Inside a pro’s camera bag
Jeremy Walker reveals the key bits of kit in his backpack
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.
