I keep all my gear in a small office room that can be locked. It is on the 2nd floor (save from water/flooding). It is a dry room. Most of the gear is stored in a back-pack. So in case it is needed, I can quickly get it and go. My studio equipment is also stored in the office room. Because the room is locked, it is save for my children.
My back-pack is a Kata Slingbag (holds 2 DSLR, several lenses, flash, tripod/monopod and other assecoires)
Just a late security inspired thought...some posters have put up some fairly specific information that may be useful to some mongrel who wanted gear for free...You had better believe we're all quite easy to locate. Underestimate the criminal mind at your peril.
Until you have been burgled, you think it's never going to happen to you. We got done recently on a noisy stormy night while we were asleep upstairs. It's a horrible, expensive, breathtakingly time consuming affair.
Consider editing your posts with personal security in mind . This world isn't all sweetness and light. That's reality.
Ah, yes. Right!
Good of you to bring that under my attention. Well, I guess I am a bit naÃ¯ve. I will consider this with my next posts.
As for the storage of my gear: I have to relocate that - or split up. Lucky I have some other hidden chambers in this palace of mine
