What’s in my bag?

I have two bags, one for travel and one for when I’m out patrolling the streets. My travel bag is the LowePro Sports Flipside 15L (orange) which originally housed my 5D3 and an assortment of lenses, flash, tripod and other accessories. Today it’s primarily used when I need to bring my entire Fuji X-T1 kit with me on shoots or when traveling abroad.

In this bag I have…

  • Fuji X-T1
  • XF 14mm
  • XF 16-55mm
  • XF 50-140mm
  • Fuji EX-F8 Flash
  • Wasabi NP-W126 battery
  • Cleaning cloth
  • Small Maglite torch
  • Peak design pro clip
  • Allen key set
