IN THE BAG: STEVE GOSLING
Olympus OM-D camera bodies
I switched to a completely mirrorless based system a few years ago. The bodies and lenses are small and lightweight with fantastic image quality. I carry at least two OM-D bodies – either two EM-5 Mark II’s or an EM-1 plus an EM-5 Mark II.
Olympus Pro Zooms
At the moment I have the Olympus M.Zuiko 12-40mm f/2.8 and 40-150mm f/2.8 Pro zoom lenses. They’re really well made and give great optical performance. I hope to add the 7-14mm f/2.8 Pro wide-angle zoom lens to my bag soon.
Lee Filters offer great optical quality and neutral filters that are just that – neutral. I couldn’t live without my ND grads (soft and hard), ND filters (2, 3, 6 and 10 stop) and a polariser. I use the Lee 100mm system on my Pro zooms and the Seven5 system on the Olympus primes.
Arca Swiss tripod head
I’m a great fan of geared heads for my landscape work and I’ve recently started using the Arca Swiss D4 – small, light and precision made; an ideal complement to my Gitzo tripods and my Olympus OM-Ds.
Olympus Cable Releases
Given my regular use of a tripod then it makes sense to use a cable release. I always carry two – just in case of loss or malfunction.
Earlier this year I bought the MindShift Rotation Pro180 and have to say that it’s the best backpack I have ever used – very well made, comfortable to carry, provides for easy access to my gear, flexible design due to the removable insert and lots of room for all the other stuff I have to take with me.
