Hi!

I own a 600D, and I love it, so the camera is great. The kit that comes with it? Meh, it's ok. You've got the standard kit lens, so that's nothing special, and a bunch of lens cleaning bits which isn't anything special.

I doubt the wrist strap will get a lot of use. The desktop mini tripod thing? Handy if you're going to make a load of Youtube vlogs, but probably not if you want to make films seriously, like you say. You'd be better off going for a proper tripod with a nice pseudo-fluid head designed for video, not stills, so you can do smooth camera pans.

As far as the monopod goes, I've never used one, but they're more suited to stills photography, I feel. I don't think they'd be a lot more stable than just being hand-held.

The car charger is a nice idea, if you're going to be out a lot, but I bought an aftermarket battery grip from Amazon that came with 4 batteries, and lasts for ever!

The 32GB card is a great size, but is it going to be an unknown make of card that isn't fast enough to record a long video recording? I've not shot a lot of video on mine, but I've got 16GB Class 4 Sandisk cards, and I sometimes get the graphic on my monitor of the camera's internal buffer filling up, and have occasionally have recording stop on me, so you've got to have good, fast cards.

You do want a nice backpack, but it needs to be roomy enough to allow for some other lenses, and it's impossible to tell if that bag is big enough. I got one, again from Amazon, that is pretty good, and accommodates all my spare batteries, my 3 lenses (kit, 50mm & 70-300mm), my filters, mics, cleaning kit and cables and is well padded and pretty sturdy.

The filters pack might be nice, depending on what's included. It looks like a clear UV which is really only a lens front element protector, a fluorescent filter, and a neutral density filter, which is good if you're filming in bright conditions but want your iris wide open. Also, they'll only fit your kit lens. If WHEN you expand your lens collection, those won't fit it. Your best bet is a kit like this that allows you to put the same set of filters on to a range of different lenses..

What else? Oh, the telephoto lenses...Hmmm... I'd question how useful they are. It looks like those screw on to the front of your existing lens. It's my experience that those things give you a pretty soft picture. You might like that, but you'd be better off getting a proper telephoto lens.

I think that's it. Wow... I've not be very kind about that package, have I? If the price of that kit is the same as buying the camera on it's own, then you're not losing anything. You DO need a bag, a cleaning kit and spare batteries, so that's all fine.

But lenses & filters are things that you should only acquire when you realise you need them. The kit lens will be a nice start for you, if you're new to photography/filming. I VERY quickly found that I needed a zoom lens, so bought a cheapy Tamron 70-300mm for under a hundred quid that I like very much, as well as the famous Nifty Fifty mm f1.8 prime that gives me a great shallow depth of field, and is my favourite lens!

I hope this has been helpful!

u/chucksense · 3 pointsr/photography

You won't find a faster lens with comparable focal lengths in your price range. You might be able to get a 24-105mm f/4L very used at that price, but new it is more than 3x that.

Your best bet is to invest in a faster lens that doesn't cover the same focal length and keep the 28-135mm around for flexibility. Alternately, upgrading the 50mm f/1.8 to the 50mm f/1.4 is a great move: better picture quality, better build quality, much more accurate auto-focus, and nicer bokeh.

In my mind, however, take that $300 and save it. Your needs are fairly well enough met that buying another $300 lens doesn't add much value. If you are truly dedicated to upgrading, save that $300, the next $300, the $300 after that, and one more time: then get yourself some truly nice glass.

Regarding bag, I've had great success with the Lowepro SlingShot AW series. It's a single-strapped backpack that swings under your arm for quick access. It's less than $100. It might not be quite what you are looking for, but they are great bags. B&H Link | Amazon Link

Thanks /u/lamic

I looked through your post and recommendations, it looks awesome! I know I really should wait for the Hero5 but I'm not sure if I can wait.


I started to put a list of things I want/need into a spreadsheet, to start looking at Price. I have Amazon Prime so I'm thinking about ordering everything through Amazon.


Can you take a quick look through my list and see if everything checks out and if I missed anything for "Basic" operations? Then could you make any more recommendations, or let me know what my next purchases should be?

  • GoPro HERO4 SILVER- $338


  • Memory Card Lexar 64GB- $35, Looks like the cheapest one between Sandisk Extreme and Lexar, Lexar currently is the cheapest on Amazon

  • Batteries - Wasabi Power Battery (2-Pack)- $22, Read a few reviews and people said they like these batteries a lot. Should give me enough juice and let me know how long I can record with, until I'm completely dead.


  • Protection Lens - $7 I really just need to lens protector, in the reviews people are saying some parts don’t fit the Hero4 only the Hero3. Or should I put the $20 version off the actual GoPro site?

  • GoPro The Tool$4, Like you requested and reading some comments it looks like it would be worth it.

  • A basic Card Reader - $7, did a quick google search on best card readers this one popped up for best for it’s price.

  • SANDMARC® Pole - $40, Looked up some reviews and people tend to like this one. It seems like is always recommended to have some kind of stick or holdable mount to start off with. Also could you go into a little more detail about mounting the GoPro?

  • Pelican Case -$25 I like the idea of it being waterproof and I like to be organized with my stuff. So this looks like a perfect fit. And it will be an awesome case to travel with.

  • Kingston 5-in-1 Mobile Companion - $35 I was watching some videos and it seems like this could be a cool little gadget to have. I would mostly use it for “mobile uploads to Hard Drives”. Working in IT I know how important it is to have backups, and this will let me get around bringing a laptop to the resort and other stuff. This is the video I’m referring too that shows you how to upload to a HD with out a computer.


    So with everything in my cart I’m sitting at $488 which is with in my budget.

    I’m still reading about the remote. That might be something we add down the line. I think I’ll be pretty content with just my phone app or getting the “waterproof touch screen” case cover too.

    Do you think this is a good setup? Will this get me going? Do you have any recommendations, or anything that I should add or not buy yet?
u/bondjaybond · 7 pointsr/Filmmakers

I recently picked up almost everything on this list so I can give you an honest opinion and I'm a vfx artist trying to get out there and shoot my own content.

The fisheye....we never use it. We shot a prom and that was the only time we used it, and that was for b-roll because the kids loved it.

Definitely pick up the Sigma 30mm f/1.4. It's such a great lens! I almost use if for everything I do, but it's also good to have a wide angle lens. I currently use one of my buddy's which is a Canon 17mm-85mm.

Nodal Ninja I haven't seen before, but looks great.

Video tripod is good, I use a Manfrotto 502 but it's way more expensive, so this looks like a decent alternative. Also, the quick release plates are awesome. You'll eventually want to pick up tonnes of these. I used 2 yesterday to put on both the bottom of my new slider, as well as the top. I have one on my cage as well.

You can probably do without the Shoulder Rig for now. You may consider using the Kamerar Tank 2 cage with rail system to hook up the Kamerar Follow Focus. I found that once I got my Tank, I just disassembled the shoulder rig and never used it since. The Glidecam is something that I've been considering as my next purchase. Check out my thread asking about the glidecam.

Definitely grab the NTG-2 and possibly a Zoom H4N. The sound quality is fantastic. You need an XLR cable, windshield, boompole, and a shock mount.

Kamerar's Follow Focus is solid. It gets a little cramped using a smaller lens, the follow focus, and a matte box though. You have to tinker with teeth to learn how you need to set it up properly so that the teeth don't slip.

The Matte Box, while nice to look at, hasn't proven it's worth to me. I shoot with the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 and because the lens is so short, the matte box does very little to block out light. I just got the new "donut" in the mail yesterday so maybe that will help, but I wouldn't advise getting it when you can spend that money on something else.

And the backpack is pretty awesome, definitely worth picking up. If you travel to shoots I would recommend the Pelican 1510 to store all your stuff in.

I would also recommend grabbing a couple LED lights and the batteries and charger. These things are a life saver. I'll be picking up a third this week.

I hope this helped you out a bit. Like I said I was in a similar situation to you a couple months ago, but everything's coming together now. If you have any more specific questions about any of this, let me know. Take care.

u/TonyDarko · 4 pointsr/photography

That was an excellent and thoughtful gift, kudos to you. Aside from the lenses, there are a few other things that help a lot when starting out in photography (I'm just figuring this out as I'm pretty new):

  • A tripod can help if he wants to take low-light pictures and set up really long shutter times (it basically makes it so that no shaking messes up his pictures) and it can help to take pictures of you guys. I'm planning on bringing one for a trip with my girlfriend and I so we can take cool pictures where there may not be other people to help out.

  • A good bag or backpack would be great, increasingly so as the amount of gear that he has goes up. It's tough to carry around all that crap, and these bags make it pretty easy to fit.

  • a strap, pretty self explanatory. carrying around a DSLR in one hand sucks.

  • Extra memory cards and possibly an external hard drive are nice because RAW camera files take up a toooon of storage and having backups is always nice in the case that a really important picture gets corrupted.

    As for lenses:

    Nikon 35mm prime (basically allows him to take pretty nice, wide open landscape pictures at great quality)

    50mm prime widely regarded as the best starting lens (another no zoom lens that is an all-around all-star that is pretty versatile. good for portraits, landscapes, etc)
u/GIS-Rockstar · 5 pointsr/photography

I wrote an article on intro DSLR kits on Amazon. I wouldn't bother unless you bundled them with your camera.

They're definitely crappy extra toys, but they may help you learn more about photography (by showing you how things make your image quality worse); but they also were kind of fun at the beginning and encouraged me to get out and shake the bugs off and dig into learning how to shoot good photos (and how extra toys don't really help). Everyone takes shitty photos at the start anyway, so you're not missing much; and it's not a ton of extra money over grabbing a body/kit lens/good SD card; but if you already have your camera kit, you can skip it for sure.

DO NOT USE THOSE TRIPODS!


Those are strong enough for point and shoot cameras at most. Especially with a telephoto lens, the tilt arm is likely to fail and it'll fall on sensitive optical mechanics. Those are in the $10 price range. Spend at the very least closer to $30 on a tripod, and a $100-ish tripod will be a safe, and useful tool to use with your precision imaging equipment.

tl;dr - Sure, it's a waste of a little money, but they can be kind of fun toys. Burn the tripod.

