Many of you know that I have an obsession with lightweight camera equipment 🙂 but the size and weight of my camera bag is also extremely important to me. Okay if you have transport and/or an assistant to carry your gear around etc. but I have neither so weight and size are of paramount importance to me especially if I’m out and about all day and everything has to be carried on foot.
Whilst going through some stuff I came across a camera bag that I bought some years ago and had completely forgotten about, actually I came across two of these bags. It’s a very small, leather-look shower-proof material, padded bag with a central compartment and two zip-up compartments on the front and back. So I thought I’d try and see how much camera equipment I could comfortably squeeze in it as it’s so small, light and extremely comfortable to carry.
I managed to get all of the gear shown in the photograph below except my 8.5mm, 60mm and 12-50mm lenses but still got two camera bodies (OM-D E-M5 + grip) and (E-PL5 + EVF) as well as 12mm, 17mm, 25mm and 45mm M.Zuiko lenses, spare batteries, filters etc. and the weight?, approximately 2Kg / 4 lbs. 🙂
