Very interesting! Informative and well written. For my part, during my walks and my travels, I use the backpack ... on the back of my husband lol lol lol! Convenient, lightweight, easy to reach, I can bring more equipment. Sheers!

omg, i'm laughing so hard i can barely type.
wish i'd thought of that one.
i'll have to talk to my wife about it.
she'd probably agree to carrying the backpack, as long as i carried her.

camera equipment like fully mechanical build (tripods, bags) you can get cheaper used second hand.
Entry level digital SLR cameras and lenses.

Yeah, a lot to carry...
But don't forget all situations you don't bring the heavy gear!
Personally I love my Coolpix AW100 - even bring it when I'am swimming ;-)
Nikon system. D750 and D7100 are the latest cameras.

If you use an Olympus OM-E5 like I use, you just need a tiny bag. I carry an equivalent 14-28, 24-100 , 80-300 and 35 f/1.8. It all weight less than my Nikon D700 with 17-35mmf/2.8 lens! With the great gyro stabilization, I really don't need fast lenses. And the files are too big for Dreamstime. I have to downsize the 48mb file to 20mb. Less is more!

Great blog. As a person that cares little for my gear and more for the photos - I've had my cameras soaked in waterfalls in Brazil, dropped them in mud in Rwanda and banged them against trees in Uganda, had then freeze in Iceland and Antarctica and boil in Qatar, get snorted on by elephants in South Africa, played with by squirrels in the US and all sorts of other things - I have three bags, very small only for a camera, backpack for most travel situations and wheely bag for the big jobs - there's no perfect bag, pack for the situation and remember it's the photos and stories that matter - the rest is just gear.

No bag just my trusty D800 and the great Nikon 24-85mm, 2.8-4.

99% of my shots are created with this beauty, I get full frame 35mm equiv, great file sizes and am able walk around all day no sore back and know when I get back to the studio I'm not going to struggle with my pixels to end with a decent sized image.

All these LIGHT cameras are great but it's glass and pixels that matter, so I for one won't be going backwards to less than full frame.
Nikon D800.

Very funny and well writen. Never thought there is no solution, I just keep missing stuff I should have been carrying.

Ha ha ha. Shouldn't really be laughing (at you/with you) I'm just as guilty/bag-quipped. But I've got another to add to your eight - I have three Pelican cases for the times when gear has to go in the cargo hold. And yes, have frequently used the electric cart option; but not the bike. The boat, yes; but never the bike!
