In my ninja 4x5 bag - lowepro fastpack 100:
4 film holders
busch pressman D with 150/5.6 Symmar-S
90/8 Super Angulon
Minolta XD11 with either 20 or 24 and 50mm lenses
Minolta flash meter III, loupe, release cable, other accessories
In the side pocket I stash a tiny Slik tripod and loop the panhead handle into the loop at the top of the bag.
I've got another bag coming, which will probably hold my RZ67 and/or EOS 3.
I have a re-useable Publix shopping bag (Publix is a large grocery outlet in the Southeastern United States) that I put my stuff in. 99 cents and holds EVERYTHING, I just wear my body.
Granted I usually have a Sony bag with all my lenses in it, and there are many....
28mm f2.8 Rokinon
28mm f3.5 Nikkor H
35mm f2.8 Nikkor
50mm f1.8 Series E Nikkor
55mm-135mm Vivitar Tele-Zoom
those are just film lenses in the bag, not to mention
75-300 Canon L lens, L as in "el cheapo"
All my cleaning supplies and probably 20 different filters.
If there were ever a contest to see how much equipment you could fit in a small bag I would have you all beat hands down, there was a time I was stuffing my Rebel in with all that before I bought my Nikkormat FT.
If I am careful with arrangement I can fit the Sony bag with lenses and both camera bodies with zoom lenses in the Publix bag and wear my Rebel XTi around me.
Canon T90, Vivitar Series 1 70-210 f3.5 zoom Canon FD 35-70 f3.5-f4.5 zoom, Canon FD 20mm f2.8 , four rolls of Fuji Velvia 100 and a Gossen Digipro meter, all in a Lowepro Stealth 100 bag.
Throwing the GS-1 into the bag, as today I'm going down to the customs office to retrieve my new waist-level finder.
Don't use a bag. I have a medic cargo pants picked up at supply depot, that I lined the knee pockets with foam. when shooting analog, I have only my EOS3, and 28-135mm lens which remains around my neck. Only 72mm polarizer is in my pocket.
When I shoot digital, I shoot either a canon 10D with same lens as above, or nikon D40 with kit 18-55mm, and SB400 on camera. I keep my 35mm f/1.8 DX prime in the lined pocket. Other pockets wouuld have:
1) Lens Pen
2) 512MB memory card
3) Exra camera battery
4) 2X AA battery for SB400
5) 52mm polarising filter
No wonder I shoot more film
