Over the last few weeks I have received a number of emails asking which camera bag I use with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 and also what equipment I include in my travel photography kit bag. I thought I would create a simple list of what I include in my travel photography kit regardless of the size of the trip.
Obviously I travel with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 camera and I carry with me the Fujinon 35mm and Fujinon 18mm lenses. In addition I also bring along the trusty Fujifilm X100. Occasionally I have the X10 in my pockets as well
The X100 is slightly smaller so tends to be carried around literally everywhere and it is perfect for those times when you are not photography focused but want quality photos if the opportunity arises.
I use one of my own brand strap and Italian leather half case on the X-Pro1 to protect my camera
On the X100 I use again one of my own straps. They can be on the right or left side of the camera depending on your preference. A leather ring reduce the strap opening. The strap comes with a 1/2? split ring to attach to the camera.
I use either the Think Tank Retrospective 5 Pinestone Shoulder Bag or one of my own leather bags. Both bags come with 3 divided sections ideal for the X-Pro1, X100 and a 2nd lens.
There are a number of additional pockets for ipad, documents memory cards etc
For traveling light I always take my brilliant little GorillaPod
I do not carry many carry accessories with me. Just a lens cleaning cloth a Hamma cable release for long exposures over 30 seconds, couple of spare batteries, connections to my ipad, iphone
I also pack a couple of soft release buttons, many argue these are vanity decoration but I do think they make the button easier to use. I use mine either in glass or wood
I carry most of the time the Fuji flash EF x20.
