Can someone please explain how in the world is it possible to own all this equipment?

Several of my personal friends have multiple 1D series bodies, a 300mm f2.8, 500mm f4, 800mm f5.6, 200-400/560mm f4, 70-200mm IS2, 24-105mm f4, and a dedicated macro lens as well as a Gitzo CF tripod and a Wimberley head. And also a 1.4 and a 2x teleconverter.
Easily over $50,000 of gear per photographer. This is basically the typical kit that a pro wildlife photographer will have.

Considering that, the gear that this guy in the video has doesn't seem to be far-fetched, by any means.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

The gear pro photographers own can be shown by the equation
Requirement/budget

The gear amateurs own can be shown by the equation
Desire/budget

Therefore you or I can't measure our gear needs by looking at what other people use, it's a pointless exercise which will leave us in debt or depressed.
