In any case, one of the bags was filled with camera gear, a rolling case from jLab (no, I've never heard of them either) that I poached from Groupon for like $30. Score! The bag's got the following:
- Panasonic GH2 with 12-35 F2.8
- Nikon 1 V1 with 10-30, 30-110, 10/28, and 18/1.8 lenses
- Panasonic LX-7
- Pentax Q with 5-15 and 01 Standard Prime
- Pentax K-01 with FA43
- Merlin Steadicam 2
- Switronix TorchLED light
- small reflector
- chargers, batteries, memory cards
- Apple Macbook Pro
- Apple iPad
- the kitchen sink
The Panasonic LX7 and Nikon 1 have gotten the most use so far; they are just so small and convenient that they always end up in our backpack. The review is for NewMotor, a digital publication, so the highest resolution that we're going to need is for an iPad with Retina Display, 2048 by 1536 pixels. The LX7 and Nikon 1 will be able to handle that no problem; heck nearly all digital cams will be able to handle that.
I feel a bit guilty about bringing the Pentaxes along, or to be more precise, about leaving them behind. They're both great cameras but a luxury for this project. I guess that it's one of those things where if you've got a big bag you'll be sure to fill it. I think I'll bring out the FA43 today; that lens needs a workout...
