My Camera Bag (Domke J3)

My Camera Bag (Domke J3)

South Berwick, ME

(Finally caught up)

I've never posted a camera bag shot and I am running late on today's PaD, so here's my camera bag.

It's a Domke J-3 (as the title states).

I love this bag!

I have the padded inserts in the left side compartment where I have my 580-EX2 Strobe and a Giotto's Rocket blower. At some point, I will get another 580-EX2 and it will fit in here (then I need to worry about where the Rocket Blower goes).

I removed the padded insert on the right side compartment, I have spare AA batteries, a little case with my Cactus Triggers in it (one set), three ND filters, and one CPL filter.

The front compartment has an eBay remote timer trigger, whibal card, my CF card case, a few loose CF cards (in small cases), spare 40D battery, an allen wrench for my RRS quick release plates, a generic RRS quick release plate (for my other cameras). When traveling, I put the battery charger in the front compartment as well.

On the rear is a slot, I've put a couple of better bounce cards in there (fits perfectly).

The zippered pouch on the case cover has my MacBeth color card, filter ring adapters, lens & sensor pens, and a regular pen.

The main compartment has my 40D with the EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 IS with hood mounted, the 70-200 F4L with hood mounted, and my 100mm f/2.8 Macro lens. I have a lensbabies 3G coming in that will fit above the 100mm Macro lens (I will need a small pad to put between the two lenses.

Clipped to the carrying strap with a small carabiner is a zippered canvas pouch I bought at The Home Depot (for documents). I put all my velcro'd gels in it (hard to see in the photo).

I know where everything is, I can grab what I need without looking, something I've had to do numerous times. It is not overly heavy, I took it on a few short hikes when we were in Bar Harbor (Maine) last week and it wasn't uncomfortable. For long hikes, I use my Tamrac backpack.

I was actually able to bungee my tripod (Bogen 055 MF3) to the top of the bag on a few of those short hikes. It helped a lot.