Stuff I'd suggest getting:

  • 2-3 nice SD cards: Class 10, 32-64 GB each

  • Another few cheaper (but still fast) SD cards: 4-8 GB

  • Solid tripod. $30 or $100 is well worth the money

  • Rocket blower. Avoid touching the lens, whenever possible and never touch the sensor. A lens cloth should be plenty. Avoid being tempted to use a wet cleaning kit on the lens or the sensor if possible

  • I love my big, cheap camera bag. I have 3 lenses, and a speedlight and this is perfect for me. I wear it across my chest and carry it on my lower back where it's out of the way and easy to deal with 95% of the time.

  • An Intervalometer that matches your camera

  • Manual flash that can tilt & swivel

  • Flash triggers are fun and work great with those cheap $10 tripods. Check Strobist.com for great tutorials and inspiration

  • Flash gels can be fun creative tools too. Can you tell I'm getting into playing with off-camera speedlights?
u/Jsreb · 2 pointsr/HawaiiVisitors

> Not to get too flyertalk-y, but what rental company? I'm crossing my fingers w/ National as an executive member that they'll have a convertible or something decent (fun) on the aisle.

  • I paid for my entire trip with points/miles. All the car rental companies are very similar. I used Budget since it was the cheapest. The cost was ~3,338 pts/day using my Sapphire Reserve through Chase's booking site. (YMMV)

  • /u/manachar made some great points from a local perspective. However, I don't think renting a convertible is impractical for visitors. Driving around a beautiful Hawaiian island with the top down was a wonderful feeling and I wouldn't want it any other way. But that's my preference. I'm from the midwest where people appreciate any opportunity to feel the warm open air when driving.

  • Car theft is a problem in many areas of Hawaii and nearly all Mustangs/Camaros are being driven by tourists. However, a little common sense goes a long way. Don't walk away with the top down. Don't keep valuables in the car.

  • Also, a general point to consider is what you'll do with the key fob when you go to the beach. I did not want to leave my belongings on the beach unattended, so I bought a Pelican 1010 case to keep my key fob, cash, and cards dry when snorkeling.

  • A majority of the roads are in great condition. Some back roads and parking lots can be rough but I never felt that the Mustang was incapable of handling them.

    > I'd like to as I've heard good things, and some of the stops (e.g., waterfalls) seem interesting, but I'm not sure if I'm up for a day-long drive or doing this as an overnight trip. I might look into one of the tours

    It was a great experience but over-hyped in my opinion. I would still recommend it. There are several beautiful waterfalls, cliffs, distant scenic landscapes, and hikes (although most hiking I did was in West Maui).

    > I've heard! I guess that's a perk of this being a work trip!

    In that case, check out Mama's Fish House! It's costly, but worth it. You'll need to make a reservation days in advance.
u/lamic · 2 pointsr/gopro

So word on the street is the Hero5 will be coming out soon. I would wait until that happens and swipe up the Hero4 Silver or Black at a reduced price. These will be perfect for what you're looking to do and you can swap out SD cards and batteries. Something like this is good and it comes with an extra battery - should help keep you charged up for your trip. As far as your question about SD cards - not all SD cards work with GoPros. You can search around on this sub for more but personally I think the easiest thing to do is take the ones that they sell on their website and then go find a better price on amazon, newegg, etc.

As far as other accessories, I'll go ahead and throw out some of my personal favorites. I use this pole. It's really durable but you'll need to swap out their little tripod mount on the top that holds the camera in place for one of GoPro's tripod mounts (I can go into more detail if you need). I always keep my lens cover on mine whenever it's not in use or in my pocket just so I'm not scratching or smudging up the lens. The tool is great because it can be hard to tighten the thumbscrew sometimes to keep your camera in place. Even though it's a bit costly, the remote was totally worth it - especially if I'm around water and can't use the app on my phone to control the camera. Finally - you've got to have something to put it all in. I know there's cases out there that are made for GoPros + accessories but I love my pelican case because it's water proof and I know I can take it anywhere without ruining the stuff inside (i.e. SD cards, batteries, chargers, etc.). This is the one I have. In hindsight I wish I would have gotten one just slightly bigger so I could fit a few more things but I love it. Sorry that's a lot but I hope it helps.

i own [this bag] (http://www.amazon.com/Canon-Deluxe-Backpack-200EG-Cameras/dp/B00009R6TA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1345132719&sr=8-1&keywords=canon+200eg) by canon, its waterproof/resistant- whatever the term is. it can fit a laptop depending on size of the laptop. if you have a 17" laptop- youre gonna be hardpressed to find a bag to fit it anyway, or even a bulky 15" laptop. its nice to have a bag that fits both to get on a plane or light travel, but if youre gonna be trekking your gear on a hike to take shots then i wouldnt worry about carrying the laptop.
this is the [tripod] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004E51ZLU/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i00) i bought about 6 months ago. the quality is awesome, you dont want some cheap tripod holding $2500 worth of camera gear.

[here] (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OiqD7v9mKPY) is a review of the tripod if youre interested.

i also have the 7d, i got a used battery off ebay for $35 shipped that works perfect, otherwise cheapest online is like $60+shipping for new.

some other recommended gear if you have the money- buying or renting a 70-200 f4L, buying or renting a wide angle lens (im sure hawaii has beautiful wide landscapes) if youre interested in something like that. [lensrentals.com] (lensrentals.com)

edit: actually for the price, if youre gonna rent the 70-200- i would rent the 2.8 non-is version cuz its only like $12 more for a 4 day rental. and for wide angle, id recommend the tokina 11-16mm..

  • I'm probably posting a cliche photography gift here but I absolutely love mine: Lens Mug


  • Can't go wrong with a BlackRapid Strap


  • If your brother takes a lot of landscapes and doesn't already have this must have tool in his gear which he should: Camera Remote Timer


  • If he's always on the go and seems struggle w/ carrying his tripod everywhere, I recommend getting him a Gorilla Pod

  • If he doesn't already have a great backpack for travelling while he is shooting his landscapes, I recommend Amazons Backpack for holding his gear. It's essentially a generic version of Canon's basic backpack.


    You can also find some fairly cheap "like new" film cameras on Craigslist along with some film.
    Film cameras are the best and it will probably be very nostalgic to the person you are gifting it to.


    I'm making the assumption that he has a Canon DSLR but you can find most of this gear if he has something like a Nikon, Sony, etc... One thing I love to receive to as a photography gift is more batteries! I use to shoot a lot of landscapes and I could never have enough of these.

    Anyways, hopefully you find something for your brother! Good luck!

Canon Deluxe Photo Backpack 200EG
Price: $40
Pros:
Cheap
Looks like normal backpack
Padded walls
Some Adjustable Velcro walls
3 SD card pockets
Several general purpose pockets and pouches
Bungie cord pouch on the outside, great for stowing light jacket, water bottles.
Tripod straps on the bottom to stow tripod underneath
Chest strap on the front to keep it securely on you

Cons:
Canon branding on it (thief magnet) easy to remove as I did.
No official laptop pouch but I crammed one in it once.
Not much room for magazines, etc, if you're taking this on a plane.
Too small if you have a lot of gear or long lenses. Says "two camera" in description but I'd only use it with one.


Holds all my common gear so I can pick it up and just go. In the main space it holds my Camera plus kit-size lens in the top, and I can fit a 70-200 zoom under that in center Chanel pocket. Side padded walls on right are left standard for my three lenses, on the left side I removed one wall to fit my flash, and that still leaves a place for my GoPro or flash diffuser. In the smaller pockets there are pouches to keep things organized. I have a tiny travel tripod in one, a RF remote shutter trigger in another, and a USB SD card reader, all right where I expect them. It seems to be fairly weather resistant from my use. I'm not worried when it starts raining.

Things to improve: could use higher quality padding in gear compartment, but it's amazing for what you pay for. Could have an easy access type zipper for the camera or for a second camera, but that's what pro bags are for. Could be a bit larger to accommodate laptop or more gear, but for a simple bag that holds more than enough camera gear for most situations, it's a great value.

u/agentrandom · 1 pointr/Android

The Hasselblad Moto Mod got poor reviews. At least those that I read. The reality is that a DSLR or mirrorless camera can capture far superior photos due to a much larger sensor. To add that to a phone (addon or otherwise) means not only a lot of extra bulk and cost, but a bulky lens. You may as well be carrying a dedicated camera at that point.

It's not as bad as you may think. I travel a lot and all my camera gear fits into this small bag that doesn't take up much room in my hand luggage on flights. The total cost for a 35mm lens and budget DSLR for me was £300, though I also carry a 55-300mm telephoto lens for wildlife shots. The body, lenses, spare batteries and a GPS addon (budget DSLRs don't tend to have that) all fit into that bag. It may look bulky, but easily fits into even Wizz Air's small hand luggage allowance and leaves plenty of room. When walking around, it's just a small bag on my shoulder. Without the second lens, I could use a smaller bag still.

My Pixel has more smarts than my Nikon, but the DSLR can capture far superior images.

To add to what others have said re: the RZ67:

I have owned one for a while, and I’ve taken it out on trails, all-day photo walks around towns I’m visiting, etc. It’s not light, but the secret is to pack correctly.

I have a semi-springy camera strap on mine ([this Optech](OP/TECH USA Super Pro Strap - Design B (Black) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00092LFW6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_uqxCCbS7WE39X)) which reduces the impact of the camera weight on your neck with each footfall. It has the added benefit of acting as a brace when you’re shooting slower speeds. Stand still, hold your breath, and let the entire weight of the camera hang from your neck. Reduces camera shake from handholding.

So what I do is use a backpack for all of the gear. I strap the tripod to it, put the other lenses in there with film, filters, extra film backs, etc etc. Light meter in my pocket. Then I wear the camera with a lens around my neck. The weight of the backpack and the weight of the camera help to balance each other out a bit, so you’re not too heavy in the front or back.

