LARGE photos under this cut.
9mm asked for a photo and description of all my photo gear, so here it is.
most of it.
Ok, so here we have my equipment that's in Boston.
Each square is a different set.
lists will be left to right, bottom row first.
Canon Digital Rebel with 18-55mm kit lens
In the red square:
Mounted on it, vertical grip with double battery compartment.
1gb CF card and infrared remote trigger
Canon 28-135mm f3.5-5.6, USM IS (the shiny lens)
Sigma EF-500 DG Super flash
some crappy tiny tripod with spider legs
In the blue square:
a magenta square containing my cameraphone. ^_^
Miranda Sensorex w/50mm f1.8 lens
Vivitar 285HV Zoom Thyristor flash with "Vari Power"
two polarizing filters (for the 50 and the wide)
cheapo tiny tripod with stiff legs
21mm 3.8f wide angle Soligor lens
2x teleconverter for Miranda
90-230mm 4.5f Telezoom Soligor lens
And in the green square:
Minolta Maxxum 7000 with 50mm lens f1.7
Minolta Maxxum 2800 AF Flash
Minolta Maxxum 100-300mm Zoom xi lens w/macro, f4.5-5.6
Across the top:
crumpler camera bag (sweetness. http://www.crumplerusa.com )
generic camera bag from 30 years ago (or so)
And on the right:
New Benbo Tripod. (love these so much)
This is my paternal grandfather's old photo gear that no one else wanted when he died. I couldn't bear to let it go to the estate auction, so it's mine now.
I don't have all this in front of me, so the specs will be from memory as best I can.
Bottom left to top left:
Canon FTb Body
Some remote thing for I don't know what
Canon 2x teleconverter
In small orange box: a clockwork time-delay shutter-release. Very cool little thingy.
a plain old cable-release
Canon A1 Body
Large rubber lens shade for the medium sized lens
A sliding side flash mount
An old Kodak Disk-film camera.
Lenses (all FD mount):
100-300mm telezoom, f5.6
35-105mm (I think), f3.5
two small square flashes in cases
Polarizing and UV filters
T4 adapter for the zoom lenses
And there you have it.
I have some non-functional stuff too, that's real purty but can't count as cameras at the moment. ^_^
i love crumpler bags! they had them for sale when i went to the giftshop at the eastman house like 3 years ago, and i'm still drooling over them.
they're so expensive though!
yeah, they're not cheap, but damn are they wonderful. I have the photo bag and I also have a shoulder laptop bag that I carry to work everyday.
Lifetime warranty too, makes the price a little easier to bear. If a buckle breaks, or if the strap breaks, or the velcro wears out, they'll fix it free, forever. Pretty cool. I plan to carry mine for a good chunk of forever.

Ahhh I see you know the wisdom of the vertical grip as well. Very nice sir. Although Im amused that you included your camera phone.
Disc film = BAD STAB KILL
Checking out these Crumpler bags now....
vertical grip 4 t3h win!
Crumplers can be hard to find, but they're awesome, sturdy, padded bags.
If you do get one, get a slightly larger one than you think you'll need. They're so padded it kill some of the space available.

If I could navigate their SITE!!!! Christ its like trying to go through the BooBah web page!
oh yeah, the flash site sucks.
do some googling on "crumpler bags", you'll find some resellers with far easier pages.
