Packing for a trip
And I’m off to Dubai tomorrow, so just finished packing. I do hope I have everything I need. So there will be no real updates here for the next week, as I’m not taking my Surface with me. I have quite a lot planed anyway, so I don’t expect any time to edit. But you are welcome to follow me on my FB page and Instagram, where I will try and post some behind the camera stuff.
What’s in the bag
So while punting this together, I thought I show you what I plan to use. Just the main stuff, not all the little things, as that would make for a very long list :)
As you can see, I’m using three cameras. My main camera will be the Canon 5D mark IV. Then there is the Sony a7R with Metabones III adapter, which I use as a backup. And in the corner you can see the Sony RX100 that I like to use for the behind the camera stuff and some quick snaps. I prefer it to a mobile phone, as the quality is better and it has a F1.8 aperture.
On the lens side, going from widest to telephoto, there are the following: Canon 8-15 F4 Fisheye, Laowa 12mm f2.8 Zero-D, Canon 16-35mm f2.8, Canon 17mm TSE, Canon 24-70mm F2.8 and Canon 70-200mm F2.8 IS II. Yes, that’s a lot of lenses, but I like to vary them, as they give different views. And of course I don’t carry everything at all times :) I would take fewer lenses, like for instance leaving the 16-35 behind as I have a 17 and 24-70, but, I cant put filters on the 17, so I can’t. And so on :)
The last thing visible here in that small Vanguard pouch is the Nisi V5 pro filter holder, with a reduction for the Laowa 12mm lens, standard lenses and a polarizer filter. Yes, the filter holder has a very nice leather case from Nisi, but I find it’s needlessly big.
Btw. This bag is the Lowepro Vertex 200 AW.
