Inside My Digital camera Bag | Andoni Lubaki

I prefer to journey as gentle as potential. For me, carrying a whole lot of weight is a trouble. I hate airports, their paperwork and their lengthy waits – and that with weight is what I detest probably the most on this life (that and the individuals who say “my cellular has extra megapixels than your digicam”).

What you see within the photograph is what I take solely to photographic orders or journeys for private initiatives. If the order is for video, I must deliver extra issues.

All this I put in a backpack ProTactic BP 450. We by no means give significance to the backpacks and luggage by which we put our belongings, but it surely is without doubt one of the most essential components of the entire workforce.


Two outdated Nikon D750’s, although I solely use one among them. I normally solely carry one among these cameras and nearly all the time with a Sigma ART 35mm f/1.4. With out a 35mm, I’m misplaced in any scenario.

I don’t like relying on ending the day in a spot the place there may be gentle. Many occasions within the desert there is no such thing as a gentle and it’s higher to save lots of the automobile battery to have the ability to begin if issues get ugly. That’s the reason I carry six batteries and a double Patona charger and one other of the identical mannequin in my backpack.

With them, I can take round 8000 pictures with out having to add them a single time. All of them properly saved in an affordable however resistant battery bag.


Like I stated earlier than, I’m misplaced with out a Sigma ART 35mm f/1.4. A lot in order that I carry one other backup Nikkor 35mm f /2.0 many occasions. I solely have one zoom, and it’s the Nikon 16-35mm f/2.8, which I take advantage of very hardly ever.

Additionally, I’ve an 85mm f/1.8 for portraits or issues not so distant as to make use of a big TV. I’ve no Tele goal.

All of them with their lens protectors. Toyota rides are sometimes hectic and it’s best to maintain the gear properly.


The photograph reveals a Manfrotto LED torch, though to scale back much more weight recently I’m utilizing a Petzl headlamp. So the identical factor that I take advantage of to learn at night time I take advantage of it to light up if essential or for inventive functions. The flash is for losers.

{Hardware} & Software program

Small recording gear with its respective cables. A Rode NTG and a few microphones within the black sq. bag that’s closed beneath. A Zoom H4n Pro4 with Senheisser mouthpieces, with sufficient batteries for alternative.

A Lacie 4 TB Rugged Exhausting Drive – I take advantage of it much less and fewer since I take advantage of the iPhone SE 2020 (with which I’ve taken the photograph) to make a backup. In 256 GB of reminiscence, I can match greater than 8000 pictures. Sufficient for a few months of labor, which additionally coincides with how lengthy I can go with out charging the battery.

I don’t like relying on charging my units and batteries to have the ability to work.

Currently, I don’t work with the pc both, except it’s video manufacturing. I take advantage of Lightroom Cell to catalog, edit, and perform a little touch-up. That whether it is essential to ship the picture urgently. If not, I hold them on the SD playing cards in duplicate because the Nikon permits me to make a replica on the fly (of the identical capability because the iPhone, 256 GB). The SD is always of the best brand, in that I don’t skimp.

Within the bag with tricolor rubber, I’ve a folding Bluetooth keyboard. With this I do the captions, write quick articles and do the fundamentals. 95% of my work is finished away from computer systems.

Below the digicam, there may be an SD card reader to obtain the pictures to the iPhone. After every journey, I’ve 4 copies of every picture. One on every SD card, one on the iPhone and one on the cloud (if the web has allowed me).


As essential because the gear talked about up to now are the miscellaneous gadgets. Those that may make all that gear described above nugatory or double its performance.

Additionally it is as essential to really feel comfy if you end up not working as if you end up. That’s the reason I all the time carry Photophoche books (on this case Cristina de Middel and Vasco Szinetar) and a literature e-book. I alter books or give them away after I learn them. I don’t just like the Kindle, I don’t have an Amazon account.

I’m nonetheless old-fashioned in relation to taking notes. For that, some Moleskine notebooks are essential, together with your 0.7 mechanical pencil and a few pens to right or be aware if the mechanical pencil runs out of spare components at that second.

A sturdy watch with out the necessity for a battery is the Seiko SKX 007 with a NATO strap. I believe after my brother’s head it’s the hardest human-made object that may exist. In addition to, aesthetically I prefer it and it is vitally low-cost.

Worldwide vaccination card, passport, enterprise playing cards and passport-size pictures to request visas and permits in several international locations.

Headphones for listening to music that I’ve within the yellow Nokia 8110 proven above. A powerful phone with mail and the potential of tethering. You can even put WhatsApp on it, though I don’t have an account right here or within the international locations the place it appears to me that putting in spy ware in our instruments goes in opposition to our personal work.

A paper agenda can be important. More often than not I’ve the iPhone turned off and I solely use the Nokia to speak. With the ability to see my appointments and future jobs shortly is important for me. I hate Calendar and all that type of software program.

On the high left, there’s a bag the place I put a toothbrush, toothpaste, drugs, nail clippers, lotions, mouthwash, tissues and a few vitality bars for emergencies together with water purifying tablets.

Within the inexperienced bag, I put the batteries, passport and all of the issues that I’ve to have available and I don’t like to hold in my pockets.

Closing recommendation

My last recommendation could be to pack your baggage within the easiest method potential. It needs to be probably the most comfy for you, the lightness and the sensation that there should not so many issues that whether it is stolen or misplaced, the world ends is essential to me.

There are commissions by which lightness is dominated out from the start – video in a battle zone, for instance. However principally, that is my gear and what I all the time have in my backpack. | @andonilubaki
