My Wedding Camera Gear for 2018
This is a rundown of my Wedding Camera Gear that I currently use for weddings in 2018.
It’s worth noting that I shoot exclusively in a documentary fashion.
This means I don’t need or require any off-camera flash etc. I need photography gear that is small and lightweight that I can shoot with reliably all day.
You can, of course, find this video and lots of others over on my YouTube Channel.
As you’ll see in the video, I try to use as small a bag as possible and my prefered cameras are still the X-Pro2’s.
You can see me talking about and shooting a live wedding with the X-Pro2’s on the video my good friend Neale James shot for the launch of the camera two years ago.
There is a discussion in the video about when I use the F2 variants or the F1.4 variants, but by and large, because I don’t like to return to my camera bag, I stick to the F1.4 and F1.2 lenses.
X-Pro2 v X-H1?
I’ve had the Fujifilm X-H1 on loan for a week or so (it goes back this Friday) and I’ve taken it with me to a family shoot and, in fact, used it to film the above video.
I do like the X-H1, but, for now, I still prefer the smaller, lighter cameras in the Fujifilm range for shooting stills.
I explained my thought process on the Fuji X-H1 recently and now I’ve had time to use it properly, my thoughts remain the same.
The X-H1 is a brilliant camera for those that want DSLR size and styling with a mirrorless ecosystem. It’s also amazing for filming. If I buy the X-H1, it will be mostly for its filmmaking abilities.
