    What do you bring with you when you go out for a day of shooting?

    I now take to much stuff with me,
    today I took over 15 roles of film
    2 :camera: 35mm and a digital camera
    6 lenses and so on....

    Now I did not use 1/2 of it but I had it :roll: and only 2 roles of film :LOL:

    I'm a sucker for taking as much as i can carry...

    I take it even it there is only the slightest chance i'll use it.

    Just recently i went into the city to take shots and only took 1 film my EOS10 and a tripod. I was regretting it as i missed heaps of oppourtunities and when i went back the next day the wind had picked up and i couldn't get the shots...

    oh well...

    I guess i kinda follow the boy scouts moto - "Be prepared"

    I'm starting to prioritise now, but i still like to be prepared (but me shoulders hurt afterwards)

    You film users are just so silly! All that excess baggage, Sheesh!

    For a day out i travel with my Digital (no 35 mm film jobby for me), 3 x XD 64MB memory cards, 4 spare NiMH AA batteries, 1 x tripod, 1 x mini tripod.

    For more than one day add 1 x laptop computer, 1 x USB cable, 1 x battery recharger and car adapter.

    See, there's no need to carry all those rolls of film! :lol:

    i usually take my digital cam on my neckstrap with the power on and ready to go :D .. wide angle lens (usually mounted on, i prefer wide) , 3 memory cards, and 4 spare batteries ... i never carry a tripod or rarely use it (although we have 3), its too restricting for me :? ...

    depends on my mood - usually I don't like to haul lots of stuff around... So most of the time my cam with one lens (also depending on my mood :roll: ) a pol filter, sometimes a spare battery and a 2nd memory card... that's it. tripod mostlikely for nightshots only...

    I most always bring a tripod. Unless I know there is going to be plenty of light. I'm only steady enough to hand hold 1/30 shutter speeds with 50mm and less...

    It depends. If I think a 50mm lens is all I need and want to travel light, my x370, 50mm and a roll or two for street stuff is all I take. Most people don't realize how versitale a 50mm is. Before zooms, that's all most people had.

    I love just shooting with my 50mm lens. When I started it was all about my zoom and 28mm... Then I discovered how sharp and fast my 50mm lens was and it is my favorite (that and the 100mm macro)

    Well, here's my gear, I usually put this in a Lowepro Nova 3 bag:

    Canon A-1
    FD 24mm f/2.8
    FD 50mm f/1.8
    FD 100mm f/2.8
    Vivitar Series 1 70-210mm f/2.8-4
    Canon Speedlite 199A
    Various filters and other crap
    Several rolls of film (HP5 Plus and FP4 Plus)

    Personally I'd rather use a 35mm lens than a 50mm lens, it's a better focal length for doing street photography IMO. I haven't had a chance to pick one up yet. I'm also after a Canonet rangefinder at the moment, I'd love to just go out with one little camera sometimes ;).

    I think I speak for all the digital people, when I say that you non-digital'ers are funny! Carting around all those lenses and and rolls of film. Funny Funny Funny (but we won't get this thread side tracked about that will we now :) )

    For me, I'll take my Canon G5, the battery (hopefully obviously), and a 512meg CF Card. Lowepro "something" bag holds it all. and yeah, there you go.
