    New article: What's inside QT Luong's general purpose camera bag

    A new article QT Luong's general purpose camera bag has been posted. Please feel free to leave any contructive comments in this thread. Note:
    It would be great if you would send me a similarly illustrated article describing your camera bag, especially if it is quite different (light kit, monorail kit ...).

    That is an excellent article. I enjoyed reading it very much. You are worlds more organized than I am, but I don't have to organize near as much stuff. For example, I keep my two film holders in the box they came in with a big rubber band to hold it closed/together. I think it would be fun to write an article for you. You can do with it as you please.

    Interesting, thanks for writing the article. One note I'll add is that I believe that is the old model super treker backpack. Also that the new model will fit tall photographers. In my experience few photo-specific packs will fit a long torso.

    My new kit is very similiar to the one shown, but I prefer to carry filters, hoods, etc. in a belt pack so as to not have to work out of the main pack after initial setup. I carry six lenses (80xl instead of the nikkor 90, 180 sironar-S instead of the 150 and 210), canham 6x17, and a 4x5 reducing back.

    I would like to hear more about how people organize all the small stuff to work quickly in the field.

    Well done. Looking forward to your article on camera bags for hiking. (Been investigating the Kelty Redwing, based on opinions stated in this forum.)

    I am surprised that there are no maintenance tools included. Do you not have a need for them?

    Everyone needs to find their own balance between weight and range of equipment. Equipment flexibility, or a flexible back... On day trips one can afford to tailor the kit more than if you are spending a couple of weeks in the wilds.

    Graham, this bag is meant for working for about half a day. I do have a little maintainance kit with tools and spares, but it stays in the car, and I don't carry it with me on the trail.

    I have the Super Trekker AWII - huge bag but more comfortable than my previous one, the f64 8x10 pack. In the main compartment is my Wisner 8x10 Expedition, 355 G-Claron always (plus one other lens, either a 240, 210 or 455), light meter, cable release, anti-static brush and focusing loupe. The pockets contain a notebook and pen and a filter pouch containing 6 filters. The inner net pouch contains 6 8x10 holders, each in its own zip lock bag. I carry my Ries tripod and head by hand as I hike.

    I was confused by the reference to Denali. Not the place to be if you have forgotten something important!

    Good article. Can you speak about the Canon self timer? What model is it?

    Thanks!
