Thought I should share this with you. This is the gear I am currently working with. Fujifilm X-Pro1 with 35mm f/1.4, iPad Pro, Microsoft keyboard, iPhone 6S Plus, a couple of Manfrotto tripods, also a big one off camera, and the Shoulderpod mount for the iPhone. The Fujifilm camera has an eyeFi card for wireless transfers of photos.

How did I shoot this photo? BlackBerry PRIV as backup. All of that lives in my bag. Count the cameras.


7 lenses.

Fuji XF 35mm f/1.4 - excellent choice! :)

only one device has no camera, the keyboard. I like you to put a comparing photo from the 90s :-)

Also ich komme nur auf 6 Kameras (fuji, 2*ipad, 2*iphone und 1*big-one). Oder hat letztere auch 2 Kameras on board?

1 + 3 * 2. Fuji, iPhone, iPad, PRIV.

Big one, off camera, is a tall Manfrotto.

Thanks :)

Do you have a comparison between the iPad Pro camera and the iPhone one in real life? On paper they should be the same - but some features are not listed for the iPad like Optical image stabilization, Optical image stabilization for video, Continuous autofocus video, ...
This would make it not a full replacement (for us) for the iPhone camera as the difference in optical image stabilization for video is noticeable between a 6S Plus and a 6 Plus.

No, I have not. I had not even shot a single video. Now I tried, the image looks pretty solid but I cannot tell if it has OIS. I assume it does not, if Apple does not list it. What I did was focus on something really close, start the video and then pan to the background. It adjusted the focus.

Thanks - this helps. So the iPad is no replacement for an iPhone when doing "shaking" videos - what a shame as this would be really great because of the big screen.
