A perennial problem. These days I travel as light as possible whilst retaining as much flexibility as I can. So its zoom lenses - 12-24mm, 16-45mm, 50-200mm. Pentax K10D body. Billingham Hadley bag. Spare battery.

Most filter effects can be done in Photoshop, so no need to carry all sorts of extra bits and pieces. Perhaps a polariser.

Thanks,John for your response.

Some people I know travel with only a 35-70mm and a 70-210mm zoom + a circular polarizer.

When it comes to a camera bag,some go to an Army and Navy store and buy military-type small bags so it doesn't look like camera eqpt.

Any opinions?

I think you need a bag that protects the equipment, and that means a camera bag. I think most thieves will be wise to attempts to conceal our cameras, probably when they watch us take out the camera to take a photograph!

So be vigilant and avoid travelling alone...
