What's New in the Bag

As you may know, I am about to start school on Monday. I had orientation today where we went over our supply list. Whew! It was not a short (or cheap) list but I am so psyched about the things I will be acquiring/using over the course of the next nine months. Here are some of the basics:
The camera (obviously!). Luckily my Canon 5D Mark II fit the school's standards (as well as one of the lenses I have for it- the 24-105mm f/4).

2-3 Memory cards. Smaller storage is advised- if you use only one card for an assignment and then something happens to the card, you're screwed! So it's always good to use several.
Portable hard drive. We were told that these will definitely eventually fail and to expect that. While they are working, they are pretty essential so I ordered this OWC Mercury On-the-Go Portable FW800&400 (500gb).

Next on the list- a Speedlight 580EXII, a tripod and ball head (probably a Manfrotto), and all kinds of software/upgrades. I'll keep you posted!

What's in your camera bag?
