Where do you store your lenses at home?

That's why I thought a gun safe might be a problem...lack of air flow. I've seen images of lenses with lens fungus and it's downright ugly stuff.

My solution is cheap...I bought this at Ikea a few years back for approx $150 (stickers not included!). I don't use camera bags anymore, so in the safe I keep my chestvest with the usual stuff in it, plus 2 bodies with lenses attached. My MkIII doesn't go in here cause it is on my shoulder whenever I'm not at home. I keep one key on my keychain along with the key to my office door (both are always locked when I'm not at home) and the other one is hidden in a safe but convenient place in the office.

After much deliberation I bought a Pelican 1610 with lid organizer. This 'garage' has worked great for me, it holds all my gear with the exceptions of the larger tripods and monopod. Quick to grab everything when traveling in a vehicle. Quick to find what I need for putting in the appropriate bag for day use. It takes me but a minute to load packs out of it using a checklist to ensure nothing is missed. This is one purchase I am extremely pleased with.

I just keep all my stuff in my Crumpler 6 MDH which I usually have just under (or on) my desk.

Boxes, Cords, Manuals, etc. are up in the closet cause I rarely need them.

I am slowly collecting more gear though, so who knows once it stops all fitting in my bag (I am getting close :p )!

I try to keep them in the house. But atleast 90% of the time the bag is in my truck. House is just to small with 4 people in it to have lying around.
But it is always in this bag.

My stuff sits in my Photo Trekker AW II. I am about to get a nice shoulder bag for the days I only need my camera with a lens attached and two other lenses.

Mine (both of them) are in my camera bag. But as I get more lenses and stuff I will either have to get a bigger bag or find a way to take only what I need.

I have recently bought a Pelican 1620, and I basically drop my LowePro (can't remember what the model is but it's the biggest with a laptop compartment) into it instead of the divider set they sell.
It gives me various options:

1: to use it as storage and take out what you need for the day.
2: take the whole Peli along to sit on during a sport shoot
3: take the LowePro out and strap it to you back as an intermediate solution

It is early days but it seems to work well.

Pelican 1510 with dividers, altough it's getting a bit small. Actually The 1510 is NOT shrinking, it's just that my collection of bits and pieces and lenses leeps on growing!

I blame POTN anyway... :lol::lol:

cheers

I keep mine under my pillow, as they are near and dear to me. :lol:

Gee, I wonder if that's why I've had insomnia lately.

I just throw mine on the floor ... stumbled over and kicked one under the bed last night =)

Reminder: Do not buy used lenses from canonfire ;)

All lenses sit in a camera bag on a wire shelf in a small closet. If they are at school, they get stored in a file cabinet behind my desk.


My students ask, "Where's that bazooka lens?"

I keep all mine in Lowepro bags etc; which I store in a wardrobe, then just pack what I need into 1 bag. In the future I want something better, but for now it works fine. My boyfriend is not pleased when I sneak gear into his wardrobe though!

Man a pelican 1624 is looking really good right now... They are just so expensive with the padded dividers.

But, given your investment into camera gear, it is not that much for the convenience it affords you. ;)

I use a Hakuba Sonora series shoulder bag. It holds my D30, 4 lenses, 420EX and all the accessories I need.