You’re not going to be winning any marathons or trampoline competitions in this configuration, but it is doable.

As far as cost, you’ll be fine. I bought my kit piecemeal, and only bought things basically in perfect condition, and still probably only paid $1100 for the body with waist-level finder, three film backs, and four lenses (50, 90, 110, 180).

Film backs are available in 6x7, 6x6, and 6x4.5 so you have multiple format options at your disposal (although I rarely use my 645 back since I can just crop the 6x7 in the darkroom if I want).

If you have any questions about the camera or system I’d be happy to answer them for you. Out of the (20? 30? I’ve lost track) cameras I own, the RZ is my distant favorite.

I'm an annual pass holder at Disneyland. My fiancee and I also went to Orlando and visited all the Disney parks there last year.

-I recommend getting the photo package as well, even if you plan on taking a lot of pictures yourself. They generally do a great job and add special Disney effects that are pretty cool.

-If it's a day long trip to the park, invest in a quality photo backpack. I used the [Dakine Mission Photo Backpack] (http://www.amazon.com/Dakine-Mission-Photo-Backpack-25-Liter/dp/B00DUO2JPM) when we went to Orlando. Keeps your gear secure, lots of room for extras, super comfortable, and even has a rain cover (which came in handy on multiple occassions)

-I got a separate memory card for each park I visited. Makes it easier to go through later, especially if you are looking for a specific picture at a specific location for instance

-Personally, I don't like neck straps so I got a Fotasy Neck Strap Very comfortable and I wore it whenever I wasn't on a ride.

>The gimble, it appears to be VERY fragile, should I be concerned when making tight banking moves, and should I always keep the gimble lock on when transporting the drone?

-Yes, always lock it in while transporting. I feel like all it would take is one good drop or catching it on something while storing it and it could rip a cable or part off.

Im new to the game as well, but so far these are the things I have picked up for my G6:

first, i bought a G6 kit that came with some handy stuff

I have also purchased

A slightly better tripod

A flood light

Battery pack for said light

Variable ND Fader for filming out doors

Rode shotgun Mic

Zoom H1

Lav mic to go with the H1

Headphones to listen for levels

Triple Mount Hot Shoe

Backpack to hold everything

This is just a fun lens, and its cheap the 50mm means its a 100mm equivelent, so its for really tight portraits, but the low aperture is good for low/light and for a very shallow field depth. When I am able to use it, this lens produces the most popular results when i post them online.

new strap cause the one that comes with the G6 sucks!

What i want to get:

A bigger zoom lens I am mostly interested in videography(weddings etc), and this would be good for back of the house shots)

I’m looking for a 20-30L camera backpack!

I currently have the Lowepro Photosport 200 AW , but it doesn’t hold all my gear + adventure gear anymore. I need something bigger.

My gear includes Canon 7D2, 3x lenses (one 70-200 tele), Mavic Air + controller, assorted adventure gear/ layers. I’d tend to want more space than less if given a choice.


I’ve looked into Lowepro’s ProTactic 350 AW and 450 AW . I really like it’s rugged and tactical design. The 450 seems a little too big since I like being able to keep my backpack between my legs on buses/ cars/ planes. Will the 350 accommodate a similar size? Should I go with a bit of extra room in the 450?

I’ve also looked into F-Stop’s 32L Lotus , and Kashmir 30L . Having already purchased the Medium ICU makes these an easier purchase. My concern is that they might be too big to travel with easily. What are people’s thoughts on the company and design of these two?

What other factors should I consider in a bag? What other bags or companies should I look at?

Anything helps! I’m trying to purchase NOW during these cyber Monday sales so anything helps!!

Anything helps! I’m trying to purchase NOW during these cyber Monday sales so anything helps!!

I'm not sure why everyone is pointing you towards Pelican, especially for a first bag. Great bags, but they're pretty hardcore.

I bought a Lowepro Slingshot 202 AW for my first bag and its a great bag. Great protection, plenty of room for gear, super quick access to your camera, and it even has the pull out cover for inclement weather. This was my primary bag until a month ago, but I still use it if I don't need to take all my gear.

The best way to attach a strap is to get an original set of lugs and an original strap. There are also good aftermarket straps such as a number of OP/TECH straps that come with lugs.

I actually like the RZ67 and 645AF straps the best for my 1000S, and you can still get them new. I got a new-in-plastic black RZ strap, with a gold embroidered "Mamiya" logo and lugs, on eBay for ~$25.

I've never heard that there are different lug sizes out there, but that wouldn't surprise me -- Mamiya made the 1000S for like 15 years. Most of the changes happened in the first few years though, such as the shift from the "Mamiya" logo to the "Mamiya 645" logo, the introduction of the "S" accessories (updates to the originals, like the WLF S, PD Prism S, Extension tube #3 S, the 55/2.8 S and the 45/2.8 S), and the replacement of the original 105-210 with the updated one, for example. After about 1980 the system was pretty stable.

u/Numero5 · 2 pointsr/amiibo

Normally I'd recommend something like a camera case for amiibo on a flight, but if you're short on time, it may not be possible to purchase any sort of case.

Fortunately, you said you only have three amiibo and kept the boxes, so that makes things easier. I'd recommend stashing them in the plastic bubble and tray that they came in. The plastic is meant to hold and protect the amiibo while shipping to stores, so it stands to reason that they should work for transporting on a flight.

Tape the plastic peices to each other as well as you can so that they don't separate. Stash them with your clothing as that will provide cushioning, and it's quicker/easier than trying to get lots of foam. Make sure the amiibo are covered by clothing on all sides, including their top and bottom. As long as you pack them tightly enough that they don't jiggle around in your luggage, they should be okay and flight ready.

(Also, the plural of amiibo is amiibo)

Well, super expensive IEMs often come with a small Pelican case like this, and that's probably as good as it gets for IEM cases.

As for me, I just use the case I got with a different pair of IEMs: https://s22.postimg.org/8k2egs5mp/IMG_20170228_104532.jpg

(in fact, the IEMs with the case are cheaper than many cases on their own and are amazing value for the price in terms of build quality, sound, and overall polish)

Works pretty well, and there are plenty similar cases available on Amazon if you just do a search for "iem case"

u/Lucksack · 1 pointr/trees

I can't speak for op, but amazon has been having some pretty good deals on them lately. I think op probably has a 1200(I do to in orange for a travel minitube), which is around $38 right now. They're great carrying cases though, they do a great job of protecting whatever is inside them.

u/sarkastikcontender · 1 pointr/AnalogCommunity

It definitely started out pretty clunky, but I'm super used to it at this point. I walk miles with it around my shoulder or in my bag, shooting mostly handheld. This is the strap that I use and I would recommend getting something similar. It's a heavy camera, and the extra padding this strap has is super helpful.

u/hackofalltrades · 2 pointsr/vfx

I do this, quite often. I work remotely from home every day, but when I travel I work even more remotely.

Basically , the day before I'm going to leave I pack up all the plates and support files I'll need to do my work onto a USB 3 drive. All my folder structures etc are mirrors of what's on my home system.

I have a Macbook Pro with as much ram as they offered 5 years ago.... (still 16 GIGs.... sigh)

And I take a plethora of USB 3 drives. I also have a second USB 3 powered 15 inch screen. I use a powered USB 3 hub, a wireless mouse and occasionally a full sized wireless keyboard. I also have a Wacom tablet and 2 of each species of cable in case something goes wrong on the road.

I do all my work building my project files on my Macbook Pro, get everything dialed in etc. Then I use dropbox, or my own FTP, Google drive or some other thing to send myself the project files.

I then use splashtop screen sharing software to remote into my home machine, drag the project file into the correct location in the folder structure, open it on my home machine, and render it there.

My main job uses Shotgun for reviews, so I log in from home, upload my quicktimes, then upload my DPX's to their server... all of this happens pretty much real time, and doesn't really rely on super fast internet other than to support the video share to home.

Your portable system can be whatever you can afford, but I'd spend the extra money and get as much ram as you can cram in there.

It makes a WORLD of difference having a dual monitor setup on the road. I always feel cramped when I step down from my dual 27 inch screens to Dual 15 inch screens, but, it's better than a single screen!

This is what I use, there are others but what's great is it folds flat
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00H0FK2A6/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I use a Lowepro camera backpack with a laptop area
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000YIWR8G/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I can fit my Macbook Pro, my Wacom Tablet and my Monitor in the laptop compartment.

Then I have the camera compartment to store my Digital SLR, an extra Lens, and additional pockets for cables, hard drives and power supplies.

(Individual results may vary.... but my kit usually is in the 75 pound range)

It's heavy.. but I have yet to be anywhere out and about where I didn't feel I could bust open a portable studio and do whatever was needed. Shoot, I even did some emergency work while onboard a cruise to Norway! (Shipboard wifi is CRAP!)

u/splatterhead · 4 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Thanks! Non-referral link works great and everything was in stock as of a second ago.

Wow, prices are crap though.

I was looking at a 1510 carry-on size for my laptops and Amazon has it at $169.18 & FREE SHIPPING (You Save: $102.77 (38%)), B&H has it for $146.22 + free shipping already.

u/geekandwife · 3 pointsr/WaltDisneyWorld

I had a neoprene "condom" for it if I wanted to toss it in my backpack, but I didn't even bother to pack it after the first day. The best thing I got was a knock off black rapid sling strap. https://amzn.com/B0062W02C6 is the exact strap. It made carrying the camera so much easier and comfortable. Even with a back pack on I had no neck strain or anything like I would with carrying a DSLR normally.

I did have a gallon size zip lock bag that I carried in my pocket and that allowed me to quickly bag it up if it was going to rain or I was going to go on a water ride. Went on Splash Mountain holding it in its ziplock and it was fine. And in the rain I would just put it in the bag for those quick showers.

As far as rides, I did get a few shots that while not good enough to share, will be used to remember the rides and such, having something more powerful than a point and shoot meant that I could bump up my ISO and take decent pictures on most every ride without a flash.

