Camera Gear/Lenses

I’ve been scouring Amazon, B&H, Adorama, etc.  A lot of deals for gear are actually bundles.  I have to tell you, in my opinion, you are FAR better off purchasing a camera body alone, and then purchase the lenses separately.  The lenses offered in bundled packages are better utilized as paper weights.  With that said, feel free to look around Amazon, etc for those deals, but I don’t recommend a bundle.

The Nikon d5200 is the camera body I’ve used for the past 3 years or so.  This is a great deal, as I think I purchased mine for around $700.  It’s a crop sensor, but I’ve only recently felt that I’ve outgrown it.  If you’re only a few years into your photography journey and mostly take pictures outdoors or in decent indoor light, this body is a good choice.  Every picture on my Instagram accounts was taken with this body.

Here’s the Nikon d7200, also a crop sensor, but has a few more bells and whistles than the 5200.  It’s currently $200 off.

I’d be lying if I said that a full frame wasn’t on my Christmas wish list!  The d750 is $200 off.

And of course, the much-loved Nikon d810 is $300 if you’ve had your eye on it for awhile.

Here’s the Nikon 50mm 1.8G, a nice little starter lens and it’s $43 off.

 

Full Disclosure – I know nada about Canon lenses.  But here’s a couple on sale, but please be sure to do your homework.  I’m not recommending these, because I honestly have never touched a Canon before.

This is a Canon 50mm 1.8, which is a great little starter lens.  It’s $15 off.

And here’s a 70-200 that is $150 off.

At this time, none of the Sigma Lenses appear to be discounted.  I checked Tamron and a bunch more Nikkor and Canon lenses and didn’t see much on sale.

SIGMA Lenses!!

Found this on the ClickinMoms site!  Sigma lenses, yeah!

Great savings here!  So, my favorite all-time lens is the Sigma Art 18-35 1.8.  No, it’s not on sale, but it’s Full Frame sister/equivalent IS.  The 24-35 f2.  I adore my sigma and probably 90% of my pictures are made with that lens. (And my d5200 body, that I mentioned above.)

We’ve all heard the buzz about the 35 and 50 Art.  I think they have an 85 that has yet to be released too.  I threw in a 105 Macro (I know the Nikkor is highly reviewed, I’m not sure how this one stacks up.)  Also, the 70-200, which I know, when I bought my Tamrom 70-200, the Tamron was thought to have a slight edge.  So, as always, do your research.  But Sigma makes nice glass, so worth checking out!

Zenfolio websites for Photographers

Zenfolio is who I use for my photography business website.  I did it all myself (don’t judge, it’s terribly outdated since I’ve spent my time on this website lately…) But I’ve used Zenfolio for 4 or 5 years and super happy, wouldn’t switch.

17hats Studio/Business Management Tool

When I was running a photography business, I tested out many different tools to management my clients, contracts, payments, etc.  I tried Tave, StudioCloud, Pixifi, and probably many more I can’t remember.  Finally I found 17hats and it was by far the easiest to use and had everything I needed.  Now, unfortunately, I take on so few clients that I no longer have an account, but I would highly recommend using 17hats.  (Not an affiliate link – but if you ask around, any active user will be able to provide you with one, and they’ll receive one month free if you sign up, so definitely worth it!)

Iris Works Studio Management

I looked really hard at Iris when I was researching management tools.  As mentioned above, I ultimately went with 17hats.  However, Iris was brand new at the time and was lacking the functionality that I needed (this was probably 2-3 years ago.) I’ve heard good things recently, so worth checking out.
