Finally, a photo that I’m positive that no one will ask to have a desktop made of! Sorry for the quality here, its just my iphone camera in my dark bedroom tonight while getting together gear for the trip. We are heading out tomorrow afternoon if all goes according to plan. We are heading straight west and sort of seeing how things play out money wise before we solidify our plans. Making it up as we go along really, exactly how a road trip should be heh.
So this is most of the photo gear we will have with us while we are out traveling around and I thought plenty of readers would love to see what kind of gear will be coming with us on the trip. The photo is pretty much divided down the middle here. The stuff on the left is mine and the stuff over on the right is YoungDoo’s. Whether or not I will use all that film has yet to be seen. I will be surprised if I get through half of it but I decided better safe than sorry really. It’s about half the stock I have here at home.
I think the next reasonable thing to do would be to list out all of the wonderful toys we have here to use while exploring the U.S. so anyone wondering what any particular thing is so I will sort of work my way left to right (top to bottom) in a never ending list of cameras, lenses and film and leave you to match them up in your head to the best of your ability. Maybe I will toss it over on flickr and fill the image with annoying box labels, well see.
On the left: Voigtlander R3M, cleaning cloth, card reader, Canon 14mm f/2.8L lens, 5D with 35mm f/1.4L, extra batteries, blower, Manfroto 190XProB tripod, Olympus XA, Hasselblad 501CM with 80mm 2.8 lens and extra 120 back, Sekonic L-358 light meter. The film up there on the left side, (35mm) Neopan 100 , Neopan 400, FujiPro400H, (120) slightly expired Neopan 400, FujiPro160S, FujiPro400H, Provia100, and a few rolls of interesting looking “retro” 80s Rollei B&W film made by Agfa that I have never used.
On the Right: A bag of all sorts of films YD brought along, Canon Speedlight 580EXII (we also have a lighting stand and umbrella for this to play with), Canonet, Holga, Eximus ultra wide, Canon 24-70 f/2.8L, Canon 85mm f/1.8, 5DmkII with a 50mm f/1.4, and a Lensbaby Composer with the double glass optic inside.