I would highly recommend if you want some of those once in a life time pictures to go ahead and take it. Shots like the dragon breathing fire would be impossible on most cameras, and cell phones lack the zoom needed to really frame the shots and to get the low light for things like the fireworks shots.

u/Goliath89 · 2 pointsr/magicTCG

I'll save you some time and link directly to the product in question.

I'm currently using one of these myself, and it's pretty good. If I take out all the velcro padding, I can fit all six of my Legion Hoard Plus deck boxes, but it's a pretty snug fit. With the straps, I can fit four of them, as well as two Ultra Pro Pro-Dual deckboxes. (Not a plug for those items or anything, just offering them up for scale.) It has a few side straps over a pocket on the side (meant to hold a camera tripod) that you can use for a playmat, but only if you don't plan on using one of those plastic carry tubes.

u/bdfh · 1 pointr/photography

I put all my gear on a shelf and I installed a strip of LEDs to light it up, so I can see everything better. The accessories like filter cases and table-top tripods are in a box and rarely get used.

I have the AmazonBasics DSLR Backpack and it is amazingly good for the price. It doesn't offer as much protection as other backpacks, due to the softer padding, but it sure keeps your gear safe. I've been using one for years and I'm satisfied with it (although it's pretty ugly).

u/SilverKnight1337 · 1 pointr/photography

So I have the Amazon Basics DSLR Backpack currently. I love it because it holds everything I currently have.

My issue is that I really want a bag that is a bit smaller. I want something that can hold me Canon T3 with attached nifty fifty and old 35mm lenses and well as a flash. Budget is roughly <$75. I also like the vintage look for whats its worth.

I have been looking at the following cases but most of them seem to small for what I want to use them for.

u/responds-with-tealc · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Skip Skullcandy, please.

Read this buying guide from /r/headphones. Sure SE215s are one of the standard suggestions. The price isn't ludicrous, they are extremely durable, and the cables are easily replaceable (the part that fails 99% of the time). There are cheaper options if you don't want to spend that much, but not with the replaceable cable.

The most important thing you can do to make your headphones last is don't wind them up and shove them in your pants pocket, bag pocket, and for the love of god don't leave them plugged in to your phone and wound around the screen. Get a small hard shell case for them and use it to transport your earbuds when they aren't in use.

If you want to get fancy, get a tiny pelican case and some pick + pluck foam. Or just get an old Altoids mint tin and glue some miscellaneous thin padding in to it.

I use IEMs for ~5 hours a day, 5 days a week, and have never broken a pair. I've got excessively nice custom IEMs and a great case now, but I used the same strategy for years beforehand with much cheaper stuff.

u/housedengue · 3 pointsr/AnalogCommunity

Congrats!

Just a few tips I've come up with since I've owned mine:

  • Get a really good neck strap. I use this one.

  • I would recommend having two film backs so you can use two different types of film at once. It's nice having a 100 ISO and higher ISO or a color and a B&W roll going at the same time. Having replaceable film backs is the big perk of this camera.

  • Also, having a monopod makes it easier to take shots while walking around.

  • I store my entire kit in a LowePro backpack. It makes it easy to carry and lug around.

  • Definitely get a shutter release cable. I use it all the time when I'm shooting on a tripod. Since the camera is so heavy, not touching it means there is less of a chance of it falling over.
u/jam6618 · 1 pointr/videography

I know a lot of guys that fit all their gear into a backpack, a roller case, and a support bag. Backpack being any camera backpack, I usually see ones that are full camera and not half camera half accessory. Roller cases being any kind of rolling pelican case type. Some don't need a roller case and can fit everything but support into their backpacks but it depends. The support case pretty much always has wheels and is long and square, like this tenba one.

u/zantopper · 2 pointsr/photography

Solid advice on all fronts - more memory cards is definitely one of my biggest must haves when I'm somewhere remote. Even when you have a laptop and external with you, it's not always convenient to upload a card right away to free space so having spare cards handy is a big plus. I wait for the amazon sales and buy a bunch of cards at a time.

Having spare batteries is also something that's especially useful in a remote place. If I'm headed anywhere where power is not always available I bring along 4 spare batteries.

If you're going to be shooting in places where petty theft is an issue, having a shoulder strap like this one: http://www.amazon.com/Fotasy-NSQF-Anti-Slip-Comfort-Ergonomic/dp/B0062W02C6 is really useful - it fastens under the arm, so it makes grabbing a camera out of your hands or from around your neck a lot harder....these shoulder straps are also a lot more comfortable

u/bobbfwed · 5 pointsr/AskPhotography

First things that come to my mind:

  1. This tripod is so absolutely fantastic, and cheap!
  2. A fast lens or two. Either a zoom at f/2.8, or my suggestion would be a prime (50mm or 85mm -- or both) at f/1.4 or f/1.8. These primes will yield incredible results, and are reasonably priced.
  3. A flash. Something that can be used off or on camera. Something you can slave/master would be best.
  4. A polarizer for your best lens(es). Polarizers make a huge difference when taking landscape photos or photos with a lot of reflections.
  5. One of these two backpacks could make being mobile so much easier! This one or this one. I have owned the first for a couple years now -- taken it all around the world, don't have a single complaint.

    Hope some of these ideas help.

I use 2 bags. A lowepro fastpack 100 and a fastpack 250.

Fastpack 100 feature. Carries my Canon T2I while equipped with a battery grip, and my 55-250mm telephoto with lens hood off. Can carry extra lens like my 50mm with hood on. Main pack hold various items such as my flash, business cards, memory stick and extra batteries.

Fastpack 250. Holds what said above but with lens hood on the telephoto. Can carry multiple lenses about 4 pockets I believe. Just a little larger size in the main pack and holds everything that came with my camera like the cables, etc. One major thing I love about it is it has a zipper slot for a laptop. But for me I use it to carry my portfolio.

http://www.amazon.com/Lowepro-Fastpack-100-Black/dp/B000YIYNOW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1345944525&sr=8-1&keywords=lowepro+fastpack+100

They are relatively cheap considered most bags are expensive. They are weather proof. I mostly use my 250 but only complaint is how bulky it is so it's great for heavy traffic via people. So if im doing a shoot i use it as base camp to swap my gear in and out. The little bag is amazing for travel like car shows and various should to shoulder events. Id recommend the sling version.

u/dolichoblond · 2 pointsr/Watches

Depends on if you want to display them or not. There are a ton of display type cases. Wolf Designs gets good marks and is well stocked in North America. You can go way up in price from there.

Pelican cases are also great, functional, DIY solutions. Especially if you have a collection with lots of sizes, extra straps, etc. There are a lot of threads at WUS discussing sizes and showing layout possibilities; I followed something like this one. Then I got a smaller case, the Pelican 1050 which I use for traveling. Since I made the holes for the pipe-wrap the same size, I can just grab 2 watches out of the big box and quick swap them into the small case and head out the door. It works so well I even got another 1050 that has 1 watch slot and 1 space for cufflinks or strap changes or other random stuff. It's heavy and big but for business trips where you're basically wearing a suit & watch or sleeping, I'm not sweating the luggage space.

I noticed that the Pelican cases are super-expensive on the amazon.ca site. You can definitely get them for cheaper (ebay) and perhaps even local. Heck, for the price difference you can drive to BUF. Check camera shops as they tend to stock them, although usually the larger sizes (not sure about Futureshop...maybe Vistek?? or smaller shops?)

EDIT: not all pelican cases come with foam. especially true with the smaller ones. sometimes there are two options (with and without) when ordering online. just fyi as I don't want you getting stuck with double shipping if you do order online from the south.

u/ParkaBoi · 6 pointsr/Nikon

In your position I'd keep the 18-55 until you get a replacement. The 35mm has the same field of view as 52.5 lens on an FF body so you won't have anything at the wide end and there is not a lot of money to be made selling kit lenses, so keep it for the moment.

I have an Amazon Basics sling backpack that I'm very happy with. It's nice and light, can easily take a body, two lenses and other bits and bobs (battery, filters, etc.) and it's really well padded. Good price too.

u/BernoulliMagic · 2 pointsr/EDC

Fellow rider here... I like to store some of my equipment in pelican cases. Pretty rugged and will add a decent layer of protection for your phone/wallet. I'm guessing you're not interested in the tankbag route, but check out a few links I'll list below:

http://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Hard-Carrying-Case-5-Inch/dp/B004I5BUSO/


EDIT: I saw you prefer the items to be securely closed inside, so a grid-it could be an option inside one of the AmazonBasics cases or a similar case... but not as likely your problem solver...

and another option would be (if you didn't want to zip it up each time but wanted it to remain secure under the seat) to add a grid-it organizer

>How often do you guys use telephoto lenses?

This depends on things you'd like to shoot, if you like landscape, almost never. We have a 70-200 that never leaves the house, longest I usually bring with me is a 85

>If I do end up getting one, do you think I would find scenarios where I wish I would have one?

Usually you need it for the reach, in a concert, a wedding, a zoo, trying to grab subjects you cannot otherwise get closers

>Is the SEL55210 a decent lens?

it's a good lens, personally, much like my 70-200 I never used it much.

>I'm really confused with telephoto lenses because even high-end lenses have pretty slow f stops.

the platform you bought into prefers size over lens performance, it has nothing to do if it's high end or not

>And about aperture, how do you know what aperture you should shoot at?

It depends on the look you are going for, the light that's available and the amount of things you want to be in focus (depth of field).

>I've read that most lenses lose quality beyond around f8 or f11. Is that true?

not necessarily loss of quality, but the focus of light start to break down call diffraction. It typically starts to appear in smaller apertures and only become noticeable in extremely small apertures

>Does that mean that you should never really go above that number?

A small aperture is needed if you want a larger amount of subjects in focus, or you need to reduce the amount of light entering the camera. You can also use a small aperture to give certain looks to the bokeh balls or lights. This photo here shot with the 14mm 2.8 at f22, you can see it forced everything to be in focus and gave the lights a 6 point star look

>I also noticed from my moon pictures that the most in focus one was actually at ~f5 and focus wasn't set to infinity. How does aperture and focus combine to make the moon more in focus at those settings than others? Or maybe it's user error since it was the first time I tried to use it.

