Bags & Cases

Lowepro Roller 3 (external link)
Lowepro Roller 1 (external link)
Lowepro Nature Trekker backpack (external link)
Lowepro Commercial Shoulder  (external link)

Tenba LL300 (external link) This is for my 300 f/2.8 L IS. What a great little bag.
A number of other cases too numerous to mention. The ones above are the ones that I currently use mostly. I also use a couple of hard sided suitcases to move equipment around on flights that I cannot carry on board. Works like a charm and they don't scream "steal me" like a Pelican type case does.

Other Stuff

Nikon Super COOLSCAN 9000 ED Film Scanner (external link)

This scanner accepts all film types up to 120/220. I purchased to start archiving the some 200,000 negative and slides that I have on hand. These are a mixture of 35mm and 120 films and transparencies. This beats a flatbed scanner hands down. Too bad Canon didn't make anything of this quality.

Epson Perfection 3200 Pro (external link) Flatbed Scanner
Gitzo 1325 MKII (external link)
Carbon Fiber tripod with Kirk BH1 head (external link)
Gitzo 1345 (external link)

Digital Film Tools 55mm plugin (external link) This is a filtering add-in for photoshop. It comes with over 65 filters that can be applied from within photoshop.
On One Software (external link) This comes with the products Intellihance, MaskPro, Genuine Fractals, PhotoTools and PhotoFrame Pro. I could have lived without the framing tool but it came with the suite.
Phase One C1 Pro This is my preferred RAW Converter.
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom (external link) 2 licenses
Site Grinder (external link) Web site generator from within Photoshop. This is one cool product.
Photomatix Pro (external link)
ProShow Producer  (external link)Image to video production software
Raw Shooter Premium This is a decent RAW converter but is now owned by Adobe and no longer on sale. It had its day and I don't use it anymore as it doesn't support my latest cameras.
Total CommanderIf you like a double paned file manager, you’ll love this one. It has a plethora of other functions and I use it for batch file renaming a lot.

All that gear might be spread out among your family members, but as I recall, you bought it all.

Makes me wish we were related.

I'm not short. I'm concentrated awesome!
