EDIT:

Not looking for NY advice. I've been many times. Who wants to meet up, ferchrissakes...


-------------------

Just figured I'd throw it out there that I am going to NYC from Oct 4-11. If anyone in the area wants to try to do a meet-up let me know. Planning to have basically no plans, walking around the city taking photos the whole trip.

Taking photos in your off time?!?

Why not just enjoy the trip.

That's the entire reason I'm going. I don't know about the rest of you bums, but I enjoy shooting personal work. It's the reason I started shooting commercial stuff, then portraits, and now weddings. NYC is my favorite city, and I love just walking around and exploring places I've never been, seeing all the interesting people, enjoying the fantastic October weather, eating all sorts of awesome food, smelling the best and worst the city has to offer up, as I stroll around with my camera in tow, snapping away at the things I find interesting.

I go to NY about once a year, and the last time (and the first time) I went by myself specifically to take photos was in 2008 after graduating from college. I imagine I will take far fewer images this time and have a far greater keeper-rate than I did back then.

I think people call it 'street photography' or something weird like that.

Haven't totally decided on that front... probably D3S and/or D800, 24 1.4, 50 1.4, 105 2.8 micro... Sort of considering renting a 200 f/2 there, I've been curious about that lens for a while.

The first dead giveaway that you are not a New Yorker will be the boat anchor 200 f2 strapped to the Hubble telescope around your neck! Get yourself a sexy little street camera with a stylish bag and then we'll talk.

Send a PM when you come around. I'd be up for some street shooting. Haven't really done it in a long while.

200 f2 is freakin heavy. I can't imagine lugging that thing around for some street shooting. I always ask to use it at B&H just for fun lol.

Last time I was in NYC, I took my wife's little Nikon point and shoot and captured a few nice photos. With all the walking we did, the last thing I wanted was a heavy camera with me.

I'm contemplating the D800 for during the day / D3S for night. Won't be bad walking around with three primes on me. I once walked all over the city with a LowePro backpack full of gear and a tripod and crazy ND filters and stuff. Got some cool shots but it was so exhausting I almost didn't want to take any photos at all. Going light is definitely better.

I'll take the x100 as well and some of the time I'll just use that. Particularly if I'm going to be riding a bike in the park in the mornings or something. Hell, I might just use it the whole time, who knows.

Be careful when walking with so much equip in NYC - there are cases that thieves steal only lenses off the body, cause they know how much they're worth.

Travel light, leave the big guns at home.

IN NYC you have to walk the entire day so bringing the D3s and D800 is a bad idea, the Fuji X100 is the best option for this trip.

Folks I've been to NYC every year for the last 10+ years I know what I'm doing lol. I appreciate the concern but I know how to get around town without hauling all my gear. I'll be stashing extra gear where I'm staying so I can swap gear as appropriate for a given outing (ie d800 or x100).

Even if I did decide to rent the 200 I would only use it for a couple of specific things (I want to try it for a portrait session or two). That is not a walk-about lens. Nor will I carry multiple bodies at once.

And the only reason the 200 even popped into my head is that they are readily available in NYC, I don't have access to that kind of glass in San Antonio.

Again, I'll probably be walking around with the d800 or d3s but not both and I'll likely have one prime on camera and two in a discreet shitty messenger bag (not my TT lens changer). All light lenses, could walk all day every day with them. I've done this before for 10 days in 2008.

Kurtis... Bringing a camera to NYC is not safe, better off with a sketch pad.
