    There are some nice images being posted by board members in this section of the forum, so I thought it would be interesting to see what gear everyone is using.

    I will start off with my photography equipment (the 14-24 is with Nikon, having its service)....

    Nice thread idea! Not got much in the way of lenses (still only got the kit lens haha) but I've got a few other accessories.

    You'll have to excuse the photo quality - took the photo with my old Fuji S4000 camera (which I was using before I got my Nikon).

    Anyway, in the photo:
    Nikon D3200 with the 18-55mm VR DX lens
    Jessops 360AFD flashgun (mounted on top of the D3200)
    SanDisk Extreme 45MB/s 16GB SD card (500 RAWs, 4hrs of 1080p 24 FPS video)
    SanDisk Extreme 45MB/s 32GB SD card (1000 RAWs, 8hrs of 1080p 24 FPS video)
    Nikon EN-EL14 Li-Ion batteries (x2)
    Nikon ML-L3 infra-red remote shutter release
    Nikon D3200 body cap
    Generic brand 'handstrap' for the body (sometimes I use this strap, but usually I use the neckstrap which was included with the camera)
    LowePro Nova 180 AW bag
    Hahnel Triad 30 Lite tripod

    I wish it was mine, but it's works, get to borrow it if I want which is awfully kind of them.

    Canon 60D, 24-70L, 70-200 f/4, 50mm f/1.8, Sony Z5E, various Rode mics, mic booms and field recorders, matte box, rails, follow focus, Glidetrack slider/shoulder rig and the this bad boy! 16ft jib with remote pan/tilt head and field monitor, it's insane!

    Good stuff Travis. :good: I want a battery grip, but Nikon don't make them for the D3200. :(

    Better photos of my D3200 with the Nikkor 55-300 (since my mobile phone shots in my last post were pretty poor :p )

    I'll need to purchase a film SLR like that next year if I do photography at college after year 11. Darkroom processing and using film is part of the syllabus. :D

    My Rode VideoMic Rycote arrived! Really impressed with the improved audio quality. Looking forward to recording some proper videos with it.

    Here it is on the D3200 with the 18-55 kit lens:

    And here it is on the D3200 with the 55-300:

    Nice! I've got the VideoMic Pro, Rode are by far the best in terms of audio quality!

    Ah cool! I'm a bit too poor for the pro, lol. :p

    Would you recommend getting a dead cat? How much difference does it make?

    I've tested out my mic (recording some video with it tonight actually) and there is a big difference between it and the onboard audio, which sounds like you're in a tin can most of the time, ;)

    Does the VideoMic have -10db, 0db and +20db settings on it's preamp? If so, put it on +20db, it'll use the mic's preamp so the AGC in the camera will be much lower, resulting in less hiss and noise.

    Yeah, definitely. It pretty much eliminates wind noise - so if you use it outdoors a lot I'd get one!

    Did some recording with mine the other night, but the hotshoe is broken at the moment so I need to get a replacement.

    Man, I need more stuff.

    It's so hard to decide between a car or computer gear or camera gear.

    1st world problems.

    - Gripped D800
    - SB-700 flashgun
    - Nikkor 1.4 Teleconverter
    - Nikkor 35mm f/2D
    - Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D
    - Nikkor 85mm f/1.8G
    - Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8
    - Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 VRII
    - Nikkor 400mm f/2.8 VRII

    I got the 400mm 2.8 this week. It is a beast of a lens, very heavy indeed. The images that it produces are nothing short of stunning.

    That lens must have been easily $3,500.

    They are £6,700 in the UK, so around $10,000.
