My Gear

This is a  list of my gear. I’m sure I’ve not included certain items that we all keep in our bags – microfiber cloths, lens cleaning fluid, etc.
Fuji Gear and Other Stuff:
Fuji X-T2 black body
Fuji X-T1 black body
Fuji 18-55 F2.8-F4 Lens

Zeiss Touit 12mm F2.8
Eight Fuji Batteries plus three  four chargers now with the X-T2
Think Tank battery holder for five batteries (need a larger one, I know)
Arca type Bracket for a better grip and heft
Lexar and Sandisk SD cards in 16G and 32G sizes totaling  394Gigs
Think Tank brand pocket rocket memory card holder
Step up rings for each lens to bring them all up to a 77mm filter size for standardization
Inexpensive eBay lenscaps in 77mm size to use when filters are on the lenses
Inexpensive eBay lenscaps in 58mm to fit my 18-55 which is my most oft used lens
Fuji EF-42 Flash
Fotosay 10mm and 16mm close-up extensions for the Fuji X lenses
Fuji Remote for occasional use though I now tend to use the iPhone/iPad app whenever possible
Camera and Gear Bags:
Thinktank Retrospective 20 in Pinestone
LowPro AW302 Slingbag (used primarily for storage at home or for car travel) (Given away) nondescript, brown sling bag for daily shooting.  Has tons of pockets for lenses and gear
Amazon Gear Backpack — Super nice, and orange interior so I don’t lose stuff.
North Face Day pack for short hikes
Jill-E bag insert for the Amazon bag and any one of my other carry bags
Fossil brand Leather attache/shoulder bag that I can slip the Jill-E insert into and use it to carry my Fuji or Nikon to and from the office daily.  The Jill-E bag allows various inserts to be velcroed inside converting the insert into various pockets to hold camera and/or lenses.
My spouse is very proud of me!  I’ve reduced the number of bags down from a high of 14 to only 6. Now she’s back to being the queen of bags and purses.

Computers and Software
Primary work station is a Mac Mini, 500g internal HD, 16G of Ram purchased 2014
Apple 24” Display connected to the Mini via Thunderbolt port
Acer 27” Display via connected to the Mini via HDMI
8TB Western Digital, USB3 and Thunderbolt External HD that holds my LR Master Photos
Drobo External 4-bay  3.5” HD unit configured as a 16TB maximum storage array for backups
11” Macbook Air (2015) with 256G SSD and 8G Ram
15” Macbook Pro (2009) with 500G SSD and 8G Ram
Too many 1TB and 2TB external USB 3.0 drives to list
Apple 16G iPad mini used for editing and uploading Fuji files via Snapseed for social media
iPhone with the following Photography related apps:
Fujifilm Camera Remote
DOF Master
TPE (The Photographers Ephemeris)
Longtime (helps determine long exposures with ND filters)
Amazon Prime Photos for backup
NDTimer (same as the Longtime but a bit easier to use)
Adobe Lightroom 6.x and CC for image uploading, developing, printing and file management
Apple Aperture to dabble with but now that it’s not supported I’ve stopped using it entirely
Silkypix 3.x for processing the Fuji RAF files (useful when LR was unable to properly develop RAF’s)
Nikon Capture NX2 for Nikon D800e files used as needed for problem files
Adobe CS6 & CC for minor adjustments, mostly spot removal as LR is too heavy handed; though I tend to try and stay in LR as much as possible when I edit images
Iridient Developer v3.x an absolutely amazing tool for eeeking the maximum details out of the Fuji Raw files
These apps are installed in all three of my macs and are configured the same across each machine in order to avoid any confusion while working – especially on the road.  I also make sure my dock icons are in the same exact position across all the Macs.  I know, a bit OCD, but it does speed up the workflow.
