I am off to the US for a month at the weekend... I was packing my gear today and thought I would make a quick video of the packing process

Just a bit of fun... But I do love the Tenba bag as my travel bag... it carries all the essential/valuable stuff and the Domke is stuffed with extra stuff goes in the check in baggage, to be used as the day bag at my destination

cheers

Excellent.

I think we use the same little stuff bags with the mesh tops. They're great.

i picked them up for 10 dollars in a serious camping/outdoor store in LA .. they are great for pulling all those little bits together... I have another one that holds my sound stuff... they usually remain packed between trips

cheers

I noticed that too,both video and music ended perfectly at the same time.
are you heading here in LA again ?
it was total luck.. i had shot the video and then looked for a bit of audio.

I arrive LA saturday night, then bounce out to Maui for a week .. then am in LA for the rest of May.... maybe we should arrange a meetup ?

Great video!
I'm not the only one that spends so long choosing/packing gear that I forget to pack clothes then...

Nice. Have you considered putting those cables in separate compartments/pockets? When they're all in the same pouch you're likely to have a hanger-on accidentally yanked out and possibly fall on the ground without you realizing it. Plus, the tangling.

Cool! Why two Go Pros?

because I have 2 gopros :).... and if you have 2 cameras and a couple of teenage relatives in a swimming pool you can do this

Also on this trip I will be in a garden in Maui where I know a lot of birds will be feeding, and I may want to set up a couple of cameras. Gopros aren't just about dangerous sport type things

Looks like the case that Olympus supplied with the 50-200mm. It actually proved to be very good as
a small bag for carrying up two two bodies and three or four small lenses.

quite correct nic

when I was shooting with the E-510, then the 50-200 lived in the camera bag, but now with the E-M1, it only travels with me on special occasions, and the original case is great for putting in the check in luggage - its a robust and well padded case

thanks david

the fascinating thing to me about the pool video was I just gave them the cameras, they had no instruction,no experience of filming beyond their iphones, they couldn't review their footage and yet they managed to produce some great shots.

cheers
