My Latest Camera Bag: Think Tank Retrospective® 7 Leather

Like many pros, I have a mountain of camera bags – each well-suited for a particular shooting situation. The latest addition to Camera Bag Mountain is the Think Thank Retrospective® 7 Leather Shoulder Bag. (The bag comes in other sizes and colors.) Click here to see all the Retro Leather bags.

Everything I need for street shooting fits neatly, securely and safely inside the water-resistant bag. A rain-cover is included for heavy downpours.

Here's a look at the gear I pack in the bag – and why.

• Canon 5Ds - for super-sharp shots;
• Canon 600EX-RT - for accurate flash photographs;
• Canon 24-105mm IS lens – my favorite all-purpose lens;
• Black Rapid strap – for fast shooting;
• Blower brush - to keep my sensor clean:
• Lens cleaning cloth - to keep my lens clean;
• Extra memory cards – to record my 50MB files;
• Extra camera battery - which is tucked inside the bag in one of the side pouches;
• Business cards – in case someone wants to get in touch with me and vice versa;
• Snack bar - because I am always hungry;
• Roll of film - included in this photo to see you were paying attention. :-)
• iPad - for researching a location.
