adventure photography gear list
So I get it all the time, “Dan, what’s in your bag?”, “What camera do you use?”, “How can I be just like you?”. Ok, I made up that last one. When I’m on my adventures I have to pack smart. I need products that are tough and versatile, I need to be able to quickly change gears to snap some pics then quickly setup to film video.

Just as important as the camera the lens is the first thing your image goes through. When choosing lenses there are two main categories Prime and Zoom. Prime lenses are typically faster (wider aperture) but are fixed in length. Zoom lenses usually aren’t as fast but are more versatile. For the most part I use zoom lenses because I just don’t have the time to switch lenses and the conditions I shoot in don’t make it realistic to expose my camera. Using the speed booster gives me an extra stop of light which helps offset the downside of zoom lenses. I love Canon lenses because of their stabilization, crisp detail and rugged build. I’ve put them through some extreme conditions and they just keep on performing.
