What's In My Bag: Bob Krist's Lightweight Kit For 4K & Stills

Bob Krist is one of the most prolific travel photographers in the world. In his long career shooting for the likes of National Geographic, Travel & Leisure, Islands and others, he has always been a "one-man-band", operating on his own. He has evolved from being a still shooter to being a true multi-media content creator.

Today, Krist is likely to be shooting a combination of 4K video and still photos and because he's still working alone in the field, it's paramount that his gear be as lightweight and compact as it is capable of delivering perfect imagery. In this video, Krist walks us through the essential gear that he takes around the world and why each item makes the cut.
