The 7KG Bag

This is a ‘what’s-in-the-bag’ movie that shows how Mark Galer packs his camera bag for travel and stays under the 7KG carry-on weight limit imposed by many airline companies. Mark Galer and Abhijit Chattaraj of the team discuss the value of each item in the bag and the importance of choosing the appropriate bag for travel. We have broken down the weight by listing each item individually and the total weight allows for an additional pack that includes the battery charger, spare batteries, memory cards, filters, external drive (a light weight master drive) and cleaning equipment.
