    Hey guys,

    I was wondering if guys took your gear with you to work? I do.. You never know when there might be that perfect photo on the way home.

    I always carried around a Commuting Camera -- usually a Rollei 35 with B&W film.

    I've got my Rollei 2.8E with me today. I don't always carry it, but I've got several photos I plan to take on my way home.

    I carry an M6/50mm Summilux - always loaded with either HP5/Tri-X - for my commute to work, or when running errands. Because, you just never know...

    I take my gear to work frequently. I've actually made several pictures in the building and outside of it. Oftentimes I'm out shooting before or after and don't want to let it freeze or bake in the car.

    My Rollie 35 is with me most of the time, always when I travel.

    For a while I brought my 5x7 to the office but now the Olympus XA seems much more reasonable.

    No. I work in a food factory and glass in all guises is banned from the entire site. I suppose I could buy a cheap camera with a plastic lens and take that but I am not inclined.

    Always, keep my backpack (loaded with Maxxum 7, 70-210, 28-85, two 5400HS flashes and at least 6 rolls of film) at the back door - grab on the way out and drop back when I get home.

    I'm looking forward to traveling with:

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wanderlust/travelwide-45-camera

    I jumped on the bandwagon for the 65mm version, I really didn't need
    another camera, but the 65mm f8 hasn't been getting any loving since
    I switched to the RB67 last summer. I was looking for higher resolution
    and reduced weight. The RB configuration can weigh almost 11 pounds
    when I take it out with the 100-200 lens . . . The 4X5, and some holders
    should be less than 3 pounds !

    I currently carry my Agfa Clack, but usually have an OlyXA or a Paxette. But I'm lovin' the Clack-- even the blown shots are interesting, plus my aging eyes can still read a 6x9 contact print pretty well.

    Yes, most days. Who knows what picture you might need to take. I have the RB67 with me today.

    I have at least one camera with me most of the time because I have a long commute to work and back. Today I have my Olympus OM-1 with 28mm loaded with APX 100. In winter is worse because I'm prone to forgetting the cameras in my trunk. No damages so far...

    I don't work, I gave it up almost seven years ago and retired but I usually have a camera of some kind with me.

    I did when I gave the Photo-a-Day exercise a go a few years back. Usually it was the CLAed and refurbished Canonet QL17 GIII in a small traveling kit designed just for the project. It only lasted until March of that year, unfortunately, before the lack of time each day finally buried me.

    I need to be retired like Ben if I ever hope to complete anything of photographic significance. Until then, I'm doomed.

    I take my Rollei 35 S loaded with Provia 400 X with me whenever I leave home - if I do not leave with my Makina 67 or my Linhof 6x9.

    I'll take some to work if I am testing film or a new acquisition. I have a lot of boring, poorly taken, pictures of the Cleveland State University campus. Speaking of which, when it stops raining I have to test a few ebay backs for light leaks.
