Photograpy Gear that I Use

Pratap's gear, 2013. Missing: 24-105L cos I used it to shoot this :) Let us face it. Men love gear talk. Be it cars, mobiles or hi-fi audio systems. We love to discuss gear. So I won’t be surprised if you are curious to know what gear I shoot with. In this page, I go one step further and also list the gear I have used in the past. And yes, I have used a lot of gear. Does that qualify me to give you gear advice? Actually no. Because I stopped keeping track of what is new in the market ever since I saturated my camera bag. I am happy with the gear I own, and my acquisition rate is much lower now. But I will be glad to answer questions about gear I have owned in the past.
