An ultra-small lightweight day out camera setup.

Hi everyone,

For my last two local trips out I decided to take my relatively little used Olympus E-PL5 camera and Lumix 12-32mm as I had other things that I needed to do and carry and I didn’t want to carry around some of my other somewhat more bulky camera gear. I dug out my tiny Samsonite Trekking camera bag and managed to squeeze in a fair bit of gear.

Firstly, to get a sense of scale, here’s the bag sitting on top of an A4 sheet of paper.

In the main compartment my E-PL5 with lens attached and my EV-4 electronic viewfinder ready to attach and in the top mesh pocket, a 58mm ND filter.

In the the front compartment, my Holux GPS data-logger, two spare camera batteries and, in the front zip-up mesh pocket, my Nikon Coolpix A-100 camera with my Manfrotto mini tripod attached in a red waterproof pouch so I even managed to fit in a backup camera!!. ๐Ÿ™‚

Lastly I attached a very small tabletop tripod through the two belt loops and used one of my handy Thinktank red-whips to secure it tightly. Behind this is another zip-up pocket into which I put a few lens wipes sachets and a lens cleaning cloth.

Amazing what one can get into such a tiny bag. ๐Ÿ™‚ . As for the weight, I don’t know, it was so light that it didn’t even register on my electronic bathroom scales!.

Kind regards,

Leigh
