Last year I switched to Canon. Finally! I used the camera last year and it immediately felt like I've always used the camera and that's exactly what you need in a camera. I should have done this much sooner. Not long ago I upgraded the camera to the Canon R6.
First of all, the camera bag itself. I have several, but mostly I use my Peak Design Travel backpack 45l Peak Design Travel backpack 45l when I go out. This bag offers a lot of space, but is very comfortable at the same time. For me, it's a big bonus that this bag is made from 100% recycled materials. I have a good overview of my belongings when I open the bag, everything is neatly tidy and has its own place in the bag.
The Peak Design Camera Cube Medium is a bag that protects your equipment extremely well, is easily accessible and keeps all my camera gear in place in the backpack. The Cube can be adapted to your own needs, so my camera equipment fits perfectly and yours will too.
Sometimes I also have my Peak Design Tech Pouch in my backpack, and when it's not in there, it's on my desk. The tech pouch is fantastic: it's much bigger than it looks with all the origami-style pockets and compartments. In the PD pouch I store all the small but necessary accessories. Cables, batteries, sd cards, external ssd, Airpods, power bank, a carabiner, my multi-tool, and so on.
I've been using mirrorless cameras for over ten years, and when Canon presented their first mirrorless camera, I knew for sure: I'm joining #teamcanon! Of course I had to have the camera with the same name as me. The Canon RP. I recently upgraded to the Canon EOS R6. What a fantastic camera! The EOS system is of high quality and the lenses are beyond perfect.

There is nothing more fun than taking off with a drone! I have been flying DJI drones for years and recently obtained all certificates in the open category (A1, A2, A3). This combination of drones are perfect. With the Mini you have more freedom in use, while the Mavic 2 Pro gives you complete freedom when taking photos with variable aperture and large 1 "sensor.

The most innovative tripod on the market..
A tripod is a tripod, right? Peak Design has shown that you can choose to make a difference, and have designed a completely new tripod. A tripod with attention to detail, thoughtful functions and above all one that you can always have with you and that is easy to use.

The travel backpack is flexible, comfortable and large. In some cases too big. I use it 70% of the time. If I want to take less I use one of the smaller bags.

In the past I hardly ever used filters, only when I wanted to shoot with slow shutter speeds, for example. When I started using PolarPro filters for my drone, I experienced how much better my photos got with filter. In addition, you can shoot with certain filters at times when that is actually not possible. For example, in the middle of a bright summer day. Especially for the drone I wrote a blog about the use of filters "How to take the best pictures with your drone".
The most important filters I use:
Polarpro Quartzline Circulair Polarizer
Polarpro Quartzline ND16/PL, ND1000/PL filters
Polarpro Variable ND filter 2/5 stops
I use a combination of Lexar SILVER series sd cards (shoot), Samsung external ssd (process) and Lacie Rugged hdd drives (backup). Someday I will write a blogpost about my backup process.