On Sony E lenses, infinity is actually a few hairs below infinity focus, it's best to manually focus yourself by zooming in

>And filters.

Different folks will have different opinions on filter brands and the type of filters you should get (I only use CPL and ND, I feel that UV is a sham). But if you want to save money, buy a larger filter, like a 77mm and then purchase step down rings to use them with all your lenses

>And final question, how do you bring all of your equipment with you?

keep your camera out and with you, have the Sigma 19 on it, carry the other lenses in camera lens pouches

I own one of these myself, and smile everytime I get to use it. I love so much about it. My favorite parts are the quick response when shorting the leads checking continuity, great display, data logging graph capabilities, and the visual continuity indicator. So much more too.

I paid full price for mine. Meter, case, AC amp clamp, and thermocouple ran me $800. You REALLY got a great price.

It may be big, but I have smaller meters for handheld operation if need be. Definitely buy the strap to hang it when using.

Im not sure the dimensions of the Rodecaster Pro but maybe a case like these Pelican cases? The foam on the inside kind of pulls out so you can fit what you need into it nice and snug. Im sure there are less expensive types of these cases as well, but perhaps this can be a starting point?

I was just thinking about this. I picked up a Pelican 1200 on Amazon for $39.99 as part of last year's Black Friday sale. It's currently listed as $67, but I think this is somewhat of a mainstay for their annual sale. I don't know that it's 'non-bulky', but it's definitely strong and the pick and pluck foam makes for a nice custom fit for my 1911.

This kind of goes against the 'engineering' aspect of this sub, but I bought a case like this a couple years ago for my tube. It's fairly small, it's probably 4" wide across the base and less than 16 inches tall, but this case (or one similar) is absolutely perfect for carrying and protecting glass. It has foam padding on the inside that is a bunch of connected square foam pads, so it's very easy to cut a design that will snugly fit your piece. I also was able to cut out separate slots for my bowls, downstem, grinder, and pill containers.

Maybe you have a box or something that would fit your glass, and all you'd need is to find some foam to fill the inside.

I've never used the Monoprice ones, but Pelican cases are widely regarded as the gold standard. I have three and the damn things are indestructible, and I would buy any of their products sight unseen based on their name and reputation alone.

That being said, Monoprice almost always provides a very good product for a very competitive price, so if you're looking to save a few bucks, they would be an excellent alternative. Looking at the photos on their site, they look quite comparable to Pelican offerings, and many are IP67 rated.

Compare -- Pelican 1510 ($160) vs. Monoprice Hard Case 12182 ($75.99). Looks nearly identical to me. Bit of a size difference, and minus the metal reinforced padlock holes, but you also save $84. Note that you have to pay shipping with Monoprice, though, and that can be spendy, so in the end the final price difference between the two will be less.

u/drewforty · 2 pointsr/cigars

I bought a "Cigar Caddy" 5-stick travel case (amazon) 5 months ago and have been satisfied with the purchase. It is a little small and won't fit 5 bigger-gauge sticks, but it is just wide enough to fit a few NUBs vertically on one end.

Bonus, I got to handle it and a friends OtterBox dry box at the same time, and can confirm they come off the same assembly line. Only the sticker was different. This is also the same product as the "Herf-a-Dor" seen here.

If you are really rough on them, maybe re-purpose a Pelican like this one?

Possibly a camera bag, or if she likes to collect cameras you could always pick up a fairly decent working film one for ~100-200 or often times less if you look harder. Twin lens reflex cameras are always pretty sexy. I got a yashica-mat for around 100 dollars (if you care to see it). Or maybe a reflector if she does a lot of portrait work

Edit: I have a Lowepro SlingShot 202 AW, I like it but I hear mixed reviews from other people. I'm a big guy and I do a lot of walking around/trudging through foresty areas and I've never had a problem with comfort, size, or moving around like others have.

u/alaskaj1 · 1 pointr/CampingGear

It sounds like what you want is a pouch like this. I have a similar one for my phone but it's more for splash protection and just in case I drop it in the water, I couldn't say how effective these type pouches would be actually submerged.

I have a small pelican 1060 case that I usually store my phone and keys in. Again, i haven't dunked it but i would trust it a little more than the phone pouches for keeping things dry (I would trust something like the pelican 1120 even more) But it's not as handy and easy to carry as the pouch.

u/Muzzi26 · 2 pointsr/photography

The koolertron from amazon, seems really nice, but there are a lot of them on amazon and measure out the inside dimensions of whatever bag you're using to ensure you get a good fitting one. I also take parts of the soft padding from my other camera bags I've collected over the years so that really gives me a custom setup.

For lenses you can also get something like this

Awesome! Thanks for the compliment! I already had the pelican 1200 case, but you can order the "pick and pluck" foam inserts off amazon separately. I especially like this one because of how secure everything is, and because the case is waterproof.

I have the pro tactic 450 ii but this is the first version that will work just as well for 100 less. I’ve used it for travel to carry a 15” laptop and charger and 2 camera bodies with 3 lenses, edelkrone slider and batteries with a little extra room near the top. The bag is also slightly rigid so everything inside is semi-protected and it has three separate openings to the main compartment from the left, right and top of the backpack for quick and easy access.

If you only need to carry one lens and one camera you can save even more money and get the lowepro 350.

u/bracomadar · 2 pointsr/photography

I have the T3 and if she is starting out on DSLRs and just want to shoot portraits in well lit areas, I'd say it's a great starter camera. You get a basic DSLR for really cheap. However, I like to shoot wildlife. While I can often take some good shots with the T3, there are times where I really wish I could pump up the ISO without a lot of noise and it had more AF points for tracking. I try to not take it above 400 ISO. If yall have kids and want to shoot sports, you might run into similar problems I have with wildlife sometime. I personally haven't tried shooting sports with it, but you might be trying to follow fast moving players (maybe at a night game) and that could cause some frustration. There's also been times when I really wish I had a flip out LCD screen.

I think what a lot of people fail to realize when buying a new camera is all the starter gear that you'll want/need. You'll want a backpack, or case to store the camera and lenses. This is the backpack I got. I really like it and it's cheap. I haven't taken it out in the field much and just use it mainly for storage at home, or in the car. She'll want a few lenses. You'll need a cleaning kit. She'll also eventually want a tripod, flashes, filters. This stuff, especially the lenses, tripod, and flashes will run you into the hundreds of dollars. It will also probably be the longer investment than the camera.

It might sound strange, but I would suggest you figure what all that other stuff will cost you and figure out how much you have left to spend on the camera body. If you're just starting out and don't have thousands of dollars to spend, the T3 is still a good camera to start out on and learn the basics. If after figuring the cost of lenses and other things and you find you have enough to spend on the T3i, or some better model, I say get her that. You don't have to necessarily get her the lenses and could just get her the T3 kit that comes with the 18-55 lens and a camera backpack just to start her out. I'm just saying that you should put some money aside so she can get a few good lenses and gear and not spend all you can afford on just a camera.

I've kept mine in this bag, which is perfect. Build quality has been really good so far, and it's big enough to hold my DSLR + kit lens, a 50mm prime, as well as two GoPros, their respective cases, multiple mounting solutions, a small GorillaPod tripod, and pockets for SD cards/readers, manuals, spare batteries, and chargers as well.

Not sure for laptop, but I've been able to get quite some milage from an amazon bag link What I like most about it is it's good for hiking, but the zippers, by god the zippers are smooth and great to opperate. Only disadvantage is that it's a backpack

u/CaliforniaBurrito · 1 pointr/photography

I use a couple of bags -

  • Lowepro ProTactic 450AW - Large, fits a 15" MBP, a couple of bodies, lenses and room for flash and other goodies. You could reorganize this space to accomodate for books and school supplies. I've loaded it up with three bodies, six lenses, and a MBA and it's still super comfortable to wear.

  • Tenba DNA 13 - Great messenger style bag. This is my daily carryall bag for work. I can fit my MBA 13", two bodies and two lenses easily. Looking back I wish I would have went with the 15" model for when I upgrade to a 15" MBP.

  • The Everyday Messenger - Have not received this yet from the Kickstarter campaign but it's due to come in before Christmas. Bought this messenger to replace my DNA 13.

    Lowepro makes a smaller version of the one I listed, you should locate one locally and see if it fits your needs - I really like it.

u/tonydaazntiger319 · 2 pointsr/Filmmakers

This sounds right up your alley: Case Logic 206 SLR and 15.4" Laptop Backpack

If you're looking for something super heavy duty and more expensive then you might like this: LowePro ProTactic 450 AW Backpack

I know those are very popular and if you just enter "Camera and Laptop Backpack" on either Amazon or B&H, you'll find lots of options that might suit your tastes better.

u/Werm_Hatt · 1 pointr/bourbon

It depends. I have two main ones I use, this one and this one.

The 1510 easily holds 4 or 5 bottles, the 1650 is about double. It's hard for me to say exactly because I'm usually hauling beer as well. I've never had a bottle break on me but I do put each individual bottle in a sealed gallon ziplock. The pull a part foam that comes with the case works ok to pack them with, but I usually end up adding some bubble wrap.

One other thing if you go the pelican route - don't just buy it straight from Amazon. They go on sale a fair amount, check Camel Camel Camel and setup an alert. I got my 1510 for $80 and the 1650 for about 30% off if I remember correctly.

u/melez · 2 pointsr/flashlight

If you get some spare batteries, I'd recommend a water resistant case like the pelican 1010, that'll help keep the moisture off em and 65mm long cells (18650, 26650) fit great in those.

Also if you're looking for more cells, illumn.com is a reputable site for batteries and I think the keeppower ones would work, specially mentions the L6.

u/KimchiSoondubu · 2 pointsr/buildapc

You'll probably be looking at a Mini-ITX form factor and case. I'd recommend the Node 202 or the NCASE M1. The 202 is much cheaper however and both support full sized GPUs (the M1 supporting up to about 12.5" GPUs in the right configuration.) Someone seemed to have found a carrying case that fits the M1 almost perfectly here as well.

