What's In My Camera Bag: Photography Gear List (2020)

What's in My Camera Bag.  Gabriella Viola Photography Gear List

In this post, I'll be listing the gear I currently use to capture and create my images.

Some things I consider when buying gear:

  • Price. I'm not looking to break the bank, which is why I often go with third party lenses like Tamron.

  • Weight and size. I prefer gear that is relatively light and comfortable enough to walk around with, hike with, and travel with.

  • Ease of use.

  • Above all else, quality.

It's worth mentioning that you don't need tons of expensive equipment to take beautiful photos. Although the right equipment can help take your work to the next level, it's not the gear that makes the photographer.

So with that being said, here's what's in my camera bag!

in this post. These are products that I use and recommend.


Nikon D750

Nikon D750

In 2018, I upgraded from the Nikon D5300 DX to the Nikon D750 FX DSLR. I have to say, I absolutely love it. It's a full-frame camera, that has two memory card slots, built-in wifi, and does well in low light situations. It's also relatively lightweight compared to other full-frame cameras, and of course, it takes beautiful photos.


Tamron 24-70mm f2.8

Tamron 24-70 lense

Wide Angle Zoom Lens

The Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 is my all-around go-to lens. It's a third party lens and about half the price of Nikon and Canon's 24-70mm lenses. However, it doesn't skimp on quality. I love this lens because it's versatile, ultrasharp, image-stabilized, has nice bokeh, and does great in low light.
