What’s In My Camera Bag?

I get asked what’s in my camera bag a lot! So I thought I’d write a mini blog post about what gear I use.

I was a canon shooter for years but I changed to Nikon about a year ago because I find Nikon suits my way of shooting more than Canon did. I don’t think one camera system is better than the other, it all comes down to personal preference. 

I currently shoot on a Nikon D750. It’s full frame, light and does what I need it to do. I also have Nikon F80 film camera. 

When it comes to photography I’d always suggest spending a bit more money on quality lenses instead of using a kit lens. The Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 is on my camera 99% of the time. I absolutely love it! It’s perfect for portraits, landscapes and travel photography. The other two lenses I use are prime lenses. The Nikon AF-S 50mm f/1.4 G and Nikon AF-S 35mm f/1.4 G IF-ED N. 

It goes without saying that you need batteries to power your equipment. I have two Nikon EN-EL15 lithium-ion batteries to power my camera.

I have quite a few memory cards but the majority of the time there are two SanDisk 32GB Extreme PRO 300MB/s SDHC UHS-II cards in my camera.

I’m not too crazy about camera straps but when I use one I use the Slide from Peak Design with anchors on both my camera bodies which is great to quickly detach the strap from my camera.

I use a Manfrotto Befree 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod with Ball Head for landscapes and seascapes where I need a longer exposure otherwise I shoot the majority of my photos handheld.

Another thing I have in my bag is is a small portable hard drive where I keep the RAW files from shoots and jpegs of the edited images. I edit everything in Adobe Lightroom Classic CC on a maxed out 2017 13” MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.

There are so many Camera Bag on the market and lets be honest with ourselves most of them are terrible. I chose a camera bag that doesn’t look like a camera bag but has everything you’d look for in a camera bag. It’s the rucksack by Brevitē which is extremely comfortable and fits everything I need.

I hope that answers all the questions you may have about whats in my camera bag.