This is the bag I just got, it is great at storing my Canon 6D along with a lens and several filter pouches, I am not 100% sure, but I think it will have enough room for a second standard lens. Also the back is SUPER padded, feels like I'm carrying a cloud.

u/david57strat · 2 pointsr/flashlight

I've been using these Pelican 1010 cases, since 2012, and I love them!

I wouldn't dream of using any other case for my batteries. Besides being heavily water resistant, they're also dust and shock proof. They also have a one-way air purge valve.

To me, they're the perfect battery case, and are very reasonably priced.

I use them for 14500, 16340, 18650, and 26650 batteries. They're perfect!

You can pick them up here.

Edit - adding these additional pictures, the first one, showing four 18650s on the top layer,next to two dual-CR123 sleeves.

Here is a close-up of the hinge assembly. The constructions on these, is very solid.

This one has a 12-(R)CR(23 insert. I picked up this one from Battery Junction).

u/cubility · 1 pointr/trees

Pill bottles are pretty airtight and don't smell too much for me, but i mostly use them for joints or baggies.

As far as grinders, pipe, etc., a waterproof case like this is extremely smell-proof and comes in many different sizes. I even saw a walmart brand case like that for pretty cheap in their camping aisle recently.

u/yourotherusername · 3 pointsr/photography

I've got the one of the slingshot bags and I love it. Used it with my d50, took it hiking, camping, skiing and flying. Love it. Now I have my D5100 in it and it is still great, + holds 2 other lenses, my flash, batteries, cards and my charger. Easy access to all things. has an all weather cover too, only used that once, but glad I had it.

Not so sure it is 'inconspicuous'.

u/SleepyHolly · 2 pointsr/Multicopter

With the Pelican 1510, I assume you mean you want a case that can fit under FAA's maximum carry on size with rollers and handle plus all the usual pressure o-ring...

Google's top hit is on Amazon for $170 sold by Pelican

MCM's equivalent is the 24130 for $77: "22 inch Rolling Black Weatherproof Equipment Case with Telescopic Handle"

I'm not associated with MCM or these cases. I do however bought a similarly sized one for my gear and love it. The build quality is only about 90% of Pelican but for most of us that don't do trade shows should be perfectly fine with these. Alternatively, buy two of these from MCM for less than the Pelican version of your case.

u/VRegg · 3 pointsr/Vive

I'm guessing everything will be consolidated into one box unlike the Dev units to make shipping easier. I'd doubt they put much thought into a portable case.

But don't worry I am sure there will be third parties that release a custom case. In the meantime, you can search for "Gadget Bag" on Amazon and other retailers. I could see many of the larger bags designed to accommodate a big DSLR cameras working well. Just don't forget to measure and account for the extra space needed for the tether.

I think something like this would work well, and the orange would be a nice touch to make it aperture sciency. http://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Large-Gadget-Orange-interior/dp/B00CF5OHZ2

Pelican case I use this one with this pluck foam. Now granted it won't work for some taller tanks unless you take the drip tip off. I've taken it camping to set on top of the ice in the cooler to keep things cool. I've. I ended up getting a shallower one to keep my coils in that I purchase premade. This case is tall enough to hold 18650s upright. I believe it's 4 squares of the pluck foam is the size to hold the battery stable if you don't have a separate case for batteries.

Yeah it's hard sided case but I really really love it for carrying my supplies for a weekend out.

u/Barking_at_the_Moon · 1 pointr/Beginning_Photography

I'm in your league as a big guy but have more gear to store/lug. Most of my shooting is sports/action or nature/macro stuff with the occasional family portrait at holidays. I'm definitely an amateur. For most of my shooting, I rely on four basic styles of totes:

  • I use a wrist strap. I don't own this particular one but something very similar. I don't much like neck straps - they're too loose when I'm moving to keep the camera secure and in the way when I'm not moving. When I first bought one of these, I was surprised at how often I used the plate/stand that attaches to the bottom of the camera.
  • For a single camera with an everyday lens: DSLR holster I don't own this particular one but something very similar.
  • For a little more gear but still small: DSLR gadget bag I own and use this bag.
  • For a day spent shooting: DSLR backpack I own and use this bag.

    I've got a couple of cross body sling packs that I've never liked - they always seem to be in the way or bouncing around - so they've ended up stuffed in a corner somewhere or holding the small bits of loose camera crap that seems to accumulate like dust bunnies.

    When/if you get to the point that you're hauling lights &c around, I've found that most of the time a simple (and long/huge) duffel bag is the easiest solution.
u/HappyKlutz · 3 pointsr/GiftIdeas

What about a nice backpack with camera inserts to keep his gear safe and maybe a iron on logo for one of his favourite games?

I did a simple black backpack with the fallout 4 logo on it for my then 24 yr old partner and he loved it. It wasn’t too in your face, if you weren’t a gamer you would never have realised it wasn’t just some random print.

I made this guide because the selection for bags that actually fit the HTC Vive well are either poorly constructed, overpriced, or both. The only case actually intended for the Vive I could find was this overpriced monstrocity, and this, even more overpriced, even larger monstrocity. So I did some digging, tried out a few things, and made this guide.

It's big and you look like you're carrying the nuclear football, but my friend and I each had one of these. It would fit everything and store easily in the lockers. The partitions allowed storage of multiple study models, various stacks of autoclaved instruments -- you name it.

u/cwcoleman · 2 pointsr/CampingandHiking

Okay... I think we are getting closer to helping you define your requirements...

All your camping gear will be in a separate bag.
You need a bag to carry 2 big cameras, 3 big lenses, 2 big hard drives, extra batteries, and a gopro.

-----
What do you estimate a bag this size would be in liters? 20 liters?
What do you estimate this kit to weigh? 20 pounds?

You plan to strap this extra gear bag to your chest? Carrying in at the same time as your camping gear bag? Then switch to wearing it on your back for your day trips?

Any special features you desire? Does it need to be waterproof? What about padding?

Do you have any bags that you've researched / considered? Do you have a bag now that holds / carries all this stuff? A starting point or frame of reference would help.

Would a bag like this do the job? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002VPE1WK

u/AsleepConstruction · 2 pointsr/Cameras

check out this amazon basic, I have the same bag and it worked pretty well before we moved to the peak design. I remember seeing a 3rd party one where it had an orange interior which I recommend, easier to see everything, since most camera gear is black.

u/asosaki · 1 pointr/photography

It's definitely possible, ESPECIALLY if you're willing to buy refurbished.

Canon 60D

Canon 70-300mm IS USM

meFOTO tripod

SanDisk 16GB memory card

Camera bag

2 extra batteries and an extra wall charger/car charger

Lens Pen (to clean your lenses)

Rocket blower (to clean your camera)

Done. All under $1500 (when I did the math it came out to ~$1400 for all of this). And you can even buy a cheaper bag or use one you already own if you so choose. Or a different brand of tripod. I just chose that one because it can fold up compact and it's pretty light so it's easy to travel with.

u/trogdoor17 · 3 pointsr/CampingandHiking

You can try looking into Pelican Cases. They make little watertight boxes perfect for rugged activities. You can't use your phone while it's in the case, but it's a great protection for things you're not using during hiking: phone, keys, ID, cash, credit card.

Edit: Link to product

Friend of mine was doing this so I copied. it works extremely well.

For quick grab and go, I grab that and the controller separate with the stick guards in a backpack or something.

For everything I have this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005VTIMEQ/

u/sfiodsh · 6 pointsr/smashbros

Pelican cases have to be some of the most durable things ever. It is as if Nintendo gave them a big supply of Nintendium.

But seriously, these things are amazing for keeping your stuff safe. It looks like OP used a 1200, http://www.amazon.com/Pelican-1200-Case-Camera-Black/dp/B0002INQT2 , which is a really nice size. You can store it in your bag and not worry about your controller getting torked.

u/MacintoshEddie · 3 pointsr/backpacking

What you're looking for is a pack with a good, sturdy hip belt. The hip belt transfers most of the weight onto your hips, rather than your shoulders and thus your spine. A lot of cheaper backpacks will just have waist/hip straps rather than belts, and really all they do is keep the pack from flopping around rather than supporting weight. Hip belts are not magic though, and even with the best support in the world you might still experience back pain.

You should be able to go into just about any hiking/camping store and talk to an employee there who can get you fitted(different people have different shaped bodies, and especially with spinal issues you need a pack that fits right), and offer recommendations.

If you haven't looked already, depending on what you need to transport a rolling case might be a better idea. Something like this Pelican 1510 carry on case which has wheels. On a bus it's not going to take up much more space than a pack will, and you can use it as a portable seat.

What sort of gear are you transporting?

Edit: This is an example of a waist strap and this is an example of a hip belt. They are just the first two options I saw on the website, I don't have experience with either of the packs but I tend to hear good things about Osprey.

Its perfect for my needs. The camera "compartment" holds everything I really need to carry, the pouch on top is a good general area, and then there is the laptop slot so I can carry my MacBook air. Its the perfect bag IMHO...

u/Zalbu · 2 pointsr/photography

Does anybody have any recommendations for a decently priced camera messenger bag? I'm going to go hiking soon and I was thinking about getting something like the Peak Design Camera Clip, but they're pretty expensive for what you're getting so I might as well just go with a regular bag.

I don't really care about looks, just that it's somewhat durable and easy to access your gear. I don't need a gigantic bag since I have a Sony A6000 with the 18-105 lens and will buy the Sigma 30mm and 55-210 down the line.

Does anybody have any experience with this?

You could use a camera insert, basically just the padding portion of a camera bag.

I have this one and it works great for my Fuji + 2 extra lenses. You might want a bigger size to fit a 70-200 though.

I just throw it in my normal Kelty backpack. I figured, I already have a hiking pack and a normal backpack that I like a lot. Why buy another just to fit my camera?

