as little as possible, but sometimes a full bag (scaling in at 27lb now). Mostly I try to limit it to one camera, 24-70, 70-200 and maybe my 14mm. Or best, just my camera with the 24-70.


40D, 5D3, a bunch of lenses and other things :cool:

When shooting casually, for me its the a7r with Sony 35 f2.8...no bag, just slung on shoulder with a black rapid metro. If I need a flash, I'll bring the Sony 20am and a flashbender. The 20 am doesn't have a swivel head, but the flash bender can be used to throw the light over my shoulder to bounce the way I would with a larger speedlight. It can also be bent forward to give a larger light source when using a fill flash.

I can do quite a lot with this set-up, and its a very hassle free set-up to bring around casually.

and a x tra batt .if im. shooting a days worth at the lake or a gathering of friends at the Barn for a party I take my whole arsenal and just put it together as I go .
Unless your a pro and do it for the $$ Most of us take or plan what we need . "why would you take 2 bodys and 5 pieces of glass to shoot a birthday party?"

i guess ive just never liked packing and repacking my bag. if its full its heavy (weighted in at 25lb with the body) if i leave stuff out, its too big and it feels empty...

thanks for the replies...

while i dont have a slew of lenses, for a while i was carrying the following:

7D (replaced with a 5D3)
50mm 1.4
24-70mm 2.8 II
70-200mm 2.8 IS
1.4x II
580ex II (two of them, for a SHORT period of time THREE!)
PW TT1/TT5
some extra AAs, extra camera battery
class II safety vest (got me better access a couple of times)

ive since divested myself of the flash and PW units for various reasons but i carried them just in case i was able to figure something creative and wanted to use a couple of different lighting sources...


how much stuff do you all carry on a somewhat regular basis? by ditching the speedlites, ive got room to 'bag' the camera with 24-70 mounted where in the past it was kind of precariously stuffed in it. because of the length of the 70-200 i went to the domke F7 from my beloved F2...
just curious...

Is your goal to carry less? Or carry different? Here's one idea. Start keeping track of which items do/don't get used. Determine a non-use threshold (10 outings, 3 months, etc.). Stop taking the items that don't get used in that time period. If desired replace unused items with different items, or change to smaller bag.

Like so many others have said, it depends on what I'm headed out to shoot. Sometimes, I just head out with my 5D and one lens, sometimes I load up my LowePro Pro Trekker 400, other times I load up my Think Tank International Security, or sometimes, I take all three of my Pelican cases which holds all of my gear.

I really do tailor what I carry depending on my current assignment or goal.

iPhone 5s in pocket, I never leave home with out it!


More seriously, my choice of kit depends on what I intend to shoot.
In most cases I will carry 2 bodies with different lenses, but often keep other options in the car or a second bag so I can change the carry kit if needed.

For walking about, I often take one body, 2 lens. The lens choice varies with how I feel or where I'm going (subject types etc)
But typically one of the following combos is most common for me
5D3 + S35 + EF135
5D3 + S35 + EF70-200 II


I rarely take lighting unless its for a portrait shoot session, in which case I take a whole load of gear.


Bodies - Canon EOS 5DIII | EOS 6D
Primes - TS-E24 f/3.5L II | Σ 35mm F1.4 DG Art | EF 85 f/1.2L II | EF 135 f/2L
Zooms - EF 16-35 f/2.8L II | EF 24-70 f/2.8L II | EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II | Σ 24-105mm F/4 DG OS Art | Σ 120-300mm F/2.8 DG OS Sport
