What’s in the Camera Bag(s)?

Probably the question most frequently asked is ‘what gear do you use'? Cameras come and go especially in this digital age but the following is current as of Sep 2018. I’ll stick to the basic camera bodies, lenses, camera bags, tripods and filters.

Lowepro Flipside 200 AW 11
Thinktank 30 V2.0 Digital Holster


Lee 100 filter system including 0.3, 0.6, 0.9 & 1.2 hard, medium & soft ND grads, a couple of Lee 0.6 & 0.9 'reverse' ND grads, Lee ND filters including 0.9 Pro Glass, 6x 'Little' Stopper and a 10x 'Big' Stopper, and lastly a rarely used B+W 105mm Circular Polariser. The beauty of a filter manufacturer like Lee is that one filter system can basically be used on any of my cameras and lenses regardless of manufacturer or format.
