    3) Batteries (lots of them)
    4) SD cards (a couple of them)
    5) umbrella and perhaps my lucky red cap.
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    I typically pack light. The lighter the better. Unless I know I have a need for more equipment, I just hand hold my dSLR with my preferred lens mounted.

    Actually those are in my side pouch as well as an extra UV filter and body/lens caps. Once kena, will always remember.

    In my other pouch is this.

    Got a few sets since that time the Adidas KOTR, they were selling for $10 a set. Good for pains, muscle cramps and surprisingly works for insect bites as well. Too bad event got cancelled but everyone still got paid.

    Oh the table tripod is a must for me . Sturdy ( I carry big heavy lenses ) , very easy to use - macro, tele whatever . With it I may not need a flash for many shots . And the iPad mini tho screen resolution is not great is light n portable , goes everywhere and with downloaded pix makes a long flight that much shorter. I will do e editing n other heavy stuff on the iMac back home . Also the mini is great for travel or even for daily life eg emails , surfing , candy crush , angry birds whatever etc . I have e regular ipad but find the mini much more usable owing to its portability n it fits well into e billington so that its not left out somewhere where it could get nicked . U shld try it. Anyway it's a personal choice

    1- Water Bottle (very impt to me)
    2- Umbrella
