NIKON PHOTOGRAPHY GEAR

 

Over the years, I have steadily purchased a lot of photography equipment including my primary camera – the Nikon D850. I love this camera!

 

In my early days of serious photography, I owned Olympus and Canon cameras which were great. However in 2009, I was introduced to Nikon cameras by a friend and made my first purchase – a Nikon D5000 (with 18-55mm lens). I was impressed and have owned Nikon photography gear ever since.

As a professional photographer, I am always looking for the best photographic and filmmaking equipment available on the market.

 

During recent times, I have formed a new partnership with an exciting and rapidly growing company called Vitec Imaging Solutions who are based in the town of Cassola in northern Italy.

 

Vitec Imaging Solutions are one section of the Videndum (formerly known as Vitec Group), the parent company to an impressive portfolio of brands including Manfrotto, JOBY, Lowepro, Gitzo, Syrp, Rycote, Avenger, Colorama, Savage and National Geographic Camera Bag Collections.

 

Over recent months, I had the pleasure of field testing and reviewing Vitec Imaging Solutions products in the field.
