Hi all! Happy Friday! I hope it’s still Friday when I post this…probably not. That’s fine. So I decided I’d make my book haul post next week. Sorry. I felt like doing this photography camera bag haul post first. So I recently went on a trip to Calgary and I hauled along my camera bag. This is by no means my regular set-up, I change things up depending on the situation. This set-up is for longer trips with stable lodgings and I find it works well for me. It gives me choice and range.
What I neglected to pack on this trip was my Peak Design holster/camera clip. It’s attached on my day pack and I forgot to transfer it to my Vertex. It’s very handy and it takes the weight of the camera off my neck and hands and transfers it to either my shoulders or my hip which is a great relief. Also a couple more things I bring are, obviously, my phone and my earbuds. I carry with me a One Plus X and a pair of Jaybird X2‘s. The battery on the OPX is great and lasts for a solid day, and if you’re not using it that much the battery can last up to 2.5 days. The Jaybirds are very comfortable and isolate sound very well, which is great for flights. The battery life of the Jaybirds is about 8 hours of continuous play and according to their website 250 hours on standby. It also warns you when it’s low on batteries and after the warning you have about 15 more minutes of playtime before it completely shuts down. It also doesn’t take very long to charge it up, so I usually just top it up during the night as I normally do with all my electronics. Also on this particular trip I decided that since I had so many electronics with me, there’d naturally be a need for electricity. So I packed with me a powerbar. Not just any run of the mill powerbar either. I brought my 12 outlet Belkin powerbar with me. This one’s a bit of an older model. The newer model has USB ports. But I have enough USB charging ports from my batteries and my laptop so I’m well covered there. And there we have it! That’s all the camera equipment I brought with me on my trip to Calgary. I have added links to most of the items so you can dig around for more information. Some of them don’t have links because I simply don’t have enough information on them. If you have any further questions, feel free to message me in the comments section below. Happy photography shooting everyone!
On the brink of insanity, I often find myself pondering why I exist in this world when my mind blanks out so often. Here you’ll find a collection of my random musings and daily oddities.
