What's in your camera bag?

I am slowly building my collection (dang, this hobby is expensive…) and am curious what others have…

Mine has:
Nikon D70s
The standard kit lens: AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-70mm f3.5-4.5G ED-IF
70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR Zoom Nikkor Lens
105mm f2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor Lens
Two cheap UV filters (rarely used…)
Circular polarizing filter
Wireless remote control
Small air blower
Extra battery
Extra memory card
Manfrotto tripod
Some tip cards to help me with camera settings, etc.

I would love to jump up to a D300 but that would require a lot of pennies, and I’m also saving up for my wedding, so that likely won’t happen for a very long time!

mini tri-pod needs to go in there, but isn’t there now, and there’s no way the full-size tripod will fit

Hey, how do you like your sony? I would dearly love to go for a Nikon or Canon DSLR but the $$$ just isn’t there at the moment, so I’d be curious how you’ve liked this one.

6x 2G Sandisk high-speed CF hanging off camera
Extra battery

Wired remote control velcro’d to the leg

Next additions:
Circular polarizer and UV filter soon (old ones shattered)
Long lens such as EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM or the F/2 if I’m feeling wealthy


I had a Minolta 7d that died, a predecessor of the Sony dSLR . I looked at the Sony but found the focusing sluggish compared this Canon, even with the cheapo lens I currently have versus the expensive one on the Minolta.
