What’s in my camera bag?

I currently shoot with a Nikon D750 DSLR, which I recently purchased last fall.  This serves as my primary body.  It’s normally fitted with an MB-D16 battery grip to take photos in portrait view, as well as, provide an extra battery for extended photo taking.  To mount my camera on a tripod I use an L-bracket from Really Right Stuff (RRS) and I would highly recommend using an L-bracket for mounting your camera on a tripod in either landscape or portrait view.  My tripod is a Manfrotto 055CXPRO4 carbon tripod equipped with an RRS B-40 ball head.  I also use a Sirui carbon monopole with an RRS MH-01 LR head that I use on long hikes, sports photography, or birding as it is light and portable.  

As for lenses, I have Nikon and Tamron lenses, including the Nikkor 24-70mm f2.8,  Nikkor 70-200mm f2.8, and Tamron  15-30mm f2.8 VC lenses that are my primary lenses in my camera bag.  In the bag is a Sigma 105MM f2.8 macro lens as well.  My primary camera bag is the medium Tenba shootout bag that provides sufficient room for my battery charger, SB-900, filters, and other assorted items.  This bag is comfortable and convenient to travel with and fits in the overhead storage bins on airlines.  I also have a Tenba roller camera bag that is useful in urban settings.  

While not in my bag, as it’s a bit big, but I take on local outings is my Tamron SP 150-600mm ATX DI G2 f5/6.3 telephoto lens for extended reach in wildlife and sports photography.  Other lenses that I use include two (2) prime Nikon lens, the 35mm f2.0 and 50mm f1.4.  I usually carry an assortment of filters, including circular polarizing, neutral density, split neutral density and a 77 mm variable neutral density filters.  Lastly, for flash photography, I have both the SB-600 and SB-900 Nikon speedlites.
