Gear is always a personal choice, but here is the gear I use:
I use the Olympus OM-D EM-1 Mark II as my primary camera. The camera is a part of the micro four-thirds (m43) format system. The m4/3 system is a great balance of size and image quality.
As much as I love the Olympus E-M1, it’s autofocus is not suitable for fast moving subjects. For sports and wildlife photography, I use the Nikon D500. It’s a fantastic DSLR for action photography.
I use the Olympus OM-D E-M5 as a backup camera and travel camera. The E-M5 is a bit smaller than the E-M1, but the autofocus performance is not quite as good. You can find the updated Mark II version of this camera here at Amazon.
When I want to go with a pocketable camera, I use the Sony RX100 Mark VA. It’s small, light and has a fast lens.
My favorite m4/3 and Nikon lenses are:
I use mostly Gitzo tripods such as the 3531.
For ultralight traveling, I love the Gitzo 0541. It weighs just 2 lbs and works great with m4/3 gear.
Ballheads, L-plates, etc.
I use Really Right Stuff (RRS) ball heads and plates. I have several of their ball heads and have their L-plates on all of my cameras.
I use the Wimberly Sidekick with a RRS BH-55 when I break out the big Nikon glass for birds and other wildlife.
I use the Godox/Flashpoint system for most of my flash needs. The triggers work well, and the system works with both Olympus and Nikon cameras. No more dedicated flashes for each manufacturer. I buy the flash equipment at Adorama.
