I am wondering how often you guys have your camera with you? For example, I coach youth lacrosse. I am coaching tonight a place that is a half hour away and in between a bunch of lakes (a few of the 10,000 here). I am thinking about taking by camera with me in case I see some cool things to shoot. As mentioned, there are lots of lakes with foliage in the area (based off google maps) which I like to shoot.

Do you take your camera with you even though you aren't sure if you will shoot anything just in case? Or do you just remember the spot and go back for a more formal outing later?

I take it with me most places, you never know when you will come across that perfect opportunity. It can be a bit of a pain sometimes lugging it around, but I know the first time I don't take is when I will regret it.

When I'm home it's always with me. I used to take it with me whenever I left the house but I've gotten bad about that lately. I need to start taking it with me more.

When I had my regular strap...not so often. With my BR-Sport 2? Always. It's easier to take with you when you DON'T notice it's there... :D

Whenever someone pays me to or whenever I have something I very intentionally want to shoot. Otherwise, I gotta put it down sometime or it will dominate my life.

I only take my camera to events, things I plan to shoot, etc... I don't feel like lugging all my stuff with me when I go to the store or to school :P

I am not one of those who always has it on me... I don't need to take photos that often. I just have it when I want to shoot stuff.

The fun part is grabbing the camera and one lens and making a go of it with what you got. It keeps the creative juices going. Yah you say "Gosh I wish I had brought that other lens". But if you can get the shot with what you have then all the better I think.

True... I guess I should of been more clear. I won't take my gear if I am just doing errands or stuff I know I wont have time to take pictures or know there will be nothing of interest. I will take it if we go somewhere different, somewhere that may be nice, etc... I am just selective on what I take when.

Most of my gear lives in a kit bag, and is part of my daily carry items. I rarely pull it out, but it is always nice to have with me for if I ever decide to use it.

I've been thinking about getting a 30D or another 40D so I can use it as a carry around camera. Maybe get a Nifty Fifty for it as well. Just something to kick around while I'm out and about.
