When the FED Team hits a city, we like to travel light and be able to move around fast. Our goal is to carry minimal equipment and fit in like a local. We often need to shoot in a combination of lighting scenarios, from dimly lit bars and restaurants to bright city streets. Here are recommendations from the FEDitors for an on-the-go day pack.
