Every Wednesday through the end of the year we’ll be talking about cameras!
But first … how to carry all this stuff around? Between my toy/vintage cameras and my dSLR equipment, I own far too many to fit even in my big camera case.
And my camera BAG itself is more like a suitcase.
I use the Think Tank Airport International V 2.0 for weddings …. I just use a plain messenger bag for portrait shoots or larger family events …. and I just use my purse* for day-to-day photos.
The Think Tank is PERFECT for traveling. I have photographed weddings in other states, as well as in Italy, and this case is super sturdy and protects the equipment well, it’s the perfect size for a plane-carry-on, and you can fit a lot inside!
Depending on what I’m shooting I’ll bring along one or more of the following ….
My collection includes:
- Diana mini
- Fuji Instax mini
- vintage Polaroid
- vintage Polaroid Land Camera
- Kodak Deux
- Super 8mm video camera
- Canon 30D (dSLR)
- Canon 50D (dSLR)
- Canon 5D (dSLR)
along with any number of my SLR lenses ….
I can’t wait to show you these fun cameras and what you can do with them …. PLUS this blog series gives me an excuse to practice using these cameras again which I DEFINITELY need. I am NOT an expert by any means.
As you’ll see with my sample images for each of these toy/vintage cameras
Do you have any toy or vintage cameras you just love?!
*I deliberately buy purses that are large enough
to carry my camera AND a book if I want.
