Cameras and lenses receive the glory for producing photographs while the rest of the support equipment stay in the sidelines.  Here we give our equipment a chance to be the center of attention.  One thing I have found true over time is that all gear is not created equal.  Light meters operate in different ways depending on the type of photography.  Camera bags good for a street walk might not be up to a week long travel opportunity.  Hence, like backpacking, we try lots of different gear until we get to know the gear and it becomes second nature to pick for a specific outing.

Here is gear I have owned or still own and use.  As I compile more information about this gear, I’ll link it here.
