In this week’s episode, we discuss my travel camera gear for landscape photography. Traveling as light as possible while heading out on a landscape photography trip is something that’s very important to me. I’ve spent years trying to narrow down the camera gear I travel with while also ensuring that I have everything I need to create the landscape photos I’m after. In addition to minimizing the camera gear I carry, I’ve also been searching for the perfect camera bag to travel with as well and I think I’ve finally landed on my favorite.

In this video, I review all the landscape photography camera gear and accessories that I bring while on a multi-day photography trip. Some of the gear mentioned I’ve used for years and others I’ve just purchased in the last couple months or weeks. Traveling for landscape photography requires much more than just camera bodies and lenses, but also all the accessories and computer related equipment required to edit and backup your photos while on-location. As you can imagine all of this gear adds up quickly and ensuring that your bag can be carried on a flight without having to check it is of utmost importance.

Knock on wood, but I’ve never been asked to check my camera bag before a flight, but the possibility of this occurring is always in the back of my mind. And for this reason, I always try to minimize the amount of travel camera gear I carry for a landscape photography trip.

What camera bag are you using right now?

Stephen Spader says:

Love your videos. I’m always learning something new.

ethannf502 says:

This is so cool!

Jason Novak says:

Hi Mark! Another great video. Was wondering if you’ve heard of the Mindshift Elite 45 bag? It looks like the perfect all around camera travel bag. Would love to see you do a review of it. Also, could you please do a video about your process for downloading and storing files once you’re back home? I’m always looking for ways to improve this aspect of my photography.

Hugh Wolfe says:

Lots of good insightful information Mark, thank you for all the links. I’ve been considering an additional camera, perhaps a D850 or a Z series, so I may need to upgrade the camera bag at some point.

Carl Reid says:

Thanks for sharing Mark some good ideas in this video cheers! I'll check out your gear description for my next online shopping trip 😉

Robert Nelson says:

The hybrid shooter YouTuber has some very good videos on the DGI pocket very thoroughly done

Anand .Sie says:

Hey mark, I also have the atlas bag. WHen I use the load tensioners to tighen the bag. It slips for like a 0,5 cm. Do you experience the same? Or do you pull it tight and it sits?

Richard Zelinka says:

Thanks for the video. The question I always have when I watch one of these "what's in my travel bag" videos is how you deal with the airline rules that restrict the total weight of all carry-on luggage and bags to a measly 8, 10 or 12 kg, depending on the airline. I assume you bring that rather large backpack on the plane with you as you would never check it, and that it exceeds these limits. My carry-on backpack and camera bag are both quite small, but they have been weighed by several European airlines at check-in and I have been hassled even when I'm over the limit by just 1 kg. It is a real pain and a big reason why I will be switching to lighter mirrorless gear at some point.

Erick Lindberg says:

Informative video Mark. I am leaving tomorrow morning for Florida for a few days of R&R. Wish I seen this video sooner for some ideas of what to buy to help keep organized! Taking a backpack and that's it, so I need to get creative with how I pack. See you next week my friend!

travis branum says:

I've used my 12.9 iPad Pro for a while now and love it. Even though I bought a 27 iMac I still use my iPad to edit a lot. I like doing my edits when I travel at the end of each day and not wait till I'm home to do them but that's me. I know the LRcc version doesn't do everything but it does the things I need for the most part.

Erika Velázquez says:

Hi Mark,
What tripod do you bring on your travels?
I have two bags for traveling (Athlete AtlasPacks for my Canon & Everyday Peak Design 20L for my Olympus). For work and street: 10L Peak Design Sling-Canon and a little 9”w x 7” h x 5” d leather messenger bag for my Olympus to bring to my work (residential construction). I don’t want to damage the big lenses with all the dust produced on the job site.
It sounds too many bags, but I use all of them.

Iftikhar says:

Sorry Mark I couldn't watch your videos for the past few weeks. I don't know if you know about Jammu and Kashmir (Indian occupied Kashmir), we were under siege and the Indian government had snapped the Internet here and still it's not working but right now I am out of my country that's why I am able to watch your videos. Thank you the videos

Optically Deluded says:

Hey Mark. Its come to my attention that the wall clock in the background isnt working. You should fix that mate 😀

Manoel Antunes Martins Neto says:

Hi there, do you have some tip to clean the Shimoda, after your review I got one, just regret to buy the another colour, But it's amazing bag.. thanks for the tip to buy it.

Brano says:

Thanks for this video as always tons of informations. What strap do you use? Do you have some videos (maybe moore detailed lightroom turtorials)on that skillshare too?

Payon Rai says:

I want to learn how color grade the landscape photo in lightroom??

cii1072 says:

Nice video. I've watched many of your videos and always learn something. I enjoy your presentation style.

Frederic BONNEAU Photography says:

Appreciate your commentaries and photography! Q about the bag is it comfortable to wear? Does it have room for hiking gears? Does it come with a rain cover or you have to buy it separately? Do you carry the tripod on the side or on the back? Does it have room for a water bladder? How many liters is the larger size? And can it carry a larger prime lens like a 600mm. Please expend. Thank you.

Fabien Butazzi says:

man, where's the Rubik's cube?

Brett Repman says:

Great info as always! Thanks for putting this together

Mike Smith says:
