I have some fancy new Olympus dealer display stands I rescued from the bin. I've been keeping my kit on display, but it's taking up space and it's apart from the rest of my kit.

Now I'm curious how you store your kit

I keep my OM-1 with it's 12-40 f2.8 Pro, 40-150 f2.8 Pro and Olympus 100-400 in a Pelican "Vault" case for now. When I add several more lenses I'll graduate to a nice padded shoulder bag most likely I like to keep all my kit gear in one location for storage. I'll use 2 different sized holsters(one for when using just the 12-40 and one for the 40-150 or 100-400) when out and about shooting.

I use a Ruggard dry cabinet from B&H. They are a great deal when they put them on 1/2 price.

Padded draws or left in camera bag. No issues with humidity where I live.

I don’t have humidity issues either but the Ruggard cabinets are nice display/storage cabinets. I had looked at building something (I enjoy woodworking) but I could not have built something as nice for what I paid. I added some LED strip lighting in the back and have it set to a nice blue color. It included an LED light but no dimming ability. This keeps everything in one place and kinda sorta organized 😬

Strange question... In a bag, which I take out to use when photographing things.

I remove the ICU from my bag, and put it on a shelf. For one, it gives me easy access to the camera to charge batteries, download cards, etc... Plus my bag folds flat and takes up very little space hung up.

All my different systems have their own dedicated bag(s) so they are ready to deploy.

Bunch of lenses in a display cabinet. Cameras and lenses I recently used all over the place, in bags, on a desk, on the kitchen table….wherever I last left them. Once in a while I try to keep stuff organized but I always end up making a mess of it.

Now this is reality... How the house actually looks, not with just camera equipment.

Sits on a platypod on my work desk. I use my camera as my webcam for work meetings, and have been doing so for a couple years now.

^^^^^....Exactly. Then my wife complains and I pick things up to start the cycle all over again.

In my case, it’s the weekly cleaning lady’s visit that makes me look around and put the stuff in such a way she can’t damage it. This then sometimes leads to me wondering where I left my gear, only to find it in a drawer later.

In my gun safe. After home robber a few years back when all my kit was stolen it goes in safe. No longer put bag in there though. Got stopped by TSA once when they wiped bag and found power residue. Full pat down and search

Until recently, an Ikea Billy bookcase, with optional glass doors and shelves. I put weather stripping along the doors, and installed four halogen (NOT LED) lamps, and took off the "UV FILTER" cover glasses. This supplies a bit of heat (LEDs would not) and also some UV — both of which help keep mould at bay. I also have every packet of silica desiccant from any consumer electronics item I've ever purchased in there, and have had no mould problems, even in the sodden Pacific NorthWet.

(I guess I can't upload images to this so-called "photography" website…)

Countless other people have figured out how to, so maybe you can, too. There’s multiple ways to accomplish it and not all of them require a paid membership.

Always in their bags ready-to-go with spare batteries, lens cloths, air bulbs, desiccant, etc. ...

S1 + 150-600mm Sport + audio gear in a Flipside 300 AW II
S1 + 24-105mm kit + audio gear + alternate lens in a Slingshot 200 AW
GH6 + PL 50-200mm + 8-18mm (or 12-60mm) + audio gear in a Slingshot Edge 250 AW

...no jockeying gear around for this fella.
