What’s In My Bag?

I didn’t see anyone ask, so i’ll tell you anyway.

For a detailed rundown, check out my profile at kit.com

Currently, I run one of 4 bags and 1 travel case:

  • Lowepro Flipside Trek BP 450 AW
  • Lowepro Freeline BP 350 AW
  • Chrome Industries Niko Camera Messenger Sling
  • ONA Bags “The Prince Street” Messenger
  • Pelican Air 1555 with TrekPak
  • Pelican Air 1525 with TrekPak

For cameras and lenses, I use a Fujifilm X-T2 Graphite Silver Edition with Fujifilm MHG-XT2 extended grip or VPB-XT2 Vertical Power Booster. The lenses I have:

  • Fujifilm XF 100-400mm ƒ/2.8R OIS WR
  • Fujifilm XF 50-140mm ƒ/2.8R OIS WR
  • Fujifilm XF 2x Teleconverter XF2TC WR
  • Fujifilm XF 16-55mm ƒ/2.8R WR
  • Fujifilm XF 10-24mm ƒ/4R OIS
  • Fujifilm XF 56mm ƒ/1.2R
  • Fujifilm XF 35mm ƒ/1.4R
  • Fujifilm XF 23mm ƒ/1.4R
  • Fujifilm XF 16mm ƒ/1.4R WR
  • Samyang 12mm ƒ/2R CS

Filters and polarizers: Formatt-Hitech Firecrest 100mm Drop-In Filter Holder with 82mm Firecrest circular polarizer, Haida NanoPro 3-stop, 6-stop, 10-stop and 15-stop glass ND Filters, 3-stop Soft Grad and 3-stop Reverse Grad glass ND Filters. I also use B+W Kaesemann HTC Circular Polarizers, 77mm 3-, 6- & 10-stop MRC ND Filters and UV Filters for lens protection.

For convenience, I use Peak Design straps, specifically the Cuff v2, Leash v2, SlideLITE v2, Slide v1 and Capture Clip v3.

For stability, I generally depend on the Benro Adventure Series 2 Carbon tripod (TAD28C) with G2 Low Profile Triple Action Magnesium Ballhead. For long hikes, I use a Benro Tripster Series 2 Carbon with iB0 Triple Action Ballhead or the Benro Tripster Series 0 Carbon with B00 Triple Action Ballhead. For specialty purposes like large obstacles and shooting over fences and bollards, I have a Slik 700DX Titanium tripod with Benro B2 ball head that has an 80″ max height. For high speed action with a large telephoto lens, or places that restrict tripod use, I have a Benro Mach3 Series 2 Carbon Monopod (MMA28C) with Feisol TT-15 Mk 2 Carbon mini tripod base.

As you can see, I’m a bit spoilt for choice, which can make prepping for a hike a bit frustrating at times, trying to fit as much as I can into the smallest, lightest kit possible. Like anyone else, I always end up taking far more than I actually need, just in case. I have no strobes or on-camera flash; this is an aspect I look forward to learning in the near future. Otherwise, there’s little need for it in the realm of landscape photography.
