What's in my bag... European Travel assignment

During our travel shoot in Rome, Venice, Paris, Switzerland and London we have to make sure that the appropriate equipment is on hand. On this trip we decided to move our equipment around in the ThinkTank Streetwalker Harddrive Backpack. We have a ThinkTank rolling bag but didn't think it was appropriate for rolling on the cobble stone roads and sidewalks. Being a Nikon shooter of course we packed a couple of Nikon Cameras, lens and accessories...
