Even when you look at different photographers and what they carry, there are some recurring themes.

Jasa Landscape di Medan Camera – Believe it or not, most cameras are capable of taking a very good landscape shot. Even an iPhone can do this in the right conditions. With that said, the progression in camera ownership for landscape photographers usually goes like this:
Smart phone >> mirrorless >> cropped sensor DSLR >> full frame DSLR >> medium format camera >> large format camera.
The cost and quality rises through that progression and even most professional landscape photographers are content with their gear at the full frame DSLR stage.
Lenses – In landscape photography, the best lens is usually considered to be an ultra wide angle. Shooting on a full-frame DSLR, this will usually be in the range of 12mm through to 28mm. In practical terms, the classic landscape lens for a full frame is the 12-24mm f/2.8, versions of which are made by Canon and Nikon among others. If you shoot a crop frame DSLR, then it will be even wider. There is an interesting video here on using at 24-70mm lens that is worth a watch.

A circular polarizer for cutting down glare. A neutral density for reducing overall light hitting the sensor or film and an ND graduated filter (nd grad) for reducing the light from a portion of the scene (usually the sky). Most carry multiples of the last two types.

If you are not sure about what the histogram does, it shows you a representation of the light that your camera is capturing (in your view finder or LCD screen depending on your setup). The good news is that a histogram is usually a LOT more accurate about making a judgement on light than simply looking at the image on your LCD.
How do you read a histogram? Basically, on the viewfinder of your digital camera, the left side of the graph represents the shadows of the image and the right side, the highlights. The easiest way to remember that, is “black and white” in that order. If the graph is mainly towards the left, then the image will be dark. To the right and the image will be bright.
