    Default How Heavy Is Your Camera Bag

    As the weather's turned to rain again, I decided to sort out my camera bag. I've taken out a lot of stuff as it was getting so heavy. I've been employing the theory of " Better To Have It And Not Want It, Than Want It and Not Have It" However, I've needed "Muscles Like Garth" to carry it. What do you think?

    Usualy I wear a photographers Gilet which will have another 3 lenses in it, just weighed it and its another 1.3kg add on 2.75kg for tripod which I normally carry on a sling across my back im up to 9.9kg thats why i'm puffing going up hill. But that would only be when I'm going a long way off the beaten track.

    Lumped my bag along the canal yesterday, and I was glad I took the equipment I had. My D600 and a Nikon wide angle lens was used for the scenic shot of the canal, and my D7000 was loaded up with my Nikon micro lens for the insect shots. I've decided to do this so I don't have to change lenses' on the D600.
