    How do you all lug your stuff around?
    How much of it do you carry with you?
    Do you always keep your camera with you?
    Do you anticipate the lenses and things you need, or carry it all?
    Do you keep a camera around your neck? How often?

    What kind of bag, box or case do you carry?
    How many of them do you have?

    I am referring to your methods of lugging your camera stuff. Please tell me/us a bit about your methods if you dont mind.

    Thank you!

    I use a Lowepro backpack that will carry 2 bodies with lenses on, 7 additional lenses, and 2 flash units, plus miscellaneous stuff.

    I pretty much keep it with me all the time.

    I use "Crooked Horn Bino-System" shoulder straps for camera straps on my bodies.

    I keep my tripod and head strapped under the backpack.

    At home I have a small case to keep bodies, lenses, filters, flashes and whatnots that I'm not using.

    Canon 10-22 f3.5-4.5
    Canon 100 f2.8 macro
    Canon 70-200 f2.8L IS
    Canon 300f4L IS with 1.4x converter attached
    Canon 50mm f1.4
    Canon 85mm f1.8

    Sigma EF500DG Super
    Canon 580EX plus a load of spare batteries

    I could still fit more :)

    All of this goes out when I'm shooting a wedding. I sometimes have a helper with strong arms - this is bloody heavy ;)

    I have a Lowepro Mico Trekker 200 and since I don't have the largest collections of gear, everything fits in it with room to spare. Being on the small side, I pretty much take it just about everywhere I go. Never know when having a camera might come in handy.

    lol.. eos jd, that is quite a selection. im gona have to google these wheel barrels you all carry..lol

    my little 19 dollar wal-mart samsonite barely fits my digital rebel xti, and the crap that came in the box with the camera. it has a little room left, but when i get my new lenses, im gona have to upgrade. Thats why I asked this question.

    I use a metal equpiment case which often doesn't leave the car. And if I need to go trekking I move the equipment i need to a backpack.

    It all depends on the intended subject(s), doesn't it?

    For instance, for simple 'street' photography, a camera kept around the neck at the ready is a full 'kit'.

    For serious landscape or architectural work, gear can go all the way up to 4X5, loaded film holders, large tripod, etc.

    It all depends.

    I also use a Lowpro Nova5 which holds a lot of equipment too. Not so much as the back pack but good for when a top loader is really needed.

    I keep the my camera equpment in a camera bag, and put the camera bag in y backpack. For the backpack I bought one of those laptop bags at wal-mart. This way while I am out takeing pictures I can easly load them onto the laptop, and or upload them for printing on my way home. I carrymy tripod with what ever hand is free.

    I have only had my equipment a few weeks, but I am having a blast, and I think I have it situated and organized well for now.

    I have a Pelican 1450 case with padded dividers.

    I will probably replace the Sony HC90 with a Telephoto lens later.
    Thats ok though, it has its own Pelican case ;)

    I have not really had a chance to go out much, but I plan to use a Campco Safari Vest that I have to carry a spare lens, etc.
    I may look into a small backpack some day also.
