Fujifilm X-T2 : Excellent all round camera

My main camera for landscape photography. It offers very good image quality while having a compact and lightweight body. Although if you are getting into the Fujifilm system, I would recommend the latest Fujifilm X-T3

Lenses

Fujifilm 10-24 f/4: Superb wide angle zoom

My most frequently used lens for landscape photography. 15-36 mm equivalent on full frame. Constant aperture f/4 throughout the focal range making it a very compact and lightweight lens. Good build quality and sharpness. Since I need depth of field, most of the time I use an aperture between f/5.6 - f/11, so I don’t have any problems with the largest aperture being f/4.

Fujifilm 50-140 F/2.8: Amazing Telephoto Zoom

I have upgraded to this F/2.8 telephoto lens for its sharpness throughout the focal range. The images out of this lens are beautiful and rich of details. The focusing is fast and accurate. I replaced my Fujifilm 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 lens with this lens.

Fujifilm 55-200 f/3.5-4.8: Affordable Telephoto zoom

This is the more affordable telephoto zoom lens I previously used for landscape photography. Equivalent to 83-300mm on full frame. This lens is much more compact and lightweight compared to 50-140mm f/2.8 lens. Overall it produces fine image quality but I have replaced this lens with 50-140mm f/2.8 for better sharpness throughout the focal range.

Rokinon 12mm f/2: Excellent wide angle prime for its price

Equivalent to 18mm on full frame, this is my go-to lens for shooting astrophotography. Large aperture at f/2 means I can use a lower ISO than I normally would. Great sharp lens but it is manual focus only. I have done a tutorial video on how to use focus peaking feature to help you focus with this lens. Check it out here.

Tripod

Benro Mach3 2 Series Carbon Fiber tripod

Super lightweight with three-section legs. Very versatile.

  • Load capacity: 30 lb

  • Weight: 3.1 lb

  • Maximum height: 63.78 in

I use Benro B0 ball head with this tripod.

accessories

Fujifilm MCX-16 extension tube

The extension tube can shorten the minimum focusing distance to make the subject looks much larger. I don’t have a micro lens in my Fujifilm camera system. If I want to capture some close-up photos, I would use this extension tube with the 55-200mm lens.

Vlogging Camera

Canon EOS M50 with 15-45mm Lens

  • Dual pixel auto focusing + face detection is awesome for vlogging

  • Fully articulating screen

  • 3.5mm microphone jack for better audio recording
