Tony and Chelsea were recently on a trip to Machu Picchu, Peru which is a superb destination for photography and so they decided to share the camera gear they brought with them.

Check out the detailed list below.

What’s in Chelsea Northrup’s camera bag: (keeping it cool and elegant with mirrorless)

  • Lowepro Sport Bag – blue, small and very practical
  • Sony 70-200mm F4
  • Rokinon 24mm F1.4
  • Sony 28-70mm F3.5-5.6
  • Sony A7R II
  • Mitakon 50mm F0.95

What’s in Tony Northrup’s camera bag: (keeping it old school DSLR)

  • Langly Alpha Pro Camera Bag – got to say it does look very cool – “like a World War II rucksack” Tony says
  • Canon 5DS R
  • Sigma 24-105mm F4 IS – super sharp but heavy
  • Canon 16-35mm F4 IS
  • Panasonic GH4 – for video
  • Panasonic 14-140mm F/3.5-5.6
  • Rhode SmartLav+ microphones
  • Lumsing USB Power Bank
  • Dell XPS13 – laptop
  • Joby GorrilaPod Tripod
  • Manfrotto 190CX Pro Tripod
  • Paul C. Buff Vagabond Mini – normally used to power strobes on the go but now it will be used to power up the laptop, phone
  • Extra batteries and a ton o memory cards
By the way, if you’re thinking about bringing your tripod to Machu Picchu, you can only get in if you pay a $300 tripod fee, according to Tony.
Is there a Mirrorless vs DSLR battle going on in the Northrup family? We think not. It’s just a very appropriate usage of gear when travelling meaning that Chelsea chose the smaller and less heavy alternative and Tony chose the bigger and heavier alternative because he would have an easier time at carrying it.
Also we’re quite sure they will soon share a video comparing impressions of how it was to carry around the 2 different systems when traveling.
