    Just received my D3000 today (This thing is NICE!)

    Anyways, got a camera bag with the kit I ordered. Pretty nice bag. Once I start carrying 3 lenses, it'll be too small, but thats a long ways off.

    So what do you guys carry in your bag? I cant really decide at this point what I should carry and what I should leave at home..

    I carry almost all my stuff, spare batteries, charger, cables. There have been multiple times I have needed that stuff, I also keep some AA batteries for my flash, microfiber cloth and some business cards.

    depends on your bag size ofcourse, I bought one to fit all I have...I got a tamrac backpack from B&H. So the answer to your question is EVERYTHING but I don't exactly have a warehouse of crap either. Everything in my sig, supplys for lens cleaning, extra batteries a AA charger and Nikon battery charger. Also a few plastic 1 gal bags, I do some out door shooting this time of year and snow can come from nowhere so I like to be able to protect my lenses ect ect, along with a garbage bag to put my camera bag in if it does snow that bad or rain. The just the typical stuff, note pad, pens, extra memory.....pretty much like I said everything except my wife! hahaha!

    all my gear is spread over 3 Pelican cases, plus tripod & monopod bags, they are always in the trunk when I go out shooting.
    For 'walk & shoot', I have what I need in my shoulder bag.

    In my camera bag proper --

    2 bodies (camera, that is), 4 or 5 lenses depending on the situation, flashes (1 or 2 depending) and small modifiers, batteries and chargers, white/black/grey cards, memory cards, filters (ND, CPOL, usually), business cards, model releases, safety pins, bandaids, a sewing kit, swiss army knife, remote shutter release...

    Sometimes I pack what I've started to call a 'short kit' for personal trips. Small pack, one body, one lens, and sometimes a flash. Living on the edge.

    As far as packing the lens cleaning kit...

    do you guys pack the solution as well? The kit that I got came with a "brush blower" but I really dont feel comfortable putting a brush to my lens. I think I'll just stick with the regular blower.

    my whole signature down below "HOW I ROLL" is what I got in my bag at all times and with me, yes I got a strong back! LOL but if I had to pick 2 things it would be my 5D MKII and my 70-200mm f/2.8L (I use a Kata expandable backpack with a lot of attachments and its starting to get really crowded)

    I prefer to be as light and mobile as I can. Though I also don't have alot of stuff.

    I carry my D90 with an 18-200 attached in my hand
    With a plastic bag in my pocket if it rains
    and a spare battery in my other pocket.
    I have 2 spare pockets for my lens cap and keys
