Whats in my bag (NSFW) “not safe for wives”

I get asked a lot about what gear I carry and use, so this is whats in my bags. I have 2 main kits, my Hasselblad kit which I use for about 85% of my commercial work and 60% of my personal work. And my Sony kit mainly used for low light, dirty and damp locations, or so I can use some of myΒ favourite lenses, Zeiss πŸ™‚ I also use the Sony for video

Wow … You don’t travel lightly .. I think you are an equipment addict , too … Beautiful set ups

    Peter

    yes I’m a gear rat πŸ™‚

      John pryke

      Snazzy set up πŸ™‚ So the canon lenses are used on the Sonys? Or are you still occasionally using Canon?

      John pryke

      Oh not to worry found the answer!! πŸ™‚

Mike

Love the “wives” addition! But it sounds more like it could be unsafe for husbands…lol. Good post and thanks for sharing.

Incredible !!! Nice stuff

Okay Peter,

Not only is your bag filled with great gear but what I love the most are your Ziess lens. Oh my to heavy for this one old gal could carry. But you rock for cool gear dam you got some good glass.

    Peter

    yes i love my Zeiss and the Batis is really lightweight as well

Javier

Great gear Peter! You have some money invested here. I would be delighted having the chance to try all those Zeiss lenses. Regards.

    Peter

    Yes Zeiss glass makes sony a game changer πŸ™‚

G’day Peter!

Three 85mm’s…

Zeiss Batis 85mm f1.8

Zeiss Milvus 85mm f1.4

Zeiss Otus 85mm f1.4

Which ones do you use when and why? πŸ™‚ not many peeps I know have all three to pick from πŸ™‚

    Tony Anastasi

    Btw – your blog is blocked here in China haha! You are now famous enough to get on China’s radar!

      Peter

      lols

    Firstly I love 85mm, my fav lens on the Hasselblad is the 100mm witch is equivalent to around 85mm on 35mm camera.
    The Zeiss Otus 85mm f1.4 is my fav lens ever so sharp wide open and an amazing bokeh, if I could only have one lens on my sony it would be the Otus 85mm.
    The Zeiss Batis 85mm f1.8 is so small and light compared to the Otus but still amazing quality, I mainly use this for travel and video, also the auto focus comes in handy.
    I got the Zeiss Milvus 85mm f1.4 for use on my second camera, Canon 1Dx for my assistant as it was still amazing quality but a lot cheeper, I have since sold my 1Dx.

Hi Peter, your photos are fantastic and they are inspiring me!
I am working with the 7R as well and I am looking for a flash light, which one would u prefere?
thanks, and greatings from germany πŸ™‚

    Peter

    I do like my Canon but I only use it in manual

Tom Watson

Can you tell a noticeable difference between the Zeiss Milvus 85 vs Otus 85?

    Peter

    The Milvus 85mm is not an Otus but very close, at less than 1/2 the price it is the best value for money but I love my Otus πŸ™‚

    If you have never shot an Otus and only shoot with a Milvus you will be 100% happy

Michael Rist

What do you mount the Canon’s on? I missed the mention of Canon bodies?

    Peter

    Sony A7r II and Sony A7s II, I sold my Canon 1Dx

Absolutely love your work, Peter.

Really glad to see that you had posted this, as I have a question for you regarding lighting. Would you recommend speedlights over strobes for your sort of work? Looking into getting one or the other, and I am unsure of which to get: Profoto B1 or the Nikon SB-910.

Thank you for any help you may provide me πŸ™‚

    Peter

    Profit B1 πŸ™‚

      Cody Schultz

      Even for on the go type work? Personally I tend not to do a lot of studio work – mainly working outside in various locations. Just not sure if I want to pay the $2000+ for the Profoto or just go for the cheaper SB-910…

Paolo

Dont worry if you will lost your bag;-)

Paul Tortora

Hi Peter,
I’m a CT based photographer and LOVE your work. Just purchased your RGGEDU video – worth every penny. I was wondering which specific Elinchrom October you frequently used and more importantly, the stand configuration (including brand and model of arm). Thanks again.

The 135/2 is a Sonnar, not Distagon.

    Peter

    Thanks typo πŸ™‚
