The (Invincible) Fujifilm Landscaper Kit

What's In My Camera Bag? (2019 Edition) (Trevor Sherwin Photography)

“What’s the best camera to get?” “That’s a great photo, what camera did you use to take that?” These are just a couple of the questions I regularly receive when people see my photos, so, for those interested, here is my own What’s in my camera bag? 2019 edition.

Before I start, it is worth noting that I firmly believe it’s the photographer that has the vision, chooses the subject and creates the image. There are many photographers that successfully shoot with a single body and lens, a compact camera or even just their camera phone and still produce quite stunning work so don’t get fixated on the photography gear, always fixate on the craft and seeking to create your own artistic style.

Trevor's has a well-organised system that I think I am going to duplicate. I have just one camera, the Fuji X-T2 and one lens (Fujinon XF16-55mm R LM WR) which I use with an insert that is similar to your light-weight kit. I pop that into a messenger bag for when I am hanging out in New York City or Philadelphia with friends. However, I think the 16-55mm may be too heavy/bulky for that.

For me, I think the Fujinon XF27mmF2.8 R or XF23mmF2 R WR would be better suited for the ultra light-weight kit. The XF27mmF2.8 R approximates the field of view of a full-frame "normal" lens but has no aperture ring. I think this is just right for street photography. I would want to fix my aperture at F5.6 or F8. Another idea is I could purchase a Fuji X100F for this purpose. It would fit nicely within the ultra light-weight bag.

For a lightweight city/travel kit, would the Manfrotto Street Backpack be big enough to hold the Fujinon XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR + XF50-140mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR, along with with four batteries, a MeFoto travel tripod, and a bag of trail mix?

The (Invincible) Landscaper1 kit would be:

  • Body: Fujifilm X-T2
  • Wide to Medium Telephoto: Fujinon XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR
  • Telephoto: Fujinon XF50-140mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR lens
  • Street: Fujinon XF23mmF2 R WR lens or Fujifilm X100F
  • MeFo travel tripod or Manfrotto tripod
  • Plenty of batteries (4) and memory cards (2)
