Anyone want to help change that?
Anyway, today I thought I'd share with you my camera bag and what's in it.
For Mothers Day this year, I was given a Jo Totes Camera Bag.
Isn't it just gorgeous. I found Jo Totes when I was looking for an attractive camera bag. I wanted something that would blend in, yet was stylish, when I went out with the family for the day. To the park, to a cafe, anywhere really.
But what's inside you ask ~
As you can see there are a number of compartments. These are all adjustable. Velcro base and sides allow you to adjust the compartments to suit your equipment.
Plus, as you can see there is a nifty little pocket on the inside, perfect for an iPad, which is an essential these days.
Last weekend I headed to our friends for a birthday party. They'd asked me to bring my camera. This is what was in my bag ::
My Camera :: A Nikon D60 (wanting to upgrade the body to a D7000)
Lenses, including ::
- Twin Lens Kit (18-55VR & 55-200VR)
- Nikon AF 50mm f/1.8D nikkor lens
My Other Camera :: Canon IXUS Point & Shoot
Personal items :: Purse, mobile phone & mints.
Accessories :: USB Card Reader, lens cover, iPad photo sticks, spare lens covers.
I also have a flash, but to be honest, I don't know how to use that effectively, yet.
So when my camera is not in use, I keep that and my lens hoods in the bag, where my purse would go. Then when I want to head out, I reduce the load by only taking what I need.
I leave all the accessories enclosed as they are all in the separate compartment at the front.
If / When I want to take my flash and purse, there is ample room above the velcro compartments for my purse to sit, without causing any damage.
So this is what is in my camera bag.
I'm loving my f1/8 lens the most at the moment and practising practising practising.
One day, maybe one day I'll be a professional photographer, in the meantime at least I've got a kick arse camera bag on my shoulder.
