There have been several changes in my gear and vision since 2014.

Here’s what I’m doing in 2019:

1) I’m still using Sony for my main cameras – Sony a9 & Sony a7 III.

2) I’ve also added a Fujifilm 50R camera body for portraits.

This is a magic camera – all my lenses became wider with an increased depth of field (everything multiplies by 0.79). I attach my old Canon lenses to the 50R via a lens adapter.

3) I shoot photo and video at the same time (I use the Sony a7 III for the video and a9 for photos), then I take a still from the video (4K, Hslog) and make a video from the photos from my a9 (I shoot 20 frames per second and stick all the images together in Premiere CC).

4) I upgraded my computer and my SD cards. I now have 3x 256Gb Toshiba Exceria Pro, 2x 128GB Sony G, 1x 128gb Lexar 2000x and Sandisk 512gb.

5) Most of the time I use native Sony lenses: Sony GM 24mm f/1.4, Sony GM 85mm f/1.4, Sony 35mm f/1.4, Sony 16-35mm f/4.

6) I’ve started shooting 360 degree videos (GoPro Fusion) and sometimes take a still from the 5.2K video.

7) I’m still using my projection lenses.
