by Corey Rich

One of the most common questions any professional photographer will get is, “What’s in your bag?” In this Tech Tip, I share not just what camera equipment I rely on for my light-and-fast approach to capturing adventure still and motion content, but I also provide a bunch of smart tips for how to manage the elements and the unexpected. Learn how to care of your lenses, your camera body and yourself when you’re out in the field all day, from before sunrise till after sunset, and continue to make those creative pictures.

Great tips Corey, thanks for sharing! A couple of things I keep in my bag is a dehydration sachet or two and some imodium. I do a lot of work in Africa and they have come in use quite a bit, both for me and someone I’ve been working with. Thanks again, Ben

Your #TechTips really inspired me to get out there and make more photographs!
But first, I think I’m going to build my own checklist. I always have a checklist in my mind, and go through it each time I’m about to go out on an assignment, but I never really have one written down. Funny about that.
So thanks once again Corey!! 🙂 Thumbs up! Cheers.

Cory I watched your creative live class on action sports. The second segment shooting indoor BMX track you used two cameras. Qustion what wifi device did you use to fire the second camera. I thought it looked like the Nikon wt6 b but on checking it is not compatable withNikon D5. Any suggestion on what will work?

The WT-6A can trigger (synchronize) multiple cameras using wifi, but wouldn’t have the range and options of more conventional radio triggers (since the WT-6A also provides image transmission, camera setting controls and other features). Both the WT-6A and the previous WT-5A are compatible with the new D5.

Nikon also makes the WR-1 and WR-R10 transmitters/receivers that can also trigger remotes, using more conventional radio trigger controls and allowing for multiple radio channels.

However, on camera, during the class, we used the Pocketwizard Multimax Transceivers, one on the D5 he was shooting with set to transmit, and one mounted on the Nikon D4s remote set to receive, using a Pocket Wizard Nikon 10-pin prerelease cable to fire the camera.
