In your bag No: 1365, Alex Moreán
A superb bag to get the weekend off with a bang. Alex shares his lens heavy kit which I don’t envy lugging around. But each to their own, come and see how Alex makes use of his gear.
My name is Alex Moreán, I’m 26 years old and currently live in Spain.
I´m a filmmaker, and also a photographer for fun.
Right now I’m working in the upcoming olympic channel but in June I’ll be travelling around the world to shoot a documentary film I’ve working on for some time.
I´m also a classic lenses junkie, so since I went mirrorless I´ve spent lots of time playing around with old glass with beautiful results
My basic gear (not including lighting and misc stuff like moleskines, gaffer tape, etc.) consists basically of:
– Sony A7SII – Though for stills it’s just “enough”, its low light capabilities made me chose this one over the RII model, since most of my shootings are maded under non controlled situations.
– Sony SEL2470Z 24-70mm f/4 ZA OSS Vario-Tessar T* – I like having at least one native auto focus lens, so I got this one and try not to use it unless I have no choice :)
– Nikon E 50 1.8 – I just love this lens, it’s texture, character, built quality… Damn.
– Cosina 24mm f/2.8 MC MACRO – I got this one in a trip I made to Japan. It was new, in its box, and was only around 40€. It’s a very rare lens and the image quality it provides is just amazing for the price.
– Tokina SD 70-210mm F4.0-5.6 – A solid, compact and almost lightweight telezoom I just need for long shots. The build and image quality is just perfect, taking in count that I got it for just 16€
– Mir-1B 37mm F2.8 – Oh god I love this lens. The flares, the build construction, the fact that it´s a well made Zeiss copy… The character is lovely so when I have plenty of time I just use this one for fun.
– Helios 44-2 58 2.0 – This is a tricky one. It can be very soft and hard to handle, but the swirly bokeh and instese character made me keep this one for my rond-the-world experience.
– Various adapters – just chunks of metal to keep everything in place.
– Joby Gorillapod Zoom – Convenient, handy, and very very light. This tough little thingy is the travelling filmmaker´s best friend. Period.
– A bunch of batteries and cards just because this Sony camera is a hungry beast.
– Tascam Dr05V2 + Audio Technica ATR3350 – for interviews and wildtracks.
– Joby BWW Pro Sling Strap – Yeah, I´m a huge Joby fan, and when I discovered this sling strap just had to get one. The pulley system is just genious.
– Thule Enroute Triumph 2.0 – This backpack is very low profile, lightweight, water resistant and has lots of pockets for all my toys. Since I got it I’ve been the happiest man alive :)
