Kit and technology

Camera

I’m currently using a Sony RX10 camera which I decided to buy after a lot of thinking that went something like.

  • Durable – no swapping lenses to attract dust, water and sand.
  • Decent build quality – the tropics can warp rubber and plastic pretty quickly.
  • High picture quality
  • Decent zoom, decent aperture setting.
  • Decent video and sound
  • RAW

In retrospect I am happy with this camera for now. It does have limitations in areas like autofocus, and noise at high ISO, but it’s small and light, and relatively inconspicuous.

Flash

At the moment, it’s a Nissin i40. I’m fairly happy with this flash because of it’s small size and relatively high power to size ratio. It’s never going to be great at long range in open space, and recharge rates are slow.

Tripod

Sirui T-025X. I bought this because I wanted a travel tripod and I have a love/hate relationship with it. When it’s fully extended it is quite wobbly and hard to set firm, even with weight attached. On the plus side, it’s really quick and easy to deploy, totally small and light, and has a pretty good ball head.

Image and video processing

Acer Aspire S3 for processing and editing. It’s looking a bit old now, and the integrated graphics card, which I chose because of reliability, has real trouble managing high definition video.