A 3-piece razor is liable to break if you travel with it assembled. The guard you link will protect the blade, but won't do anything to keep the head of the razor from snapping off.

You've got three good options. Keep an extra razor at your girlfriend's, disassemble the razor whenever you travel, or put it in a hard case that will protect it from breakage (preferably with cut-outs that keep the razor from shifting around). Something like the Pelican 1010 can hold a razor, a small brush, and a shave stick.

Here's the SlickDeals link where I originally found it. $60 after coupon code. They sent an email saying it's backordered but only by a week or two.

If anyone is looking for a cheaper option, I almost went with this surprising product by Amazon. It's the cheapest photography backpack I've ever seen, and the reviews are actually very favorable. Of course I don't own it so I can't personally vouch for it.

I have the Canon Deluxe Photo Backpack.

For ~$35 its a great bag. I took it to China when shooting a documentary and fit the following into it a Canon 60D, a 50mm 1.4 and a 28-135, a Rode Videomic, a gorilla pod, a handheld rig, a Zoom H2, headphones, many wires, extra batteries, etc. Its a strong bag, and it has two loops on the bottom to carry a light tripod, though if it is too big it is pretty hard to carry in that fashion.

It's a nice bag, I wouldn't recommend wearing it for a hike longer than 4 hours but if you're just using it to carry gear from place to place I'd really recommend it.

u/SuitSage · 18 pointsr/DnD

It's this case with this foam in it.

They're designed so you can use that case to store different shaped valuables. The way that works is that the foam is actually a bunch of 3/8" x 3/8" squares that extend down which are easy to pull out to remove. I removed the corresponding squares (well, about half or 2/3rds of the way down or else the cubes would fall down too far). Then I just ransacked my copy of Love Letter & Heat for the small red cubes. I also taped on a piece of paper with the sorcerer table (for reference). This is actually pretty crucial since otherwise the cubes could fall out into the lid of the case between sessions.

The intention is that you would on a long rest, place cubes into the spell slots that you have available. Then every time you cast a spell slot, remove the cube and put it into the larger hole underneath. The sorcery points would ideally have a better token to track, but I just used mini d6s which would function similarly (on spending, move them to the large hole). There's even a spot in the bottom right where you could put a mini I think.

For under $20 I think it's a great value. The quality is better than I expected, the pad and straps seem pretty tough. The clasp, while metal, seems a little cheap but it could be swapped out for a stronger one. I still have the original on there for now and it's been fine so far.

The thing that concerns me about this style of strap is that since it attaches with the tripod mount threads on the camera, if it unscrews... you'll drop your camera. I don't intend to ever use this style of strap without a safety. I put a loop of paracord through one of the swivels on the camera body and I can clip that to the strap so that if the bolt unscrews or the clasp breaks, the camera won't fall to the ground.

u/methinks2015 · 1 pointr/photography

I have D3300. I got an Amazon Basics camera bag, am pretty happy with it so far. And at $22 it's a pretty decent deal.

What else are you looking to carry in it? I've had the Lowepro fastpack series and loved it. I had the Fastpack 350 so I could bring my laptop and other goodies but you could get away with the smaller one depending on what you want to bring. I just got the new Manfrotto Advanced Tri Backpack because I wanted an attachment to hold my tripod. Once you figure out how much you want to bring (lenses? laptop? tablet? tripod? extra bodies?) you can narrow down what bags you want. I'd say look at Thinktank, Manfrotto, and Lowepro for starters.

u/schwack · 3 pointsr/Vaping101

My setup is a little unique because I tend to go a little overboard on e-liquids and tanks. I've gone through about 5 or 6 mods since I've started vaping, and have been content with clearomizer setups for a while now. Although with the new Kanger Subtank i picked up, I'm anxious to get into building RDA's.

This is the case I got for Christmas, and the price is good. The thing I like about most is it's toughness and removable foam. The whole inner bottom half of the case has foam installed like a grid. You just remove only the squares you want to make the case cater to your setup. I generally take the case with me anytime I hang out with my vaping buddies, or when I'm vaping at the stores.
Here are some pics of my humble setup. http://imgur.com/AedGGwv , http://imgur.com/rEtlzfS , and http://i.imgur.com/Q1MBbBs.jpg

I keep a couple juices in there, always have spare coils for my setup and for friends who may need one in a pinch, a spare tank to switch up my flavors, and batteries if I so desire. I've seen a lot of people who are really into rebuilding use tackle boxes for a similar purpose. I just preferred the toughness and flexibility of this one.

So for anyone looking around for a good bag to carry 10-15 deckboxes, playmat, binder, notepad, dice, other accessories. Look for a camera backpack. Often they have them at thrift stores/Goodwill for $5-10 or less. They have foam dividers and sections on the inside that are perfect for deckboxes. Look for one with a side pocket meant for a tripod - this is perfect for a playmat tube.

The one I use is a Manfrotto almost identical to their Adventure bag but I got it from Costco for $40 and I love it, but I don't think they sell it anymore.

A lot of people swear by the Amazon Basics camera backpack.

u/not_charles_grodin · 1 pointr/perfectgift

This camera bag is my quick, go-to bag when I'm in a hurry and need the essentials in a small, durable container. It holds just enough to get the job done and is the perfect size to lug into most situations without drawing too much attention to yourself. Also, there is a perfect spot to get it monogrammed right under the logo, which you should consider because these are very common in certain circles. Plus, even with monogramming, your cost is less than $50.

You'll want to become familiar with how the mirror lockup mode works (and get a cable release), as that's going to be pretty helpful with slower shutter speeds.

Also in mirror release there's sometimes a delay between firing off the shutter and the shutter actually firing. Not a long one, could be a fraction of a second, but it's enough to catch you out if you're rushing.

Don't rush this camera.

You'll probably want one of these.

Also use cheaper film for the first test roll (I like using Fomapan 100 to test cameras... actually it's a nice oldschool film but it's usually less expensive than Kodak or Illford) since your filmback might have light leaks. Mine does around the hinges (I wrap the thing in gaffer tape, at least until I get my hands on a new seal kit.

I would go with a shoulder strap rather than a neck strap.
I own This one for my t3i. There are some nicer ones with better features but they're much more expensive.
This one is plenty durable and very very comfortable compared to a neck strap.

I agree with /u/david57strat The Pelican 1010 case is the way to go. Can fit (11) 18650's in it without modifying the foam inside the case, and waterproof. These silicon rubber sleeves are great for tossing a single battery in a backpack

I use an amazon DSLR bag and have gotten pretty pleased with the setup: https://smile.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Large-Gadget-Orange-interior/dp/B00CF5OHZ2/

http://imgur.com/a/ciyEb

Currently I have 2 EDH decks, 2 Standard decks, and my limited box in there, and there's room for 3 more standard sized boxes stacked on top of what you see in picture 2. Side pockets have dice on one side and another deckbox with tokens on the other, front flap holds pens, scoring pads, DCI card, and usually extra sleeves or whatever.

The limited box has 9 of each land sleeved up (I'm terrible at deckbuilding and can't afford to waste time sleeving lands) and 40 or so sleeves for the deck and a few sideboard cards.

The playmat tube attaches to the front (straps meant for a tripod), which is adequate at best. I wish it could strap down to the top instead, but it works well enough.

Recently traveled on American with firearm for the first time. They did make me open the case on each leg of the trip to put the signed acknowledgement in.

Also used pelican case the "carry on sized" one and Abus locks.

In the Omaha airport they just tossed the case on the carousel with all the other luggage. The other airports were better at following policy.

I estimate it added 15 minutes to each departure and arrival. Was mostly amazed at how easy it was.

Hey there!

I currently have this right now.


In the main compartment I can fit my Nikon 3200 with a lens on it, as well as some spare lens (70-300, fisheye, 55-200) as well as a few spare things for my GoPro.

In the pockets on the front I have an o ring light and all the adapters for it.

There is still a zipper on the front I keep random stuff in.

And it had a Velcro spot on the side for your tripod :)

u/hallflukai · 1 pointr/photography

What are you traveling for and what kind of pictures are you trying to get? If you just want pictures for the memories and don't care as much about a shallow depth-of-field or absolute sharpness I'd go with the two zooms. If you're looking to get artsier I'd leave the 18-135 at home and replace it with the 24 and the 50.

Either way the 24 is small enough that there's not really an excuse not to bring it, plus it's an amazing walkaround lens.

Bring the tripod, always.

Honestly all things considered, I think you should get a DSLR backpack and you could just bring all the gear. I have the AmazonBasics one and can fit my full kit in it and it has straps on the side for a tripod.

u/PooTommy · 1 pointr/AskPhotography

My current bag (which I absolutely love) is the AmazonBasics DSLR Bag. I've had it for over a year now and it's still in great condition, even after taking it for many hikes and beach trips. My only problem with it now is that I am running out of space as it is a kind of small bag.

Pros: Cheap, good camera and lens storage, has a tripod holder on the side, it's well organised

Cons: Small size, doesn't look that great.. Honestly, these are the only two cons I can think of, and they are both subjective.

​

If you think this could be a problem for you, there's also the bigger AmazonBasics DSLR and Laptop Bag. I haven't tried this bag, but I assume it is very similar to the smaller one (besides size, obviously).

I've also heard many good things about Lowepro 450AW.

​

I recently backed the Boundary Errant on Kickstarter. It's due to arrive around November, but I purchased this bag as an "all-rounder" bag so I could start carrying my camera everywhere with me, such as Uni, as it has an optional camera insert. It's a little pricier but I believe it will be a bag that can last for ages.

u/trackpete · 2 pointsr/photography

When I travel I prefer to go modular - usually that means throwing a sling into my backpack, then sticking a body + lense or two into the sling when I'm out and about. Even if I'm carrying a ton of gear, I'll often leave most of it in a hostel/etc. and just bring what I need for the day with me - it sucks to carry even a 55L pack around when you don't need it.

