    Show us your bag/purse/etc.

    I've seen these threads elsewhere, mostly on tech forums and I thought that it would be interesting. Post what you typically carry with you, whether it's a purse, man bag, backpack, etc.

    I try to bring this with me wherever I go:



    • Lowepro Flipside 400 bag
    • Canon 7D
    • Canon EF 24-105L lens
    • Canon EF 70-300L lens
    • Canon EF-S 10-22 lens
    • Canon 50 lens
    • Canon 430EX II flash
    • Filters
    • Shutter cable
    • Batteries
    • Garmin GPS
    • Flashlight
    • Survival knife
    • Pocket knife
    • Smith & Wesson .45 1911
    • Wetfire packets
    • Alcohol whipes
    • Flint
    • Cellphone
    • Keys / Paracord

    That's for when the AF fails on a fast moving target, turns it into a slow-moving target and AF works better.
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    Ok, here's my camera bag, the Tamrac 5588 Expedition 8x:



    And here's what it holds:

    In the main compartment:

    Canon 5D Mark II
    Canon 7D

    BlackRapid RS4 Camera Strap

    Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS
    Canon EF 17-40mm f/4
    Canon EF 28-70mm f/2.8 L
    Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS
    Canon EF 24mm f/2.8
    Canon EF 40mm f/2.8
    Canon EF 50mm f/1.4
    Canon EF 85mm f/1.8

    Kenko 1.4x Teleconverter
    (3) umbrella swivels
    58mm ND filter
    77mm B+W ND filter
    77mm B+W CPOL
    77mm Singh-Ray Vari-N-Duo
    Various step-up rings
    Extra body/rear element caps
    Radio receiver bags

    Tascam DR-07 audio recorder
    Windscreen
    Gaffer's tape

    In the outer pockets:

    Wired remote trigger
    Wireless trigger RC-1
    Lens cleaning cloths
    Extra DSLR batteries
    Several memory cards
    Case with flash trigger cables (miniphone and RJ11)
    (2) Gray cards
    Fishing tackle case (see below)

    In the fishing tackle case:

    Cyber Commander
    Cybersync CSRB Receiver
    (4) Cybersync CSRB+ Receivers
    (2) Cybersync CST Transmitters
    (2) umbrella swivels
    (6) Hotshoes with miniphone jacks
    (5) Miniphone to Mono adapters
    (2) Miniphone optical slaves
    Various studs and other small accessories

    Note: The Canon 7D and 17-55mm f/2.8 IS are not shown because I used them to take the picture. The Canon 40mm f/2.8 is hiding underneath the Canon 50mm f/1.4 (upper right compartment), and the Kenko teleconverter is underneath the Canon 24mm f/2.8 (upper left).

    I also usually carry a rolling suitcase with monolights and a shoe-mount flash case (holds 5 flashes, extra batteries, gels, etc).

    And no, I don't know what it means to "pack light." ;-)

    Show us your bag/purse/etc.

    There is no 'typically'. I've got two Toploaders, four backpacks, and two utility belts for various cases/pouches. My gear varies based on what I plan to shoot, and the bag(s) are selected to accommodate the chosen gear with as little empty space as possible.

    I suppose if 'typical' means what I almost always have with me, it's this...

    I'm not showing a picture of my bag, because all my stuff doesn't fit in it anymore. I am, however, looking to get a new one soon, a backpack one instead of an over the shoulder bag that I have now. Here's my kit now, but I am planning on replacing the 18-55mm and the 55-250mm with a 24-105mm and 100-400mm. I am looking for a bag that will carry all of that gear.


    From Left to Right
    - Canon 50mm f/1.4
    - Canon 18-55mm f/3.5-4.5
    - Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8
    - Canon 55-250mm f/4.5-5.6
    - Canon 100mm Macro f/2.8
    - Canon T3i with Canon Speedlite 320EX and Canon BG-E8 Battery Grip

    I'd consider a Lowepro Flipside 400 AW. Holds a gripped body, white zoom, 4-5 black lenses, you'll have a little room to grow. Tripod holder, all-weather cover, opens from the 'front' (against your back) for more security and not setting the side that goes against your back down in the dirt.

    +1 for the Lowepro Flipside 400 AW. John suggested it for me a few years back and I still use it and love it! Of course, it's not as full as it used to be but even back then with all of my lenses in it, it was very comfortable to wear on my back during a hike. Being able to just slide it around to the front of me to change lenses without having to take it completely off & lay it on the ground was so quick and handy ...not to mention cleaner!

    Haha, so far I've used it only for target practice, however it is for protection.

    I agree, it's an excellent bag and it's what I use with all of the gear I posted. It's excellent for taking it off of my shoulders and swinging it around to my front side and gain quick access to lenses, etc.
