A bag of percy pig sweets, and a kitkat

Based upon what josh listed this looks more like a briefcase / handbag type question than a camera bag

Generally it would be a diary, pen, roll up waterproof jacket type thing, maps if I am going to another office somewhere for a day trip.
Not much else really, perhaps for going home I would also have newspaper, magazine bought at lunchtime.

I use the one bag for everything. More cameras if I have them, clothes if I'm staying somewhere, but basically whatever bag you take with you.

I too change the contents according to the type of shoot I'm involed in, but generally it's :

Sigma 20mm EX f1.8

Large camera adapted Bulldog clamp.
Canon Compact camera
3 ft of tough kite string. (For tying back or pulling foliage into the shot.)
one large black bin liner. (To place over 'camera/tripod' setup for when it starts to rain. Saves putting away and setting up again.)
Mobile phone
Chamios leather. (To place over long lens and camera in light rain.)
one or two bars of 'Green & Blacks' chocolate. (If you haven't tried it......)
Large box of Tictacs.

This is normally carried or should I say pulled long in a large plastic tool box on wheels with handle as this is easier to move around and doubles up as a temporary seat or to stand on to gain a little height.

.........................and if it's a wedding, I'll carry a large amount! Wink

Most often if walking from home I just set off with the D7000 over my shoulder, Lee filter and polariser in my pocket and a lens cleaning cloth.
If setting out by car, everything goes in the boot and on reaching a destination I decide what and what not to carry.

In my Lowpro AW Rover
D300, ageing now, like me.
Sig 17-70, bit rattly now but workhorse lens.
Sig 10-20, bit of a novelty lens now and not much use, good ballast for bag.

Lee filter holder + 2 adapters
Various Lee and Hitech ND grads, all scratched.
Heliopan Polariser, way too expensive to scratch, consequently treated better than my wife and kids..
Spare battery, kept charged but don't think I've ever used it.
Spare card.
Cable release, finally a proper Nikon one after half a dozen cheap, crap Honk kong ones.
Spirit level, handy if I need to build a wall when up a mountain.
Kitchen roll, I dribble often.
Micro fibre cloth, useful when all kitchen roll is used up from dribbling.
Thin gloves, midge protection.
Silly hat with a net, midge protection.
Ganzie, midge protection.
Flask of coffee, I sit around a lot.
Cheese and jam sarnies, I've just reaquainted myself with childhood food and its great.
Bloody way too heavy tripod, lust after carbon fibre.
