| p.1 #9 · p.1 #9 · Building a custom cabinet for my camera gear...what specifications should I include? |
I like to carry my big whites in my backpack, but I have Lens Coat "Travel Coat" for them. I need to get a few more, and where they don't have the size I need, I can get them made for me. Can't carry much more than one...I suppose two but the gear gets real heavy when I do that. It was bad enough this recent trip to Alaska. I had two large carry ons....housed my 200-400 f4, 200f2, Gigapan device, two bodies, 24-105, 28-135 (wife's lens she likes to use...I don't argue), 85 f1.2, 50 f1.4, CamRanger, iPad, charger for 1Dx and 7D, small canon flash, extra cards just in case, heavy duty tripod for gigapan, 100-400.
Thought about taking along also the 800f5.6 or the 500f4......the bulk and weight of everything just got the better of me and I left them at home. When we drive out to Maine next year, most of the gear will go with me.....driving is much easier.....
I keep thinking in some cases I have redundant gear and should thin the herd, first to free up cash (not a priority right now), free up space and finally reduce the items on insurance coverage.
Thinning the herd will be another topic I will launch in a few days to discuss....
I keep my lens cases on the racks in my studio. I store the lenses with caps and some with hoods. I use neoprene Op/Tech Snoot Boots and LensCoat Hoodies to protect my lenses when they're in camera bags (I don't use dividers), and I store them in a two-drawer filing cabinet that's near to my dry cabinet.
Here's some old photos of my work space,
The computer room is much cleaner now, because I added 12' of four-level shelving in the studio room.
