All my bags are packed, I’m ready to go… Wait, what’s in my camera bag? Interesting you should ask, two cameras, two battery chargers, 6 camera batteries, 3 AAA batteries, time-lapse remote, wired remote, 85mm lens, 50mm lens, 16-35mm lens, 10 stop ND filter, 6 stop ND filter, circular polarizer, graduated ND filter, 9 SD cards, 2 lens pens, iPad, and a MacBook Air.
I wish I could say I travel light but once you add all of this stuff up it makes for a pretty hefty carry-on. For this trip I checked a larger bag that has my tripod and a light camera backpack for my day trips. This set up is just to get me to my destination and then I’ll just choose what I need when I venture out and about. I don’t think I need to tell you to never pack your expensive gear into a bag you’ll be checking, the airport personal tend to treat your bag like it owes them money.
Am I forgetting anything?
