Bag Shot – What’s in your bag?

It’s always interesting to see what is in someones camera bag
Different people have different styles, so looking into someones bag is an intimate view of how they work. I like bag shots and I like posting them, as they help me to remember what I am doing and how I am shooting.
Which is why I do it from time to time.
But I also really like looking into other peoples bags, I mean who doesn’t? So, this is an opportunity to have a look at what I have in my bag at the moment.

So this is what is in my bag today, as you can see I keep it to a minimum, mainly because it is too bloody hot and I don’t want to lug a great big bag around. But the essentials are there, well, most of them.

So, what about you? What have you got in your bag? Tell us, or even better, show us.

    A bag will usually contain clues to how a person operates. Almost like a contact print of a person’s resources.

    If I carry a camera bag (which is rarely, as I prefer to carry only ONE camera+lens in my hand), it’s a small one from Lowepro that will take either my Leica kit (M8 + 15/4.5 Heliar, 28/2.8 Biogon, 50/2 Planar), or any two cameras out of these: Leica M8 + one lens, Olympus E-P1 + 20/1.7, Yashica Electro 35, Contax T.

    Weekdays, I always carry ONE camera in my briefcase (more won’t fit). This will be any of the above, although lately it has been the Contax T mostly.

      Great. Thanks for sharing with us. Good choice on the Contax.

    Bags are weird. I have nine different Domke bags and to date I still never truly found one that is perfect. (I have several military bags converted with the same luck) A bag that works great today is useless tomorrow, especially if I add a new piece of get or get rid of some–worse than having NAS.

    For work however I have a tan D4AF that holds a D3 and all f/2.8 glass. For the Coast Guard, I have the same bag only in navy color. When out with my X100 and Electro 35 I have a Domke camera satchel 803.

    (Then there’s my 804, F1, F2, F3, F6, two F4’s and a few others I forgot nd never use, and a Lowepro that I hate.)
