My new camera bag is now geared up and ready to go to Quechee, VT for the Balloon Festival. I may or may not have access to do posting this weekend. We shall see.
I know I said that I may be getting rid of this camera bag. At least I’ve been saying it to friends and family when they see the bag. I was thinking about giving this bag away and getting the step down model, the FastPack 250. The things I don’t like include the waist straps. I see them as being in the way. Also I find it a bit too big for travel. I know this will not fit under my seat on the plane as well as my current travel backpack (I love that thing and have had it for 7 years and it is still in fantastic shape after countless flights).
But the FastPack 350 is a bag that holds a ton of stuff. I have my Nikon D80 and my two Sigma Lenses (a 28-70mm and a 70-300 macro), I just bought a Giottos Rocket and it totally cleared out the dust from my camera (I wish I had this last week) and so that lives in the bag. I also have the Canon 800is and the Canon Z850 camcorder and the Sanyo EC1 and the charges for each. Extra batteries, lens hoods and room for a 17inch widescreen laptop, yeah this baby can take a bunch of gear.
We may or may not make it up to the Glow. This is a nighttime event on the evening before the balloon festival. It starts around 6:00 but it may take us a bit longer to get there because we need to stop for dinner too. we shall see.
