Imaging equipment

Nikon D750 full-frame SLR with Nikon AF-S 50mm f/1.8G and AF-S 28mm f/1.8G lenses. Relatively lightweight with great image quality, amazing dynamic range and impressive high ISO performance.

Nikon D7200 with Nikon AF-S 300mm f/4 PF ED VR lens and AF-S TC-14E III 1.4x teleconverter. Long reach for nature photography in a small, lightweight package — no tripod required. The D7200 has been a bargain since the release of the D500 and D7500.

The Fujifilm X100s, a lightweight mirrorless APS sensor camera. Superb image quality from a great sensor and lens combination, albeit with quirky handling and a convoluted menu system. Discreet and small enough to take anywhere.

GoPro Hero4 Black for video footage, with a handy screen for framing and not-so-useful (in the housings at any rate) touch screen.
