Whats in your camera Bag?

Hi all,

Thought I would introduce this post after seeing it on any site, gets people talking

I have this lot crammed into my Tamrac Adventure 6 -

Olympus E510
Zuiko 14-42mm
Zuiko 40-150mm (mk1)
Hanimex TZ1 (fire via wireless of camera)
Sony HD8 Filter
Hoya circling polarizer Filter
Lens Hoods
Cleaning cloths
2 Spare batteries
Remote cable
Spare contact lenses lol
Manfrotto Modo attached to the bottom of the bag via lash straps

I'll need a bigger bag for when I get my 70 - 300 and 35mm Macro Zuiko's

Cheers
Garrie

Garrie, you will need a much bigger bag when you upgrade to an E3. I guess the offer bag will be big enough

Now I wonder when that will arrive?

Kind regards

Re: Whats in your camera Bag?

Ok, I use a Dakine Sequence to carry,

E-3 + 14-54
11-22
50-200
EC 1.4

Cokin RO-9 Filter Pouch containing;
3 Cokin ND Grads, 3 Cokin ND, 67 & 72mm Adaptors, 67>72 Step-Up Ring, MF-1 (copy), 72mm Hoya Screw-in Polarising Filter.

Cokin P Series Adaptor with Cap

Weston Master V + Invercone

WhiBal

Microfiber Cloth
3 x Spare batteries (copies)
RM-1 Remote
RM-CB1 Remote (copy)
Hot Shoe Spirit Level
Mini Multi-Tool
2 x Spare CF Cards (2Gb & 1Gb, 2Gb in Camera)

Cleaning Stuff;

Lens Cloth
Small Lens Pen
Standard Lens Pen
Cheap Blower
ProPhot Wipes

Rucksack Cover
Lightweight Waterproof Trousers and Cycle Jacket
Neoprene Fishing Gloves (fold Back fingers)

Velbon CF 631 Pro Tripod c/w Giottos MH-1001 Ball-Head.

Other stuff that I don't usually need, FL-50, Flash leads, Wireless Triggers, HLD-4 Battery Grip, Reflectors, Radio Shutter Release, various other lens adapters etc, etc stay in a Tamrac Pro 8 gadget bag.


In complete contrast to the 'Everything but the kitchen sink' approach sometimes I just take the E-3 +11-22 in a CCS Kangaroo Pouch and the Filter Pouch plus 2 spare batteries and 2x Spare CF Cards. Again with the Velbon tripod.

I still have space for an EC-2.0, if I go for the 70-300 instead then I'll carry it or the 50-200 depending on circumstances.

Hmm - I'm looking for a new bag as my Lowepro Slingshot 100 I bought for my E500 won't take my E3 + bits.

Would you consider a swap?

Unhappy Re: Whats in your camera Bag?

I'm desperate for a new bag. I just can't make up my mind which.

It needs to take E-510, twin lens kit, EC-14, 70-300, Fuji E-900 plus all the spares one carries.

I had thought of the Slingshot 200 but some folk thought I would be better off elsewhere.

Suggestions folks please - an all weather one would be helpful.

Regards. Barr1e

Edit - plus monopod (sometimes).

Re: Whats in your camera Bag?

Depends which bag

The 'small' bag (Crumpler) usually just has the E-3, 12-60, EX-14, and 500D close up filter (77mm and step ring).

Covers most eventualities.

The Big bag approach is usually the E-3, 12-60, EX-14, and 500D close up filter (77mm and step ring), plus the FL-50R, and either the Sigma 150mm Macro (New arrival this week) or the 70-300mm depending what i am shooting.

But i think the 70-300m will be being sold next week as the 150mm Macro and 1.4 perform well together.

Re: Whats in your camera Bag?

Never the same combo twice! It's most fun to decide on the day! This morning: E-400, 14-42mm, Olympus Zuiko 50mm f1.4, Jupiter 9 85mm f2, two batteries.

It's a small bag.

Re: Whats in your camera Bag?

mmm! So far no flasks and sandwiches you must all photograph near to a pub!

I have the big slingshot 300 which will take virtually everything I have. It is huge. But then you can't lift it when it is full. So I'm no longer filling it.

So I tend to put in two bodies one with the 50/200 for birds and mammals and the other with a 105 sigma macro for butterflies/flowers and then put a couple of lenses in for random situations 12-60 and 50 macro. Plus the EX25 extension rings. Batteries, cards and a water bottle. I want a really long lens for birds soon.

I tend to use a monopod and not a tripod in the countryside and that gets carried sometimes with a camera on... plus binoculars.

To be honest the way I look after walking a few miles with that lot I'm not welcomed in pubs.

Peter
