    I'm always interested in what people are carrying when the go out and take photos. Just wanted to ask if everyone would share what is usually in their bag with some pictures too. You can either show what you always carry, or what you carry for specific events. Small or large collections are welcome! Also, this gives us chance to show our product photography skills :D

    Here's mine as of now:

    • Koolerton Canvas Camera Bag
    • NEX F3 w/ Len Turbo MD*
    • Focal 28mm f/2.8, Celtic 135mm f/3.5, Rokkor 50mm f/1.4, Rokkor-HG 35mm f/2.8
    • Kalimar Extention Tube Adapter
    • Extra NP-FW50
    • Vivitar CPL
    • Giottos Pocket Rocket
    • Wansen Flash Adapter
    • A Pen
    • Sony Tablet S w/ OTG cable and a 32gb Flash Drive
    • Lens pouch for the Fungus infected 50mm

    The tablet is usually with me 85% of the time. But if I'm only going to be at a certain location for less than 2 hours, it stays home. This setup isn't too cumbersome, especially after moving to the NEX system.

    Things seem tightly compact in there. I'm sure that ThinkTanks are really safe, but does it get heavy after a while?

    Not to me. I'm a pretty hefty dude and have no problem carrying all that gear. If I do go on photo walks or something I usually just bring what I need. I just bring those pictured daily, bring it into my office and just put it aside. I've brought this bag with me to Disneyland on a family trip, 3 day trip, and the weight didn't bother me at all.

    I adore Think Tank's Retrospective bags!!!
    That Retro 30 is quite a bigger bag that needed that that gear. All of these could easily fit in the smaller Retrospective 5 or 7

    Yeah, I really like ThinkTank's retrospective series. I know the 30 is large for my current kit. Its just that I've had this bag already when I was shooting with DSLR and multiple lenses and haven't really been bothered by it's size. Plus I carry extra things like my over the ear headphones, various chargers and accessories for my devices, and I can carry a water bottle or two when I go out on a photo walk.

    Contribution to original name of this thread: :)
    I've never had camera bag, I use pistol case for both my dslr and nex. I use nex when I travel or have some climbing trip, when extra weight is not welcome… I use original Sony LCS-EMC small camera bag. It is fast-opening, light, reasonably paded and carry my nex+Sel16+vcl ecu1 + CV Nokton 40/1.4 + 3 extra baterry pack + extra SD card as well. All I need for travel snapshooting…

    Camera bag: LowePro Nova 190. It's my second one, the first one got worn out. I've had LowePro Nova bags in some shape or form for the last 20 years. Inside: A7, Olympus OM 40/2 and Shift 35/2.8, Minolta 17/4 and 100/2.5. Optech Rainsleeve, grey card, batteries, reading glasses, GPS (optional), caps, Q-tips and lens cloth. Lenses are as of today and can change on a daily basis :), although this is about the maximum in weight I'm prepared to carry. The weight is the main reason I didn't buy a Zeiss shift 35/2.8 because that's rougly as heavy as two other lenses.
