James day shotkit camera gear

Anyone that has followed me over the years will know that I’m constantly reassessing the gear that I shoot with. I’m forever working out ways to simplify my kit, be lighter on my feet and also have the latest technology available to me.

I love mirrorless cameras and the opportunities they open up, and recently I made the switch from a Fuji X-T2 to the Sony a9.

While I loved my X-T2, I was searching for what was next for me and found that having eye AF and better high ISO capabilities were important to me.

[Ed – See Fuji X-T2 review and Sony a9 review for a comparison of these two great cameras!]

Throughout the day I typically shoot 35mm and 85mm for the majority of my images, yet my dance floor images would be more with the 12-24mm lens.

I have a 55mm f/1.8 for when I want a compact do-anything kind of lens, and I also have the 50mm f/0.95 for when I want all the Bokeh!

So, in my kit you’ll find:

Sony a9 x2
Sony 12-24mm f/4
Sony 35mm f/1.4
Mitakon 50mm f/0.95
Sony 55mm f/1.8
Sony 85mm f/1.4

Godox X1T trigger
Godox TT350s flash x2

Magmod grids & gels

Clamp for clamping flash to random surfaces.
