Day 3: Equipment during the UK trip
Laptop Battery

Nikon D4 is the most capable, advanced, heaviest and biggest camera I have. My guidebook suggests me to bring a light and small camera, but I ignored it and bring D4 to obtain terrific image quality. And I’m so happy to bring it because I went through a lot of low light situation during my trip and D4 is the one of BEST camera available in the market in low light situation.

NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR to capture amazing buildings and landscapes in the UK. I purchased this lens for this trip and this lens was certainly a main lens during my trip.

NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G for capturing low light situation as well as you’d like to have some bokeh.

NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8 ED VR II is needed in some situation, say taking pictures The Guard at Buckingham Palace.

Three Danbos to make my photo nice.

BLU TACK is a fantastic product to keep Danbos in specific pose. I actually forgot to bring mine to the trip, and tofu_catgirl gave her one to me. It really came in handy during the trip. I really appreciate her help.

A tripod to enjoy night photography including photos of the stars in the Lake District.

An extra battery in case D4 is running out of battery. D4 has a tremendous battery life though, it came in handy. I’ve experience so tired once that I fallen asleep without charging a battery.

Two ND filters, one is ND8 for panning during a day and longer exposure shot in evening. Another one is ND1000 for long exposure shot in a day light.

Battery chagers for batteries of Nikon D4 and DP1 Merrill.

Two hard disk drive, one to store my photos and another one to backup them so I won’t lose my photo.

An XQD card reader to copy photos from my XQD card to hard disk drives.

A CF card and a CF card reader for extra photo storage.

Also there are DP1 Merrill, Gorillapod and a laptop PC to use XQD card reader and hard disk drives.

I also wanted bring EF 400mm f/5.6L USM to enjoy bird photography in the Lake District, but I was overburden to carry the lens :(

I think I was trying a little bit too hard LOL

Taken with my backup camera for this trip, a Canon G10. Last year half way through my trip my new Canon 40D died on me. I had to cut my trip short due to not having a decent backup camera. This years goal, 200 churches in 10 days plus meet D.P. Mortlock and have him sign my books and spend a day churchcrawling with Simon Knott in Norfolk. And watch Man U win. And have a pint or two, or three.

The ‘Getting Started’ pamphlet is pretty thorough. On the back are amusing infograms that actually convey important info. Like, don’t throw the battery in a fire.

These are the usual contents of my crappy Eddie Bauer messenger/backpack bag. It can be either, but I wear it was a messenger. It’s not big enough and I’m looking into getting a new one. Okay. So it isn’t *that* crappy, but it really isn’t big enough for me.

See the contents of my new messenger bag!

There’s usually more paper in it, but I’ve done some cleaning recently – not that that’s something that happens very often…


Geralmente tem mais coisa dentro, mas eu fiz uma limpeza não faz muito tempo – olha a chova aí, gente!!
