  1. Interesting! I have had to remodel a small suitcase for my two camera bodies and three lenses as well as batteries and chargers. I have one very big and heavy lens ( sport photography) so i needed a suitcase. I also have a monopod for the big lens but i carry that separately. Nice to see your suggestions here though.


  2. Good Morning. Bags Bags Bags. There was a time in my life when I truly owned 50 different bags and I had a special closet just to store them. I had bags that ranged in prices from 50.00 to 600.00 dollars but the reality was that I could only use one at a time. Today I have 2 bags. One is the COSYSPEED Outdoor camslinger bag and that comfortably carries my Fuji X pro 2, 50/2.0, 35mm 2.0, 23mm 2.0, Godox Flash and transmitter. 3 batteries, cable release, and cleaning stuff. It all fits into the Cosy which can be either a waist pack or sling bag. http://Www.cosyspeed.com.

    My other bag is the Peak Design sling bag. It holds all of the above as well as my IPad Pro and essential power supply and cables.

    Just 2 bags for different occasions.

    Quite often if I am city walking for a day I shall where a Scott vest, and it can hold two lenses, an IPad Pro 10.5, cables, batteries, cleaning stuff. The two lenses are 50mm and 35mm which equal 75mm and 50mm because they are on an APS sensor cameras body.

    Simplicity, light weight, makes for a more productive day of shooting.

    As for all my other bags, I gave them away to several organizations that are teaching photography for the under privileged in my area.


    1. Seems like you had the bag situation figured out. Thanks for your valuable input on those specific bags. And very kind of you for donating your other bags that you were not utilizing, I am sure they were highly appreciative.
