Long Exposure #6 : My photography Equipment

After filling the form on photoblogs.com and DPChallenge this week, I realized that I have never shared with you my photography equipment.
Here’s a picture of the bag we took for last weeks photo walk in Greenwood cemetery

Petrol DSLR inMotion photobagThe bag is a wonder from Petrol. It is the DSLR Camera Rollpak. Celine loves to roll it and I find it personally more convenient to put is a backpack.

Here’s what you can see in the bag in the picture above (from left to right):

Not in the picture but in the bag, we also had spare batteries and memory cards as well as a cleaning kit for the lens and a cover should it start to rain.
To be complete here’s the list of lenses that didn’t make the cut this time but we could take with us next time:

IS stands for Image Stabilizer.
USM stands for Ultrasonic Motor.

We used to have a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II. It was the king of the quality/price in our house and you can still buy it for about 100$. We loved it so much that when the first one broke down (dropped on the floor and exploded) we immediately bought a new one. The second one just died on us (the focus can’t be trusted anymore) and we will replace it eventually with his big brother the Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM.
We also have a Canon MPE-65 that is amazing to do macro shots if you are able to do the focus.

I love the 100-400mm for the very powerful zoom and the 85mm for the intimate depth of field. If I were to play and win the lottery I would probably by this lens from Sigma.

We have also several accessories:

Don’t hesitate to contact me or leave a comment if you have any question regarding this equipment or would just like to share your equipment or dream equipment.

    How heavy is your bag, with all the equipment in it?

    • Thanks for your comment

      I didn’t weigh it but I will do it tonight when I am back.
      I did a quick sum of all the content and I get something around 7-8 kgs (ie 15-17lbs)
      To that you have to add the weight of the bag 4.3kg (9.46lb)

      Once you adjusted it properly the most difficult part is to put it on the back. Once there it’s very comfortable.
      Remember that you can roll it (the wheels are very good and seem durable)
