A Great Bag for all the Landscape Essentials

Over the past few weeks, I have been streamlining my equipment. Since I started shooting large format, I’ve carried all the essential equipment (meter, grad filters, stop watch, cable release, notes, etc) in a Lowepro Street & Field setup. The deluxe waistbelt + utility pouches allowed easy access while shooting. Though very convenient while shooting, this setup was difficult to store in my Gregory or Osprey backpacks.

Enter the Tamrac Zuma 2 iPad case — that’s right, an iPad case. This thin, streamlined case has two primary compartments: one for an Apple iPad, and the other for various supplies including a Canon G12, memory cards, wireless keyboard, etc. The iPad compartment is — of course — padded, and is a great place to put my Sekonic light meter, and all 4 of my graduated neutral density filters. The second compartment is perfect for my stopwatch, tape measure, notebook, cable releases, and some other filters.

While shooting, I can either sling this case across my body like a messenger bag, or hang it from the hook on my tripod. Either way, I have easy access to all my shooting essentials. Because of the low profile shape of this bag, I can easily stuff it into my Gregory Whitney 95, or my smaller Osprey Atmos 65.
