm f/2.8, and a 50mm f/1.4. In the car (just in case) I keep a 300mm f/4, and a 45mm TS/E tilt-shift.”

Matin LCD 4 Viewfinder loupe

“This is es­sen­tial on a day like today. It al­lows me to check my shots on the LCD screen in bright sun­light. It has a neck­strap, and of­fers a 2x mag­ni­fi­ca­tion.

It costs

£50 (www. cam­er­a­clean. co.uk).”
