I showed pictures of my new camera bag a few posts ago. You can see it here.
Marilyn from Serendipity (if you don’t follow her, you should, she is brilliant and witty) asked to see the inside of it. It was a bit difficult because it doesn’t open up wide. Which is probably a good thing or the gear would fall out.
I did the best I could. The flap was folded over for a better look inside and the arrow points to a flap that can divide that space into two levels of storage. Each space has velcro so you can adjust the compartments.
This one shows the area that holds all the little things. It is on the front of the bag.
The back will hold a tablet. We don’t own one. Maybe I will shove maps or a book inside.
From the bottom you can pull out a cover that will protect your bag from the weather or anyone tempted to open your zipper! 🙂
I picked this baby up on boxing day. It is on sale at Henry’s this week. It has been so cold I have mostly hung around the house. I did manage to get some shots of the moon with it the last few nights. I am really happy with my new lens.
Here are some pictures from today.
Both Rebel Girl and myself bought this cool camera carry system by Peak Design. I tried mine out today I might add another one for a couple of lenses. Peak Design is a kick starter company. How awesome is that? Check out their full line of products PD here. I am going to have to get a new camera bag or sling for all our toys..
When I don’t have my wife’s macro lens I have extension tubes. Are they as good? Nope! What they are is a cheap alternative, and they are just as satisfying. I would equate it to eating prime rib for three weeks, then being fed blade steak that was marinated. It was still good but I prefer the prime. I tried it with my 18mm-55mm lens canon, and the results were less than satisfactory. I switched to my 75-300mm and we are getting somewhere
Now I must admit I have only owned a Dlsr for 8 months and admittedly I have lots to learn. You only have to eat prime rib, rib eye, tenderloin, strip loin, once to realize blade steak although beefy is not quite as good.
My pictures are first with the 18-55mm lens, then of the 75-300mm lens with the tubes beside it. Then my pictures of the same crab spider in evening primrose that I took today that can be found here. The latter was taken with the 75 -300 mm lens and tubes.
Has anyone seen this yet? Not that I need it, being a hobby photographer, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting it.
How much fun could you have with that? Not with-in my budget. I could see if I was making money taking pictures. Who knows? Years from now, anything is possible. That would be a nice lifestyle change. Getting paid for something you love to do, talk about living the dream!
