What I Use
|"What I call my hero camera," says Zack Arias, "is a Phase One IQ140 medium-format system. But then anything that's run-and-gun or on-the-fly, I use Fuji cameras. I have the Fuji X100S and the Fuji X-Pro1. I got a Fuji X100, just as a carry-around camera, and that camera really started my love of street photography. I started walking around and shooting full jobs with the Fuji, and then I did a couple of jobs for Fuji themselves. I thoroughly enjoy working with those cameras. I love my Phase, I love the image quality that the Phase gives me—I've never been able to have such amazing digital image quality before—but I love my Fujis; they're my favorite cameras.
"With lenses on the Phase," he continues, "I'm using a 55mm leaf-shutter Schneider lens and an 80mm Schneider leaf-shutter lens. For the Fuji, I have the 14mm, the brand-new 23mm and the
Fuji 35mm ƒ/1.4. That's my favorite lens that I own right now. My very favorite lights that I own, that I use all the time, are Elinchrom Quadras. I have the A heads, with the faster flash duration. I use LumoPro LP180 flashes for smaller flash work, and then in the studio I have Paul C. Buff Einstein and AlienBees lights."
