Moken / Phuket / Burma Shooting Gear List


As promised, here is the gear list I brought with me. I post this because many of you will notice that I have several new lenses, housings, and gear that were required to make these shots happen. I know this will answer at least some of the questions you have about how certain shots were done. I also need to update my main gear page soon, because I will continue to use much of this gear in the water.

Surprisingly, I used everything except my tripod, which gets a ton of use at home.

The Ikelite with 5Dii and 14mm 2.8 lens got most of the work when I was diving. There are some real differences between the Ikelite and SPL and I will outline these soon.
