Behind the Lens
Some of My Current Photo Gear for Hiking and Backpacking
Welcome to my first exclusive subscriber post on gear, where I peel back the curtain on the tools I use to capture the stunning beauty of Alaska. As someone who spends a significant portion of time hiking, backpacking, snowshoeing, and skiing with my camera equipment, I've come to appreciate the importance of the tools of the trade.
My gear selection is not merely a choice but a meticulous tightrope walk balancing comprehensive research, budget considerations, and practical requirements. The quest for high-quality, full-frame equipment without depleting my bank account led me down an intriguing (yet not always ideal) path: operating with two different camera systems, Nikon and Sony. In this post, I will explore why and how I chose this setup and share how it functions in the diverse and challenging environments I explore.
