Just wanted to see what you guys carry with you in your camera bag at ALL times.

For me, Giotto rocket blower and kodak lens tissue is a must have.

Lets share what you guys have :lol:

Lens pen, circular polarizers, a couple of spare batteries, pens and a small pad of paper.

I'd ditch the tissue for a good microfiber cloth or a lens pen.

Good additions, maybe i need to get a quality lens pen too XD.

Also, care to shed some light as to why you carry a notepad? To jog down future photo locations due to bad lighting etc?

Be prepared the moto of the scouts. I have an iphone I'm much more likely to take notes with, but in case I ever need to give someone information a pen and paper seems the most reliable method.

I'm surprised no one mentioned an extra memory card :)

Along with that, I carry lens cloths, spare batteries, and the new edition is spare lens caps.

As well as most of the stuff above I also carry an Optech Rain cover. Additionally I also carry a shower cap for the front of my lens for times like this:

Oh yes and a Royaltek GPS tracker - neat little device that tracks where you have been.

Like I say every time this comes up, mini-carabiners, a plastic $0.99 disposable poncho and a garbage bag or two in addition to the obvious stuff. Also a voice recorder that I let run while I'm shooting for any commentary that may be going on.
