*Storing, not stroring :)
How does everyone store their gear at home? Do you just leave it out for quick access? Do you use a bag and if so, what bag?

In my backpack so its always ready to go. But I tend to do mostly landscapes and live in the country, so I have been known to turn off the bbq mid dinner, grab my bag and run if I see good light forming :D

Core lenses and bodies in an F1x ready to go; rest in drawers and shelves in a closet (where the F1x and other bags also live).

I've gone to war against dust. Most containers are either both of 1) not easy to wipe down often or 2) not air/dust tight. I picked up a small file box meant for keeping papers dry. It has storage in the lid for flash cards and the transparent walls make monitoring a sinch. Just NOT for transport.

The bodies and lenses stay in the rolling bag in the floor of our home office. No special storage is needed for them as they are far more rugged than most of our home computers and electronics.

I store my gear in a locked Craftsman tool cabinet, with the wheels removed and bolted to the wall.


Best, Bruce

I keep most of my gear in a large gun safe with a good fire rating. But I always have a body and a few lenses in my bag ready to grab as I run out the door.

I have a de-humidifier in the safe and also store important documents, backup drives, guns and ammo, and other valuables. If you have the space, I think it's a good investment, and gives peace of mind in the event of fire or break-in.
