The Cliche Camera Bag Post
So everyone does this post now or later. Now is the time.
Canon 7D:My trusty main body with the battery pack and gaps and labels all gaffer taped up like any good photographer.
Canon 70-200mm f/2.8: And yes it’s the non-IS version. I’m a college student and the pluses of IS didn’t outweigh the extra cost. This is my most trustworthy lens so you will see it on my camera most often.
Tokina 12-24mm f/4: Ahh the wide angle lens that I love too much. I have to often check myself from shooting at 12mm since it does a good job at making people look funny. Despite this this is my second favorite lens. Well built for a 3rd party lens.
Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8: The lens that frustrates me too much. I purchased this lens used, and now I’m hesitant of purchasing used lenses ever again.
Canon 50mm f/1.8: The trusty 50. Cheep, but still produces wonderful images. Very handy in low light situations.
Canon Xsi: my backup body. It’s an intro body, but when that 7D breaks I will still be able to come back with something. Also good for holding lenses if I can’t cary the behemoth bag around.
Rode mic: Gotta start shooting more video. Very handy in producing quality sound for my videos.
Canon 1.4x II extender: That little extra boost in distance for my 70-200mm is wonderful. It’s amazing.
Canon 430 EX II: It’s a flash unit so I don’t use it too often, but I need it once in a while so it gets to sit in my bag.
Tamrac Pro12: The bag I carry everything in. Almost forgot. It’s big, but it does a great job at getting all my gear around.
Odds and Ends:
- Think Tank card holder
- Rosco gels
- Lens cleaning stuff
- Voice recorder
- Tripod mounts
- Batteries for all the gear (10 AA’s, 2 9V, extra batteries for the cameras)
- Hand warmers (It gets cold near the end of football season)
- Gaffers tape
- Paper and a ton of pens
