My nature wandering kit
Lately, I've been hiking and wandering with a small amount of camera gear. My current choice of gear is a Panasonic FZ300 and a Sony RX100. I keep the FZ300 around my neck for wildlife opportunities and the RX100 in a LowePro Inverse 200 hip bag. I'm quite surprised that LowePro discontinued this series of camera bag.
The FZ300 is a very enjoyable camera to use and excels at macro photography, especially if paired with my Raynox 150 macro lens. If I encounter any landscapes that are beyond the capability of the FZ300, I have the RX100 in my hip bag. Sony came up with a gem of a camera with the RX100 series. The Zeiss lens and 1" sensor in a pocketable camera produce some wonderful photos.
In the hip pack, I carry a small notebook, a bug net, a water bottle, filters (polarizers and Raynox), and spare batteries. There's plenty of room for a few snacks or a small lunch. Sometimes traveling light is more liberating and shifts the emphasis from photography to enjoying time spent in nature.
