I've kitted up a bit over the last few years and have had some frustration and success with using it all...
Currently enjoying using the following:-
1. Sony Alpha A850 -
1a). Lenses: Tamron 70-300 , Sigma wide angle, sony kit lense and ebay special Minolta 24-70 - favourite lense
2. Sony Nex 3 incl lense adaptor for Alpha series
3. Just acquired and not used - Minolta OM10 film camera and a plethora of extras
4. Jessops tripodsx2 and old unbranded heavy tripod
5. Sekonic l308S light meter
6. Neever - ebay special 3 lamp set, 2x soft boxes, brollies silver and white and studio background with white roll.
7. Jessops flashgun
I've happily proven to myself it's not all about the kit! its all in the viewfinder and the light...
