It’s a ThinkTank Retrospective 5 bag. My favorite camera bag of all time and I went through a couple of them. Of course it doesn’t hold all the items listed below. This is all my APS-C gear from Fuji.

On my trips to Asia I only take the X Pro-2, the XF 14/2.8 R, the XF 23/2 WR and the XF 35/1.4 R and maybe the Canon G7X. On big vacations where I focus on landscape/wildlife photography I take the zooms and add one or two primes.

Out of nowhere it is finally there: Our second trip to the USA. Three weeks again, South West again but there is one big difference. After three great vacations in Canada and the one in the USA in 2010 this is the first time we rented a car! All other vacations we very going around in RV’s. I opt for a smooth transition by renting a Full Size SUV and because this is the land of supersize I got even more: A Chevrolet Suburban. Continue reading
