What’s in my Camera Bag

So first blog post to my photography blog.  I will start off by listing my current equipment I use to shoot all my photos I have listed today.  

As you can see my camera system of choice is the micro four thirds system with Olympus camera bodies.  I have been slowly upgrading my camera bodies over the years and my first camera with a detachable lens was the Olympus Pen E-PM1.  I used the Pen series of camera for awhile and then quickly wanted something with more features and options.  So I upgraded to the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark 1.  This camera satisfied my needs for awhile until I started getting into more sports and action photography. So I eventually upgraded to the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark 1.  Once I made the switch to the Olympus E-M1, shooting my son’s football, basketball and track meets became easier with the E-M1 Mark 1.  It’s higher burst rate with faster autofocus greatly improved my hit count of being able to capture the action of the games.

I still have these manual focus lenses (Olympus 50mm f1.8 and Soligor 300mm f4) for nostalgia but I rarely use them anymore.  They were great when I was first starting out and wanted an inexpensive way to get into photography.  But I mostly now concentrate my time on using my newer autofocus lenses.  It’s hard to believe my first telephoto lens was the Soligor manual focus 300mm lens that I used for capturing photos of birds.

The Mindshift PhotoCross 13 camera bag is a sling style camera bag that works perfectly for me and my camera equipment.  The build and quality of materials of the bag is excellent.  I am able to carry in the MindShift PhotoCross 13 my camera body with a 25mm lens attached, M.Zuiko 75-300mm, M.Zuiko 40-150mm, M.Zuiko 45mmf1.8 and still have room for another lens if needed.  The name of the bag PhotoCross 13 denotes that it is big enough to fit a 13 inch laptop.  For me I am able to fit my 12.9 inch iPad Pro.  Also there are pockets for extra accessories, batteries, memory cards, etc…  Overall I highly recommend the Mindshift Gear PhotoCross13 camera bag it is very comfortable and works well with a mirrorless camera system.
