Digital Photography Gear: Cool Equipment

I guess that photography is like a lot of other pastimes. Favorite hobbies can make a once ordinary person completely obsessive when it comes to the newest equipment and gadgets. My husband does the same with his golfing fixation. It’s almost inevitable. Once you start getting into a hobby, you want to look at every new piece of equipment that comes out on the market.

New photography equipment can be a lot of fun and there’s always something new coming out to catch your eye and strike your fancy.

For that reason, I’m always interested in what kind of gear other photographers are looking at.

A couple of days ago, I came across a video that’s perfect for my equipment obsession. It’s titled, “Essential Gear or What’s Just Too Cool to Live Without” by famous wildlife photographer Moose Peterson. It’s a long video—just under 2 hours and I watched it over a few of sessions spread over 2 days—but it’s very interesting and entertaining and well worth the time.
