What`s in my bag?

Fredrik Rasmussen's backpack
This is how my backpack is usually packed for snow/skateboard photography

So what is in my backpack?

First off the backpack is a Burton Zoom. This is simply the best* backpack I've ever used, that said this backpack could still be improved. This is also a fairly small backpack. One of the key features of the backpack is that it Opens from the back(you don't have to worry about you`r camera stuff flying out while snowboarding with this backpack).

*This is based on the Burton Zoom pack 2004/05 model. The 2009/10 backpack has severe problems and can not be recommended if you use any of Nikon pro sized Dslrs.

The most usual setup of my backpack is as follows:

  • Main Camera Nikon D3
  • Backup: Nikon F, or F5
  • Nikon D2H IR


Other stuff:

  • Nikon TC 20EII (2x converter)
  • Nikon TC 14E (1.4x converter)
  • SB-900
  • 4 X 8 GB CF
  • Nikon slim pola

Other setups is a mix of equipment, depending on type of shots, assignments etc.
