It's time you
try something new.
It feels nice when someone you trust gives you the green light to buy something exciting and new. When you love what’s in your bag and it suits your vision, it opens up the doors for you to be your best self every time you go out and shoot. The list below is categorized for your viewing pleasure. Cheers to nothing holding you back.
With a brand new 40mp sensor, the X- T5 delivers class-leading picture quality and is small and light to boot. Its high ISO performance and sharpness rival any camera out there. Compared to full-frame mirrorless cameras, Fuji gives you image quality that is equal or better but with much smaller lenses and at a much more affordable price point. With built-in IBIS, blazing-fast autofocus, and longer battery life, the X-T5 is hard to beat.
This is one of Fuji’s fast, compact, “budget” primes. It’s a low budget/high performance killer. It’s TINY, super sharp and has fast, quiet auto focus. With a focal length equivalent of 50mm it’s wonderful for portraiture.
Another of Fuji’s fast, compact, “budget” primes. This one lives in my camera bag since it takes up so little space and is such an important focal length. It’s TINY, super sharp and has fast, quiet auto focus. With a focal length equivalent of 35mm it’s perfect for storytelling, documentary, environmental portraiture or street photography.
The last of Fuji’s compact primes. If I were to choose one prime it would be this one. A 24mm equivalent gives a great perspective, be it street photography, environmental portrait or landscapes.
It’s really wide, and it’s really sharp. The 18mm equivalent angle of view sees the world in the most unique way. Excellent choice for landscape, architecture, or anytime you want to force perspective.
This is an updated version of the classic. Better image quality and weather resistance to go along with the increased resolution of Fuji’s new sensors. Gotta have this as a portrait photographer. Its f1.2 maximum aperture renders beautifully soft backgrounds without giving up any subject sharpness. Its narrower angle of view makes this lens a little less versatile than the 23 or the 35, but when you’re in its wheelhouse there’s nothing quite like this lens.
Tack sharp, stabilized macro lens which actually has a very effective auto focus system which is almost unheard of in the macro world. Sure it’s on the big side but its 1:1 reproduction ratio and amazing Fuji optics make it an easy choice for anyone who likes macro.
A really fun lens when you want to show the world in a whole new way. This rectilinear fisheye gives you plenty of distortion to make your images stand out. Put this manual focus gem on your Fuji, turn on the shoot without lens setting and get ready to have fun.
A 24-70mm equivalent for those who love a fast, sharp, weather resistant zoom lenses. Not as compact as some of Fuji’s other short zooms but it’s considerably lighter and more affordable than comparable lenses from Sony, Nikon and Canon. This one should be the very first lens you buy if you need a 2.8 zoom.
This lens covers the 70-200mm equivalent and does so with ruthlessly sharp optics, fast auto focus, OIS and weather resistance. One of the bigger lenses from Fuji but it’s much smaller and lighter than the Sony/Canon/Nikon equivalents. One of the sharpest lenses Fuji makes.
An 107-450mm equivalent that won’t break your back or your bank account. Much lighter than the 50-140 and with much more reach. It gives up a little sharpness compared to the razor-sharp 50-140 but it’s often worth the trade for more reach and more portability.
This is Fuji’s one lens solution. It covers the 27-200mm equivalent and does so without sacrificing much in terms of image quality. Add Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and weather resistance and you’ve got the perfect lens when you just want to bring one lens along.
ULTRA WIDE ZOOM
Big, heavy and irreplaceable! There’s nothing quite like a super wide lens if it suits your vision. Not petite by any means but it’s almost 1/2 lb lighter than the Nikon. For those that love the perspective and flexibility it gives it’s easy to justify.
Smaller ULTRA WIDE ZOOM
If the 8-16 is too big or too limiting for you, the 10-24 is a perfect choice. Still super wide but with the addition of image stabilization and the ability to use filters. A real winner!
A great travel tripod which folds down to 16” for easy packing and carrying. Although it’s lightweight it is sturdy enough to be used in situations when you’re not living out of a suitcase. It’ll easily hold 26lbs and if you’ve got a small DSLR or mirrorless camera it could be all the tripod you’ll ever need. You can even unscrew one of the legs and convert it into a monopod.
DO IT ALL
A true workhorse tripod. This thing is tall and is barely 4lbs with the head attached. Sturdy yet light, and it can easily go from a worm’s eye view, (inches off the ground) if you remove the center column to standing height.
The BE-139 head holds 38 lbs. and uses Arca style plates, which are a must. It comes with a generic plate but you can go to Really Right Stuff and get a plate that’s custom made for your camera.
They Robus legs are an unbelievable bargain. f you’re looking for a heavy duty gold standard of tripods, save money on Gitzo and Really Right Stuff legs (which are twice the price) and just get this. It’ll go from 4″ to 58″ in a snap and has a 10 year warranty.
It’s are heavier than the Oben legs to be sure but is rock solid, impeccably built and will carry any load. Great for SLRs and big lenses. Perfect for a medium format digital system.
Made of aircraft grade aluminum this beauty is super strong, light weight and affordable. I love that it has an adjustable friction knob so you can set it to not flop over when loosened. This one is a winner if you want a high performance ball head…the fact that it is also lightweight and inexpensive is icing on the cake.
A great mounting plate and grip extension in one. It’s low profile, light weight and gives you a little something extra to hold on to 🙂
This little contraption really reduces the frustrations of fine-tuning your focus without effecting your macro compositions. It’s very sturdy, well built and a joy to use. A macro must…don’t shoot close up without it!
SMALL ROLLER BAG
This bag fits all my gear and laptop and stows in the cabin of any aircraft…even small regional jets (under the seat). When I’m on small planes and traveling internationally and I want to be certain that I can keep my bag with me this is it.
CARRY-ON ROLLER BAG
This tiny pack holds an X-T5, 2-3 lenses, 3 batteries and a phone. Great for those who like to keep it small and portable in urban environments. It hangs nice and close to your body and has a “locking” mechanism on the zipper to keep things nice and secure.
The best way to keep all of your batteries, cords, portable hard drives and other accessories safe, secure and neatly organized.
Thin, lightweight, comfortable. It’s easy to get on and off with its smooth gliding quick-adjusters and is designed to operate with just 1 finger. Great for a mirrorless set up.
OEM batteries cost too much! Watson batteries are only $29.95 vs $70 for the Fuji brand. You get around the same life from the Watsons as you would get from Fuji batteries and they’re an absolute bargain. NOTE: THESE WILL FIT THE X-T5 and X-T4 but not earlier models!!!
If you’re the type to break cable releases or if you don’t like those small, fiddly connectors then this is your answer. This fits in your hot shoe and allows you to fire your camera via a hand held (cable-less) remote. This little device is much more convenient to use than cable releases.
VARIABLE ND FILTER
Just what you need for long shutter speeds. This filter can block from 2 to 8 stops of light when you rotate it, giving you a lot of flexibility with your shutter speeds. It’s sharp and reasonably priced with less vignetting, and color casts than its more expensive competition.
