    Default What do you Pack in Your Camera Bag

    Just curious what do you all put in your camera when you go out for a shoots. I sort of pack every thing. Kind of heavy when I go out.

    i will choose what lens i would be using..

    as for other other equipment:
    1. flash (if necc)
    2. batteries (for 1.)
    3. memory cards (more cards for longer shoots)
    4. monopod/tripod/ladder (depending on situation)

    lastly..
    bringing alot of things? use a smaller bag to reduce the amount of things that you can bring? or use a backpack to distribute the weight around?

    Hmm, this a tough one.
    1) My camera of course.
    2) Tamron 18-50mm f/2.8 attached to body
    3) Either 55-200mm or 70-300mm as a telephoto zoom
    4) Always my Nikkor P.C. 105mm f/2.5
    5) Could bring a 35mm prime if needed
    6) Flash if I am shooting indoors
    7) NeWater bottle
    8) Extra batteries
    7) Memory card

    I am always having indecision on what lenses to take out of the dry-cab.

    For me, I love light and compact so i can enjoy the shooting itself

    DSLR
    50mm lens
    1 extra batt and CF card

    Or either a PnS only (with extra batt / CF card)

    I like to travel light and what I carry will depend on what I plan to shoot. But I will definately carry spare battries, spare CF cards and a lens pen.

    ah~ the feet stabliz isn't anything to be proud of it's kinda hard to pack in.
    wait till you see the food wrapper at the back.

    anyway, I usually pack in 5-6 rolls of extra film if I don't bring the stabliz out to play.

    Depends on what I shoot, the "mission load" varies.

    Normal shoot: 1 body, 2 or 3 lenses (WA/standard/tele), 1 flash, + 1 spare set of batts.
    Paid shoot: 2 bodies + 2 flashguns + 2 spare sets of batts per piece of equipment.
    Bad weather: + Raincoat for camera.

    Other essentials: Basic cleaning kit (lenspen+blower). Facial wipes/wet tissues/regular tissues. Drinking water. Small clipboard + writing instruments. Small torch.
