What's in my camera bag?

I've uploaded a quick video of what I brought with me on my latest pre-wedding photoshoot. It was in the City, and I didn't want my bag to be too heavy, but it was anyway.

Here is the video:

I was testing out a new lens (the Sony 70-200/2.8 GM), so I took more than I normally would. My bag consisted of:

  • Sony A7Rii

  • Sony A7ii (for backup purposes)

  • Sony 70-200/2.8 GM

  • Sony 85/1.4 GM

  • Metabones adaptor

  • Canon 35/1.4

  • Canon 16-35/2.8

  • Batteries

  • Flash

  • Memory cards

  • Blackrapid camera strap

  • Blower brush & cloth

That's it. I didn't bring any off-camera flash equipment or tripod. I had a reflector, but left it in my car. This bag was still real heavy. I used all the lenses because I wanted to get re-aquainted with the old and try out the new, before our next wedding in 3 weeks. I was pretty happy with the results.

It would have been good if the ranger at The Rocks didn't come up to us and ask us to produce a permit. But anyway, our shoot was done by then.
