    GF1 2 bodies
    8 batteries
    32Gb SD 12pcs
    EVF
    Leather Beanbag (with polyfoam insert )
    Made in China Tripod with ballhead, but damned light
    650nm, 720nm, and 900nm IR screw on

    9-18mm Oly
    14mm Panny
    45mm Panny
    45-150mm Oly
    180mm f2.8 Nikon with 2xTele

    Zero (means none) Laptop
    7" Android with 32Gb micro sd for Internet and watching movies

    All of this (except for the tripod) is stuffed into a leather bag which I stitched myself, with sheep leather-skin which I bought from Bangkok.
    The cost of the entire sheep-skin was a mere SG$13. This bag has lasted me for more than 4 years already.
    I stitched it roughly according to this design:
    Redefining Style

    And waterproofing it with "black-out" curtain cloth, at 5meters for SG$3 total.
    All the additional zips and velcros and straps cost less than SG$5.
    (I managed to find 50meters of 1 inch black webbing for SG$1.20 for the entire roll)

    My tripod sits in a deliberately dirty and old looking drawstring green canvas bag, which cost something like SG$2 for everything.
    My sewing machine (Japanese-made "Brother") was bought from Carrefour at SG$78 on sale (also about 4 years ago).
    And I have since made more than 15 bags/ pouches/ and made many other repairs, and modifications.

    If I were to buy a "Camera Bag", I'll consider using an "Angry Birds" commercially available kid's bag, sold in Bangkok for something like SG$4 or 5 tops. Yes, I also stitched my own padded inserts-bag at the whopping total cost of SG$2.

    At least, I'll be damned sure that no one will "eye" my flashy Angry-Birds bag.


    Cheers

    MP w/ 35, 75
    XPan w/ 45
    GX100
    Gorillapod
    Benro Travelangel
    Into an insert in my non-camera-backpack

    Took this to Japan last year, will use the same setup for my trip this year.

    Easier than the trip the previous year where I brought the 1V with TSE24, 35 1.4, 85 1.2.

    Then I can relax and enjoy the trip

    Michael - I like your bag choices! Most wonderful.
    No need to spend heaps of camera-bags, simple bags, and angry birds bag, very cool!

    I'm primarily a prime user so hard choices need to be made everytime i travel... some examples of setups I have taken with me.

    1DsII
    17-40L
    50 f1.2L
    85 f1.2L
    580EX II

    Weakness of this setup is the f4 lens. If I had the cash in those days i would go for the 16-35L II.

    D700
    20 f2.8D
    35 f2.0D
    50 f1.4G
    85 f1.4D

    Weakness is the lack of wide-angle zoom. But this is the lightest setup and you can stack your primes (20, 35 & 50 are small!) in your bag.

    D700
    17-35 f2.8D
    50 f1.4G
    85 f1.4D

    Not much weakness. Except that 17-35 is not very sharp in the corners.

    D700
    14-24 f2.8G
    35 f1.4G
    50 f1.4G
    85 f1.4G
    60 f2.8G Micro

    Weakness is the lack of an accompanying telephoto. Micro lens good if you do alot of travel food photography, I realized I don't need that.

    D700
    14-24 f2.8G
    35 f1.4G
    85 f1.4G
    180 f2.8D

    The most effective setup I have used. But weakness is you cannot mount filters of the 14-24G, and I did miss a good shot due to this reason.

    D700
    14-24 f2.8G
    24 f1.4G
    50 f1.4G
    85 f1.4G
    180 f2.8D

    Good setup, but you will miss the 35mm. Weakness is the overlap between 14-24 and confusion on which lens to use.

    I'm currently using a retrospective 30 with an additional lens pouch so the last 2 combos I have used in combination with all my clothes, batteries & travel items for 3-4 days stuffed inside. This bag is not to be messed with. 1 bag travelling can save alot of trouble and weight especially if you are taking the bus or doing city-hopping.

    My current thoughts are that you do not need a 50mm when you have a 35mm during travel. However when I shoot weddings there is a completely different mindset since 50mm can be very useful as a compromise between 35mm & 85mm.

    However there is a dilemma between 24mm & 35mm, both are very useful and completely different. Having an f1.4 and ability to mount filters is also very useful compared to the 14-24 f2.8 (indispensible since you will always need a UWA).

    3D2N family trip with relatives between KL / Penang:
    Canon 7D
    11-16 tokina
    17-50mm tammy non-VC (main lens)
    50mm 1.8
    55-250mm is
    Benro tripod
    Cleaning kit
    All in Fastpak 250.

    Lesson learnt: Main lenses were the 17-50 for day + 50mm 1.8 for night.
    Never set up the tripod, nor changed to the UWA or telescopic.

    It really boils down to what kind of trip is this ? Pure holiday with family, photo trip holiday, serious die hard specific go to there to do this photo trip. Let's leave I pay you to go there to do this trips.

    The more gear you take for a lower photo level trip the less enjoyable it is going to be plus if there is wife around there is the unhappiness factor to deal with. Never felt that a trip is so important as once in a life time - you can always go again it is only a photo op.

    Canon 60D
    15-85mm f/3.5-5.6
    70-200mm f/4L IS
    72mm CPL and step-up ring for the 70-200
    More than 32GB of SD cards
    Battery charger and socket adaptor
    No tripod
    No flash

    Going with a lightweight setup as I will be walking long distances at high altitude. (Jiuzhaigou and Huanglong in China) I suspect even extra 1kg of CF tripod is going to matter a lot under those conditions. Similarly, I'll bring ample memory cards as I won't be lugging around my laptop.

    Agreed. But I think the consequences are worse if you bring back beautiful pictures from a photo trip and the wife questions you on why you didn't bring her along...

    LOL, there is no win-win eh?
    Anyway I am contemplating to get a Tamron 18-270mm PZD just to keep my gear to the MINIMUM (ie just 1 lens), versus bringing Tamron 17-50 + Tamron 70-300 heavy lens.
    Anyone thinks that is a good idea?

    I realized a lot of people bring a lot of lenses and no spare bodies.
    Bring a second body is important especially going a long distance trip.

    For Digital
    D90 / D60 as backup
    18-70mm Nikkor
    17mm 3.5 Tokina AF
    35mm F2 AFD
    85mm F1.8 AFD
    70-300 Sigma

    For Film
    F90x / F801 as backup
    17mm F3.5 Tokina
    28-70mm 2.8 Nikkor
    85mm F1.8 AFD
    180mm F2.8 AFD

    A Seagull 4A-107/ Rolleiflex 3.5F is always there to shoot 6X6
    MF Film user. Nikon D800 works too.
