Equipment - Phil Mann Photography

Despite being relatively slow to move to digital imaging, I no longer own a film camera other than a Pentax ME Super which is used for occasional urban photography. My main camera is now a Nikon DSLR. I did flirt with Fujifilm cameras for a few years but, although I loved their looks and small size, I always found myself turning back to the DSLR; I guess I'm just more comfortable using it.

Whatever camera I am using, I generally attempt to achieve the result I am aiming for 'in camera' and, so, keep post processing and adjustments down to a minimum. I do not suggest that this is the ‘right way’ to work but it is certainly right for me.


My current camera kit consists of:

Nikon D850

16-35mm f4 zoom lens

24-70mm f2.8 zoom kens

70-200mm f4 zoom lens

24-120mm f4 zoom lens

105mm f2.8 macro lens


Leica Q


Lee circular landscape polarizing filter

Lee 0.3, 0.6 and 0.9 graduated neutral density filters

Lee Big Stopper

Cable release

Manfrotto 055CXPRO4 tripod with 410 geared head or MHXPRO-BHQ6 Ball head

Three Legged Friend 'Brian' tripod
