    Re: New toys - photo equipment

    Probably someday next week from Brisbane to Perth
    It is an affordable fixed lens....
    My friend bought a new nikon df and this lens came with camera as a lens kit.
    He already has had a sigma 50mm f1.4, so he decides to sell it on a very cheap price.

    One of the best camera bags I have, the Lowepro flipside 200. it is not that big but I can fit in it a 5Diii with 70 200 lens attached, the body of a 5Dii, a 24 105mm, my new 14mm, put the ipad over the top of them and there is still room in the side pockets for more.....and there is an attachment for a tripod.....A great size to use as carry on luggage on a flight and to cart to national parks.....I highly recommend checking this one out.

    Hi Oeshidez

    My usual travel kit is Nikon D300s body (I like the crop sensor), 16-50 f2.8, 50-135 f2.8, 35 f1.8 and 50 f1.8 lenses. 1 Speedlight and a Lumix compact camera.

    I have many different bags and have tried various back packs but do not like them at all. Manchester Airport is very strict on cabin baggage allowance and they usually weigh hand luggage which is a big problem with most airlines restricting passengers to 8KG. In addition, Emirates only allow 1 piece of hand luggage with no allowance for a camera to be carried separately (Etihad and Qatar are a little less strict). I have now settled on the following methods of carrying my gear which give me the greatest flexibility.

    I use a Billingham Hadley bag and the Think Tank Belt system using the Skin pouches (the ones without padding so are collapsible and easy to pack). My carry-on bag is a regulation size leather holdall in which I place the padded liner from my Billingham bag, the bag going in my checked luggage. Camera body and lenses go into this padded liner with Speedlight etc in one of the Think Tank pouches. All my chargers, laptop and valuables also go into the holdall. I also have a very light cotton photographers vest which I use for one purpose only........ to beat the weight restrictions! On arrival at the airport I transfer the lenses, camera body, tablet, speedlight etc into the waistcoat and then go through check-in so they can weigh my now within-the-limit bag. As soon as I leave check-in, but before security, I transfer all the equipment back into my carry-on. This only happens at Manchester Airport, I have never had a problem at the Middle East transfer airport, nor at Bangkok on the return flight.

    Once in Bangkok I use the Billingham if I am taking gear out at night or to a restaurant or roof top bar, anywhere smart, I also use it during the Rainy Season as it is totally waterproof. At all other times I use the Think Tank Belt System which I absolutely love! Usual carry method as follows:


    • Camera with 16-50 attached carried on a Black Rapid sling strap
    • 50-135 in sectioned off Think Tank “Chimp Cage” pouch with other half carrying sunglasses, mobile phone etc
    • Compact camera and/or speedlight in "Skin 50" pouch
    • Compact tripod in its own pouch
    • I also have a Think Tank "Digital Holster 20" which can hold the camera with either lens attached for rain, boat trips etc


    I can carry all my gear on a full day photo shoot with no discomfort whatsoever, with everything easily and quickly accessible. Any of the pouches can have a shoulder strap attached and so can be carried independently of the belt.
