What Camera Gear do you use?

What's in my Camera Bag?

So often people ask me what gear I use. I’d like to share a quote by Annie Leibovitz that embodies my thoughts on the subject. She said:

“If thats what you thinking about, you are not taking pictures”

Photographic Gear is not as important as you think. Sure it helps to have a super powerful high megapixel camera but its not the defining factor. Composition and being in the right place at the right time overrule your gear any day.  But because everyone want to know anyway… here we go with a short video about my gear:
