Today's Setup #MyGear

Today I'm shooting the Downtown Improvement Districts annual Buskerfest.

It's a culmination of some of the most talented folks gathered into the center of downtown Fort Wayne. 

Anyways, the gear that I packed is below, I'll throw up some links for each, a brief description, and at some point I hope to have a more detailed review of this gear and more.

My gear list from left to right:

  1. Promaster Tripod
  2. Manfrotto Monopod
  3. Canon 80D
  4. Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L ll USM
  5. Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III
  6. Canon 580EXII
  7. Sony Alpha a6500 Mirrorless Digital
  8. Sony FE 70-200mm F4 G OSS
  9. Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless
  10. Rokinon 12mm F2.0 NCS CS Ultra Wide
  11. DJI Osmo

My approach to using the gear was this: use a mounted cam with one of the two 70-200's (wasn't sure yet) and then for the second half shoot with the "other."

I always try to have a backup but in this situation, I knew that it was going to be a long day and that after shooting for over 5 hours, I'd have close to a thousand images and at least 60 minutes or so of 4K video shot with my new a6500.
