The More Gear Show topic this month is: What gear to choose for street-, travel-, or documentary photography?
Marco invited fellow street and event photographer Matt Hart from England as our guest to the show. Matt has been creating images for 40 years and he is also a Fujifilm ambassador and the founder of the Fujiholics Social Media group.
Clothes & Shoes:
The first gear choices that are discussed are clothes and shoes. It sounds like something that one should not put too much thought into, but the right shoes and clothes can make the difference between a pleasant and successful or a miserable day doing photography in the city.
Matt prefers a backpack over traditional camera bags most of the time these days. But he does also like the stylish GILLIS bags:

Aside of your camera brand and sensor size the preferred street and documentary focal lengths are between a 21mm and 50mm equivalent field of view in classic 35mm full frame terms. These focal lengths will ensure a realistic perspective similar to how we see with the human eyes. Weather sealing is an advantage and faster aperture lenses are not a must but will be at an advantage in low light situations.
