What would I do without this bag! Even at a young age (23), I’d more than likely be at the chiropractor. It fits in most overhead bins while flying. Think Tank also has some of the best customer service out there!

The best camera in my arsenal usually accompanies my 400 when covering most sporting events. To get in tight, I may also attach my 1.4x TC to my 400 as well for the extra reach. There are always plenty of intense moments within a scrum.
- 1D Mark III
I typically pair my Mark III with my 70-200 slung around my shoulder as a second body for action that may not fit within the frame of a 400. In football or soccer it’s perfect for most scores and celebrations.
- 1D Mark II
Depending on the sporting event, it is either my third body that hangs around with neck to cover any action that happens right in front of me with a 24-70 (football, baseball, hockey) or setup as a remote camera (basketball). The 17-40 is great for those wide stadium overalls, the end-of-game coach’s handshake, or any other great on-field jubilation.
