While I do have a large Pelican that's supposed to be "home base," most of my gear ends up on my work table pretty much as it was left after my last shoot.

The Pelican though, looks awesome! ;)

Been there; done that. Just wait until you stub your little toe on a Manfrotto 488 ballhead. My daughter was visiting, so it was a mild - "Goodness me, that was quite painful." Then out the back door to roar some satisfyingly crunchy obscenities to the night sky.

Okay, quite the variety of storage. Most seem to store their good stuff in photo pack/bags. I am not as worried about theft as I am about fire or water damage from the fire. The safes I have are both water/fire safe and can limit the inside temps from fires up to 1200degreesF.

I was curious about others, that is all.
BTE- the 2 safes cost me about $215. My gear when all added up may be about $10,000. Yes I also have insurance, but I do not want to rely on insurance if I don't have to.


just a few of my thoughts...

so before I said I just leave it in my camera bag on the floor but I guess things have changed. I just received a tripod from my friends for my birthday so it's sitting on the tripod :P

Mine are usually stored in my camera bag, with occasional stay on my desk.

I have my 5D2 and lens's in one bag, My 1D3's in another bag since they are used together mostly. I mix and match as needed. They are stored in a big blue tupperware box in corner of closet...marked as "clothes too small"...maybe paranoid, but I figure thieves aren't looking for clothing! Of course...I they go into my attic....they will see the boxes for all my equipment! I am well insured for theft. Prefer not to go through that mess!

Newbie here, see this is my 1st post. While I only have my T2i & 2 kit lenses, I too have wondered whether the Canon 200DG Digital Camera Gadget Bag is adequate for now.

I'm planning to purchase a much faster lens, maybe an
L lens in the next month or two, so I certainly want to know beforehand how to best protect it on & off the camera body, at home & when traveling.

I'm not concerned with theft while stored in the house. I just need to know the best way to head off accidental damage. I certainly don't drop, toss or throw the camera or bag down.

Thanks for your help & hope this post adheres to all guidelines. This too is a learning process.

Backpack or sling bag (depending on which lenses were used last time), usually on a shelf in the closet.

Just in my camera bag, and that bag is in my closet along with my other backpacks/bags. I don't have any lens worth over $1,000, but if I did I think it would still be in the same area lol.

My most often used gear is in a backpack hanging in the closet beside the backdoor, ready to grab and go. My extra gear is in a padded camera bag under my desk. I take my backpack to work every day, the top compartment is reserved for my lunch.
When I retire (in 14 weeks, 5 days,. 19 hours, 4 min, & 43 seconds, but who's counting!) the top compartment will hold more camera gear!!

Welcome seaforddi. The 200DG Gadget bag should serve you well through a few lens purchases.. i lugged my 70-200 f/4, 50 f/1.4, 100 f/2.8 macro, 15-85, tubes, 2 xTCs, filters, etc, etc. in it. It's well built.. i like the steel clips.

Back O/T.. i sit my bodies and a few most-used lenses on a homemade bench beside my computer desk. I can just grab whatever and go.. no bag necessary. I keep most of the other stuff in my Tamrac Pro12 bag.. it sits by the door(basement door.. living my my parents basement), on a wooden stand, on top of my filing cabinet. Messy.. yes, convenient.. positively! :p

I have a lockable cupboard which is never locked :rolleyes: to store my gear.. Usually a camera and lens or two are sitting on the spare desk (which we bought for my wife but she never uses it ) in the office..

At this very moment on the desk there is a 50D with grip, EF 85mm f/1.8 mounted and a EF 50mm f/1.4, my wallet, sunglasses, mobile phone, Ipod earphones (my Ipod is in the dock in the bedroom) and a dirty coffee mug from last night..

I have a big shelf.
Because of my 2 years old daugther the lower two shelves are loaded with backdrops, tripods and such stuff. And some cheap bad lenses for her :-) She is able to build a tower of 4 lenses :-)
Furthermore I have a big single shelf where I store some photo bags and backpacks. In these bags are the rarer used lenses.
I made a small wodden closet for my DIY work. There are some lenses, flashes and cameras inside, which are planned to be modified or repaired. The Dremel tool, a small mill and other tools are strored there too. And on the closet is my mini lathe.

I my small Peli case I store only cheap lenses, because of fungus risk (no fresh air, no light). And I try to open the bag often. It is not ideal storing lenses in closed bags - in my opinon.
