In your bag No: 1450, Danny Kaye
Today we have one of the cutest bags I have seen in the series. But looks can be deceiving, this bag is much stronger than it looks. Check it out.

Hi, I am a lecturer at Nottingham Trent University lecturing mainly in film, photography and sound.

I have far too much kit and too many bags, but, we have recently bought a house in France and I have travelled to it by air several times. To add to the usual airline problems we try not to take anything but hand luggage. I found myself wanting a bag that will stand up to air travel, will fit in the hand baggage space and is hard shelled. Sadly all the decent bags seem to be really expensive and just look like they will be stolen at the first opportunity. So I was stumped what to do, then we went on holiday with family and a nephew had a Trunki.

Some high-density foam and I have a camera bag that cost less than £50, is fairly showerproof  and is strong enough to sit on.

In the bag are

Nikon D600 or D810

Nikkor 20mm f/2.8D

Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro

Nikkor 24-85mm f/2.8-4

Kenko 1.4x converter

Kenko 2x converter

Metz 36 AF-5 flash

Metz 34 CS-2 slave flash

Nikon WR-T10 radio remote

Nissin SC-01 flash shoe cable

Cam Ranger

Manfrotto 330 flash bracket

Light Work Studio Var ND

Circular polarisers, batteries, leads etx


I also carry a 3 Legged Thing, Eric tripod.