For general travel I really like the simple Canon camera bag with all the badging ripped off - I will typically put it inside a larger backpack or a waterproof duffel when I travel, giving me another modular layer (sometimes I carry that bag, sometimes just the sling, sometimes I have to carry it all).

Good luck!

u/deilin · 3 pointsr/photography

This Canon backpack is extremely nice for the price ($40). The only real drawback is that it has a big "Steal me!" Canon logo on the front. However, people have modified their bags to remove or cover up that logo, making it ideal for carrying a good amount of stuff. I have this one and am able to carry my 70-200 2.8IS (attached or not) as well as 2-3 other lenses and accessories.

This was going to be my suggestion! I have several little Pelican cases like these that I often take with me. They're not 100% waterproof, but they do a great job thrown up into the bow of my kayak when I'm going to be in it for a while. They're cheap, and have multiple sizes depending on what she may want to hold.

u/MettaWorldWarTwo · 4 pointsr/magicTCG

Amazon Basic DSLR Bags work great to carry your gear. However, I'd suggest figuring out what formats and decks you're realistically going to play and only bring what makes sense. This also limits the risk in case someone bag swipes you. I carry the linked DSLR bag with 1 EDH decks, and either my Modern or Standard deck along with associated supplies (sleeves, dice, mat). That's still ~$1200 but it's less than others I know who carry all their decks at once. Before I head out, I pull decks that I might want to play that night, narrow it down and then pack my bag. For FNM, I'll only carry a single deck. For a casual day, I'll carry 3-4 depending on the formats we might play (2 Pauper, 1-2 EDH, Modern Jank).

We have a private Discord for the people who are regulars at the LGS and I'll figure out if anyone wants to borrow a deck and I might bring one or two to loan out. Figure out what formats you're going to play before heading out and load up. Leave everything else at home.

u/burning1rr · 2 pointsr/SonyAlpha

I do a lot of lens swaps in the field. A holster bag provides a safe way to swap lenses. I also like the LowePro Lens-Exchange pouches.

If you want something larger, my advice is to look for a rear-entry backpack. They are designed to be accessible without setting the bag down. And the design is less likely to drop your lenses if a zipper comes loose. I use the Mindshift Backlight.

If you still want something like the SL100, take a look at the LowePro slingshot. I have one that I'm not using anymore. If you live in the US, I'll give it to you for the price of shipping, and maybe a donation to a charity.

u/mithikx · 1 pointr/Android

This may not be the best solution, but you can get one of those small waterproof Pelican or Otterbox type cases. Obviously you can't use it while it's in the case but it'd survive dropping in the pool or from a standing height like when on a bike.
i.e. http://www.amazon.com/OtterBox-WaterProof-Universal-Case-Black/dp/B001DAU5Q0/ref=pd_sim_e_5
http://www.amazon.com/Pelican-Black-Clear-Micro-Carabiner/dp/B001CNNEXE/ref=pd_sim_e_9

Alternatively you can get a water proof pouch such as this or this, you can get this and the pelican for added safety, or try and squeeze a traditional phone case in to the pouch.

u/jordanmunson · 16 pointsr/magicTCG

There’s an Amazon Basics bag for cameras that has worked wonderfully for me. This looks like a newer, cheaper model of it: AmazonBasics Backpack for SLR/DSLR Camera and Accessories - 11 x 6 x 15 Inches, Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002VPE1WK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_XihlDb3DDHV3J

u/travellingmonk · 1 pointr/CampingGear

How much camera gear do you want to carry vs. how much other gear?

When I want to carry 2 pro bodies and several lenses (24-70, 70-200 f/2.8, 150-600), I have a padded insert from a cheaper camera bag that I slide into my Black Diamond pack (since the BDel has a much better suspension than the cheap bag). It looks something like this but mine doesn't have the front cover so when it slips in my pack there's no padding. I can use a neoprene laptop sleeve tucked in or just a fleece stuffed in there if I need it. This takes up most of the bag, so there's not much room for other things, so it's mostly a day hike option.

If I'm only carrying the pro body and the 70-200 f/2.8, I've got a Mountainsmith Zoom Bag. I've got the "Large" which fits the pro body and 70-200 with hood reversed... but it looks like it's no longer made. This is a really bulky option, but protects the camera well. It also has straps so it can be strapped to the outside of the pack or on your chest... but I've never really used it that way.

If you don't have much camera gear, you can pick up a simple padded insert like the Ape Case. They have different sizes and a you can get more expensive ones as well as cheaper versions. The only thing I don't like about these smaller cases is that being heavy, they tend to sink to the bottom of the pack making it more difficult to get your camera out. Some packs have hooks near the top of the pack to hold up a hydration bladder, that sometimes works for smaller cameras.

Of course you can just wrap the camera up in a fleece and drop it in the pack. I do this often enough.

u/beararmedrobbery · 1 pointr/frugalmalefashion

I really like the bag inserts, but for this two week trip I had limited space so I used packing cubes and then padded lens pouches which I stuffed in between the cubes. For extra protection and to save space you can fit the lens hoods over the pouch on the mount end of your lens

What is a good camera hiking backpack for Canon EOS Rebel T5i?

Some details: this is a gift for my girlfriend, and it's her first camera. The hikes are just DAY hikes, so no need for a large, overnight backpack. Only needs to hold the camera, a couple lenses, and (optionally) a tripod. Looking for something under $150.

Thanks in advance!

edit: I saw this on Amazon. Any thoughts?

u/freeseasy · 339 pointsr/WhatsInThisThing

There are plenty of choices. Ammo cans are a great option, but after years of Geocaching, I've even seen those fail sometimes. My suggestion, if you want to bury it and keep the moisture from damaging the contents would be different chambers. Basically put a box in a bigger box. If you want to keep it small, get an ammo can and a Lock & Lock or Pelican case that will fit inside the ammo can. Put your treasure into the small box and stick that into the ammo can. For best assurance, I'd actually suspend the smaller box inside the ammo can with some expanding foam. If you want to go bigger, suspend the ammo can in a 5 gallon bucket with a lid secured on it (also with foam).

A common mistake that people make in Geocaching is to put the contents of the cache (specifically the log book) inside a cheap plastic bag. After moisture gets to the log, and inside the bag, it takes forever for it to leave. If you put a smaller box inside a larger box with foam all around, moisture will not be able to get to the treasure inside.

u/levins0 · 3 pointsr/PipeTobacco

Personally, I'd keep the tobacco stuff separate from the gameboy using two smaller cases (actually, I'd probably put the gameboy in a dry bag rather than a box/case).

If you want a hard case for all of that, best bet is probably a Pelican case similar to this one: https: //www.amazon.com/Pelican-1040-Micro-Case-Black-Clear/dp/B001GGBORU/ref=sr_1_2?s=hunting-fishing&ie=UTF8&qid=1479573813&sr=1-2&keywords=pelican+case . Note that this is a small one -- you probably need something larger.

The other option would be a Lock&Lock container like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Rectangular-Container-6-75-Cup-54-Fluid-Ounces/dp/B0000AN4CP/ref=sr_1_7?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1479573981&sr=1-7&keywords=lock+and+lock

It's not as tough as the Pelican, but it's cheaper and still water/air tight. Again, watch the sizes to make sure you get something that fits.

The smaller size might be good if you just want to carry the camera and a lens.

u/themcan · 2 pointsr/M43

I have one of these as my "store everything" bag, but generally for going out to shoot I have a much smaller bag (I think I got from Wal-Mart) that perfectly fits my 14-42EZ, 25mm f/1.8, and either an adapted 50mm or the 40-150 f/4-5.6 on the camera (facing down), along with a spare battery.

I have a pretty broad chest, so the front straps came up pretty high on me and the backpack overall seems to sit higher up on your back (even with the back straps at their loosest) than any other backpack I own, but other than that, I like it.

I have the nice and cheap AmazonBasics Sling Backpack for SLR Cameras. It is a nice and cheap $20. I am able to fit my camera, 70-200mm, 30mm, 16-70mm in the main compartment. If I don't mind it being crowded I can also fit 50mm and 135mm w/ adapter. Then in the side compartment I can fit the usual amount of accessories. The padding is fine, I do wish it had a bigger side compartment, which itself was more compartmentalized. My only complaint with it is the slinging part isn't as good as I thought but that could be because I don't everything set up right inside the bag.

Check the Lowepro Fastpack 350. I don't carry as much as you (yet) but it holds all my gear with room to spare plus a rather thick 17" laptop. There doesn't seem to be a way to readily attach a tripod, but it could probably be done with some extra straps or zip ties. I just bought the backpack a couple weeks ago, so I haven't flown with it or done any long walks/hikes yet, but it's pretty comfortable so far. You can't really get to the camera compartment while you're wearing it, but that is probably the case with most backpacks. Sling bags are a little more convenient for that, but I find them uncomfortable on long walks or hikes over rough terrain.

They do, The 1060, which is shallower and longer, The 1050 which is shallower, and The 1020 which is the smallest. The dimensions are on the page under product description. You might think about getting a larger one and storing other things like your phone or whatever in it as well? that way it has more utility and the size would be justified.

Upgraded from the Nikon bag I got free with my camera. The Amazon bag holds 3 yongnou flashes, cam body, 50mm 1.4g in the slots. Resting on top is another flash and rocket blower. In the compartments are 16spare AA batteries, rf-603 receivers, charger, cables and omni bounces.

Only use it to keep stuff together at home. Normaly just carry camera by itself

Would something like these be good for use in a backpack you already have? If your main concern is protecting the lenses more than organizing? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MJ3RC8E/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_ncFlzbEDX43ND

I use a Canon SLR Backpack. It has velcro dividers which are perfect for arranging to fit decks. I can't recommend it enough. I carry 4 EDH decks, 1 modern, 2 extra deck boxes, 1 large binder, 2 small binders in the front pocket, my playmat using the tripod holder, and all my dice and tokens. There's still a little room for another deck and extra pockets for other things, too.

Maybe something like this tethered to your yak with a carabiner. and throw a desiccant pack in there to be safe.
