One Camera, One Lens, One Big City


Recently I took a trip to New York. I don’t travel often but when I do packing camera gear for my trip is a top priority. Normally I leave the city with a huge array of cameras, lenses and accessories.

I have a lot of gear and I use all of it. Each tool has a purpose and as a photographer the tools…

I’m not going to get TOO technical about this (I leave that to Dpreview) and instead I’m going to give you facts, photos, and some pros and cons.
