I think that a photographer should use whatever brand of camera that they like and can afford. I’m a thrifty shopper and many of my cameras were purchased used or as “refurbs” at less than retail price. But over the years other photographers have asked me what gear I you use for my glamour and automobile photography? The equipment used for both genres is similar and I keep most of my gear in specific backpacks so that I can grab one, two or three of the bags and go. Tip: I keep chargers for each camera in each backpack. Here’s how they are organized—

When I want to travel light, I have a Think Tank CityWalker 10 shoulder bag for my Olympus E-P3 along with Panasonic G2 and GF3 Micro Four-thirds cameras along with five lenses and accessories.
