Gear like McNally's

So you want to shoot like McNally? Well, here's step one: gear up. Renowned Nikon shooter Joe McNally's assistant Brad Moore has compiled a list of the gear the the McNally crew uses.

Whoa!

I did a head count of my gear recently to have a list for the insurance in case something happened and was actually pretty satisfied with what I saw. But my list is about one tenth of this one in length and probably about one third in quality. OK they do list each gel color separately. If I did that I could add a few items to my list. But it's still not quite the same. I know when Brad writes D3 it should say D3's (three at least) and when he writes D700 and SB-900 it also most likely to be more than one of each. Products which aren't even in the shops yet.

What can I say? Galloping NAS once again. More like a NAS stampede...

Sigh!

Scott Bourne, one of the hosts of the excellent podcast TWIP (This Week In Photography) is selling his Canon gear and buying Nikon in stead.

Now this is no "great, another convert!" sermon, but rather a comment on some of the reflections Scott made before the change - and quite a lot of envy over Scott's shopping list....

His lenses have been what Canonians refer to as "L-glass". In the Nikon world that would be similar to the lenses with gold rings - even though that will not quite cover it. The 85mm f1.8 has no gold ring... but I digress.
