I decided to pull my camera bag from the back of my car today to put together a short video detailing what I carry in it. From the look of this video you’d think I’m a pack mule when it comes to what I carry in my camera bag. In actuality this is what I have with me when I head out, but not necessarily exactly what I’ll hike with. Granted there are times I’ll hike with all of this, but in many instances I’ll pare down what I carry based on what I’m photographing. As you’d imagine 90 seconds isn’t a lot of time so there are a couple things I missed mentioning including a spare battery for my cable release, another circular polarizer and a lens cloth. Also for the record since I seemed to have misspoke, my back up camera body is a Canon 1D Mark II.
A little on the video… it was recorded with a Nokia N95 cell phone on loan with surprisingly great image quality. The reason for the 90 second limit is I wanted to try out Flickr’s new support for video.
