Photography Gear

My photography gear has changed over the years as new better products become available. I’ve travelled all over the UK and Europe for fifteen years. But, I have never had the ideal kit, this was due budget constraints, but since upgrading to the Fujifilm X-T3 Camera and lens, and the 3 Legged Thing Punks Billy Traveling Tripod, my current gear is pretty well complete

I am now using Fujifilm X-T3 which is major upgrade to my X-T2, new sensor! APS-C sized X trans sensor, ISO has been improved, 30 frames per second, and autofocusing speed by 1.5 times, with superb quality and build, and a new hand grip, the links to all of Fujifilm gear are below:

LEE Filters

I use a range of Lee graduated ND filters, both soft and hard graduated filters. All of these are used with the Lee Filter Holder. The quality of the filters are second to none; Lee also does a complete range of specialist filters. Blue sky, mist, sunset and much more.

For the full-frame DSLR, you need to use  the Lee 100mm filters
