I use two different Nikons. An FN-2 for studio shots, and an F-80, that has both manual and auto-focus settings for moving animals and other outdoor shots. High end telephoto, standard, and macro lenses, along with electronic shutter controls, a dedicated strobe flash unit for each camera, Bogen Ball-Adjust Head tripod, and a monopod -- single leg adjustable support -- complete my gear. For indoor studio shooting I have various cloth backdrops with a stand, studio strobe photo lights and light reflectors, stands for the lights, a lightbox with its own stand, and several mini-strobes with different colored "gels" for color effects.
