What’s in my Camera Bag — 10 Comments

  1. Good morning Mary! I am totally in agreement that unless you learn how to use your camera, you could be using an expensive camera and not take great photos. I have the kit lens for my Canon, a macro lens and now I’m enjoying a 50mm 1.8 and I love it. Now, I just need MODELS! I went out yesterday a bit frustrated because I didn’t have anyone to take with me except a few props that resulted in just one photo, in the snow. But we go out and try to find something to photograph!

    I love my little DONKEY friend here! And that bird….

  2. I just have a little Canon point-n-shoot with some “bells and whistles”. One of these days I really need to learn how to use the bells and whistles! But for now, my phone’s camera does a good enough job for my purposes.

  3. We love our Nikon 7200, but could just as well have gotten the 7100 as we never use the wifi feature. It’s amazing how much nicer it is than the 5100 we used to have. I think it is partly the camera, but also the user knowing how to really use the camera in hand at the time.

  4. Thanks! I enjoyed reading that. I thought that maybe you’d purchased a Tamron. It sure is a great lens. I, too, have bought almost all my lenses lightly used – it saves a ton of money to do it that way.

    You are so right – the best camera is the one that you have with you :) Yesterday, I got some nice moose photos with a point and shoot. It was all that I had with me :)

  5. So interesting! I’ve always wondered what was in your bag! I love that camera strap. I need one so bad. So what kind of bag do you use? Right now I’m using a a regular backpack packed with towels to keep the camera safe. It’s so much easier to carry that way with the dogs.

  6. You have a nice setup of camera equipment – and you show again and again that you are very competent in using it. As these gorgeous photos illustrate. And you are quite right, expensive equipment doesn’t make anyone a better photographer. It’s the woman behind that counts.

  7. I have a Nikon D5500 but I am guilty of not spending enough time learning how to use it properly. When I was younger I had a Pentax that was completely manual and loved it. Now I got lazy and try to do too much automatic. I seem to have forgotten everything I learned back then! I hope joining the pet photography challenge will motivate me to learn more!
