Essential Gear or What's Just Too Cool to Live Without


Moose Peterson has received many awards for his wildlife, landscapes, and aviation photography. While still very much a practicing photographer, he also finds time to teach and write. In this almost-two-hour video, he explains his choice of camera and shares his choice of essential kit items, everything from his lenses to the WT-5A wireless transmitter for remote control of his Nikon D4 camera from an iPad or iPhone.

In an unusual approach to lecturing, Peterson starts with questions from his audience, while a montage of his photographs provides an illuminating backdrop to the very practical and entertaining answers. And as he unpacks his camera bag, we gain insight into his photographic method and his embrace of the emerging field of DSLR video.
