I picked up a set of Padded Dividers for my Pelican 1500 Case. This Case is a great size holding a days worth of gear for travel and remaining under the legal size for carry on baggage.

Crumpler Barney Rustle Blanket + Bucket

I’ve been a fan of Crumpler bags for Years. Having owned countless since 2003. My recent purchase was a Bucket for what was, my daily bag, a yellow and Red Barney Rustle Blanket. The bucket transformed the messenger bag into a over the shoulder Camera Bag, Well padded and protected from the day to day bumps of travel. The bucket swallows a mammoth amount of gear yet remains protected. I was able to fit my Gripped Canon 20D, 3 x Flashes with Remote Triggers as well as the Brikc, Canon’s 24-70 F2.8L lens and the Kit 70-300 Lens.

Custom Crumpler Barney Rustle Blanket Cats Bag

I’m a big fan of both the Geelong Football Club and Crumpler Bags. Having a Crumpler Barney Rustle Blanket as a daily bag, I decided it needed the pow factor of the GFC Cat! I put an ordinary image together combining the logo on a photo of my current Bag and emailed it off to the fine people at the Crumpler Custom Bag shop. The mocked up a design and we picked the custom colour scheme. Once approved it took about 2 weeks to make. Sure it cost a bit more than the standard bag, but I know there are only 2 bags out there holding the Famous Geelong Cats Logo.

New Camera – Canon 20D with Battery Grip

I’ve switched from Pentax to Canon. Mainly due to the great variety of lenses and I feel the Canon body is just that little bit better than Pentax. I hadn’t spent big $$ on any of my Pentax so it was an easy transition. Now to aquire a 70-200 F4L, 24-105mm L, 10-22 EFS and 50mm F1.8 lens.
